We had a terrific experience. Margie was there when we needed her and not at all intrusive. Arrival was easy, the directions were excellent, and the location was perfect for us. The park was close by. The space was perfect for us - sleeping, reading on some comfy chairs, kitchen with eat-in table, and bath with shower & tub. Definately...

We stayed in Suite 1 and it had everything we needed for a great 3 days in the desert. We had 2 days of rain so took advantage of the living room for hanging out and made use of the well stocked kitchen. Beautiful décor with high quality linens and towels. Overall a delightful place to stay!

"Casita" studio was nicely designed with beautiful colors and outdoor patio, and adequate coffee maker/refrig set up. Great suggestions for food and shopping in the area. Joshua Tree trails are within a short drive, and good breakfast places are nearby so I did not miss microwave. Mindy is a friendly and accessible host.

Spin and Margie's was a great little find for a few days away hiking and climbing around Joshua Tree National Park. It's location makes it so easy to access the West entrance to the park where there is great hiking and bouldering within minutes from the gate. We had Cabin #5 and loved it. Nice mid-century/lost in the wild/ecclectic vibe...

We absolutely love this place and will definitely stay there again if we revisit Joshua Tree. The place is so charming and the owners made sure we had everything we needed. They even made sure the outdoor grill was ready for our use to grill our Christmas dinner! From the first phone call to make my reservation I could tell...

Spin and Margie's was beautiful, clean and simple. It was a great place to stay while hiking and exploring Joshua Tree with our family. The little house had everything we needed and check in and out was easy. I would recommend it and stay there again myself!

Everything was great! The room was comfortable, cosy and very clean and the kitchen well equipped. Also, the location is kind of perfect, only minutes away from Joshua Tree NP entrance. We had the best time!

This is like our second home. It is everything we want in a getaway. We go back every year, especially when we need to recharge. It is clean, cozy and has everything one needs to escape. The rooms and grounds are adorable in a desert-fun style. The kitchens are well-equipped to make for a wonderful isolated romantic or family vacation...

Came with friends and we stayed in Sonoran Traveler-which was comfortable and charming. Just like last time, Spin and Margie had thought of everything we might need. Great location for hiking, a night out at Pappy and Harriet's, an Integratron experience and one more visit to Noah Purifoy's magical space.In all, a great trip.

What a find! The location is great for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area. We stayed in the Sonoran Suite for two nights and found it perfect. The Suite was spacious, tastefully decorated, and extremely clean. The kitchenette allowed us the flexibility to eat in after a long day of hiking and to enjoy the sunsets from...
