Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful feeling away from home We stayed for nights during December 2017. The home was perfect for what we wanted. All the elements of the house fit beautifully and make you want to stay at the house all day rather than go do activities outdoor. There is a beautiful warmth to the house. We enjoyed the hot tub, the outdoor spaces, the ping pong table. The home also allowed for cooking of all kinds - the kitchen is well appointed and the outdoor grill was great. The landscaping, views, and lighting both inside and outside the house were fantastic - creating a wonderful feeling in a desert environment. Lastly, the small touches also made for a very wonderful feeling of comfort. For example, the bed sheets were high end, super soft and very comfortable. As were the towels. All in all, we would fully recommend this property to anyone. And we would love to visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern luxuries in a picturesque location This was the perfect ending to our spring break road trip with our teens. The wheelhouse is an expertly decorated ranch home just inside 29 Palms city limits, yet remote enough to provide a sense of retreat while you watch incredible sunsets and stargaze by the pool, firepit or jetted spa. We stayed in a lot of our places during our time in Arizona and California, but the Wheelhouse was definitely the highlight of our trip!
