Once again S&M's (should we say that?) did not disappoint. What makes it special? Besides the location and quaint surroundings, Mindy and Drew themselves -- fantastic people with smart heads and warm souls. This time they pointed us in the direction of Noah Purfoy's outdoor installation a few clicks away -- an unexpected treat. The cabins and grounds are always so immaculate, and we commented to them about that. They seem to take a personal interest in the property. What's more, Drew is a great photographer who shows at a local gallery; the two of them are well known and respected around town. We'll be back again.

Room Tip: Our first stay featured a great bathroom space; this time, no. 2 was a little tight... the only draw back. We'd head for the first cabin in a heartbeat next time.

Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway provided the experience that we expected. If you read the reviews and look at the photos on Trip Advisor, they are perfectly accurate. Margie was so helpful in every way, from even the first phone conversation, it was like going to visit a friend. Make sure to leave time to enjoy the property. The sculptures, the light, the artistic touches every where really enhance the stay. We had a friend meet us there, and she was delighted also, and plans to return.

Room Tip: We had never been to Joshua Tree in the Spring and highly recommend this time of year. sunny during the day, nice and cool at night!

We loved this place!! The two of us ended up in room 1, which is the biggest accommodation. Very large, living room, dining room, full kitchen, bed in alcove area, and a separate bedroom. There were so much attention to detail, from the wall colors, to the CD collection, to the hand-painted tiles. Room 1 also has its own private walled in large patio, not to mention a lovely courtyard in front with a garden and lovely touches. We met Margie on our second day, and she was delightful. Highly recommend this desert getaway. Also, be sure to visit Noah's sculpture garden (about a 10 minute drive) if you are at all interested in art.

Spin and Margie's is comfortable, wonderfully decorated, so conveniently located to visit Joshua Tree Nat'l Park. We stayed in the Cactus Wren cabin and felt like home away from home:-) We always look for wildlife and at Spin and Margies's we were treated to a variety of birds right out on our patio.

Room Tip: We liked Cactus Wren because we are sort of a private couple. However, the other four units share a lovely courtyard and those units have kitchenettes.

We loved our stay at Spin & Margies! The atmosphere was simply lovely, and we were so comfortable. We truly felt "hidden away" and plan to return soon. Thank you so much!
