Perfect stay at SweetHeartRidge
I wanted to thank Susan and Ed for making our stay so perfect for our trip to Joshua Tree. We arrived during some unusual cold and windy weather. House was so warm, clean and tended to with heart. We slept well, relaxed and cooked a little. It has everything you might need and is immaculately clean. The grounds that we got to enjoy at the end of our stay when the winds died down are beautiful and again tended to with heart. There is a perfect place to make a fire, there are all kind of cacti and amazing plants, set for game of horseshoe and awesome view of the hills and big blue sky.
Nice hidden gem
Really well cared for property. Owners take a lot of personal pride in this offering and inside it is immaculate as well as carefully thought out and cared for grounds. Very convenient location to both Joshua Tree NP and Pioneertown. We will definitely stay here again next time we plan a hike through Joshua Tree.
Peaceful & Heavenly
Don't have the perfect words to describe this amazing place. It's peaceful and so clean, all u need is your toothbrush and paste. Ed and Susan are wonderful and very knowledgeable hosts, we had a blast hearing about their travels. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us, we will definitely return and recommend to friends.
Great desert rental, convenient location and the best owners ever!
We really enjoyed staying at Sweetheart Ridge. It was very accommodating and looks just like the pictures show. It was exactly what we were looking for to get away for some desert fun. The mobile home is like almost brand new, immaculately clean, nicely decorated and has everything you need. It was Thanksgiving and Susan even had oven bags and foil pans for my dinner in the pantry. She provided a complimentary jar of homemade mulberry jam that was very good and a nice touch! She also had some canned fresh mulberries, apples and candied jalapeños that were the best and we bought almost everything she had to take home. We are now hooked on them. Ed and Susan were really nice and easy to work with. They always responded promptly when communicating before, up to our arrival and during the stay. The living area furniture was comfortable, the kitchen is stocked with newer dishes and has an island with newer pots and pans. The master bedroom was a nice size with newer furniture and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the outside fire pit and sitting area and even got to see a few shooting stars. Ed and Susan are great owners to rent from and their son was the best off road guide ever. He was incredible leading in his Razor with Susan, my husband and I in our Jeep, another family in a new 4X4 Toyota Tundra truck and Ed in his 4x4 Conversion Van going through the desert mountain trails. There was no road too small to get through even though there were some that were pretty tight and rocky. The 4x4 off road adventure was so much fun. We had a great stay and are very fortunate to have made new friends. Thank you Ed and Susan for everything! You guys have an awesome desert retreat! We are coming back soon! Thank you! Sharon and Donnie
Sharon and Donnie, it was our intent as host to make you feel at home and support your endeavor of desert exploration, adventure, and fun. Your time with us quickly turned into a rare magical event due to our similar life experiences, outlook on life, and ability to easily find humor during conversation on any topic. It was the both of you who provided us, warmth of friendship, belly laughs, and immense fun. Honestly, the day after your departure, we found ourselves a little lost, sad, and very much missing you as we had a great time and so enjoyed your company. It’s our profound hope that we will again share laughter and even more adventure. Big Hugs, Ed & Susan
Great property with great views
We loved staying here, Susan was very accomodating and the place was clean and well stocked with all the essentials. Susan even included a complimentary jar of mulberry jam which was so delicious we bought 2 jars on our way out. Great location, short drive to Joshua tree. We enjoyed the outdoor firepit, horseshoes, and even spotted some coyotes, rabbits, and roadrunners! Would highly recommend this place! Thanks again for a great weekend!
