The KITCHEN is bright and filled with kitsch and color. I have most appliances you could need, Coffee maker, Blender, Juicer, Mixer, and TONS of pretty pyrex for the chef or baker in the group. I have a full bar set up, with all vintage barware. Kitchen utensils are primarily glass and cast iron, no plastics and aluminum here. I'm vegetarian and health conscious. so you will find a full spice rack, coconut oil, flax seed oil, apple cider vinegar etc as staples you are welcome to use.Complementary selection of coffees & teas.
The DINING room is the center of the house, watch the wildlife out the picture window while sipping your coffee etc. You will find the record player, vintage board games, and selection of indie films/DVDS here.

OUTSIDE & AMENITIES
The POOL is awesome, COVERED and gives off THE best light for photos. Watch the dreamy glow of sunrise and sunsets here. Enjoy a swim year round without baking in the summer sun. Filled with period appropriate vintage patio furniture. Private, so if you forget swimsuits, no one will know. The Jacuzzi is available during the winter season. Did we mention it has a MERMAID?
Situated on 5 acres, we have just so much outside to enjoy in addition to the landscape. Raised area off the pool with a large dad BBQ and plenty of vintage patio seating for outdoor dining. LOUNGE CHAIRS positioned for watching the sunsets. FIREPIT area for evening fires underneath the stars (when permitted by fire dept). Regulation size HORSESHOE court, our own HUMAN SUNDIAL that allows your body position to tell the time. Vintage GLIDER and chairs under the shade of the pine trees for morning coffee breaks and cocktails.
Explore the property's native plants (in sensible shoes) and watch for the jackrabbits, quail, dove, roadrunner, and owls that frequent the house. At night listen for the coyotes' and keep an eye out for Pete our bat.
SECURITY Scorpio Rising is equipped with systems to help keep guests comfortable and secure. Outdoor lighting at entry is on from dusk til dawn and outdoor security cameras monitor the entry areas.
PARKING, we covered parking for one car (or many moto's), plenty of additional parking, and a large parking lot / turnaround for RV's or trailers.
INTERNET we have internet and wifi throughout the house, however we are on a rural system and it is sometimes known for dropping out here and there.
I divide my time between the Mojave Desert and L.A. I would be glad to share with you anything I love or frequent here and throughout Southern California. I am available via email, phone but text works best.
