Javelina Hideout is a multi-dwelling retreat located on 10 breathtaking acres, built by two people who have a long history with the area and are passionate about outdoor activities. Newly constructed in the Fall of 2017, the Hideout is an eco-friendly, off-grid desert dream home that blends in beautifully with the stunning desert scenery. It is thoughtfully and sustainably designed to maximize comfort and enjoyment while minimizing the environmental impact. We pride ourselves on our off-grid, conservational minded living which includes passive solar design elements, solar power, and rain water harvesting.

The main house features a full kitchen and open concept dining and living area. The kitchen is equipped with an oven, gas range, and a full-sized refrigerator, but there is no dishwasher. Pots, pans and dishware are provided for your convenience. There is no coffeemaker due to the limitations of our solar electric, but the stove will boil a pot of water very quickly and we provide a french press for your morning coffee. Propane wall heaters are offered in the main house and the bunkhouse. An air conditioner is coming to the main home in the Spring of 2018.


The master bedroom has a large east facing window for watching the sunrise from bed, and a high south facing window for views. The room has a brand-new king sized memory foam mattress, ceiling fan, and a beautiful wood wall to frame your views. There is a comfortable rollaway TwinXL bed that can be used in the living room.


The bunkhouse is available for use with any booking, however extra cleaning fees apply. For parties above 3, the cleaning fee is a mandatory charge since the main house will only accommodate 3 people. It is ideal for guests wanting solitude away from the main house. It has 2 TwinXL bunks equipped with their own reading lamp and outlets for phone charging. Each bunk has screened, sliding windows at the head and foot of the bed for a nice cross breeze and views of the stars. It is not air conditioned, but does have a wall mount oscillating fan and a propane wall heater. It is passively designed for comfortable sleeping throughout most of the year. There will be an outdoor sink and a camp stove installed under the large private shaded bunkhouse porch in the Spring of 2018.


When the weather is too nice to be indoors, you can also cook outside on the charcoal park grill. Please bring your own charcoal.


Enjoy an evening campfire around the firepit out front (please bring your own firewood), or during a burn ban use the gas firepit located in the seating area out back.


Special request of our guests:

We do ask that our guests not use more than 10 gallons of our rainwater per day / per person. Please help us conserve our most valuable and precious resource in the desert - our water!


Please do not bring or use any electrical appliances that heat up - such as a blow dryer, curling iron, coffee maker, flood lights etc... These appliances will drain the solar battery bank and can possibly damage the system. Please conserve energy the same way you conserve water.
