DragonflyHill is a safe and sober space that is dsability and LGBTQIAA affirmative, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-imperialist and decolonialist, because anything else is just a bandaid. Core values of our work include attention to detail, fine craftwork and cultivating community. DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat is a personal home & community space located in Riverside County just outside Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City & Palm Springs. Enjoy fresh desert air, starlit nights, and natural mineral water from our own well.

Camp in your own tent, camper or RV under the starlit desert sky in the shadow of the mesquite trees on our beautiful desert farm and wildlife habitat. In addition to the privacy of your campsite, you have access to the shared areas on the farm including the gardens, the orchard, the patios, and the natural mineral water filled pond pool, the outdoor kitchen, BBQ and dining area and the outdoor gym.

Experience desert magic: starry skies, natural mineral water. Safe social distancing, quiet, clean.

DRAGONFLYHILL COMMUNITY: PRINCIPLES & GUIDELINES

FOR OVERNIGHT GUESTS, LODGERS AND RESIDENTS OF DRAGONFLYHILL DESERT FARM & WILDLIFE HABITAT
Respect the Space:

1. SAFETY FIRST. Guests agree to adhere to host directions regarding safety especially during high heat, earthquakes and high winds or rains. We regret that we do not allow campfires during windy conditions. (Wind speeds of 5 mph or higher are not safe for campfires.)

2. We value deeply the diversity, labor, skill and craft of everyone who participates, works and lives at and with DragonflyHill. We therefore insist that people are especially vigilant to avoid speech and actions that are hurtful, marginalizing and offensive. We are ethnically and culturally diverse, anti-racist, anti-sexist, child friendly, DISability and LGBTQIAA affirmative. Several of our community and team members have visible and nonvisible DISabilities and come from a variety of backgrounds and histories. Please refrain from patronizing, insulting and hurtful comments. If you are not comfortable with diversity and nonconformity you may wish to stay somewhere else. We strongly abide by these values and hope you’ll join us.

3 We are part of a larger community that is also economically, ethnically and culturally diverse. We deeply value our relationships with our neighbors. If guests/lodgers have a problem with something or someone in the neighborhood or at DragonflyHIll please contact your DragonflyHill Team and let us do what we can to resolve it. We highly discourage notifying the police except in emergencies to prevent people being targeted unfairly. If a problem arises between guests/lodgers, guests/lodgers must bring the problem to our attention and we will facilitate a resolution. Any issues between guests/lodgers understandably is not the responsibility or liability of the host.

4. All fees for children (including infants), extra people, vehicles and pets, as described in platform listings apply. We cannot provide free lodging for children of any age.

All extensions and subsequent reservations will have to be made via that platform in accordance with DragonflyHill’s agreements with the platform. Guests/lodgers must read the full platform listing carefully and agree to the detailed rules provided on those platforms.

7. Absolutely NO contraband: No porn, drugs or weapons. No guns. No exceptions! This is not a moral judgement, but rather a security consideration and lifestyle choice for the space, and of course, no illegal criminal activity. Our no weapons policy applies to law enforcement, governmental security agents and/or military personnel etc.

CORONAVIRUS RULES & Protocols
For Guests, Lodgers and Residents of DragonflyHill
1. Safety first: All guests/lodgers must follow the host's instructions and be flexible as conditions may change and rules may need to be altered. Our hosting priority is the safety of everyone at DragonflyHill. Amenities are secondary .
2. All team members and people providing cleaning and other services inside the Main House, the Vardo, The Cottage and common areas must be vaccinated.
3. More than ever, it is important for people to display and practice social responsibility. Masks are required in all common outdoor spaces, and must be worn inside the portapotty, and social distancing should be maintained with all people who are not part of one’s family, travel party or pod. (This applies to outdoor spaces.) For an extra fee, and enough advanced notice, we can provide a private portapotty for guests who want their own portapotty (This applies mostly to campers).
4. We will continue the Covid 19 cleaning protocols as well as provide cleaning and disinfecting products for guests to use in common spaces. The portapotty is cleaned professionally, weekly and disinfectant is also provided for guests to use prior and after use.
5. Guests/lodgers who use common areas will need to clean and disinfect areas and equipment before use and must clean up after themselves. Materials are provided by the Dragonfly Team.
6. There will be no access to the Main House during the CoronaVirus pandemic unless quarantine protocols have been determined and agreed upon
7. If you don’t think the pandemic is real or serious and is part of an elaborate hoax to get you to cover the lower half of your face and consider the rights, safety and needs of other people, please choose to stay elsewhere. This is not the space for you.

CAMPFIRE (BBQ AND OPEN STOVE) PROTOCOLS AT DRAGONFLYHILL DESERT FARM AND WILDLIFE HABITAT


California Campfire Permits are required for open fires, such as campfires, barbecues and portable stoves on federally controlled lands and private lands that are the property of another person. In addition to the requisites of the California campfire permits, the following protocols apply at DragonflyHill Desert Farm:
1. Safety first: All guests/lodgers must follow the host's instructions and be flexible as conditions may change and rules may need to be altered. Our hosting priority is the safety of everyone at DragonflyHill.
2. Guests wishing to have a campfire or use a portable stove or BBQ must show a California Campfire Permit and a responsible adult must be present at all times.
Permits are available online at: https://permit.preventwildfiresca.org/
3. No campfires, camp stoves or BBQs may be used when fire advisories are in effect or during winds greater than 5 mph, or when you can see the trees moving in the breeze. Check with your host if you are not sure if conditions are safe.
4. Do not gather wood, including kindling. Use only wood provided by DragonflyHill or another firewood distributor. Not all wood is safe for use and some locally available wood may be toxic when burned.
5. Use only designated fire pits in designated locations for your campfire.
6. Turn the hose on at the spigot with the water off at the nozzle and keep the hose near your campfire.
7. Campfires, stoves and BBQs must be turned off/extinguished fully when guests are away from the fire source or when asleep.

Other things to note: Camping:
1. While we are children friendly we CANNOT provide FREE accommodations for children OF ANY AGE including infants. We welcome your children into our home but all fees & total number of guest limits apply; an adjustment for infants will be applied. In making your reservation, to assure the correct billing when bringing infants, please count them as children. We love & welcome children, but at the prices we are offering we cannot afford to have extra people of any age here, without compensation for our labor & resources.
2. We are available for check in at any time after 4 PM on the day of your reservation. Guest check out time is 12 noon; we need a few hours to clean & prepare your space, so if you need a much earlier check in, make your reservation to include the night before.
3. Prices and cancellation policies are firm. Guests are encouraged to take out travelers’ insurance in the case that their trip is interrupted, needs to be cancelled shortly before the date of arrival or if weather may interfere with your plans. We also recommend that all guests/lodgers have either homeowners or renters insurance in case of a loss during their stay. Prices may vary by day & season. We do not offer discounts beyond what is stated in the price of the listing, on the indicated date, with the exception of online promotions on our other sites. Home sharing is labor intensive & all members of the Dragonfly Team work very hard. We pay fair wages & provide excellent guest service, which we can't do for a lower price. Please respect the thought & labor we bring to this space, and its value to us & our community. We doubt you'll find anything similar for what we are charging.
4. Tobacco smoking is not allowed inside the house & only in designated outside areas.
5. Guests are welcome to use the outdoor kitchen most of the time and may use any of the kitchen supplies. Clean up after yourself. We provide dish soap and disinfectant, scrub pads and cleaning cloths you can use prior to and after use of this shared space.
6. Cleaning & community fees apply not just to the cleaning of the guests’ spaces, but also to the cleaning & maintenance of the common areas & grounds during their stay. If guests notice areas that need attention, they are encouraged to inform the Dragonfly Team.
7. Guests need to fill out a standard registration form for their group, and provide a photo ID for all adult guests upon arrival.
8. Guests wanting to stay more than 28 nights should make an initial reservation of 28 nights or less to allow us to live together before committing to longer cohabitation. The security deposit for stays greater than 28 nights is $300.
9. We can provide beach towels & a beach blanket for use outside of our home. Beach towels are also available at our pool pond.
10. This is a desert farm & wildlife habitat in a rustic environment. Wifi & phone service are usually very good but may be impeded by our location, high winds & weather conditions. We recommend guests use Verizon wireless phone service for best communication in the area.
11, DragonflyHill is a safe & sober space that is DISability & LGBTQIAA affirmative. We are multi-generational, anti-racist, anti-sexist, decolonialist & anti-imperialist. Most of our team members have disabilities and are disability & social justice activists. We are new to this home & are working toward greater disability access for all. Currently we can provide access for many disabilities but are not yet fully wheelchair accessible & we are working towards that. Our portapotty and outdoor showers are wheelchair accessible as are all of the patios and gardens. We do offer step free access to the Main House the natural mineral water filled pool pond, and the dining & living room area. There is space for charging a mobility scooter. We use scent free products for the most part & can provide guests with a list of products. If you are sensitive to certain products, with enough notice we can halt the use of some of those products in anticipation of your arrival. Guests with disabilities are encouraged to discuss their particular needs with us to assure full accommodations, comfort & safety. The bathrooms have hand held shower heads & we can provide a shower chair.
12. We work hard to keep the home well maintained & clean; we're vigilant & do due diligence with professional quarterly visits from Truly Nolen 4 Season Pest Prevention (a green company.) We doubt you'll see any critters inside the house during your stay, but if you do, please advise us & we will promptly address the situation. DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat is in a remote area of the desert with lots of wildlife. To help us keep wildlife OUT of the house and campsites, please keep food out of reach of critters & clean up after every meal.
13. We have 1 cat and 1 service dog. Other guests may have pets or assistance animals. Neighbors have chickens, farm animals and pets. There are a few feral cats in the vicinity as well as a variety of wildlife.
14. We are slowly reopening the use of the shared spaces inside the Main House to vaccinated guests, including campers, who provide their vaccination records.
15. Laundry facilities are not available to guests. We provide a laundry service with 24 hour turn around at a price equal to the cost of a local laundromat.
16. If you have any other concerns let us know & we'll do our best to remedy the situation promptly. Your comfort is important to us & we really do love this work.
