The outdoor kitchen situated on the porch has a small dining table, a chiminea, and comfortable seating for relaxing with a book or enjoying the view. It comes equipped with a small refrigerator, four burner cooktop, dishes, utensils, and an outdoor grill. There is also filtered drinking water, cooking oil, spices, coffee, and a selection of teas.
The coffee system is a porcelain Melita cone/ filter and insulated carafe, which is ready for coffee lovers upon arrival. The sink is an old enamel/cast iron one from the 50's, with built-in drain boards and cupboard space below. There's a large stainless steel container with a faucet that provides water to the sink. Guests can also bring hot water for dish washing from the spigot located in the outdoor shower a few steps away, in the enameled kettle provided for that purpose. (Simple, but it works!)
The bathroom facilities are about 30 feet from the suite rental in a small adobe structure, which houses a sink and a county-approved propane incinerating toilet. An incinerating toilet is meant mostly for solid waste, but can also handle some liquid. Peeing in the great outdoors is not a requirement, but is greatly appreciated. The stone outdoor shower offers plenty of privacy, yet glampers can still enjoy the view of the mountains from over the top of its cedar gate. (There's plenty of hot water, of course!)

There is also an outdoor kitchen, equipped with a stovetop, small refrigerator, all the dishes and utensils you might need, and some basics such as spices, cooking oil, coffee and various teas. There is also a charcoal Weber barbecue, and while the host doesn't provide charcoal and lighter fluid, previous guests often leave behind what they don't use. Ask; chances are there's a supply.
The bathroom facility is a separate adobe building, 30 feet from the main house, and has a sink and an incinerating toilet. The shower is a lovely and private stone outdoor shower, with an arched entryway, many fossils in the walls, and a cedar gate. It is located at the main house.
