Nomad's Pad is a collection of OFF-GRID, nomadic boutique tents in the enigmatic Northern Arizona landscape with panoramic views and radiant starry night skies. Designed for those seeking a unique and immersive outdoor experience with a modern day Wild West vibe. If you’d like to be in the middle of nowhere with a view of a billion stars at night, willing to be rugged and unplugged -- then this is it, this is the place. Your adventure awaits!

The space
-The Property-
Located just 30 minutes outside of the Grand Canyon South Rim entrance.
You will be camping on our private property in a ranch community.
There are multiple tent sites on our 40 acre property, each at least 500 feet apart to ensure privacy. Each tent site is private (includes personal fire pit, hammock, outdoor furniture+hangout area, and camp stove), the outdoor shower+toilet are shared.

Our property is 100% OFF-GRID, this means water is hauled and everything is powered by solar energy, batteries, and/or propane.

Although neighbors are far and spread out, we expect all of our guests to respect and honor the privacy of our neighbors at all times. Disrespect and disregard of the natural environment, property, wildlife, and our community will not be tolerated.

-The Tent-
Cover material is made of durable natural fiber suited for 4-season use. It is weather and water resistant with up to 5000mm waterproof PU coating and windproof grade up to 6 degree wind i.e. 48km/h (30miles/hour). Tent floor is made of PVC with an integrated, heavy-duty zipper groundsheet allowing you the option to roll the side walls up on a hot summer's day and to let the wind pass underneath. Both door and windows are equipped with the screen meshes (mosquito screens) to keep bugs out.

***Please do not move or remove anything (especially the heaters!) from inside or outside the tent without the owner's acknowledgement and approval.***

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire tent site they reserve, shared amenities such as the outdoor shower, outdoor sink, portable toilet, and our land. Guests are not allowed to be at other guests' tent site(s) without permission from the guests staying at that site.

Other things to note
***PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING BEFORE BOOKING.***
If you have any questions or something is not clear, please feel free to message us before you book. We are always happy to help.

*Not recommended for high maintenance type personalities. This is in fact and is meant to be an outdoor experience.

*We have a strict "leave no trace" policy and kindly ask that you leave with your memories and trash only. No exceptions, strictly enforced, and subject to fines.

*Valle is a small, unincorporated town within the city of Williams. Please be aware that this is a rural and highly underdeveloped area, do not expect typical modern day conveniences such as nearby grocery stores, restaurants, fully paved roads, street lights, etc. For example, there is currently only one restaurant in town and all roads in the town of Valle are dirt roads, except for the 64 and 180 highways.

*WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND ARRIVING BEFORE SUNSET. It gets very dark out here, as in almost pitch black kind of dark at night -- which will probably make it more challenging than it has to be trying to find our place.


***AMENITY LIMITATIONS***
Please make sure to read details below, prior to booking.

-HEATING-

EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 23, 2020:
Mr. Buddy propane heater will be available upon request ONLY, subject to availability at an additional charge of $15.
You must bring your own 1lb propane tanks to use with the propane heater. These propane tanks can be purchased at any outdoor sporting goods store, the camping section of Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Lowe's, etc. At least 2 (1 lb tanks) are recommended for a 1 night stay.
***This charge and requirement DOES NOT apply to guests who originally made a reservation PRIOR to October 23, 2020, regardless if their date of stay is on or after October 23, 2020.**

1) Zero degree Fahrenheit sleeping bags are provided (1 per guest).

2) Extra blankets.

3) Each tent site comes with either a wood burning or propane fire pit included, at no additional charge. Please bring your own firewood or propane (1lb, 5lb, 20lb tanks, etc. are ok). We do not provide nor sell these items.

***PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE AVAILABILITY AND USE OF THIS AMENITY IS NOT ALWAYS GUARANTEED. THE DESCRIBED AMENITY IS SUBJECT TO AND IS OVERRIDDEN BY ANY EXISTING, PREEXISTING, AND/OR SUDDENLY IMPOSED LOCAL, COUNTY, AND/OR STATE ENFORCED FIRE RESTRICTIONS. GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO CONDUCT THEIR OWN DUE DILIGENCE ON THIS MATTER PRIOR TO AND THROUGHOUT THE DURATION OF THEIR RESERVATION AND RELEASE THE HOST(S) OF ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATING TO THIS MATTER. HOSTS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE NOR TO BE HELD AT FAULT AT ANY TIME FOR ANY CHANGES ON ANY EXISTING, PRE-EXISTING, AND/OR SUDDENLY IMPOSED FIRE RESTRICTIONS BY ANY RECOGNIZED JURISDICTION UNDER ANY APPLICABLE LAWS, WHICH RESULT IN THE ABSENCE AND/OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THIS AMENITY. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED BY THE HOST RELATING SPECIFICALLY TO FIRE RESTRICTION MATTERS AS DESCRIBED. NO EXCEPTIONS. BY MAKING A RESERVATION, GUESTS ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE READ, ACCEPT, AND AGREE TO THESE CONDITIONS.***


-OUTDOOR SHOWER + SINK + PORTABLE TOILET-
***Please be aware that the outdoor shower is NOT available during the WINTER season. The start of winter season varies, subject to weather conditions and dependent on temperatures, especially at night. It is highly common for temperatures in Valle, Arizona to drastically fluctuate from day to night. For example, temperatures can be 70 - mid 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and can drop to freezing temperatures (32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius) at night. When this is the case, we turn off the outdoor shower/sink system, meaning we drain water from all the pipes entirely in order to prevent pipe bursts or freezing and other possible related issues. Once the shower/sink system is turned off, it remains turned off until the next late spring/summer season. Our system is designed for 100% off-grid living; therefore, can be highly sensitive and complex in nature.***

1) The outdoor shower, outdoor sink, and portable toilet are shared with other guests. The maximum number of guests you can expect to share these amenities with is 9, when we are fully booked.

2) The water is hauled from a local provider. Yes, it is potable.
Both the shower and sink have unlimited hot water. However, please be mindful of your consumption and always keep the limitations of this amenity in mind. We are off-grid.

3) The portable toilet is professionally serviced once a week by a third party, local company provider.

***DIRTY DISHES RULE*** - If you use it, please wash it. Dishwashing soap and sponges are provided at the outdoor sink area. Failure to observe this rule may result in an additional charge of up to $50, depending on the severity and circumstances.

Location

Williams, Arizona, United States

Our property is located in a ranch community so cattle roam free here. Please be mindful and respectful of cattle crossing and all other animals in the natural environment -- DO NOT feed the animals, DO NOT litter/leave trash/leave behind any toxic traces that may adversely alter the natural environment. Much like the rest of town, our neighborhood is remote and rural. If you're looking for a place to get away, unplug for a bit, stargaze, chase sunsets and sunrises, or simply seek solitude -- then this is it, this is the place!
