Great little home away from home. Had everything we needed, nice viewing of the pond and short walk to fanastic pools, hot tubs and tennis courts. Loved every minute of it with our two children and little dog.

The Mod Pod is a great little desert oasis!!! Located right across from the pond (beware the black swans - one of them charged at us!), it was a great size for the 2 of us - and yay for AC! Also super close to one set of pools - make sure to take advantage of these :) Communication during booking was clear and quick, directions to the property were easy to understand - this was a wonderful experience and we will definitely stay here again! Thank you Mod Pod!

I stayed for 28 days last July, loved it so much, that I came back this summer. I love ModPod #7!  Have you ever walked into a place and it felt instantly like home? ModPod #7 was that for me. It changed my opinion about modular living. Coming from the hustle and bustle of the SF Bay Area, the secluded quiet of Sky Valley and the mineral pools were like chicken soup for the soul. Laura and Marilynn make everything so easy. From check in, to check out, to communication, to giving you your privacy. Loved it. FYI the swans and ducks across the way go crazy for $1 store white bread. Even the turtle would come out for a bite. The people at Sky Valley are so warm and friendly. The only thing I'd change about my stay is I think the mattress needs an update. There's no give, so I had to put pillows under my body. Other than that, ModPod #7 and team are lovely. I love Sky Valley and the desert so much that I decided to make a life change and move into a tiny house. Perhaps we'll see each other around Sky Valley!

This will have been our third stay at the ModPod and we can not wait to come back. Great little spot and one of the better AirBnB experiences we have had.
