About Christa

After quitting our own business (Mark) and corporate job (me) and then selling our home with everything in it, we travelled the US in our motorhome for what came to be 6 wonderful years! We drove our motorhome to Joshua Tree in 2004 to visit friends and never left. It is a beautiful place!

Christa purchased this house in 2005

Why Christa chose Joshua Tree

Our Sunset Terrace rental was an original 'homestead' cabin that Mark added onto and made into a 3 bedroom/2 bath home. We fell in love with this property right away because of it's remote feel but close proximity to town and to the park.

What makes this house unique

We love the views from this home: full sunrises to the east, full sunsets to the west and a huge panoramic view of Joshua Tree National Park. There are also hundreds of Joshua Trees on the 5 acres that it sits on which is magical in and of itself. Having the Bartlett Mountains just behind the house is one of my favorite things as you can hike right to them and follow the trail that loops around the mountain; it is a wonderful place to view the National Park from afar with no people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us experience your house. You have excellent taste in everything from fence design to dishes. We felt right at home. It was so great to sit on the patio in the morning and evenings. We loved cooking in the kitchen with every gadget we could need. This house really has everything to make a perfect weekend where all you need is a trip to the grocery store and some good sneakers. We loved hiking in the park and coming home to our Joshua Tree house away from home. We loved it!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Terrace is the perfect getaway, and a great location for visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The house had everything we needed to feel at home immediately. It was very clean and stocked with the basics that you don't like to buy on vacation, like condiments and cleaning products. It is also bigger than it appears in pictures. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for hiking adventures or quiet getaways!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the house- cleanliness is one of our top priorities which is why we have a 4 hour window in between bookings so we have time to make sure everything is just the way we want it. I'm glad you noticed:) We hope to see you again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here quite a bit and can't wait to come back. The house has a perfect location for Joshua Tree park visits (close to the park and also spitting distance from the charming commercial area of the town of JT) and was comfortable for us as a family with two small children (there is a Pack n Play and storage bin full of baby/toddler toys available). Amenities like a quality coffee grinder/French press, foot massager, and non-cheapo towels really make a big difference to the experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you Valerie for you kind words. I'm glad you noticed the small things that make a big difference to me like nice plush towels, the foot massager, etc. Thanks for noticing and we hope to see you again!

Super stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house has everything you might need. We esspecially enjoyed the fireplace and the hot tub. The internet is very fast and you can stream movies on the TV.

While here we enjoyed hiking in the National Park, went to Palm Springs and to the Indian Canyon. We also did trips to LA and San Diego.

All together we had a wonderful time here.

Sunset Terrace

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Terrace is a beautiful home and has absolutely everything that you could need to shut off and relax. We traveled with our 9 month old daughter and it was so easy to enjoy the space with her. While she was sleeping we enjoyed the hot tub, the gorgeous backyard area and the super relaxing living room. There were games, movies, books, Netflix and cable to enjoy. The sectional couch was so comfy. The entire place was even more beautiful than the pictures suggested. Everything was very clean and very organized. We will definitely be back and we would absolutely recommend the home to everyone. The local restaurants and shops were amazing, the views and the quiet were perfect. The park is right near by. The owners made everything so easy and available. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Erin, Thank you for your kind words. I also love the feel of the Sunset Terrace- very cozy and inviting yet with all of the modern amenities. The hot tub is a favorite for guests, especially in the private back yard. Glad you enjoyed it and we hope to have you again!

GREAT!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, beautifully decorated, so peaceful. Quick five minute drive to the park, easy access to town, but still felt completely serene. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Dan! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. One of the best things about the Sunset Terrace house is the closeness to town but with the 5 acres you feel worlds away. Glad you were able to experience this!

Try something different like rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park! In May and October is the Joshua Tree Music Festival- both are amazing fun.

For the art seekers, check out High Desert Test sites, Open Studio Art Tours, Noah Purifoy outdoor museum, JTAG art gallery, 29 Palms art gallery.

For the the open minded, try the Integratron and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, Instant Karma yoga studio, BhaktiFest, ShaktiFest and the Joshua Tree Music Festival!

For the outdoor enthusiast there are lots of hikes in the park, the Andromeda Society for stargazing, and the Keys Ranch guided walking tour.
