Overview

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rancho Loco is perfect for your desert hideaway home away from home. Come rain or shine, Rancho Loco has something beautiful to offer. When it's sunny, drinks by the pool, quiet time on the veranda with a book, watching the sun rise or set and enjoying some good barbecue with friends and family. When it's stormy – get cozy on the couch with a fire crackling away, a home cooked meal with a glass of wine while you watch the clouds roll in over the dramatic landscape, framed by the huge picture windows. Rancho Loco also affords extra privacy with separate living quarters, the cozy & bright main house and the open & airy studio.

Located on its own secluded 20 acres, minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Rancho Loco offers 360º views with over 50 Joshua trees, yuccas and native desert foliage all on the property. Situated between the two houses is a salt water swimming pool with an observation deck, perfect for sunset viewing, outdoor dining, and maybe even a skinny dip under the stars. Rancho Loco is a rustic modern take of a 1920s ranch house updated to today's standards including solar power as its primary source of energy and water drawn from a private on-site well!

Rancho Loco is a great affordable base no matter what your interests are – rock-climbing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, model rocket launching [our fave], novel writing or just relaxing by the pool. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to get away and visit this magical California vacation home location.

About Marcus Wright

We, Karen and Marcus, have lived in Los Angeles since 1990 and take great joy and pride in making things better.

Marcus Wright purchased this house in 2001

Why Marcus Wright chose Joshua Tree

We purchased this property after many years of traveling to Joshua Tree as a get-away. It became our home away from home with the space, privacy and solitude that was hard to come by in Los Angeles. The idea of a two hour car drive putting you in a different world creates an invaluable peace of mind.

What makes this house unique

More than just a base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area, Rancho Loco is a self-contained resort. It provides all the comforts of home in a spectacular setting. Unlike many vacation homes in Joshua Tree, Rancho Loco provides a year round experience due to the salt water pool, which provides the remarkable sensation of cool blue water beneath the hot summer sun and the limitless night skies.

adorable retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for my recent birhtday, and it was such a great place to visit with a fun group of friends/family. It was relaxing and it helped make my first trip to Joshua Tree so memorable. Also, the National park is just a short drive away!

home sweet loco

  • 5 of 5

this is our third stay at rancho loco & it just gets better every time. we always feel like we are coming home to the really awesome desert home we all wish we had. :) the property is beautiful, wonderfully relaxing & has all the modern amenities u could ask for. marcus is a great host: communicates well & has always been responsive & very understanding w/ various requests. the house sleeps 8 adults comfortably, is doggie friendly, and has a fully equipped kitchen for even cooking up a proper feast. the house stays cool in the summer & warm when it's cold outside. pool time, desert strolls & night time star gazing by the fire are among our many favorite pastimes at rancho loco. we could not recommend this property enuff. we can't wait for our next visit! thank you for keeping such a wonderful place, marcus!

Thanksgiving at Rancho Loco.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent the whole way around. Myself and 6 other people spent a 4 day weekend at Rancho Loco for Thanksgiving and were absolutely delighted with the place. Quiet, secluded, and well stocked, R.L. is a perfect getaway for those who are fans of desert locations. Great star watching at night and an array of different places in and around the house for relaxing during the day made this the perfect Thanksgiving holiday spot. We'll definitely be renting again in the future! Thanks of an awesome time.
