ARCHITECTURAL DESERT HIDEAWAY. MODERN & CLOSE TO NTL PARK

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This property is in a fantastic area close to the west entrance of the National Park. Seriously... the drive is 12 minutes from the door to the West Entrance of the park, a lot of places claim this but really aren't that close. The house originated as a 50's homestead cabin and has been remodeled by the Palm Springs Architectural firm O2 Architecture. It is a very special space with great architectural details.

The house is spacious with a great flow, yet very cozy. There is a lot of glass with incredible views in every direction. The house is on 5 acres loaded with natural flora and fauna. You don't have to leave the property to feel like you've gotten away from everything. Feel the desert, drink in the night sky, cook a killer meal and enjoy you're stay!

Desert Goodness.

  • 4 of 5
This house was amazing. I'll get the negatives out of the way first. I had to dock it one star because the record player did not work properly. We're musicians and audiophiles and a big selling point on this place was the amazing LP collection and record player. Obviously we were pretty bummed when we couldn't get it to work. Luckily I carry around audio supplies like a weirdo and was able to hook up an 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter with 1/8 inch cable to make the Ipod Work. It would've been nice if an Ipod hookup was already there for people that just wanna listen to music on their devices.

Also in the notes it tells you vaguely to maybe think about not using the shower in the master bedroom. It says it can get a bit "splashy." It should say "DO NOT EVER USE THE SHOWER ONLY TAKE BATHS" because we tried to use the shower and it immediately started flooding the place! If we didn't notice it right away the entire house probably would have filled with water! However the tub was amazing and the jacuzzi function worked just right.

Ok on to the positives. This place has the most beautiful 360 degree desert and mountain views. There is awesome plant life all around you and you can walk around collecting beautiful stones that are littered all over the place.

If you like Dwell magazine then you'll be happy with the aesthetics of this place. Very clean, kitschy, and minimal in a good way. Antique typewriters and vintage trinkets were a nice touch.

The owner was kind enough to let us bring our Boston Terrier and she had a blast. Be careful of letting your pets wander as there are coyotes around. Also watch out for rattlesnakes!

Outdoor area was great albeit pretty minimal with furniture. The fire pit was great as was the outdoor grill and big coffee table.

A/C in every room which was great, although we couldn't figure out the ceiling fan in the master.

Good kitchen with lots of stuff for cooking.

Fireplace in the main room is super chill so make sure you buy plenty of firewood.

Very quick drive to the national park and all the good stuff. The dirt road is pretty long and bumpy to get up to the house so an SUV is pretty optimal.

Wifi worked well although it took some trial and error to figure out which wall switch operated it.

Again I would've given this 5 stars but ya gotta fix that record player for us audio nerds! Also a sunbathing chair or 2 outside would help.

Highly recommended. Would definitely stay here again.

EXCELLENT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The description and photos of the house actually underestimate how epically gorgeous this house is. Modern, clean and classic, Johns place is a must see if wanting to get away in Joshua Tree. You are a short drive from the national park as well. Highly recommend this home. Thanks again John!

A wonderful spot in the desert!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a lovely time here. The chance to spend a few days living 1950s California style was wonderful - the house was relaxing with wonderful views of the desert and amazing but simple decor. The kitchen was perfect - had everything we needed to cook a few meals. We also made fires in the fire pit each night and watched the stars come out. Jackrabbits and quail were spotted in the neighborhood. We really loved the chance to be here for a few days - a much better choice than a hotel. It was very close to the national park and we also had a great day of scrambling and hiking there. It might not be perfect for families with little kids, but our 3 preteens loved it! What a gorgeous retreat which allowed this East Coast family fall in love with the desert!

Great outdoor space

  • 4 of 5
The location of this house was great - such a lovely spot. Our three young children really enjoyed the outdoor space and the fire pit at night. The house itself was comfortable and the layout was nice. A few details were lacking (e.g., no dish soap and sponge in the kitchen, incomplete towel sets in the bathroom, laundry still drying upon arrival) but overall, our stay was pleasant and we had a good time. Thanks!

It's a great house for a casual trip to Joshua Tree. Super clean, great design, filled with pretty much everything you need. And unlike any other vacation rental I've ever stayed at, this house comes with a stellar collection of hundreds of classic albums on vinyl. There should be a new search filter/category on VRBO for "vintage record collection."
