Overview

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

A brand new modern architectural desert retreat near Joshua Tree, California.

Welcome to Jackrabbit Wash! Thanks for coming by.

If you are looking for a respite from the rigors of modern life, you owe it to yourself to kick up your feet at Jackrabbit Wash. Unwind in the jacuzzi, take a dip in the pool, curl up by the fireplace, sleep in late, bask in the stillness and silence. Relax.

The setting is sublimely beautiful: vast expanses of sun-soaked open desert; constellation-filled, pitch-black night skies; and unusual flora and fauna abound. Seasonally you may see jackrabbit, bobcat, desert tortoise, coyote, antelope squirrel, lizards, quail, roadrunner, and many other species of birds.

Jackrabbit Wash has 1600 square feet of interior space and it sits on 2.5 private acres with a view of Joshua Tree National Park. The park itself is a ten minute drive from the house. The house has one bedroom, two full baths, a den/office, and a large 'great' room (kitchen/dining/living room). The kitchen is well-equipped with new stainless steel appliances and there is a full compliment of cookware and place settings. There is a patio and a deck directly off of the great room and there is a more private patio directly off of the bedroom.

The main attraction around here is Joshua Tree National Park and it is well worth a visit to experience the otherworldly splendor of the park. Other local attractions include Pappy and Harriet's (a famed roadhouse with great food and music), Pioneertown, the Integratron, High Desert Test Sites, and the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Art Museum.

We hope that your visit to the desert is a wonderful and unforgettable experience and we hope that you consider Jackrabbit Wash to be your home away from home. For more information please contact us or visit our website at jackrabbitwash.com. Happy travels and thanks for coming by! :)

About Aaron D'Innocenzo

I am a residential designer and builder currently sitting for the Architectural Registration Exam here in California, after which I will be a licensed architect. I also own and manage Jackrabbit Wash.

Aaron D'Innocenzo purchased this house in 2003

Why Aaron D'Innocenzo chose Joshua Tree

I designed and built this passive solar house by myself over a span of nearly eight years. There were no contractors, subs, or helpers. This was my first project after graduating with a Master in Architecture degree in 2002. Construction began in 2004 and was completed in 2012.

What makes this house unique

The desert landscape is sublime. Whether viewing the expansive landscape from the patio during the day or viewing the incredible starry skies while swimming in the pool at night, this house and its environs provide the tranquility and stillness required as an antidote to the often hectic rhythms of modern life.

A Gem in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5
Aaron's amazing home took our breath away. Everything he designed and built into this property is perfect in form and function. We very much appreciated his authenticity and creative development of the spaces at Jackrabbit Wash. This house is respectful to the environment. It is a glorious gem in itself, yet it unobtrusively highlights everything from the lay of the desert land to the mountains of Joshua Tree National Park, from the sunrises and sunsets to the moon and stars at night. It was hard to decide what we liked most.....curling up in front of the fireplace or lounging on the chaises outside under the stars.
Simply walking in the door inspires one to take a deep breath and relax. Warm, exciting to the eye, full of interest, yet free of clutter that detracts from good design. We felt at home immediately. The well-appointed kitchen was beckoning us, so we chose to stay in and cook rather than eat out. Jackrabbit Wash was also a perfect base camp for us to explore the 4WD trails in JT National Park. Aaron was a fabulous host, always available if needed, yet respectful of our privacy leaving us to enjoy our time at Jackrabbit Wash. We hope to come back again sometime soon, especially when the weather is warm enough for an evening swim in the pool. Jackrabbit Wash will always be our first choice when booking some R&R in Joshua Tree.

This house was great. Everything was clean and modern. It came with everything. All you needed to bring was some clothes, hiking shoes and a swimsuit. Also, if you're like me, you'd bring some groceries and do all your cooking in the house. The first night, my GF and I baked some salmon and steamed some veggies and had a romantic candlelit dinner on the dinning table. Then we went outside, turned off all the lights and did some stargazing. You can actually see all the stars and the milky way in the sky . It was incredible.

The next day, we went hiking at Joshua Tree, which was about a 10 min drive to the entrance, then another 25 minute drive deep into the national park. Such a beautiful sight. After hiking, we went back and grilled some burgers on the outside grill, while the GF hung out on the "floaties" in the pool.

Early next morning, we went hiking on this hill next to the house, where you can see the entire neighborhood.

We were sad to go that Sunday morning, but we definitely enjoyed our stay and Aaron was a wonderful guest.

Definitely will be going back next spring/summer.

Wow !! Everything We Hoped it Would Be !!

  • 5 of 5
Jackrabbit Wash was a perfect choice for our stay in the High Desert.
Aaron and his assistant Char who checked us in were the Perfect Hosts.. friendly,informative but not intrusive, all questions were answered promptly and they were a pleasure to deal with.
The Home has everything you could wish for and more besides, it exceeded our expectations beyond anything we could have hoped for.
We would plan my next Vacation to California around staying here again as it is too good a place to miss out of an itinerary...to us it is an AMAZING place to have the opportunity to experience, and if you are in this area you should not miss the chance to stay here.

Jack Rabbit Wash

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time during our recent visit to Joshua Tree Nat Park. And a big part of that was our stay at Jackrabbit Wash. The house is gorgeous and set in very peaceful desert surroundings. It was a real joy coming back to the house after a day out hiking. We watched the most amazing sunsets from the deck, with a glass of wine in hand. When it became too chilly to stay out any longer, watching the stars, we came in and lit the fireplace and listened to music.
Aaron was the most accommodating and friendly host. He met us when we arrived and showed us around the house. He has a very warm and welcoming personality. When we had a problem after the first night, he was incredibly responsive and got it sorted quickly.

We can not recommend this property highly enough! If you are looking for a totally relaxing and romantic get away, this is it.

One thing I would note is to follow Aaron's directions to the property to the letter. The roads nearby can be a bit rough. The night we arrived, we took a wrong turn and got a bit stuck, but thankfully managed to find the right roads in the end.

Desert tranquility

  • 5 of 5
The best part of Jackrabbit Wash is the incredible panoramic view from the deck. We enjoyed being able to see the sun rise and set from the same spot and I took early morning walks from the house to explore the surrounding area. There are two towns conveniently located and we HIGHLY recommend Country Kitchen in Joshua Tree for its quirkiness and great food, we wish we had gone there for breakfast a second time. Really enjoyed the souvenir shop on the way to the park in town as well. The park is amazing and the Oasis hike from Cottonwood was awesome-well worth the long car wait to get in both days and the $15 entrance fee (good for several days). The kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed using the BBQ for our evening dinners. Relaxing by the fireplace was lovely and the house was just as pictured-gorgeous. The owner, Aaron is obviously very meticulous does everything to keep the house in perfect shape. He was extremely receptive and helpful. My only small complaint is that I found the mattress not so comfortable and ended up sleeping on the couch one night. Otherwise, I would love to go back again soon.
