Overview

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed/3 Bath - Sleeps 8, 5 Acres + miles of BLM land

Quail Crossing is our fabulous vacation home in Joshua Tree. Tucked away in the Bartlett Mountains and worlds away from the busy life and bright lights of the city - it is truly a place where peace can be found. This open and spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath home sits on 5 undisturbed acres, which border endless miles of pristine protected BLM (Bureau of Land Mgmt) land. You can hikes for miles just heading out our front door!

This house perfect for large groups, families with children, or couples wanting seclusion. Newly built, the home offers a modern kitchen, upscale furnishings, indoor Jacuzzi tub, flat screen TV with satellite, DVD player with extensive film library, iPod stereo dock, fabulous gas Weber grill, full outdoor play set for children, 2 queen size beds, and two sets of bunk beds. This home will sleep up to 8 max.

Quail Crossing is the last house on a dead end road connecting to hundreds of preserved acres serving as your backyard playground. Magnificent views of Joshua Tree National Park can be seen from the large living room slider and is just an 8 mile drive from the house. Wake up to an amazing sunrise with quail and cottontails playing outside your bedroom window, then take your pick from the multitude of outdoor seating and hammocks and enjoy the silence as you watch for the hundreds of other animals- jackrabbits, lizards, antelope squirrels, coyotes, desert tortoises, hawks, bobcat and more- that thrive in this protected area. A wonderful sunset while enjoying the warmth of the outdoor fire-place and then the bats come out to play, followed by a sweeping night sky full of shooting stars.

Complimentary whole bean coffee and various condiments are always available. Sorry, absolutely no pets are allowed (even the most well behaved) as the owners have severe allergies.

You’ll find excellent cell phone reception. The house, purposely designed to take advantage of its setting, is cooled by evaporative cooler and air conditioning units in the summer months. And keep in mind, we are always 15 degrees cooler than Palm Springs and 10 degrees cooler than Joshua Tree Park, making this destination perfect year round.

About Alissa and Fernley Phillips

We are a family of 5 and Los Angeles locals in the film business. This is our fabulous vacation home! We take tremendous pride in it and use it often. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Alissa and Fernley Phillips purchased this house in 2008

Why Alissa and Fernley Phillips chose Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree is only 2 hours from Los Angeles and one of the more special places in America. Finding a property like ours was a dream come true!

What makes this house unique

The views and land will take your breath away. The 'sound' of pure silence will relax you completely, especially those of us who are city-dwellers. We are so secluded that at night there is no light interference and you will see millions of stars, including the entire Milky Way!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.! What a lovely & wonderful home. We played on the swings - swinging higher than ever. We climbed the rocks and one of us even sat on a cactus! We played cards, we cooked and swam. We had an amazing weekend!

Perfect desert retreat

  • 5 of 5
Quail Crossing is a beautiful and well-appointed home. It had the perfect layout for our family, and we spent a very comfortable four nights there. The house is in a secluded and quiet spot, but close to the town and to the National Park. We hope to get back there as soon as we can!

Comfortable home that invites you outdoors

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful home with great layout for a group -- the open floor plan let us stay social while cooking, grilling, and lounging, but also enticed us outside to the fantastic fire pit and stargazing over the ridge. The three full bathrooms made sure we were all comfortable and able to avoid silly delays like waiting on a shower to get the day started. Short ride to town and the park meant easy access to the larger JT area. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Perfect, secluded spot for family...yet close town!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many VRBO's from Hawaii to Chicago...and this is absolutely a special property. We have 4 children - ages 2 - 12 and there was room for all. The bunk room was perfect for the boys while our girl had her own bath and bed. We spent a week here over spring break, enjoyed the open layout of the house, climbing on the rocks behind the house, playground and wild life. My husband rode to and from the park and it was easy to meet up with him. Thank you for your quick response and great home!

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful stay at this impeccable home. The listing was accurate, the setting was beautiful, the home was, bright, open, modern and spotless. The outdoor setting was gorgeous. Truly, we were delighted with our stay and would highly recommend Quail Crossing.

Beautiful Well-Equipped House

  • 5 of 5
The house was very comfortable and spacious for 5 adults (though one had to sleep in a bunkbed). The AC is evaporation-based so it doesn't get very cool, but kept the house quite comfortable. Ceiling fans in bedrooms helped too.

The location is great if you want to spend a lot of time in Joshua Tree National Park. The west entrance is about a 20-minute drive away, which is very convenient if you want to come back to escape the midday heat (we typically did one short hike in the early morning, another short one for sunset, siesta'ed all afternoon at the house). You will need a car.

The location wasn't quite as secluded as I expected. We could see the stars and Milky Way, but it wasn't completely dark since there are houses (with outdoor lights and barking dogs) a few hundred meters away. (However, we did plenty of star-gazing in the park.)

I had low expectations for the Cowboy Spa but it was actually a really nice place to sit and hangout in the midday heat. And due to the position of the house, it is very private. Our only problem was that were only able to find three extra towels for taking outside.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you'll need for most meals, including coffee, olive oil, salt and pepper (but no spices that we could find). There is also an ice cream maker that we never got around to using but I think it would have been amazing.

I would happily stay there again and will definitely recommend it to friends.

Greetings!

Quail Crossing was the perfect house to stay at! There were five of us and the home exceeded all of our expectations. The location was perfect with great views but yet close enough to all the shopping we needed. If I go back to Joshua Tree I would love to stay here again! I rate it a 10 plus!!

Quail Crossing is wonderfully secluded on a dead-end road tucked high into the Bartlett Mountains looking down on the village of Joshua Tree and the Joshua Tree National Park. On 3 sides we are bordered by pristine, undeveloped government land where you are welcome to hike, off-road ATV and even hunt during hunting seasons.
