5 STAR HOTEL STYLE LUXURY, ALL REMODELED, MOUNTAIN VIEWS, DOG FRIENDLY

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

5 BR/3.5 Bath Home Sleeps 12 in 3 Suites with Bonus Room

Lots of Space and Fabulous Views

Our big, comfortable, and fun retreat by Joshua Tree Park is perfect for large groups and families who need plenty of space to spread out. The original mid-century modern home is perfectly situated on an acre plus of beautiful indigenous plantings. Because of the unique geographic setting and architecture of the house, there are unobstructed mountain views from every room. We bought it last year and have completely remodeled and upgraded everything about this magical location, inside and out.

Landscaping and Outside Features

You will find around 30 mature Joshua Trees as well as two recently planted orchards. Looking through this desert-lush landscape beyond to the mountains gives you an ever changing palette for your celebrations and festivities, as well as a serene and calming background for quiet times and reflection. The enclosed veranda (solid roof, screened wall panels and doors) shares our central Flintstone type fireplace and chimney so you can have a nice outside-feeling fire or barbecue with all the comforts of a fully furnished indoor room. We also provide charcoal grills and a propane grill in the fenced backyard area, perfect for pooches to run around in and chase cottontails, squirrels, and quail.

Indoor Features

Living areas around this spacious veranda include a brand new cook's kitchen with two full ovens and a microwave, high-end dishwasher, plus a walk in pantry. You will also find plenty of dishes and cookware for easy entertaining. The main house has two bedroom/bath suites and a bonus media room with large flat screen TV. This bonus room provides another sleeping area for two with its own half bath. The large living/dining area, which has French doors opening into the veranda, has a central humongous fireplace. A queen sized sofabed comfortably sleeps two children when pulled out or one adult (with back pillows off it makes a twin sized sleeping area).

Separate Guest House

Attached to the main house by another roofed and screened in bonus porch there is also a guest house with full bath, kitchenette, living/dining area, and separate bedroom. Larger groups have the option of renting the guest house along with the main house. The guest house living room has a day bed that sleeps two, and there is a queen sized sleep number bed in the guest house bedroom. The main house will comfortably sleep six adults and two children, and the guest house will sleep four. Each section of the home has its own access and private areas, inside and out.

Accessibility

Our remodel included new plumbing, electrical, paint, fresh tile, new appliances, new mattresses, TV's in every room, new HVAC system throughout, the works. In the interest of comfort, safety, and accommodating everyone, there are grab bars in every bathroom and the master suite has a roll in shower, with ramp in and ramp out of the living space. The entire house is one one level and is ADA compliant whenever possible. For more convenience, our laundry room has brand new front loading, energy efficient machines, tile countertop, and utility sink.

Main House Amenities

With the goal of outfitting our home with all the comforts of a five star hotel, the master suite has its own mini frig, microwave, and coffee/tea seating area. The brand new king sized pillowtop bed is oriented so that you are facing the mountains. Down a small hallway is the media room, with a large new flat screen TV and comfortable seating. In this media room there is a brand new LazyBoy queen sized sofabed with upgrade to a mattress that combines inner springs, compressed air, and memory foam to make a very comfortable sleeping space. The half bath adjacent to this room makes it a workable option for a couple to use as a bonus bedroom.

In the main house the second bedroom suite has its own shower bath and hallway to the outside veranda and living area. From the brand new, top of the line queen sized tempurpedic bed you can see the mountains and watch the fireplace too. In keeping with the time period of the architecture, the whole house is decorated in a retro/eclectic style, with many artistic touches and conversation pieces to explore.

Climate Control

A continuous run of extra large windows along the front of the house bring nature right in to you with total climate control. In the remodel we tried to be as 'green' as possible, so each space has its own cool/heat unit that can be individually regulated, somewhat like a hotel. Stay cool while you watch the hummingbirds in the summer sage, stay warm while the mountains are snowy! All of the systems are brand new and remote-controlled.

More Guest House Details

The guest house, sleeping from two to four people, can be rented along with the main house. It has its own driveway, front door entrance, and a separate screened in and roofed porch that leads to an outside area with grill. The kitchenette has an apartment size refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, bar sink, hot plate, and large toaster oven available for cooking. All necessary dishes and flatware to make simple meals are provided. There is a dining area and TV in the guest house living room, and another TV in the adjacent bedroom. A full tub bathroom with shower looks out into the garden and trees beyond.

Come and Enjoy it All

With its central location to all of the best of the Joshua Tree, Morongo Basin and Palm Springs area, The House of Three Wishes is the perfect home base, both for exploring and relaxing. We are adjacent to wild public areas where our dogs run free and so do we. Come discover and enjoy this gem of the high desert!

About Martha Newman

We are an architect and artist who love nature and good times. Once we updated our place we realized we should share, this spot is special. We followed good friends to this area on a whim, then completely fell in love with the high desert.

Martha Newman purchased this house in 2011

Why Martha Newman chose Joshua Tree

After a few visits we realized how great a getaway spot this is from the beach cities where we live. That may sound odd but the high desert vibe is different and fun. We love the clean air, clear skies, and wonderful people, venues, art shops, the whole package is other worldly and unique. It is nice to have all that space around us, where we can let the dogs off leash and howl at the harvest moon!

What makes this house unique

We had been trying for another property that was a short sale and the banks were not cooperating. Then we saw this one, with the ad saying it had 8 bathrooms and was designed by Frank Lloyd 'Write'! My husband said, we've got to see this place. Turned out it was a typo, 3.5 bathrooms and someone just added the numbers 3 and 5 together. I asked the realtor where the Frank Lloyd Wright allusion came from, he said, he just thought it looked like a Frank Lloyd Wright design, so he put that in the ad. When we saw it, we fell in love immediately. We found out that Frank Lloyd was in the area around the year our place was built, 1958, and he and his son designed several projects, including a public building just a few miles away on highway 62. Our place has a lot of elements that are reminiscent of his designs, so see for yourself and let us know what you think!

Every detail beautifully handled

  • 5 of 5
We were supposed to be 3 couples and ended up being 8 women. There was room for all of us, we lacked nothing, I needed superglue and looked in the drawer I would have put it in...it was there! I really mean it when I say this home is well stocked! We walked around the first night naming all the stars in the red room...we had so much fun! Everyone wants to come back next year. Martha is a dream to work with...call her if you have any questions, she is very responsive.

Great Desert Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
I came out to the House of the Three Wishes for a weekend of hiking and rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park. I was prepared for the splendor of the park, but the accommodations at this property were what really made this weekend trip great. My party had 8 people, and we all slept comfortably. I stayed in the guest house which could easily accommodate a small family of 3-4 all on its own. The mature joshua trees on the property really made the place feel like wishes could come true. My wish was for a comfortable night of sleep before trail-running through the desert, and it was granted in spades-- the beds were outstandingly comfortable. After coming back from the park, sore and dirty, the covered patio was indescribably nice. As I reclined on a sofa amid an eclectic yet comforting collection of art and decor, the desert breeze lulled me into a tranquil nap from which I awoke refreshed and ready for some gambling at the nearby Morongo Casino. I highly recommend this property.

Charming house, exceptionally clean, and perfect for a gathering of friends!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful house with a group of friends and had such a good time! The house is really cute, painted in fun colors, and laid out well for a group. The bedrooms are spacious and spread out for privacy, there are plenty of bathrooms, the main area is open and great for socializing, and the outdoor space is charming. We were just down the street from Joshua Tree National Park, which is stunning! It's easy to run into town for groceries, but the house is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. We highly recommend The House of Three Wishes!

Early Spring Joshua Tree Stay

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful house, easily hosted our group of 10. Kitchen had modern appliances, plenty of dishes/cookware, big enough to cook for a large group. Bedrooms and couches were comfortable. Large back patio area is great for hanging out.

Property owners were incredibly accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to vacation in the area.

A Vacation Home so Amazing that it IS the Destination!

  • 5 of 5
This home is the most amazing escape I have ever visited anywhere!
First and foremost, the owner was such a joy. My interaction from beginning to end made me feel like I was one of her own family. She was extremely pleasant and after visiting her jewel in the desert, it made perfect sense that the home was so filled with the same happiness and love as that she exuded so sincerely when I was making our plans.
We came to appreciate Joshua Tree National Park, the Integratron and Palm Springs and almost never wanted to leave the house! I wish my own home were so comfy and plush and the yard and surroundings were gorgeous. We loved that it was close to the park and everything else we wanted to visit in the Coachella Valley.
The guest house attached by a screened-in breezeway was charming and convenient with its own kitchenette and bathroom (perfect for my accompanying best friend and her new baby) and the main house was so comforting and luxurious that I was seriously saddened to leave it. Our large group of 10 friends and family all cheered that they wanted to return as soon as possible and I know we will be making this a regular for special occasions and holidays and every time available that we can.
If you've been looking for a dream, you've found it! We would have gladly spent much more for such a heavenly retreat.
Thank you Martha! You've touched our hearts and souls!

Joy at Joshua Tree House of three Wishes

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this wonderfully appointed Home was made perfect by all of the amenities. The guest room was ideal for our group with a baby: other guests heard no crying at all. Every bedroom has facilities that you can do own morning coffee and or snacks in own fridge and micro wave so the privacy is unmatched plus each bedroom has it's own entrance! Our host has thought of everything!

Our house is 3.9 miles from the west end of Joshua Tree National Park for hiking, rock climbing, and exploring exotic nature, yet we are also just a mile or two from a movie theater, several grocery stores and markets, and great eating choices (Mexican, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Thai, barbecue, breakfast cafes, hamburger stands, new age organic, the list goes on). For treasure hunters we have two flea markets and loads of shops selling everything from cast off wagon wheels to the craft of local artisans and unusual antiques.

Desert Hot Springs with all its spas, etc., is 23 miles away, Palm Springs is just a bit farther, at 30 miles. Another fun day trip takes you to Morongo Casino, 30 miles from us, or Fantasy Springs at 50 miles if you want to enjoy their spas and gaming. You can also take the back way to Big Bear and ski, that's 60 miles. Golfers in your group can enjoy a course a day for months with no repeats, while those wanting a more other worldly experience can visit the Integration by day and watch the clear bright skies for celestial events by night.
