Great for groups

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 stayed here for a week while attending a friend's wedding. This house had no problems accommodating our group. Super comfortable, clean and had plenty of space for all of us. Since we were coming in from all over the place we parked 5 rental cars with room to spare. We also cooked almost every night in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen. The location also served as a great home base for trips into nearby Joshua Tree National Park. Nancy, the owner is very pleasant to deal with, I would absolutely stay again.

Great location and Serene surroundings.

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of 4 Adults and 4 kids with every member enjoying this property. The feel of the location is semi-wild but close to civilization in terms getting your supplies.
Overall, I would highly recommend this property.

Excellent vacation rental near Joshua Tree National Park

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time staying in this rental home. It has a large kitchen that opens into a huge living and dining room. It was clean, comfortable, and there was plenty of room for 5 of us. It also has ample parking, and provided beautiful views of sunrises and sunsets. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for comfortable accommodations near Joshua Tree National Park, which is only about a 10 minute drive.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The place was very accommodating to three couples - three BR's and three bathrooms, pretty ideal. The scenery was excellent. We had a slight problem and the owners were there immediately to resolve the issue. We would have liked better quality cooking equipment but that would be our only suggestion for improvement. All in all, it was a great place.

Owner's Response: Thanks Alby for your comments! We wanted you to know that we immediately replaced the cooking ware with a Cuisinart set and hope you come back to visit!
