We are filmmakers, musicians...a creative couple who bought this place as a way to rejuvenate and escape the stresses of the city.

Michelle Strong purchased this house in 2010

Gorgeous remote park like setting. Peace and quiet.

Hit the reset button and renew.

you can get away from it all here---

in the winter we enjoy a roaring fire in the woodburning stove---early mornings as the sun rises---nights on the observation deck counting shooting stars. Our koi pond makes this an excellent spot for bird watching....owls, hawks, humming birds and a family of quail.

FUN DESERT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I had a fabulous time here surrounded by friends celebrating my 30th birthday. This house is great for accommodating anywhere from 2-8 people just fine. We BBQ'd, cooked in the kitchen, and it was great! No complaints at all. I hope to come back to this residence again and again for my getaways out of the city. Michelle and her husband were awesome too! I have and will recommend this to all of my friends.

RELAXING ESCAPE NEAR JOSHUA TREE

  • 5 of 5
Great 2BR house with plenty of sleeping surfaces: couches, trailer outside, etc. We cooked most of our meals for the weekend, and the kitchen was more than adequate. The outdoor fire pit, stargazing/sunbathing platform and dining area were where we spent the majority of our stay and it was awesome. The landlord was also great to work with; she was really responsive and gave us great recommendations of things to do around town.

Note, this is in Landers, which is about 10-15 minutes from Joshua Tree proper, but we didn't mind that it was a little drive to get into town.

BEAUTIFUL QUIET LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We totally enjoyed our stay in this cute property which was even nicer than the photos showed it to be. It had so many nice touches and felt homey. The kids enjoyed playing the drums and sitting up on the viewing platform in the back yard. The fenced yard was perfect for letting the dogs out and about and we totally enjoyed our time. We'd love to come and stay for longer next time!

CHARMING ECLECTIC PROPERTY WITH MANY UNIQUE FEATURES.

  • 5 of 5
Four of us plus one dog spent 4-nights at the property as a base for visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We found the property, charming and comfortable in an interesting, quite location on the outskirts of Landers. The whole set up seemed to blend well into the surroundings as well as being reflective of the character of Landers. Our dog particularly loved exploring the large fenced area surrounding the house.

Please be aware that if your focus is Joshua Tree National Park the property is some 15-miles form the nearest entrance gate but to us it was worth the drive.

PERFECT RETREAT IN THE DESERT

  • 5 of 5
This place is unreal. We stayed over New Years, and what a magical way to welcome in 2014! This house would be an ideal artists retreat. The owners did a beautiful job creating an artistic, peaceful, and very comfortable space to get away from it all. When the time came to leave, we were fantasizing about staying forever. There's tons of space in this house, both inside and outside. We loved spending time outside around the fire, passing a guitar. Our favorite spots inside were by the wood burning heater and in the big gorgeous kitchen and dining area. We also loved the claw foot tub in the bathroom and the outdoor shower, and the ample hang space in the living/music room and front room. The view from the observation deck is unreal, and there are a dozen cozy spots outside to lounge with a book and a cup of coffee in the morning. It was a dream, thanks Michelle! We're definitely hoping to come back again next year.

LAID BACK AND INVITING...

  • 4 of 5
We love the high desert, making several trips annually. VRBO is the greatest, never letting us down and this place is no exception. There is plenty of room to roam both inside and out. Highlights for us were the huge kitchen (which is where we spent most of our time) and the claw foot bathtub. Outdoors we enjoyed the Koi pond, bottle trees, and viewing deck.

This property is in Landers, which is over hill and dale on a two lane road. I would recommend finding it for the first time in daylight. You'll want to factor a 20/30 minute drive to and from hwy 62.

The Integratron is nearby, but be sure to call for a reservation ahead of time...it was fully booked the weekend we stayed at this property (sadly).

This house is a home...the owners clearly spend time here and the energy speaks to that.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Tami. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Landers is 15 miles from Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree. We are about 4 miles from the Integratron. Both Pappy and Harriet's and the Integratron are wildly popular venues. Making reservations 2 or 3 weeks in advance is highly recommended.
