Overview

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

Couples refuge, 1200 sq ft home; 1 bedroom, 2 bath, dining & living room, 2+acre

Unlike a lot of the properties in Joshua Tree, the streets are paved all the way to the entrance. 'Desert Sky Compound' - an Artist's Haven and Awesome Couples Refuge. Spacious 1200 square foot home - high ceilings, an open floor plan, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, 2 rear patio areas plus a front porch for enjoying the view or evening breeze. This unique custom built home is located on 2.3 acres with local wildlife, Joshua Trees, landscaped walkways and dozens of unique types of cactus blooming throughout the year. Price includes city taxes, cleaning fee & all amenities listed.

Full kitchen with 4 burner stove, oven, full size refrigerator, toaster, dishes, bowls, pots, pans and all utensils. (Olive oil, coffee maker including coffee & filters, teas, sugar, salt & pepper provided.)

100% Solar power (yet also on the “grid” for constant power), central heating, air conditioning, wood burning stove, ceiling fans. WiFi and movie DVD's and music CD's with monitor for your viewing or listening pleasure. Games, cards, backgammon. (No cable television, no phone.)

From our property atop a hill you get beautiful night village views as well as of the Southeastern Mojave Desert mountains. Two sides of the property are walled so you really feel like you are in your own private sanctuary with rabbits, quails and road runners who frequent the grounds – as well as doves, chipmunks, ground squirrels, wren, lizards, humming birds. Once the sun goes down, the property is visited by bats, occasional bobcats and owls. You will be amazed at the clear and vibrant starry skies here in Joshua Tree – the milky way is visible here along with all the other constellations.

Call it a retreat, refuge, sanctuary, oasis, getaway or hideaway – whatever word you choose will describe this beautiful vacation rental. (A second home, owner occupied, adjoins the vacation home by a soundproofed cement wall, and a 6 foot block and fence privacy wall separates the vacation home backyard, all of the guests have positively commented on the great privacy, especially with 2.3 acres.)

Location – Location – Location:

We're 5.6 miles from the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, 1234 square miles, with groves of Joshua Trees, incredible gigantic boulders and some of the best rock climbing in the world. If you don't feel like driving, then a minutes walk up the street (900 yards) is where you'll find a trailhead (Wildlife Habitat Restoration area) to wander - climbable rocky hills, 360 degree views of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, 29 Palms and Joshua Tree National Park.

About 2 miles from our Getaway is “Downtown” Joshua Tree which has art galleries, a yoga studio, adventure & hiking outfitter stores, a bakery, gift shops, many restaurants including great burgers and great vegan fare, even a (remarkably good) pizza parlor as well as other restaurants including Thai, a saloon and home style coffee shop. A National Park Visitors Center is located right off the main drag, so you can park there and check out the shops before you head to our backyard, Joshua Tree National Park.

Just about 40 minutes away is Palm Springs! If you do venture to Palm Springs for the day then consider going to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Air museum or The Living Desert.

About 40 minutes away is the famous 'Giant Rock' - a large freestanding boulder in the Mojave Desert near Landers, California, that covers 5,800 square feet of ground and is seven stories high. Giant Rock is purported to be the largest free standing boulder in the world.

OTHER: If you're feeling adventurous - Salton Sea is less than 90 minutes away. Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is 2 hours away. The Tortoise Rock Casino is 18 miles away in 29 Palms. The Cabazon outlets are about 40 minutes away. Lake Havasu on the California/Nevada border is 3 hours away. In Laughlin you'll find casino's such as Harrah's & The Golden Nugget plus tourist attractions including the Davis Dam and the Colorado River. The London Bridge (Lake Havasu City) is a short detour along the way

There are many many great hikes in Joshua Tree National Park and the Visitors Center (6554 Park Blvd) can guide you to the best ones based on your interests and hiking ability.

Restaurants – minutes from the house include:

Natural Sister Cafe (Health Food)

61695-B Twentynine Palms Hwy;

Crossroads Cafe & Tavern (Local coffee shop, homemade food);

Park Rock Cafe (next to the visitor center);

Joshua Tree Saloon;

Pie for the People (Yummy Pizza);

Royal SIAM Cuisine Thai;

Sam's Indian Food;

Joshua Tree Saloon

About Pam and John

Owners John and Pam both work in the Entertainment industry - Pam in television, John in features although they are now both semi-retired.

Pam and John purchased this house in 2010

Why Pam and John chose Joshua Tree

They love the desert and the fresh, clean air and natural surroundings and wildlife. Best of all - the lack of city crowds and traffic!

This vacation rental is fairly new to VRBO. They had been renting it privately. We take pride in our property and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

What makes this house unique

We love the house and vacation home because it was custom built with extra thick walls, has passive solar features, high ceilings and is in a quiet and secluded part of town. We love being able to walk 10 minutes to hike or just sit on the patio and watch the abundant wildlife. And because we're high up, we even have a view of the city lights.

Comfortable Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very serene and comfortable stay at this spacious Joshua Tree home. The privacy and landscaping are superior, and the owners make sure to provide all the material needs for sleeping, cooking, eating, lounging, strolling, and so on. Be aware that there is a high brick wall that surrounds the yard, and this can be seen as either advantageous or disadvantageous. Certainly the wall provides a feeling of sanctuary, and this is reflected in the fact that the owners call the property a "compound." But the wall also serves to block out the backyard view of some of the spectacular surrounding desert scenery, and sometimes we found ourselves wishing to feel a bit less hemmed in. It's an entirely subjective response; some visitors will appreciate the wall and some won't. Setting that one consideration aside, the home and grounds are gracious, well-equipped, and the location is superb.

What a fantastic place in a great area!!

Unfortunately, my colleague & I were on a 'working holiday', so we couldn't make use of the house and it's lovely location to the full, but I have promised my wife that we will come and stay for a proper holiday in the future.

Great Place in Joshua Tree!

  • 5 of 5

Great home away from home, in a quite, peaceful and beautiful location. Just a few minutes from the Park and a few minutes from the restaurants and shops in town. Very clean and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, patio and lovey cactus and wildflower garden. We have rented a lot of places and this home is at the top! We'll be back!

Truly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many places in Joshua Tree and this is both the most comfortable AND the most reasonably priced. Can't beat that. Beautiful setting, near the park, with a wonderful hiking trail just 5 minutes walk up the road. Very spacious home, great kitchen to cook and eat in, and very comfortable living room for hanging out, reading, etc. Pam and John are terrific hosts, and the place is meticulously kept. Highly recommend. Will definitely return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

After we arrived and walked through the house and yard, we were already trying to figure out when we would return! Can not recommend the place highly enough. Joshua Tree is magical.

There is a wildlife refuge down the block to watch amazing sunsets. The yard at the house has a stone wall that gives privacy from the road and blocks the wind so you watch the equally beautiful sunrise in the morning.

Of course, there is the park and plenty of other fun things to do... Like relax!

Excellent hosts!

Great

  • 5 of 5

Joshua Tree National Park was amazing, and the rental was great. The property is only a few miles from town and the park. It was well stocked and had everything we needed for our stay. The views are beautiful, and the hosts provided great info on hiking and dining nearby. The photos were accurate, and everything was clean and well maintained.
