Overview

Joshua Tree House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath House In Park Boundary Area With Beautiful Mountain Views

Hike straight into the park from this contemporary desert retreat. Set on 5 acres of pristine desert landscape, this property offers a private and idyllic desert setting with all of the comforts of home.

Completely redesigned interior (full remodel in 2013) features high-end appliances, wide pine plank flooring with radiant heating, luxurious carrera marble bathrooms, and an open living area with renovated kitchen and 200 degree views. Designer touches include Artemis George Kovacs ceiling fans, Kohler fixtures, and a Design Within Reach fireplace.

Enjoy hiking or bouldering in the park, just a short walk away, or relax at home, with comfortable seating options throughout the house and property.

Living room is a terrific place to kick back and hang out with friends and family. Ample comfy seating surrounds the fireplace for a cozy night in during the colder winter months. The living room also features a 47” TV, complete with DVD/Blu-ray player, DVD library, and Wii console with games. Also available are board games, playing cards, a small stash of books, and some local guidebooks.

Open floor plan kitchen features contemporary stainless steel appliances, custom concrete counters, and high-end fixtures. Appliance highlights include high capacity refrigerator, dishwasher, wine fridge, and coffee maker. Kitchen is fully appointed with everything you’ll need to cook gourmet meals. There’s also a large gas grill right outside, covered so that you and your dinner will stay dry in case of rain. Dine indoors or out—there’s full seating for six around our custom-built outdoor table. After dinner, enjoy the night sky while sitting around the fire pit—the stars are amazing in the desert.

Spacious mid-century modern master bedroom with king-sized bed and high quality linens. En suite bath with luxurious soaking tub (enjoy a view of the boulders while you relax in the bath) and carrera marble tub surround and floors. Second bedroom features a high architectural ceiling, a queen bed, and an adjoining outdoor lounge area. Adjacent bath features a spa shower and carrera marble tile floor and shower surround. Guest bedroom/bath can be closed off for additional privacy.

Comfort Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This place is very well equipped, spotlessly clean, has a nice open feel to it, has a wonderful view, and is really comfortable. The attention to detail is evident. It was perfect for our group of 4 adults and our small dog. The owner clearly communicated that she was available, if needed. We didn't have to get in touch with her, though, because everything went perfectly well. We all had a wonderful stay.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved this house -- a gorgeous place with a good kitchen, and it was close to the park. The soaking tub was a nice bonus after a long day hiking in the park. Recommended!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good stay! And thanks so much for being a great guest and for your kind review. The tub is definitely one of my favorite features of the house as well : )

In need of repair

  • 3 of 5

This was our second time staying at the property. The house is clean and modern. When we stayed in May, the second sink in the bathroom was not functioning, and the fireplace in the living room was also broken. Five months later, on our second stay, both the sink and the fireplace were still broken. I think for the expensive rate, the landlord should have repaired both of these. On our last day, the entire plumbing was backed up, and the toilets could not be used, and the shower was overflowing. I will not be staying at this property in the future.

Owner's Response: Completely agree that the sink and fireplace are in need of prompt repair/upgrade. For the sink, we're waiting on a part to be sent from the manufacturer, but anticipate being able to make the repair within the next week or two. For the fireplace, it's currently a working wood stove, but we've chosen to keep it out of commission as such, because many people have a sensitivity to the wood smoke/residue. We've spoken to a contractor and plan to have the conversion to propane completed by mid-November. I'll post pictures when it's up and running--should be a great addition to the living room (though to its ambiance only, as the living room is fully heated without the contribution of the fireplace). Regarding the plumbing, I'm very sorry the guests experienced the issue described during their stay, but thankfully, it's not reflective of an underlying systemic or maintenance issue. A build-up of paper towels or "flushable" wipes blocked output from the mainline to the septic tank, so there wasn't any warning until the line started to back up, which could have been weeks or months after the blockage initiated. We have a local plumber who can promptly deal with any emergencies that arise, but it's important that guests flush only toilet tissue to keep the system in good shape. If ever guests are unsatisfied with the house in any way, I'm more than happy to discuss, preferably during their stay so that we can make it right. My primary goal in making the property available to others is to share the amazing surroundings, so I want very much for all guests to have only great memories of their time there.

absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful house exceeded all expectations. We loved the multiple sitting areas, including three outdoors spaces which were perfect in the summer evening. The bedrooms were perfect and the bathrooms thoughtfully stocked. We had planned to go out to eat but the open kitchen was so ideal for group cooking and hanging out that we decided to cook-in both nights. The first night we took advantage of the house's close proximity to the park and climbed up some boulders for a stunning view of the sunset. The house is perfectly located between two of the main entrances into the park, which was convenient for an afternoon rest as we went in August and it was HOT outside. We were two couples and the house offered both privacy and lots of communal space. McKenzie was considerate and responsive throughout the process, and I'm sure would have helped us with any issues had we had any! In short... stay here, you will not be disappointed.

A perfect place to have as your home base for visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The house has all the amenities that are need (cooking, internet, bedding, games, etc.) and the place is located right in the middle of the Northern Entrances. House was very clean and a great amount of space. Also beautiful night views of the stars.

Perfect for a stay in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely lovely in every way. Proximity could not have been better, about 5 min to the park entrance, Joshua Tree Village was about 5 minutes away with great little places to eat healthy food. The house was very private, and gorgeous. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well appointed, bathrooms were luxurious, heated floors were perfect, lots of big expansive windows to truly enjoy the scenery. Our kids loved it: good wifi for evening social media catch up, lots of board games, my daughter was in love with the deep soaking tub, and my son sketched every night outside staring up at the stars. Perfect, and this will be our go to each time we return to Joshua Tree.
