About Christa Cranston

After quitting our own business (Mark) and corporate job (me) and then selling our home with everything in it, we travelled the US in our motorhome for what came to be 6 wonderful years! We drove our motorhome to Joshua Tree in 2004 to visit friends and never left. It is a beautiful place!

Christa Cranston purchased this house in 2005

Why Christa Cranston chose California Desert

It's seclusion but close proximity to town makes this a lovely location. We love that it sits on a dead end street, never having to see or hear through traffic. Your neighbors are the rocks and mountains this home sits up against. Peace and quiet..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us experience your house. You have excellent taste in everything from fence design to dishes. We felt right at home. It was so great to sit on the patio in the morning and evenings. We loved cooking in the kitchen with every gadget we could need. This house really has everything to make a perfect weekend where all you need is a trip to the grocery store and some good sneakers. We loved hiking in the park and coming home to our Joshua Tree house away from home. We loved it!

Lovely, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property on the edge of the wilderness, comfortable living room and bedrooms, spacious kitchen and nice outdoor seating areas. Just far enough from town to feel out of the rush yet close enough for shopping and going out for a bite. The owners were very helpful and the house was as advertised. The local Indian restaurant is quite good (Sam's). Convenient to the west entrance to the national park. The only critique - a very minor one - is that the nonstick pans need to be replaced. Otherwise, the kitchen was well-equipped. Thanks again for a beautiful stay. I'd come back in a heartbeat.

Great Hosts

Christa and Mark were the perfect hosts for this property. They were great to deal with in all respects and wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again. Thank you Christa and Mark for a wonderful experience.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was very clean and was stocked with everything we needed. And it's in a really special location. Our three kids loved climbing on all the rocks behind the house and on the jungle gym at the house (if you have no kids...not to worry, the jungle gym is not an eyesore).

There is also a separate studio which is really nice for a third couple. There is a lot of nice outdoor space to have a meal, hang out etc...

Christa was incredibly quick to respond to all our questions.

It's really a perfect little house to rent.

Absolute fantastic property and location amid the Joshua Tree environment!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent experience.....

I booked a week prior to our stay for just two of us; few days later I added two of our friends who wanted to come, and Christa gave me prompt replies to my questions and seamlessly added our guests to our reservation without hassle.

The property is private with a great cozy layout, and all the amenities. Great details throughout such as the hammock, hot tub, grill, claw bath tub, and wifi! I was pleasantly surprised the house sat on a bluff overlooking the valley below and the Joshua Tree horizon.

The only thing I would mention is we could not find a light over the outdoor grill, for evening cooking; but we may have just missed it, if it was there...

I have already sent details to a few friends about renting this great place in the future...

Oh, did I mention the crystal clear starry nights!!!!!!!

Best

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two daughters, had a fantastic stay. The house and property are everything as described. Such an amazing property with everything you need. We spent every day in Joshua Tree National Park (just a short distance away) and returning after a long day of hiking it was like coming "home". I needed to make a change to our reservations and Christa was very accommodating! Great location, great house, great experience. Would definitely rent from Christa again.

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

El Coyote exceeded our expectation and then some! The place was immaculate, very welcoming, and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend to unplug and unwind away from the city. The photos of the house looked great online, but the place was even better in person. The location was quite amazing as there was a mountain side in the backyard which you could climb to watch the sunrise/sunset with an amazing view of the valley. With an outdoor grill, fireplace, and hot tub, it was a great way to hangout well into the night to the sounds of coyote packs howling around at night =)

The owner was very responsive and thorough with instructions/information regarding the house which made everything that much easier for us. I highly recommend El Coyote, and I'll definitely be coming back again for another session of R&R with friends! Thank you Christa!
