Description

Joshua Tree Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Hike by day with the lizards in Joshua Tree National Park and hang by night with the lounge lizards in Joshua Tree's local cafes and art galleries. Or stay in, and snuggle in the king-sized bed and watch the desert world go by; jack rabbits, quail, bobcats, and visiting coyote will all make their way past large picture windows. Three patios offer spectacular 270 degree views of the sunrise, the sunset, and of course, the sweeping night stars.

Worlds away from crowds and traffic this lovely house is set in the hushed wilderness of Joshua Tree Highlands on 2.5 acres, and is a quick 2 miles to Joshua Tree National Park.

This sweet retreat offers two master bedrooms; living room; an open floor-plan, fully equipped + renovated kitchen and full bathroom with a spacious bathtub/shower. All boast new, fully renovated modern fixtures and appliances. If you don't feel like cooking, you're a short drive from several good restaurants and a great cup of coffee in the town of Joshua Tree.

House location was wonderful. Great view. Many birds, squirrels, bunnies. Nice bathroom.

Some cleaning issues, such as filthy oven and toaster oven. Kitchen sink drains slowly. Not a deal breaker as we will be back😄.

wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful in all respects; very clean and comfortable. Very quiet even being in a community, there not many people around while we were there. The house stayed cool when it was warm, the kitchen was fully equipped with a full sized refrigerator with large freezer. Was an excellent house for our dog, who had his first sighting of a coyote and jack rabbits. Many windows and many places to sit depending on if one wanted sun or shade. We didn't use the tub outside due to the drought, but it looked like it would be very fun to sit in while star gazing. We were very pleased with everything although we couldn't find (or there was not one as stated) the CD player which was a little disappointing. All in all, highly recommended- Judith Mustard

The Adobe House Provides Great Location and Amenities to Relax and Enjoy the Desert

  • 4 of 5

Great setting in the JT Highlands. Minutes from the Park Entrance and other attractions. Amenities are accurate. The outdoor bathtub is heaven. Some improvements would help.

The Good:

- Best view in the JT Highlands! The queen room side gets the sunrises, the king room side gets the sunsets

- The king bed is firm, the queen bed is firmer - we tried both and had good sleep. Pillows are soft and fresh linens

- The front door sitting area provided a great spot to view the city lights and stars at the same time

- Houses in proximity (~100 yards) but still felt secluded,

- Great array of wildlife visible from the house (coyotes, quails, rabbits...)

- Kitchen is stocked and offers great space and equipment for preparing meals, fridge makes great ice

- The outdoor bathtub is heaven, this helped us cool off tremendously, along with the constant breeze

- The bathroom has a great big tub and sink, towels were fresh and soft, water pressure and temps were good

- Windows and glass surround the house, great for views of the vast desert

The Not-So-Good (reasons for the 4 stars):

- The weather was peaking upper 90's to 100's. The swamp cooler and ceiling fans tried their best, but the house only got cooled to about 85's even at night. Perhaps providing electric fans in the bedrooms can help especially during summer.

- The kitchen didn't have a microwave so we just used the toaster oven to reheat foods

- The winds do pick up at night, the king room screen door is loose and it does keep banging against the door and frame, making it a little difficult to sleep.

- The Wifi is only about a 2Mbps speed (may not be enough for Netflix, etc..), but we didn't mind too much

- The hammock and reclining outdoor chair on the pictures were not present on our visit - perhaps they broke?

Other Notes:

- The JT Highlands roads are not paved. A standard car/truck/suv will do fine, but sports or lowered vehicles will have difficulty.

- With AT&T we got about 1-2 bars inside the house

- PioneerTown and the Giant Rock in Landers were nearby and are great attractions. Due to perhaps the hot weather, we were alone at these sites - kind of eerie but a great experience at the same time.

- We didn't get to try any due to timing, but Jeff provided a great list of eateries and attractions, will definitely try them on our next visit.

The Adobe House provided what we were looking for - a relaxing weekend with a little adventure on the side. Will definitely be back.

Thanks Jeff!

great, quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

spent one night at the house and enjoyed it very much. the house isn't as secluded as it appears to be in the pictures...not that it mattered, as all was as quiet as could be, but there are several houses in the vicinity. it's close enough to the park and downtown Joshua Tree which is very convenient. the house was clean and well kept. I'm a super neat freak and did notice that the floors were a little dirty (hair and dust). but nothing that would take away from the experience. the kitchen was stocked with essentials...utensils, plates, cups, pots, pans, etc. no TV or docking station for ipads/phones, so be sure to bring something if you would like music or a movie. there are several games and a bookshelf. there is wifi. however, being in the desert beauty, we were happy to just make dinner and have some wine and sit outside and watch the sunset, bunnies, and coyotes. nice touch is the outdoor tub. owners provide all instructions with little to no interaction. not even sure if they live nearby. would definitely stay again.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet with beautiful views. The dirty linens were still on the beds when we arrived after 4:00 pm however, the owner was easy to contact and took care of everything quickly. The home was clean and well stocked. Would recommend and definitely stay again! Loved our time in Joshua Tree!

Oasis in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent four nights here and loved it. The house is clean, nicely decorated and efficient. The main attractions, however, are the views, the privacy and the stars at night. You will not be disappointed! I've forwarded the house link to several friends and family members. It's an ideal location for visiting Joshua Tree...only 2 miles to the park entrance. Enjoy!
