Overview

California Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Apartment, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), close to Park entrance

Welcome to Joshua Tree, a desert community of rugged mountains, playful granite piles, magically quiet nights, peace and solitude and all the rock climbing, picture taking and sightseeing you yearn for in your travels here. The studio apartment has it's own parking, drive, entrance, porch and outside area. it has privacy fencing, sound proofing, and extra thick walls to make your apartment stay a wonderful experience.

You can relax on the studio patio and take in the wondrous panorama of the skyline of Joshua Tree National Park. Just recharge and enjoy nature’s gift of wildlife and wild scenery. Enjoy the constant chatter of our cactus wrens, whose nest is a few feet from the patio or the family of quail who roost overnight in the yucca not far from your door. Perhaps a coyote will sing you a song. This is our desert music, a concert that welcomes you.

The studio is furnished for two. A comfortable bed, sparkling clean rooms, a kitchenette with a microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, frying pan and a variety of pots and pans, utensils and spices which should make anyone who enjoys cooking happy.

The porch sports a gas BBQ and affords privacy, comfort and incredible views of the park. When you’re ready for that walk the hiking trail is an easy 5 minute walk away. The Joshua Tree Highlands, where our studio is located, is a series of sandy roads, seldom traveled, where we all take advantage of our special surroundings with an evening walk.

If your sights are more ambitious we can provide you with horseback riding, rock climbing and biking, guided by local professionals. Or, you could travel into the park and visit the Wonderland or Parker dam or hike through any of a thousand granite valleys.

We are blessed with several super music festivals and Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneer town offering a great music venue. With spiritual retreats and yoga centers, with alternative health care, with fine health food stores, for such a tiny spot you’re sure to find something exciting to do. Enjoy your stay and come back.

About Piper

Piper and her dog Ivy, she is a gardener, rockhound, has a hound and loves the desert.

Piper purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Piper chose California

I once had a bed and breakfast in Hawaii and when building this home could not resist but to put in a small vacation rental studio that would be charming and affordable to adventurous travelers.

What makes this apartment unique

It is so quiet here, there are only the sound of birds and coyote choirs. Wildlife is abundant, and happy. The starry nights are vivid, partly because of low light pollution and the lack of humidity in the atmosphere. The milky way is velvety and bright here.

Quiet and serene

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Two minor initial concerns: the weak wifi and the darkness of the apartment interior. Then again, having only two small windows probably helps keep the apartment cooler in the desert heat. If you want to enjoy the amazing view, you'll need to sit outside (on either the patio chairs or the wooden bench), and if you sit quietly, the jack rabbits, quail, and mourning doves offer quite a bit of companionship. Everything was immaculately clean. The small kitchen is well equipped but has no range, so don't plan on cooking with anything more than the microwave or the outdoor BBQ.

Absolutely Perfect Getaway in the Right Spot

  • 5 of 5

Piper/Doug, thank you so much for your quick response and timely reserve. I know it was last minute and you guys delivered. Complete with excellent directions, a hidden away desert oasis with the most beautiful surroundings and just the right size for my little dog Rocky and myself. The grounds couldn't be more rustic Joshua Tree and your place was like a little slice of heaven on Earth. I literally could not have asked for a more quaint, artistic, delicately manicured and to top it off, a welcome chalk board with my name on it. I had zero expectations and was catapulted into the 9th dimension. Bottom line: it was exactly what I was looking for in a JT getaway - perfection. I'm actually quite envious. Off the dirt road and easy access to the town and to the park gates. Wow. I cannot wait to get out there again. Recommended for a couple only and dog or single. Leave the kids at home! Thank you again, that was a Birthday treat I will never forget and will continue to repeat. Love, Anthony & Rocky.

Cozy desert retreat

  • 3 of 5

Cute place. Great location. Bed not so good. And please, fix the front door where it scrapes the floor.
