Joshua Tree - Panorama Heights Desert House, Views, Privacy

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2+ Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This home was originally built in the 1950's and developed over time to respond perfectly to the challenges and opportunities afforded by the Joshua Tree environment. There are 4 different outdoor living areas, all oriented differently. In summer, there is always a shady, glare-free spot to lounge. In winter, you can always find a place to feel the suns welcoming warmth. There is even a great place to enjoy the huge west view without fighting the west sun- anyone who has lived in the desert knows how special that is. There is even an observation platform high above the roof that offers a 360 degree view of the stars that would rival a planetarium.

Indoors, there are lots of different spaces so a person can be as social, or private as the mood strikes. There is even a large, screened in patio- perfect for a kids 'camp-out' or a drowsy afternoon nap.

The interiors are bright and airy. The well appointed kitchen is adjacent to a main outdoor entertaining area- cooks and their crowd can always mingle.

The property is very private, and ensures that your only neighbors are the large covey of quail that live around the house. Children love to watch how, like clockwork, the quail return every evening to roost in the large olive tree next to the house.

What makes this house unique

No matter what the weather, there is always a fun outdoor spot at this house. But the real unique feature is the proximity to the Park Boundary, and spectacular hiking and bouldering within a 15 minute walk- its like your own private National Park. And, if you feel like taking a walk on the wild side, Pappy and Harriets ( the 'Best Honkeytonk West of the Mississippi') is just 30 minutes away in Pioneertown.

Perfect desert retreat!

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely and comfortable home. Impeccably clean. Very private. The home is thoughtfully supplied with everything you need right where you would expect it to be.

Owner is gracious and available if needed.

Look no further!

Peaceful, beautiful views, everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Panorama Heights! Exceptionally clean, kitchen and bathrooms very well-stocked with necessities. Great outdoor spaces with plenty of comfortable seating. Private but close to the park and to town. We didn't want to leave. Definitely recommend this place...the owner does a fantastic job making the house comfortable and welcoming.

Beautiful Desert Views, Comfortable House Indoors and Out, Close to Joshua Tree Park

  • 5 of 5

We look for privacy, beautiful views, desert landscapes and comfortable surroundings. This home provided everything we wanted for our month in the desert. Three adults could cook a meal together in the kitchen without tripping over each other, and the barbecue and outdoor dining room were great. There were beautiful views of the desert and the valley from every window. We enjoyed the movies in the comfy living room and discovered the location of all the WIFI connections in town. (We were forced to face our internet addiction.)This house was the perfect base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park, the Coachella Valley and Palm Springs, the Amboy Crater and so much more.

Sweet spot!

Great views, spacious. Close to town but far enough to feel isolated.

Manicured Grounds/Spotless, Comfortable Home/Blue Sky and Starry Nights - Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

My photos from our experience look exactly like the posting! So impressed with the many outdoor settings in which to relax. We had a lovely stay recently and would love to return. It was cool when we arrived and the enclosed sun porch was naturally toasty and welcoming as the rest of the home warmed up. So quiet, serene and comfortable - do not hesitate to have your next desert experience here on California Ave! Only upsetting thing I can think of to report was that we did not have more time to spend here in JT with this as our home base - definitely coming back! :)
