Excellent property, and perfect place for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for something in a natural setting, but with the comforts of home, and flexible enough for a group of four.

Gerhard's place more than met our needs. It was just as we'd imagined from the description (no, even better!): we could watch wildlife and do photo-shootings and hikes from the house. Not only the home itself, but also the hosting was well thought out. Top ratings for maintenance and cleanliness as well. We found the kitchen to be more than adequate for preparing simple meals; and WiFi worked perfectly. The service from the owner was quick and uncomplicated. We will definitely recommend it to friends or relatives, and hope to maybe get back ourselves someday.

The property was just as it had been published- great location to both the town and National Park!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, quiet and very private. When we ran out of a few essentials, the owner , Gerhard, was very responsive in having them replaced. The two fireplaces and the fire pit were a plus, with wood provided. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to future renters.

Wonderful stay. Communication with owner was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The owner was quick to confirm our reservation, and provided very clear instructions on all the essentials of staying at his property.

Its close proximity to the national park made it so easy to spend several days enjoying the park as a family, with the added convenience of being close to town so we could enjoy what the community had to offer as well.

Thank you!

Awesome desert getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect get away house in the desert. Close to the Joshua Tree national park enterance with beautiful land all around. We enjoyed the AC and beautiful home while we watched quail, rabbits, and coyotes outside! The house was very clean and comfortable, but we never got the wifi to fully work.

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful artist's home for a weekend. The high ceilings, concrete floors, and thoughtful decor was a combination of warm, inviting and stylish. The location was quiet and removed, but a short drive away from the town center, Joshua Tree National Park, Pioneertown, etc. Gerhard was so accommodating and responsive, I would go back to his beautiful house in a heartbeat. The only thing I would say is that the kitchen is a touch minimal, but it didn't prevent me from cooking all my meals. Thanks for a much-needed, relaxing weekend!
