Why David Jensen chose California Desert

Our friends and family are frequent visitors and always enjoy their stay in our guest cottage. We decided to open our doors to other guests and enjoy the diversity of the people who are drawn to the beauty of the desert.

What makes this cottage unique

Joshua Tree National Park is the major attraction in the area. Downtown JT has small unique shops, galleries, and restaurants. Palm Springs and all its attractions are a short drive, about 35 miles, down the highway. A bit further is the Cabazon Outlet Mall and Casino. Big Bear resort area is an easy day trip for those who enjoy mountain outings.

All the comforts of home just outside Joshua Tree National Park

  • 5 of 5

I must say our visit to Joshua Tree was so amazing to witness a desert in bloom. We did not want to leave the park, however the proximity of this charming cottage allowed us to come "home" (and it does feel like home), rest a bit and go back out.

David provided a good collection of guide books and trail maps to get us on our way and a cooler so that we could pack a lunch for our foray into the natural world.

Back at the cottage, there is a lovely enclosed patio for relaxing with a glass of wine under a crisp night sky filled with stars, and a screened in porch for watching the sunrise or enjoying wildlife.

It's a gem

  • 5 of 5

The hospitality was great, the cottage was well-stocked and the thoughtful touches, like the picnic cooler and ice packs, the dvd and book collections and -- especially -- the beautiful art, were lovely. We really appreciated the quiet location as well as its being close to the park and to other places in the area like 29 Palms, Yucca Valley shopping, etc. David and Patti are knowledgeable and helpful hosts -- as we only had a week to explore, it was great to have access to in-depth local knowledge.

A perfect location, a great home to return to every evening!

  • 4 of 5

This little home was immaculately clean. The kitchen was more than adequately stocked. All the guide books and information on Joshua tree readily available. A delightfully stocked library of novels.... we were all set!

Knowing the owners were right next-door if we needed them was great even though we had no need for anything.

This was a great choice for us to stay for the four days of hiking in Joshua tree. We can certainly recommend it.

An Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at David and Patti's cottage for 3 nights while visiting Joshua Tree National Park in September, 2016. It was the most perfect place to stay....a great kitchen, nice screened-in porch, and a private patio for viewing the stars in the evening. Overall the cottage was very clean and very comfortable. The bed was comfortable as well. Communication with David was easy and flawless. From the cottage it was only about 3 miles to the western entrance of the park. Do yourself a favor and reserve the cottage if you are planning on visiting the area. You will not be disappointed!

Wonderful cottage for a couple or small family visiting Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

Two of us and our 7yo son stayed three nights at this cottage and would definitely go back when visiting JTNP. David and Patty are great folks and great to rent form. They responded to all my emails and texts instantly. When we arrived they met us at the cottage and gave us a quick run down of the place. They are very good at respecting your privacy but also very responsive and attentive should you need assistance.

The cottage itself is spotlessly clean and very well maintained -everything worked great. Supplies are well stocked. Both the bed and the sofa sleeper are very comfortable. The cottage is located on a quiet street 5 minutes form the west entrance station to JTNP and less than a mile form the visitors center and town.
