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.

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.

Clean and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is is a find! Best in the high desert. Very clean and comfortable with exceptionally good security. Dave is a great host and has done a fine job of updating the cottage. We hope to return here next winter.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at Dave and Patti's cottage and it was just perfect. We were in town for the Hwy 62 Open Studio Tour and central location of the cottage made it the perfect home base. The screened in front porch was our favorite place to sit and visit in the evening. Everything was extremely clean with high end appliances and comfy beds. Thanks Dave and Patti for an awesome weekend!

Excellent cottage close to JTNP

  • 5 of 5

David and Patti met us at the start of our stay to welcome and show us around. The cottage was so cute and nicely set up. Everything we needed was there: toaster, coffee maker with coffee/tea, the best JT book that I used the whole time in the park, comfortable bed, books and DVDs, chairs to sit outside (watched sunrise and stargazed), patio (we didn't use it, but it would have been nice to grill). It was the perfect location for park access. Great haven to return to after a long day in the park. We enjoyed the stay very much!!
