NO PETS, MAX PARTY SIZE 6, NO EVENTS OR PARTIES, NO EXCEPTIONS THANKS ;) We provide a safe space for guests with pet allergies to stay and play. We operate on an on site water tank system.

The Ninja Ranch is perfect for a family, girls weekend, 3 couple getaway, or up to two small families. No exceptions due to onsite water supply. Ranch has 3 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. One opens to a south view, the other two to the north (one with direct access to the second bathroom.) Vaulted ceilings in the great room. Formal dining for 6 inside and out. A luxurious and well appointed ranch for the discerning traveler with inifnite special touches. The rental provides access to the first floor of the property only (owners storage loft excluded) with a lovely open floor plan in the main living area.

We have only one neighbor who values the seclusion of the Magical Mojave as much as we do. Therefore large groups, parties and noise are not a match for the Ninja Ranch.

Property is leased via a signed rental agreement. Payment is easily handled via the online payment system. I make a personal contact with each person I rent to and do my best to ensure your stay is pure mojave ninja magic. Ninja Ranch is a super special place that loves super people.

About Colleen (Chaz) O'Brien

Ninja, lover of the magical mojave, public lands planner nationally and internationally, operative reporting to organizer and instigator of the Joshua Tree Music Festival (may and oct. 2015)

Colleen (Chaz) O'Brien purchased this house in 2011

Why Colleen (Chaz) O'Brien chose California

The small town of Joshua Tree has a radically high ratio of lovely, creative folks. The wide open surroundings are inspiring. I had been looking for a place with some space, adjacent to the park. I fell in love with the ranch in a ninja minute.

Stay here only if you are looking for something MAGICAL!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most wonderful and magical stay at the Ninja House. We weren't sure if we were worthy of such ninja'ness but Chaz made us feel right at home and we are so grateful for the much needed break from the City Life. FULLY stocked kitchen, impeccable taste - we had a wedding to attend as well as this rad place called Joshua Tree National Park that we had to visit and totally had a hard time leaving the Ninja House, we were so happy there. Chaz, we didn't get to meet you, but again we're forever grateful for your accommodating our "extra" needs as well as the correspondences back and forth - beyond just VRBO. You are a special human and we are lucky to have had a piece of you - through the emails and calls as well as allowing us to stay in your beloved place. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Nice retreat in the desert

  • 5 of 5

I was so pleased with our stay at the Ninja Ranch and so were my friends. The house is very well thought out and has everything you would need. It is within close proximity to Joshua Tree National Park and local stores and restaurants. The place was relaxing and so nice to come back to after our day hikes. Chaz, the owner, was very accommodating from check in to check out and easy to reach. Would highly recommend if you are visiting the area.

We had a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The house has been designed beautifully. The furniture is clean, new, and comfortable. Our bed was great. The kitchen was stocked with good utensils, nice pots and pans, and nice dishes. We weren't crazy about the shower, which involves standing in a tall tub - it's just a little awkward to get out - but because we were asked to be super water-conscious, we didn't use it every day anyway.

This house felt luxurious in many ways, including a lovely patio space where we spent our evenings.

Do be aware of the need to be careful with water, and the septic system. I didn't see that as a drawback, merely a reality in the desert on a property that is self-sufficient in terms of water.

We didn't meet the owners, but they were very responsive to text messages and gave clear instructions in advance.

Our main purpose in being here was to spend multiple days seeing and hiking in Joshua Tree. Our springtime visit was perfect in terms of weather, flowers, and uncrowded trails!

We would gladly stay at Ninja Ranch again.

Owner's Response: So happy you had a great time! As a federal employee working in public lands, I have to make incremental improvements over time at the ranch. Each season sees new improvements. Next season we are planning a full stall shower as part of the ranch improvements in the green bedroom:) A few more years after that the vision is for the clawfoot tub to transform into a full steam sauna and shower.

PERFECT DESERT STAY!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about our stay at the Ninja Ranch! We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys, and wanted to stay close to the Joshua Tree National Park. The Ninja Ranch was perfect, from the close proximity to the Park (for our day hikes), to the RELAXING atmosphere after our hikes, to exceeding our every need! The home is very clean and every amenity is met! Chaz was very easy to work with and had great input for our hikes, eating, and star gazing...which I can't express how wonderful it is right out the front door!! My son brought his telescope and we even got to see the stripes on Jupiter since there isn't any light pollution! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I would absolutely recommend Chaz's home to anyone who wants to hike, relax, and rejuvenate themselves!! Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: I can't begin to express the happiness it brings to hear when the vision for Ninja Ranch is realized. A few more people, feeling a little happier and healthier, from a place that helps us disconnect from distractions and build deeper connections to each other and the world we live in. Thanks so much for joining us.

Wonderful time in the desert in a beautifully decorated ranch

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Ninja Ranch. It was clean and we loved Chaz's decorative eye. The beds were super comfortable and the kids loved the tiny door into their room. Thanks!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed:) I am trying to create a place where people can fully unplug, replug and recharge:) In light of that I try to create habitat, both inside and outside the ranch to help guests return to daily life refreshed. Thank You!

Fun for a group getaway

  • 5 of 5

The name is what initially caught our eye -- several of us are martial-arts-film enthusiasts -- and made for lots of fun pre-trip joking about our upcoming ninja training camp. When we arrived we were thrilled to find the Ninja Ranch to be a quiet, spacious, and well appointed home.

Our group of 5 was very comfortable in the house, which allowed for privacy in the bedrooms but also relaxed togetherness in the living area or outside. Especially impressive was the kitchen, which has all the equipment a serious cook needs. It's enough to tempt you to just hang out at the ranch, cooking and chatting, for your entire stay -- though of course you'll want to leave to explore the park, which is conveniently close.

Chaz was extremely helpful and responsive both before and during our stay. Our only regret is that we hadn't planned on staying longer. We definitely hope to come back to Ninja Ranch next year!
