Overview

Joshua Tree Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

Minutes From Joshua Tree National Park: 3-bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Home.

High above the village of Joshua Tree, only steps from Joshua Tree National Park. You will be mesmerized by the ever-changing play of sun and moon on the desert landscape.

Amenities include: Spacious great room with fireplace; Wi-Fi; flat screen TV with Roku, Pandora and Netflix for Internet music and movies; DVD player and collection of DVD classics. Open the twelve-foot window wall and experience the sights and sounds of the desert from inside the living area. The full size kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, new stainless appliances, a walk-in pantry, everything you need to prepare your gourmet meals, laundry facilities and a gas barbeque.

The master bedroom, in vintage Mexican décor, has a deluxe queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a sliding glass door onto the expansive covered patio. The master bathroom has a beautiful Talavera tiled vanity, walk-in shower and jetted tub to soothe those weary muscles after a day of hiking. Choose the Cowgirl room with its antique décor, two twin beds, ceiling fan, or enjoy the Cowboy room’s old Western décor, queen bed, ceiling fan, and sliding glass door onto the patio. The guest bathroom has a full shower and tub. All towels and linens are provided.

Luna Vista has central heating and air-conditioning, but the outside living areas will draw you outdoors - try the cowboy shower or a soak in a cowboy tub! There’s nothing better after a day of desert fun! And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience the meandering nature trail that will lead you around the 2.5-acre property. It may inspire you to continue hiking right into Joshua Tree National Park. Let us know in our wildlife log what creatures you encountered. With all this to see and do just outside your backdoor, you might never want to leave this magical place!

Why Cindy Beck chose California

Our family has been coming to and loving the Mohave Desert for 4 generations. When our primitive cabin of over 50 years burned in 2007 in a wildfire in the Eastern Sierras we were devastated. But from the ashes came this new home in the high desert at Joshua Tree! We have found another place of peace and refuge right next to the spectacular Joshua Tree National Park. We fell in love with the abundance of flora and fauna, the unusual and awesome geology, the glorious sunrises and sunsets, the forever views of the ever-changing desert landscape, the dazzling night sky and, of course, the beautiful moonrises…

What makes this house unique

The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...

5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful! We have stayed a quite a few vacation rentals and this place was the most well stocked of any of them. Cindy thought of absolutely everything...we even found birthday candles in the drawer for our friends birthday! If there is anything you forgot at home I guarantee Cindy will have already thought of it. The house and kitchen look completely brand new on the inside. I highly recommend this rental and we hope to visit again soon.

Pristine Desert Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and maintained desert home with great views. If you are a quiet the jack rabbits and quail will continue to wander through as if they don't mind your stopping by. Access to Joshua Tree National Park is a short drive away. We took one morning to go there for some rock climbing and some spectacular scenery. Cindy has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. Be prepared to drive on dirt roads to access the property which is common in this area, and totally worth it.

Really beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us spent a couple nights here for a girls reunion, and this house was a wonderful place for us. The location couldn't be better - up high overlooking the valley and the beautiful mountains, with easy access to the national park. The house has a direct view of the sunrise and moonrise, and we happened to be there for full moon which was lovely. The house is very comfortable and well furnished. Very homey and we really didn't want to leave! Thanks Cindy!

Beautiful home with incredible views and hiking!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at Cindy's amazing home and really enjoyed our stay. It's on top of a hill with great 360 degree views of the mountains and valley. The interior is super comfortable and the kitchen/pantry is outfitted with all the necessities. The patio and areas surrounding the house are complete with many different lounge/seating areas, fire pit, cowboy hot tub and trails leading out into the wilderness. We even saw a desert tortoise that came up onto the patio to hand out with us. Being that it was spring time, plants throughout the whole area were blooming and colorful. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place in Joshua Tree!

Wonderful visit to Joshua Tree

  • 4 of 5

We visited with our three children and Aunt and Uncle, so home was quite comfortable and roomy with 4 adults and 3 children. Outside allows for wonderful view and plenty of exploring for kids. The home was perfectly prepared when we arrived. Clean and organized. All things worked and visitor friendly. Cindy was available when we needed to call her. A wind storm did shut down electricity in middle of night, but didn't last long. Perfect access to Joshua Tree NP. We had a great Easter weekend. No complaints, and highly recommend this home and owner if going to Joshua Tree for a few days.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rick for your nice comments. Sorry that the wind storm caused you to have a less than 5 star experience but I just haven't figured out yet how to control Mother Nature!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house located just outside the park. Beautiful views, comfortable bed, nice kitchen. Cindy has decorated and stocked it for maximum comfort and enjoyment. Plenty of dish and cookware, condiments, olive oil, etc. Easy access to the park and the town below. The whole experience was very user friendly and it really felt like a home, not a hotel. Worth noting: the long dirt road up to the house needs some work and is very rough in some spots, be prepared, it's slow going. Not the cheapest house for rent but you get what you pay for, and this spot was totally worth it.
