Moroccan Mojave Getaway is a relaxing retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The steep access road to the property gets your attention, but also adds to the adventurous location, perched high above Joshua Tree. Great views both day and night, and a cozy cabin. Kitchen is well-appointed, and cold nights were no problem with the wood-burning stove. We drove into the national park one day (only a few minutes to the entrance, and hiked in directly from the cabin on another day. The place was affordable, convenient and enjoyable in every aspect, and Byrnadette took care of the business end with aplomb. Stay here, you'll like it!

We had an amazing, relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure staying at this clean, serene Moroccan hideaway. The first thing I noticed were the beautiful sweeping views of the Desert! Truly breathtaking! Very quiet and relaxing, we were able to work and meditate and hike all weekend! Only a 5 minute drive from the Joshua Tree Saloon, we were able to enjoy our nights as well! Byrnadette was very easy to work with and her assistant Jess was very helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a quiet, relaxing, romantic time in the desert!

Magical Moroccan Mojave

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we left the rest of the world behind and instantly fell in love with this place. The main house which we stayed in, was inviting and very comfortable. It's more beautiful in person than the photos. It's sits on a hill with expansive views of the area which made for epic sunrises. The kitchen is fully stocked, we cooked all of our meals in. I don't think JT is known for its fine cuisine so we really appreciated the great kitchen. The driveway is steep but we made it and don't have an SUV. The park is only 1 mile away, another plus.

We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay and will definitely go back. As far as reaching the owner and getting our deposit back, it all went swimmingly. Thanks and we can't wait to go back!

Wonderful, cozy, and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The Getaway was perfect! Very quiet and private, amazing views and an easy drive to town. We happened to stay during a very cold weekend but the fire (thank you for the wood) and space heaters kept the house very warm and cozy. We didn't need a thing during our stay but Byrnadette was very easy to get in touch with. Thanks so much for sharing your great getaway!

wonderful place

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with some friends in April. The place is decorated beautifully, spacious, very serene and lovely, with a great view and a well-stocked kitchen for cooking (equipment-wise). It's quiet, close to the park and have a very peaceful patio.

The note about the dirt road is not to be ignored -- you really have to have an SUV to be able to drive up to this house.

My only complaint about this house is that the owner was very, very difficult to get a hold of to confirm information, get key retrieval information, and return our security deposit. Ultimately she always came through, but not without multiple phone calls and emails on every round of communication. But if you can stick it out through that, this is a lovely place for a weekend getaway.

desert dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

Moroccan Mojave Getaway was the perfect desert dream vacation.

I surprised my husband by organizing this vacation rental and we could not

have had a more perfect introduction to the desert.

The getaway is located very near to Joshua Tree Park and also near to town but

you'll feel like you're thousands of miles away in an exotic land of beauty and

solitude.

The furnishings and environment are magical, comfortable and spacious and we

look forward to our next visit.
