Location + Surroundings
Perched at the edge of a wilderness corridor connecting Joshua Tree National Park to adjacent desert areas, the nearby lands are home to many native plants and wild animals. In the spring and fall, wildflowers and migratory birds are abundant. Countless stars can be seen in the wide night sky view. Guests can enjoy viewing but should avoid disturbing the fragile plants and wildlife that live in this natural desert wonderland.
The rental is a late 20th-century California ranch home with a passive solar design, updated with an off-grid, solar-powered electrical system, modern appliances, and eco-friendly interior finishes. Guests' vacation in Joshua Tree is a perfect opportunity to unplug but the hosts do offer Wi-Fi amenities to stay connected. Featuring three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this is an ideal sanctuary for romantic couples, families, and small groups.
A common room spans a large eat-in kitchen with a gas cooking stove and a separate living room with a convertible full-size sofa/futon. Modern heating, cooling, and ventilation conditions the interior space year-round.
Outside, the front porch area has 270-degree views of rugged mountain lands. The rock-sheltered backyard features terraced patio areas, a secluded wood-fired cowboy tub, and private access to miles of private trails and wild-lands. Read More

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. The Joshua Tree National Park combines two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado. The park offers a fascinating variety of plants and animals that live in a land sculpted by strong winds and occasional torrents of rain. Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features make this a wonder of Southern California, and beyond. The Visitor Center is well worth a visit. There are plenty of exhibits and information, and the employees are very helpful. There are also plenty of day tours, including hikes, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
