Description of Glamping Units

Just outside of Joshua Tree, California, this unique desert rental has a little bit of southwest flair. The rental can accommodate five guests and features an oversize bedroom with a queen-size bed and lots of drawer space so suitcases can be stowed away out of sight.

The wild, rustic outdoor landscape belies the style, luxury and comfort within this adobe-style casita with high ceilings. With its full kitchen, plush furnishings, and 200-square-foot screened and tile-roofed porch, guests will want for nothing during their stay, no matter what the season.

The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, milk, and sweeteners. Glampers will also find an assortment of condiments and spices. In addition, there are dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, mixing bowls, cooking and baking utensils, a coffeemaker, a toaster, a microwave, a refrigerator and freezer, and a range/oven.

Outside, this luxury desert rental has its own barbecue and screened-in sleeping porch with a sitting area and table. It's a great place to dine on balmy evenings or watch wildlife at dawn. Read More

    This luxurious southwest-style casita is located on 22 acres in the undiscovered "Pipes Canyon" near Joshua Tree National Park and bordering 33,000 acres of Wildlands Preserve. It is set amid jaw-dropping beauty, surrounded by lush vegetation, flat-topped mesas, extinct volcanoes, and giant boulder formations. At 4,400 feet elevation, nestled at the foot of the Big Bear Mountains, the peace and quiet are unparalleled, and the secluded property teems with wildlife. The 22 acres of property is surrounded by a gorgeous panorama of the natural wonders of the California desert. Just two hours outside of Los Angeles guests will find themselves in a totally secluded desert oasis. Just a five-minute drive and glampers will hit a former pioneer town where they can hear some live music and enjoy some country cooking at Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace. Read More

    The best part of this site is definitely its location. Guests will be right in the middle of the most pristine, untouched natural viewpoints imaginable. Scope out the desert wildlife and enjoy the feeling of total solitude and connection with nature. It’s only a short drive to some incredible hiking spots and trails for guests who want a little bit more physical action. Guests can also enjoy the secluded wildlife reserve close by. Visitors come from around the world to view the dark, starry skies in this part of the California desert. The Milky Way is on display almost every night. Guests can have a telescope delivered to the door for optimal stargazing. Historic Pioneertown, only a five-minute drive (where cowboy movies and TV shows were shot in the 40s and 50s) is still a great destination, with a stunt show shoot-out every Saturday at 2 p.m. and great food and world-class live music at Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace. Enjoy the healing benefits of a "sound bath" at the one-and-only Integretron a short ride away. On site, guests can play a game of bocce ball on the brand new bowling court or go “mining for stardust” in the Rockhound Wash.
