Joshua Tree house description

This property is in a fantastic area close to the west entrance of the National Park. Seriously... the drive is 12 minutes from the door to the West Entrance of the park, a lot of places claim this but really aren't that close. The house originated as a 50's homestead cabin and has been remodeled by the Palm Springs Architectural firm O2 Architecture. It is a very special space with great architectural details.

The house is spacious with a great flow, yet very cozy. There is a lot of glass with incredible views in every direction. The house is on 5 acres loaded with natural flora and fauna. You don't have to leave the property to feel like you've gotten away from everything. Feel the desert, drink in the night sky, cook a killer meal and enjoy you're stay!

                        The description and photos of the house actually underestimate how epically gorgeous this house is. Modern, clean and classic, Johns place is a must see if wanting to get away in Joshua Tree. You are a short drive from the national park as well. Highly recommend this home. Thanks again John!

                        Our family had a lovely time here. The chance to spend a few days living 1950s California style was wonderful - the house was relaxing with wonderful views of the desert and amazing but simple decor. The kitchen was perfect - had everything we needed to cook a few meals. We also made fires in the fire pit each night and watched the stars come out. Jackrabbits and quail were spotted in the neighborhood. We really loved the chance to be here for a few days - a much better choice than a hotel. It was very close to the national park and we also had a great day of scrambling and hiking there. It might not be perfect for families with little kids, but our 3 preteens loved it! What a gorgeous retreat which allowed this East Coast family fall in love with the desert!

                        We loved the house so much we were ready to buy it:) The family that owns the house is lovely and so easy to work with! The views are amazing and it looks just like the pictures. And its only a few minutes form the National Park entrance.... We will be going back!

                        The location of this house was great - such a lovely spot. Our three young children really enjoyed the outdoor space and the fire pit at night. The house itself was comfortable and the layout was nice. A few details were lacking (e.g., no dish soap and sponge in the kitchen, incomplete towel sets in the bathroom, laundry still drying upon arrival) but overall, our stay was pleasant and we had a good time. Thanks!

                        It's a great house for a casual trip to Joshua Tree. Super clean, great design, filled with pretty much everything you need. And unlike any other vacation rental I've ever stayed at, this house comes with a stellar collection of hundreds of classic albums on vinyl. There should be a new search filter/category on VRBO for "vintage record collection."

                        Great place, super clean, comfy beds, pillows and a very well-equipped kitchen. Perfect spot if you don't want to camp while visiting Joshua Tree. A great place to come back to chill after hiking. And if you're into music, the owner's extensive collection of great old LP's is there for you. In addition to the many interesting books that are in every room. We'll go back!
