Joshua Tree cottage description

Our home offers the best of both worlds. Located just under 1 mile to Joshua Tree Village restaurants and shops and 6 miles to the Park entrance we are close to all that Joshua Tree has to offer, but our property is situated on 5 quiet, private acres that offer serenity, amazing views, and the best of the desert landscape and wildlife. We were regular guests at this home and loved it so much we bought it!
Efforts have been made to to insure our home and property offer a stylish, zen retreat for guests visiting the Joshua Tree area.

Inside our one bedroom, one bath home you will find a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and all you need to cook and set your table. A cozy wood burning stove is located in the open living room/dining room, but our home also has heat and air conditioning to insure your stay is most comfortable year round. In the living room you will find a couch that folds out to accommodate 2, wifi, flat screen tv with DirecTV programming, dvd player, and movies. For the music lovers we have a sound system that includes an ipod hook up, cd player, and the special touch of a turn table with 40 + records. We keep a guitar on hand as well in case you want to play your own music!
The bedroom offers beautiful views and a queen bed. We also have a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Outdoor amenities include a cozy chimney, 5 person hot tub with a full body lounger jet massage, propane grill, and outdoor seating including a double chaise lounge that is perfect for outdoor napping or sleeping under the stars. Joshua Trees surround our property, and the views are stunning. We have a bird feeder that attracts much wildlife, and regular visitors to our property include coyote, quail, jackrabbits, and road runners.

Our home is the perfect spot for nature lovers, writers and artists seeking solitude and inspiration, and couples seeking a romantic get away.

                            Our family went up for the weekend. Great place. Very quiet and relaxing. Close to JT National Park. We'll be back for sure.

                            We had a great stay at this house. It is stocked with everything you need, is located very close to the entrance to the park. It is also just down the street from some shops, cafes and on Saturday you can walk up to the farmer's market. Everything was clean and comfortable. Also, great record collection!

                            Had a wonderful time. Peaceful. The sky is amazing. This little house has the best energy! The wild life, the hot tub, the attention to detail the property owners have taken only makes this little gem more amazing.

                            I decided on a last minute get away and was lucky to have found Sunset Cottage. Alisha was wonderful to deal with. The cottage was immaculate when I arrived. The kitchen was newly updated and had everything I needed. The fire places both inside and out lit easily and added to the cozy feel. While you can see a few neighbor houses way off in the distance you cannot hear anything from them. Sitting on the double chaise lounge looking at the AMAZING stars surrounded by quiet was simply amazing. I also recommend taking a "sound bath" at The Integratron a few miles away. It is a spectacular experience!

                            My husband and I live in San Francisco and planned a getaway to Sunset Cottage for a week. It was exactly what we needed to escape the craziness of the city. We enjoyed stargazing from the hot tub and bird watching during the day. Joshua Tree National Park is in close proximity and we visited three times for hiking and sightseeing. Alisha was responsive with all email inquiries and very helpful throughout the process. We enjoyed exploring a new part of California while feeling at "home"

                            This is a great place for observing wildlife, with a nice patio overlooking the wash. Within a few minutes of arriving a covey of 9 quail waltzed over, with the leader perched in a bush down in the wash. By the time we left three days later there were 20 quail just 15 feet away from our patio seats. Two jays, a couple-three doves, and numerous finch were there every day as well. A hawk was in the neighborhood on the first day and a roadrunner made a brief appearance. We also saw a few pica, jackrabbits and in the middle of the night heard owl(s) and coyote(s).

                            I stayed here to enjoy the meteor shower and was not disappointed, the skies were amazing at night and it's dark enough to actually see the band of the Milky Way on clear nights. The house was beautiful and very clean, we enjoyed the decor from the owner, very tastefully done with pictures of the area throughout. Lots of wildlife nearby including the bluejays that will come bark at you until you give them their peanuts. Overall it was a great stay and I would definitely come again.

                            Stayed for 2 mos in sunset cottage...remarkable! Cold winter evenings in the hot tub are paradise. Want for nothing in the house. No neighbors! walk into "town". THE PARK IS OTHER-WORLDLY. Would return here in a heartbeat. Many great, lasting memories made here. Alisha has everything covered!

                            We stayed at the property for two nights and thought it was just great. Well-equipped, clean, even nicer than photos, which did not do justice to inside of house. Very private space. Outside accommodations were lovely, but unfortunately for us, it was over 100 degrees the day we arrived and the patio, etc. did not call to us. But the house cooled off really nicely. Following day with a breeze and slight drop in temperature, we were able to take in the wonders of the park, which is literally just down the street from this sweet abode.....

                          About the owner: My husband and I are frequent travelers who love music, books, film, wine, and the great outdoors. We travel to our favorite spot- Joshua Tree- as often as we can.

                          Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
                          Before buying this home we were regular guests ourselves. We loved the home and property so much that we bought it! We find it to be the ideal spot in Joshua Tree- close to everything while being in a quiet, private spot surrounded with beauty and wildlife.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Location & Views! Our home is situated less than one mile from Joshua Tree Village and 6 miles to the Park Entrance but on 5 quiet, private acres. The views of the surrounding mountains and foothills are gorgeous, the wildlife is abundant, and there is nothing better than relaxing in the hot tub watching the sunset over the mountains. There are hiking trails all along the foothills by our home that offer stunning views and ultimate seclusion.
