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.

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.....

Surrender to Joshua tree
Surrender to Joshua tree
My husband and I only had one weekend here, but it was heavenly, and we look forward to returning. The Amenities listed were completely on point: the comfortable self-contained darling cottage w/casita, the abundant wildlife, peace and quiet, the special hot tub, the endless stars, closeness to Joshua Tree Nat'l. Park... they are numerous and feel endless...we remember them all so well, and we always will. Even the photos are great but they do understate the reality; the decor being impeccable, tasteful and looks and feels new. In the guest book I expressed it in a haiku... Mighty Joshua, Tenderize My City Soul, Send Me Back Refreshed!

This home has the convenience of being close to town with the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere! It is cute and cozy and well stocked. We enjoyed building a fire and sitting outside after cooking dinner on the grill and the hot tub was absolutely amazing under the stars! Loved watching the birds and chipmunks feed on the birdseed! We also noticed large cat tracks through the yard after an overnight rain! Took in Joshua Tree National Park and drove out to Landers to check out the Integraton. We would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all.

We loved this place... private, clean, well appointed... couldn't ask for more! Next time... longer stay. In the yard there were jackrabbits, blue jays, quail and finches in abundance. (Watch out for the few loose cactus spines in the yard if you have young children with you.... I got one picking up a rock to secure the lounge cover in the dark...) We were out there watching the meteors thus use of yard lights were precluded. Next time I'll use a flashlight. :-)

Lovely cottage in the desert
Lovely cottage in the desert
Getting away to the desert is ideal in itself....but add onto that a stay in a very well equipped, clean and cozy cottage and you get rejuvenating combination. We are not new to renting on VRBO, but it was such a pleasant surprise to find this little cottage so full of thoughtful touches: rock collections, candles, nice LP collection, very well stocked kitchen and SO much beautiful natural light. Everywhere in the house is light (when you open the blinds). At night, lots of lamps that set a nice mood in the house. It's well furnished and was perfect for us two. Though I can see a family of 4 in it as well. Outside is nice, too. Well kept and private. The bird feeder attracts lots of birds and it can be a bit addicting to just sit there in the early morning, drinking coffee, watching the sunrise and witnessing the birds go to town on the food. The chiminea on the patio is so welcoming on the - brrrrr - cold mornings. The jacuzzi was such a treat after a long day out. It's so easy to sit in there and watch the sunset,The casita is so cute. I thought it was going to be a shed with laundry, but it's so cozy and works as a very functional 2nd bedroom (twin bed). I can't thing of one detraction, but there are a few things that are good to know... there is Wifi. It's not the fastest for work (who wants to work in this glorious place?!?) and does not seem recommended for streaming. I am a picky sleeper and should have brought my own pillows. We stayed in for a few days, enjoying the cottage and unwinding. Literally, the stresses melt down until you feel refreshingly relaxed. Deep breathing seems easier here! We then visited JT and also took the tram up the mountains (In Palm Springs). The tram trip is highly recommended - one can experience the desert and a beautiful forest in the same day! One night to the movies and another to Palm Desert for dinner. Lots to do in the surrounding areas. If you cannot tell by now, we are fans and thanks to Alisha and Lee for sharing their little peaceful slice of the desert. It's such a great value. kim & jeff costa mesa, ca

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.
