Joshua Tree cabin description

Located DIRECTLY on the border of Joshua Tree National Park, Think Tank is a one minute hike onto parkland, a one mile walk or drive to the formal West park entrance, and four miles to downtown Joshua Tree. Think Tank is distinct in that it's surrounded on three sides by huge undeveloped parcels of pristine desert, and the nearest visible structure is almost a quarter of a mile away: yet it's easily accessed by car and in the secure Monument Manor area at the threshold of the park. The understated rustic exterior blends seamlessly with the landscape while the interior sports polished concrete floors and Jenn Air appliances, and an ultra comfy queen bed. This 100% solar property sits at the base of Quail Mountain and offers seclusion, excellent wildlife sightings, and dark night skies. Guests share the gated 5 acres with tortoises, coyotes, bobcats, hawks, eagle, quail, jackrabbits, seasonal wildflowers, and more. Amenities include WiFi, air conditioning, gas heat and cable TV, on demand hot water, glass shower, laundry, chef grade cookware, large stone fire pit, drum and Weber BBQs, outdoor platform bed, remote control security shutters, ranch style wood fired outdoor soaking tub, and critter pond. Intimate and romantic, this home is suited for one person or a couple but not for larger groups. If you're looking for more than a month of bliss, please inquire about the sliding rate scale!
So sorry, but we no longer accept pets.

                              About the owner: As a set designer, I'm in love with the visual drama of the California high desert.As a set designer, I'm in love with the visual drama of the California high desert. I was so excited when I found this five acres of Mojave bliss....I couldn't wait to start working with the palette of homestead architecture, native plants, seasons, and vistas that Joshua Tree. My hope is that the resulting home reflects the unassuming laid-back lifestyle that I value but sometimes find difficult to enjoy in LA, while also reflecting a respect for nature, warmth, a bit of humor, and relaxation with the necessary flourishes (good art, good books, WiFi and tubing under the stars!). Think Tank is new to VRBO, but for reviews on my hosting please check out my feedback at 'Joshua Tree Getaway, VRBO#111014'.

                              Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
                              After buying my first vacation home in Joshua Tree and many fabulous experiences hosting guests, I found that my first house had grown in popularity...to the point that I was unable to stay myself! So I began scouring the MLS and local rumor mill for an additional property, something really special, something that had to at least match my first getaway. When Think Tank popped onto the market, I knew that it was priceless. Secluded, on the park, 100% state-of-the-art solar, gas appliances. It's my 'forever' spot.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              Being in a house on the border of a wilderness area is a powerful reminder of many things. I love this house for helping me to remember how many stars there are in a night dark sky, what the sound of quiet feels like, and how to gauge the passing of hours by the movement of light and color across a rock mountain outside the window.
