Joshua Tree house description

Quail Crossing is our fabulous vacation home in Joshua Tree. Tucked away in the Bartlett Mountains and worlds away from the busy life and bright lights of the city - it is truly a place where peace can be found. This open and spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath home sits on 5 undisturbed acres, which border endless miles of pristine protected BLM (Bureau of Land Mgmt) land. You can hikes for miles just heading out our front door!

This house perfect for large groups, families with children, or couples wanting seclusion. Newly built, the home offers a modern kitchen, upscale furnishings, indoor Jacuzzi tub, flat screen TV with satellite, DVD player with extensive film library, iPod stereo dock, fabulous gas Weber grill, full outdoor play set for children, 2 queen size beds, and two sets of bunk beds. This home will sleep up to 8 max.

Quail Crossing is the last house on a dead end road connecting to hundreds of preserved acres serving as your backyard playground. Magnificent views of Joshua Tree National Park can be seen from the large living room slider and is just an 8 mile drive from the house. Wake up to an amazing sunrise with quail and cottontails playing outside your bedroom window, then take your pick from the multitude of outdoor seating and hammocks and enjoy the silence as you watch for the hundreds of other animals- jackrabbits, lizards, antelope squirrels, coyotes, desert tortoises, hawks, bobcat and more- that thrive in this protected area. A wonderful sunset while enjoying the warmth of the outdoor fire-place and then the bats come out to play, followed by a sweeping night sky full of shooting stars.

Complimentary whole bean coffee and various condiments are always available. Sorry, absolutely no pets are allowed (even the most well behaved) as the owners have severe allergies.

You’ll find excellent cell phone reception. The house, purposely designed to take advantage of its setting, is cooled by evaporative cooler and air conditioning units in the summer months. And keep in mind, we are always 15 degrees cooler than Palm Springs and 10 degrees cooler than Joshua Tree Park, making this destination perfect year round.

                          Quail Crossing is wonderfully secluded on a dead-end road tucked high into the Bartlett Mountains looking down on the village of Joshua Tree and the Joshua Tree National Park. On 3 sides we are bordered by pristine, undeveloped government land where you are welcome to hike, off-road ATV and even hunt during hunting seasons.


                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About: We are a family of 5 and Los Angeles locals in the film business. This is our fabulous vacation home! We take tremendous pride in it and use it often. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

                          Why Joshua Tree:
                          Joshua Tree is only 2 hours from Los Angeles and one of the more special places in America. Finding a property like ours was a dream come true!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The views and land will take your breath away. The 'sound' of pure silence will relax you completely, especially those of us who are city-dwellers. We are so secluded that at night there is no light interference and you will see millions of stars, including the entire Milky Way!!!
