Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are filmmakers, musicians...a creative couple who bought this place as a way to rejuvenate and escape the stresses of the city.

Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
Gorgeous remote park like setting. Peace and quiet. Hit the reset button and renew. We also have a sister cabin to this property 1/3 of the mile down the road called Billy Goat Gruff. VRBO#619000. These make great properties for a retreat or a family reunion.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
you can get away from it all here--- in the winter we enjoy a roaring fire in the woodburning stove---early mornings as the sun rises---nights on the observation deck counting shooting stars. Our koi pond makes this an excellent spot for bird watching....owls, hawks, humming birds and a family of quail.
