Joshua Tree house description

High above the village of Joshua Tree, only steps from Joshua Tree National Park. You will be mesmerized by the ever-changing play of sun and moon on the desert landscape.

Amenities include: Spacious great room with fireplace; Wi-Fi; flat screen TV with Roku, Pandora and Netflix for Internet music and movies; DVD player and collection of DVD classics. Open the twelve-foot window wall and experience the sights and sounds of the desert from inside the living area. The full size kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, new stainless appliances, a walk-in pantry, everything you need to prepare your gourmet meals, laundry facilities and a gas barbeque.

The master bedroom, in vintage Mexican décor, has a deluxe queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a sliding glass door onto the expansive covered patio. The master bathroom has a beautiful Talavera tiled vanity, walk-in shower and jetted tub to soothe those weary muscles after a day of hiking. Choose the Cowgirl room with its antique décor, two twin beds, ceiling fan, or enjoy the Cowboy room’s old Western décor, queen bed, ceiling fan, and sliding glass door onto the patio. The guest bathroom has a full shower and tub. All towels and linens are provided.

Luna Vista has central heating and air-conditioning, but the outside living areas will draw you outdoors - try the cowboy shower or a soak in a cowboy tub! There’s nothing better after a day of desert fun! And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience the meandering nature trail that will lead you around the 2.5-acre property. It may inspire you to continue hiking right into Joshua Tree National Park. Let us know in our wildlife log what creatures you encountered. With all this to see and do just outside your backdoor, you might never want to leave this magical place!

                            We stayed the weekend at Luna Vista with 6 adults and one small 2 year old. The house is perfect for couples and families with small kids. It is huge and has every single thing you'd need to enjoy your time away from the city. We walked the trails on the grounds every morning and enjoyed the outdoor heated shower overlooking the gorgeous desert. My in laws were very impressed with the organization and layout of the home. We didn't want to leave it is absolutely stunning and the rare rain we experienced over the weekend was only an added bonus. We used the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside. Thank you for sharing your home, we will definitely be back! It is very close to JT Park and has amazing views from every window. Cindy, the owner, is an absolute gem and so helpful. Bring a flashlight when you are driving up in the dark and stop at the Super Walmart on the way in. Have fun!

                            Owner response: Thank you Erin for all your nice comments. We are so very happy that you had such a great time at Luna Vista and were able to experience some of the unique beauty of the high desert! From our family to yours, please come again soon... Cindy

                            Beautiful house with great views set up high in the hills. Very clean and well equiped, there was everything we needed for a very relaxing week. Especially enjoyed the outside shower and large sliding doors that open the house up onto the patio. This place is close to perfect.

                            This place is wonderful! First, Cindy was very responsive to my request and made the process of booking very simple. When we arrived, the place was clean and cozy and we could settle right in. There are so many lovely little things outside- many seating areas; a fire pit; a cozy chaise lounge for two; a beautiful view and lots of privacy! Next time I'm bringing my girlfriends and I'm sure we will have another wonderful weekend!

                            I take my three kids here at least once a year. When we arrived last weekend, my teenager said, "OMG I'm so glad to be back in paradise." And then my kids started arguing over who got to take the first "cowboy shower" outside the next day (which was awesome because that meant I had no competition for the jacuzzi bathtub!). We LOVE this second home. Aside from the fact that the home is beautifully decorated, we LOVE the sliding glass window wall that opens and lets the desert right into the living room. It's amazing. (I want one at my house!) I had to do some work while we were there last weekend and it was the best office space I've ever had. My kids adore the nature trail and going out to look for wildlife. My 7-year old likes that he can go out and explore by himself and I like that I can see him from the patio. The home is at the top of a hill and has zero traffic that passes by it. But while it's super private, there are nice homes and friendly people neighboring the property. We feel safe here and I don't worry about letting my kids wander out of sight. Oh. Maybe I should mention how close it is to JT Nat Park? haha. We are National Park junkies. Luna Vista is really close to the park entrance... and to the cute main drag of downtown JT, for that matter. On Saturday, we took a scenic drive, watched climbers walk around on the top of huge rock formations, did some hiking, lunched at Natural Sisters cafe, hit the farmers market and bought some locally made goods, and still had time for an afternoon nap. Weekend perfection.

                            Owner response: Thank you Shane. We love that you and the kids love it there!!

                            We had an amazing time at Luna Vista and fell in love immediately! My favorite part is the nature trail around the property, the views and the outdoor shower... Also loved how everything was thought of... The kitchen and pantry are stocked, lots of games to play and DVDs to watch. And oh the never ending stars! We used the telescope and were able to see some of Jupiter's moons! Awesome! We can't wait to book a return trip... What an awesome place to escape to! Thank you for everything!

                          Owner info

                          Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
                          Our family has been coming to and loving the Mohave Desert for 4 generations. When our primitive cabin of over 50 years burned in 2007 in a wildfire in the Eastern Sierras we were devastated. But from the ashes came this new home in the high desert at Joshua Tree! We have found another place of peace and refuge right next to the spectacular Joshua Tree National Park. We fell in love with the abundance of flora and fauna, the unusual and awesome geology, the glorious sunrises and sunsets, the forever views of the ever-changing desert landscape, the dazzling night sky and, of course, the beautiful moonrises…

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...
