Joshua Tree apartment description

'The Cactus Patch' is a second story full apartment over our garage. 1 Bedroom with queen-size bed, a full kitchen with stove, oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, and coffee-maker. Living room has 2 futons that fold out to double beds, flat-screen TV, Dish network, and WiFi. There is a half bath, and downstairs is a full bath with tub/shower as well as a washer and dryer. Central heat to keep you warm in the winter and Air Conditioning to keep you cool in the Summer. There is an outside deck that is perfect for watching the sunrise with your morning coffee. You can also sleep under the stars on the deck if you wish.
We share the front yard which is the perfect spot to enjoy the gorgeous Sunsets.
You will have covered parking for you car, truck, or bike.
We are on 10 acres 1/2 mile up a dirt road off of Hwy 62, and 1/2 mile below JTNP land, which means Great Views and not too many neighbors.
We allow small pets, and smoking is only allowed outside.
We have extensive knowledge of the area and would be glad to help you plan your days, but if privacy is what you want, then privacy is what you will get.
We are pet-friendly, biker-friendly, hiker-friendly, rockclimber-friendly, people-friendly and would love to have you stay at this true 'home away from home'.
Some extras that we offer are:
We will do your grocery shopping for you and have it in the apartment when you arrive (for a 10 dollar fee) if you don't feel like spending a minute of your vacation grocery shopping.
And if you don't want to cook, but would like a 'dinner at home', we will cook dinner for you (priced from 20 to 40 dollars per person).
Thank you for considering 'The Cactus Patch'.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Most people come to Joshua Tree to visit Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), we also have murals and museums in 29 Palms, The Integratron www.integratron.com and Gubler's orchids www.gublers.com in Landers, Wildlife Sanctuary www.bigmorongo.org in Morongo Valley, Arts and Crafts galore in Joshua Tree, and museums and shopping in Yucca Valley.

                  JTNP www.nps.gov/jotr and www.joshuatree.org has hiking trails, rocks to climb, flora and fauna to view, and sights to see. There is a visitor center in Joshua Tree, and it is the west entrance to the Park.

                  Palm Springs is less than an hour away and is a mecca for food, shopping, spas, and sunning. The aerial tram in Palm Springs takes you one mile up Mount San Jacinto into a whole different world, 40 degrees cooler and lush trees and bushes, with snow in the winter.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are 'Desert Rats' at heart. We have lived in the desert most of our lives, and love this area. We love to travel and see other places, but we always come home to the desert.

                  Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
                  The reason we love this property is the amazing views. We are high enough up to see across the valley to Sunfair, and to have JTNP lands 1/2 mile behind us. The Stars, Sunrises, and Sunsets are unbelievably beautiful. Being on 10 acres, we have privacy and room to breathe.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Beauty 360 degrees around!
