Joshua Tree house description

The Desert Shadow Cabin is a 2 bedroom 1 bath mid century house with great light, views and of course a few shadows. It is located 5 miles from the center of town and sits on 2.5 acres of desert to let you soak in the desert vibe. The house is tastefully furnished with vintage and modern furnishings, local and not so local art. The living room floor is stained and polished concrete, with laminate floors in the bedrooms and tile in the bath and kitchen. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped for your cooking pleasure. The heating/ac system and insulation are modern and keep the the place quite comfy regardless of the climate.

This is a great place to hang out and decompress from the stresses of city life. During the day, you have views of the park in the distance, surrounding mountains and desert landscape. The stars at night are nothing short of amazing. The silence punctuated by the howling of coyotes will give you a true desert experience - no TV or internet in the house to distract you from the environment. However, if you have to get some directions, reviews, Facebook, YouTube, Tweets and most mobile services work fine for most carriers so your iPhone or Android won't feel neglected.

If you crave some added stimulation, the Noah Purifoy outdoor museum is just a hop and skip away, the Village is 5 miles away with only 1 mile on an authentic desert dirt road. While in the Village you can take a yoga class, have some home cooked natural food, go to the Saloon have a few beers and do some karaoke, shop for interesting vintage artifacts at the local thrift shops and galleries, take a local hike in the Coyote Hole (a local hiking trail runs through the rocks and canyons in the center of town where you can see ancient Indian petroglyphs and local wildlife and plants) or just do some people watching. Of course the main attraction is the Joshua Tree National Monument which is just 5 minutes up the road from the Village.

Desert Shadow offers the perfect blend of real desert ambiance, civilized interior space and proximity to the Park and the Village. Who says you can't have it all? Just book it and find out for yourself.
