  • Desert Dessert

    "This Dome Home is a dream come true. We celebrated a pre wedding fete with some of our closest friends here over a long weekend & could not have had a more fun & relaxing time. You have to hike while you are here! The park is amazing & right in the back yard. We did not have to drive anywhere over the 4 days/3 much to do between swimming, sunning, hiking, lounging, bbq, sauna, spa, games, etc. None of us wanted to leave! Thank you for sharing your dream home!"

  • you need to go here

    "During the spring I went to the Ninja Ranch for a weekend escape with my girlfriends. We fell so in love with the house that we never left until check out. My favorite part of the home is the room with the small door (gotta see it to believe it) that has a skylight in the ceiling. The property is very quiet and has a lot of privacy. All modern amenities are available for your everyday needs. I cant wait to re-visit. If you need a nice get away where you can be at peace or just don't want to be near any neighbors, I totally recommend. And Chaz is an amazing property owner."

  • Desert Goodness.

    "This house was amazing. I'll get the negatives out of the way first. I had to dock it one star because the record player did not work properly. We're musicians and audiophiles and a big selling point on this place was the amazing LP collection and record player. Obviously we were pretty bummed when we couldn't get it to work. Luckily I carry around audio supplies like a weirdo and was able to hook up an 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter with 1/8 inch cable to make the Ipod Work. It would've been nice if an Ipod hookup was already there for people that just wanna listen to music on their devices. Also in the notes it tells you vaguely to maybe think about not using the shower in the master bedroom. It says it can get a bit "splashy." It should say "DO NOT EVER USE THE SHOWER ONLY TAKE BATHS" because we tried to use the shower and it immediately started flooding the place! If we didn't notice it right away the entire house probably would have filled with water! However the tub was amazing and the jacuzzi function worked just right. Ok on to the positives. This place has the most beautiful 360 degree desert and mountain views. There is awesome plant life all around you and you can walk around collecting beautiful stones that are littered all over the place. If you like Dwell magazine then you'll be happy with the aesthetics of this place. Very clean, kitschy, and minimal in a good way. Antique typewriters and vintage trinkets were a nice touch. The owner was kind enough to let us bring our Boston Terrier and she had a blast. Be careful of letting your pets wander as there are coyotes around. Also watch out for rattlesnakes! Outdoor area was great albeit pretty minimal with furniture. The fire pit was great as was the outdoor grill and big coffee table. A/C in every room which was great, although we couldn't figure out the ceiling fan in the master. Good kitchen with lots of stuff for cooking. Fireplace in the main room is super chill so make sure you buy plenty of firewood. Very quick drive to the national park and all the good stuff. The dirt road is pretty long and bumpy to get up to the house so an SUV is pretty optimal. Wifi worked well although it took some trial and error to figure out which wall switch operated it. Again I would've given this 5 stars but ya gotta fix that record player for us audio nerds! Also a sunbathing chair or 2 outside would help. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay here again."

  • Remarkable Desert Experience

    "Our stay at the Panorama Heights Desert House (1 week) was perfect for our first serious encounter with Joshua Tree, the park, and the surrounding area. In particular the house is ideally located -- near town, the park, Yucca Valley, and 29 Palms. It is located on a large, quite private lot with versatile, multipurpose outdoor facilities and enchanting, mature, natural landscaping. And excellent views to boot. You really know you are in the desert but can be comfortable outside any time of the day (we visited in March). The house itself is also well suited for vacationing. It is spacious, nicely furnished, and very tastefully decorated. This is not a luxury resort, but it does provide a "luxurious", comfortable, close-to-nature, and overall personable feeling. One minor inconvenience is that the second bathroom located away from the second bedroom."

Joshua Tree Travel Tips

Joshua Tree Vacation Rentals are a Breath of Fresh Air

Literally, it's a breath of fresh air. The smog-free air and near-perfect year-round weather of Joshua Tree attracts people from across the world; especially those who need an escape from the routine of everyday life. Rich with history and natural wonder, many people come to Joshua Tree Park's 800,000 acres to enjoy open space, clear skies, clean air, peace and the incredible beauty that only the desert can offer.

Joshua Tree Lodging Can Vary From the Beautiful to the Quaint

Just 120 miles from L.A. and 30 miles from Palm Springs, Joshua Tree is a short drive to an oasis of discovery. Joshua Tree vacation rentals, located in the town of Joshua Tree, are just minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park and include everything from the extremely modern to extremely rustic. California Desert vacation homes can be sublime.

There is Plenty to Do and See in the Desert

Joshua Tree National Park welcomes over a million visitors every year. There is rock climbing, hiking, biking, camping, bird watching, stargazing and exploring. Close by are hot springs, horseback riding, gambling, outlet stores, tram rides, and more. Hiking in the desert you may find old mining camps, historic homes built into the rocks, hidden oasis where Indians once settled. There is nothing like lying under the desert stars and being able to see the Milky Way.

Joshua Tree has a Rich History

In the 1800's, Mormon pioneers came across the Colorado River. It is said these pioneers named the tree after the prophet Joshua, seeing the Joshua tree limbs outstretched in supplication, guiding the travelers westward. Earlier, American Indians had left behind rock painting and pottery. Then came explorers, cattlemen and miners in search of gold. They too, left behind their remnants. In the 1930's homesteaders came seeking free land and a chance to start over.
