Recent Joshua Tree reviews
Comfortable, pleasant, interesting
"We came from Connecticut to explore Death Valley and Joshua Tree. LOVED JT. Such an amazing spot in the world.
It was great to stay so close to the park. This cozy cottage is just as described, with a comfortable and relaxed ambiance. Big patio for sitting outside and watching the sun rise or set. We enjoyed the interesting yard--and the yard of the Harrison House Art & Music Center across the street. (We read up on Lou Harrison once we figured out the connection--which made the whole place feel more intimate and interesting.)
Couple of downsides: The refrigerator was not cold; we froze bottles of water and put them in the fridge. We could have called the caretaker, but didn't want to take the time and left a note instead. Had to search around for the washer/dryer (in garage). And the place could benefit from a Welcome book, as someone else stated.
But overall, a wonderful, memorable stay. We stayed 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer."

"We loved your property and how great you were to us. We originally were coming for 3 nights but found ourselves there a night early with a 17 month old baby and no properties in town allowing dogs. It was 11:00 at night and thought we would just check and see if property was vacant, since we were going to be checking in next afternoon. It was vacant and cleaned and we were so relieved as the baby was having meltdown. I contacted them via email and the got back to us quickly, they also let us pay the next day which was very kind. We were very appreciative and the property is beautiful and quiet. Thank you again so much for a great stay."

"The location of this property is unforgettable. You are surrounded by massive boulders, beautiful landscaping, and big skies. We travelled from KY with two children (8 and 9), and their grandparents who are in their 50's. My fiancé and I are in our early 30's and there was something for everyone to do. We soaked in the hot tub, swam in the pool, explored the gardens and native creatures, climbed on the boulders, travelled to Joshua Tree Nat'l Park, Yucca Valley, and even Universal Studios. The home is well cared for and has everything one would require for an enjoyable vacation. The only recommendation I would make to the owner would be to supply some space (empty drawers) for unpacking and perhaps some visitor center type books relevant to the area. Again, this is a very minor detail and truly did not effect the amount of joy we got from this property/owner, nor the amount of fun we had on this vacation. I cannot stress enough the beauty of the surroundings and would bet that any other rental in the Joshua Tree area would place a distant 2nd when compared with this property. The owner is also very considerate. He went above and beyond and did not hesitate to answer any calls or requests, even heating the pool to a higher temperature than normal so the kiddos wouldn't be chilly. If you are considering staying here, book it now! You won't regret it!
Dale, Thank you for sharing your bit of paradise with us. It is obvious that you care for this place immensely and it was a pleasure to meet you and stay in this home. Hopefully we can come back again!

"Ninja Ranch was perfect for our spring break vacation. We have been coming to Joshua Tree for a couple years and love the opportunity to "dry up" from our Oregon winters. Ninja Ranch was immaculate, outfitted with all utensils, towels, bedding, wi-fi, etc. needed. The outdoor spaces are fantastic - always a sunny side, shady side, and lee side!. Chaz was good with local recommendations for food and sightseeing, and responsive. The best parts: Being able to walk through the "backdoor" of the park for hiking and bouldering right from the house. Thank you for a great vacation spot!"
