Recent Joshua Tree property reviews

  • Wonderful location

    "We had a great time in your home and backyard. Took advantage of the jacuzzi, grill, and firepit and took your suggested walk for dogs - minus the dog:) Very nice to return to this home after a day's adventure in the park."

  • Dogs love this place

    "This was our second time staying at the True World Bungalow. We enjoy hiking with our dogs. Bonnie and George have been very helpful in suggesting sites where we could take the dogs off lead. Brody (resident dog) is very welcoming to visitors both human and canine. The bungalow is in a rural area with dirt roads to explore and get away from the crowds, especially for those with 4WD. The yard is fenced, however, for just relaxing at the bungalow. The bungalow was very creatively designed, decorated, and maintained. A beautiful spot to spend quiet, private time."

  • The perfect Joshua Tree retreat

    "We have stayed at Quail Mountain House several times over the years, and always return to Los Angeles feeling refreshed and rejeuvenated even if it's just been a short trip. This house is an extremely special place, thoughtfully designed and furnished to be a balance of modern and cozy. A highlight of staying here is waking up in either of the bedrooms to an incredible view of the mountain. When the sun is rising, the color of the light cast on the rocks is one of the most beautiful things you can experience. For people who like to cook, the kitchen is extremely well equiped, with a good gas stove, and lots of counter space. It's a short drive to town to get essentials at the health food store (including some fresh produce and organic wines), or to the farmers market which takes place in the same parking lot on Saturdays. There is a wonderful collection of books, fiction and non-fiction, CDs and DVDs, and wood burning fireplace, if you bring firewood. I often end up reading a new book from the collection from cover to cover while staying there. Another major highlight is the close access to hiking trails from a short drive up towards the mountain. There are some marked trails that lead into the park from a point close by. As long as you take water and have a good sense of direction, you can figure out incredible walks into the mountains that get you back to where you've parked. It takes a bit of experimenting, and you need to be extremely mindful of the route you take, but it's incredible to be hiking on trails where you don't run into anyone else. This is type of place where you can really get into a meditative state and leave the world behind. It is a perfect place for writers or creative people that are looking for a retreat, as well as great place for a short getaway."

  • Desert Bungalow-a retro delight

    "This is my second year coming to this particular unit. I love this bungalow! The value for the money is amazing. It has an open floor plan and is quite spacious! It has loads of charm and it is in excellent condition, clean and well maintained. I would most definately recommen this place to a friend or relative. It's within walking distance to the hippest part of JT, where several restaurants are located. The owner is trustworthy, and timely in all of his communications. He is a pleasure to do buisness with. The photos are accurate, and the place is even more charming in person!"

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.
