Beautiful Bungalow in the Desert
"Great bungalow in the desert. We were visiting Joshua Tree Park and stayed at the bungalow for a couple of days. It was very convenient and a short drive to get to the park. In addition the the most perfect accommodations, all the communications and transaction with the owner went smoothly and without and problems. The bungalow was clean and provided all the items we could need for out stay. Highly recommend this bungalow."

"Skylark was exactly what we were hoping for. It's even more beautiful in person. Spacious, tastefully appointed, and with Stunning views of the landscape. It was the perfect base camp for our Joshua Tree exploration. Definitely recommend!"

"This was my first time in the desert, and this was a great place to stay. The AC quickly cooled the place down and kept it comfortable even with 100+ F weather outside (though the upstairs bedroom took a bit longer to cool down, as all the heat rose up there).
The hottub was nice and big, seven people fit in it no problem. Though a bit deep for some of our shorter guests.
The beds are all very comfortable, and if you have a large group they provide an air mattress which was pretty comfortable as far as air mattresses go.
The house is very far from other houses, so it felt nice and private and we didn't have to worry about bothering neighbors (or being bothered).
It's super close to the Joshua Tree national park itself...in fact I think it's quicker to get to the park than it is to go back into town where food / groceries / etc are.
My only real complaint would be the hammock -- it was just not comfortable. It needed to be about twice as big I think. Here's a picture of me attempting to use it:

Not a huge loss, there is tons of comfortable outdoor seating to sit in and stare up at the stars at night. It was just an average night, no meteor showers that I know of, yet it was so dark I probably saw about 5 shooting stars in about an hour.
Overall a great stay, we visited both Joshua Tree National Park (5 minutes from the house) and Kelso Dunes (2 hours north/east from the house) and had an amazing time!"

"Good place to go and decompress away from the city. Very close to the West entrance to the park and the central area of the town. The house itself is nicely equipped, with everything you need for a good stay in the area. Only 2 minor gripes:
1. this is a pretty pricey rental - would it be possible to clean up the construction junk sitting behind the house and by the front parking spot?
2. the weirdest design for the wi-fi - the router is actually outside and controlled by an unmarked wall switch. not sure why you'd want something like that...
Other than that, we had a very good time. This was our first visit to the area and we will be back climbing those rocks!"
