Recent Joshua Tree reviews

  • 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."

  • Great little cottage

    "Booked the cottage a week out for an impromptu trip to the desert. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating. Great communication, great price, great location. I would stay here again over a hotel in a heartbeat. There were just 2 of us, but we could have easily brought our two kids and had more than enough room. I only wish we could have stayed a little longer."

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.
