Recent Joshua Tree reviews
"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!"

Perfect retreat for relaxation and experiencing the wonders of Joshua Tree National Park
"What a wonderful stay! The home was quiet, cozy, and very special. Far exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed just sitting outside beside the lovely cactus garden, reading, watching the numerous birds (hummingbirds, quail, roadrunners) and also taking day trips into the park. It was a long way to come from Canada but it was well worth a week-long stop along our road trip."

"My wife, son and I stayed at Sunset Terrace recently. This is a great location and a truly warm and inviting home. As other reviewers have noted the house is very close to the Joshua Tree park entrance. Very nice at the end of a long day of hiking and climbing! The home its self is very inviting. Stocked with all the basics you'll need to prepare a meal and have a nice relaxing night in. One thing I found helpful was the high walls when grilling. The desert can be very windy and keeping a gas grill lit can be quite the challenge in high wind gusts. No trouble at all here. The living room and kitchen are both spacious while feeling cozy and inviting. We immediately felt at home and would certainly recommend a stay at this location to our own friends and family."

"Weird and wonderful. Like a museum of invention inside. Comfortable - plenty of living space. Very workable kitchen and adequately stocked with pots, pans etc. 1 very nice master bedroom. The other 2 are small but the loft is bright and airy and sleeps 3. Can be a treacherous climb though in the middle of the night for relief. Bottom line: see ally enjoyed our stay."
