  • Perfect!

    "What a perfect getaway. I really love how thoughtfully decorated the house was. It really feels like a southwestern style home and not just a rental with a bunch of ikea furniture thrown in. The owner also makes the process easy and worry free."

  • Excellent stay

    "This casita is comfortable, clean, and well outfitted with basic needs and more. The location provides quiet, yet is close to shopping and the Joshua Tree park. The owners were friendly, helpful and interesting to chat with. We hope to return to this area to further explore. Would hope to also return to this casita...it suited us ."

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.
