  • A Great Stay at this Home!

    "Our student group from the University of California Irvine is very grateful to have been able to stay at this home during our Joshua Tree Park study. There was plenty of room to accommodate us, and we felt welcome and very comfortable throughout our stay. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great and relaxing experience!"

  • Even Better Than the Pictures!

    "My friends and I recently stayed here for the weekend. We were more than happy with everything! Even when booking, coordinating the reservation with Marcus was very easy. He was very friendly and always quick to respond. The house is on a great plot of land that's very secluded. The views from anywhere on the property are gorgeous. There is a ton of furniture and many places for people to sleep...not to mention it's very stylishly decorated. There is the main house and studio/guest house area. Both have TVs and are furnished but we spent most of our time outside. The pool was a little chilly but that's definitely not a problem in the desert heat. In the evening, we BBQ-ed outside and ate at the large dining room table. Afterwards, we would go outside to enjoy the gorgeous view of the stars. If you want a true Joshua Tree experience, this is the place for you. It's also priced at a stellar rate. Thank you for such a fun weekend! We will definitely be back!"

  • Work saving experience

    "What a wonderful long weekend! I'd been having writers block & struggling with a script for months in L.A. but 3 days in this lovely house in the most gorgeous landscape imaginable was exactly what I needed to get my work finished. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

  • 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."

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.
