Rock Climbers dream.
"Our group had a wonderful time staying at the Dome House. Well appointed kitchen and nice Bar B Que. Clean bathrooms and plenty of space to relax. The views are breathtaking, just what you go to the desert for. Close to the Park & Town. We plan to come back annually."

"We loved staying at Shangri-la. The desert views are incredible. Photo shoot heaven. We had fun playing ping-pong, swinging, and cooling off in the cattle tank cold plunge. Outdoor shower was a treat too. Great place. The living room is a bit hard to cool somehow, the bedroom gets all the cool air. The convertible sofa is not very comfortable for sleeping, but a good sofa for sitting--and of course very mid-century stylish. Otherwise all good, lovely place. Drew is great with the communication and local suggestions!"

Ideal base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and beyond...
"Wonderful place to spend a few days for my wife and I. The view of the desert stretching out in front of us coupled with the welcoming and comfortable property made our stay spot-on. The big bed, the hot tub, the wildlife, the porch out the front and the stars above us at night were just some of the highlights. It would be a long way for us to return from the UK but if we had the chance to stay again we'd seriously consider it. Beautiful retreat from the busyness and noise of daily life."

"Wow, the yard at this place is spectacular! Talk about being right in the middle of the National Park--awesome. We were at a conference during most of the days, so we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back deck by those gorgeous rocks in the back yard at night. It was so peaceful and quiet. The hot tub was wonderful too.
The house itself is not what I'd call luxury living, but we didn't really expect that either. There are lots of bugs (it is the desert) and many of the screens need to be replaced. The beds were comfortable and there are lots of places to sleep. The guest house has it's own bathroom and there is another full bath in the main house.
The art studio has 4 single beds and would be a great hide out for a group of kids or teens. The room above the garage is quite nice, however, there is no screen on the sliding door which goes out to a very nice rooftop deck (so would be hot in there at night without leaving the sliding door open).
The handyman did say that they would be fixing the screens, so you may want to check on that before you book if that's important to you. It was cool enough at night for us to leave the windows open instead of using an A/C, which was great--nice breeze every evening.
Kitchen: Not great. Plenty of plates, no good knife to cut veggies. No blender, we brought our own. Pans are very worn out and not very good quality. Inside kitchen is small. Outside kitchen is awesome.
Overall, we LOVED it. The energy there was the most amazing part. We even had some big horned sheep come for a visit one day. They hung out up on the rocks in the back yard and allowed me to take some great photos! You'll hear coyotes at night and see jack rabbits cruising around. There are even a few mice that live on the back patio that come out at night. One startled us one night, but he was super cute.
It's a great place to stay. Have fun!"
