  • Blissful recharge

    "Waking just before dawn on the screened sleeping porch, I slipped on my hikers and walked out into the darkness. I stood still, cocking my head slightly, hearing rabbits stretching from their sleeping spots, busy chipmunks readying for the day. I raised my eyes, and the desert had come alive before me. Joshua trees spindled like beautiful dancing aliens, blooming cacti displayed their best yellows and pinks, and, when my eyes adjusted, a million of the tiniest wildflowers burst from the sand and rocks in a more brilliant carpet than any man can create. So, yes. The setting is superb. The home itself is so very comfortable, and perfectly appointed for meals and midday siestas. The owners are lovely. The plentiful rabbits, adorable. I am already planning another visit and have been telling all my friends about this great find. I hope you enjoy its wonders too."

  • Great Experience!

    "My husband and I stayed for two nights this year and all we can say is it was one of the best vacation rentals we've experienced. Everything works well and the pictures may not show it but you have complete privacy from any of the neighbors. The neighborhood is really quiet and all the wildlife was a pleasure to enjoy.Thanks to Alisha for being so helpful with the booking.Would definitely stay here again in the future."

  • Transcendent!

    "Gazing at the night sky while burning the avocado wood left us speechless (a feat not easily achieved!). Pappy & Harriets, a local restaurant, was unpretentiously delicious -- thank you for the recommendation! Your courtesy is a trait we come across very often, Peter, we are so appreciative of your kindness and guidance. It was a magical time -- best ever!"

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.
