"The owners went above and beyond what I expected. Lovely property and thoroughly enjoyed the splash of hidden character"

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."

"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!"

"Great bungalow in the desert. We were visiting Joshua Tree Park and stayed at the bungalow for a couple of days. It was very convenient and a short drive to get to the park. In addition the the most perfect accommodations, all the communications and transaction with the owner went smoothly and without and problems. The bungalow was clean and provided all the items we could need for out stay. Highly recommend this bungalow."
