  • Home away from home...

    "I have been meaning to write this review for long time and am finally getting around to it! I rarely write reviews, but this little cabin in the desert stole my heart and I felt the need to put a good word in for it! My boyfriend and I came here for our first anniversary and I have to say that we just had the most amazing time. From the very first moment we arrived on the property, there was just this energy throughout the whole place, such happiness! The owners have really thought of every detail, I don't think I would have changed a single thing. It was clean, well maintained, and has eclectic décor; the little handbook they put together with troubleshooting and how-to's was so helpful and thorough! They included everything from how to work the tv to what restaurants they recommend, we didn't have a single question that little binder couldn't answer. I can't wait to go back, I think of our time there often and miss it so much! I enjoyed the cowboy tub during the heat of the day and the stars at night, which were simply breathtaking, and will definitely be returning soon! I would absolutely recommend this rental!"

  • Thirty Days in the Desert excerpts from my diary

    "Not so much a review of the house but my relationship to the environment that exposed these thoughts. If you need a place to reflect and solitude, stay here. "I became party to the secrets of the desert to grow to share whether it's stuffing little beaks with food tossing lettuce for not so stray rabbits fending off road runners determined to have dove for dinner life must be shared to grow watered with countervailing ideas tested honed posted questioned it is not at all about me or you life and love will only grow if it is given away freely without expectation of reciprocity not that you will harm yourself but that you will love unconditionally when you can do that then you will find the faith to move mountains the strength to live out your days in this world and become truly part of it to have it become part of you ""

  • Desert Goodness.

    "This house was amazing. I'll get the negatives out of the way first. I had to dock it one star because the record player did not work properly. We're musicians and audiophiles and a big selling point on this place was the amazing LP collection and record player. Obviously we were pretty bummed when we couldn't get it to work. Luckily I carry around audio supplies like a weirdo and was able to hook up an 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter with 1/8 inch cable to make the Ipod Work. It would've been nice if an Ipod hookup was already there for people that just wanna listen to music on their devices. Also in the notes it tells you vaguely to maybe think about not using the shower in the master bedroom. It says it can get a bit "splashy." It should say "DO NOT EVER USE THE SHOWER ONLY TAKE BATHS" because we tried to use the shower and it immediately started flooding the place! If we didn't notice it right away the entire house probably would have filled with water! However the tub was amazing and the jacuzzi function worked just right. Ok on to the positives. This place has the most beautiful 360 degree desert and mountain views. There is awesome plant life all around you and you can walk around collecting beautiful stones that are littered all over the place. If you like Dwell magazine then you'll be happy with the aesthetics of this place. Very clean, kitschy, and minimal in a good way. Antique typewriters and vintage trinkets were a nice touch. The owner was kind enough to let us bring our Boston Terrier and she had a blast. Be careful of letting your pets wander as there are coyotes around. Also watch out for rattlesnakes! Outdoor area was great albeit pretty minimal with furniture. The fire pit was great as was the outdoor grill and big coffee table. A/C in every room which was great, although we couldn't figure out the ceiling fan in the master. Good kitchen with lots of stuff for cooking. Fireplace in the main room is super chill so make sure you buy plenty of firewood. Very quick drive to the national park and all the good stuff. The dirt road is pretty long and bumpy to get up to the house so an SUV is pretty optimal. Wifi worked well although it took some trial and error to figure out which wall switch operated it. Again I would've given this 5 stars but ya gotta fix that record player for us audio nerds! Also a sunbathing chair or 2 outside would help. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay here again."

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.
