Overview

About the property

Studio, Apartment, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), close to Park entrance

Welcome to Joshua Tree, a desert community of rugged mountains, playful granite piles, magically quiet nights, peace and solitude and all the rock climbing, picture taking and sightseeing you yearn for in your travels here. The studio apartment has it's own parking, drive, entrance, porch and outside area. it has privacy fencing, sound proofing, and extra thick walls to make your apartment stay a wonderful experience.

You can relax on the studio patio and take in the wondrous panorama of the skyline of Joshua Tree National Park. Just recharge and enjoy nature’s gift of wildlife and wild scenery. Enjoy the constant chatter of our cactus wrens, whose nest is a few feet from the patio or the family of quail who roost overnight in the yucca not far from your door. Perhaps a coyote will sing you a song. This is our desert music, a concert that welcomes you.

The studio is furnished for two. A comfortable bed, sparkling clean rooms, a kitchenette with a microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, frying pan and a variety of pots and pans, utensils and spices which should make anyone who enjoys cooking happy.

The porch sports a gas BBQ and affords privacy, comfort and incredible views of the park. When you’re ready for that walk the hiking trail is an easy 5 minute walk away. The Joshua Tree Highlands, where our studio is located, is a series of sandy roads, seldom traveled, where we all take advantage of our special surroundings with an evening walk.

If your sights are more ambitious we can provide you with horseback riding, rock climbing and biking, guided by local professionals. Or, you could travel into the park and visit the Wonderland or Parker dam or hike through any of a thousand granite valleys.

We are blessed with several super music festivals and Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneer town offering a great music venue. With spiritual retreats and yoga centers, with alternative health care, with fine health food stores, for such a tiny spot you’re sure to find something exciting to do. Enjoy your stay and come back.

About Piper

Piper and her dog Ivy, she is a gardener, rockhound, has a hound and loves the desert.

Piper purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Piper chose Joshua Tree

I once had a bed and breakfast in Hawaii and when building this home could not resist but to put in a small vacation rental studio that would be charming and affordable to adventurous travelers.

What makes this apartment unique

It is so quiet here, there are only the sound of birds and coyote choirs. Wildlife is abundant, and happy. The starry nights are vivid, partly because of low light pollution and the lack of humidity in the atmosphere. The milky way is velvety and bright here.

Excellent affordable studio close to park entrance!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing setting...in the middle of a desert garden. In order to get to the property, you have to drive down some rough dirt roads, but is easily traversed by the average car. Piper was a great host, provided flashlight (very helpful) and late check out of her own volition. Place is average sized for a one room studio, stays cool in the hot dry weather, and met all of our need perfectly. Very reasonably priced, very clean, well maintained, dependable wireless. Definitely recommended for any couple visiting JTNP.

This quaint property sits on a dirt road surrounded by the nature of Joshua Tree. The studio is equipped with almost everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The bed is extremely comfortable. The property is shared with another house, but it did not feel like it. It was very, very private. The entrance to Joshua Tree is only a few miles down the road. I really feels like you are still in the part with all of the plant an animal life here. I would stay again!

Quaint studio in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I was driving through town and stayed only one night, however I would have loved to stay a couple of days more. The studio has charming decor and is a simple set up in a great location to enjoy the quietness, views and star gazing at night.

Really good!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this place. High recommendation for anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful place to stay in the desert. Humble accommodation, good value for the price. Super relaxing. Close enough to Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs etc. Only slight downside is that the bed isn't great, OK for a few nights though.

Awesome Studio Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Piper's place is super cute and cozy. It was cold when we were there, but we still got to sit on the porch under blankets and watch hummingbirds dance around the flowers and sit on the bench at night (under several blankets!) and stargaze. This is a great little oasis in the desert and very close to the entrance into Joshua Tree Park. Please note: There's no kettle, stove, or hotplate, but there is a microwave in the little kitchen.

Lovely Getaway

Very nice little private studio. Clean and quiet. Overall a very good experience. Really appreciate being able to book for just one night, can't beat the cost. Hope to visit again.

Additional information about rental rates

There is a 7% San Bernardino County tax I'm required to collect and pay. Happily, this money goes back into the village of Joshua Tree in the form of beautification projects and maintenance of parks, making it a nicer place for visitors and residents alike.
