About Cliff

I grew up in the small suburban town of Chappaqua, NY and have always enjoyed the outdoors and the arts. I later crossed coasts and graduated from UC Berkeley. I now work in Finance in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree is my favorite weekend escape.

My family and I love to travel and my philosophy in running vacation rentals is to bring together all the elements of what we enjoy most as discerning customers. We also receive some of our best ideas from former guests. You can expect a fast response time when contacting me.

Cliff purchased this lodge in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cliff was a super welcoming host from our first contact, and he gave us prompt and detailed instructions on how to find the house, enter it properly and enjoy it to the fullest extent. Everything advertised was in the house and in great working order - from the pool table to the newly renovated kitchen and in unit washer/dryer (very helpful for drying towels between our shower and hot tub sessions)! My friends and I had a great time and will absolutely be using this location again for our next climbing trip to Joshua Tree.

My family of 8 stayed at The Starlight House and had a great time. It was roomy and super close to Joshua Tree NP. Fun atmosphere.

Perfect Home for a Desert Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to do a weekend getaway to Joshua Tree, and we lucked out finding the The Starlight House. It was a perfect space for relaxation, cooking/eating, and recreation, with everyone having ample room to themselves. The house has cool features, like a great patio out front, a pool table, a really impressive non-Master bedroom design, and a full, open kitchen. The complex also offers a hot tub, which was the cherry on top of our weekend stay.

Finally, the house is just off the main drag of serene Joshua Tree, and it is easy to get to both the national park and other surrounding areas. We hiked nearby, and it was a blast. This house is a great foundation for your Joshua Tree experience. We would definitely stay here again!

Starlight House, Joshua Tree, CA

  • 5 of 5

The property was very pleasant and clean. The owner was promptly receptive to an issue that arose. Apparently there had been a weather problem prior to our arrival which caused some issues for the area, one of which may have been the Dish TV satellite. So I would suggest looking into checking the satellite dish to remedy the spotty reception. Otherwise, we were very pleased with our stay.

Great spot in JTree

  • 5 of 5

Great little complex of houses. Shared hot tub but always found it open. Pool table was fun. 2 full baths and full kitchen. Very close to Jtree nat park. Can walk to downtown Jtree. Walmart supercenter 5 min away in Yucca is the place to go for groceries. Would definitely stay here again.
