NO PETS, MAX PARTY SIZE 6, NO EVENTS OR PARTIES, NO EXCEPTIONS THANKS ;) We provide a safe space for guests with pet allergies to stay and play. We operate on an on site water tank system.

The Ninja Ranch is perfect for a family, girls weekend, 3 couple getaway, or up to two small families. No exceptions due to onsite water supply. Ranch has 3 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. One opens to a south view, the other two to the north (one with direct access to the second bathroom.) Vaulted ceilings in the great room. Formal dining for 6 inside and out. A luxurious and well appointed ranch for the discerning traveler with inifnite special touches. The rental provides access to the first floor of the property only (owners storage loft excluded) with a lovely open floor plan in the main living area.

We have only one neighbor who values the seclusion of the Magical Mojave as much as we do. Therefore large groups, parties and noise are not a match for the Ninja Ranch.

Property is leased via a signed rental agreement. Payment is easily handled via the online payment system. I make a personal contact with each person I rent to and do my best to ensure your stay is pure mojave ninja magic. Ninja Ranch is a super special place that loves super people.


YOU ARE A NINJA - COME FIND YOUR SUPERPOWERS IN THE MAGICAL MOJAVE!

Please join us for the Joshua Tree Music Festivals, May & October each year.

The small town of Joshua Tree has a radically high ratio of lovely, creative folks. The wide open surroundings are inspiring. I had been looking for a place with some space, adjacent to the park. I fell in love with the ranch in a ninja minute.
