Overview

About the property

Our home offers the best of both worlds. Located just under 1 mile to Joshua Tree Village restaurants and shops and 6 miles to the Park entrance we are close to all that Joshua Tree has to offer, but our property is situated on 5 quiet, private acres that offer serenity, amazing views, and the best of the desert landscape and wildlife. We were regular guests at this home and loved it so much we bought it!

Efforts have been made to to insure our home and property offer a stylish, zen retreat for guests visiting the Joshua Tree area.

Inside our one bedroom, one bath home you will find a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and all you need to cook and set your table. A cozy wood burning stove is located in the open living room/dining room, but our home also has heat and air conditioning to insure your stay is most comfortable year round. In the living room you will find a couch that folds out to accommodate 2, wifi, flat screen tv with DirecTV programming, dvd player, and movies. For the music lovers we have a sound system that includes an ipod hook up, cd player, and the special touch of a turn table with a vinyl collection. We keep a guitar on hand as well in case you want to play your own music!

The bedroom offers beautiful views and a queen bed. We also have a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Outdoor amenities include a cozy chimney, 5 person hot tub with a full body lounger jet massage, propane grill, and outdoor seating including a double chaise lounge that is perfect for outdoor napping or sleeping under the stars. Joshua Trees surround our property, and the views are stunning. We have a bird feeder that attracts much wildlife, and regular visitors to our property include coyote, quail, jackrabbits, and road runners.

Our home is the perfect spot for nature lovers, writers and artists seeking solitude and inspiration, and couples seeking a romantic get away.

About Alisha

My husband and I are frequent travelers who love music, books, film, wine, and the great outdoors. We travel to our favorite spot- Joshua Tree- as often as we can.

Alisha purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Alisha chose Deserts

We find our home to be the ideal spot in Joshua Tree- close to everything while being in a quiet, private spot surrounded with beauty and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Location & Views! Our home is situated less than one mile from Joshua Tree Village and 6 miles to the Park Entrance but on 5 quiet, private acres. The views of the surrounding mountains and foothills are gorgeous, the wildlife is abundant, and there is nothing better than relaxing in the hot tub watching the sunset over the mountains. There are hiking trails all along the foothills by our home that offer stunning views and ultimate seclusion.

Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

We came for our honeymoon and this cute abode was absolutely perfect for our stay! We couldn't ask for anything more. We loved watching the stars in the jacuzzi at night and seeing all the wild rabbits and birds during the day. We will absolutely stay again.

Nice, quiet, and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this home is great. It is comfortable and quiet, and the hot tub is in a great location for soaking while looking up at the stars. It is also really close to some great restaurants. The AC unit in the living room works well, but the bedroom got toasty during the day because there wasn't an AC unit in there. However, fans and, at night, the cool breeze kept the whole house cool. The outdoor furniture provided a nice place to drink morning coffee and watch the bunnies, quail, and roadrunners.

Perfect quiet desert retreat, super close to national park entrance

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a weekend during the Perseid meteor shower and had the most amazing time. I filled the bird when I arrived and 20 minutes later there were so many birds around I couldn't count. There were jack rabbits and bunnies everywhere, some of the bunnies would come within 2-3 feet of me. The outdoor lounge and hot tub were perfect, we saw hundreds of meteors and the second night I fell asleep on the lounger under the stars. It was a truly magical weekend and I would recommend this location to anyone.
