Joshua Tree Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

Minutes From Joshua Tree National Park: 3-bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Home.

High above the village of Joshua Tree, only steps from Joshua Tree National Park. You will be mesmerized by the ever-changing play of sun and moon on the desert landscape.

Amenities include: Spacious great room with fireplace; Wi-Fi; flat screen TV with Roku, Pandora and Netflix for Internet music and movies; DVD player and collection of DVD classics. Open the twelve-foot window wall and experience the sights and sounds of the desert from inside the living area. The full size kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, new stainless appliances, a walk-in pantry, everything you need to prepare your gourmet meals, laundry facilities and a gas barbeque.

The master bedroom, in vintage Mexican décor, has a deluxe queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a sliding glass door onto the expansive covered patio. The master bathroom has a beautiful Talavera tiled vanity, walk-in shower and jetted tub to soothe those weary muscles after a day of hiking. Choose the Cowgirl room with its antique décor, two twin beds, ceiling fan, or enjoy the Cowboy room’s old Western décor, queen bed, ceiling fan, and sliding glass door onto the patio. The guest bathroom has a full shower and tub. All towels and linens are provided.

Luna Vista has central heating and air-conditioning, but the outside living areas will draw you outdoors - try the cowboy shower or a soak in a cowboy tub! There’s nothing better after a day of desert fun! And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience the meandering nature trail that will lead you around the 2.5-acre property. It may inspire you to continue hiking right into Joshua Tree National Park. Let us know in our wildlife log what creatures you encountered. With all this to see and do just outside your backdoor, you might never want to leave this magical place!

Why Cindy Beck chose Joshua Tree

Our family has been coming to and loving the Mohave Desert for 4 generations. When our primitive cabin of over 50 years burned in 2007 in a wildfire in the Eastern Sierras we were devastated. But from the ashes came this new home in the high desert at Joshua Tree! We have found another place of peace and refuge right next to the spectacular Joshua Tree National Park. We fell in love with the abundance of flora and fauna, the unusual and awesome geology, the glorious sunrises and sunsets, the forever views of the ever-changing desert landscape, the dazzling night sky and, of course, the beautiful moonrises…

What makes this house unique

The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our family favorite! We have stayed multiple times and absolutely love it. The views, the outdoor spaces, the cleanliness and attention to detail can not be beat. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and the bedrooms and layout are perfect for our family of five. It is an amazing place to come back and relax after a long day of hiking Joshua Tree or to lounge around in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee on the back porch as the kids explore the property. Thank you for sharing your home...what special memories!

simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Luna Vista. The view is splendid, the home itself is very well designed, very well outfitted and extremely comfortable. Lots of space outside with several places to sit and admire. Brilliant desert nature and 360 degree view. The contact with the owner was quite positive and friendly.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

I love this house. This is my second stay here. I gave it 4 stars previously because the roads were so badly washed out. The roads are not perfect and I wouldn't want to drive a very low slung sports car over them, but a standard car should do fine now. I've raised my rating based on the improved condition of the road. The house is wonderful and the kitchen is an absolute treat for people who like to cook. The view is incredible, the back porch is unequaled, the decorating and comfort factors rate a 10.0 in my book.

Amazing home in Joshua Tree!

Luna Vista is just beautiful! You can see all the love and care that went into decorating this home. Every detail was perfect. It had all the comforts of home plus a scenic view to just relax and enjoy time with friends and family. There were also many activities and places to visit nearby. It was a perfect getaway!

Looking forward to returning

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house, on a rise overlooking the town of Joshua Tree, the park entrance, and huge swaths of the Milky Way. The grounds have footpaths to explore, with a variety of scenic resting places. It's remote enough to enjoy some solitude (with a few distant voices, barks, and howls), yet convenient to town if you don't mind taking your time over the last mile of dirt road. The kitchen is well-outfitted, the house modern and clean... Thanks, Cindy; we'll likely be back.
