Overview

About the property

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 Deserts

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...

This house ruined it for all the other HomeAway homes

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best vacation home I've ever rented. Like everyone else said, the photos don't do it justice. The inside of the home is immaculate. So nice. Everything you could possibly want or need is there, including binoculars, a telescope, walking sticks, cowboy hats, wood for a fire, a cowboy tub, lounge chairs, a hammock, an outside shower. .. The view is beautiful. The attention to detail is impressive. I couldn't stop taking photos. We had such a wonderful time. No joke, an hour after we arrived my 11-year-old announced that it was the best vacation he's ever had. (We travel often). I must have said, "this house is amazing" at least a hundred times. I'd love to go back RIGHT NOW.

Truly 5 star

A beautiful well stocked, very clean home. It is very private, has great views, and lots of wildlife around.

Cindy provided directions in detail which led us right to the house. Cindy was available and immediately responsive to all communications. We will be back!

2 families stayed here for the weekend. The house is perfect in every way. Cindy has provided everything we could need to cook in, relax and feel at home. The view is spectacular and the proximity to the state park is perfect. We will be coming back for sure!

Sublime

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, the view sublime, the weather was fantastic and we had three incredible days exploring Joshua Tree Park and then returning to our fantastic retreat at Luna Vista. We had planned to go out to dinner one night but the house was too fine to leave, we opted to stay home, cook and admire the stars every night we were there.

Thank you so much for such a lovely stay.

Mahalo,

5 stars all around

It does not get much better than this. The view of the valley is amazing. The property is ideally situated for wildlife viewing, and I love how the back windows open all the way up so that you are really connected to the outdoors. The grounds are extremely well kept. We took full advantage of the hammock, nature trail, telescope, BBQ, and fire pit. The kitchen and laundry room are well stocked. Access to the park is easy. The owner provided a plethora of information on local attractions and restaurants. As an added bonus the property is dog friendly! Thank you for sharing your home!
