Artistic, Cool & Comfy Cabin Rental in Joshua Tree

Bedrooms Studio
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

Green Acres Ranch is more than a cozy place to is a work of art surprising its happy guests with beauty and creativity.

The ranch has two separate cabins (rented individually or together - see our other VRBO listing #14571) and is on acres of clean and sparse Mojave Desert land. Several lounging areas, hammocks, and fire pits help you soak up the sun, the stars, a good book or a glass of wine (It's rumored that a bottle has greeted a guest or two).

For those who love wildlife, our mature trees and other plant life attract a host of twittering birds and scurrying critters: quail, doves, friendly bats, and roadrunners to name a few. Ravens often nest in the large Tamarisk trees at the front gate, raising new hatchlings each year.

We're located less than a mile away from the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park, and our convenient location near the 62 Highway provides easy access to all nearby locations without sacrificing a sense of peaceful seclusion. Daily excursions may include Joshua Tree National Park (West entrance less than ten minutes away), East Mojave Scenic National Area, Big Morongo Wildlife Preserve, Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley, Big Bear Mountain, Twentynine Palms, Pioneer Town, or Giant Rock.

About Albert

We are artists from the Los Angeles area.

Albert purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Albert chose Panorama Heights

Joshua Tree is the best getaway from the city, if you want big open skies and uncrowded spaces! Green Acres Ranch has a relaxed and unpretentious feeling that guests instantly respond to.

What makes this cabin unique

What our guests really enjoy about the property is that it provides great comfort, yet has the slight feel of 'roughing it'. We are private, and yet easily accessible to Highway 62.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this wonderful property with us, it is by far the best wholesome vacation we have had as a family, my 4 year old loved rooming around the property checking out the desert plants you have off her Desert Plants workbook, the Joshua tree park was fun and educational, we enjoyed the beautiful full moon lighting up the yard at night, you have done an excellent job making the place comfy and useful, we are already talking about going back in March to spend few days, we will definitely recommend the spot to friends and family.Thanks againAli & Kathleen

Triple Threat: Artsy, Cozy & Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

Love this gem in Joshua Tree. Our dog absolutely loved the backyard and we enjoyed watching her! Quiet and peaceful place to relax and unwind. We’re repeat visitors and of course we wouldn’t stay at any other place when coming to JT. The owners are kind & considerate and I appreciate the prompt attention to my leaving items behind and the immediate phone call/text. You’ve got our highest recommendation!

Pure perfection

  • 5 of 5

I've rented the Roadrunner cabin many times over the years, and of all the places I've stayed, it still remains my favorite little Joshua Tree getaway! Each little nuance and all the special touches make this cabin unique, making for an unforgettable experience. The owners are incredibly professional and responsive, helping create a comfortable stay that will make you want to keep coming back. I'm already looking forward to a return visit!

Fun & Funky desert get away

  • 5 of 5

Green Acres is very well located and the owners provide terrific directions, making it easy to find. 10 minutes to JTNP for hiking, 5 min to “downtown” JT for lunch or cocktails.

We were sad that we chose to leave our pup at home, since the Roadrunner cabin (and possibly the other cabin on the property) has a nice fence yard, even an dog house and dish ready for water. We enjoyed the outdoor area with its bubbling water feature, lounge chairs and covered outdoor picnic table. We were bummed we didn’t get to use the outdoor kitchen or the big room attached to our cabin.

We enjoyed exploring the property and would love to know what is seen on the “critter cam”, other than our shoes 😂�😂�

The cabin is equipped with all the essentials you need for a comfortable desert stay. We easily hosted friends for drinks one evening & we all agreed, the vibe at GA is relaxed and inviting. Cool vintage pieces mixed well with modern ones making for an eclectic mix. Towels were fluffy, bedding was perfumy detergent free (Thx!). I thought the bed was perfect, the Hubs thought it too firm, but that falls into the personal preference category. It didn’t stop him from sleeping late! Thanks too for having coffee and it’s basic accompaniments on hand-a true morning lifesaver.

Thanks for sharing your space with us!

Simply this place is the best! We came here again to get away from the big city of Las Vegas-4th of July BOOMS. Our dogs were truly thankful. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Relaxing, peaceful, quite, and without any noise from colorful explosives. The cabin is very accomadating with everything you would need from home and has a very inviting & welcoming feeling. Your literally greeted at the front door with a table of wine glasses and a bottle. It's slightly different from what we remember last year as much remodeling with new upgrades: light fixtures, fans throughout, nice stainless steel fan above the stove and completely remodeled roof (natural wood). Some rooms were opened up for more space. The cabin is charming and the owners are Top Notch Host! Super friendly, artistic and creative people. They respond quickly with any questions you may have prior or present on your trip. It has become our home away from home and our dogs absolutely have a blast. I wish I could attach photos. Thank you Sandra & Albert. Very Respectfully, Melissa & Hector
