About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This 2 bedroom/ 2 bath modern home was designed to fit the landscape of the desert while bringing in a modern flair. The back yard connects to hundreds of acres of protected remote desert wilderness. Hike right outside the back door!

Sleeps 1-6 people. Two queen beds in private rooms and a full size futon in back area of house. One bathroom has a stand up shower and the other has a shower/tub. Central heat and evaporative cooling.

Located on the edge of downtown Joshua Tree and approximately 3.5 miles to Joshua Tree National Park entrance. The fully fenced back yard is over 1 acre and opens up to a built in pool (not heated) and hot tub, lots of outdoor seating, a gas bbq and outdoor fire pit.

Large kitchen with dining table (seats up to 6) and 3 additional barstools. Ice maker, Brita water filter, microwave, dishwasher, basic condiments and almost everything you can imagine to make most meals.

Complimentary whole bean coffee, herbal teas and condiments for all of our guests. Pets allowed at this home with a small fee.

Pricing stated is for 2 people. Nightly rate goes up $25/night after 2

By listening to our past guests, we know that most of you are coming here to spend time with friends and loved one(s) so we have thoughtfully created spaces for enjoying time together - comfortable seating to share long nights, fully stocked kitchens for sharing meals, fire pits to gather around, games to entertain, and a long list of things to do in the area, so that you may explore the desert

All of our homes are located in the town of Joshua Tree just minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park and are professionally maintained on a regular basis. Our guests are guaranteed a personal, unique, and intimate experience. Most importantly, if there are any emergencies, we are just minutes away to help. Our reviews posted here are from previous guests, please feel free to read them and ask questions. Thank you for considering us.

Escape from the city life and experience the solitude, stars and endless blue skies with our desert vacation rentals. Just 120 miles from L.A. and 30 miles from Palm Springs, Joshua Tree is a short drive to an oasis of discovery. Its nearly perfect year-around weather and smog free air attract people from all over looking for a place to get a way from it all.

Joshua Tree National Park welcomes over a million visitors every year. The park offers rock climbing, hiking, sight seeing, biking, camping, bird watching, star gazing, and exploring. This amazing park looks simple at first glance but its surreal geologic features will have a lasting impression. Want something different? Within a few minutes are hot springs, horse back riding, gambling, outlet stores, tram rides, atv riding, and more.


Rock Climbing is a sport that people from all age groups can enjoy (we climb with our nieces and nephews ages 5 to 18) and I have heard countless stories from people that have used climbing to overcome addictions, build self confidence, get in shape and to be in touch with nature.


Hiking in the desert can make you feel worlds away from the city life. With the wide open space and prehistoric looking geography you can’t help but feel a sense of wonder for this amazing place. There are so many places to explore from old mining camps, historic homes built into the rocks, hidden oasis where Indians once settled, view points where you can see in every direction due to the smog free air and so much more.

Star Gazing:

Anyone who has been to the desert knows what we are all saying when we brag about our desert night skies. According to the BBC, 99% of the continental United States (and two thirds of the world's population) never see a truly dark, starry sky. The Mojave Desert is one of the last places left in the United States where you can still see the Milky Way with the naked eye. At all of our rentals, there is plenty of outdoor seating and lounging to take in the night. It is one of the most special things we can offer our guests during their stay- a piece of peace that they can take with them anywhere.

Perfect Joshua Tree Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic vacation house - it is so comfortable, has a perfect layout, and is minutes from the JT park entrance. Christa has all the random supplies that are sometimes in short supply at vacation rentals (condiments! aluminum foil! dish soap!) and a perfectly stocked kitchen. The view and privacy is amazing and the hot tub is great. Tons of seating and counter space and room to spread out. Thanks for a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay Leslie! I also love the layout of the house with the big kitchen/living room being open so you can easily accommodate a larger group or simply enjoy the company of 2 in an open space. I'm glad you took advantage of the supplies we offer- we know what its like to stay at a rental that has hardly any so we supply the most important! Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again!

Excellent stay in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't fully do justice to this home. My family of four enjoyed a great weekend there. The sunrises are spectacular and the night-time views down to the town are nice as well. The location could not be more convenient: just off the road to the north entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. The house was spotless and well organized with the most complete set of kitchen and other supplies in any VRBO house we ever have rented. The owner was prompt, well organized, and helpful. Relaxing in the hot tub after a day of spectacular scenery and hiking was perfect. Many thanks!

Gorgeous house with a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights at Casa mesa and loved every minute. The house was perfectly maintained and we had everything we needed. The entire side of the house is glass overlooking a mountain. The sunrise with that backdrop is spectacular. The hot tub was a real treat as well. We ate at Crossroads- delicious! Trekked through Joshua Tree NP. That was such an incredible park- could've spent multiple days there. Thanks Crista for a very memorable experience!

3 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Joshua Tree Desert Casa very much. The view from there is just spectacular and we spent a lot of time on the terrace. It was fun to swim in the pool and warm up in the hot tub. We wondered why the water in the pool was rather fresh - the outdoor temperature during daytime was always in the 90ties. Since we were invited to a desert wedding at the Sacred Sand Hotel and to a Barbecue get together we didn't use the kitchen facilities and the grill at all - too bad, we thought, because everything was equiped very well.
