About the property

Charming 2 Bedroom With Office. Fits 4 People Perfectly But Can Sleep Up to 8.

Comfortable home in the high desert of California. A great place to get away from it all. Phone service is sketchy out here so there is a great reason to put away your phone and forget about everything else. (We do have WiFi though, so if its absolutely necessary you can stay in contact with the outside world) Bring the dogs, the dirt bikes we've got a lot of space for parking. We live across the street so if you need anything we are just a holler away.

About Jules Gehring

We are Jules and Steve a fun couple living up in the high desert. We wanted to get away from the rat race of the city and found comfort in the open spaces up here. We bought the place 'across the street' awhile back and moved in to that and decided to share our original home up here with all of you that just need to get away. Whether its for a weekend, week or a month, any time you can get to yourself up here is heavenly. We are very laid back and fun. The house is too. Don't expect anything fancy but it will be clean, not to worry. It is very still and quiet up here. Bring a book or your movies and prepare to do nothing.

Surrounded by mountains in the High Desert. Lots of sky and fresh air. There are lots of interesting things to do within a 30 mile radius of our charming home. Joshua Tree Nation Park is great to hike and explore. The town of Yucca Valley is full of antique stores and unique finds. Pioneertown itself is a preserved movie set that Gene Autry and Roy Rogers built back in the day. You'll never know what great bands will pop in to play at Pappy and Harriets, a high desert institution. The Integraton is an amazing 'sound bath' experience. We have some great art galleries and twice a year the local artists open up their workshops for personal tours. Cabazon Outlet Mall is about 40 minutes away as well as the Morongo Casino. And Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley lay at our feet.

Nice house with plenty of towels and blankets. The dining room table is better then the one pictured which was a nice surprise. Really easy to get to. 5 min drive from Pappy & Harriet's.

Above and Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this location! Stayed here for two nights and wished we were able to stay longer. We were in town for a wedding at Rimrock Ranch down the street and could easily walk to and from the venue.

The house itself was so comfortable and welcoming. The beds we're wonderful with plenty of extra bedding and towels in the linen closet. My fiancée was especially impressed with the large bathtub in the master bathroom. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed to cook and serve our meals, much more than we expected!

The property and surrounding views of the desert were stunningly beautiful. Loved sitting on the porch with our coffee enjoying the peaceful surroundings. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to all of our friends.

Monterey Park

Peace and quiet with your dogs.

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfect for a dog family get away and it was just as described on Homeaway. Our dogs ran around with so much joy and freedom. It really made our stay more enjoyable. As soon as we walked into Apache place it felt cozy and warm and the location was remote enough for serenity but close enough to run to the store in case you forgot to buy something. Also Apache place is close enough to other boulders that were not as crowded as the National Park. We had other friends staying near by at Casa Conejo and the short drive there on the dirt road was so much fun!!! The host is quick to respond to any questions or concerns and I would definitely visit again.

Such a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this property so much. The property was in the perfect location for us. The house was so clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone who was coming out to Pioneertown. It was definitely a wonderful home away from home.

Thank you....

It was my mother's 80th birthday bash. We absolutely loved the house. The layout was great, the kitchen was well stocked, plenty of linens, the location was awesome, very quite, beautiful scenery. Very secluded with great skies at night, and sitting out on the patio. Love the drive with all the unusual rock formations and vegetation. My parents really had a great time; and I thank you both so much. If we ever come out that way again, we would stay at your lovely home. Oh, and my husband and I had a awesome time as well.
