Property type house


About the property

Sahara Madre is only 6 miles from downtown Joshua Tree and 10 miles to the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park yet you will feel quite secluded for a full desert experience. Enjoy the expansive views and the quiet desert in the lap of luxury.

This mission style structure has views for days, from the living room you get to look out double glass doors across the valley to see the jutting hills of the national park. From your bed in the master bedroom you can see the sun rise and from side patio watch the sun set.

The master bedroom has queen size comfort and the bathroom has a deep soaking tub as well as rain shower.

In the spacious great room you can cook, dine and entertain. For your entertainment there is a HDTV, DVD's of some of my favorite movies, as well board games, puzzles and cards. You can access Netflix through the smart DVD player. Here, we have a pull out queen size bed, so bring a friend or two.

The kitchen is fully equipped for you to create all of your culinary favorites. Included are dishes, blender, pots, pans, electric juicer.

All bedding and towels are provided.

We have a covered outdoor living space with BBQ and dining. Eat out and enjoy the cool crisp evening desert air.

We are on 2 acres but the neighbors are far between. You will have access to the full property, this house will be yours for the time of your booking.

Sahara Madre is located just behind the Noah Purifory Outdoor Art Museum. The sculptures of this 10 acre museum can be seen from the living room. This neighborhood is one of my favorites. Each surrounding property is unique and artistic.

Come and experience desert life in a comfortable cozy home.

About Sati

Originally for the east coast I have lived in CA for more then a decade. Through our this time I would come to Joshua Tree often and fell in love with this area. When I realized that I could own a home here I was thrilled. Now I am happy to own 3 homes in Joshua Tree that I can share with other travelers and desert lovers.

Sati purchased this house in 2014

Why Sati chose Joshua Tree

When I saw this property I was struck by the uniqueness of the design. The fact the it is on a large lot which keeps the neighbors at bay and that it is situated around the corner from the Noah Purifory Outdoor Artsite were the clinchers for me.

What makes this house unique

Sahara Madre, a beautiful mission style house, is far enough out of town to feel the seclusion of the desert yet close enough to still get to things when needed.

Cute abode but some problems

  • 3 of 5

First, the place is not easy to find, especially at night, as the directions are inaccurate in terms of distances and because half of the street signs were not in place.

The place was very clean (we met with the house cleaner when leaving, she was a wonderful person). The house is small but quaint, well decorated with style, not too frequent in the area. It was deafening quiet, which we love. Although the neighbors are at a good distance, which is also what we wanted, one of them kept directing an enormous powerful light toward the house all night long, every night. It never was there when we returned in the evening but each night started after we parked the car in front of the house. Kind of creepy, as the light "illuminated" the whole inside of the house through the large floor to ceiling windows with no curtains.

No internet connection during our whole stay. Owner difficult to reach, as cell phone connection was sketchy. Owner did leave us a couple of phone text messages saying that the internet connection will be taken care of. Despite the fact that my husband left several messages mentioning that he needed to check with his business and that it was a real problem, nothing was done.

The kitchen was poorly appointed if you want to prepare more than salad, as I do since I have dietary restrictions. The area, although wonderful for other things, does not offer much food choices. The bed was comfortable, the sleeper sofa was far from it.

While the inside of the house is very pleasant, the outdoors area is grungy. No nice comfortable place where to sit and have a drink. The patio area is too grungy and windy. We did not touch the hot tub. There is too much junk in the yard, broken fences, piles of broken tiles and concrete, that is not inviting. With some outdoors cleaning up and embellishing, some internet connection and some friendlier neighbors, the place would be awesome.

Perfect house for a couple.

The house is great! Just remote enough for us. Also a perfect location for exploring the park. We would definitely come back. Thank you!

Awesome desert retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed, off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy Joshua Tree National Park as well as get a sound bath at the Integratron. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Thinking about booking again soon!

Unique, fun place in the desert.

  • 5 of 5

Wife, toddler son (3 years old) and another couple spent 3 nights there for the Desert Trip concerts in Palm Springs (about a 40 min ride from Joshua Tree). Sati's place provided us beautiful respite from the "mean streets" of Indio-Palm Springs each night after the shows. The house is kept in great shape and the "beach" yard (as my son called it) was just the perfect feature to keep my son entertained each morning. Joshua State Park was very close as well as the towns of Yucca Valley & Twentynine Palms which have proper grocery stores and good restaurants. Very happy with our stay there. Thanks Sati. Looking forward to next year.
