About Louise

Hi - I'm Loui, a visual artist, photographer and nature lover. Sharing this amazing home with people who come to JT for the park, yoga, music, writing, photography, peace, is a great feeling.

Why Louise chose Deserts

This is a real house with living room, dining, kitchen all open to one another. Then the private bedrooms with queens size beds and big closets share a small bathroom. Hot water pressure is good. The views and wide open space to the north and west are beautiful. And I truly love that it is so close to the main strip of cafes, bar with good food and live music, shops and The Park!

My favorite get-away for 20 years, Joshua Tree became a sacred place to me. The quiet, openness, and night sky are transformative. Little by little I fixed it up, with my own sore hands and the help of others. Now is is super sweet and a delight.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, spacious and close to town.

UnPlug and Type Inn. The artwork and manual typewriters is a Novel Experience. Vintage manual typewriters are available for you to use. Whether you are a pro needing to finish, want to play in a new-old way, or type notes, it is a great way to spend or end the day!

Only the media you bring... there are speakers to stream music, news or listen to your favorite albums with your cell phone or laptop.

Sitting areas in yard, under shade tree and private backyard.

Pull-out couch sleeps two. The art in the home is for sale.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kate did not want to change her dates so I took care of it for her.

She choose to bring 4 dogs which I agreed to with charge. And told her the rate which she agreed to.

She had the address, map and phone number but choose not to use any it, yet complain about not finding the place.

She is the only person to not like the house, the town or the yoga retreat.

The wifi password is in logical place but she did not look.

Great home on the best side of the park!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Type Inn! We visited the first week in May. Mornings on the Mojave side of Joshua Tree were beautiful, so we got up early and enjoyed the cool air and beautiful views. Many wildflowers were in bloom. Later in the day, the rocks afforded shade and cool surfaces and there was almost always a breeze. It was hot by mid-afternoon, so we’d head back to the Type Inn for hot showers and a cool and relaxing home.

We came in the first night about 11 pm, but had no trouble finding the house. Everything was as we expected – no TV, microwave or dishwasher, but there is great AC, hot water, wifi, comfortable beds and all the other amenities we expected. The house is very convenient to the Joshua Tree Visitor’s Center and Park Entrance.

Crossroads was the best restaurant of the ones we tried. Groceries and a laundromat were close by, along with several outfitters to help with hiking and rock climbing information and accessories. A wonderful get-away vacation!

Quite, cozy little house

  • 4 of 5

Cute, clean, cozy little house on the edge of town. 15 min drive to the west gate of Joshua Tree

National Park. Perfect place to regroup after a day of hiking in the park. Great hot shower!

Terrific desert sunsets and cool desert nights.

Owner's Response: So glad you loved it and the kids enjoyed the fenced yards... Would love to have you return. Just need to let you know though, the housekeeper said the stove burner was ON when she arrived. Fortunately it was shortly after you left.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect. Decorated nicely. Clean. Comfy beds. Met all our needs. Private. A few min drive to Joshua Tree. Thai restaurant nearby was superb.Crossroads also good for breakfast and not fancy supper. Make sure u hike 49 Palms Oasis and Ryan's Mtn.

Host/Owner got back to me immediately when I texted a question. It was easy to find. WiFi worked well.

Very pleasant stay. Would highly recommend.

Weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much. House was nicely equipped. Refrigerator filled with goodies. Location good but recommend that if you go out at night and travel back roads that you record house number which is on garage. Shower excellent. Pretty much lived up to its description.
