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 Joshua Tree
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.

Spectacular sunsets, quiet location
We were fond of this two-bedroom home atop a hill where a glimpse of desert combined with knock-out sunsets. Comfortable couch and chair in living room; beds are very comfortable as well. Very quiet neighborhood. We appreciated the typewriter theme with typewriters and prints throughout. Some owners make the mistake of using art that isn't universally appealing with the result that you never stop feeling it's someone else's home. The typewriter art here was very attractive with a fun retro theme.
Funky, Fun and convenient
We enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very convent to Joshua Tree NP on a quiet street and easy to find. Not Palm Springs, who wants that anyway, and worth the money.
Cute house near Joshua Tree National Park
Overall had a great stay at the Type Inn. House was very cozy and clean. Nice decor and amenities. Large yard and conveniently located in the center of town. Only con would be the furniture (beds and couch) is older and not very comfortable to me.
I am very relaxed 😊
Thanks Sofia - So glad you enjoyed your time at the JT Type Inn... We hope you will stay again here!
Great home on the best side of the park!
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!
Thank you for the honest and informative review. Hope you will visit again!
