About the property

You are transported into another world that is private, peaceful and serene.

Quail Crossing, a rare property at the end of the road, is adjacent to hundreds of preserved acres; your backyard playground for a unique and memorable experience. The property boasts 23

healthy Joshua Trees and over one hundred Yuccas. Magnificent views of Joshua Tree National Park and the mountains to the west. Early risers wake up to glorious sunrises with Quail families and Jackrabbits playing outside your bedroom window. Then take your pick from the multitude of outdoor seating and hammocks and enjoy the silence as you watch for lizards, antelope squirrels, coyotes, hawks, bobcat and more - ( a desert tortoise if you are lucky!) that thrive in this protected area. Dreamers enjoy breathtaking sunsets around the warmth of the outdoor fire-place. The bats come out to play and then the sweeping night sky full of shooting stars. Ah, idle inspiration!

Newly built, the home offers clean, simple, light filled spaces: a modern kitchen, lovely dining area to enjoy a good meal with family and friends, skylights, upscale furnishings, indoor Jacuzzi tub, convenient laundry facilities, flat screen TV for DVD's only, stereo music device pairing, two very comfortable queen size beds, and two sets of bunk beds and verandas. This home will sleep up to 8 max.

Create the get-away experience you've always wanted.

Cowboy spa available from May to October.

About Geri Girardin

I am a university professor and a Trader. Having experienced the joys of both travel and staying in other people's homes, I have the right perspective to put my guests at their ease. I am a Canadian. I grew up in a village north of my university city, Edmonton. When I picked up and moved to Australia, a new world opened up for me. Since then, I have enjoyed experiencing various cultures and cuisines.

Geri Girardin purchased this house in 2015

Why Geri Girardin chose Joshua Tree

I loved this property from the moment I became aware of it. I like the Santa Fe style of architecture. I think it fits into the desert landscape. Additionally, the home is furnished in a modern, clean unobstructed way which will surely delight you.

What makes this house unique

Initially, I got a big kick out of the cowboy spa. However, when evening fell and the stars appeared above the twinkling lights of Joshua Tree in the distance, it took my breath away. As a city girl now for many years, I had forgotten how vast and deep the sky is. I mean, I know this intellectually but to experience it viscerally - wow!

Peaceful desert retreat at Quail Crossing

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING time!! Your home is a peaceful, beautiful treasure. Everything we needed to relax and enjoy Joshua Tree was provided. The hammock was a great place to chill out in the afternoon after getting wet in the Cowboy Tub. We enjoyed watching the quails, roadrunners and jack rabbits that were abundant around the property. At night, The Milky Way rises in the skies as the sun sets. The Perseid meteor shower peaked during our stay, and our 12 year old got to see the Milky Way and 5 fireballs in one night. He cried, he was so moved by the beauty of it.❤️

We left Quail Crossing with full hearts. Your home has changed each one of us in a beautiful way. THANK YOU for having us and sharing your home and kindness with others. We would love to come back!!

Perfect Little Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful place to stay! The house was beautiful and the property was absolutely perfect. There was so much cute wildlife scuttling about, especially quails (Geri provides food to feed them everywhere). The house is secluded just enough to see the amazing sky at night with lounge chairs and a gas fire pit to enjoy while you gaze. There is plenty of property surrounding the house to be able to hike a little. The house already provides the most spectacular view though! I never wake up early on vacations but I found myself waking up at 6 AM each morning in order to enjoy the sun coming up over the mountains, the little quails, and the nice little breeze. There are a hammock and hammock chair on the front porch which are perfect for watching the quails (they make the cutest little sound). These were my favorite spots. My fiancée and I had the best time we could have imagined staying at Quail Crossing and I really hope that Geri will still have her place available a few years from now when we come back. Everything was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t thank Geri enough for that.

Awesome Getaway Weekend with the Cousins!

  • 5 of 5

What a serene setting in the desert! The home was immaculate and Geri had thought of every detail to make our stay perfect! We loved the location with all the walking trails and abundance of nature. Couldn’t have chosen a better spot for a weekend to celebrate a wedding and to reconnect with family!

True Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do any justice for this amazing property. We were completely floored the moment we opened the front door. The house has a great open floor plan that really is an entertainer's dream. It's tastefully decorated and you can simply tell that Geri put so much love into this home. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of plates, cups, and utensils. Each room had a care basket just in case someone forgot a toothbrush, comb, or other essentials. There were 8 of us that stayed here and there was plenty of room for everyone. We spent most of the day enjoying the property and lounging around the various chairs in the front and backyard. We really wanted to enjoy the cowboy spa, but there was too much rust for our taste so we didn't go in. Geri did mention this to me beforehand, but it was just our bad luck that this wasn't going to be fixed until after our stay. Communication with her was great and we couldn't have wished for a better stay. We can't wait to go back!

Super relaxing and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderfull time! The view was breath taking, the house was warm and cozy and I would highly recommend this property to a friend! They made us a guide to help make our experience and stay more exciting. The owner checked in daily to make sure we were okay, which was super sweet. The best part was just enjoying the scenery.
