Our guest reviews tell our story better than we can.
Hawks View House in Joshua Tree is located in a secluded canyon 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. Hiking is available right out the back door, featuring back porch shower, fire pit and amazing views in every direction. A short drive to JTNP.
We rebuilt this 1950s Homesteader Cabin from scratch. After jack-hammering and re-pouring the old cement floor, we wood framed inside the original cinder block walls to provide lots of electrical outlets and additional insulation. The cabin features two 10 ft. covered porches, metal roof and metal ceiling, new dish washer, gas stove, refrigerator and state of the art AC and heating. All new plumbing provides good water pressure for both showers (one outside), whirlpool tub and kitchen. Enjoy our starry night skies around the propane fire-pit. Grill up some veggies and steak on the BBQ porch. We have an information center with complementary maps highlighting points of interest and recommended local restaurants, shops, coffee houses, art galleries, theaters, health food stores and our local yoga studio. Our local friends tell us they like to visit because of the unique location at the end of the road near the top of our hill. DO NOT use GPS to arrive at our location. GPS may lead you onto an impassable trail. You must approach our location from the east (Sunburst Road in Joshua Tree). Please allow us to text or email directions along with the front door lock combination for your stay.

About Paul Morehead
Paul began vacationing here from the San Francisco Bay Area 30 years ago, fell in love with the place and people and moved here in 2004. Paul is a professional nature/landscape photographer. We purchased this homesteaders cabin built in the early 1950's, and spent a year rebuilding it from scratch. After jack- hammering and repouring the floor, we framed and insulated the walls to provide plenty of electrical outlets, added 2 covered patios, ran a new water line to provide plenty of water pressure for the whirlpool tub and two showers (one outside) and included a night sky viewing area in the back yard. The cabin is on 5 acres, nestled at the end of our road in a private canyon 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. We love to meet new people and share this amazing location with others who share our passion for this beautiful desert area.
Paul Morehead purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Paul Morehead chose Joshua Tree
If you want seclusion only 6 minutes away from restaurants, shopping, art, night life and more, this is the property for you. Hike straight out of the back door, star gaze from the backyard (our canyon protects us from the "city glow"), be amazed from the view under a full moon, view wild life from the front porch. Our first visitor during construction was a Desert Tortoise from one of the many tortoise dens on our combined 10 acres of land. Your hosts home is next door to provide support when you want it and the privacy you came here for.

Amazing Desert Rental
If you're looking an out-of-the-way cabin with all the amenities you could desire this is the perfect place. The layout is well thought out and all the outdoor spaces make the house feel twice its size.
Super close to Joshua Tree National Park and great canyon view. The owners are delightful, knowledgeable about the area, and very responsive.
I have rented a lot of VRBO properties and this is one of my favorites.
Everything We Expected and More
Our four night stay at Hawks View cabin was everything we expected and more. It's a perfect place for two looking for a quiet, secluded place to hang out, relax and reinvigorate. It was very comfortable and has all the amenities you need for a stress-free stay. Lots of plants and wildlife to observe right around the cabin. Enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day. It's a nice complement to Joshua Tree National Park. Paul and Linda are excellent hosts. Paul was very accommodating and informative about local places to go to including places in the Park. We definitely will stay here again.
Loved sitting on front porch
Close to Joshua Tree National Park a real treasure
Paul was friendly, informative
House info book also very informative
Perfect Joshua Tree Hideout
Staying here at Hawk's View made our first trip to Joshua Tree even better! You really could't ask for anything more as Paul has gone the extra mile on every little detail. So cosy and clean, and so peaceful and quiet that we loved just hanging out here, whether it was cooking on the grill or just viewing the stars! We only wish we had more time to stay, so if we are lucky enough to make it back to Joshua Tree, this will definitely be our spot!!
Thanks for helping make our visit a memorable one!!
Beautiful and cozy place tucked away in a canyon
