Beautifully decorated escape on top of a steep hill overlooking the valley below

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 days at the Moroccan getaway, where we cooked, read, and enjoyed the lovely view. The feel of the place is lovely and makes you really feel disconnected from work and other cares.

Owner's Response: heather and her family write that they had "a wonderful 4 day vacation at the getaway"... adding comments like "a beautifully decorated escape" and "so lovely" that it makes one feel disconnected from work and other cares but only give me a 4 star review??? i called heather after her stay asking her if something was wrong with her stay at the getawaysince she gave a 4 star review after raving about the property?? she said that she considers 4 stars a great review..??? she suggested i should have coffee and then may deserve a 5 star review?? just want to mention: heather asked for a very early check in which i happily accomodated heather loved the property so much that she called her sister and invited her to join her at the property and asked to rent the adjacent studio. there is a 3 night minimum at my studio she explained that her sister was a nurse and could only get away for one night and could i please allow a one night minimum since they loved it so much i went out of my way to ignore policy and accomodate her sister after accomdating these extras i still didn't rate a 5 star reveiw.. 99% of my reviews are 5 stars... it seems the guests that want extras are the ones that give lower ratings than the guests that ask for no special favors..

Peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Although it's conveniently located near an entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, it feels worlds away from everything. Located on a ridge (definitely needed the SUV we rented) the impeccably clean and well-stocked home has great views of the valley. We lived evenings of stargazing after a full day of hiking in the park. Lovely visit.

Moroccan Mojave Getaway is a relaxing retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The steep access road to the property gets your attention, but also adds to the adventurous location, perched high above Joshua Tree. Great views both day and night, and a cozy cabin. Kitchen is well-appointed, and cold nights were no problem with the wood-burning stove. We drove into the national park one day (only a few minutes to the entrance, and hiked in directly from the cabin on another day. The place was affordable, convenient and enjoyable in every aspect, and Byrnadette took care of the business end with aplomb. Stay here, you'll like it!

We had an amazing, relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure staying at this clean, serene Moroccan hideaway. The first thing I noticed were the beautiful sweeping views of the Desert! Truly breathtaking! Very quiet and relaxing, we were able to work and meditate and hike all weekend! Only a 5 minute drive from the Joshua Tree Saloon, we were able to enjoy our nights as well! Byrnadette was very easy to work with and her assistant Jess was very helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a quiet, relaxing, romantic time in the desert!

Magical Moroccan Mojave

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we left the rest of the world behind and instantly fell in love with this place. The main house which we stayed in, was inviting and very comfortable. It's more beautiful in person than the photos. It's sits on a hill with expansive views of the area which made for epic sunrises. The kitchen is fully stocked, we cooked all of our meals in. I don't think JT is known for its fine cuisine so we really appreciated the great kitchen. The driveway is steep but we made it and don't have an SUV. The park is only 1 mile away, another plus.

We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay and will definitely go back. As far as reaching the owner and getting our deposit back, it all went swimmingly. Thanks and we can't wait to go back!

Wonderful, cozy, and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The Getaway was perfect! Very quiet and private, amazing views and an easy drive to town. We happened to stay during a very cold weekend but the fire (thank you for the wood) and space heaters kept the house very warm and cozy. We didn't need a thing during our stay but Byrnadette was very easy to get in touch with. Thanks so much for sharing your great getaway!
