Recent Joshua Tree reviews

  • Probably perfect for hikers...

    "If we had come to Joshua Tree to hike in the park, I think the Retro Zen Den would have been fine. I would still have wished for mattress pads on the beds for hygiene's sake, a real second bedroom instead of a converted walk-in closet, and a bar or ring for a hand towel in the bathroom. The unit is conveniently located and very clean. It is well designed and built, and the furnishings are fabulous! There are soaps, shampoos and lotions which looked like they were left by previous guests. The kitchen had adequate tableware and cookware. The granola bars were a nice welcome and the book was very helpful. But I was in Joshua Tree for a family event. I would have really appreciated a closet pole for the one hanger present, plus a few more hangers. An iron and ironing board would have been great. Better lighting in the bathroom would have been a big help, but failing that, I could have used a mirror on a stand that I could have taken into a room with better lighting for grooming. And a full length mirror would have been wonderful! Luckily my husband was around to snap a couple of cell phone photos so I could make sure I was presentable. I do recommend this rental, especially for hikers who don't need to dress up. If you do need to dress for an occasion, just know to bring hangers, mirrors, etc."

  • Boulder Perfection!

    "What an extraordinary home, a delight for all who are lucky enough to pass through the threshold of The Joshua Tree Oasis. My husband and I are fortunate, as this was our second stay at JTO. The first excursion was with family, and the second, a planned vacation with friends. Both experiences could not have been more desirable in any other setting, anywhere. At every turn, in each corner, there is something to experience and enjoy, let alone the magnificence of the landscape surrounding the home. JTO is an assemblage of life enfolded into the monzogranite desertscape, a gem to seek and behold as often as one can manage. Wake to bold views captured in a multicolored kaleidoscope of color layered in clouds refracting the rising sun. Recline luxuriously while soaking in the Jacuzzi becoming a god/goddess in the shadows of the setting sun. Climb, climb, climb! Boulder perfection awaits your touch, striking land begging to be discovered just seconds away. Be calm, be happy, and be encompassed in the passion of the desert, JTO. I feel like I need to create one of those quick movie trailer quips that try to embody the total experience… “Fabulous with a bit of perfection mixed in.” “An absolutely sumptuous, and majestic desert offering.” But I’m not sure such quips could ever do JTO true justice. One must experience the pleasure of JTO to know."

  • Peaceful, Comfortable, Beautiful

    "My wife and I spent a week in the Think Tank. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in to the house. The vistas were fantastic, especially from the hot tub. Miriam was a gracious host. We really enjoyed reading her "house binder". It contained info about the house, hikes in the area and entertaining reviews of local restaurants. The location of the house is exceptional. The hikes we took from "right out the door" were wonderful and we didn't see another person the whole time. The west entrance to Joshua Tree Nat'l Park is just minutes away and access to the other park areas (49 Palms, Indian Cove, etc.) are no more than a 20 minute drive. A great home and a relaxing vacation worth repeating."

  • wonderful

    "We loved our stay in Joshua Tree. The house is a beautiful modern home in a great location: wonderful views and close to hiking. The host was great: well-organized, welcoming; she made everything easy. The coffee and tea was delicious; what a treat. We loved hiking in the desert. Here are the best hikes. From Black Rock Campground, hike the panorama loop trail. This fabulous hike has views almost the whole trip. It was our favorite. Also from Black Rock, hike up to Eureka Peak. Take the burnt hill trail back through a lovely desert valley. Boy Scout trail from south to north was also great; varied terrain including wonderland of rocks. Also, lost horse mine loop trail, and Ryan Mountain trail. The geology tour road drive is fun, too. We had perfect desert weather: cool and sunny. We hope to come back when it is warm enough to go in the beautiful modern pool!"
