I want to make your stay in Joshua Tree a memorable one. Please read my guest reviews to learn about their experiences at my vacation rental.
Spacious and cozy recently rehabbed home located in the heart of Joshua Tree Village just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park West Entrance Station. A quick 1/2 mile drive or walk and you're in the middle of Joshua Tree's small downtown of shops, eateries and galleries.
The main house sleeps 6 in two bedrooms with queen beds and a queen daybed. There are two full bathrooms.
For an additional fee you get the 270 sq. ft. detached studio with high ceilings that sleeps 4 more people on a queen bed and a comfortable full size sofa bed. The studio has it's own bathroom with shower. Please ask me about it when you book if you would like the extra accommodation. $60 additional per night.

Although this house is in the village area, its higher elevation and empty space on three sides give it that open desert feeling and great views. It's very peaceful and quiet. Quail, bunnies and sometimes the local roadrunner may pass by on their daily rounds.
Integrated Great Room and kitchen floor plan gives that extra spacious feeling. Enjoy the vaulted exposed beam ceiling, natural stone fireplace, two large comfy sofas, and queen-size daybed that sleeps two. In all this there's lots of cozy comfy spaces to relax in after a day of exploring local attractions. Large windows give endless panoramic views over the basin. The east facing windows take in the magnificent desert sunrise and a view of Copper Mountain. See the house lights in the basin twinkle in the dark night or look up at the clear skies and gaze at the Milky Way.
Sit out on the front porch or gaze through the huge picture window for a view over the Village of Joshua Tree. The kitchen window and back patio look out onto rugged BLM land that borders the National Park. The back patio has a gas BBQ grill and picnic tables that's ready to go for your outdoor cooking and dining.
The entire house has been uniquely remodeled recently for a clean modern feeling while preserving and incorporating aspects of the houses' late 1950's vintage. Tastefully furnished with modern vintage pieces and artwork made by local artists. The roomy kitchen is well equipped with lots of cooking supplies and all new appliances- gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen table expands to seat 10 people.
For a nearby adventure, just a short walk down the street is a not so well known place called Coyote Hole. There you'll find Native American petroglyphs and a small canyon with a natural spring. Coyote, bobcat, and even a mountain lion have been reported to roam this area.
Linens and towels are provided. There is a high quality front load washer and dryer. Hi-speed Wifi Internet also included.
Make your stay special. Come and experience all that Joshua Tree has to offer while staying in comfort at the Mountain Vista Desert Retreat.
