We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it and so will you! It's so quiet and peaceful and the lovely views change as the sun moves across the sky. We never tire of visiting and we hope you won't either.

We traveled from Brooklyn, NY for a wedding. We loved staying here, it has all the comforts of home, a gorgeous view and veyr nice home owners. Thank your for making our stay very amazing.
Great location to the park. Quiet surroundings watching gambel quail every morning and listening to coyotes howl as we slept in the glamping tent. Good view of the milky way once the moon set. Hot tub was relaxing after long hikes.
This house has a location that cannot be beaten. It has amazing views down the valley it's quick to get into town. The backyard is your own mini personal national park and you are 1 mile from the actual park boundary. The house itself is very comfortable with memory foam mattresses; a well-equipped kitchen; a hammock; a fire pit; a hot tub and overall the bathrooms are in good shape too. I can't think of anything I would want to improve. In the morning you can eat breakfast outside and watch the sun come up. During the day you are likely in the park, and in the evenings you can enjoy the fire pit and look at the stars. We had an incredible seven days here and and the owner and property manager were also very easy to deal with. One bonus that we had not anticipated was the backyard. There are no other houses find this one and with our two young kids we went on several short hikes up the hill and over boulders to look at the views. It made a fantastic day even better. We cooked all our meals in the house and it worked very well indeed.
The property was recently renovated and the owners put a lot of attention to detail in. We had a great time, thank you!
We stayed at this house for 4 days over Christmas and loved it. The owners had just finished updating the house and all the updates are excellent. The dome is amazing. The beds are extremely comfortable. We went to Joshua tree each day and it was very conveniently located. Overall the house and the owners were a pleasure and we would be happy to stay here again. I highly recommend it.
We had a fun weekend climbing in Joshua Tree. The weather was cold and windy but we had a delightful time at the Desert House
Laura was great getting back to me when I needed clarity about the pricing and dates.
The property was exactly as described. Perfect location. Easy drive into town & easy access to the Park. We enjoyed short hikes in the Park with our parents in their 80's and longer hikes for us middle aged folks. The first day of our stay it rained, so we made a day of it; driving through the Park and going to Palm Springs to sample the famous date shake.
It was helpful to have information about how everything functioned; in the welcome folder and the little signs here and there in the house.
Our extended family each had their own bedroom (the quality of the linens was appreciated), the kitchen was great (for serious cooks), we marveled at the high performing awesome dishwasher, we were happy there was a grill and charcoal and the large couches created a sweet conversation area (we rearranged them for our stay - and put them back of course). It was especially nice to have a washer and dryer since we were coming from 5 days of rustic tent camping. The hot tub delivered the milky way and bright star filled sky.
When the power went out for many hours one evening/night it was super good to have 2 easy-to-find functioning flash lights.
It was very useful to have a "before you leave" check list.
We had a lovely time.
P.S. Check out the solid marble "Party Cat" in the neighborhood. Just plain weird.
We are located just one mile from West Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and all it has to offer for hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding and exploring.
It is an easy drive to museums, golf, shopping, art galleries and even southern California's famous theme parks. Great local restaurants are nearby for a night out. We are only 45 minutes from Palm Springs and all it has to offer. The Desert House is an excellent vacation rental with something for everyone.
