4 BR, 2 BA + a unique Dome. Luxury home + rustic, outdoor living.
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.

A hop and skip to Joshua Tree
The best thing about this house is the proximity to JTNP. There’s even a lovely hike just behind the house. The house itself is comfortable and includes many kitchen items/supplies for cooking, though it lacked sufficient coffee cups and spoons. As others have mentioned, the hot tub controls don’t seem well-defined. The oddest thing was that I had several questions and used the VRBO messaging but never got replies, perhaps because of the holidays. (We did get a message back after a call when our code for the house didn’t work.) Overall, a good place because of proximity to park and town.
Home with the Dome
My crew and I had a great time hiking all over Joshua Tree National Park then returning to John's house for home cooked meals and story telling in the hot tub. Every morning just before first light we were serenaded by the coyotes. Awesome vacation.
A Great Joshua Tree Experience
10 out of 10 would recommend staying here! The house was clean and has everything you need for comfort and entertainment. The front yard has a great view of the surrounding valley which makes it a good place to watch the sunrise/sunset.
Desert get away
Property is comfortable and spacious. We had plenty of room for two families. Only 2 minute drive away from the park. Owner was considerate and always accessible. Overall, great experience!!
Great stay, thanks.
Enjoyed a relaxing stay here for 2 nights in July. Very peaceful with great views over the valley, and amazing stars at night. Everything was just as advertised. Thanks a lot.
Overall, the stay was great. The location and property are both superb, and communication with the host was easy. There were a few things that were minor annoyances, such as the hot tub being turned off so it was cold rather than hot (I guess this is a summer thing, but made the hot tub basically unusable in the cooler evenings when we would have wanted to use it). There was also no cover for the hot tub, which led to a lot of dead critters floating in it. These things are obviously easy to rectify, and we brought the latter to the host's attention, though no cover was provided. I would recommend ensuring the hot tub is both covered and heated if it's a feature you're planning on using.
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.
Other Activities: rock climbing, hiking.
