About the Owner

After quitting our own business (Mark) and corporate job (me) and then selling our home with everything in it, we travelled the US in our motorhome for what came to be 6 wonderful years! We drove our motorhome to Joshua Tree about 7 years ago to visit friends and never left. It is a beautiful place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us experience your house. You have excellent taste in everything from fence design to dishes. We felt right at home. It was so great to sit on the patio in the morning and evenings. We loved cooking in the kitchen with every gadget we could need. This house really has everything to make a perfect weekend where all you need is a trip to the grocery store and some good sneakers. We loved hiking in the park and coming home to our Joshua Tree house away from home. We loved it!

GREAT!!!

The house was perfect, beautifully decorated, so peaceful. Quick five minute drive to the park, easy access to town, but still felt completely serene. We had a great time.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay at Sunset Terrace! Very clean and excellent accommodations. The family loved the hot tub after a long days hike at Joshua Tree National Park. Also enjoyed star gazing at night and beautiful sun rise in the morning. We did not want to leave! Would love to come back some day and stay longer! Thanks for everything.

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Our hot tubs are cleaned after every guest's stay so that the water is clean and ready for the next guests. There is nothing like soaking under the desert night sky! We hope to see you again~

Great Desert Trip!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend stay at Sunset Terrace! Christa was a wonderful host, making sure we had all we needed for our stay. Sunset Terrace was the perfect location for catching a show at Pappy and Harriette's on Saturday night and we spent our days in Joshua Tree National Park hiking. We will definitely be back again! Thanks for everything!

Surprisingly wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have loved Joshua Tree National Park for many years, but we've never stayed so close to it, which made it even more wonderful. We were surprised to have such a well cared for rental property, with a delightful masterful bedroom, perfect kitchen, and fun private hot tub. The fenced in yard was beautifully landscaped. The washer and dryer worked great, especially since we ended up washing our towels daily since two each were not quite enough for both the bathrooms and the hot tub. All laundry, hand, and dishwasher soap were nicely provided. We drove by the owners' other three rental properties, and we decided we would probably return to this one next time since it was close to town yet with plenty of private space and an easy drive to the Park.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Sunset Terrace house! The location is great for people who wish to feel peace and privacy but still would like to be able to make a quick trip into town without having to drive for many miles to do so. I also like that you get full sunrises and sunsets from this house. Thanks for your wonderful review and we hope to see you both again!

Location

From the Owner

Our Sunset Terrace rental was an original 'homestead' cabin that Mark added onto and made into a 3 bedroom/2 bath home. We fell in love with this property right away because of it's remote feel but close proximity to town and to the park.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Palm Springs at 30 Miles Car: recommended

Try something different like rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park! In May and October is the Joshua Tree Music Festival- both are amazing fun.

For the art seekers, check out High Desert Test sites, Open Studio Art Tours, Noah Purifoy outdoor museum, JTAG art gallery, 29 Palms art gallery.

For the the open minded, try the Integratron and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, Instant Karma yoga studio, BhaktiFest, ShaktiFest and the Joshua Tree Music Festival!

For the outdoor enthusiast there are lots of hikes in the park, the Andromeda Society for stargazing, Keys Ranch guided walking tour.

Amenities

From the Owner

We love the views from this home: full sunrises to the east, full sunsets to the west and a huge panoramic view of Joshua Tree National Park. There are also hundreds of Joshua Trees on the 5 acres that it sits on which is magical in and of itself. Having the Bartlett Mountains just behind the house is one of my favorite things as you can hike right to them and follow the trail that loops around the mountain; it is a wonderful place to view the National Park from afar with no people!
