Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rancho Loco is perfect for your desert hideaway home away from home. Come rain or shine, Rancho Loco has something beautiful to offer. When it's sunny, drinks by the pool, quiet time on the veranda with a book, watching the sun rise or set and enjoying some good barbecue with friends and family. When it's stormy – get cozy on the couch with a fire crackling away, a home cooked meal with a glass of wine while you watch the clouds roll in over the dramatic landscape, framed by the huge picture windows. Rancho Loco also affords extra privacy with separate living quarters, the cozy & bright main house and the open & airy studio.

Located on its own secluded 20 acres, minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Rancho Loco offers 360º views with over 50 Joshua trees, yuccas and native desert foliage all on the property. Situated between the two houses is a salt water swimming pool with an observation deck, perfect for sunset viewing, outdoor dining, and maybe even a skinny dip under the stars. Rancho Loco is a rustic modern take of a 1920s ranch house updated to today's standards including solar power as its primary source of energy and water drawn from a private on-site well!

Rancho Loco is a great affordable base no matter what your interests are – rock-climbing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, model rocket launching [our fave], novel writing or just relaxing by the pool. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to get away and visit this magical California vacation home location.

Amazing Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5
This house exceeded our expectations and imagination! We were a group of 7 women (2 of whom were quite pregnant) and there was plenty of comfortable sleeping space for all of us. As my first time to Joshua Tree, I couldn't have asked for a better place to be - the house has all the modern amenities you'd ever need - you won't want to leave! The pool was clean and SO refreshing and the views of the sunrise and sunset over the desert mountains were breathtaking. The grill worked great and we had everything we needed from the kitchen in regards to cooking. At night we counted 8 shooting stars and one comet! Truly a magical place - I can't wait to visit again.

A wonderful desert getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place was great! It had all the appliances necessary for cooking, beautiful open spaces to enjoy time with everyone and comfortable spaces to relax. I was there with a group of woman for a girls weekend and it was perfect. We never left, other than for a few walks from the property. The pool was heavenly and there was plenty of space to enjoy time together and time alone. We had views of the mountains and the stars at night, it really could not have been any better.

Lovely Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house out in Joshua Tree. Great place to spend with loved ones. Has everything one can possibly need to enjoy a hot, sunny day or a winter-like, chilly day. Love the surround system for music, simply adds to your experience there. Definitely recommend this home to anyone seeking a nice getaway in a quiet, serene place.

Made us want our own place in Joshua Tree!

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most memorable mini-vacations we have ever taken. There were so many plus points to this place, so I will start with just our top few.
Firstly, the location was perfect - close up to JT National Park and the town of Joshua Tree to be able to go when we wanted yet remote enough to feel like you're staying in the desert. Having no neighbours around was amazing, no light pollution (the stars were so bright we could even make out Mars' red colour!) and a complete sense of feeling isolated, but in a good way. Going for a run in the morning along the dirt roads that connect Rancho Loco to civilization, I saw all kinds of wildlife and not one person. Infact, we didn't see one person the entire time we were staying there.
Secondly, the house had everything you needed for this kind of trip. Although the pool was still freezing in early April, we were brave enough to take a few quick dips and it was refreshing to cool off from the sun. If we were cold, we could light a fire, if we were warm, the AC was perfect.
The place blended the desert with the comforts of a home. We love the desert and if we don't buy our own place out in JT, we will be going back!

Location

From the Owner

We purchased this property after many years of traveling to Joshua Tree as a get-away. It became our home away from home with the space, privacy and solitude that was hard to come by in Los Angeles. The idea of a two hour car drive putting you in a different world creates an invaluable peace of mind.

Activity and Interests

Year round Joshua Tree activities and festivals, Big Bear is an hour away for skiing and lake activities, Palm Springs and Palm Desert communities, airport, shopping, and aerial tram within one hour drive, Las Vegas is just under 4 hours away for gambling and whatever else floats your boat, Los Angeles is just over a two hour drive.

Amenities

From the Owner

More than just a base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area, Rancho Loco is a self-contained resort. It provides all the comforts of home in a spectacular setting. Unlike many vacation homes in Joshua Tree, Rancho Loco provides a year round experience due to the salt water pool, which provides the remarkable sensation of cool blue water beneath the hot summer sun and the limitless night skies.
