Property Details

Updated: May 26, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Leave your troubles behind and bask in the beauty of nature. The National Park begins a short walk up the road. Enjoy stunning hiking trails into a desirable, but little known area of (south) Joshua Tree.

Perfect as a romantic couples getaway or for a group. By evening cozy up to a crackling fire. Cook your meals in the well-equipped kitchen and snuggle into soft covers by night. There are ample fresh linens for a party of six. In the morning sip fresh brewed coffee while staring into expansive vistas in every direction. The large picture windows overlook far away mountains and desert that can also be enjoyed from outdoor tables and chairs. This cozy two bedroom one bath house is all newly refurbished. Outdoor area includes barbecue.

Located near Harrison House, a straw bale artist retreat that is, at times, also available.

Lovely quiet desert hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a weekend visit to the Morongo Basin and Joshua Tree National Park. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood with the border of Joshua Tree National Park at the end of the street. :-). The property manager was very friendly and responsive to the couple of questions we had .

Grea desert getaway

  • 5 of 5
Comfortable and relaxing and clean. Convenient for a lot of sight-seeing both in Joshua Tree Park and the surrounding areas. While there, we spent a day at the park, a day hiking Morongo Canyon, an evening in Palm Desert taking in a concert, visited Mt Palomar, Hoover Dam the Living Desert Zoo and Botanical Garden and the Salton Sea. Panorama house was great to come back to after a busy day and with a large fridge and a well-equipped kitchen, meals were not an issue. The owner graciously had sent us a list of shopping areas so we were not at sea. We would return in a heartbeat.

Style and Substance Meet Sublime Setting

A trip to Joshua Tree for the first time -- and this perfect desert getaway fits the bill. The two-bedroom stylish layout is ideal for 2-4 and the living room and kitchen provide that home spun feel. Make sure you walk around the road and see some of the astonishing architecture and views of the valley before heading into the park.

A very nice home base for exploring the park

I've rented this house twice now. It's a terrific place to stay when visiting the Park. It's close to both Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms for supply runs; it's very nicely decorated, with lots of art throughout the house; the furniture is all very comfortable; it's not too close to neighboring houses, so it's very quiet with a feeling of privacy; and it has all the necessary amenities, including a fireplace, which comes in handy on cooler evenings.

We had a short, one night stay at Panorama 2-it was perfect for our needs, as a base for a family party we were attending. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, it was peaceful and there were nice outdoor areas to sit and read and relax. The owner was very helpful and accommodating, making sure we got the best place for our stay. I would stay again!
