A Gem!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the owner provided good customer service. He responded promptly, and that was great for us as this was somewhat of a last minute trip on our end.

This place is such a gem! The view of the house against the sunbaked mountain is gorgeous. The house was clean, inviting and very lovely. The AC works great! Clean stove and oven! The bed was comfortable and it was just perfect for our 2 night get-away.

We enjoyed walking up to the side of the house. It has a beautiful view of the valley, especially as the sun set.

There was a bag of bird feed by the door, so we decided to put some on the feeder in the courtyard. We enjoyed watching the numerous quails and other species of birds feast on the feed. We did not see coyotes but they howled like crazy at night. There were lots of squirrels that loved the bird food as well.

Our stay may have been short, but we enjoyed spending our quiet but oh so awesome 4th of July at this JT retreat. This is a place we could easily go back to. It is a beautiful place :-)

I just wanted to say your place in Joshua Tree was absolutely wonderful! Everything was just as I had envisioned and more! We found everything we needed for our little getaway with my 2 dear friends that I haven't seen in a long while. The telescope was also nice to use to capture the (almost) full moon...I will definitely like to go back there again sometime soon.

Rejuvenating retreat...

  • 5 of 5
First of all, this was my second time using HomeAway and even though I don't have a ton of experience with other owners, Gerhard made the process simpler than checking into a hotel room. The home was just as described and was spotless and fully stocked (even with a wide array of hot sauces, which we apppreciated).

The home and courtyard are situated in such a way that you can only see the (very few) neighbors from a few areas of the property. This provides guests with an abundance of privacy and peace and quiet. We spent our days hiking in the park, which was a 10 minute drive away, and our nights relaxing and stargazing by the fire in the courtyard. Groceries are a short 15 minute drive away in Yucca Valley and the town of Joshua Tree is less than 2 miles away.

I would recommend this home for anyone seeking seclusion and relaxation or even a home base for adventures in the park nearby. In fact, we liked it so much that we arranged with Gerhard to stay an extra night. He is very responsive and made our stay very pleasant.

You Will Not Find Any Better

  • 5 of 5
You will simply find no better place than this place if you want to get away from the city for a few days. Absolute privacy and seclusion. Perfect for a small retreat and meditation. Amazing view of the rocky hills behind you, and once you climb the hill a little you get an amazing view of the Yucca Valley. Very nicely architectually built house, modern style, cozy and classy - you get a feeling that the owner built it to live in it himself. Very nicely furnished, clean and well-maintained. The owner is very generous with what he has provided, so you won't miss a thing. It was great doing business with him.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully designed and comfortable home was exactly what we wanted. Only 7 miles from the west entrance to Joshua Tree NP and only a few miles from restaurants, grocery and drug stores, yet I felt like we were truly away from it all as the house is tucked away from neighboring homes. Property was very clean, well equipped, and everything was in working order. The bed was very comfy and with two different types of AC systems, I stayed nice and cool (important for me!) The house has a courtyard and we were delighted to see mommy, daddy and baby quail running up and down the courtyard steps. We enjoyed the spectacular sunsets and star-filled night sky. Did some hiking in the NP and around the neighborhood. Also took in a movie in nearby Yucca Valley. Saw lots of wildlife including rabbits, roadrunners, dove, ground squirrels, coyote and those absolutely adorable baby quail. The owner was wonderful to work with and responded to all my inquiries promptly. I highly recommend this property to not only my family and friends, but also to the readers of this review. Next time I'm in Joshua Tree, this is the place I will stay.
