About the Owner

I grew up in the small suburban town of Chappaqua, NY and have always enjoyed the outdoors, the arts, and sports. I later crossed coasts and attended UC Berkeley. I now work in Finance in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree is my favorite weekend escape.

My family and I love to travel and my philosophy in running vacation rentals is to bring together all the elements of what we enjoy most as discerning customers. We also receive some of our best ideas from former guests. I enjoy helping fellow travelers with their Joshua Tree getaways and you can expect a fast response time when contacting me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Listing was very accurate, easy to access, close to town, very clean and great for a medium sized party. Lots of living space, great updated kitchen, and plenty of space to relax in the lodge. This rental is great for exploring the desert & town and having a nice comfortable, spacious place to retreat to. Even a small case of bottled water in the fridge -- nice treat after a long day in the desert! Host was very communicative, extremely flexible & accommodating, and check in / check out process was super simple and straight forward! Would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Starlight Villas. The house was very neat and clean. The house/layout matched the listing's description and was perfect for our needs (note the pool table is not full-sized, but we enjoyed having it). We stayed there for a month, and it really felt like home. I was sad when it was time to leave. We stayed in the Starlight house. The guest room is nicely separated from the master suite, which was nice when our guests came to visit. While we stayed at starlight house, we think we'd be very happy staying at any of the villas/houses (not just starlight house. We talked to other guests who were there during our stay, and everyone seemed very happy with the villas.) Cliff, the owner, is very personable, and was able to help with any request we had. We also enjoyed the well-maintained hot tub every night. And the location was perfect for our daily trips into Joshua Tree National Park. We give it our recommendation, and we plan to stay again in the future.

Very comfortable spacious home

  • 5 of 5
Members of our extended family spent the weekend in the Starlight House on a visit to Joshua Tree, and it was comfortable home-away-from-home for all of us: two grandparents, our two grown daughters, two teen-aged grandsons and a baby. There was room for all, and lots of enjoyment of the pool table and the hot tub. The kitchen-living areas are spacious and well-furnished so there's room both to be together and to get away from one another. Excellent accommodations for anyone with a group, as long as you're willing to share the bedrooms, which have multiple beds and/or couches to sleep on. The owner is very friendly and helpful with requests; the town with food, stores, and the National Park Visitor Center is within walking distance; and the park itself is a short drive away. Highly recommended!,

Great getaway spot!

I had a fantastic experience with friends at Cliff's place. It was very clean and had all the amenities needed to make the vacation a very comfortable one. Location is excellent and the hot tub is a great additional perk. Most definitely planning on coming back.

Lots of space

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place to stay in Joshua Tree. Good central location for the Park and highway. Starlight Villas had great entertaining space for New Year's Eve - three different sitting areas and board games in the den closet. Very well equipped kitchen (but needed wine glasses) with lots of cookware and bakeware. Very comfortable beds. Extremely clean, well maintained and with some nice artistic touches (loved the floor in the fireplace area!). Spacious modern bathrooms. Cliff was very welcoming and keen to help out with anything we might need. Will definitely come back next time we want to stay in the area.

Owner's Response: Hi Frances! I'm glad you enjoyed the space, furnishings, and styling. I also really appreciate that you noticed the place being clean. I have dust allergies myself so I am very insistent on a very high standard for the between visitor cleanings. You are 100% correct that I need to add wine and champagne glasses and am going to get those first thing tomorrow and can ensure you they will be there next time you visit and for future guests! Thanks again for the nice review and helpful feedback. Cheers, Cliff

Very convenient stay in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5
We all really enjoyed our stay at the Starlight Villas. The house was very clean and easily held six of us for two nights. It was nice and quite and the hot tub was perfect for relaxing and watching the stars late at night. In terms of location it's great due to it's close proximity to the Joshua Tree Park entrance and the nearby Joshua Tree nightlife that's within walking distance. Cliff was welcoming and handled made sure we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Joshua Tree.
