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

Cliff was a super welcoming host from our first contact, and he gave us prompt and detailed instructions on how to find the house, enter it properly and enjoy it to the fullest extent. Everything advertised was in the house and in great working order - from the pool table to the newly renovated kitchen and in unit washer/dryer (very helpful for drying towels between our shower and hot tub sessions)! My friends and I had a great time and will absolutely be using this location again for our next climbing trip to Joshua Tree.

Comfortable Clean Good Value

  • 5 of 5
Charming home with all the amenities necessary to enjoy a hiking vacation while dining in and entertainment without going out. We really enjoyed the house. My daughter and I played pool for the first time together and some serious Uno. Great fun! I actually grilled burgers, which is something my husband usually takes over. Especially want to thank for the tip to visit the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve. Our hike there and picnic is one if the highlights of my trip! The only disappointment was we thought the hot tub was private to the house, and instead is located in a central open area. Other than that, a great family gathering spot convenient to town and close to Joshua Tree park entrance.

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathi, I'm really glad you were happy with your extended stay at the Starlight House and enjoyed the hot tub! It was a pleasure meeting you as well and you are always welcome at the Villas. Regards, Cliff

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!,
