Off the Beaten Path & on the Grid - Rustic & Remote 5 Acre Retreat!

Off the Beaten Path & on the Grid - Rustic & Remote 5 Acre Retreat!


Property Details

Updated: Apr 30, 2015
Endless Views to Ntl Park Border & Valley! 2Br 2 Bath, 1725 sq ft house

Do you like 5 star hotels and/or fastidiously clean & swanky vaca rentals with every aspect of a place dialed in from beds made to a tee, mints on the pillows, cable T.V., staff at your beckon call & owners that jump when you say so? Well, then this is NOT, & we repeat, NOT the place for YOU! Only one 5 star hotel even exists in Joshua Tree and they have 3 rooms total and it's only $350.00 + a night for a room for 1-2 people, so if that's your thing, PLEASE, PLEASE go for it, or stay in palm springs at the Viceroy, but please do us all a favor and don't stay here. We are booked solid with people who appreciate what Hacienda Refugio has to offer in all its and our (for that matter) rustic & imperfect glory!

This is a desert retreat, this rustic hacienda style home is located 3 miles out on a dirt rd in North Joshua Tree. Hacienda Refugio is a secluded, comfortable, spacious (yet rustic & remote) home on 5 acres.

Enjoy star filled nights encompassed by abounding open desert. Astounding views to the valley and National Park border. Enjoy solitude and all the desert has to offer. The house is comfortable and large, great for groups of friends or family gatherings.

We hope you will visit soon!

We love this place!

This rental property was exactly suited to our needs. We climbed in Joshua Tree so the location of the house was perfect. The house was clean, well stocked with necessities and very comfortable. The owner was genuinely concerned about us and our satisfaction. It was clear to see the pride he has in his property. We would highly recommend this property to others and will definitely return to stay here, again.

From the Owner

We purchased the Hacienda El Refugio because we knew the stunning views, quiet area (all you hear are the quail & coyotes at night) proximity to Joshua Tree National Park & unique interior features would make the awesome vacation rental/get away/retreat that it is!
