vacation rental description

Joshua Tree Getaway

Finish your novel, play electric guitar outdoors, watch movies, renew vows, or just bliss out in the hot tub and shake your city blues.

Built in 1963, this rustic modern 980 square ft. ranchette has an airy floor plan, big windows, concrete floors, exposed beam ceilings and tons of privacy. It's a comfy place to stay a while and dig into creative projects in the peace and quiet of open space, eclectic vintage modern furnishings and artisan objects. Located on partially fenced acreage on a sparsely populated mesa, this getaway offers sweeping views of Joshua Tree National Park and Copper Mountain. Achieve clarity by looking out of big picture windows to catch the sun or moon rising over the foothills below. Step out onto the patio for starry night skies. Ten minute access to the park encourages spontaneous natural outings. Or get into local culture: the town of Joshua Tree is only five minutes away.

The kitchen comes (equipped by foodies!) with cookware and inspiring cookbooks. You'll find an assortment of cooking oils, spices, coffee, teas, and other staples to get you started. Basic cable, wi-fi plus an assortment of CDs and DVDs are provided for days when you just don't feel like leaving the house. The house is ideally suited for one person or a couple but should friends arrive for a sleep-over, extra bedding and beds are stashed in the closet.

Nestled in the shade of the roomy back porch, the jetted hot tub awaits tired hikers in need of rejuvenation, and stressed city dwellers in need of a calming soak. A xeric garden represents a sampling of yuccas, agaves, acacias, and various cactii from deserts around the world.

Over half of Getaway visitors are return guests, with multiple return stays of up to four months.

The surrounding area caters to a wide range of interests: athletic (world class rock climbing and trail running in addition to hiking, and horseback riding for all levels); musical (clubs and outdoor festivals); artistic (endless photo ops whether your slant is scenic or ironic); consumer (shopping from junking to better mid-century furnishings, cowboy stores, designer outlet malls, and a couple of fantastic nurseries); culinary (cute weekly farmer’s market, two health food stores and a wonderfully edited gourmet shop all supplement the standard grocery fare), mystic (retreats, drumming circles, Buddhist Temple and at least one UFO vortex); and cultural (earnest live theatre and friendly art galleries).

Finally, if grandma comes to visit with her lady friends from the biker club, and if you are feeling either lucky or tired of peaceful isolation, a short trip to Morongo in the lower desert for a little casino action always makes for a bit of lowbrow fun.

This house is priced to encourage longer-term stays. Sit a spell, or come and go! With lots of space in the closet and garage, this is a spot to make yourself completely at home.

Amenities: One bedroom with large closet, one bath with tub and shower, wood burning stove, air conditioning (evaporative water), portable heaters, large outdoor fire pit, Weber BBQ, washer/dryer, free internet, satellite TV + DVD, CD player, new kitchen appliances (fridge, electric stove and oven) including espresso machine, pots and pans, blender, food processor, microwave, and utensils; extra linens, blankets, fluffy pillows, fat down comforters, king-sized bed w/ memory foam plus two guest beds for slumber parties; belize II oval hot tub, roomy and secure double garage for storage, parking, or tinkering.

Sorry, but we no longer take pets at this home.

traveler reviews for this joshua tree house rental

Perfect!

Review submitted: July 6, 2014   Date of arrival: July 2, 2014

What a perfect getaway. I really love how thoughtfully decorated the house was. It really feels like a southwestern style home and not just a rental with a bunch of ikea furniture thrown in. The owner also makes the process easy and worry free.

Wedding Night

Review submitted: September 16, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2012

Miriam's place is the bomb. We have stayed here several times and none more special then our wedding night. The views, the design and the vibe are all we could hope for. What a special place

Lush, serene, exquisite – 5 star fantastic!

Review submitted: September 12, 2013   Date of arrival: September 7, 2013

I always read the reviews on VRBO before booking – there’s a reason this house consistently gets 5 star reviews. It’s amazing! From the moment we walked in the door we felt embraced by this house - it's beguiling, eclectic and comfortable in a way that instantly feels welcoming. And it’s immaculate. The house is spacious, the bed deliciously comfortable (king size!), the kitchen generously stocked and the bathroom delightful with a wonderful yellow ceiling. The surrounding property is absolutely fantastic. The garden is spectacular- exuberant and soothing at the same time. We loved being on the mesa with its wide-open vistas, enclosed in the sanctuary of Miriam’s garden and home. We will definitely be back and next time for much longer; this special place is meant for long, lingering visits. And finally - to top it all off - Miriam is a delight, one of the best VRBO hosts ever.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I'm blushing. Since I don't like to bother guests by soliciting reviews, thank you a million times over!
