vacation rental description

This is a unique house created by a sculptor, and master builder. It is made of many found things, rock and glass. The house if filled with local artist paintings and sculpture. It has three bedrooms 2.5 baths and a heated rock cowboy tub. It is nestled into the back hills boardering the national park and sits on the Joshua Tree butte with a view of the Morongo basin and Big Bear Mountain area. The master bedroom contains a queen size bed and a master bath with sunken tub, the guest bath has a claw tub, and unique stone shower. The guest room has a queen size bed and private entrance. The secondary guest has a single bed. There is an additional half bath. There is a large fire place in the living room with cathedral-esque ceilings, and a 25 foot sofa made of rock and comfortably cushioned. There is another fire place in the front family room, and 3 wood stoves through out the house. There are gas heaters mounted on the walls, and floor heat. The cooling is by evaporative cooler. The house is unique and fun, but check out the New York Times article on the creator and his house just google Randy Polumbo New York Times, and click on 'On location...Cutting Loose in the California Desert.'

You can spend early evenings in the heated cowboy tub, among the rocks, after hiking, rock climbing, or just driving through the gorgeous Joshua Tree Park.

There are restaurants, art galleries, live theatre, music festivals, and we are only 25 minutes from Desert Hot Springs and its famous hot tubs and pool where you can spend the day for one small price.

Further we are 35 minutes from Palm Springs its airport, spas, golf courses, arts and culture.

The Salton Sea is an 1 1/2 hrs away with fishing, swimming, and boating. LA and the Ocean communities are 2 1/2 hrs away for a great day trip.

The Wild Flower season is in the spring, and everything is in bloom, and people come from all over the country to see it. The fall and winter the area is a mecca for the rock climbers and mild weather fans. So, spend a week or a weekend in this rock and glass getaway.

traveler reviews for this joshua tree house rental

Amazing place

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

So secluded and cool. There's all this rad art on the wall. Every room has something to catch your eye nearly every time you go in. Great fire pit. Great rocks. This place was made for mushrooms.
