vacation rental description

A mile up a dirt road and twenty thousand miles from the cares of the world, the True World Bungalow is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Originally part of the Mojave Rock Ranch Resort, the bungalow is the epitome of “Joshua Tree Style”, in which rustic, artistic and luxury elements combine in unexpected and delightful ways.

As you enter the front gate, you will be greeted by the bottle wall fish pond and blooming water lilies in season. There are private patios in the front and back, perfect for sunrise coffee and sunset cocktails. The bungalow shares a five acre property with the owner’s home, and backs up to over 150 acres of desert wilderness, so you can literally hike out your door and explore a vast landscape of boulders, abandoned claim shacks and wildlife habitat.

The bungalow has two sunny bedrooms (one king, one queen), nicely appointed with down comforters, original artworks, plenty of closet space and views for miles. The custom woodstove (a work of art in itself) will keep you toasty on cool evenings and the sweet retro kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a feast. Enjoy complimentary wi-fi, DVDs on the flat screen TV, or music from the CD player (or your iPod). In warm weather you can relax under the trees in the cowboy spa, laze in the hammock, or enjoy air-conditioned comfort indoors. And in every season you can count on star-filled nights, 50 mile views of Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. San Jacinto and up close and personal encounters with a myriad of desert wildlife.

Joshua Tree National Park Visitors Center is 10 minutes away in the artists’ community of Joshua Tree, where you can also explore the galleries and shops and grab a bite to eat. Please feel free to ask your hosts for suggestions or to arrange special trips, from rock climbing, trail riding, guided hikes and night sky viewing venues to massage, yoga, and spa treatments and visits to local artists' studios.

Our calendar is always kept up to date so you can check availabiltiy before making your inquiry. Please call or email with any questions – we look forward to your visit!

traveler reviews for this joshua tree house rental

Dogs love this place

Review submitted: December 6, 2013   Date of arrival: November 26, 2013

This was our second time staying at the True World Bungalow. We enjoy hiking with our dogs. Bonnie and George have been very helpful in suggesting sites where we could take the dogs off lead. Brody (resident dog) is very welcoming to visitors both human and canine. The bungalow is in a rural area with dirt roads to explore and get away from the crowds, especially for those with 4WD. The yard is fenced, however, for just relaxing at the bungalow. The bungalow was very creatively designed, decorated, and maintained. A beautiful spot to spend quiet, private time.

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

Magical Place

Review submitted: November 11, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

From the moment we drove up the driveway and saw the red bungalow, we knew this would be a magical place. What a gift is was to find you through Homeaway and to discover that you are friends with 2 of our favorite people. Wish we could have spend more time with you both (and Brodie!) but the park trumps everything!
