Remote & Rustic 5 Acre Hacienda!


Property Details

Updated: Oct 7, 2016
Endless Views to National Park & Valley! 2Br 2 Bath + bonus room

Do you like dialed in and swanky vaca rentals, cable T.V., a staff at your beckon call & owners that jump when you say so? Well then, Hacienda Refugio is NOT & we repeat, NOT the place for YOU, so, if that's your thing, thats cool, but PLEASE, PLEASE do us all a giant favor and do not stay at our place. We are booked solid with people who appreciate what Hacienda Refugio has to offer in all its (and for that matter our) rustic & imperfect glory!

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 & very 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!
