Amazing get away
I took my kids here to celebrate my sons high school graduation. We live in LA so it was a short two hour drive. The directions were easy to understand. Be careful to follow them closely though because my son who went in his own car followed google maps and ended up going up a very steep dirt road and scraped the underneath of his car. The house is amazing on five actes of beautiful land up high overlooking the entire canyon. Its very private and right up against the hill. We enjoyed gazing out at the sunset, star gazing in the hot tub at night and cooling off after hiking. Its very close to the park. The dome is very hip and the kids took took turns sleeping in it. The main house is very big and clean. We loved the open concept kitchen and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. We grilled our dinners outside and had smores on the campfire! Couldn’t have asked for more.
Amazing property, perfect for families
I’ve stayed in VRBOs all over the world and this house was the most equipt home I’ve stayed in. Everything you could need is provided. We stayed during Covid & the cleaners were sterilizing up until the minute we got there. It was extremely clean! The kids loves sleeping in the dome and also the fire pit outside. We hiked behind the property several times which was awesome! The view is gorgeous and the proximity to the national park makes it extremely easy. We will be back for sure!
A great spot to stay when visiting Joshua Tree National Park.
A hop and skip to Joshua Tree
The best thing about this house is the proximity to JTNP. There’s even a lovely hike just behind the house. The house itself is comfortable and includes many kitchen items/supplies for cooking, though it lacked sufficient coffee cups and spoons. As others have mentioned, the hot tub controls don’t seem well-defined. The oddest thing was that I had several questions and used the VRBO messaging but never got replies, perhaps because of the holidays. (We did get a message back after a call when our code for the house didn’t work.) Overall, a good place because of proximity to park and town.
Home with the Dome
My crew and I had a great time hiking all over Joshua Tree National Park then returning to John's house for home cooked meals and story telling in the hot tub. Every morning just before first light we were serenaded by the coyotes. Awesome vacation.
We are located just one mile from West Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and all it has to offer for hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding and exploring.
It is an easy drive to museums, golf, shopping, art galleries and even southern California's famous theme parks. Great local restaurants are nearby for a night out. We are only 45 minutes from Palm Springs and all it has to offer. The Desert House is an excellent vacation rental with something for everyone.
Other Activities: rock climbing, hiking.
We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it and so will you! It's so quiet and peaceful and the lovely views change as the sun moves across the sky. We never tire of visiting and we hope you won't either.
John purchased this House in 1998
