Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - Rancho Loco

House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rancho Loco is perfect for your desert hideaway home away from home. Come rain or shine, Rancho Loco has something beautiful to offer. When it's sunny, drinks by the pool, quiet time on the veranda with a book, watching the sun rise or set and enjoying some good barbecue with friends and family. When it's stormy – get cozy on the couch with a fire crackling away, a home cooked meal with a glass of wine while you watch the clouds roll in over the dramatic landscape, framed by the huge picture windows. Rancho Loco also affords extra privacy with separate living quarters, the cozy & bright main house and the open & airy studio.

Located on its own secluded 20 acres, minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Rancho Loco offers 360º views with over 50 Joshua trees, yuccas and native desert foliage all on the property. Situated between the two houses is a salt water swimming pool with an observation deck, perfect for sunset viewing, outdoor dining, and maybe even a skinny dip under the stars. Rancho Loco is a rustic modern take of a 1920s ranch house updated to today's standards including solar power as its primary source of energy and water drawn from a private on-site well!

Rancho Loco is a great affordable base no matter what your interests are – rock-climbing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, model rocket launching [our fave], novel writing or just relaxing by the pool. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to get away and visit this magical California vacation home location.

About Marcus Wright

We, Karen and Marcus, have lived in Los Angeles since 1990 and take great joy and pride in making things better.

Marcus Wright purchased this house in 2001

Why Marcus Wright chose Joshua Tree

We purchased this property after many years of traveling to Joshua Tree as a get-away. It became our home away from home with the space, privacy and solitude that was hard to come by in Los Angeles. The idea of a two hour car drive putting you in a different world creates an invaluable peace of mind.

What makes this house unique

More than just a base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area, Rancho Loco is a self-contained resort. It provides all the comforts of home in a spectacular setting. Unlike many vacation homes in Joshua Tree, Rancho Loco provides a year round experience due to the salt water pool, which provides the remarkable sensation of cool blue water beneath the hot summer sun and the limitless night skies.

Rancho Loco

My buddies and I had such a great time at this very secluded house in Joshua Tree. The place was clean, easy to find and very comfortable. The pool was nice, but boy was it cold! I imagine it would've been nice had the temp been in the triple digits but it was a very mild 80 or less that weekend. I will definitely, for sure, be back if I can get away again!

Even Better Than the Pictures!

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I recently stayed here for the weekend. We were more than happy with everything! Even when booking, coordinating the reservation with Marcus was very easy. He was very friendly and always quick to respond.

The house is on a great plot of land that's very secluded. The views from anywhere on the property are gorgeous. There is a ton of furniture and many places for people to sleep...not to mention it's very stylishly decorated. There is the main house and studio/guest house area. Both have TVs and are furnished but we spent most of our time outside. The pool was a little chilly but that's definitely not a problem in the desert heat.

In the evening, we BBQ-ed outside and ate at the large dining room table. Afterwards, we would go outside to enjoy the gorgeous view of the stars. If you want a true Joshua Tree experience, this is the place for you. It's also priced at a stellar rate.

Thank you for such a fun weekend! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Desert Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
Simply the perfect desert getaway, pool included. Owners were kind & easy to communicate with, instructions on how to utilize the house (pool, grill, guest house, WiFi, etc) were clear & easy to follow. The house itself was the perfect size - two people in the guest house and two people in the main house. The pool was the ultimate relaxation station after a long day of hiking in the National Park. We really enjoyed everything and can't wait to come back!!

Amazing Desert Oasis

  • 5 out of 5
This house exceeded our expectations and imagination! We were a group of 7 women (2 of whom were quite pregnant) and there was plenty of comfortable sleeping space for all of us. As my first time to Joshua Tree, I couldn't have asked for a better place to be - the house has all the modern amenities you'd ever need - you won't want to leave! The pool was clean and SO refreshing and the views of the sunrise and sunset over the desert mountains were breathtaking. The grill worked great and we had everything we needed from the kitchen in regards to cooking. At night we counted 8 shooting stars and one comet! Truly a magical place - I can't wait to visit again.

A wonderful desert getaway

  • 5 out of 5
This place was great! It had all the appliances necessary for cooking, beautiful open spaces to enjoy time with everyone and comfortable spaces to relax. I was there with a group of woman for a girls weekend and it was perfect. We never left, other than for a few walks from the property. The pool was heavenly and there was plenty of space to enjoy time together and time alone. We had views of the mountains and the stars at night, it really could not have been any better.

Lovely Vacation House

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful house out in Joshua Tree. Great place to spend with loved ones. Has everything one can possibly need to enjoy a hot, sunny day or a winter-like, chilly day. Love the surround system for music, simply adds to your experience there. Definitely recommend this home to anyone seeking a nice getaway in a quiet, serene place.
