SECLUDED 20 ACRE RETREAT WITH GUEST HOUSE AND POOL

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.

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

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.

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.

Total Relaxation

This is a great place to relax! Marcus is so professional and helpful. The house is far enough away to relax and close enough to town for a trip to the store or dinner out. There is only a TV in the back house which didn't matter to us - but might to some. Great amenities.

Excellent experience

Our stay was wonderful. The house is beautiful, bright, well kept and clean, the kitchen has everything you need, the beds are comfortable, the patio is nice and private, and dogs are allowed!. The only two drawbacks: pool is ice cold (although we were there at the start of the off season) and I wish the rooms were explained a little better on the website.

Overall though, I highly recommend this property and hope to visit it again soon.

rancho loco is just perfect!

we recently stayed here for 4 days in amazing, sunny, clear desert weather. the owner marcus was so easy & flexible to make reservations through. we thoroughly enjoyed the house - salt water pool, lots of outdoor seating, great kitchen (w/ gas & charcoal grill in the backyard) & even a wonderful centralized music/speaker system. the house is well-equipped & very clean. house stays nice & cool w/ ac and/or ceiling fans throughout. we also enjoyed some desert strolls & rock climbing in the area.

we had 8 adults (3 couples, 2 singles) stay & sleep comfortably. the views morning & night are beautiful. the area is super quiet day & night, as there are no neighbors close by.

this home is definitely a gem & exactly what we were looking for. we can't wait to return to rancho loco. thank u, marcus!

Rancho Perfecto

My girlfriend and I rented Marcus' remarkable compound as a pre-wedding present for my cousin and his fiancé, and the four of us spent an unforgettable Sunday and Monday there in late June.

As newly minted adults who at some point in the last couple of years stopped shooting tequila and began making tartare, this home had the formidable kitchen we responsibly desired and the pool area we had no trouble enjoying. I hate cliche's, so I'll just say that it was the best of both worlds, and that we truly had our cake and ate it too.

I'll let everyone else remark on the cleanliness of the home and Marcus' warm and personable nature - I'll just say that we will be back next year and hopefully every year after, even when we only have 36 hours to spare.
