Just Awesome

  • 5 out of 5
Three of us spent a week in this awesome old cottage. Everything was as advertised and more. Our only regret was that we didn't spend more time there. Our mission was to see as much of Joshua Tree NP as we could so we only got to enjoy the great front porch for early morning coffee or evening cocktail which was always near or after sundown. Would have loved to walk the canyon right behind the cottage. Beautiful scenery. Met and talked a while with Cheryl and her husband John. They were great to talk with and were a wealth of info on the area and the history of the cottage . All three of us enjoyed the conversation immensely. Cheryl even loaned us a cooler for our car travels and let me access her Wi-Fi in a slight emergency I had. Can't thank them enough for a great time and place to stay. The cottage is stocked with all sorts of info and maps of things to see and do and Cheryl always had an answer for all our questions. It's also stocked with everything you would have at home, not a rental. I think the kitchen might be better stocked than my house. We wish we could have seen the tortoise but didn't. We watched for him every day but never saw him. Did see a good size snake on the bottom of the driveway and many birds around and we heard several Coyotes howling. The stars at night were amazing since there is no ambient light to spoil them. My wife and I are hoping to return in the fall to finish the park and spend some more time relaxing at the cottage this time. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area, much better and more peaceful than any hotel or motel and the price is very reasonable. Thanks again Cheryl!

Spectacular

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in several VRBO locations, but none as well appointed, comfortable and truly spectacular views! We were "at home" the minute we arrived. Clean, quiet, comfortable, well stocked, right down to two drawers full of DVD's and several book cases of books! Wonderful hiking in our own private back desert, and the Palm Springs shopping just a short drive away. We really hated leaving and most definitely will return. Most reasonable priced, yet most comfortable!

Private, Quiet, Fully Equipped Kitchen

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week to celebrate our 39 wedding anniversary. The house was exactly what we expected from the description and more. The kitchen was fully equipped with many of the sundry things you need when travelling for a week - mustards, cooking oil, tea and coffee and sugar and many spices. We enjoyed a morning of hail which made the whole place magical with the white stuff sticking around for many hours. Not quite what we were expecting but we were snug and warm and had a reading and relaxing day. The home is so close to Joshua Tree National Monument which was great with the short winter days. We very much enjoyed staying here and would plan to return. Thanks Cheryl for leaving such a spotless home to enjoy.

The Perfect Desert Escape

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I were looking for a quite desert vacation rental close to Joshua Tree National Park and found it here. The home is really comfortable and well equipped. The location is very quiet and the night sky looks amazing from here. What a great place for unwinding and relaxing. We only stayed two nights but were so refreshed at the end of the short trip, it felt like we’d stayed longer. We will definitely be returning.

Super private & quiet country cottage

Super private & quiet country cottage
  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at what we are calling "Grandmas Cottage"! As other guests have mentioned it is SUPER clean & well kept & just feels very "homey". Also the word "cottage" might be misleading - the rooms are large & airy. Very private location but only 15 minutes (max) from restaurants & shops. Cheryl left the AC on for our arrival which was great as it was HOT outside (but plenty cool indoors). We just had a very relaxing couple of days and are looking forward to a trip back. One note: the house is a couple hundred yards down a somewhat bumpy dirt road - no big deal once you've driven it one time but its helpful to know that in advance - other than that minor detail we just loved everything about our stay there - thanks Cheryl!

Great location

  • 5 out of 5
Super clean. Great location. Wonderful hosts.
This comfy home is in the high desert. Great place to take a telescope to enjoy the night skies or a good book to enjoy the relaxing porch swing.
Next time I will bring steaks and use the nice barbecue.
