Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Joshua Tree - Casita De La Luna

Cool, immaculate, tastefully appointed guesthouse with lovely views & atmosphere

A peaceful guesthouse with a private hot tub and garden, nestled against hills in the joshua tree highlands neighborhood. Designed for light, rest and privacy, 5 minutes from the village and the entrance to the stunning joshua tree national park.

The casita is a cool, clean, spacious new spanish-style building, full of light and beautiful views. It has it's own hot tub, patio, and walled garden. It is furnished simply, with an international aesthetic, and ease and comfort in mind. It sleeps up to four adults (one queen sized bed, one queen pull out sofa) and has a full bath with tub and shower, a compact kitchen, and ample storage.

A few minutes walk down the dirt road leads you to the gorgeous desert trails of the joshua tree highlands preserve, filled with wildlife, rock formations and sweeping views across the valley. The famous desert sunsets can be taken in from the private hot tub and patio.

Your hosts are jenny, an herbalist who has been a part of the community for 13 years, and her partner myshkin, a musician new to joshua tree. The space comes stocked with organic coffee, teas, body care products and gourmet chocolate from jenny's apothecary, grateful desert herb shoppe & ecomarket. There is an eclectic library of books, movies and music, a dvd player (no tv reception) , and a cd / cassette / record player.

The guesthouse is a one-room studio apartment style space, separate from but near to the property's main house, built for sonic and visual privacy. Cooking facilities include an outdoor grill, a fridge, two burner range, microwave, toaster-oven and electric-kettle, dishes and cooking gear. If there is anything you should need to borrow, please feel free to ask us.

Casita de la luna is queer friendly, a peaceful, family space. A stay at the casita offers you an insider's connection to the unique local culture of the arts and healing hideout that is joshua tree. We have a menu of services and contact info for the best area bodyworkers, yoga instructors, and other teachers and healers, and plenty of suggestions for accessing all the quirky art and culture the area has to offer.

We like to greet guests on arrival and make sure all looks good to you, but consider your privacy paramount to an enjoyable stay, and aim to stay out of your way! We are just next door though, and available to sort out any questions or issues.

The joshua tree highlands neighborhood climbs up the mountains on the south side of town, bordered on the south and west by the highlands nature preserve, and the east by road out to the national park. The terrain is thick with desert vegetation, the houses are far apart, and and the views are incredible, sweeping across the valley to the north, and into the park on the east. The neighborhood has a night sky ordinance that asks folks to keep outdoor lights to a minimum, so the stars can work their magic.

As a guest at the casita you are supporting our family, and our art and healing practices. We look forward to meeting you and being a sweet part of your desert experience. Come rest, rejuvenate and get inspired!

Perfect little studio in gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 1 night in this lovely little studio & we loved it. The location was beautiful, quiet & had great views. The hot tub is amazing, with stars to see in all directions. It was super clean, well stocked with everything you could need & all the organic bath products were divine. Jenny even gave us a $5 voucher for her natural organic shop in town which we thought was so sweet. Thank you Jenny & Myshkin! Oh & we loved your music Myshkin!!! :-))

Beautiful, Relaxing, and Quiet Studio Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a spectacular week at this little studio in Yucca Valley. The pictures do not do the studio or the views justice. I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder and so need to go somewhere sunny during the winter to keep my mood stable. The place must also be relatively quiet because I am an online professor and must read and grade essays while soaking in the sun. I couldn't have found a better place in my dreams! Myshkin (we didn't get the opportunity to meet Jenny -- though we loved using her organic herbal soaps, shampoos, and sprays :-)) was friendly and welcoming but also completely respectful of our privacy. The hot tub is fully enclosed yet open--in all the right places-- to a spectacular view of the mountains during the day and of the starry black sky at night. The water seemed to be treated with something that made it smell really fresh and was set to the perfect temperature for both day and evening soaks. The little studio is bright and airy with the curtains open or dark and cool with them closed so I could always create my perfect environment. With Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park so close by car (we rented one from Budget), there was always somewhere to go when we wanted to see the sights or simply wind our way through the hills and valleys. The people in the town are welcoming and friendly and their Saturday Farmer's Market is full of fresh veggies and local crafts. I would recommend stopping for a latte or a fruit smoothie at Ma Rouge Coffee House and checking out the local antique shops along Palm Springs Highway. So far this is my favourite spot for getting all the sunshine I need to get through the rest of winter in Southern Ontario, Canada!
