Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - NINJA RANCH
2.5 acre ranch, 3BR 2 Bath, Modern Design meets Homestead
ENTER THE NINJA RANCH, and leave having vested, tested and rested your inner Ninja! The ranch is nestled on 2.5 acres and located in the town of Joshua Tree, gateway to the awe inspiring national park in the magical Mojave. The Ninja Ranch is located just 1/4 mile off Highway 62, within 300 yards off the park boundary, 1 mile from the Indian Cove Park Entrance and directly between the Park's West and East entrances, allowing you to easily access every aspect it has to offer during your stay!
A comfortable and well appointed ranch where modern design meets homesteader tradition, the Ninja Ranch has just completed the third phase in its' evolution. It will grow over the years with new amenities and a vision for a community of ninjas who return to further their training year after year and season after season! Summer 2013 brought new floors throughout, fresh paint, a new patio doors and screen doors in the entire house! In 2014 a 800sf patio renovation including 500sf of covered patio looking into the national park and a rarely found amenity of garbage disposal and dishwasher for desert rental properties. SECLUDED AND HIGHLY ACCESSIBLE, with few neighbors, yet an easy 1/4 mile road to Highway 62 and nearby restaurants, yoga studios, shops after a day in the park. Bouldering, running, biking, hiking, gentle walks and wildlife (coyotes, quail, roadrunner, tortoise) can be found right outside the ranch gates. The south facing yard is made for relaxing. Extraordinary sweeping 360 degree views greet you from every side with stunning sunsets and night skies with star showers daily.
The immediate property is fully gated, with a barbecue, picnic table, teak lounge chairs and a fire pit. Inside find a fully equipped kitchen, fire place, gas heat, swamp cooler and ceiling fan, linens, 34' HDTV and DVD/CD player, ninja games and a small library await.
The ranch sleeps 6 and is perfect for a 3 couple getaway, girls weekend, or up to two small families. No exceptions due to an on site above ground water supply system. There are three bedrooms in the home, each with a queen bed. One opens to the south view, the other two to the north (one with direct access to the second bathroom, and one with a giant skylight over the bed for star shows nightly). Vaulted ceilings in the great room and a large sectional sofa provides alternate sleeping opportunities. Dining table for 6, and adjacent sitting area for 3 by the fire. The rental provides access to the first floor of the property in an open floor plan in the main living area. The owner's area/storage loft is excluded from guest access.
We are on a self contained water unit, and have a neighbor who values the seclusion of the Magical Mojave as much as we do. Therefore large groups and parties are not a match for the Ninja Ranch. If that happens to be what you are looking for we want to welcome you to join us at the Joshua Tree Music Festival (joshuatreemusicfestival.com) twice a year which is an amazing place for all of the above.
Dogs are allowed by owner permission exception, and require crating at night and when guests off site, no furniture access and additional stay and cleaning fees. The reason is due to the needs of guests with allergies, and new floors throughout the house in 2014. Please note that Joshua Tree National Park does not allow dogs off leash, and that coyotes and other wildlife for pets not accustomed to them is not the optimum for either in terms of encounters. Contact the owner directly regarding pets.
The property is leased via a signed rental agreement and requires acknowlegement of the Ranch Guide and lease terms. Payment is easily handled via the online payment system.

Why Chaz O'Brien chose Joshua Tree
The small town of Joshua Tree has a radically high ratio of lovely, creative folks. The wide open surroundings are inspiring. I had been looking for a place with some space, adjacent to the park. I fell in love with the ranch in a ninja minute.
What makes this house unique
