Cozy home in north Joshua Tree located on 1/2 acre with two large Joshua Trees in front yard, cacti, sitting areas in the front and back, close to the national park and downtown shopping district. Paved roads to the property down Sunfair. Also close to the bi-annual music festival which is on Sunfair. This home is in a get-away-from-it-all location sitting in the middle of a small community of homes. Enjoy Art Tours the last two weekends in October and Joshua Tree Music Festival in early October and early May. Discover Joshua Tree National Park, Indian Cove entrance which is free 12 miles to the east or Park Blvd entrance which requires a daily fee 12 miles to the west. Joshua Tree is great for artist types including painters, writers and photographers. It's easy to find rusty artifacts while walking the wide open spaces or old glass and weathered items unearthed by our infrequent but feisty wind and rain storms.

The Buzzards Roost began in Bouse.AZ where it was a coffee shop and local gathering spot. I moved to Joshua Tree two years ago and decided to carry on the Buzzards Roost tradition in the form of a vacation rental. My son Douglas and his wife Julia, are members of the Transition J T Foodies and Water Group as well as the North Joshua Tree Permaculture Society, where plans to build and maintain a local organic farm and conservation demonstration garden this property are under way. He is trying out ideas including solar and wind power and desert gardening and water saving techniques such as rain catchment on this property. I live nearby about a mile up the road. I decorated the vacation rental with my own personal flair. I hope you find it charming and comfortable.
Joshua Tree is a lovely desert village with a inspiring vibe that brings me joy. The area where this home is located is away from it all while having sparsely sprinkled neighbors 1/2 acre away. It's on a paved road surrounded by dirt roads. It's close to town but close to wide open space as well.We are a moving all our properties toward sustainable living and are happy to announce that we just completed in March 15, 2014 and 18 panel solar array to power the Buzzards Roost with free solar energy into the future.
Sunrise and sunset views, stargazing, peace and quiet, ,roadrunners, bunnies, quail, coyote. Fenced in yard keeps family and friends safe during the day but I'd be watchfull at night. Short drive to the national park 29 Palms Indian cove entrance or Park Blvd Joshua Tree entrance. Three miles to Joshua Tree Lake and Dry Lake OHV area. Favorite restaurants are Crossroads, Royal Thai and Sams. Joshua Tree Health Food Store is also recommended as is the weekly Saturday morning farmers market. Natural Sisters has amazing smoothies and Pie for the People has hand tossed pizza. The Grateful Desert Herb and Eco Market is highly recommended and the local thrift stores are fun to browse through.The Saturday morning farmers market is a great place to pick up locally grown organic foods and check out the great shops and antique stores in Joshua tree township.
Stargazing in clean clear skies is amazing. Sunrises if you are up early are a spiritual revelation and will keep you waiting for sunset just to witness the explosion of color across the sky. Pull up a chair, relax and enjoy. Perfect location for Art Tours in October. Also October is the Roots Festival and In May the Music Festival. April brings many amazing migratory birds through the Roost with over three hundred turkey vultures landing in the trees all around the Buzzards Roost last month around the 25th. The wildlife comes to you,coyotes,tortoise,road runners, birds of every kind, hawks, falcons , eagles.big horn sheep,bobcat,many of the slithery ,crawly critters as well if you have an interest. All are amazing and fun to observe. Enjoy.
