About Michelle Strong

We are filmmakers, musicians...a creative couple who bought this place as a way to rejuvenate and escape the stresses of the city.

Michelle Strong purchased this house in 2010

Why Michelle Strong chose Joshua Tree

Gorgeous remote park like setting. Peace and quiet. Hit the reset button and renew. We also have a sister cabin to this property 1/3 of the mile down the road called Billy Goat Gruff. VRBO#619000. These make great properties for a retreat or a family reunion.

What makes this house unique

you can get away from it all here---

in the winter we enjoy a roaring fire in the woodburning stove---early mornings as the sun rises---nights on the observation deck counting shooting stars. Our koi pond makes this an excellent spot for bird watching....owls, hawks, humming birds and a family of quail.

Loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
Loved this place! Didn't want to leave! What we loved the most about the house was their music selection or should I say library? ;) and the kitchen was fully stocked.The bedrooms were the perfect size, all rooms had a nice flow feeling and everything was very clean. You can tell they've put in a lot of Love to this house. Can't wait to come out again. About 10 mins to the Intregraton and the Big Rock. Everything was perfect. Thanks Michelle!

Fun Desert Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
I had a fabulous time here surrounded by friends celebrating my 30th birthday. This house is great for accommodating anywhere from 2-8 people just fine. We BBQ'd, cooked in the kitchen, and it was great! No complaints at all. I hope to come back to this residence again and again for my getaways out of the city. Michelle and her husband were awesome too! I have and will recommend this to all of my friends.

Relaxing Escape Near Joshua Tree

  • 5 out of 5
Great 2BR house with plenty of sleeping surfaces: couches, trailer outside, etc. We cooked most of our meals for the weekend, and the kitchen was more than adequate. The outdoor fire pit, stargazing/sunbathing platform and dining area were where we spent the majority of our stay and it was awesome. The landlord was also great to work with; she was really responsive and gave us great recommendations of things to do around town.

Note, this is in Landers, which is about 10-15 minutes from Joshua Tree proper, but we didn't mind that it was a little drive to get into town.

beautiful quiet location

  • 5 out of 5
We totally enjoyed our stay in this cute property which was even nicer than the photos showed it to be. It had so many nice touches and felt homey. The kids enjoyed playing the drums and sitting up on the viewing platform in the back yard. The fenced yard was perfect for letting the dogs out and about and we totally enjoyed our time. We'd love to come and stay for longer next time!

Charming Eclectic Property with many Unique Features.

  • 5 out of 5
Four of us plus one dog spent 4-nights at the property as a base for visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We found the property, charming and comfortable in an interesting, quite location on the outskirts of Landers. The whole set up seemed to blend well into the surroundings as well as being reflective of the character of Landers. Our dog particularly loved exploring the large fenced area surrounding the house.

Please be aware that if your focus is Joshua Tree National Park the property is some 15-miles form the nearest entrance gate but to us it was worth the drive.

Perfect Retreat in the Desert

  • 5 out of 5
This place is unreal. We stayed over New Years, and what a magical way to welcome in 2014! This house would be an ideal artists retreat. The owners did a beautiful job creating an artistic, peaceful, and very comfortable space to get away from it all. When the time came to leave, we were fantasizing about staying forever. There's tons of space in this house, both inside and outside. We loved spending time outside around the fire, passing a guitar. Our favorite spots inside were by the wood burning heater and in the big gorgeous kitchen and dining area. We also loved the claw foot tub in the bathroom and the outdoor shower, and the ample hang space in the living/music room and front room. The view from the observation deck is unreal, and there are a dozen cozy spots outside to lounge with a book and a cup of coffee in the morning. It was a dream, thanks Michelle! We're definitely hoping to come back again next year.
