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.

Thanksgiving in the desert

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, myself and another couple were very fortunate to rent such an awesome property over the long Thanksgiving weekend. We couldn't have been more happy with our stay. The home is lovely and has some accourtrements that are extra special such as the stargazing observation deck (with a futon for lounging), koi pond, an outdoor shower and wood burning stoves and fireplace. We spent most of our time sitting out on the back porch sipping wine and enjoying the peaceful desert. The owner, Michelle, is very pleasant and reponsive to all of our needs and questions. Her home was well equipt for our needs...even for making a Thanksgiving turkey with the fixins! When I left my mother's crystal earrings on the dresser (despite reminding myself not to forget them), Michelle was able to send them back to me ASAP and followed up each day to make sure I'd received them. What a nice person! My friends and I will be re-renting this property again for our next Joshua Tree excursion. I encourage the reader to strongly consider this home as a locale for your next getaway... the starry night skies and galaxy views await!

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!
