Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - Luna Vista

Minutes From Joshua Tree National Park: 3-bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Home.

High above the village of Joshua Tree, only steps from Joshua Tree National Park. You will be mesmerized by the ever-changing play of sun and moon on the desert landscape.

Amenities include: Spacious great room with fireplace; Wi-Fi; flat screen TV with Roku, Pandora and Netflix for Internet music and movies; DVD player and collection of DVD classics. Open the twelve-foot window wall and experience the sights and sounds of the desert from inside the living area. The full size kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, new stainless appliances, a walk-in pantry, everything you need to prepare your gourmet meals, laundry facilities and a gas barbeque.

The master bedroom, in vintage Mexican décor, has a deluxe queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a sliding glass door onto the expansive covered patio. The master bathroom has a beautiful Talavera tiled vanity, walk-in shower and jetted tub to soothe those weary muscles after a day of hiking. Choose the Cowgirl room with its antique décor, two twin beds, ceiling fan, or enjoy the Cowboy room’s old Western décor, queen bed, ceiling fan, and sliding glass door onto the patio. The guest bathroom has a full shower and tub. All towels and linens are provided.

Luna Vista has central heating and air-conditioning, but the outside living areas will draw you outdoors - try the cowboy shower or a soak in a cowboy tub! There’s nothing better after a day of desert fun! And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience the meandering nature trail that will lead you around the 2.5-acre property. It may inspire you to continue hiking right into Joshua Tree National Park. Let us know in our wildlife log what creatures you encountered. With all this to see and do just outside your backdoor, you might never want to leave this magical place!

Why Cindy Beck chose Joshua Tree

Our family has been coming to and loving the Mohave Desert for 4 generations. When our primitive cabin of over 50 years burned in 2007 in a wildfire in the Eastern Sierras we were devastated. But from the ashes came this new home in the high desert at Joshua Tree! We have found another place of peace and refuge right next to the spectacular Joshua Tree National Park. We fell in love with the abundance of flora and fauna, the unusual and awesome geology, the glorious sunrises and sunsets, the forever views of the ever-changing desert landscape, the dazzling night sky and, of course, the beautiful moonrises…

What makes this house unique

The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...

Beautiful!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I go to Joshua Tree every year, but this was our first time staying at Luna Vista and not our last. The location of the house was secluded and it felt like the desert landscape was our very own private backyard. The trail was lovely and being nestled in the hills creates the best energy to unwind, relax and let go! The night sky was spectacular and the house is newly updated with great amenities. The jacuzzi bathtub was super with a nice view of the desert as you bathe. The views from the living room/dining area were beautiful, the house allows you to see out of every room. We had internet, netflix and movies provided. The house was organized, clean with good bedding and comfortable beds. I called Cindy a couple of times with questions and she was always available and helpful. It was hard to leave this place but we will return.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 out of 5
We immensely enjoyed our stay at Luna Vista. Everything was perfect, inside and out. We liked that this house was tucked away at the end of a dirt road. You can literally take a hike and climb the rocks straight from the back porch, which I did one morning. The house was very tastefully furnished and had everything we needed for our brief vacation. We enjoyed grilling on the porch one evening. It also came complete with light torches, binocular and telescope for star gazing (even though the latter was somewhat wobbly and needs some fixing).

A Luna Vista Christmas

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first Christmas with our family since we downsized and it was perfect! The house exceeded our expectations! It had everything we needed was incredibly comfortable. And the desert setting was spectacular - from every angle. We hope to come back again soon.

Luxury Rental - Spectacular!

  • 5 out of 5
Luna Vista was truly spectacular! A solidly built house with luxury accommodations. So private, quiet and serene and very close to the entrance of the park.
Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, plus the owners provided shampoo, conditioner, soap - it was like staying at a 4 star resort. Our first night was quite windy which is usual for the high desert, but the walls and windows were of such high quality, you could not even hear the wind storm outside. The master and queen spare bedroom had the most amazing views, we made sure to wake up for sunrise as it is was just amazing.
One morning we ran the nature trail a few times and then did yoga on the fantastic patio that runs the length of the house.
We brought our two dogs, be cautious with small dogs as there are definitely coyotes and wildlife in the area.
Arriving for the first time while there is still daylight is a MUST as it is very dark at night, also the road up to the house is dirt and uneven due to the rains in the area, so I definitely recommend driving an SUV when visiting the property.
Absolutely no complaints with this rental, owner was super helpful, home is beautiful and we will definitely be returning to Luna Vista!

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
My family recently rented Luna Vista for a long weekend while attending a wedding in Joshua Tree. It was wonderful and so relaxing. My 10 month old grandson absolutely loved the outdoor patio to play on. We had a campfire one night and did some stargazing. The house was very clean and Cindy thought of everything that you might need. My family kept telling me how perfect Luna Vista was. I would definitely rent it again!!!!

Fabulous!

  • 5 out of 5
Luna Vista far exceeded our expectations. We loved the living room area. Having the kitchen, dining table, and couches all in a large open space was very conducive to interaction. The bedrooms are on each end of the house and were very quiet even while others were still up in the living area. Everything is tastefully appointed. The kitchen is supplied with everything you could possibly need. The polished concrete floors were a joy to walk barefoot on. We spent a lot of time on the outdoor porch. It has fabulous views and we learned why the place is named Luna Vista, for we enjoyed a nearly full yellow moonrise directly to the east. And we did indeed have a desert tortoise visit the back porch.
Only caveat - the area had a lot of flash flooding the previous summer so the dirt roads were a bit dicey, with some areas of deep sand. Depending on your vehicle, you may want to check in with Cindy regarding current conditions. Highly recommended accommodation.
