Overview

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...

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.

PARADISE IN THE DESERT

  • 5 out of 5
We are four retired teachers from the Bay Area who wanted a cool place to stay while attending a conference at Joshua Tree. Luna Vista went far beyond our expectations and we were so happy to find a lovely home with beautiful Central or South American furniture, extremely comfortable beds, and the whole house inside and out was tastefully decorated with worldly themes. We could tell that this was a second home much cared for. If one can get up at around 5:00am the most beautiful sunrises in the world are in a panoramic sky. The home is ten times better than the picture presented; so you will be living in paradise in the desert too. The park is just a very short drive (say 1 mile) away to the entrance; and it too is amazing. I only wish we had more time there and less time spending inside in a conference.

A hidden gem at Joshua Tree

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful home with all the amenities you need for a weekend getaway. The view is gorgeous, the location is prefect for access to Joshua Tree National Park (5 mins), and the outdoor shower is a must try! Had a blast and I would definitely rebook Luna Vista if I find myself at Joshua Tree again.

My only recommendation would be to add outdoor speakers. The Pandora radio on the Roku was great but we would have liked to enjoy the music while watching the sunset on the patio.

Owner's Response: Thank you Daniel! We are so pleased you had a blast! We considered outdoor speakers for the very reason you mention but opted not to out of respect for our neighbors and the desert quietude.
Hope to have you stay again in the future!

Best Vacation House Ever!

  • 5 out of 5
We just had the most wonderful visit at Luna Vista. We stayed at the house for 3 nights and everything was perfect. We cooked outside on the bbq while we enjoyed the fantastic views. The house had everything we needed. We are for sure going to return again. Thank you so much for making our first vacation to Joshua Tree so special.

Felt Luxurious with All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Luna Vista. I wanted to have a rental that felt like an actual vacation, where I could be pampered, but also have a livable, fun space for the kids. Luna Vista fit the bill perfectly.

The house is very tastefully decorated with beautiful art and also historical artifacts that seem to have been lovingly collected. The bedding is high-end, and the bathrooms are fully stocked with soap, other amenities, and big plush towels. The shower in the master bath felt like a spa experience and there's also a big deep tub that the small kids loved. The living room and open-plan kitchen open up to a big beautiful desert vista patio. The patio has ample comfortable seating and it was a joy to watch the kids play in the desert while drinking coffee in the morning.

It can get SUPER windy there, and you may hear the wind blowing at night, but this is part of the desert experience in the spring. Waking up in the master bedroom to a roaring sunrise was fantastic. The kitchen had everything you would ever need (seriously, you could cook a 5-course meal here and even bake cookies); again, all high-end kitchen appliances and gadgets/place settings, etc.

It's not an enormous house, but it feels big due to the layout and all the lovely outside space. My husband and I were in the master, my sister in law in the other room, and the kids in the sweet room with two twin beds, and it worked out perfectly. It's close enough to the park and downtown, but I think you will mostly enjoy just hanging out in this lovely home.

Cindy, the owner, was very responsive when we were making the booking and she provided lots of helpful info about restaurants/sight-seeing etc. The delicious sea-salt chocolate covered caramels upon arrival were a really nice touch. The property was very clean and all-in-all this was one of our best VRBO experiences.
