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...

Traveling family

There wasn't enough propane to be able to grill outside on our second night. One of the reclining chairs by the fire pit was broken and we almost fell over backward! Other than that, our stay was magnificent! We enjoyed marveling at nature and relaxing during our stay. The house is well stocked with amenities and we especially liked the chocolates that were left for us to enjoy. Nice touch!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a magnificent time at Luna Vista! Sorry you weren't able to use the BBQ - we always leave the valve on the propane tank in the off position and possibly that was the problem, but in any case we do provide a back-up tank just under the small table next to the BBQ. And we have a part on order for that broken chair. May your traveling family someday return to our little piece of Paradise!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic time at Luna Vista. The house itself is about a 5 minute drive off the main road that leads into Joshua Tree National Park. It's a bumpy unpaved road up to the house, but once you make it, you are perched atop a mountainside with a wonderful view of the desert and mountains. There were multiple different places to sit outside on the property, and each one had a different view with its own charms.

The house was well stocked, had a very functional kitchen and 3 cozy bedrooms, and also had some great books to read including a hiking guide and some good histories of the surrounding area.

The telescope was an added bonus, and given the clear desert nights we were able to see some things in the sky we'd never seen before.

Cindy, the owner, was helpful and very easy to deal with.

Bottom line: great week for us and we would very much like to come back again.

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four other friends stayed at Luna Vista for a long weekend to celebrate our 40th birthdays happening this year. Cindy's home is welcoming and offered everything that life long friends looking to bond over a weekend could ask for. The views are excellent and the home is well maintained. Beyond the views, other highlights are the sliding wall/door that allows people cooking feel like they are still part of the experience and the outdoor shower / cowboy tub. Thanks for sharing your home. We had a lovely time.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Luna Vista over a three day weekend with my husband, parents, 2 young daughters (ages 3 and 4) and 2 dogs. We had a wonderful time and Luna Vista was amazing. The house was extremely clean and well stocked with linens, toiletries, and pantry staples. Cindy was very quick to respond to all of my questions before and after our trip. We cannot wait to come back!

Memeorable weekend.

  • 5 of 5

After meeting two old buddies at LAX, arriving at Luna Vista seemed like we had journeyed to another world! Although it was around midnight, we could see the home was beautiful and waking to the sunrise the following morning revealed the amazing surroundings. Cindy has taken care of every detail and the proximity to the park as well as the town of Joshua Tree made everything very accessible. I have already referred Luna Vista to several friends.

Heaven in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I have been going to Joshua Tree for years and realized what we've been missing all this time---once we stayed at Luna Vista. I have loved camping and the quaint hotels near the park, but Luna Vista was like no other experience. It was a dream house with everything we needed and our only regret was not being able to stay longer than two nights. Everything we could possibly need was at our fingertips. What a seen, picturesque and inviting home. I will be back very soon.
