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!
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…
The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
Luna Vista is located in the beautiful Joshua Tree Highlands 3 miles east of the West Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and only steps from the Park boundary.
