Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - Desert Sky Compound

Couples refuge, 1200 sq ft home; 1 bedroom, 2 bath, dining & living room, 2+acre

Welcome to our 'Desert Sky Compound' in Joshua Tree - an Artist's Haven and Awesome Couples Refuge. Unlike a lot of the properties in Joshua Tree, the streets are paved all the way to the entrance. This spacious 1200 square foot home has high ceilings, an open floor plan, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, 2 rear patio areas plus a front porch for enjoying the view or evening breeze. This unique custom built home is located on 2.3 acres with local wildlife, Joshua Trees, landscaped walkways and dozens of unique types of cactus blooming throughout the year.

Full kitchen with 4 burner stove, oven, full size refrigerator, toaster, dishes, bowls, pots, pans and all utensils. (Olive oil, coffee maker including coffee & filters, teas, sugar, salt & pepper provided.)

100% Solar power (yet also on the “grid” for constant power), central heating, air conditioning, wood burning stove, ceiling fans. WiFi and movie DVD's and music CD's with monitor for your viewing or listening pleasure. Games, cards, backgammon. (No cable television, no phone.)

From our property atop a hill you get beautiful night village views as well as of the Southeastern Mojave Desert mountains. Two sides of the property are walled so you really feel like you are in your own private sanctuary with rabbits, quails and road runners who frequent the grounds – as well as doves, chipmunks, ground squirrels, wren, lizards, humming birds. Once the sun goes down, the property is visited by bats, occasional bobcats and owls. You will be amazed at the clear and vibrant starry skies here in Joshua Tree – the milky way is visible here along with all the other constellations.

Call it a retreat, refuge, sanctuary, oasis, getaway or hideaway – whatever word you choose will describe this beautiful vacation rental. (A second home, owner occupied, adjoins the vacation home by a soundproofed cement wall, and a 6 foot block and fence privacy wall separates the vacation home backyard, all of the guests have positively commented on the great privacy, especially with 2.3 acres.)

Location – Location – Location:

We're 5.6 miles from the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, an 800,000 acre wilderness preserve, with groves of Joshua Trees, incredible gigantic boulders and some of the best rock climbing in the world. If you don't feel like driving, then a minutes walk up the street (900 yards) is where you'll find a trailhead (Wildlife Habitat Restoration area) to wander - climbable rocky hills, 360 degree views of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, 29 Palms and Joshua Tree National Park.

About 2 miles from our Getaway is “Downtown” Joshua Tree which has art galleries, a yoga studio, adventure & hiking outfitter stores, a bakery, gift shops, many restaurants including great burgers and great vegan fare, even a (remarkably good) pizza parlor as well as other restaurants including Thai, a saloon and home style coffee shop. A National Park Visitors Center is located right off the main drag, so you can park there and check out the shops before you head to our backyard, Joshua Tree National Park.

Just about 40 minutes away is Palm Springs! If you do venture to Palm Springs for the day then consider going to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Air museum or The Living Desert.

About 40 minutes away is the famous 'Giant Rock' - a large freestanding boulder in the Mojave Desert near Landers, California, that covers 5,800 square feet of ground and is seven stories high. Giant Rock is purported to be the largest free standing boulder in the world.

OTHER: If you're feeling adventurous - Salton Sea is less than 90 minutes away. Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is 2 hours away. The Tortoise Rock Casino is 18 miles away in 29 Palms. The Cabazon outlets are about 40 minutes away. Lake Havasu on the California/Nevada border is 3 hours away. In Laughlin you'll find casino's such as Harrah's & The Golden Nugget plus tourist attractions including the Davis Dam and the Colorado River. The London Bridge (Lake Havasu City) is a short detour along the way

There are many many great hikes in Joshua Tree National Park and the Visitors Center (6554 Park Blvd) can guide you to the best ones based on your interests and hiking ability.

Restaurants – minutes from the house include:

Natural Sister Cafe (Health Food)

61695-B Twentynine Palms Hwy;

Crossroads Cafe & Tavern (Local coffee shop, homemade food);

Park Rock Cafe (next to the visitor center);

Joshua Tree Saloon;

Pie for the People (Yummy Pizza);

Royal SIAM Cuisine Thai;

Sam's Indian Food;

About Pamela Malouf

Owners John and Pam both work in the Entertainment industry - Pam in television, John in features although they are now both semi-retired.

Pamela Malouf purchased this house in 2010

Why Pamela Malouf chose Joshua Tree

They love the desert and the fresh, clean air and natural surroundings and wildlife. Best of all - the lack of city crowds and traffic!

This vacation rental is fairly new to VRBO. They had been renting it privately. We take pride in our property and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

What makes this house unique

We love the house and vacation home because it was custom built with extra thick walls, has passive solar features, high ceilings and is in a quiet and secluded part of town. We love being able to walk 10 minutes to hike or just sit on the patio and watch the abundant wildlife. And because we're high up, we even have a view of the city lights.

Wonderful Desert House

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here for three nights with the hopes of a chance to relax, get some editing work done and get pictures of the desert skyscape, landscape and the Milky Way: we accomplished all of those things and more. The house was private, spacious (perfect for a couple), well-equipped and very comfortable. The surrounding yard is well-manicured with a variety of cactus and other plant life that attracts bunnies and butterflies. Pam & John were easy to work with and very accommodating with flexible times and suggestions on local hiking spots. This house is in our favorites and we can't wait to return!

Relaxing Desert Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I absolutely loved the wonderful desert setting for this delightful home. We enjoyed sitting on the patios and watching the bunnies, quail, doves, butterflies, hummingbirds in the desert landscape. The house is spacious for two people, clean, well equipped, private, and the bed is very comfortable.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
I was here for 3 nights and this rental made me feel like I was at home. It was so comfortable, open, clean, and just a cool place to come back to after long days at JT National Park. Pam and John were very accommodating and were flexible with a late check-out which made me feel like I was in no rush to leave!

It's also very closely located to the park (approx. 6 miles). Overall, I had a great time and would love to stay here again

Exceptional Space and Location

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely, spacious, comfortable, cozy, quiet and private place to stay. The house is set up nicely. The kitchen is great - stove, microwave, and regular size refrigerator, coffeemaker, pots and pans. It has two bathrooms - a nice touch. And it has an incredibly comfortable couch. It has ceiling fans and AC and I was cool and comfortable even during the hottest time of the day. I was there to do some writing and there were two wonderful tables for writing, a lot of flat surfaces to spread out my materials and acres and acres of quiet.

Pam was very gracious and helpful. She worked with me when I needed to change my arrival date, she offered to allow me to arrive early or have a late departure if needed. Finally this location is close to the park so I was able to easliy catch a couple of sunrises which were breathtakingly beautiful. If you are looking for a place to stay in Joshua Tree - this place is fantastic.

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 out of 5
Went to a wedding in Josua Tree. All of my family was at the wedding and stayed in different places around the area. Our rental was by far the best. Clean easy access. Had all the comforts of home. The surroundings were beautiful. Woul definately recommend to anyone that wants a nice place to stay while visiting the area.
