By listening to our past guests, we know that most of you are coming here to spend time with friends and loved one(s) so we have thoughtfully created spaces for enjoying time together - comfortable seating to share long nights, fully stocked kitchens for sharing meals, fire pits to gather around, games to entertain, and a long list of things to do in the area, so that you may explore the desert

All of our homes are located in the town of Joshua Tree just minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park and are professionally maintained on a regular basis. Our guests are guaranteed a personal, unique, and intimate experience. Most importantly, if there are any emergencies, we are just minutes away to help. Our reviews posted here are from previous guests, please feel free to read them and ask questions. Thank you for considering Moonlight Mesa Retreats!

Escape from the city life and experience the solitude, stars and endless blue skies with our desert vacation rentals. Just 120 miles from L.A. and 30 miles from Palm Springs, Joshua Tree is a short drive to an oasis of discovery. Its nearly perfect year-around weather and smog free air attract people from all over looking for a place to get a way from it all.

Joshua Tree National Park welcomes over a million visitors every year. The park offers rock climbing, hiking, sight seeing, biking, camping, bird watching, star gazing, and exploring. This amazing park looks simple at first glance but its surreal geologic features will have a lasting impression. Want something different? Within a few minutes are hot springs, horse back riding, gambling, outlet stores, tram rides, atv riding, and more.

Climbing:

Rock Climbing is a sport that people from all age groups can enjoy (we climb with our nieces and nephews ages 5 to 18) and I have heard countless stories from people that have used climbing to overcome addictions, build self confidence, get in shape and to be in touch with nature.

Hiking:

Hiking in the desert can make you feel worlds away from the city life. With the wide open space and prehistoric looking geography you can’t help but feel a sense of wonder for this amazing place. There are so many places to explore from old mining camps, historic homes built into the rocks, hidden oasis where Indians once settled, view points where you can see in every direction due to the smog free air and so much more.

Star Gazing:

Anyone who has been to the desert knows what we are all saying when we brag about our desert night skies. According to the BBC, 99% of the continental United States (and two thirds of the world's population) never see a truly dark, starry sky. The Mojave Desert is one of the last places left in the United States where you can still see the Milky Way with the naked eye. At all of our rentals, there is plenty of outdoor seating and lounging to take in the night. It is one of the most special things we can offer our guests during their stay- a piece of peace that they can take with them anywhere.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing and relaxing three nights at the Casa. The kitchen is very well appointed, and the house is nicely furnished. Lots of great movies to watch and books to read. The hot tub was much appreciated after a day of hiking and the fire pit was perfect for making smores. Great location and beautiful view from the deck. We will hopefully return in the future!

Love the jacuzzi!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for my birthday weekend. Really nice views from inside and out the back into the hills. Feels very fancy although the construction is pretty rustic. The location is perfect and fairly secluded. The best part was the salt water jacuzzi and fire pit. We sat and enjoyed the geminid meteor shower while being soothed by the warm water. Honestly doesn't get better than that. No problems with the owners or booking.

Owner's Response: Hi Gerald, I'm glad we could help make your birthday a special one. Years ago when we purchased our first hot tub for ourselves and soaked under the desert night sky, we knew that each of our rentals needed a hot tub! There is nothing better than soaking in that warm water while staring up at the milky way- glad you enjoyed it as well.

Thoughtfully designed, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely. The space is thoughtfully designed, open with lots of natural light. The picture windows throughout the house offer great views. The windows in the bedrooms are perfect for watching the sun rise.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Ghazal! I would agree that the best part of this house are the amazing views out of the big picture windows. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again!

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Desert Casa for 3 nights recently. It was a perfect place for friends looking to spend some time in the park and time together after. Great location near the edge of the park, and we could trail run from the house into desert conservation area with petroglyphs! Beautiful, comfortable house, nice layout, everything you might need in the kitchen, awesome hot tub and pool, and beautiful views. Absolutely wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! It sounds like you enjoyed the Desert Casa and all that it has to offer. The land next to the house is one of our favorite places to hike- we have seen tortoise, bobcat, hawks and more. So glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again!

Loved the Desert Casa

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister-in-law and dogs stayed for a weekend in early November. The house is attractive inside and out, clean and well appointed. The views are a plus, as is the pool, Jacuzzi and close proximity to both town and the park. Christa and Mark were very responsive to our questions. If you're visiting Joshua Tree, you will enjoy your stay at the Desert Casa.

Owner's Response: Andrew, Thank you for your kind words. I also love the views from this house through the large picture windows..even when being inside, you feel like you are a part of the scenic desert. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again!

Great pool

  • 5 of 5

enjoyable and looks just like the pictures. beautiful landscape and amazing pool. beds aren't as comfortable as i would have liked, but sufficient. the fan in bedroom closest to the driveway is VERY wobbly

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Christel. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Desert Casa. Thank you for pointing out the fan being wobbly, we were able to fix it by tightening the screws at the bottom. Both beds have a standard queen mattress with a foam topper. I know every person has different sleeping requirements so it is hard to have a perfect bed for each person. I'm glad it didn't take away from your overall experience and we hope to have you again!
