Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - Joshua Tree Mid-Century

This is a Sprawling 2500 Square Foot Mid-Century Home Custom-built in 1959

This is a sprawling 2500 square foot Mid-Century home custom-built in 1959 located on 4+ private and fenced acres with electric security gate.

Relax with your friends and family in a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home decorated in an eclectic mix of antique, vintage, rustic, and modern - it's a time warp with modern comforts.

Every room is over-sized - 2 large bedrooms with plenty of privacy between them, dressing room sized closets, new Cal King beds and 2 full bathrooms - both with original tile. Master bath has very interesting sunken roman shower/tub while the guest bath has a separated shower and comfortable bathtub for soaking.

The kitchen is fully stocked and features a new oven and refrigerator with ice maker as well as a coffee maker, blender, mixer, air popcorn popper, crock pot, and pots, pans, utensils, and staples such as spices, sugar, flour, condiments, etc. If you have a special food preparation requirement then just ask - the equipment is probably on site. For example, there is an Omega Vert350HD juicer which does a great job on both fruits and vegetables. Enjoy your meals around a maple table with seating for up to 10 in front of a wood-burning fireplace. There is also a gas barbeque outside on the patio and and a picnic table for al fresco dining!

Living room has a large wood-burning fireplace, 11 foot long couch, lounging cushions, and a wall of windows that look out to beautiful views of mountains. There is a queen memory foam bed in the living room just off the den which is perfect for reading or extra guests.

The den has 2 comfy twin size day beds, flat screen television wired to Netflix, Apple TV, record player, CD/DVD player, and an interesting collection of books, CDs/DVDs and hundreds of records for use during your stay. There are 3 vintage stereos in the house - each with record player and AirPort Express AirPlay device for wireless or hardwire connection to your IPhone, IPad, or MAC.

Yoga mats and a massage table are provided.

A washer and dryer, iron, ironing board, and clothes steamer are located in the house for your use.

Enjoy wandering the gated grounds, warm yourself in front of the fire pit, soak in the 6 person hot tub, or relax in the hammocks on the patio. Write your great novel on the vintage typewriter or catch up on the TV shows and movies you never have time to watch.

A dart board, horseshoe pit, and bean bag toss game are provided for drinking sports aficionados. Cards and chips and various board games are also provided - had a good game of Life, Monopoly, Chess, or Scrabble lately? Come on out and slow down!

We also have a newly remodeled Guest House on the property available to rent separately. Please see our separate listing Joshua Tree Modern Guest House for details. The Guest House has a living room area with fireplace, queen bedroom nook, 1 or optionally 2 twin beds, newly remodeled bathroom, full kitchen and wood-burning fireplace and a hot tub. For groups of 6+ we suggest that you consider renting both the Main and Guest house together.

There are 2 hot tubs on the property. The round hot tub is located closer to the Main House and is dedicated for use of the guests of the Main House. The Jacuzzi J-LXL square hot tub is located in a more remote area past the Guest House and is available for use if there is no one staying in the Guest House.

We are just a few blocks away from the art galleries, restaurants, and bar in downtown Joshua Tree and about 10 minutes away by car from the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

We have hosted weddings with up to 80 guests on the property. There is plenty of parking and outdoor spaces to accommodate large gatherings. Parties, weddings, or events with 10 or more attendees require specific prior permission. The property is in close proximity to the Joshua Tree National Park and the village of Joshua Tree. The village of Joshua Tree offers a variety of great restaurant options and art galleries. Pappy & Harriets in Pioneertown is just a 15 minute drive and is not to be missed for great music and food and drink.

We love to share our experiences in the Joshua Tree area with our guests but are very respectful of your privacy. As such, the amount interaction with our guests is entirely at our guests' discretion.

We hope you can come stay at our property soon!

About Owner / Manager

Mark and Laura have a home in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles and several vacation rentals in Joshua Tree. Laura teaches yoga and is owner of a yoga studio - Glendale Yoga in Glendale, CA. After nearly 30 years in B2B sales Mark spends much of his time in Joshua Tree managing and improving the properties. We both grew up in Cincinnati, OH but have lived in California for 20 years. We love everything that California has to offer but are particularly enamored with the beautiful scenery and interesting community of Joshua Tree.

Owner / Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Owner / Manager chose Joshua Tree

We purchased this property because we both appreciate architecture and vintage furniture and décor. This house was quite a showplace in its day - Donovan used to stop by for coffee - and we have enjoyed restoring it to its original glory and filling it with period furnishing and decoration and wonderful art. There are 8' deep eaves around the entire house which keep it cooler and provide choices of shady seating areas for different times of the day. This house is a relaxing and comfortable trip back in time.

What makes this house unique

There are beautiful views through walls of glass in the kitchen and living room. The large open kitchen with room for a table with seating for 10 in front of a fireplace is perfect for large get togethers. All of the rooms are oversized - the sunken living room is nearly 900 sq. ft. alone - and there are multiple indoor and outdoor gathering spots so the house never really feels crowded. We love to relax on the patio off of the kitchen and master bedroom while listening to one of the thousands of records in the record collection and watching the stars in the beautiful desert sky!

Fantastic place to relax, stars just as visible as in Joshua Tree

  • 5 out of 5
The place was fantastic. Period. I went with my family and another couple to shoot stars and the Milky Way and some of the best shots I got were from the yard while lying in a hammock and talking with friends.

We abandoned our hiking plans and ended up just relaxing in the house, listening to the huge collection of records on hand, playing darts, and grilling together when the sun went down.

An excessive amount of space with lots of different areas to sit together or by yourself and just read. 10 minute drive from the park entrance (you can't get much closer than that).

The property is located on a well-maintained dirt road in a relatively sparsely populated neighborhood just a half mile away from the village of Joshua Tree. Although just 2 hours drive from Los Angeles you will find Joshua Tree to be worlds away. Joshua Tree is a beautiful area that attracts artists and musicians and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world to make it their home. The community actively supports the arts and tourism and environmental issues. Visitors will find the locals to be an extremely interesting and friendly lot. The west entrance to the amazing 800,000 acre Joshua Tree National Park is just a couple miles away and the property features views of the mountains in the park. There are excellent running and hiking trails outside of the park just a short walk from the property.
