About Christa Cranston

After quitting our own business (Mark) and corporate job (me) and then selling our home with everything in it, we travelled the US in our motorhome for what came to be 6 wonderful years! We drove our motorhome to Joshua Tree in 2004 to visit friends and never left. It is a beautiful place!

Christa Cranston purchased this house in 2005

Why Christa Cranston chose California Desert

It's seclusion but close proximity to town makes this a lovely location. We love that it sits on a dead end street, never having to see or hear through traffic. Your neighbors are the rocks and mountains this home sits up against. Peace and quiet..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us experience your house. You have excellent taste in everything from fence design to dishes. We felt right at home. It was so great to sit on the patio in the morning and evenings. We loved cooking in the kitchen with every gadget we could need. This house really has everything to make a perfect weekend where all you need is a trip to the grocery store and some good sneakers. We loved hiking in the park and coming home to our Joshua Tree house away from home. We loved it!

Cozy, clean and gorgeous

This was even better than we expected, super clean, decorated with good taste and care befitting the splendid location,

very well equipped kitchen, great coffee--a lot of care was taken to make it fun and comfortable for guests. This one stands out. Christa was warm and responsive without interfering with our privacy. Thanks for the wonderful time!

Beautiful isolated property

Our three-generation family had a terrific stay at El Coyote. The property is great for kids (games available and magical outdoor space). Christa was very responsive with all of our requests.

Beautiful, tranquil, had everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property and is everything the pictures suggest. We stayed here with friends wanting to experience the desert and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and really clean. On a funny note we tried to play trivial pursuit but it is approx 70 years old. It made for a good laugh though as we were all disadvantaged and we could blame something else other than the wine. Loved every minute of our two day stay here. We will def be back

An Oasis That Meets Every Need and Far Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family that spans 3 generations. El Coyote was perfect! We like to cook and the kitchen was beautifully designed and well stocked with equipment, we like to start the day with a morning stretch and there were yoga mats and a wonderfully open floor plan to accommodate morning yoga. We were traveling with a toddler and El Coyote managed to delight our sense of design/decor' as well as provide a child proof layout. We like privacy and the setting provided for a sense of ultimate calm and quiet. The cactus gardens and outside furniture/decor' were perfect. Inside, the layout provided not only comfort but a sense of style that is sure to span a wide range of tastes. Books, games, sound system and cozy throw blankets, abundance of towels and pillows and responsive hosts make El Coyote a difficult place to leave.

Exceeded expectations! On the door step to Joshua Tree National Park. A+++

  • 5 of 5

El Coyote was the best decision we made on our trip. It was a great sanctuary to recover after we pushed ourselves to do the long hikes through the Park. Altogether, this trip was a memorable one for us and hope we can return again soon with kids in tow.

The house was immaculate, well-decorated, and amenities were well-stocked. The patio and outdoor seating areas were a great way to enjoy our meals in the desert environment. The hot tub made for excellent soaks after long hikes through the park. Privacy was no concern for us with nice blinds around the patio and plenty of space from the nearest neighbor.

Try something different like rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park! In May and October is the Joshua Tree Music Festival- both are amazing fun.

For the art seekers, check out High Desert Test sites, Open Studio Art Tours, Noah Purifoy outdoor museum, JTAG art gallery, 29 Palms art gallery.

For the the open minded, try the Integratron and the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, Instant Karma yoga studio, BhaktiFest, ShaktiFest and the Joshua Tree Music Festival!

For the outdoor enthusiast there are lots of hikes in the park, the Andromeda Society for stargazing, and the Keys Ranch guided walking tour.
