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!

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.

Exceptional!!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience of renting this house was great, from communication, to follow up, to directions, to ease of entry to a binder of all the info we could possibly need awaiting us on the counter. The house itself is immaculate and nicely furnished. Although we didn't cook the kitchen is fully stocked. We did make use of the hot tub (shower first!) and the out door patio area to relax. Absolutely delightful! The location is perfect to explore JT, Palm Springs and Mount San Jacinto SP. with many fun restaurants and bars close by. We highly recommend staying here and hope to do so again in the future!'

Perfect spot to getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to have a getaway/retreat with a couple of friends and this fit the bill to a "T". The house is tucked away with sweeping views from the living room/dining room areas. Lots of outdoor space, nicely landscaped and furnished. They have created a lovely space with great energy. Christa was easy to deal with, fast to respond and helpful with every question/issue that came up. We will definitely be back!

Perfect place in Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this wonderful place – everything was great. Wonderfully equipped kitchen, the grounds so fun to wander in, and the hot tub just right at the end of a great day in the park – will definitely be back!
