About the property

3 bedroom, 2 full bath, solar powered house, outdoor hot tub, priceless land

It's like being in your own private National Park. Experience Joshua Tree desert first hand without neighbors. You're surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness. Hop on large boulders, explore miles of trails, observe active desert wildlife. IF YOU WANT DESERT ADVENTURE... THIS IS IT!!! It's an amazing, exclusive one of a kind property. Glamp away.

The home is 100% solar powered, off the grid, and with tasty well water. Discover movie props, Rock City and Coyote Hole.

It's only 2 miles from the town of Joshua Tree and 3 miles from the Western entrance to the National Park.

The house is comfortable and has everything you need. The WIFI is good and there's great cell service. Enjoy the wood burning hot tub, fire pit, and wood burning stove. Browse the eclectic library in the media den. The house is styled Mid Century Kitch.

Great for families, romantic getaways, friends' reunions, holidays, artists, rock scramblers, hikers, and those who want to get away from it all. It's very special for those who have a deep spiritual connection to nature.

Amateur PHOTOGRAPHERS: Take amazing shots. Bring a tripod and take photos at night of the stars and landscape.

STAR GAZERS. (Turn off all white light and only turn on the special red lights. That way you see much better in the dark.)

HIKERS: Take the path from the house down directly to the landmark COYOTE HOLE. Look closely and you'll see ancient Indian Petroglyphs, as the land has been populated for centuries by indigenous peoples.

Don’t miss ROCK CITY, a functioning outdoor set for a Survivalist movie project I'm working on. We've had many film and photo shoots. Clients include Calvin Klein 30th mens underwear campaign, Paul and Joe, Brooks Brothers, Doc Marten, Style Magazine, etc. Listen to the latest acclaimed album by Floating Points "Reflections -Mojave Desert" which was recorded here.

Matthew Patrick purchased this house in 1992

Why Matthew Patrick chose Joshua Tree

When I took a trip out to Joshua Tree Monument (now called Joshua Tree National Park), I fell in love with its, unusual beauty. It wasn't far from Los Angeles, and yet it felt like another world. I wanted to have land as much like the Park as I could. So I purchased a 2.5 acre piece in 1992. I camped on it often. My favorite thing was (and still is) to sleep outside under the stars.

As time went on, I bought the parcels around me. Personally the size and scope of it still blows me away. To walk the perimeter can take a day.

Strangely, or not so strangely, people tell me they become connected to the rocks in a primitive way. It helps them put life in perspective and is good for body and soul. I feel that way too. JTP has been a great retreat for myself and friends. Now, in 2012 I open it to you.

Every picture was taken on the property... guaranteed. You will take amazing photos too.

What makes this house unique

Joshua Tree is a spiritual center and High Desert Vacation Mecca. Joshua Tree Paradise is on a priceless 100 acre piece of property that is adjacent to the park.

There are many enjoyable and at times odd adventures to be had. Listen to live music at Pappy and Harriets. Go antiquing, and to the swap meet, where amazing stuff turns up.

If you're a rock climber, you already know Joshua Tree National Park is one of the most famous and amazing places to climb in the world.


Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much Matthew. Your beautiful slice of paradise is also my favorite place which is why I keep coming back so long as you'll have me. I'm no artist, just a stress filled guy who needs his "me" time. JTP is the perfect place. I find it calming and spiritual and it literally transforms me if only for a few days. I have checked out your other websites and the blogs and so on. Very fascinating! Those funny videos were great. What an amazing talent you have. Great work! And not to mention academy nominated for your short film.... PRICELESS!

Thanks so much for everything Matthew... I greatly appreciate you being so kind.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place with an interesting history and very close to park entrance. Definitely recommend this place. Road getting to the house is a little rough but it just adds to the appeal in my opinion.

Just can't get enough!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 6th time staying at JTP and it is truly as phenomenal as the 1st time.

The house is very cozy and has everything one could need. It was incredibly hot while there but early mornings and evenings were amazing. During the heat of the day the swamp cooler and fans inside the house made everything comfortable. The property (land) is beyond impressive and truly magical. For me it's a spiritual experience. It is truly peaceful, quiet and totally private. If you're looking to get away from it all but still be close to civilization, this is the place for you. I cannot put into words how much I love this place.


Matthew the owner is such a wonderful person as well. Such a pleasure, such a nice guy and totally responsive and easy to work with.

You're awesome Matthew... I'll be back soon!

We stayed at JTP for two nights with our 9 and 11 yo daughters. We all loved our experience at this magical property. The house was very spacious, clean, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We stayed during a major heat wave; the A/C unit and multiple fans kept us cool. We had so much fun exploring the property. It is absolutely beautiful. We can't wait to go back when it's a bit cooler so we can experience sleeping under the stars in some of the beds around the property. I highly recommend JTP for your visit to the Joshua tree area!

Unbeatable Privacy and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly one of a kind. If you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place. It's just a couple miles from Joshua Tree National Park, but there is enough exploring to be done on this property that you don't even need to set foot in the park—you can have 100 acres of hiking all to yourself. The photos don't even do this place justice—you have to experience it to know how truly special it is. We just got home and are already scouring our calendars to see when we can visit again.
