About Patrick Hasson

I'm a writer, filmmaker, and artist who fell in love with Joshua Tree soon after arriving to Los Angeles from Philadelphia. I've traveled the world and find Joshua Tree to be one of the most unique and beautiful places on Earth. Seeking to create a space that stimulates creativity and rejuvenates the soul, Rancho El Reposo is a retreat like none other. Whether your a vacationer, rock climber, writer, musician, explorer, artist, yoga enthusiast, or just looking to escape the madness of life...Rancho El Reposo is the place for you.

Patrick Hasson purchased this house in 2013

Nice quiet property with space to spread out and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Close to park entrance and some local food. Easy and mellow. Comfortable except for synthetic fragrance dryer sheets and candles which are definitely easier to deal with than the electronic synthetic air scent gunk plugins. We put the candles in cupboards and closets while we were there
