Wonderful Joshua Tree get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Morning coffee on the deck enjoying the 360 degree views from the ridge was a fabulous way to start the day . The house was spacious and very well equipped. We loved all the art on display, just sorry not to fit in a visit to the owner's studio. The house is conveniently located to access Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and Pioneer Town but also away from it all.

Beautiful place, great kitchen and space

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to get together with family. Beautiful landscaping. Our only feedback was that the internet was slow and we couldn't watch the Final Four!
