Our casita is located on 2.5 acres in a tranquil desert location, Joshua Tree, CA. Located about 10 minutes from the national park, restaurants and shopping. Surrounded by mountains, the setting is tranquil and beautiful. It is perfect for stargazing, watching sunsets and relaxing on the patio. The property includes extensive gardens and attracts butterflies and birds. Casita is a separate private guesthouse efficiency style with its own kitchen (with coffee provided) and firepit area. A recently added outdoor fireplace and hot tub are perfect for nightime gathering. Plenty of parking and areas to explore. The queen bed is separated from the living and kitchen areas by a partial wall. The couch in the living area is a double size sleeper sofa. There are two large patios for viewing both sunrise and sunset. Hawks, rabbits, & hummingbirds can be seen on most days. This is a beautiful place. We think you will agree.

About DENISE & MICHAEL REILY
We first traveled to Joshua Tree with our kids in 2002. We didn't come back until 2016 and couldn't believe that the love we had for this place; the Mohave desert, the national park, Palm Springs still held true. So we decided to invest in a vacation home. We hope every visitor to our Casita Mariposa experiences the magic of this place. There's nowhere like it!
DENISE & MICHAEL REILY purchased this House in 2017
Why DENISE & MICHAEL REILY chose Joshua Tree
The Sante Fe style adobe buildings and surrounding gardens make this property comfortable and tranquil. The 360 degree views of mountains make for spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

An Amazing Escape from Reality
My Girlfriend and I spent our 7 year Anniversary here at Casita Mariposa. We had been dealing with a lot of stress and were looking for a way to just get away from society temporarily. Casita Mariposa was the PERFECT escape, it was exactly what we needed. The home itself is incredibly inviting and cozy, the garden around the house is gorgeous. I took a few strolls through it myself. We went in late November so it was COLD, but the heater did a great job keeping the house warm(it takes a moment to turn on dont worry). It is easy to feel alone and away from the world here, but at the same time the town is close by. The Fireplace and Hot Tub combination was blissful. Listening to the fire crackling, lounging in the Hot Tub and just staring at the stars was probably the most relaxing experience of my life. It was a very memorable Anniversary and we look forward to coming back. Denise is very accommodating and responded to me quickly when I had any questions, she is very nice and a reasonable person.
Cute, comfortable and great setting!
Comfortable, clean and great setting with night sky, snow capped mountains and hot tub. Denise was very easy to work with. Our stay was wonderful! Enjoyed easy access to Joshua Tree.
The most beautiful landscape in all of Joshua Tree!!
When pulling up to Casita Mariposa, I couldn't have been happier. The property was absolutely stunning. We spent 80% of our time outdoors because there were so many things to look at and appreciate. The hot tub was a huge plus, especially being located next to a fire pit. We saw about 3 massive shooting stars while stargazing in the hot tub. A moment I'll never forget. I will def be coming back next time I make my way to JT!
Peaceful desert paradise
My sister and I came in for a few days to explore Joshua Tree and we loved your Casita. The house is beautiful adobe style, cozy and comfortable for our stay. The courtyard was a peaceful paradise to watch the sunrise, sunset, or the hummingbirds and doves flying through. The views of the desert sky are amazing and this property was a perfect place for our trip.
Look No Further Than Casita Mariiposa in Joshua Tree
What a wonderful little oasis in the desert. Owners provided everything we needed...kitchen fully equipped. We had brought along coffee and spices for cooking. But, we didn't need to. It was all there! Plenty of towels provided, soft and cuddly throw draped over couch. Many little touches around the casita making it very homelike. Bed was comfortable and, OMG, sheets were soft and oh so cozy. Our favorite were the two patios for sitting outside. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. We did not use the hot tub or the barbeque, so can't comment of either. Enjoyed walking the gardens. Parking couldn't have been easier. Pulled up right in front of gate, then just a few steps to unload. Frig was already cold for us, ice was in the tray, BOOK, BOOK, BOOK, You won't be disappointed!
Best Vacation Spot!
We had an incredible weekend here! Perfectly located to both town and the park and super easy to get to, even at night. The house was comfy and well taken care of. I wish we could have taken more advantage of the hot tub, but loved sitting outside and drinking coffee. The hosts sent very helpful info and were extremely responsive. Counting down the days until my next visit here!
