Overview

About the property

Minutes From Joshua Tree National Park: 3-bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Home.

High above the village of Joshua Tree, only steps from Joshua Tree National Park. You will be mesmerized by the ever-changing play of sun and moon on the desert landscape.

Amenities include: Spacious great room with fireplace; Wi-Fi; flat screen TV with Roku, Pandora and Netflix for Internet music and movies; DVD player and collection of DVD classics. Open the twelve-foot window wall and experience the sights and sounds of the desert from inside the living area. The full size kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, new stainless appliances, a walk-in pantry, everything you need to prepare your gourmet meals, laundry facilities and a gas barbeque.

The master bedroom, in vintage Mexican décor, has a deluxe queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a sliding glass door onto the expansive covered patio. The master bathroom has a beautiful Talavera tiled vanity, walk-in shower and jetted tub to soothe those weary muscles after a day of hiking. Choose the Cowgirl room with its antique décor, two twin beds, ceiling fan, or enjoy the Cowboy room’s old Western décor, queen bed, ceiling fan, and sliding glass door onto the patio. The guest bathroom has a full shower and tub. All towels and linens are provided.

Luna Vista has central heating and air-conditioning, but the outside living areas will draw you outdoors - try the cowboy shower or a soak in a cowboy tub! There’s nothing better after a day of desert fun! And while you’re here, don’t forget to experience the meandering nature trail that will lead you around the 2.5-acre property. It may inspire you to continue hiking right into Joshua Tree National Park. Let us know in our wildlife log what creatures you encountered. With all this to see and do just outside your backdoor, you might never want to leave this magical place!

Why Cindy Beck chose California

Our family has been coming to and loving the Mohave Desert for 4 generations. When our primitive cabin of over 50 years burned in 2007 in a wildfire in the Eastern Sierras we were devastated. But from the ashes came this new home in the high desert at Joshua Tree! We have found another place of peace and refuge right next to the spectacular Joshua Tree National Park. We fell in love with the abundance of flora and fauna, the unusual and awesome geology, the glorious sunrises and sunsets, the forever views of the ever-changing desert landscape, the dazzling night sky and, of course, the beautiful moonrises…

What makes this house unique

The expansive views set this property apart from the rest! 360 degrees of awesomeness just steps away from Joshua Tree National Park...

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations at this beautiful, adobe-style house on a bluff overlooking the desert preserve. The highlights of our stay--- staying up till it gets pitch black and looking at the stars (saw 3 shooting stars-- never seen one before); waking up early and seeing the sunrise; hikes in the desert; the great local food.

We had a delicious Middle Eastern meal at Joshua Hookah Lounge in Yucca Valley. It is in a strip mall and has a hookah bar (not a great attraction for us as we all don't smoke); we went for lunch and there was no smoking--don't miss this!

A word about Cindy-- she was friendly and always available by phone and she has filled the house with comfort and good taste. The kitchen is well equipped (we did not need to bring any spices or seasonings).

Spend as much time eating outside and just lounging!

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! One of the best we've stayed at. You almost don't want to leave it is that great. Whoever did the interior decorating did such a great job. We loved all the little collections of things. One of the best parts is that it is very conveniently located right outside the National Park. We watched an endless stream of cars leave the park after sunset. Both nights we made dinner and although we even brought our own fancy knives just in case, everything we needed was already there and it was a pleasure to cook in. It felt just like my own gourmet kitchen. We were there right after it rained, which meant the unpaved roads were a little treacherous, but that's Mother Nature's fault. Still, I would recommend driving a small SVU rather than a sedan. This is truly a magical, special place. Highly recommended.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our family favorite! We have stayed multiple times and absolutely love it. The views, the outdoor spaces, the cleanliness and attention to detail can not be beat. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and the bedrooms and layout are perfect for our family of five. It is an amazing place to come back and relax after a long day of hiking Joshua Tree or to lounge around in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee on the back porch as the kids explore the property. Thank you for sharing your home...what special memories!

simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Luna Vista. The view is splendid, the home itself is very well designed, very well outfitted and extremely comfortable. Lots of space outside with several places to sit and admire. Brilliant desert nature and 360 degree view. The contact with the owner was quite positive and friendly.
