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 Joshua Tree Highlands

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...

Great location neat and clean. Well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. The driveway was a little rough. Other than that if you needed something Luna Vista had it. Very neat and clean!! Our family of 6 enjoyed Luna Vista for 3 nights. Great location for Joshua Tree NP. Cindy was quick to respond to our questions and even made a trip to turn lights on for our late arrival. I hope to visit again!

Beautiful and relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time at Luna Vista. It is a special property with sitting areas and trails from the back patio that let you explore the area. The house has every detail taken care of, the kitchen is very well stocked. I love the indoor outdoor living with the great pocket door and the out door shower. See you next time!

My oh my!

Overwhelming beautiful! The house is so comfy and lovely. Everything is there for you, nothing to worry about. Food recommendations are spot on, JT is adorable. The house is easy (once you get the hang of it) to get to. Use Cindy's directions!!! GPS will get you there but after a super bumpy ride.

Saw lots of creatures, amazing landscapes and quiet, serene quiet! The whole family came back recharged and relaxed. Thank you, Cindy for sharing your fantastic home!

What a lovely resort!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Luna Vista for the weekend. It's location makes it worthwhile the stay. The views from Luna Vista is simply gorgeous and is never a bore. Cindy has kept this property in excellent shape and with all do respect, we have maintained our stay as she would like. We couldn't be happier and it was difficult to leave! We have every intention to return to Luna Visa and relive our previous memories. It's a very special place and thank you very much for allowing us into your home, Cindy!

This house ruined it for all the other HomeAway homes

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best vacation home I've ever rented. Like everyone else said, the photos don't do it justice. The inside of the home is immaculate. So nice. Everything you could possibly want or need is there, including binoculars, a telescope, walking sticks, cowboy hats, wood for a fire, a cowboy tub, lounge chairs, a hammock, an outside shower. .. The view is beautiful. The attention to detail is impressive. I couldn't stop taking photos. We had such a wonderful time. No joke, an hour after we arrived my 11-year-old announced that it was the best vacation he's ever had. (We travel often). I must have said, "this house is amazing" at least a hundred times. I'd love to go back RIGHT NOW.
