By listening to our past guests, we know that most of you are coming here to spend time with friends and loved one(s) so we have thoughtfully created spaces for enjoying time together - comfortable seating to share long nights, fully stocked kitchens for sharing meals, fire pits to gather around, games to entertain, and a long list of things to do in the area, so that you may explore the desert

All of our homes are located in the town of Joshua Tree just minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park and are professionally maintained on a regular basis. Our guests are guaranteed a personal, unique, and intimate experience. Most importantly, if there are any emergencies, we are just minutes away to help. Our reviews posted here are from previous guests, please feel free to read them and ask questions. Thank you for considering us.

Escape from the city life and experience the solitude, stars and endless blue skies with our desert vacation rentals. Just 120 miles from L.A. and 30 miles from Palm Springs, Joshua Tree is a short drive to an oasis of discovery. Its nearly perfect year-around weather and smog free air attract people from all over looking for a place to get a way from it all.

Joshua Tree National Park welcomes over a million visitors every year. The park offers rock climbing, hiking, sight seeing, biking, camping, bird watching, star gazing, and exploring. This amazing park looks simple at first glance but its surreal geologic features will have a lasting impression. Want something different? Within a few minutes are hot springs, horse back riding, gambling, outlet stores, tram rides, atv riding, and more.

Climbing:

Rock Climbing is a sport that people from all age groups can enjoy (we climb with our nieces and nephews ages 5 to 18) and I have heard countless stories from people that have used climbing to overcome addictions, build self confidence, get in shape and to be in touch with nature.

Hiking:

Hiking in the desert can make you feel worlds away from the city life. With the wide open space and prehistoric looking geography you can’t help but feel a sense of wonder for this amazing place. There are so many places to explore from old mining camps, historic homes built into the rocks, hidden oasis where Indians once settled, view points where you can see in every direction due to the smog free air and so much more.

Star Gazing:

Anyone who has been to the desert knows what we are all saying when we brag about our desert night skies. According to the BBC, 99% of the continental United States (and two thirds of the world's population) never see a truly dark, starry sky. The Mojave Desert is one of the last places left in the United States where you can still see the Milky Way with the naked eye. At all of our rentals, there is plenty of outdoor seating and lounging to take in the night. It is one of the most special things we can offer our guests during their stay- a piece of peace that they can take with them anywhere.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Desert Casa was very relaxing. We enjoyed every minute.

The house was very clean. The evaporated system is awesome. Prior to getting there I was concerned if house would be cool enough. Once we entered the house the coolness was very inviting. Loved the pool and spa had lots of fun out there. Definitely would stay there again.

This desert getaway satisfied everything we were looking for. The pool and hottub are devine, the kitchen is extremely well appointed, the space is just perfect! I will suggest you bring a sleep mask if you wanna sleep past sunrise, it gets Bright! My wife and I were here alone but another couple would fit fine. Looking forward to our return visit!

It was just as described, which was very nice. The area was quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the well maintained house. It was clean and in very good condition. Everything worked and the wi-fi was fast and reliable. Plenty of dvds and the television had plenty of channels.

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Joshua tree national park.

The city of Joshua Tree does not have much. But a short drive to Yucca Valley had everything you might want.

Great home, comfortable and clean, nice and quite setting, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

All of the positive reviews that we read before booking the Desert Casa, were spot on. We had a lovely vacation to Joshua Tree National Park and just hanging around at the house and on the rocks and trails behind the house. The house was true to it's description, very clean and comfortable. The endless windows allowed us to enjoy the views from every angle. And the scenery behind the house with all of the rocks is just fantastic and so relaxing.

The house is close enough to town that we were able to swing by and pick up some pizza at the local pizza joint, but when you're on that back deck or in the hot tub, it feels so secluded!

Christa was very helpful with any questions I had before arriving and there is extensive information including maps, guide books, information on what to expect in the area, etc. at the house itself.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed as well.

We loved the hot tub too!

Can't say enough good things about this place. We loved it so much, we wanted to extend our stay by a night, but not surprisingly it was already booked up!

If we ever make a trip that way again, I wouldn't hesitate to re-book!

Super comfortable and pleasing

  • 5 of 5

Christa, We enjoyed your property very much. The big room with its BIG kitchen was great for us as we cooked all our meals there, having brought food for 4 nights. Once we were there the only way we went was up the hill, the short trip to Joshua Tree, where we found wonderful hiking. I liked the decorating you had done ( except for the cat picture), it was interesting, not overdone. So nice to come "home" after a day of hiking and have a soak in the hot tub. Everything clean and well supplied. We will definitely come again and have already recommended it to relatives. Only problem was that something is very loose in the stove hood and made a big ! racket when the wind was blowing ( which was a lot of the time). My husband made a short term fix, covering the vent with packing tape, but it did not last long. Thank you for the stay in your orange house!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we would happily welcome you back again. We did send our handyman to the house to take a look at the vent which he tightened a few things on..just waiting for a windy day to see if it helped! Thank you for letting us know:)

Oasis in the desert

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Desert Casa. The house is well situated in Joshua Tree a short drive to one of the main entrances to the park. After hiking most days, it was great to return to the house, go in the hot tub (and unheated pool for the more adventurous) and relax before cooking dinner. The house is well-appointed and also includes a great selection of movies. Shopping is nearby in Yucca (Vons -- make sure to pick up their discount card for great savings from any cashier if you don't have one) and there is a good vegetarian restaurant near the house -- Natural Sisters Cafe -- that can also do take-away sandwiches for hiking. Phone in your order to minimize the wait. We would certainly return to Desert Casa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Daniel. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay at the Desert Casa. I love that it is walking distance to town and yet the back yard of the house opens up to hundreds of acres of untouched lands. I hope you were able to explore behind the house and take advantage of the solitude. Until next time...
