We had an amazing time here at the Roca Visit... The perfect desert abode for our annual girls trip. Patio yoga sessions, catching epic sunrises + some great dinners in the cozy living room, thank you for creating a space that made it possible. See you again next time!

A Perfect Desert Experience

  • 5 of 5

Roca Vista is one of the nicest homes my family and I have rented. The house was very clean and comfortable, and safe for our two young children (3 years and 9 months). The decor of the home has a tasteful modern feel, but is not overdone like so many other JT rentals. The garden design perfectly complements the natural landscape of the property, and there were more seating areas than we expected. The kids and I had many peaceful meals out on the porch. The views of the property from both the inside and the hot tub literally kept us housebound. This is the first time we visited JT and did not make it to the actually park!

Additionally, Christa was extremely professional, thoughtful and helpful. The company website also has excellent information about the area, and the home has a good selection of books about JT.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are happy you enjoyed the many seating options at the Roca Vista. Out of the four homes we manage, this house gets the most guests saying that they never even left the house to go into the park! With the Bartlett Mountains for your backyard and the extraordinary views, it is a hard place to leave. We hope to have you again!

Perfect Cottage in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Rosa Vista and could not have been more happy with our stay. The artistic attention to detail through out the home made it a pure joy to sit back and relax after full day of rock climbing. Joshua Tree National Park is just around the corner, as us the little town for quick bites to eat. The quiet at Roca Vista made for the ideal place to meditate on the porch in the morning and soak in the hot tub under the stars at night. We will definitely be back!

Luxury in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

The details the details the details!! The owners thought of everything when creating this beautiful, peaceful, removed, relaxing getaway. I truly felt at home in this very well-appointed rental. The hot tub was perfect on the cold winter nights of our visit, and we wanted for nothing inside the house. It was impeccably decorated and cleaned. Highly recommended!

Everything in its place.

  • 5 of 5

The privacy at Roca Vista may not seem apparent as you drive through the streets leading up to the home. However, from the moment you shut your car door at the top of the drive, the seclusion begins to quietly envelope you. Perched above any other home in the area, the house affords a nearly 270 degree view of the Mesa. Night sky littered with stars. Comfortable firm bed, couch and living space. Well appointed kitchen. Minutes from the park but miles from any tourist. We had sun, we had clouds, we had rain. Light flooded in when we needed it, blocked out when we didn't. Raindrops peppered the roof all night while we had a small fire inside. Magical. Stuff of novels, truly.

Would recommend highly to any couple or two couples going to Joshua Tree. Completely worth every penny. The house is also caringly marked with little notes all over that make it very easy to stay there.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay Megan! I also love to hear that you were able to experience all sorts of weather against that hillside- I love the clouds when they roll over the mountain and the sunrise views to the east. Such a peaceful place. We hope to see you again!

Great Joshua Tree experience

  • 5 of 5

The immediate view of this house is breathtaking. It's perched on the side of a mountain, down a long dirt road and set apart from any other houses. The interior is fantastic, and we made good use of the cozy wood burning stove. The hot tub is great as well, especially on those cold desert nights. The house is close to downtown Joshua Tree, and not far from the national park, Yucca Valley, or Pioneertown. Christa answered any communications quickly and clearly, which was a huge plus. Overall, we had a great time.

Groovy House in the Desert

  • 4 of 5

A great house for spending time in the desert and visiting the park. Close to the Noah Purifoy art museum. Clean and comfortable. Watching the sunrise from the porch is a must. The owner was very responsive with answers to our questions. Looked at many different houses in the area and glad we picked this one!
