Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

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!

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

Great rental. Roca Vista was just as promised. The unit was clean and well appointed. The fresh coffee beans were an excellent addition. We loved sitting in the hut tub and stargazing at night. It is far enough from town for privacy while still having easy access. We have rented 2 to 4 VRBO type units a year for nearly 15 years. Roca Vista may well have been the best one yet.

Desert Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and decor, the gardens and seating all around the private property high up on a hill! Sunrise was amazing from all the big picture windows all around. It was fun hiking up the mountain behind the house. Loved Joshua Tree National Park. All excellent, especially the hot tub, fire, and stars!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Linda! I agree, sunrises are the best from this house perched up on the hillside with a panoramic view of the valley below (and of Joshua Tree National Park). Glad you made use of all the outdoor seating! We hope to see you again...

Joshua tree & stargazing

Great stay, great location, great stargazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Sara! I think the Roca Vista is the best for stargazing as well since the house is built right on the side of the mountain. It's amazing to see the Milky Way at night! We hope to have you back soon...
