About the property

You are transported into another world that is private, peaceful and serene.

Quail Crossing, a rare property at the end of the road, is adjacent to hundreds of preserved acres; your backyard playground for a unique and memorable experience. The property boasts 23

healthy Joshua Trees and over one hundred Yuccas. Magnificent views of Joshua Tree National Park and the mountains to the west. Early risers wake up to glorious sunrises with Quail families and Jackrabbits playing outside your bedroom window. Then take your pick from the multitude of outdoor seating and hammocks and enjoy the silence as you watch for lizards, antelope squirrels, coyotes, hawks, bobcat and more - ( a desert tortoise if you are lucky!) that thrive in this protected area. Dreamers enjoy breathtaking sunsets around the warmth of the outdoor fire-place. The bats come out to play and then the sweeping night sky full of shooting stars. Ah, idle inspiration!

Newly built, the home offers clean, simple, light filled spaces: a modern kitchen, lovely dining area to enjoy a good meal with family and friends, skylights, upscale furnishings, indoor Jacuzzi tub, convenient laundry facilities, flat screen TV for DVD's only, stereo music device pairing, two very comfortable queen size beds, and two sets of bunk beds and verandas. This home will sleep up to 8 max.

Create the get-away experience you've always wanted.

Cowboy spa available from May to October.

About Geri Girardin

I am a university professor and a Trader. Having experienced the joys of both travel and staying in other people's homes, I have the right perspective to put my guests at their ease. I am a Canadian. I grew up in a village north of my university city, Edmonton. When I picked up and moved to Australia, a new world opened up for me. Since then, I have enjoyed experiencing various cultures and cuisines.

Geri Girardin purchased this house in 2015

Why Geri Girardin chose Joshua Tree

I loved this property from the moment I became aware of it. I like the Santa Fe style of architecture. I think it fits into the desert landscape. Additionally, the home is furnished in a modern, clean unobstructed way which will surely delight you.

What makes this house unique

Initially, I got a big kick out of the cowboy spa. However, when evening fell and the stars appeared above the twinkling lights of Joshua Tree in the distance, it took my breath away. As a city girl now for many years, I had forgotten how vast and deep the sky is. I mean, I know this intellectually but to experience it viscerally - wow!

Peaceful desert retreat at Quail Crossing

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING time!! Your home is a peaceful, beautiful treasure. Everything we needed to relax and enjoy Joshua Tree was provided. The hammock was a great place to chill out in the afternoon after getting wet in the Cowboy Tub. We enjoyed watching the quails, roadrunners and jack rabbits that were abundant around the property. At night, The Milky Way rises in the skies as the sun sets. The Perseid meteor shower peaked during our stay, and our 12 year old got to see the Milky Way and 5 fireballs in one night. He cried, he was so moved by the beauty of it.❤️

We left Quail Crossing with full hearts. Your home has changed each one of us in a beautiful way. THANK YOU for having us and sharing your home and kindness with others. We would love to come back!!

3 generations of family visiting from England to this stunning hideaway.

The reviews certainly don't lie.

Thank you Geri for being the perfect host.

We loved the serene location observing the pottering quails and jack rabbits & of course the stunning sunrises & sunsets.

Extremely clean, beautifully decorated & exceptional personal touches throughout. Perfect location for exploring Joshua Tree and then returning to your own blissful sanctuary.

Would suit couples & families alike.

Will definitely be looking to return in the future.

Fun weekend for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 families of 4 had a fun weekend here. Bedding was great; we enjoyed looking at the quail and many other birds and wildlife on the property. There was plenty of room to play games and cook meals. Too cold for us to use the cowboy spa, but the property is gorgeous! Geri made us feel very welcome.

Beyond Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous stay at Quail Crossing. Upon our arrival we were greeted with the sweetest welcome note, a bottle of white wine and Perrier. Everything was sparkling and very organized, labeled and easily accessible. Geri, even put together a great guide to the house and the surrounding regions. We were constantly surprised by lovely notes and sweet touches, like a complementary tea drawer and a very complete toiletry kit.

The location and grounds were beautiful. We loved walking up the hill in the back of the house to watch the amazing sunrise and sunset.

Quail Crossing is a magical place that Geri transformed into a 5-star stay!!!! Will recommend to all our friends!
