Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Yucca Valley - "Quail Crossing" ~ Park views

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. 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, desert tortoises, hawks, bobcat and more - 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.

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 hamlet 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 California Desert

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

What makes this house unique

I got a big kick out of the cowboy spa and then, 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!

Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

The property owner: Geri

Geri created an amazing home. If you are planning a trip to Joshua tree, I definitely recommend staying here . The house was immaculate and stocked with everything you need... she even left us a welcoming bag with a lovely bottle of wine.. Geri takes pride in her property and it sure shows!

The Property: Quail Crossing

This unique property offers its guests the experience you are looking for when visiting Joshua Tree. The open layout of the home is extremely inviting and also serves as a great place to turn on some music and dance the night away.

The property itself, is the most magical part. You walk out to the backyard to and there is an amazing fire-pit to enjoy with the rest of your guests. There is also a reflection area, a hammock and my favorite... THE COWBOY TUB. After hiking all day through the National Park the first thing I looked forward to was hopping in the tub. The piece and quiet of the surrounding mountains allows you to think and just relax... it was truly amazing.

When calling it a night, the beds in the home are extremely comfortable! Geri sets you up with a lovely guest basket filled with water, toothbrush, towels and and many other things that you may need.

I look forward to my next visit to Joshua Tree and I will definitely be staying at this home again. Thanks again Geri!

Tranquil Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is ideal for those seeking peace and tranquility in the desert. From the moment you walk in you find the home welcoming with its cleanliness and vast modern living space. This house is well kept and well appointed with furnishings and all the extras you would find in a five star hotel. After hiking at Joshua Tree National Park (about ten miles away), you look forward to coming back to this house to relax in the cowboy tub or strike up the fire pit and enjoy the star filled sky. In the morning, start your day with a cup of coffee on the back porch and watch the desert come alive with wildlife -- road runners, quail, humming birds, jack rabbits, coyote. You even have acres of your own mountains in the back yard to hike. I would suggest coming to the house first to check out everything in the kitchen before going to the store to stock up, because there is a lot provided. This owner has thought of everything to make your stay most enjoyable.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home nestled in the hills outside of Joshua Tree. We were close enough to get to things as needed, but far away to enjoy some real peace and quiet. The house was clean, and bright and the hostess Geri ensured that every need of ours was met. She even had a gift bag waiting for us. A definite must see!

The perfect getaway retreat to unwind and rediscover

  • 5 of 5

Quail Crossing was exactly what we were hoping for. We wanted some solitude without being too far away from Joshua Tree national park. The house was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and Geri has everything so well organized. It was such an easy and enjoyable experience for my wife and I. I would thoroughly recommend this VRBO

Unbelievably gorgeous oasis in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes when you stay in a rental house, you can tell it's just a money-making venture. But THIS place is clearly a HOME, created with love and meant to be shared. I couldn't believe how well-stocked the kitchen was (including fresh local coffee and a French press) and how our every need had been anticipated and taken care of. We felt Geri's warmth and kindness right away as we walked in to find flowers and wine waiting for us! Aside from that, the house is totally gorgeous and in a breath-taking location. We all loved relaxing in the hammocks, grilling dinner, gazing at the stars, and spotting quail and jackrabbits. The grounds are beautifully kept, with lots of paths and decoration, but also some lovely rugged hills and mountains. The house is a very short drive from Joshua Tree National Park and Joshua Tree Village, but also feels perfectly secluded and restful. The bunk beds were perfect for our kids, and they loved reading and resting on the beautiful white couch. The beds were so comfy, and the bathrooms stocked with really nice supplies. Geri checked in to make sure everything was okay, but there wasn't a thing in the world we needed--everything was perfectly taken care of! I wish I could wake up every morning to such lovely views of Joshua trees and cholla. This was by far the best VRBO experience I have ever had. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Cam, your review made my day! We are thrilled that you "get" the love and care that goes into creating this space for our guests. Thank you. From my perspective, you all took such good care of the property and I am so grateful. Everything was in its place (and with children, too!) and everything was tidy. You are 5 Star guests! Please come again. (-: geri
