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. 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!

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!

Perfect Vibe

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific few days between hiking Joshua Tree and enjoying Geri's home/property. The pictures don't lie and neither do the prior reviews. The house is very clean and extraordinarily well organized. I want to fly Geri to New York to organize my kitchen. The house feels very private and the property lends itself to relaxing, star gazing, sitting at the fire pit, climbing the rocks in the back, etc. The house is especially good for 2 families which we were. There are 3 bathrooms which is amazing. Two main bedrooms and a room in the middle with bunk beds which was great for the 4 kids (even the 2 teens didn't mind). Geri was also a lovely host, available for guidance at any time. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Beautiful Quiet Escape in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here over Thanksgiving break. Our family traveled from Colorado for a week of climbing in Joshua Tree, but we also wanted a home base with a kitchen and more room for everyone. The house is wonderful and the property is spacious with a great deck. I stayed home one day while my family climbed and it actually took me about a half hour to get used to the silence. It was so amazing and such an incredible experience to have such quiet and peaceful surroundings. The only noise were the quail that came across the property all day and other birds.

The house has a great set up with three bedrooms and three baths and a great open floor plan. It worked very well for our family. Geri is an amazing host and upon arrival we were welcomed with a gift basket with wine and sparkling water and individual baskets in each room full of little thoughtful things that we might need or may have forgotten. When I mentioned that I loved the quail, she had a container of feed delivered so that we could attract them to stay on the property. It was so much fun. She was amazing at all texting back and answering my questions. I texted her to ask where the toaster was and she replied that they did not have one and that we could use the oven. I replied with "Ok, thanks" and we did that for that morning. When we came out of the park that evening, there was a brand new toaster on the porch! She told me that she wants to be sure her guests have everything they need. It was amazing.

We definitely recommend this home. Remember it is in a quiet environment and there are neighbors spread out over the surrounding area and noise travels, so you do need to be quiet during quiet hours. It was great to come back to a house every day after climbing in the park. The peacefulness and quiet were such a pleasure for us.

Nice Digs

  • 4 of 5

Me and my two sisters stayed at the house so we all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms which was very convenient and the layout and décor was beautiful. Very comfortable and peaceful setting. Enjoyed the hammock and the backyard and we used the bbq to entertain more family members that came. We would recommend the house very much. Because of its remote location no Wifi or cable was available which we would of preferred. The owner was very accommodating and helpful during our stay.

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.
