Overview

About the property

Walk to art galleries, restaurants and only a ten minute drive to the park!

Our home has two bedrooms - one with a new pillow top queen bed and the other has new twin beds, accommodating up to 4 guests.

Pamper yourselves with our 100% cotton linens, down duvets, thick towels and a tub/shower with natural slate surround to soak in after a hike in the park.

Our living room has a cushy down sofa, lounge chair with ottoman and a flat screen Cable TV that you may use to stream video using our high speed WiFi for easy internet access during your stay in Joshua Tree.

You'll love our cool retreat that has an evaporative cooler instead of AC -- cools the fresh outside air with moist cool air inside! And ceiling fans in each room, too. In the winter months, stay warm and cozy using our vintage natural gas wall heater that warms the whole house.

Our full kitchen will make your stay comfy if you want to enjoy meals in. Side-by-side fridge, a gas range, microwave, and a new dishwasher for easy clean up. We've stocked the cabinets with all the dishes, glassware and cookware you will need, utensils and pantry basics for your use, too.

If you need to clean up after a long day in the park, we offer our washer and dryer for your use . We do have an iron and ironing board if you really want to spiff up before walking down to the Joshua Tree Saloon to enjoy a burger and catch some live music!

Interaction with Guests

You'll have the house to yourselves for privacy and enjoyment, but our manager is just blocks away to help with anything you may need.

You will love our home's close access to everything in town - art, music, restaurants, and the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. The Visitor's Center for the park is just blocks to the west and it's a quick 10 minute drive to the National Park's West entrance.

We're located just across from the exclusive Mojave Sands Motel and down the street from the gorgeous Coyote Hole, our stunning hiking area in south Joshua Tree.

If you need ride, we have a local bus within a block, we have cab service available and gas stations in town to fill up for your scenic drives through the desert landscape.

Why Stephen Mark Johnston chose California Desert

We discovered Joshua Tree two years ago while visiting family.

We fell in love with the open sky, cool desert nights, colorful people, Great food, and hikes in the JT national park.

We decided we had to have a second home in Joshua tree.

We love it so much and look forward to sharing it with you.

Cozy cottage right by everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a couple of nights while I visited Joshua Tree National Park. The cottage is super easy to get to and get around from - it's close to the park entrance and visitor center, as well as "downtown" Joshua Tree restaurants and shops.

The cottage is well-maintained, modern, clean, and comfortable - plus it has a great kitchen. The manager Stephen was very nice and had lots of good recommendations for things to do/places to go in town. I would definitely stay again!

Close to Joshua Tree National Park

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our two small children stayed in this home and found it to be very clean and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen made it easy to prepare and serve our own meals. Very close to the park, where we spent most of our time. Only drawback for us that it seemed to be in a run-down neighborhood that we didn't feel super comfortable walking around in. Host was very responsive to questions and was very well organized. Overall, a cute little home that suited our needs and was nice to come home to after a day of adventuring in Joshua Tree National Park.

Comfy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Well furnished and comfortable little house in the town of Josua Tree. Not too far from the Yucca Valley for shopping etc. Accommodated our needs perfectly and allowed us many days of hiking the Joshua Tree Park. Close enough to Palm Springs etc., for day trips and sight seeing.

Clean, cozy, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Cute and cozy cottage (we stayed during winter), walking distance to Joshua Tree restaurants and stores and convenient to the park entry. Very clean and comfortable. Well-appointed kitchen. Great shower. Stephen, the host, was welcoming and responsive. Good for couples or small family.

Comfortable, well equipped, well provisioned and well located. Good attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Joshua Tree, helped significantly by this delightful cottage. The owner met us at the cottage at the beginning of our stay and explained everything we would need to know. There was everything we needed for the week we stayed and we can definitely recommend the cottage to anyone else who is thinking of taking a vacation in Joshua Tree.

Adorable cottage in the heart of Joshua Tree

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sunburst Cottage over our wedding weekend. It was perfect for our three night stay. Not only are you very close to the park, but you're also basically in walking distance of so many great places in Joshua Tree, like Pie for the People and Joshua Tree Saloon. The manager, Stephen, was wonderful too - answered all our questions and gave us great restaurant recommendations. I would encourage anyone, including my friends and family to give this place a try next time they visit. - Sara and Tony
