About the property

1 Bedroom Cabin On 2 Acres - Rural And Private And Conveniently Located

This is a one bedroom, one bath cabin located in the Flamingo Heights area of unincorporated Yucca Valley. Just one block off Old Woman Springs Road (Hwy 247) it is located out "in the sticks", but is easy to get to and has amenities that are close. The owner lives on the property in a second house.

The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, gas stove, electric convection oven/toaster and a coffee pot. It is well stocked with condiments and all the utensils you could need.

WiFi (although not the speediest) and Direct TV are provided.

The cabin is a cozy 760 square feet and has a big bedroom with a King-size bed.

Our next door neighbors, Lucy and Ethel, are sometimes a little loud, because their owner Suzie is a late sleeper. These donkeys let her know when they are hungry.

At night, you can see so many stars it's breathtaking. That is, unless it's a full moon.

This is your little oasis to relax, explore and enjoy the high desert.

About Kim Davis

Like you, I stayed in a vacation rental in the Joshua Tree/Yucca Valley area on my first visit to the park in 2012. I came back several times and enjoyed a number of vacation rentals. The Park and this part of the high desert kept calling me. I love this place so much, I moved here October 2014.

Originally from Colorado, I prefer warm weather and have spent most of my adult life in Southern California or Tucson, AZ. I enjoy the desert life.

Since moving to Yucca Valley I have been renovating the two structures on the property - the cabin and the main house (where I live).

Kim Davis purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Kim Davis chose Yucca Valley

This property has two structures - the main house and the cabin. The cabin has it's own patio and a little yard. The property is surrounded by livestock, including a lama. It is the rural and rustic setting that is peaceful and enjoyable. You feel like you are in the country. The good news is, it's only one block of dirt road off Hwy 247, so it is very convenient; town (Yucca Valley) is only 10-15 minutes "down the hill".

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is quite sizable - 760 square feet. The bedroom is as big as the living/dining/kitchen area. The wood burning stove, with its little window, is the best fireplace and heater! July 2016, I've added an air conditioning/heat pump unit that keeps the place very cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. The kitchen is just perfect for two or three people and has plenty of spices, utensils and basic supplies.

The owner lives in the main house and can be as present or absent as you desire.

The best thing about this place is the patio. Sitting outside when the breeze is blowing through the giant pine tree is so calming and pleasant. It's a little slice of heaven!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I've come here twice now and have enjoyed my stay immensely each time. The cabin is quaint and lovely, but I spend most of my time on the patio watching the fire and gazing at the desert landscape and hummingbirds and rabbits that pass by. The fenced in property allows my dogs to run freely and we all always have a great time. Kim is always very friendly and responsive to emails. Would recommend for a home base for a day at the park or as a writing retreat or place to relax and catch up on some reading.

Wonderful Experience in the heart of So Cal Desert!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our dog spent a couple of days in Kim's cabin. It was an amazing experience. Very quiet, clean and comfy place to stay and enjoy yourself. We loved sitting outside watching the sunset, feeding the birds and enjoying the warmth of the cute out door fire-pit. Our dog enjoyed Kim's place more than us!

The cabin is very close to Joshua tree national park as well as close to several amazing dog friendly hiking trails. Kim has some good ideas where to take your dog for hiking.

We went to Pioneertown mountains which had breathtaking views and our dog loved it as well.

Rustic and Restful!--great place to stay while visiting Joshua Tree National Park

  • 5 of 5

This cozy and rustic cabin is in a rural and very scenic area in Yucca Valley, CA.

We chose this spot because we wanted to be near Joshua Tree NP. It is close to several of the entrances (like within a 30 minute drive---so that is close by California standards!)) It is so quiet and peaceful. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in; and we travel a lot!! The kitchen had everything we needed for simple meals. Loved the woodburning stove. Kim has thought of everything and is very detailed oriented with directions and little things in the house.

We appreciated the charcoal that was available to us, as we opted to grill steaks one night. We enjoyed the beautiful birds and hummingbirds that visited. My husband loves to sit outside and smoke his pipe, so the little patio is perfect for that. Kim left a wonderful book on the coffee table which is a hiking guide to Joshua Tree NP. This thoughtful touch is a great attention to detail. There was also some bottled water and thoughtful snacks available. Highly recommend if you are in the area. Plan carefully if you need groceries--there is a "convenience store" about a mile away which is barely adequate in a pinch. There is a Walmart and a Stater Bros. grocery on Hwy 62 about 15-20 minutes away.

Finally, we found the cabin very private....we didn't meet Kim til the end of our stay when we wanted to thank her in person. A lovely and personable lady-a great host.

thanks again, Kim.....Kathy and Steve Belden (Canton, OH)

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is warm and cozy. The shower handle is new and works very well. Big, comfortable bed. The best thing is the beautiful scenery. This location is the perfect combination of being out in nature but close enough to people that you still feel safe. Kim is such a terrific host. So kind and accommodating. So many thoughtful touches in the cabin and front yard. This is my second stay and I hope not my last!

Super Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Every thing about the cabin was just perfect. The communication with Kim prior, during, and after, as well as the arrival, were all flexible and smooth. The cabin itself has everything you need...including lots of wood in every size...and kitchen supplies to easily make meals. The wood-burning stove easily heats the living space (kitchen and living area) and the bedroom has a heater/ac unit that works well. The setting is beautiful, and the outside space is inviting. I highly recommend this cabin!

Enter Joshua Tree National Park from the Joshua Tree Township entrance which is 18 miles from the door of your cabin. At some point drive out through the 29 Palms entrance and if you have the time drive through the entire park to I-10 and then have dinner in Palm Springs and head home up Hwy 62.

Pioneer town is a slice of the Old Hollywood West and home to the infamous Pappy & Harriet's. Stroll down Main Street and imagine Roy Rogers making movies in the 1940's and 50's. Then, go for a beverage and a game of billiards at Pappy & Harriet's.

If you like, play some cards or slots at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa which is 41 miles. Or if you really are a gambler, drive only 3 1/2 hours and 226 miles to Vegas.

You must grab your swimming suit and drive 28 miles to the Desert Hot Springs Spa & Hotel and enjoy an afternoon of healing, natural spring waters in a spa setting!

The Integratron is a structure that claims healing powers and is only 8 miles from your door. But, special reservations are required, make sure you call ahead. Or you can visit where it all started at Giant Rock (12 miles - 3 of which require a truck or a car with higher clearance).
