About the property

Cabin, Studio + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps2-6)

Step back in time to this one-of-a-kind desert hideaway located on five private acres, with incredible views of the mountains and Joshua Tree National Park.

The bungalow is situated in among desert boulders and Joshua trees. The western entrance of the National Park is about two minutes away, or you can just walk up the wash and you will be inside the park boundaries. Some say the location is magical.

The Bungalow offers a unique and RUSTIC desert experience with all the comforts you require. Cuddle up in front of our wood-burning stove--we provide the wood--or go out to our great patio, complete with gas BBQ and a fire pit. Indoors, you'll enjoy cable TV, a large DVD movie library and a Bose CD player. Retire on a comfortable queen-size bed dressed in clean linens.

The Bungalow features a Keurig single cup coffee brewer with an assortment of coffees and hot chocolate. The kitchen is stocked with all the pots, pans, and utensils and spices you'll need to cook your meals, indoor or out. 

You will be inspired by the beautiful 360-degree views while reconnecting with the essence of the natural world. The dawn skies and the evening sunsets are a photographer's delight. The days are typically sunny and the star-studded night skies are nothing less than magnificent. Astronomy buffs will find plentiful constellations and planets traveling across the evening skies. 

The Bungalow is popular with our local wildlife, too. Throw out a little critter feed in the morning--also supplied--and you'll be visited by doves, quail, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits and more. You can walk the miles of desert trails or go rock climbing within walking distance of the Bungalow. After a long day of adventure, play a game of horseshoes or kick back on the patio with your favorite beverage. We've built an oasis in the desert with a funky vibe that is both peaceful and invigorating.

About Cary Ezell

I'm a contractor and decorative artist with many interests. I have a passion for collecting vintage road relics, which explains the vintage motel signs, old gas pumps and other yard art located on the property. I love exploring the desert and spending time with my family and friends.

Cary Ezell purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Cary Ezell chose California

I have been visiting Joshua Tree ever since my youth and told myself that one day I would have my own desert hideout. I found this property just steps outside the park boundaries and fell in love with it. To be able to open the doors and feel and smell the desert breeze, to hear all the sounds of the birds and other creatures is peaceful. I'm very happy to be able to share with others the beauty and serenity of this desert oasis .

What makes this bungalow unique

Experience the stunning natural beauty of the California desert as it envelops you at The Bungalow in the Boulders. take in colorful sunsets, the star filled night skies and the quiet solitude of the rustic, yet fully equipped retreat. Located within 2 hours of Los Angeles, The Bungalow in the Boulders provides a unique escape from the stress of daily life and an entrance into one of the finest National Parks in North America.

Bungalow glow

  • 5 of 5

This place is MAGIC! It was very private and had room to explore. Honestly, you can find many surprises and keep busy on this property without ever leaving.

So many antiques and vintage signs.

The bottle house was so very special.

There was a rock garden, little benches and seating areas begging one to sit and zen out.

The stars at night, the neon, the fire pit, the coyotes howling made the night so very special.

Best part was the vintage playground with a huge slide and seing set and old school merry-go-round.

Cabin was neat, clean and airy. Every possible need was met. Cary was s great host. We will be back!

Thank you!

We wanted a unique place to stay at Joshua Tree and Bungalow in the Boulders did not disappoint. Meeting the owner and learning about the items he collected was an unexpected treat.

A gem in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

When we booked we knew we were booking a great place but Cary and family created a space with great energy. What a beautiful place with added pluses like firewood for fires and feed for all the critters. The bottle room was just dazzling in the morning. Great acoustics! Thank you for giving my wife and I a place to just relax.

Fabulous In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled the world over and this is the best place we have ever stayed. Don't expect 5 star luxury but what you get is a fabulous rustic experience. The owner must have been collecting items for a life time and has them all on display for you to enjoy. The wildlife is wonderful as well as the scenery and peace. It's really a different world and I will be back as soon as I can. Thanks Cary for letting us experience your vision. He has thought of everything you may need and even left wood for the fire. Do not hesitate.......book today x

Great weekend get a way spot

  • 5 of 5

It was over 100 degrees outside, but the swamp cooler kept us cool in the mid July heat. This is a great location to visit Joshua Tree Park. Bring your camera because the property has huge amounts of character. We didn't sleep in the bottle house but we woke up early and went out to enjoy the beauty. The stars are gorgeous, and desert animals do come by to hang out.

The kitchen is stocked as well as you should expect, we did most of our cooking on the grill because of the weather. The bed in the house was comfortable and all other amenities were in good working order.

Owner was responsive to questions and very nice, we hope to stay here again.
