Set on approx 2 boulder filled acres overlooking the valley, the Desert Retreat boasts stunning views, exposed beams, Spanish Saltio tile & a warm open floor plan, inviting you to come rest, explore, restore & create! This 3 bd 2 bath easily sleeps 6 & is located just enough "away" to unwind and yet close enough to all the desert attractions to stay unwound;) Just a short drive to Joshua Tree Ntnl Park, Pioneer Town, Pappy & Harriet's, & Hawks Landing Golf course. Come enjoy the Desert Retreat and book w/ us today.
Come make s'mores by the campfire and enjoy the starry night skies, breathtaking views of the desert, and many wildlife sightings. The Desert Retreat is situated just off the beaten path on/near a dirt road on a mountain overlooking the valley. Set on approx 2 acres it's riddled with boulders, wildlife and fantastic views that fuel your desert attraction. The home is furnished and decorated by local artists, craftsman and antique shops here in the desert.
In the dining room come sit at a hand crafted, farm table or it's matching bar, built by a local artist/craftsman and enjoy the full horizon ahead, as you look through the "wall of windows." This is my favorite spot to sit and work on art as the views of the sunrise/sunset over the desert landscape literally inspire your soul.
Enjoy cooking in a fully equipped kitchen with brand new refrigerator with filtered water, oven, microwave, toaster, crock pot, blender, tea kettle, coffee maker and a Nespresso Citiz Espresso machine. We have all your basic pots/pans and cooking utensils.
Want to grab a blanket and layout? Feel free with our reclining lawn chairs or enjoy a good book as you listen to the wind blow through the trees and sway on a hammock.
Want to explore without getting in the car? We recommend walking along the dirt road behind the house. It opens up to some fantastic rock formations and beautiful views of the San Gorgonio Mountains.
The Desert Retreat is a sweet haven for our family and hope you will find it to be so for yours.

Weitere wichtige Infos
Our property is situated on a lookout that has breathtaking views. I think it's fair to mention, there is a dirt road that passes on the side of our house. You will occasionally see passerby's, some who live beyond our house and other adventurers going out to explore the beautiful, vast desert. This has never bothered us, but wanted to make our guests aware.
Also I want to note, because this property is not a permanent residence the water does sometimes sit in the pipes. We recommend all our guests flush the line out by letting the water run for a few mins upon arrival. The local Water District has checked the water at the property and said it is perfectly clean. If you prefer filtered water to drink that is available to you at the refrigerator.
Our property does not have tv, internet or a land line. (However we do get reception for our cell phones.) In creating the Desert Retreat, we've chosen to make it a place to unplug from the constant buzz of life and truly be a get-a-way. We have provided games, Bluetooth speaker for your music and some art supplies for your entertainment.
This is our home and we are extending it to you as our guests. We want you to enjoy yourselves during your stay and we want to enjoy having you, so please be kind and courteous to show it the same care you would your own property.
Out of respect for neighbors, (sound carries in the desert) we ask that quiet time would be observed from 10 pm to 8 am.
Absolutely no smoking in the house, outside is fine.
If you make a fire it is only allowed in the fire pit provided. Be sure to put it out before leaving it unattended. Be aware of dry brush lying around to keep away from embers that jump out of the fire.

No filming or professional photography allowed unless otherwise consented to by owners, upon written request.
