Property Description

This is a sprawling 2500 square foot Mid-Century home custom-built in 1959 located on 4+ private and fenced acres with electric security gate.

Relax with your friends and family in a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home decorated in an eclectic mix of antique, vintage, rustic, and modern - it's a time warp with modern comforts.

Every room is over-sized - 2 large bedrooms with plenty of privacy between them, dressing room sized closets, new Cal King beds and 2 full bathrooms - both with original tile. Master bath has very interesting sunken roman shower/tub while the guest bath has a separated shower and comfortable bathtub for soaking.

The kitchen is fully stocked and features a new oven and refrigerator with ice maker as well as a coffee maker, blender, mixer, air popcorn popper, crock pot, and pots, pans, utensils, and staples such as spices, sugar, flour, condiments, etc. If you have a special food preparation requirement then just ask - the equipment is probably on site. For example, there is an Omega Vert350HD juicer which does a great job on both fruits and vegetables. Enjoy your meals around a maple table with seating for up to 10 in front of a wood-burning fireplace. There is also a gas barbeque outside on the patio and and a picnic table for al fresco dining!

Living room has a large wood-burning fireplace, 11 foot long couch, lounging cushions, and a wall of windows that look out to beautiful views of mountains. There is a queen memory foam bed in the living room just off the den which is perfect for reading or extra guests.

The den has 2 comfy twin size day beds, flat screen television wired to Netflix, Apple TV, record player, CD/DVD player, and an interesting collection of books, CDs/DVDs and hundreds of records for use during your stay. There are 3 vintage stereos in the house - each with record player and AirPort Express AirPlay device for wireless or hardwire connection to your IPhone, IPad, or MAC.

Yoga mats and a massage table are provided.

A washer and dryer, iron, ironing board, and clothes steamer are located in the house for your use.

Enjoy wandering the gated grounds, warm yourself in front of the fire pit, soak in the 6 person hot tub, or relax in the hammocks on the patio. Write your great novel on the vintage typewriter or catch up on the TV shows and movies you never have time to watch.

A dart board, horseshoe pit, and bean bag toss game are provided for drinking sports aficionados. Cards and chips and various board games are also provided - had a good game of Life, Monopoly, Chess, or Scrabble lately? Come on out and slow down!

We also have a newly remodeled Guest House on the property available to rent separately. Please see our separate listing Joshua Tree Modern Guest House for details. The Guest House has a living room area with fireplace, queen bedroom nook, 1 or optionally 2 twin beds, newly remodeled bathroom, full kitchen and wood-burning fireplace and a hot tub. For groups of 6+ we suggest that you consider renting both the Main and Guest house together.

There are 2 hot tubs on the property. The round hot tub is located closer to the Main House and is dedicated for use of the guests of the Main House. The Jacuzzi J-LXL square hot tub is located in a more remote area past the Guest House and is available for use if there is no one staying in the Guest House.

We are just a few blocks away from the art galleries, restaurants, and bar in downtown Joshua Tree and about 10 minutes away by car from the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

We have hosted weddings with up to 80 guests on the property. There is plenty of parking and outdoor spaces to accommodate large gatherings. Parties, weddings, or events with 10 or more attendees require specific prior permission. The property is in close proximity to the Joshua Tree National Park and the village of Joshua Tree. The village of Joshua Tree offers a variety of great restaurant options and art galleries. Pappy & Harriets in Pioneertown is just a 15 minute drive and is not to be missed for great music and food and drink.

We love to share our experiences in the Joshua Tree area with our guests but are very respectful of your privacy. As such, the amount interaction with our guests is entirely at our guests' discretion.

We hope you can come stay at our property soon!

Superb desert experience. Privacy, ALL amenities, even ones you would never think of. Thank you!

If we were to buy/build a house in the Mojave, and furnished it with all the love that this house provides, it would be a paradise, both day and night. Spacious, private, impeccable taste, comfortable. From the dart board to the turntables and exquisite album collection, to the sprawling landscape and sky full of stars. It transcends space and tim... Read More

Loved it

Amazing house in beautiful setting. The vinyl collection is wonderful and we loved the artwork and mid century furniture. The only thing that could be better is some updating of the pots and pans and baking trays in the kitchen - some of them have not been treated well! We made it work and enjoyed great dinners sitting around the huge dining table... Read More

Great stay here

This house was perfect for a weekend in JT. Close to the park entrance, right in town. Comfortable rooms, open kitchen and tons of vinyl.
