First of all, this was my second time using HomeAway and even though I don't have a ton of experience with other owners, Gerhard made the process simpler than checking into a hotel room. The home was just as described and was spotless and fully stocked (even with a wide array of hot sauces, which we apppreciated). The home and courtyard are situated in such a way that you can only see the (very few) neighbors from a few areas of the property. This provides guests with an abundance of privacy and peace and quiet. We spent our days hiking in the park, which was a 10 minute drive away, and our nights relaxing and stargazing by the fire in the courtyard. Groceries are a short 15 minute drive away in Yucca Valley and the town of Joshua Tree is less than 2 miles away. I would recommend this home for anyone seeking seclusion and relaxation or even a home base for adventures in the park nearby. In fact, we liked it so much that we arranged with Gerhard to stay an extra night. He is very responsive and made our stay very pleasant.
