Extremely comfortable one-room cabin in great location
This cabin exceeded nearly all our expectations - it was recently updated and well stocked (pots, pans, salt, pepper, toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) and as soon as we made a trip to the Joshua Tree farmer's market (Saturdays) and the main grocery store (Stater Bros) we were set for the week. The furniture was comfortable, bluetooth speaker was great, and the patio extended the living space into a very private, large yard in front of the house. We primarily used the cabin as our home base and spent the days hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. There are two entrances to the park on side of the park the cabin is located - one in 29 Palms and one in Joshua Tree. (Although the cabin is very near to the park, you cannot just walk in by going down the road as those roads are private property, despite what you may guess from Google maps.) The cabin itself is located between the two downtowns in a very rural area, which we preferred, but it does mean it's about a ten min drive to stores, restaurants, etc. Mike was very attentive - checking in before we arrived to make sure we had the entry info, then after we arrived to make sure we were all set. Throughout the stay he was quick to respond to questions while giving us our privacy to enjoy the cabin. The only drawback in our perspective was that the cabin was a single (large) room, aside from the bathroom and laundry room, which means that the bed is in the main living space. We had not realized this and it made sleeping a bit difficult for our toddler. Looking back at the pictures I probably should have realized this but wanted to mention so others are aware that there is not a separate sleeping space if you need one. If you are vegetarian, a great restaurant recommendation nearby in Joshua Tree is the Crossroads Cafe. Kid-friendly, laid-back, diverse menu and great vibe. Even with the single-room drawback for us personally, I could not imagine that we would have found a better mix of location, atmosphere and price, and highly recommend this rental to others. (Thanks Mike!)
