Great clean location close to the park
While I never actually met Ela, she had great communication via e-mail and later text. If you are planning on going to Joshua Tree Park, this is very close, about 2-3 blocks off Park Rd that goes directly into the park. The house was very clean, and comfortable. We slept 5 there, which is about the max given the number of beds and using the couch. If you coordinate with Ela, she has an air mattress or two to take advantage of lots of extra space in the house and studio just a few feet behind the house. All of the appliances worked, we moved the provided space heater out to the studio to keep it warm. There were several quail, doves, and rabbits on the property. They seemed well fed, talking to the neighbor confirmed that the community feeds them more than enough. I suspect that some bird feed placed out the back door would get you all of the attention from the local animal population that you ever wanted.
Great Location with amazing VIEWS!
