This lovely property is close to the open high country of Sunfair Heights in North Joshua Tree, about 20 minutes from the village center. It has 360 degree unimpeded views of serene desert & star-studded sky.
Built in 1958 & newly remodeled, this mid-century homestead sits on 5 acres of natural habitat. Here is peace and quiet, rolling hills & glorious sunrises/sunsets. This home is especially good for writers looking for a place free of distractions. Some dirt roads, but no 4WD needed.
There are two bedrooms and one full bathroom, all newly remodeled and equipped with modern appliances and USB outlets. All rooms have large picture windows. It is equipped with a washer & dryer & dishwasher. There is filtered water, and the refrigerator has an ice maker for your convenience. Each room is set up with its own split-duct AC/Heating unit with individual controls. There is a firepit outside with seating. We now have wifi for our guests.
The entire home and grounds (5 acres of open land).
Interaction with guests
I live in the area and am available to help with any issues that may arise, and to offer advice on local events, restaurants, hiking spots, etc.
Other things to note
This area of Joshua Tree is sparsely populated and has dirt roads which means that there is virtually no traffic or neighbor noise. The roads are bumpy but safe if you take them at a slower speed and no 4 wheel drive is necessary.
Check-in time is 3 to 9 pm exclusively. Please arrange travel to coincide with this window. There is no night porter, key must be picked up from me at my house before going to rental only during this time. Please be advised that traffic on a weekend extends the usual 2.5 hour trip from LA to 3 to 4 hours and that there are no streetlights which makes it difficult to find the rental in the dark, so it is advisable to arrive before sunset.
- Fire pit to be used only when no wind is present.
- A/C and heater to be shut off when guests are not at home.
-Use only plastic spatulas in non-stick pans.
-Clean the dishes and appliances after use. The cleaning fee does not
cover dirty dishes or pots which are to be put in dishwasher and turned on.
-Desert tortoises seek shade in hot weather, so please check under your car in case one has settled there. If so, turn on the engine and wait for it to depart. Do not touch it, or pick it up.
Check-out time is 11:00 a.m. Key must be returned to Sylvia's mailbox by 11:30 a.m.
