About this listing
"Mid-century Rustic", rock walls with unusual decor. Right on the border of Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree. Just far enough out - nice desert vistas, but still a few short miles into town.
The space is mostly one big room with high ceilings - sitting area on one side, queen memory foam bed on the other, and a separate kitchen area. Please note there is only a space heater, and its extremely cold in the winter! In the summer there's an evaporative cooler, and not typical air conditioning.
It's a tad rustic and "funky", but has the basics one needs for an affordable getaway.
Wifi and a small TV with a DVD player and some movies - no cable.
The location is great - only one lot down from a paved road on the border of Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. It's a quick and easy drive into town for restaurants, shopping and the National Park (you will find that many homes out here, while secluded, take forever to get to and from!). 5.4 miles to the park visitor's center.
There's lots of joshua trees on and around the one acre property, and beautiful views of the sunset and sunrise.
Note: the reviews mention goats, but the girls have retired from airbnb work and are now on a big farm with other goats.
The kitchen area has a small/medium refrigerator, microwave, hot plate but no stove. There's a charcoal BBQ on the patio. Fireplace cannot be used, otherwise it's space heaters and can get chilly in the winter. For the summer there is a large evaporative cooler, which many people prefer to air conditioning in the desert climate. It puts moisture into air, rather than pulling it out.
Interaction with guests
The studio is attached to the main house where I live, but I usually just have it up for rent when I'm not in town. If I am home, it's separate entrances on opposite ends of the house, and very private.
If out of town, I will be sending access info, and you'll have the whole property to yourself! (main house is locked up - 2 guests max, don't get any bright ideas about a party)
Right on the border of Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, it's the best of both worlds - space, privacy and views but still an easy quick drive to all the shopping and restaurants if needed.
Just a few houses down from the main paved road - enough for peace and quiet withOUT a long bumpy dirt road drive! About 4 miles to the National Park welcome center, 2-3 miles from shopping centers.
Other things to note
While it's mostly quiet and the sounds of birds, you may occasionally hear or see neighbors. That goes both ways, so wrap up the drum circle by 11pm, please.
For safety reasons, use of the fireplace is not allowed. No smoking inside.

I'm an artist and split my time between LA and Yucca Valley, and am a host in both.
I love Echo Park - I can be so close to the hustle bustle of one of the greatest cities in the US, yet still have hummingbirds on my porch and occasional raccoons or skunks in the yard. I've tried to leave, but always come back!
