About this listing
Hawks View House in Joshua Tree is located in a secluded canyon 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. Hiking is available right out the back door, featuring back porch shower, fire pit and amazing views in every direction. A short drive to JTNP.
We rebuilt this 1950s Homesteaders Cabin from scratch. After jack-hammering and re-pouring the old cement floor, we wood framed inside the original cinder block walls to provide lots of electrical outlets and additional insulation. The cabin features two 10 ft. covered porches, metal roof and metal ceiling, new dish washer, gas stove, refrigerator and state of the art AC and heating. All new plumbing provides good water pressure for both showers (one outside), whirlpool tub and kitchen. Enjoy our starry night skies around the propane fire-pit. Grill up some veggies and steak on the BBQ porch. We have an information center with complementary maps highlighting points of interest and recommended local restaurants, shops, coffee houses, art galleries, theaters, health food stores and our local yoga studio.
The entire cabin is yours to enjoy. Your hosts are next door and a phone call away.
Interaction with guests
We strive to have you become a delighted guest and long time client. We're available when you need us and respect your privacy when you want it. Paul is a professional Nature/Landscape photographer (that's some of his work on the cabin walls), and is happy to share tips and favorite photo locations.
We are at the end of the road near the top of our hill inside a beautiful canyon. We have graded the dirt road for smoother access. Our local friends tell us they love to come and visit because of our unique location. We are only 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree and 15 minutes from JTNP. Our Information Center gives details on the local great spots and entertainment.
You need a car to get around, enjoy the full sized parking spaces at most businesses. We have a paved parking pad at the cabin.
Other things to note
Our altitude is about 3.500 feet above sea level. Desert temperatures can vary widely within 24 hours. Our daily temps are usually about 10 - 15 degrees cooler than Palm Springs due to the altitude. When hiking, a sun hat, long sleeve shirt and long pants are recommended to protect from brush and sun. Always carry plenty of water. We are happy to share safety information to help your stay be an enjoyable and memorable one. There is a local hiking and mountain climbing store where you can purchase desert gear.
