About this listing
2.5 hours from Los Angeles, this sweet house is stocked with all the amenities & surrounded by raw expansive desert. Features many charming details including a vintage wood burning fireplace and a dining room paneled with windows. A perfect getaway.
The house features two bedrooms with 2 king size beds, a pull-out full size couch that sleeps two, an enclosed patio-style dining room overlooking the desert, a fully renovated kitchen and bath, and an outdoor fire pit and jacuzzi. The house is uniquely situated in a very private and remote part of Joshua Tree a 20 minute drive from 29 Palms Highway.
Of note: the last two miles leading up to the house are graded sand. You don't need 4-wheel drive to access (although if you do have it, that's great)--otherwise, just go slow ;) .
Guests have access to the main house and surrounding outdoor space. There are some quirky structures on the land (not uncommon in the desert). Namely, a vintage bus and some no-longer-used livestock pens. We ask that you love them from the outside, but don't venture into them (for safety).
North Joshua Tree is an extra-special part of the region, neighborly, but very private, with huge sweeping views of the Joshua Tree valley. A quiet, remote, spiritual and calming environment that is close to all that the National Park has to offer.
Several roads leading to the house off the 29 Palms Highway are not paved. Neighbors have requested that people drive slowly. (During wet seasons an all-road vehicle with 4 wheel drive is ideal.)
Other things to note
The house is wonderfully private, in part because it butts up against 1000+ acres of military land. Interaction with 29 palms marine base is nil, but you will see posted signs that let you know that the land to the north belongs to the US military.
Have fun, be careful of candles, don't leave fires burning when you leave the premises, smoking is fine but only outside, enjoy the stars.
