About this listing
Roomy Mid-Century Modern house. Views for miles through large picture windows. House is great for large groups. Well equipped kitchen. BBQ patio and fire pit areas for outdoor dining and stargazing. Very close to Park and downtown JT.
My priority is to make your stay in Joshua Tree a memorable one. The listed price is for the main house only which sleeps 6 in two bedrooms and a queen daybed in the living room. There are two full bathrooms. The 270 sq. ft. detached studio room with a queen bed, queen sofa bed and bathroom with shower is included with 7 or more people. For week-long and month bookings, the studio is included in the price.
This spacious and cozy home with great views is located in the heart of Joshua Tree Village just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park Entrance Station. A quick 1/2 mile drive or walk and you're in the middle of Joshua Tree's small downtown of shops, eateries and galleries.
Integrated great room and kitchen floor plan gives that extra spacious feeling. Enjoy the vaulted exposed beam ceiling, natural stone and gas log fireplace, two extra large comfy sofas, and queen-size daybed. In all this there's lots of cozy comfy spaces to help you relax after a day of exploring. Large windows give panoramic views that go on forever. The east facing windows take in the magnificent desert sunrise and a view of Copper Mountain. See the JT village lights twinkle in the night or gaze up at the countless stars and see the Milky Way.
Sit out on the front porch or gaze through the huge picture window for a view over the Village of Joshua Tree. The kitchen window and back patio look out onto rugged BLM land that borders the National Park. The back patio has a gas BBQ grill and a picnic table that's ready to go for your outdoor cooking and dining.
The entire house has been uniquely remodeled for a clean modern feeling while preserving aspects of the houses' 1950's vintage. Tastefully furnished with modern vintage pieces and artwork made by local artists. The roomy kitchen is well equipped with lots of cooking supplies and new appliances- gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen table expands to seat 10 people.
Hi-speed Wifi Internet also included. The central heating and AC system heats or cools the house quickly. Linens and towels are provided. There is a high quality front load washer and dryer.
For a nearby adventure, just a short hike, is a not so well known place called Coyote Hole. There you'll find Native American petroglyphs and a small canyon with a natural spring. Coyote, bobcat, and even a mountain lion have been reported to roam this area.
