Spacious and cozy home with great views, located within walking distance to Joshua Tree Village downtown and Park Visitor Center, just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park West Entrance Station.

The Space

My priority is to make your stay in Joshua Tree a memorable one. Read my guest reviews to hear about their experiences. Please send an inquiry first before you send a booking request.

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. For an additional fee you get the 270 sq. ft. detached studio that sleeps 4 more people on a queen bed and a queen size sofa bed. The studio has it's own bathroom with shower. Groups larger than 6 will need to book the studio and is included with the additional per person charge ($50 minimum for the studio.) For week-long and month bookings, the studio is included in the price.

Spacious and cozy home with great views located in the heart of Joshua Tree Village just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park West 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 fireplace (with remote controlled gas logs), two large comfy sofas, and queen-size daybed. In all this there's lots of cozy comfy spaces to relax in after a day of exploring local attractions. Large windows give panoramic views over the basin. The east facing windows take in the magnificent desert sunrise and a view of Copper Mountain. See the village lights in the basin twinkle in the night or look up at 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.

Make your stay special. Come and experience all that Joshua Tree has to offer while staying in comfort at the Mountain Vista Desert Retreat.

My calendar is always up to date, so go ahead and book with confidence.

Interaction with Guests

I am available at all times to answer any questions or concerns and I live nearby in town so I am quick to respond to emergencies. It's my pleasure to help you with suggestions of where to hike and off the beaten path adventures known only to locals. If you want to experience something special outside of the Park feel free to ask.

The Neighborhood

Joshua Tree Village downtown is a unique locally owned and artist inspired area. Be sure to take some time to explore the many interesting shops and eateries along the Highway. There is an excellent Certified Farmers Market happening on Saturdays 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM when the downtown is at it's most lively and you can get a taste of the local community flavor.

Getting around

There is a bus line running along Hwy 62 with access to Yucca Valley and 29 Palms.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Thomas was a great host and his house is absolutely beautiful. I rented the house for my fiancés birthday, and it couldn't have been better. The house is extremely clean and has great amenities like a grill and fire pit. Thomas was a very responsive host, and responded within minutes of me contacting him. I highly recommend staying here! Thanks again Thomas.

  • This place is absolutely gorgeous, with so much character! There are so many ways to entertain yourself even when you stay indoors, when you stay at Thomas' Joshua Tree home - there's plenty of unique decor to admire, and tons of board games! Thomas was a great host, he was prompt in answering all of our questions, and he was extremely accommodating. The place was clean, cool, easy to find, and it felt safe. It's just minutes away from the park entrance, right off of Park Blvd itself. It definitely made our Joshua Tree experience more memorable, and more pleasant. We will definitely come back again!

  • Fantastic place. Thomas was a great host, and Joshua tree is only minutes away.

  • Beautiful house. My family had a great time staying here.

    June 2014
  • Thomas has a wonderful home! He was very accommodating and flexible with our arrival time, and everything went over quite smoothly. The gorgeous vistas of Joshua Tree were a wonderful sight to wake up to each morning.

  • Our whole family loved the house. We were 5 adults and 2 six-month-old babies, and the house was a perfect size to fit for all of us. Two large bedrooms, and two decent sized bathrooms, plus an additional queen bed in the living room.

    The location is ideal. Only minutes from the heart of Joshua Tree town, and only a few miles from the park entrance.

    The house is spacious. We enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunsets from the front porch. We used the extra large grill to BBQ.

    We'll book this house again next year.

  • This place looked amazing from the photos so I booked it with high expectations. These were actually exceeded! Not only is the house modern-looking and gorgeous, but it's also got really comfortable beds (the two in the bedrooms have great mattresses), powerful A/C that can make the house a comfortable temperature when it's 100F outside, and various other happy finds. It's also very close to Joshua Tree National Park and to the Crossroads Cafe - great for climbing in the morning, showering, then getting some great food afterwards! The six of us who stayed there had a fantastic time and will definitely be back.

    May 2014
  • This place was amazing. When we came, the internet was down due to an earlier power shortage, and Thomas came in shortly after we notified him and fix everything. We loved this place and would definitely come back here again.

    April 2014

    April 2014
