The space
Cactus Moon Retreat sits at about 3,500 feet above sea level on 2.5 acres of desert oak, piñon and juniper studded desert on the north flank of the Little San Bernardino Mountains. Just up the road from the property is the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park and just to the west is the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve.

The property offers a stunning, unobstructed vista directly toward the tallest mountain in Southern California – San Gorgonio Mountain. Visible to the north are desert mountains that define the southern periphery of the Sawtooth Wilderness, with Pioneertown just beyond. The property may be in the Town of Yucca Valley but it is cradled on three sides by some of the most marvelous and wild high desert terrain in California.

Cactus Moon Retreat is the ideal venue for:
• Retreat hosts looking for a healing space
• Couples seeking desert solitude
• Friends determined to commune under star-filled desert night skies
• Families gathering for special reunions
• One-of-a-kind weddings
• Artists hoping to push through creative boundaries
• Companies wanting a group of employees to soar

Dogs may be allowed but the renter must first contact the owner for discussion. There is a flat $60 per dog fee. Please review our guidelines in the house rules as well. Please no cats because of the owner's allergy.

◦ CLEANING FEES
Airbnb's standard cleaning fee is only $240 for the main house, but goes up to $350 when all 6 rooms are booked. This fee is baked into the nightly rates and is not charged on top of anything. Considering Airbnb's limitation on the cleaning fee line item, we need to state its total here for accounting purposes.

    I am very pleased to be able to share this unique property with you. I am a psychologist who was born and raised in New York City. But for over 25 years I’ve been living and working on the west side of Los Angeles. I have long dreamed of finding a high desert retreat that would help nourish and restore me, my family, friends, and community when we could break away from our hectic daily lives. I was overjoyed when I found this one-of-a-kind property in December '15 and I found it enormously rejuvenating to breathe new life into it – stripping away clutter and opening the house and other structures so they embraced the remarkable high desert landscape that defines this extraordinary property. I hope you find the same peace and sustenance I have found here. -Caron Post, Owner www.airbnb.com/h/cactusmoonretreat -Managed by Brad Klopman The Cohost Company @thecohostcompany www.airbnb.com/p/cohost
