Relish the inspiring sunrises, breathtaking sunsets, awesome moon rises, and starry night sky from this special getaway cabin. Immerse yourself in nature, including Joshua trees, blooming cacti, and a unique rocky ridge line. Close to Joshua Tree Village. 15 minutes from the National Park entrance. Newly restored 50's cabin perfect for solo guests or couples. Beautiful hikes out the back door, or just stay in and re-center. Perfect as a home base for exploring the area or as a creative retreat

The space
An extraordinary place to hang out for a day or a week. The cabin sits on 10 acres of native landscaping. A great escape from the heavily traveled park entrance area, you will arrive via a well-maintained dirt road across highway 62 to get to your getaway cabin.

Minutes from Joshua Tree Village, yet away from the crowds. Stark, beautiful and wondrous…so different from urban life. Magnificent views. Hiking and mountain biking riding starts right behind the property.

To the stars and back…If you are lucky enough to be here on a full moon or meteor shower...grab a glass of wine, sit out on the patio and you will be spellbound!

Happiness is found in the most simple things, like quiet luxury. We have completely renovated the interior of the cabin. These are retreat-worthy accommodations. Kitchen is well outfitted for cooking your own meals. Pleasant dining area, comfortable queen-sized bed, and sparkling clean all around. The living room couch folds into a futon if needed. We provide wireless internet. The cabin is equipped with a wall air conditioning unit, fans, and electric heaters. Detached garage parking is available.

The cabin is co-located on the property with the owners’ home, each building having its own separate and distinct area of the land. The cabin faces away from the main house, creating its own private sanctuary. Sahara and Pepito are the owners’ little dogs who are very friendly and love to come say hello and stop by for pets.

Where you’ll be

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Taking a walk in our neighborhood is remote, unique, and very beautiful. Full-arc rainbow sightings are not uncommon. The neighborhood is known as "Windy Gap", which is a unique, quiet pocket of peaceful simplicity that is off the beaten path of the average tourist trek. The property is on the north side of Hwy 62 that is opposite the Park entrance. This means the stellar view from the cabin looks out over the valley where Joshua Tree nestles in. If you are feeling adventurous, there is protected federal BLM land for a 4 mile loop hike right out the cabin door. Much of the undeveloped area around the neighborhood is protected by the Mojave Desert Land Trust.
