The space

You can't be closer to home and get further away. Rancho Mojave is an ideal lover’s getaway only 2 1⁄2 hours from LA. This is a unique desert rental minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park.
This custom made gorgeous 1,200 sq. ft. house, La Casita, full of character and personality is ideal for nature lovers or just city dwellers who want to commune with nature, take hikes in gentle trails, admire the awesome sunsets, or simply relax in the hammock.
Our backyard is the thirty-two thousand-acre Pipes Canyon Wilderness Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park is just a short car ride away. We are surrounded by acres of gentle walking paths, lots of vegetation, hiking trails, bouldering and rock climbing. If you are in the mood for partying or meeting other people, only in 5 min. ride you will find historic Pioneertown, home of Pappy & Harriet's Palace, the famous restaurant/music club.
We are at about 5,000 feet above sea level so we have pleasant temperatures & breeze in the Summer and snow in the Winter.

Our brand new house comes fully equipped with 2 bedrooms, walk-in closet, kitchen, bathroom with shower and tub, and plenty of tiles, arches & front and back patios to experience another world come alive.

Rancho Mojave is a cute little desert home that worked quite well as we were attending a wedding just up the road. It's a remote area, so don't come expecting phone service (although we heard that AT&T is ok). You should be enjoying the desert anyway! Cecilia sent lots of information and had good local advice. We enjoyed our stay.

Our stay was great. Nice little remote house near Joshua tree. The pictures do it justice. It is very well kept, clean, and welcoming to our stay. Only feedback to other visitors is that phone reception is poor (very remote location) and we could not get internet access from within the house (wireless router is in neighboring house).

The house was beautiful - clean, quiet & beautiful views! It was very easy to get to and "check in" was simple & welcoming.

Response from Cecilia:
With the very serious drought we have in California, tub baths are an absolute no no, so that's why we DO NOt encourage filling up tubs with hot water. Sorry. Cecilia

It was my first time to the California desert and it couldn’t have been more perfect. La casita at Rancho Mojave was so lovely. Communication with Ronald, Cecilia and Karen the caretaker was excellent. And the location close to Pappy & Harriets was convenient. Thanks so much for everything.

Cecilia greeted us on our arrival, and was very warm and welcoming. We absolutely loved Rancho Mojave! The setting was lovely, the decor was very nice, and everything was very clean.
