Enjoy Joshua Tree while staying in a vintage 10' Shasta caravan, star gazing under the night sky and watching the sunrise over the open desert expanses. Only 8 minutes from the village and less than 15 minutes from the west gate of Joshua Tree National Park.

The space
Durning COVID-19 pandemic, the County of San Bernardino is allowing short-term rentals to operate provided:
-Occupancy of each rental is limited to members of a single household
-Rentals are cleaned and disinfected prior to arrival
*Some businesses are still closed in town or have limited hours. If you have been knowingly exposed to COVID-19 or are not feeling well, stay home. Joshua Tree will still be here when you feel better and you can enjoy it!

If you want to camp in the desert but need basic necessities like water, electric, and wireless internet then this vintage 10' Shasta caravan has what you need to simplify your visit to Joshua Tree. Take a hot shower inside of an old water tank with skylight and use a flush toilet! Watch the sunrise, sunset and experience a starry night sky! Comfortable king sized bed when combining the two twin bench seat mattresses. Sleeps 2 people comfortably, 3 cozy, and four snugly.

Guest access
SUPPLY: The Chiquita on Flamingo is equipped AIR CONDITIONER and a HEATER, a large outdoor kitchen for those who like to spread out! You will find a two burner propane camp stove, pots and pans, french press, electric tea kettle, (we supply coffee), cups, plates, utensils, dish soap, and a mini fridge. There is even a closet to hang your clothes. Shampoo and body soap is supplied. The couch cushions are two (2) IKEA twin mattresses used to convert into a king sized bed and we supply the towels, bedsheets, and pillows & cases but you must request them or you won't see them. Outside you will find a BBQ grill for outdoor grilling and there is an outdoor table and chairs for preparing/ eating your food while your partner lounges in the hammock!

BRING WITH YOU: Charcoal briquets or other cooking fuel, aluminum foil, fire starter, small 1lb propane tank for the double burner camp stove, paper towels (we supply toilet paper), flip-flops for walking to the shower, and your personal products, flashlight/ headlamp (we respect our dark skies and light pollution ordinances in JTREE).

DESERT DRIVING TIPS: Joshua Tree has A LOT of dirt/ sandy roads. Most of them are well packed dirt roads but if you find yourself stuck on soft sandy road, do not gun it! Start slow, and maybe even let a little air out of your tires. The CHIQUITA ON FLAMINGO is only 0.75 of a mile off of a paved road but located on a dirt road which adds to the desert experience! Any car can handle the dirt road including a Honda Fit, Fiat, or a Toyota Prius. * The speed limit down the dirt road is 25 MPH (please respect our neighbors!) FOLLOW MY DIRECTIONS I SEND YOU and only use the GPS as an assist. The GPS is known to take people in circles out here.

Other things to note
**IMPORTANT: IF the weather will be below 32 degrees, (a few times during the winter it can get cold in the HI-DEZ ) the water will be shut off during freezing temps. Please bring water with you. The water can be run through the drains but the main water supply feeding the shower, sink or toilet CAN NOT be on. Once the temperature goes above 32 degrees the water can be turned back on.

Location

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Joshua Tree is full of artists and musicians, free-thinkers, mixed with Marines from the military base in neighboring 29 Palms and not to forget desert rat characters who grew up in the desert or have been in the desert long enough to add plenty of character to the Joshua Tree mix. It makes for a good variety of personalities! In the village you can find locally owned cafe's, boutiques, thrift stores, plenty of antique stores and art galleries.

The views are amazing on the edge of this 2.5 acre plot of land. It is only 8 minutes from the village of Joshua Tree and less than 15 minutes from the west entrance gate of Joshua Tree National Park. NO light pollution at night so the stars are incredible at night!

This is a great location, 0.75 mile off the paved road, any car can easily get to. It is only 1.5 miles from Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, The Integritron and Giant Rock is 13 miles away, 12 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park, Pioneertown and Pappy and Harriets is 20 miles, Joshua Tree Retreat Center 10 miles and the Dhamma Vaddhana S. Cal Vipassana Center is 15 miles away. There is much more to do, just ask and we would love to help you find these places and more.

We are a couple of nomads seeking out new adventures. Coloradans at heart via NYC to the desert of Joshua Tree, a place that can be as unique as NYC in different ways. In love with the desert and the history of the homestead cabins peppering the Joshua Tree landscape, we gratefully acquired ours and are honored to share it with our guests. We are local and LOVE giving tips and suggestions...ask away!
