The space
Welcome to this 1950’s homestead with unending and amazing desert views.  The cabin is located at the top of a 5-acres parcel with the owner's house located below Desert Utopia; above the cabin to the south there are two houses (an Airbnb and a private residence).  
  
This 760 sq. ft cabin is perfect for 2 but can accommodate 4. The master bedroom has a queen-size memory foam mattress, large closet, and dresser for your clothes and belongings. If you need additional sleeping options, the comfy sofa can converts to a queen size sleeper also with a memory foam mattress. There is an iPad and iPhone charger in the bedroom. The house has 1.5 bathrooms. The master bathroom has a tall rain shower head and double vanity. And don't worry about bringing shampoo/conditioner/soap or hairdryer, we have them here for you and many other small amenities. The kitchen is fully equipped. You can even find a few extras like a blender, hand mixer, toaster oven, Nespresso machine, Mr. Coffee and French press. Bring favorite beverages, we'll supply a cooler, as well as, a small portable/shoulder strap cooler for your water for your day in the park. We supply a few bottles of water. You will find a Bluetooth speaker in the kitchen as well as a record player in the living room

This original homestead was built in the 50's. The walls are decorated with pages from magazines (used as insulation) found in the walls of the cabin. We wanted to preserve some of the 1950's nostalgia and thought the advertising would be a great time stamp. The wood on the dining area wall was found in the cabin during demolition.  This wood was sourced originally from a  McDonald Aircraft hangar that was located in Palm Springs in the 1950's. Desert Utopia is close to town with views of the boulders and the entire valley. Desert Utopia is 15 minutes away from the park entrance and 8 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. Take pictures of the quails, roadrunners, rabbits, lizards, coyotes, and bobcats. You will find plenty of outdoor seating including a low rocker and chair and a table for morning coffee or a glass of wine on the patio at sunset. There is also a bench by the parking area to enjoy the sunrise. We have provided a table for outdoor dining and gas BBQ grill. We have added a hammock and hot tub for your enjoyment. Please take a minute to read the safety instructions regarding the hot tub. We have beach towels, flip flops and beach towels for your convenience. UNFORTUNATELY AS OF NOW THERE IS A TOTAL FIRE BAN in Joshua Tree AND SO ABSOLUTELY NO FIRE OF ANY KIND ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY. The mountain and valley views from the living room make it a perfect place for reading, writing, or surfing the web.

Guest access
GUEST ACCESS
