Begin your desert adventure at Casa Luisa, a stylish boutique vacation home (3 beds and 2 bath) in its abundant amenities combining the edge of a smart home and comfort feel of a luxury resort only 10 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park.

Sip coffee and wait for a beautiful sunrise, cool off in the refreshing pool, enjoy the desert breeze while napping in the hammock and let the vibrant star-filled sky mesmerize you while immersed in a hot tub after a long day's hike.

Casa Luisa awaits!

The space
Casa Luisa is located just 10 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park's North Entrance and is surrounded with the desert landscape to relax your mind and recharge your spirit. Expect to be greeted with the warming hospitality of this modernized 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom desert oasis. The combination of the rustic desert charm with contemporary living allows for a delightful experience. The sprawling backyard is the perfect complement to the desert landscape with an fire pit that reflects off of a re-purposed wooden backdrop with boulder rock seating; an open-air hot tub that seats 6 guests; a heated outdoor shower; privacy screens; a large, above-ground pool with a custom-made wood deck that can be heated upon request; and a private Cabana featuring a lotus lighting fixture, Capiz shell lanterns and a bamboo seating area. The upper patio area promises relaxation and comfort as you take-in sunrises and sunsets. A BBQ grill and ping-pong table are available.

The stylish living room features a tortoise-wood coffee table and eclectic mirrors that accent a vintage couch and chairs where Alexa awaits with your favorite music playlist or countless viewing options can be accessed on the SmartTV against a mountain view backdrop. Each of the three bedrooms and two baths off their own unique blends of modernized, traditional comfort and the entire home features Wi-Fi high speed internet and USB outlets.

Guest access
Access to the entire house and yard including use of pool, hot tub and firepit. Please bring your own firewood.
No garage access except when laundry room is requested with advance notice and nominal fee.
Two cars can be parked on the driveway and additional cars can be parked on the street.
Please do not access the yard behind the pool as we have pool pump and equipment only for staff maintenance.

Other things to note
Casa Luisa comfortably sleeps six guests on the 3 bedrooms. However, if there are more than six guests, we can provide rollaway beds or a blow-up queen mattress that can be placed in the living room. Guests can also bring a tent that can be placed in the backyard next to the fire pit. An additional $40 fee will be charged per guest after four. The number of guests is final the day prior to checking in.

We request guests' first names and ages to be listed on the reservation via the app for security reasons. Any additional guests can be added prior to the check-in date. No more than 8 guests will be allowed to stay in the house unless discussed with the property manager or host. If there are guests not registered via the app will address the issue right away and may potentially cancel the reservation.

Our check-in time is 3 pm and check-out time is at 10 am. Early check-in or late check-out is possible with a $20 per hour extra charge. The earliest check-in can be 1 pm and the latest check-out can be 12 noon or depending on staff availability. Our house cleaner will be onsite at 10:15 am and we expect that our guests have already checked out. Any guests staying after 10: 30 am will mean an extra hour to be added.

Small dogs certified less than 35 lbs are allowed with a maximum of 2 pets per reservation and an additional charge of $50/pet. We expect that our guests will pick up for any fecal materials left behind inside and outside the yard. Please do not let the pets stay in furniture (couches, chairs, and beds) to avoid any allergic reactions for any future guests.
The pool can be heated upon advance request or during reservation that can be added to the booking fees at $100 per night and a start up heating fee of $50.
For event/party or film location requests, this will be determined on a case by case basis.

Location

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Casa Luisa is in the heart of Joshua Tree, a ten-minute drive from the Tourism office on Park Blvd. (which is the ‘downtown’ area) and a ten-minute drive to the North entrance of Joshua Tree National Park.
There are a number of interesting places to see and activities to experience in Joshua Tree.

The Joshua Tree National Park
Guests can experience a ‘full tour’ of the park (800,000 acres at a glimpse) by driving between West and North entrances to see the famous Joshua trees and boulder fields. There are several key stops for taking photos, doing quick hikes or spending half a day in one spot. If one drives without stopping from the North Park entrance to the West Park entrance in Twenty Nine Palms (next town), it will be approximately a 45-minute drive.

However, you will find stopping points with breathtaking views and hiking trails that you may find yourself trapped in time.

Barker Dam is one of those stopping points and was built around 1900 to hold water for cattle and mining use. The dam today forms a small rain-fed reservoir used by park wildlife.
Hidden Valley is a 1-mile loop trail with massive boulders through the legendary cattle rustler's hideout.
Keys View with an elevation of 5,000 feet with a stunning expanse of the valley, mountain, and desert.
Indian Cove is a popular campground with a half a mile trail that highlights the plant and animal life of a Mojave Desert wash.

Casa Luisa is 5 minutes away from the Tourist center which is the central area in town. It has some popular local treats such as Pie for the People which has the best Calzone, the Joshua Tree Coffee House (known for nitrogen-infused coffee) and The Saloon Restaurant, a very popular bar/restaurant in a cowboy setting.

All year round travelers to Joshua Tree will find events whether for weekend warriors to hardcore aficionados (camping, hiking, and rock climbing), the music enthusiasts (Coachella and Joshua Tree Music Festival), the amateur and professional photographers (Milky Way photography lessons), the yogis (Shakti Festival) and just nature lovers. You might be surprised to find a tortoise along the way and get enthralled by the beauty of the park with this picturesque spiky-leafed green grow nowhere else in the world that could live up to a thousand years, the jewel that is the Joshua Tree.

The following are all-year-round events:
Joshua Tree Music Festival - May 16-19, 2019

Milky Way photography lessons - April to Sep 2019

The Shakti Fest - Yoga and music festival May 9-13, 2019

The Timelapse Film Festival - Aug. 3, 2019

The 7th Annual Art Expo
Weekend - Sep. 14-15, 2019

The Morongo Basin Orchid Festival - Oct 2019

The Gem, Mineral and Craft Show Oct 2-6, 2019

The Joshua Tree Half Marathon - Nov 2, 2019

Thank you for taking a moment in getting to know a little about the owner whose home you will be enjoying soon! I am a 46 year old professional with a medical background working in clinical research field. I moved to the US 20 years ago to pursue my own unique version of the American Dream. As one part of this Dream, I found a home in Joshua Tree that I have come to know and loved over the last year. I put many months of planning and collaboration to make this a premiere lux oasis in the high desert with all its amenities. In here, I was able to create a comfortable space that can host travelers from around the world to enjoy the enthralling beauty of this desert, to celebrate life and diversity. This house is truly special and is called Casa Luisa in honor of my amazing mother, who embodies warm Filipino hospitality to all and “joie de vivre”. From both us, Casa Luisa awaits! Maraming salamat po at mabuhay!
