*** COVID-19 Cleaning Protocols ***
As the only professional management company in the area, we have always maintained exceptional cleaning standards. Our cleaning fees are generally higher than the market average because we pay above the living wage standards and we insist on a professional level of cleaning between guests. This has always included disinfecting all “wet” surfaces (sinks, showers, toilets), replacing all linens and towels, and cleaning all dishes. We now require our cleaning staff to wear gloves in these areas for their protection. In addition, we block our properties for a full day between guests to allow the time for them to air out prior to our cleaners entering. We love the High Desert for a lot of reasons - including the open spaces, lack of crowds, and dry weather that we believe make it a safe place to visit.

The space
Rock Reach House sits at just over 4,000 feet above sea level on a 2.5-acre parcel of land. It’s set in the remarkable private community of Rock Reach within the Town of Yucca Valley in the Mojave Desert. The home has become one of the most sought-after properties in the High Desert vacation rental market.

The house was built in 2009 as the first prototype home using systems from Blue Sky Building Systems. It is framed with mostly light-gauge galvanized steel elements that were fabricated off site and rapidly bolted together on site. The shell of the house went up in five days and the house was complete in eight weeks. The only wood in the entire house is in the cabinets and the interior doors.

-BEDS & BATHS-
Rock Reach House can comfortably accommodate up to four guests in two bedrooms, making it ideal for couples or friends. Each bedroom has a king-size bed and a sliding glass door offering direct access to its own private patio.

In the bathroom, you’ll find modern fixtures and a spacious countertop, as well as bath products from The Body Deli, a local producer that utilizes organic, food-grade ingredients. From inside the shower, a door opens out to a private outdoor shower — a must-try desert experience.

-KITCHEN & DINING-
The contemporary wood-accented kitchen offers everything you need to cook a delicious meal inspired by your desert surroundings. Appliances include an electric stove, oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and the cabinets are stocked with dishes and cookware.

The kitchen faces a lovely 6-seat dining table, where you can enjoy sharing a meal and admiring the desert vistas.

-LIVING SPACE-
Rock Reach House’s cozy living room also offers panoramic views from large sliding doors that open to the patio. Kick back and relax on the couch, flip on the TV (Apple TV included), or maybe drift off to some dreams of your next hike.

-OUTDOOR SPACE-
Outside amenities include a wood-burning fireplace (firewood is provided), a Jacuzzi-brand hot tub, a repurposed galvanized stock tank is now a “cowboy” tub for cool dips in warm weather and a wood deck offers two twin lay-flat chaise loungers for comfortable stargazing.

-ESSENTIALS-
Covered parking is available for 2 vehicles, and there’s an electric vehicle charger in the carport.

Rock Reach House includes WiFi, heating, and air conditioning.

For another spectacular home using the Blue Sky system, see "Hawk and Mesa" in nearby Pioneertown.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the home or the area in general. We hope to welcome you soon!

Location

Yucca Valley, California, United States

The 320-acre private community of Rock Reach is technically in the Town of Yucca Valley, but it feels like the middle of Joshua Tree National Park – without the crowds. Most of the landscape is an untouched wonderland of weathered boulders, pinon pines, desert oak and juniper trees.

Rock Reach provides the perfect blend of pristine desert and easy access to amenities in town. The West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park is a 20-minute drive away, and the shops, restaurants, and things to do in Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree Village. A few of favorite spots in Joshua Tree Village include Space Cowboy Books, the World Famous Crochet Museum, and the Joshua Tree Saloon.

In addition to shopping and dining, you won’t want to miss these nearby highlights:
• Pioneertown (15-minute drive) - Put on your ten-gallon hat and stroll down Mane Street of this Wild West-inspired town, also known for Pappy & Harriet’s, a notable restaurant and venue.
• Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum (20-minute drive) - As far from a stuffy gallery as you can imagine, this outdoor sculpture garden contains a unique collection of folk-art.
• The Integratron (20-minute drive) - New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.
• Palm Springs (40-minute drive) - Artsy town known for vintage shopping, art galleries, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
• Mt. San Jacinto State Park (90-minute drive) - Expansive, hilly landscape with foot and horseback trails surrounding 10,834-foot Mount San Jacinto.

Of course, let’s not forget about the essentials. Everything you need is within about 10 minutes by car:
• Closest supermarket: Vons
• Closest liquor store: Star Market & Liquor
• Closest pharmacy: Rite Aid Pharmacy
• Closest bank: Chase Bank
• Closest gas station: Sinclair
