A relaxing Desert Escape with 4 Bdrm, 2 bath; fully equipped Kitchen and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Enjoy a quick weekend away or linger a bit longer for a holiday with your entire family. Rest, relax and enjoy this year-round retreat with its natural desert landscaping and wildlife; amazing wild sunsets and the darkest night skies. Just a few minutes drive from the less-used north/east entry to Joshua Tree National Park.

The space
Unlimited panoramic views await you in our 4 bedroom, 2 bath Desert Escape. Located on 2 acres of natural desert beauty, this retreat is just a short drive from the less-used north/east entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and visitor center. Enjoy the beauty of an early morning sunrise while sipping coffee from the comfort of our fully furnished, shade-covered patio. Watch as the desert wildlife, including quail, lizards, roadrunners and little ground squirrels stir early before the weather gets too hot. In the evenings, marvel at the intense bold colors of the wild sunsets; followed by the dark, clear night sky with the Milky Way and numerous constellations stretching from horizon to horizon. (An app can help with the names and locations). Enjoy your evening with S’mores around the BBQ/fire pit in the front yard. How many shooting stars can you find?
Whether enjoying a quick weekend get-away or staying a bit longer (you can “work-from-home” here with our Wi-Fi), you will find everything that you might need.
The Kitchen is furnished with many of your cooking needs including service for eight. There is bar seating for 6 plus table seating for 6 to 8. The outdoor patio has a large cast-aluminum table with seating for six in comfortable cushioned chairs plus additional lounge chairs. The Living Room has over-stuffed seating for all and a large expandable coffee table where you can spend hours playing some of the old board games from your childhood. There is a flat screen TV with Direct TV service and a DVD player for your enjoyment. Open the window blinds for incredible views of the desert expanse in every direction.
The Master and third Bedroom each has a Queen sized bed; the middle bedroom has a double bed and the first bedroom has a trundle sleigh bed with 2 youth size beds, but are plenty comfortable for an adult as well. All of the beds include fine linens and a down comforter for a luxurious night’s sleep.
Each of the 4 bedrooms includes a closet and dresser with plenty of storage for all of your belongings. The middle bedroom also has a desk and chair, with a printer if you really do need to work.
The master bath has a tiled shower; the second bath has a tub/shower. Each has a hand-held spray shower head and a storage chest with drawers for all of your toiletries. All bath and kitchen linens have also been provided.
Our home is equipped with air-conditioning for the hottest summer months, heating for the cold winter nights and a swamp cooler for the spring and autumn days when less cooling is needed and you can open-up to enjoy the fresh desert air. A washer and dryer have been provided for your use, located in the 2 car garage; park inside to help keep your car cooler during the warmer summer days. There is also plenty of on-site parking space for a large RV.
Please enjoy our home as you would your own, while at the same time respecting the peace and quiet of the desert and that of the neighbors.

I was born and raised in 29 Palms. This house that we have listed is the home that my parents built when I was 7 years old and where I lived along with my younger brother and sister until I was 18. I left to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where I majored in Architecture. I have been an Architect since 1983 as is my Husband, Dennis. My Mom spent her active years caring and tending for this home and her yard. After she was no longer able to take care of the house herself, we wanted to be able to keep the home in our family. Dennis and I love coming out to the desert as often as we can, but want also to share it with friends and others who love the desert as much as we do. We love to travel and have been on several cruises from Alaska to Greece & Turkey, to Russia and Scandinavia to the Panama Canal. But as exciting as all of those places are, we very much look forward to the very relaxing times that we are able to spend in the desert. Though we are new to Hosting or even being a guest in a home, we are very much looking forward to sharing our home with all of you.
