Unlike a lot of the properties in Joshua Tree, the streets are paved all the way to the entrance. 'Desert Sky Compound' - an Artist's Haven and Awesome Couples Refuge. Spacious 1200 square foot home - high ceilings, an open floor plan, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, 2 rear patio areas plus a front porch for enjoying the view or evening breeze. This unique custom built home is located on 2.3 acres with local wildlife, Joshua Trees, landscaped walkways and dozens of unique types of cactus blooming throughout the year. The rental rate includes the cleaning fee & all amenities listed. (One night rentals are available at higher rate.)
Full kitchen with 4 burner stove, oven, full size refrigerator, toaster, dishes, bowls, pots, pans and all utensils. (Olive oil, coffee maker including coffee & filters, teas, sugar, salt & pepper provided.)
100% Solar power (yet also on the “grid” for constant power), central heating, air conditioning, wood burning stove, ceiling fans. WiFi and movie DVD's and music CD's with monitor for your viewing or listening pleasure. Games, cards, backgammon. (No cable television, no phone.)
From our property atop a hill you get beautiful night village views as well as of the Southeastern Mojave Desert mountains. Two sides of the property are walled so you really feel like you are in your own private sanctuary with rabbits, quails and road runners who frequent the grounds – as well as doves, chipmunks, ground squirrels, wren, lizards, humming birds. Once the sun goes down, the property is visited by bats, occasional bobcats and owls. You will be amazed at the clear and vibrant starry skies – the milky way is visible here along with all the other constellations.
Call it a retreat, an awesome couples refuge, sanctuary, Artist's haven, oasis, getaway or hideaway – whatever word you choose will describe this beautiful vacation rental. (A second home, owner occupied, adjoins the vacation home by a soundproofed cement wall, and a 6 foot block and fence privacy wall separates the vacation home backyard, all of the guests have positively commented on the great privacy, especially with 2.3 acres.)
