Overview

About the property

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

Green Acres Ranch is more than a cozy place to stay...it is a work of art surprising its happy guests with beauty and creativity.

The ranch has two separate cabins (rented individually or together - see our other VRBO listing #14571) and is on acres of clean and sparse Mojave Desert land. Several lounging areas, hammocks, and fire pits help you soak up the sun, the stars, a good book or a glass of wine (It's rumored that a bottle has greeted a guest or two).

For those who love wildlife, our mature trees and other plant life attract a host of twittering birds and scurrying critters: quail, doves, friendly bats, and roadrunners to name a few. Ravens often nest in the large Tamarisk trees at the front gate, raising new hatchlings each year.

We're located less than a mile away from the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park, and our convenient location near the 62 Highway provides easy access to all nearby locations without sacrificing a sense of peaceful seclusion. Daily excursions may include Joshua Tree National Park (West entrance less than ten minutes away), East Mojave Scenic National Area, Big Morongo Wildlife Preserve, Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley, Big Bear Mountain, Twentynine Palms, Pioneer Town, or Giant Rock.

About Albert

We are artists from the Los Angeles area.

Albert purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Albert chose Panorama Heights

Joshua Tree is the best getaway from the city, if you want big open skies and uncrowded spaces! Green Acres Ranch has a relaxed and unpretentious feeling that guests instantly respond to.

What makes this cabin unique

What our guests really enjoy about the property is that it provides great comfort, yet has the slight feel of 'roughing it'. We are private, and yet easily accessible to Highway 62.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi,

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this wonderful property with us, it is by far the best wholesome vacation we have had as a family, my 4 year old loved rooming around the property checking out the desert plants you have off her Desert Plants workbook, the Joshua tree park was fun and educational, we enjoyed the beautiful full moon lighting up the yard at night, you have done an excellent job making the place comfy and useful, we are already talking about going back in March to spend few days, we will definitely recommend the spot to friends and family.Thanks againAli & Kathleen

A thoughtfully perfect desert hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

Sandra and Albert have put together an incredibly well thought out private cottage. Every detail is lovely, and fits perfectly in the vibe of Joshua Tree. They are fantastic communicators, and available to answer any question by email. This is a great and extremely reasonable place to stay. If I could give them 6 stars, I would. They have also spent a lot of time putting useful information about the house, and the services in the area into a guide for their guests. My fiancé and I can't wait to go back.

Relaxing, unique, artsy, chill, comfy, great amenities, dog loved it too!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing, time. We stayed In the Roadrunner cabin. This place is very unique, creative, artsy, very special, one of a kind. It’s not that far from LA but seems a world away. The nightlife and restaurants in town are fun too. A great weekend getaway. The hiking in Joshua Tree was spectacular too. We will definitely be going back!

Triple Threat: Artsy, Cozy & Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

Love this gem in Joshua Tree. Our dog absolutely loved the backyard and we enjoyed watching her! Quiet and peaceful place to relax and unwind. We’re repeat visitors and of course we wouldn’t stay at any other place when coming to JT. The owners are kind & considerate and I appreciate the prompt attention to my leaving items behind and the immediate phone call/text. You’ve got our highest recommendation!

I've rented the Roadrunner cabin many times over the years, and of all the places I've stayed, it still remains my favorite little Joshua Tree getaway!
