Photos and Description of the Joshua Tree vacation cabin rental

Our guest reviews tell our story better than we can.

Hawks View House in Joshua Tree is located in a secluded canyon 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. Hiking is available right out the back door, featuring back porch shower, fire pit and amazing views in every direction. A short drive to JTNP.

We rebuilt this 1950s Homesteader Cabin from scratch. After jack-hammering and re-pouring the old cement floor, we wood framed inside the original cinder block walls to provide lots of electrical outlets and additional insulation. The cabin features two 10 ft. covered porches, metal roof and metal ceiling, new dish washer, gas stove, refrigerator and state of the art AC and heating. All new plumbing provides good water pressure for both showers (one outside), whirlpool tub and kitchen. Enjoy our starry night skies around the propane fire-pit. Grill up some veggies and steak on the BBQ porch. We have an information center with complementary maps highlighting points of interest and recommended local restaurants, shops, coffee houses, art galleries, theaters, health food stores and our local yoga studio. Our local friends tell us they like to visit because of the unique location at the end of the road near the top of our hill. DO NOT use GPS to arrive at our location. GPS may lead you onto an impassable trail. You must approach our location from the east (Sunburst Road in Joshua Tree). Please allow us to text or email directions along with the front door lock combination for your stay.

We are located 15 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, home of hiking, rock climbing and photography. We are 30 minutes away from Big Morongo Basin Preserve, one of the premier bird watching locations on the West Coast Migration Fly-Way due to its year-round water source in the midst of the desert. Paul is a professional nature/landscape photographer (those are some of his photos on the walls of the cabin). Paul is happy to share photography tips and favorite photo locations. Joshua Tree is home to a thriving art community. We have 2 music festivals and 2 Art Tours/festivals per year, fine art galleries, 3 live theater venues, health food stores, a yoga studio, unique night-life and more. Or you can just relax in the back yard, tan during the day and star gaze at night.
