You could spend hours out here!
Dogs are also welcome if you’re planning on bringing the family pet with you. Let us know in advance if you’d like to bring your dog along, because there’s a $30 fee per dog, and you can only bring up to two animals with you.
With a grand total of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, you’ll be able to bring along a decent sized group without having to worry about running out of space. The master bedroom comes with a king size bed, two bedside tables with lamps, and plenty of floorspace for you to set up your luggage. The window has blinds if you’re planning on sleeping in, or you could leave them up and let the sun give you a peaceful early morning start. You’ll also have easy access to the backyard with the adjoining sliding glass door.
The master bathroom has both a walk-in shower and full-size bathtub, and a counter with two sinks and a large mirror, giving you everything you need to get your day started and have yourself looking presentable.
Both of the other bedrooms come with queen size mattresses and a bedside table with lamp. Much like the master, you’ll be able to close the blinds and keep the sun out until you’re ready for it.
The second bathroom is shared between the other two bedrooms and has a combination shower and bathtub with a curtain instead of a glass door. There’s also a single sink with a mirror.

This guide to its charms will perhaps give you a peek into your own future!
Ranch Life in the Desert
From the outside, this sweet property offers a ranch house style, with its wide front porch, white siding, classic black shutters, and white picket fence, but when the door opens and you step inside, a new world is revealed. Step into a space that is crisp, clean, and stylish, offering pure white walls and tile flooring that feels cool beneath bare feet. The living room features a large picture window that peeks out onto a desert mesquite tree standing tall and proud against the front of the home, and a modern sectional topped with a high-end camel colored leather. Sink into its plush comfort and surf the channels on the flat screen television hanging on the wall opposite the sofa or grab a book and sit in the chair by the aforementioned window and lose yourself in the story. The open concept of this floor plan adds to the airiness of the space and allows you to do your own thing without feeling separated from the others in your traveling group. Sit at the large wooden table and answer emails or work to put together a puzzle spread out at one end.
Head into the kitchen for a snack, a beverage, or to prepare a meal, and take a minute to enjoy the forest green cabinets that add an interesting spark of color and contrast nicely with the light stone countertops. Updated appliances and a compact breakfast bar add to the country charm of this cozy space. When you first drove up to the home, you might have wondered why the garage is seemingly not to be used, but a few quick steps away from the kitchen reveals a fun surprise: The garage has been converted into a game room, complete with pool table, ping pong table, comfortable couch, and a split unit air conditioner designed to easily fight the desert heat and keep you cool during your moments of competitiveness!
After a few games, you may find yourself ready for a good night’s sleep, and after you pick your favorite room, you will fall easily into a deep slumber and awaken the next morning refreshed and renewed. As we mentioned earlier, each room has its own style and ambience, so the choice may be a little more difficult than you first imagined. Perhaps it is the one with the painted headboard in the shape of an arch and a selection of retro art that includes a wood shelf encased in macrame, or maybe it is one of the other two rooms, both offering ratan headboards for the soft and comfortable beds they hold. This is definitely our best Joshua Tree property!
Of Course, There Is More!
The interior of Golden Desert Ranch is designed to be warm and welcoming, yet cool in the hottest months of the year, but comfort and style isn’t all it offers. Step out onto the covered patio and rejoice in the fun and comfort you find here as well! It offers a barbecue grill and a place to consume the meals you create on said grill, a couple of hammocks strategically placed to catch the desert breezes on those lazy mornings you just can’t see yourself doing much of anything, and a hot tub that gives warmth and romance to the exterior space. Spend a few hours playing from a selection of yard games hanging on the white picket fence or teach your child the joys of hitting a ball on a string; a tetherball “court” is yet another fun addition to the landscape! On hotter days, cooling off in the cowboy tucked into the corner of the whimsical corrugated tin fence that gives privacy and style to the yard is a unique experience you may not ever see again. Once the sun sets in a glorious display of color and fire, the stars light up the desert sky, and you will be cozy and warm as you gather round the fire pit tucked away in another corner of the yard.
