There’s nothing quite like a desert escape—stretching, rust-colored vistas dotted by alien-looking plant life, rugged mountains that seem to go for miles, and color-popping sunsets that have to be seen to be believed. There’s no better place this vision comes to life than in Joshua Tree, California, gateway to the world-famous Joshua Tree National Park. Here you can spend your days traversing the trails of the park, discovering hidden gems at secret turns, and take the evening to stargaze from the comfort of your back porch hot tub. When you’re not exploring the natural wonders the area has to offer, you’ll find plenty to experience in town, from delicious local cafes to southwestern antique shops. For those dreaming of a Joshua Tree vacation rental, we have the perfect property for you: JT Desert Escape!

Bright Spaces with a Southwestern Flair
Step into the front door, and you’ll be in a spacious and well-appointed living area with exposed wooden beams on the ceiling that give the space a hacienda-style vibe. The space is open concept, and also includes the kitchen and living area further in. Yellow painted walls create a peaceful atmosphere primed for relaxation, and a large living room rug provides the space with a homey feel. A plush couch faces a large flat screen TV, where you can sit and unwind after a day out in the desert. Throughout the room you’ll find tastefully done décor, and completing the space is a charming two-seater table near the front window—a great spot to take your morning coffee, or to sit with your favorite reading material.
Relax with All the High-Quality Amenities You Need
Continue onward and you’ll come across the fully equipped kitchen and the dining area. The kitchen simultaneously gives an upscale yet homey feel, with bright cabinetry, sleek countertops, and high-quality appliances. Colorful accents throughout the area make it a welcoming space, along with decorative plants above the cabinets. With such a well-equipped kitchen, you can easily whip up a nutritious breakfast at a moment’s notice or spend the afternoon planning a gourmet homemade meal with ingredients from a local market. On the other side of the countertop, there’s four high-top chairs, giving you an extra spot to indulge in quick snacks or keep the cook company. The dining table can seat four, and is just off the kitchen next to the French doors that lead out to the backyard.
Enjoy the Best of Desert Living
Enter the backyard to find yourself on a charming deck, with a covered seating area with high-quality outdoor furniture on one side, and the cowboy tub style pool on the other side, also conveniently covered. Relax at the sitting area with amazing desert views or have a splash in the pool after a morning hike. It’s a small dipping pool that is filled with water then drained between each guest and can be a great way to cool off from the desert heat. Just off the deck you’ll find the BBQ grill—grill up a homecooked meal beneath a fiery sunset, and dine al fresco on the deck. At night, little white lights strung along the deck give the outdoor area a warm ambiance. If you’re visiting during the colder season or when the evenings are chilly, there is a hot tub just off the back porch, along with an outdoor firepit—both excellent spots for stargazing!
Comfy Bedrooms for a Restful Retreat
Inside, the two bedrooms are furnished with queen-sized beds, giving your group ample sleeping space. The first has a lovely window that overlooks the desert scenery, giving the room a bright and open feel. The second offers a small desk perfect for using your computer or writing, and also has French doors that lead out to the back deck. With complimentary Wi-Fi to stay connected on your devices, this home has it all for a Joshua Tree getaway!
The desert is a place like none other in the world, offering a pace that is slower and a touch of glamour that harkens back to the golden age of Hollywood. Our Golden Desert Ranch Joshua Tree property is an example you will definitely want to explore closer! Blending mid-century modern with a touch of the country and a taste of South America, its three bedrooms are peaceful, serene, and decorated in styles that are distinctly different, while the bathrooms offer an updated style that gives off the feeling of a spa. If your vacation plans include a visit to the desert of Joshua Tree, choosing our Golden Desert Ranch property will give you the opportunity to bask in the quiet luxuries that are innate to all our properties. 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.
Choose Hi-Desert Dwellings
For a unique vacation experience in the High Desert, look no further than our Constellation Compound, Joshua Tree rental property! Consisting of two dwellings situated on 10 acres of private land, it is the perfect choice of stay for those seeking solitude and an interesting Bohemian aesthetic while vacationing in the beautiful California desert.
The main house on the property features 2 bedrooms and 1.5 half baths that make for comfortable accommodations for up to 4 guests. You’ll find a slightly more contemporary style on the outside of the home, which features two separate outdoor patio spaces: a smaller one located on the front of the house and a larger space that spans the entire back of the home. The front exterior features friendly, bright colors that foreshadow the eclectic decor inside the home. Walk through the front door and you’ll find a small entryway that leads directly into a comfortable living area featuring a wood-burning stove and a flat-screen TV. The living area flows directly into a modern kitchen space, with stainless steel appliances and an eat-in counter area with seating for two. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area, which seats between 4-6 guests and faces an expansive window, offering an abundance of natural light and allowing you to take in the beautiful desert views. The master suite in the main home features a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The bathroom is modern and upgraded, with dual vanities and a large walk-in shower with stunning blue tile. The second bedroom boasts a queen-size bed and offers direct access to the outdoor patio space through a set of sliding glass doors. The entire home is decorated in a combination of styles that could best be described as modern, but funky, which appropriately reflects the artistic sentiments of the surrounding area.
Features of Our Joshua Tree Rental Cabin
If you are looking for a quirky sense of style, then the second home on this property is sure to delight! Referred to as the cabin, this dwelling is slightly smaller than the main house, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in unforgettable style! Enter the front door of the home into the living space which features a smaller seating area with a lot of personality, such as a vintage suitcase converted into a coffee table and a large wood-burning stove to be used as a fireplace for the chilly desert night! Off of the main living area and through an expansive doorway is one of the bedrooms. However, you can draw the curtains for additional privacy. Directly behind the living area is the dining and kitchen space. The dining area offers seating for four guests, and the kitchen features a quirky combination of bright blue cabinetry, red countertops, and green walls that add to the unique aesthetic of the home. Here you’ll find interesting details such as colorful, decorative masks on the wall, a small painted mural, and a green accent window that add to the eclectic vibe in the home. Both bedrooms offer direct access through sliding glass doors to the outdoor space. The shared bathroom in this home features a tiled walk-in shower and small vanity. Although the cabin may be the smaller space, it feels larger than it is due to the abundance of natural light in every room, and it offers great views of the desert from both bedrooms!
Sitting on 10 acres of land, Constellation Compound has an impressive and expansive outdoor space. You’ll likely spend lots of time laying out by the pool or soaking in the hot tub. The hot tub area offers seating for two, while the pool area offers two lounge chairs and an outdoor dining area with seating for four. There’s also a large umbrella that keeps you shaded during those sunny desert days! There’s also an additional shaded cabana with two more loungers that create a small outdoor living area. Enjoy 360-degree views of the desert no matter where you are on the property. Off of the deck on the main house is a seating area, with plenty of covered patio space with an outdoor dining table featuring seating for four guests and a small outdoor living area. There’s also a hammock, perfect for reading a book, napping, or watching the sunset. Best of all, this property is just 15 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park and the nearby artistic community. Enjoy shops, galleries, restaurants in town or head into the National Park for outdoor adventures such as rock climbing, hiking, and more!
