Recent Joshua Tree vacation rental reviews

We loved the space, quiet, and all of the great features of the house. Enjoyed the fire pit and lots of time outdoors too. Everything is new and modern.
Adam B. | May 2023
It's conveniently located, dog friendly with a fenced in back yard. The neighborhood is peaceful. Near a hiking trail. We had a great time

This cabin is a little isolated, and is so relaxing. Each night we watched lightening on the hilltops in the distance while having dinner on the porch. Better than tv any day! The house was clean, furnishings newer, and very comfy. It did get hot one day and found the ac worked great. The Wi-Fi worked great too but we just loved unplugging for a few days.

Where Is Joshua Tree?

This desert community is just down the highway from Morongo Valley, and is also close to other desert cities such as Palm Springs. To the west is the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, and from here you can even drive northwest to Big Bear for some skiing or fishing, or drive down the coast to San Diego to relax on the beach. With easy access to the stunning desert, wildlife preserves, and much more here near our Joshua Tree rentals, you won't have to go far to find adventures!

Things to Do in Joshua Tree

In the town you will have plenty of eateries, shops, and nooks to explore, including the well-loved Pie for the People pizzeria and several wonderful cafes.

When you're ready, grab your hiking boots and some extra water, and head out into the national park. The main attraction in this part of the desert is the fantastic Joshua Tree National Park, which covers 800,000 acres of protected land around the high-elevation Mojave Desert and lower-elevation Colorado Desert.

In the park itself, you will see vast stretches of landscape with unique rock structures, hills covered with wildflowers, and all sorts of plant and animal life including the iconic, twisted Joshua trees themselves. You can leisurely walk along short nature trails and gaze at the diverse plants while watching for wildlife - if you're lucky you might even see a desert tortoise or a bighorn sheep! The many longer trails provide pathways through the breathtaking wilderness so you can take advantage of the Joshua Tree hiking and mountain-biking options. Visitors flock here for the fabulous Joshua Tree climbing opportunities, and rock-climbers of every experience level can book a guided trip up the rocky cliffs.

This area is also a fantastic place to go birding, and the nearby Big Morongo Canyon Preserve is known for its diverse avian population. Before heading back to your Joshua Tree lodging for the night, pick a spot to sit and watch the sunset, then stick around and stargaze while surrounded by the stunning beauty of nature.

If you want to experience the rugged and diverse beauty of the desert, come stay at one of our Joshua Tree vacation rentals and get ready for an exciting escape you won't soon forget!
