When that feeling of wanderlust overcomes you head for Joshua Tree and our cozy home located on an acre plus for privacy and solitude from which to view the stars at night from the jacuzzi and pool. We are dog and cat friendly with a fully fenced back yard for safety

The space
The house is cozy with one large bedroom featuring an organic cotton king size bed. There is additional sleeping for four other people in the sofa beds provided . Could accommodate small child as well. Fully equipped kitchen with inside and outside dining on the patio by the pool.
There is a front porch area for early morning sunrise viewing and a back for leisure afternoon siestas or hanging around the pool/Jacuzzi.
The mornings are peaceful and quiet the evenings and nights are starlit . There is an abundance of wildlife including coyotes, bobcats, rabbits and multiple species of birds and other small critters to appreciate.
There is a "Catio" built off of the house providing an area for the resident rescue cats to be outside in the sunshine while safe from the local predators. The will not reside with you in the house but have their own private residence next to the catio The back yard is fully fenced to provide security and safety for children and the family dog if desired.

Guest access
Pool and Jacuzzi. In an effort to keep per night cost down there is a $20.00 fee per use for the jacuzzi to cover cost of the propane.
Also be advised that it is important to closely follow the instructions for use of the spa to avoid excessive use of the propane resulting in additional fees.

Other things to note
IMPORTANT
Please access utility information (in the house manual ) re: usage of Jacuzzi/Pool

Currently due to the COVID 19 situation we are not meeting guest upon arrival for the most part.

We remain available by cell or text for any question or concerns

Due to structure of my home with the beam ceilings and no attic to provide ducting space it is impossible to have ducted air conditioning. I do however now have a mini-split AC unit for the humid summer months of July and August The rest of the year the house is cooled by an evaporative cooler that works great when the air is dry with low humidity. Additionally the pool is perfect during these months so whenever you decide to make your dessert trip you will be comfortable whether cooled by AC or evaporative cooler or warmed by the mini split heater during the colder winter months .

I am a retired RN looking to meet new people and do some travel. I am hoping Airbnb will allow me to succeed in both of these endeavors by renting my house and travel while others are enjoying the wonder of Joshua Tree and my home. My favorite quote by JR Tolkein is "not all who wander are lost" . I plan to live this philosophy while traveling near and far. MY life's motto is "Do No Harm" While this is a difficult one to live up to, it is one that I welcome as a challenge to live on a daily basis wether near of far from home. I look forward to the many strangers I will meet in the future some of whom will perhaps become life long friends other whose fleeting acquaintance may provide me with memories of happy times shared.

Guest should note that there is a casita on the property where as of August 1, 2020 there will be a care taker present most of the time.
The casita is also where the cleaning crew , yard and pool guy have access to their equipment and all supplies to run and manage the home for our guest. There will be a vehicle (s) parked there and these folks will be around the property at various times to take care of the home , yard and resident cats ,tortoise etc This will provide our guest with additional security They will not be in your space and any need to do so will be arranged with guest prior except in an emergency There are trees and plants that need care especially during the hot summer months that may require care , watering etc during your stay. More importantly the pool will require the presence of the pool guy and that will mean he needs access to it Once again this will be arranged with guest privacy in mind as much as possible. In conclusion if what you are looking for is a place where there will be no one on the property ours may not be what you want.

There is a fifth wheel RV parked on the property that is used primarily for storage No one lives there.
