Joshua Tree National Park is minutes away from this early homestead adobe style house. Although built in 1933, this classic has been renovated to modern standards and retains its original look and spirit. Located near all local amenities, its PRIVACY and SECLUSION is ensured by plantings and fencing. The Mojave National Preserve, Amboy Crater, Wonder Valley and the historic Route 66 are quick and easy day trips. The 29 Palms Marine Corps Base is a short drive.

The space
Cactus Adobe has a unique charm about it that you notice immediately as you pull into the driveway. Over the garage, you will see the custom designed "TILE" sign above the wooden doors, the original owner operated his business from there. As you enter the property through the metal side gate with tree branch handle, you're greeted by the homeowner's collection of desert art and an abundance of cacti.

Here we use the back door as our main door that brings you into the sun porch at the back of the house. Straight ahead is the 2nd bedroom that comfortably sleeps two on the two twin beds. Take a step up into the galley kitchen and admire the color tiled countertops amidst the vintage stove and refrigerator.

✔ Queen size bed in the Master bedroom
✔ Two Twin Beds in the second bedroom
✔ Full size sleeper sofa
✔ Well Equipped Kitchen
✔ Coffee Maker (Ground Coffee provided)

Just beyond the kitchen, you'll find the open living and dining room spread out over the original wood floors. You can lose yourself in one of the many books from the homeowner's collection. And tucked away in the corner you will find an internet-connected television should you need something to entertain you after a long day of exploring the desert. The charm continues as you turn left into the hallway that leads to the tiled bathroom and the master bedroom.

✔ Internet connected TV
✔ Large Book Collection
✔ Board Games


Looking to enjoy the outdoors while on vacation? Outside on the back patio, you'll find a propane BBQ for grilling, lounge chairs and an outdoor fireplace to cozy up to while enjoying the star-studded skies above. There's also a roomy outdoor shower behind the garage equipped with hot and cold water for guests to enjoy. And you don't have to go far to meet desert wildlife. There are a number of rabbits, quail and desert iguanas that call this place home.

✔ Covered patio
✔ Propane BBQ
✔ Outdoor Shower (Hot & Cold Water)
✔ Cactus Garden
✔ Wildlife Viewing
✔ Pets Welcome!

Guest access
Our home is surrounded by a cactus garden which includes a variety of native desert plants and cacti, which the local wildlife such as rabbits and quail call home. There is metal art by well known local desert artists as well as found objects and artifacts which guests can enjoy.

Other things to note
RENTAL AGREEMENT: As per the STR ordinance for the City of Twentynine Palms, all guests are required to sign a Rental Agreement.

We recommend that guests come prepared for the weather here in the desert. In the winter, the days are pleasant but the nights can get slightly chilly.

Spring and fall are some of our favorite times of the year as the weather is just right. Not too hot, not too cold. Best to dress in layers.

As for the summers, the daytime highs average in the upper 90s to the low 100s. We recommend you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and plan any outdoor activities such as hiking or rock climbing for the early mornings or late evenings.

Location

Twentynine Palms, California, United States

Our home is in town and very convenient to dining, shopping and the natural wonders which surround the area. The house is surrounded by fencing and natural desert trees, bushes and cacti. There is a feeling of being away from it all in a PRIVATE and SECLUDED setting. Although the area may seem quite and subdued there are many things to do and see. The Smith Ranch Drive in Movie theater is a classic must do. There is a public swimming pool nearby at Luckie Park. The is a golf course in town and you are welcome to use the outstanding golf course on the Marine Corps base ( by appointment). The Turtle Rock Casino is a few minutes away and if you don't care for gambling you can enjoy the food and big screen sports events as well as live music there.
Look for Pioneer Days festival in Autumn and the famous WEED SHOW where entrants make beautiful art out of desert weeds. Visit our Theater located on Adobe road where you can see actors from around the world perform.
There is much to do and see in our neighborhood. Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have

I'm what you would call an "Accidental Host". My skills as a professional photographer lead me to meeting with a gentleman who was looking to sell some property here in the desert. I'm tech savvy as well and next thing you know I'm managing his properties for him here in the desert and in Europe. Word of mouth spread and now three years later, I have a portfolio of vacation rentals here in 29 Palms, Joshua Tree and France. I've been a resident here in the desert for 25 years and counting. Joshua Tree National Park is my "church" and my photography muse. I love sharing my passion for this arid landscape with visitors from all over the world. Whether it be sharing some of my favorite locations in the park or dining at one of our local restaurants. There's more here to do than meets the eye. I encourage you to connect with locals and experience as much of this unique landscape while you are here.
