Holiday Rental House /
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Nestled in the base of a rocky hillside and the Pinto Mountains sits this 1,600 square house. 360 degree desert mountain and valley views make this home a great place to enjoy the desert in comfort and style. The 2.5 acre property is fenced and gated with few houses nearby so it's remote but relatively close to town.

But I gave in because the nice people at Joshua Desert Retreats do such a great job of furnishing their rentals with everything you need for a truly memorable... more

I had an amazing experience with friends at this property! It was a nice, relaxing weekend getaway.
