Five Star Rating

"We found this house to be perfect for our visit. Our family has rented one or two places a year through VRBO for the last 12-15 years, and this was one of our favorites. The owner was very friendly and very helpful with advice about the area. The kitchen was the best equipped we've found in a very long time. We've come to a number of VRBO houses or condos that advertised that they had a fully-stocked kitchen, but these owners must be people who don't prepare anything but breakfast cereal in their kitchens. This kitchen was great! A choice of sharp knives and cutting boards to choose from as well as lots of choices for pots and pans. Everything we wanted in a kitchen, including coffee beans and a coffee grinder for our stay.

The house had a nice, open adjacent dining room and living room area with comfortable, inviting furnishings. The big back yard area also very nice, and the owner had provided several different games. After long days of hiking in the Park, we enjoyed relaxing while playing pool on the covered patio area."

Everything we needed!

"Susan was wonderful to work with and very understanding of military families as we wait for housing on base. Highly recommended!! "


Conveniences inside and out!

"Joshua Tree Retreats is convenient inside and out.  The home is stocked with more than any other rental we've stayed.  A full kitchen with anything you'd need to prepare a nice meal. The patio is a great space to hang out after a day in the Park playing pool, poker or by the fire."

Exemplary host

Great touches ... that I haven't seen at other AirBnbs...

"I honestly don’t know where to begin to rave about Susan’s place. My husband, parents, and brother and his fiancée rented this house for a family New Years getaway and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Aside from being very conveniently located near the National Park, grocery store, and cute cafes in Joshua Tree, it was really the house itself that made this so stay so great. It had everything that made it fun to spend a lot of family time together at the house: bocce ball (with an enormous sandy yard perfect for the game), pool table, horse shoes, high quality bbq and very comfy patio area for hanging out. The living room was also very comfortable for spending time in with a nice couch, lazy chair, and dining chairs that could pulled around the coffee table for games and a great heating stove to make the living room toasty warm. There were also great touches in the kitchen that I haven’t seen at other AirBnbs, like coffee beans and a grinder, creamer, mixing bowls, lots of cooking pans and baking sheets (which made bbqing and cooking in a breeze), and nice knife set. Last but not least, the beds were super comfy! Thanks so much Susan for the stay and for answering my messages back in a matter of minutes! We’ll be back again in the future!”


We absolutely loved our stay!

The house was beautiful, clean, comfortable with so many amazing things to do right at the house!  We barely left!  Our three kids had an amazing time.  Would for sure come back!

Hits the mark and more

"While we have friends that still enjoy camping, we are in dire need of conveniences. Internet, a hot shower and a place to cook a meal makes Mamma happy. This house hits the mark and more with super cute decor, comfortable beds and has everything we needed for our family vacation.  We joined in some campfires in Indian Cove but was able to put the kids down at a reasonable hour.  It's been declared, you won't see me in a tent in Joshua Tree again!"
