outstanding mountain views ....

Perched at the edge of a wilderness corridor connecting Joshua Tree National Park to adjacent desert areas, the nearby lands are home to many native plants and wild animals. In the spring and fall, wildflowers and migratory birds are abundant. Countless stars can be seen in the wide night sky view. Please enjoy viewing, but avoid disturbing the fragile plants and wildlife that live in this natural desert wonderland.

The house is a late twentieth-century California ranch home with a passive solar design, updated with an off-grid, solar-powered electrical system, modern appliances, and eco-friendly interior finishes. Your vacation in Joshua Tree is a perfect opportunity to unplug but we do offer WiFi amenities to stay connected if you must.  Featuring three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Sunny Rock Acres is an ideal sanctuary for romantic couples, families, and small groups.  

A common room spans a large eat-in kitchen with gas cooking stove and a separate living room with a convertible full-size sofa/futon. Modern heating, cooling, and ventilation conditions the interior space year-round. Outside, the front porch area has 270 degree views of rugged mountain lands. The rock-sheltered backyard features terraced patio areas, secluded wood-fired cowboy tub, with private access to miles of private trails and wild-lands.

six-hundred acres ...

Located in a rock-rimmed valley near the West entrance to Joshua Tree National Park just five miles from the center of Joshua Tree Village, the site includes five acres of gently-sloping, south-facing property with wide mountain views toward the National Park. The setting adjoins 605 acres of undeveloped lands in the Desert View Conservation Area (also known as Section 6), providing immediate access to hiking and mountain biking trails in this remarkable landscape.  Nearby access to Joshua Tree NP west entrance is found a favorable 1 mile distant with services, attractions, and events in the nearby towns.

Backdoor Boulders

“Arriving to Sunny Rock Acres was easy, leaving was much more difficult. The house sits far away from any neighbors and is very private.  From the main room you can't escape the view!  We were so taken by the near endless landscape and backdoor boulders we spent most of our time exploring around the property and only made it into the Park one day.  We highly recommend the home and are already planning or return! "

We had a great time ... 

“I'm happy to be one of the first to review Sunny Rock Acres.  The house is simple and spacious providing plenty of space for our family.  And even though the house was new, it had everything we needed including the most comfortable of beds and delicious coffee!  We had a great time and sure you will too. "

Fantastic location ! 

"We have stayed in Joshua Tree many times but always in smaller rentals or those north of the highway.  With a larger group we needed more space and couldn't be happier with the house and fantastic location.  We were were minutes away from the park entrance which was ideal as we had early trips due to a very hot summer trip.  The house was cool and the perfect spot to enjoy cold cocktails after some warm hiking.  Great house and want to return this winter"
