  • Description


    On the edge of Joshua Tree National Park, this property is a sanctuary for many people in the community as well as local wildlife. With a large cactus garden, mountain of boulders, various buildings with unique architecture, and some great views! There are lots of fun places to explore and projects to get involved in. I am a retired teacher and enjoy meeting new people and travelers. I have lived here for 30 years and my husband and I developed this special land, its animal and plant life.

    We offer a guest house , photos of the guest house are included.with air conditioning, high ceilings, skylight and spectacular view of the rocks. Shared bathroom and kitchen. Non smoking.
