Welcome to The Desert Lodge in Joshua Tree.
This house is about a mile to downtown Joshua Tree with many shops and restaurants along with the National Park, which is just a 5 minute drive from the house.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one is a half bath) in the house, and works well for a group of friends, three (or four but recommended for 3) couples, or small families. Its spacious enough for a group but also cozy enough for just a couple.
Check in is after 3pm, check out is 11am. We have a zero tolerance policy on noise. Absolutely no house parties or loud noise outside. Our House is in a residential neighborhood and we are committed to keeping it a quiet peaceful area. Violations of the terms of this agreement will result in fines from $500.00 up to three (3) times the rental amount, as well as forfeiture of security deposits, and immediate termination of occupancy with no refunds.
Please do not proceed with booking if you, or anyone in your group, are not comfortable with these policies.
Hello! I'm Laura and my husband and I are excited to share our spaces with others when we are not here. We split our time between LA and JT. "The Desert Lodge" is our personal home that we rent when we are away, and "Coyote Cove" is a rental we also manage.
We are both active and love to hike, bike, surf, camp, check out live music, cook, travel near and far. We take at least one trip abroad each year; Some of our favorites are Costa Rica, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Japan to name a few. Of all the places we've been, however, Joshua Tree is still one of our favorites.
I first visited Joshua Tree on a spontaneous camping trip 12+ year ago. Falling asleep under a wide open blanket of stars and waking up in the boulders was an unforgettable experience. I fell in love with the area so much so that I knew I would make it a home one day. A decade later I did just that and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share it with others, we've hosted and met some amazing guests from around the world.
My booking email will be full of information and recommendations in the area, there are many wonderful restaurants, galleries, events etc and I am happy to point you in the right direction.
I look forward to hosting you!
