This is a unique and fun bed and breakfast, tasteful and almost whimsical in it's decor, fascinating in it's construction and history. It's featured in a book (that was available in the large common room) on construction for extreme environments. The two proprietors are friendly and knowledgeable of the park and the surrounding community, and are local activists working to... More

The cynic in me wondered about all perfect reviews but in this case they are fully justified. Steve and Scott have just the right touch as hosts and the location and the facilities are perfect. When your partner is reduced to tears (for the right reasons) on entering the room you have probably booked the right place! Relaxing under the... More

This place so deserves its 100+ only excellent reviews. It's different from any other, the rooms are decorated in a stylish, country feeling which makes them wonderful. The couple running it make you feel welcome, they prepare a researched and sophisticated breakfast like no other place. The whole place feels very zen, peaceful, where nobody can bother you.

Stop 5 on our USA road trip. We were concerned about this stop, as we are complete 'townies' and normally choose anonymous, luxury hotels where we can keep ourselves to ourselves- however the reviews were so compelling we decided we couldn't miss the opportunity while in the area. What a good decision! The photos do not do this place justice-... More

Sacred Sands is a unique and amazing place to stay. From the time you walk in you feel that you are transported to a calm and peaceful place to relax and unwind. The rooms both have jacuzzis which after a day exploring the nearby Joshua Tree National Park are a perfect way to relax. The proprietors Steve and Scott are... More

We went on our honeymoon, this place is fabulous. Can't recommend it enough, if you have a chance go. Breakfast was an amazing feast, the buildings are so interesting. The hot tub under the stars, the uninstructed views and the welcome. All in all just great

Words can't describe how beautiful, serene, and thoughtful a retreat Sacred Sands is. I echo all of the positive comments by other previous reviewers! But what truly makes this place so inspirational are the proprietors - Scott and Steve. They do not simply check you in and serve breakfast, they take time to get to know their guests and share...

Everything is thought of. It is simply beautiful. A lot of attention and care is given to ensure you have a relaxing stay. Great little patio with hot tub (view on the mountains), bed, chairs and outdoor shower. Delicious and healthy breakfast. The owners, Scott and Steve are great hosts, very knowledgeable about the region and very helpful in selecting... More

Scott and Steve have created a perfect place to unwind, 1 mile from the west entrance to Joshua Tree. They have left no detail unattended. From the hay bale construction, the color choices (I call it "desert chic"), the beautiful furnishings especially in the "great room" (their living room, but they share it with the guests 24/7), the freshly-raked Zen...

I don't even consider myself a "B&B type" person, but I wanted to stay as close to Joshua Tree as possible, and couldn't resist the other reviews here. I couldn't have been happier with the choice. Breakfasts were amazing, the architecture and setting were phenomenal, the room was out of this world, and Scott & Steve provided the perfect combination... More
