“Beautiful location, comfortable place to stay”

We really enjoyed our stay - and since the property was double booked we were lucky to stay in the even larger main house. The house is perfectly situated - we loved seeing the moon set in the early morning and the sun rise and light up the hills. It was fun to see the hummingbirds come to the feeder and the road runners come right up to the patio. The location is great - very easy to get to Palm Springs and to Joshua Tree National Park.

It was rather cold out in December but the owner made sure we had plenty of heaters and set wood in the stove so we could easily light a fire. I was traveling with my adult son and my only small criticism is that there is only the one king bed - no other roll out or couch for a second person who is not a spouse or partner. The bed is big and we did share it with no issue but not my preference.

It is a nice two story place with a wonderful view near Yoshua Tree and Palm Spings. It is at the edge of the valley. Easy access towards the highway.

“Cozy space”

I didn't know much about Morongo Valley, but I wanted to take a quick trip close to Los Angeles. This turned out to be just right. MV itself is a small town, but has a great nature preserve in it. Also, day trips to Pioneertown (and the wilderness area near it) and Joshua Tree were really easy to take.

The owner has made the space really nice. He was conscientious and thoughtful in communication too.

One quick note, though--there's only a/c on the top level. I figure this is usually fine, but it was exceptionally hot when I got there (112 F) and it took 2 days for the bottom bedroom to cool down. I slept upstairs no problem, but if I hadn't been solo it might have been more difficult.

Not worth reducing the rating over that. The place is great. if you don't mind being a little out of the way, it's a lovely place to stay.

“Quiet, relaxing hillside retreat.”
Reviewed April 18, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

What a beautiful rental. Highly recommended! Great place to stay to get away from it all. Gorgeous mountain/desert views and lots of wildlife to enjoy and photograph-took over 300 pictures while staying here.
Everything provided, nicely furnished and very clean. So glad I found this place-will definitely be coming back soon!
