Joshua Tree, California
This Spanish-style home near Joshua Tree National Park is a perfect couple's getaway.

French doors and Spanish tiled floors welcome you to its grand open floor plan. Tasteful Spanish décor, outdoor shower, gorgeous beamed ceilings and a cozy sunken living room with large roaring fireplace, encourages couples to come together and move at a different pace.

The secluded private hot tub offers amazing views of spectacular desert scenery, and is a perfect place to spend an evening gazing at a vast Universe of stars.

Featured in the Escapes Section of the New York Times and Los Angeles Times Style Section, the Adobe is the perfect place to unwind and totally relax. This 5-acre property is coupled with our Godwin Ranch home, and can be a perfect additional guesthouse for those visiting the Joshua Tree area.

We stayed at Adobe over Easter 2016. The manager did switch a reservation for us and provided extra bedding and Easter candy for the kids.
