The Neighborhood

Come on out to explore planet "Joshua Tree ... Like Earth, Only Better. It's a symbol of the High Desert, a cultural icon, a state of mind. You'll know when you arrive here, as the clutter of civilization gives way to our beautiful vistas -- yucca, cactus, desert wildflowers, fantastic boulder formations, and of course, our famous Joshua trees. Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features add to the attraction of Joshua Tree National Park." - from the JTNP.

Getting Around

Taxi Service is available.

Other Things to Note

Nick & Cheryl the hosts, live in a separate owner-occupied home on the property. Please read the RockHouse Rules. Treat the house like your own. Clean up after yourself. Put all trash in the bins under the carport. Wash all dishes or run dishwasher before you go. No need to make beds :-) Please let us know if you are bringing your pet and how many (max 2), before you arrive.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
