The Sunset Road House

Family-friendly vacation home with outdoor pool and spa tub
The Sunset Road House is a two bed, two bath newly renovated 1952 homesteader cabin just 15 minutes from the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park in Joshua Tree, CA.

We have designed this home so that our guests can unplug and relax while enjoying all the modern amenities. Enjoy the spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the expansive deck and relax in the hot tub at night surrounded by open desert views, wildlife, and a starry, starry sky.

We recently did a total renovation (down to the studs!) on this mid-century gem so it has every modern amenity for you to enjoy. It sits on 5 gorgeous acres which you can explore during your visit. You must drive a couple of unpaved roads to access the house but no visitor has had a issue so far, Prius included! Local residents include rabbits, roadrunners, turtles, coyotes and all manner of desert creatures. Our favorite thing about the property is that it truly feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. Check in and tune out :)

The large, open concept living space has a modern kitchen, dining space and living room area. There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master has a king bed (with en suite bathroom) and the second bedroom has two twin beds which can be converted into a king, at your request. The second bedroom also has a full bathroom. The home works well for a group of friends, two couples, or small families. If you need accommodation for more guests we also have a recently renovated vintage travel trailer available for rent near by. Feel free to inquire about our other properties! We welcome pets with a $50 pet fee per pet.

The Sunset Road House is about a 12 minute drive to downtown Joshua Tree (fun shops, restaurants & bars) and a 15 minute drive to the Joshua Tree National Park Visitors Center at the west entrance of the park. In addition to hiking, we are close to the renowned Integratron (a healing sound bath experience) or enjoy a tour of the Gubler Orchid Farm. If you are looking for a little action, head on over to Pioneertown (25 min drive) and visit the Old West movie set before dinner and drinks at the famous music venue, Pappy & Harriet's. You might even get lucky and see The Rolling Stones do a set!

At The Sunset Road House there is a fabulous swimming pool (seasonal) and both a bocce ball court and a horseshoe pit... or do absolutely nothing and lie on the chaise lounges, looking out at the expansive desert by day and/or soaking in the hot tub at night under a blanket of stars. Take in the desert air in the private outdoor shower whenever it strikes your fancy!

Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer private pools and fireplaces. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, cookware/dishes/utensils, and dishwashers.

Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers. Additionally, rooms include safes and coffee/tea makers.

An outdoor pool and a spa tub are on site.

Little casita with never ending skies.
Just had the most amazing time in Joshua tree with my husband but this place made everything so much better and relaxing. It was so nice to come to this heavenly spot after a few hikes. The sunsets were amazing but the sunrise was even better! We found so many constellations at night, the sky was our playground. The jacuzzi was definitely a plus. If you want to get away from everything and everyone this is the spot. Thank you Kathryn for your kindness and sharing your amazing place with us. Our anniversary was perfect

5/5 Excellent

What a perfect place
We could have asked for a better place to stay! Definitely will return! Quiet & comfortable! Watched the sunrise on Sunday morning! Not a moment of disappointment!

5/5 Excellent

A Little Slice of Desert Heaven
When looking for a place to stay for a few days away from the city, the Sunset Roadhouse looked like it checked all the boxes we were looking for. Plenty of open land, pet friendly, recently remodeled, beautifully designed, fireplace, jacuzzi, vinyl, and the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets you can ask for. Well, it exceeded all of our expectations! Kathryn was just as responsive and attentive as you’d want a host to be without being overbearing. She answered every question I had immediately & had plenty of helpful suggestions. The chilled champagne & make your own s’mores kit were excellent touches. Looking forward to staying here again at some point very soon.

An amazing place for getting away and relaxing ! So peaceful and comfortable.

Peace and quiet in the desert
Delightful home, all the comforts for a great stay, fresh air, peace and QUIET, great hot tub for star gazing, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, nicely stocked kitchen, comfy beds and great internet for entertainment and remote work. Roadrunners visited every day, but no coyotes! Would definitely book again. Follow owners advise about keeping dogs on leash and to the roads, lots of wildlife and the desert can be hard on their paws, but our dog had great fun and appreciated her own welcome basket.
