Wonder Valley Sky is a beautiful modern retreat near the North entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. Light-filled, airy and secluded, this newly renovated home features breathtaking 360-degree views of Wonder Valley and the Sheephole Mountains, a luxury soaking tub and comfortable patio furniture to unwind, relax and enjoy the magic of the desert. This is your perfect desert getaway.
***The property has over 45 5-Star reviews on AirB&B***
This gorgeous modern desert home features an open one-room floor plan and full-wall windows to the East and West for a light and airy loft-living feel.
Guests will enjoy the brand-new queen bed & luxurious memory foam mattress, and the large sectional couch pulls together into another queen size bed. A plush air mattress is also available for groups exceeding four guests.
The detached luxury bathhouse is an oasis of calm with a stunning view of the mountains from the luxurious resort-style soaking tub. Marvel at the sunset from the tub as the desert melts away all the stress and cares of your everyday life.
Enjoy a wondrous hike in Joshua Tree National Park, come back and cool off with a memorable ‘en plein air’ outdoor shower, then curl up with a good book and a view of the mountains or take a nap on the comfortable patio furniture.
Play your favorite music through the provided high-end UE Bluetooth speaker as you unwind on the patio, and later cook a gourmet meal in the beautiful kitchen or make a masterpiece on the brand-new chef’s grill and get ready for a stunning sunset. Switch on the resort-style fire table and revel in the beauty of the star-filled skies with an astounding view of the Milky Way that gives this graceful desert retreat its name. You’ll see why this home is so special and why the area was recently designated one of the best places in the world to view the night sky.
If you prefer a wood campfire, there is a well-stocked fire circle a few steps from the house with stunning views of the Sheephole Wilderness and Cockscomb Mountains, with comfortable camp chairs and well-seasoned local pine and eucalyptus wood for a memorable end to the perfect day. Roast s’mores or enjoy a cocktail and take in all the gifts this magical desert valley has to offer. We look forward to your stay.
You will have the whole place to yourself, which includes the house, bathhouse, patio areas, and all the outdoor space your heart desires. There is also a beautiful 1969 motorhome on the property which is not currently in use, but will be available as part of the home rental in the coming months. The home site is 5 acres, but we are surrounded by beautiful desert land on all sides, so it feels more like 5000 acres, especially to the East, where you could walk for miles, all the way to the mountains, without encountering another soul.
Interaction with guests
We try to provide everything our guests will need for a memorable stay, and then give them the space to enjoy it. We are available for questions via text if needed for information not covered in the manual, but will not bother our guests and encourage them to just relax and enjoy and immerse themselves in the peace and grandeur of Wonder Valley.
Other things to note
Our graceful retreat has all the amenities you would expect, including a beautiful kitchen with everything you need to prepare a delicious meal (except the food). Plush towels and linens, bath, hand and dish soap and conditioning shampoo are all included, as well as books on the area, and a variety of board & family games, free WiFi, a dynamic Bluetooth speaker to listen to your favorite music or movie, and coffee and tea & creamer to start the mornings off right. The tap water is drinkable municipal water which is then filtered again by our whole-house filter, but if you prefer bottled drinkable water, we provide a few small bottles per stay and encourage you to bring more as needed.
The house is only 13 miles from the North Entrance of the majestic Joshua Tree National Park, one of the crown jewels of the National Park system, and by far its most popular desert park. We provide a park map and hiking guide to the park and encourage our guests to explore the park in all its glory.
The area is world-renowned for its night sky, and has been designated one of the best places in the world to view the stars. Due to the location of our home, our patios are the ideal place for skygazing.
This is also an ideal spot for scenic drives; all directions from our home yield countless stunning vistas
Also nearby is the intriguing Oasis of Mara, a natural oasis and spring, and the original home of the Native Americans that settled in the area.
Also, make time to see the Amboy Crater, a fascinating volcanic cone crater left by a volcanic eruption only 6000 years ago which borders Route 66 and is only a short half-hour drive from the house.
There are many other attractions in the area as well, including a myriad of historic desert sites and hiking trails, Twentynine Palms and its murals, the hip town of Joshua Tree, which is home to many artists and cool shops and restaurants. Also, Palm Springs and the hot springs of the low desert are just an hour and twenty minutes drive.
Relax, unwind and let the desert work its magic. We look forward to your visit.
