A mile up a dirt road and twenty thousand miles from the cares of the world, the True World Bungalow is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Originally part of the Mojave Rock Ranch Resort, the bungalow is the epitome of "Joshua Tree Style," in which rustic, artistic and luxury elements combine in unexpected and delightful ways.
As you enter the front gate, you will be greeted by the bottle wall fish pond and blooming water lilies in season. There are private patios in the front and back, perfect for sunrise coffee and sunset cocktails. The bungalow shares a five-acre property with the owner's home and backs up to over 150 acres of desert wilderness, so you can literally hike out the door and explore a vast landscape of boulders, abandoned claim shacks and wildlife habitat.
The bungalow has two sunny bedrooms (one king, one queen), nicely appointed with down comforters, original artwork, plenty of closet space and views for miles. The custom woodstove (a work of art in itself) will keep you toasty on cool evenings and the sweet retro kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a feast. Enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, DVDs on the flat screen TV, or music from the CD player (or your iPod). In warm weather you can relax under the trees in the cowboy spa, laze in the hammock or enjoy air-conditioned comfort indoors. And in every season you can count on star-filled nights, 50-mile views of Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. San Jacinto and up close and personal encounters with a myriad of desert wildlife.
Joshua Tree National Park Visitors Center is 10 minutes away in the artists' community of Joshua Tree, where you can also explore the galleries and shops and grab a bite to eat. Please feel free to ask your hosts for suggestions or to arrange special trips, from rock climbing, trail riding, guided hikes and night sky viewing venues to massage, yoga, and spa treatments and visits to local artists' studios.
