Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Joshua Tree, California
Wikiup - a temporary dwelling of nomadic Native North Americans. It is a framework of arched poles covered by brush, bark, rushes, or mats. The natives sometimes call other dwellings of tribes in this region wikiups even when made of more permanent materials. A luxury desert experience in a natural Mojave Desert setting. We invite nomadic North Americans and others to stay in this home.

Nestled in the base of a rocky hillside and the Pinto Mountains sits this 1,600 square house. 360 degree desert mountain and valley views make this home a great place to enjoy the desert in comfort and style. The 2.5 acre property is fenced and gated with few houses nearby so it's remote but relatively close to town.

Stocked kitchen, Gas BBQ, outdoor fire pits, enclosed pool & spa area for entertaining.

It's hard to believe that it's been two years since we visited Joshua Tree and stayed at Wikiup. We had a long weekend in the fall and greatly enjoyed hanging out under the stars, cooking family meals and going hiking in the National Park nearby. Wikiup was clean, comfortable and well kitted out. A great getaway with family and friends...

I selfishly hesitated to write this review just to increase the chances Godwin Ranch would be available whenever I needed to take off and take a break from the old grind. But I gave in because the nice people at Joshua Desert Retreats do such a great job of furnishing their rentals with everything you need for a truly memorable...
