The Rosy Boa is a stylish little JT bungalow with colorful views of the Bartlett Mountains and the National Park. Backyard desert vibes are welcoming and relaxing, while inside, vintage pieces blend with modern comforts. There is a super mini-split A/C and heat system, a unique kitchenette with a full-size kitchen cooking set-up, a luxurious deep tub, soft towels and a comfy queen-sized bed. The deluxe fridge/ freezer is available for your exclusive use.
Located just 6 minutes from the restaurants and cute shops in downtown Joshua Tree, and 3.5 miles further to the West entrance of JTNP, this lovingly restored bungalow offers a vintage-paneled bathroom with a deep soak tub, on-demand hot water heater, high pressure shower head and clean water from Joshua Basin Water District. You may want to bring slippers or warm socks for the ceramic tile floor as the weather gets cooler.
No need to worry about soaps, shampoo and lotions. They're all here as well as extra luxurious towels to help you unwind from a long drive or plane trip.
There is a fully functional kitchenette with an induction cooktop and stainless cookware, herbs and spices, dinnerware, glassware and cutlery, champagne glasses, as well as a blender for smoothies and a dependable toaster oven.
A French press and coffee grinder for brewing a cup of organic, locally roasted Joshua Tree Coffee Co coffee (you can smell it in the air downtown when they're roasting!) and fragrant organic teas are complimentary. There are 3 outdoor areas for you to enjoy that surround the bungalow. The private entryway has space to park your car if you wish, or just sit in the shade under the eaves and take in the view when the temps are hot.
The rear yard has a shady lounging area under two beautiful mulberry trees and a festive fire pit. The third area is the enclosed porch with attached BBQ patio and bar space.
The guest bungalow is a separate home on your host's property and is completely private. Guests are able to park in the driveway and access the bungalow through a separate entryway. There is an enclosed porch that houses a full-sized fridge/freezer and plenty of space for storing luggage or equipment. There is a screen door that leads to a BBQ patio and courtyard.
It is a perfect "home base" for couples and solo adventurers who want to take advantage of all that the high desert has to offer while relaxing in a quiet location. Close to Joshua Tree National Park, thrift store and vintage shopping, restaurants, hiking, certified farmer's market in town on Saturdays (8 am-1 pm) and wonderful music and nightlife at Pappy and Harriet's in Pioneertown and the local Joshua Tree Saloon. Highly recommend both!

Other things to note

You will notice that people smile a lot in Joshua Tree.
- Have fun and enjoy the desert views and nature, but please
- No smoking inside the bungalow, there are many outdoor areas
- No campfires when the wind is blowing. Sorry, just too dangerous.
- Please show some restraint with noise levels.
- We're on a septic system, so nothing but provided TP down the potty. Everything else goes in that little can next to the potty.
The little wire baskets in the drains are to keep odd things from going down the drains. Please respect them!ref sd
I've lived all over the world and have been on more adventures than I can count, but find that Joshua Tree really feels like my home now. I've spent the past 10 months or so fixing up my little house and the Airbnb bungalow. I was the original floral vendor for in LA and Altadena Farmers Market. I'm mostly inspired by the desert, color and nature, and how they make me feel. Can't wait to begin selling my floral works here in the magical Mojave high desert!
My life motto, respectfully gleaned from a West African saying is: Nature is the silent witness of intuition.
