The ultimate spa for view addicts. Hill-top Casa del Paraiso Desierto nestles against a large Joshua Tree forest just minutes from JTNP (8 min from Pappi & Harriet's); Amenities include WiFi, Wood Fireplace, 2 Gas Fire Pits, and the luxurious Grandee Spa. Hiking/bike trails right from my house. Excellent stargazing here - very little light pollution. Enjoy cuddling with Lucy and Rikki, my 3-year old English Labrador 'pups'. All guests must be 21 or over. no pets.
This is a 'private room' in an upscale desert home. This gorgeous view is north-facing, so the sun never invades the patio or interferes with the panorama. There are excellent hiking/walking trails that start right at the end of my street . I can recommend hikes that range from 30 min to 90 minutes. Guest bath is shared by both guest rooms. Also, I have 2 small English Labrador Retrievers that share the common space so guests who are not dog-friendly may want to find other accommodations. The Cherry room has a well-padded leather futon couch that converts to another comfortable full-size bed. Couples who wish to sleep in separate beds will be provided with linens for the futon at no extra cost. There is an additional $30 fee for the third guest.
In the living room, guests are invited to enjoy music and socialize with me and other guests (in front of a crackling fire if colder than 55 F). Large terrycloth robes are available for all guests using the spa. The Grandee spa seats 7 and has 2 moto-massage seats that feel like an actual massage. The spa stereo speakers can be turned up as loud as you like without bothering neighbors.The spa's piston-assist cover takes 5 seconds to open or close with minimal effort. Guests can store food in fridge and use coffee makers in kitchen. Kitchen is not checked as an amenity, but minor kitchen use is OK (warming food, fixing sandwiches/salads, etc).
Общение с гостями
Can be as much or as little as you like. I do enjoy socializing with guests who are so inclined, and this occurs in my common living area (especially when there is a fire in the fireplace). My default is to leave you alone unless I'm helping you with the spa, the spa stereo, the guest room TV or your wireless internet connection.
Другие важные подробности
Both guest rooms have ceiling fans to augment the AC, but the home is always kept at a comfortable temperature indoors.
Dinner can be hosted for a cash fee if you request it at booking time (I'm a good cook). I guarantee there is no restaurant up here with a view like this.
Cherry room guests may not use the spa later than 10:30 pm if there is a guest in the Vista room. Driveway parking is limited to one vehicle per guest room. You may smoke what you like OUTDOORS only (i.e., the patio). Water is precious, so please limit showers to 5 minutes. Check-in time is flexible, check-out time is 11am. No pets, no kids under 21. There is a limit of 2 persons per guest room. Don't use felony drugs on my property and please act responsibly. It would be very uncool for someone to get seriously wasted (loud, reckless, throwing up, etc.) in my home!

I'm a retired math/physics teacher who worked 20 years as a design engineer. I love the high desert for its beautiful mountains and wildlife. My view and spa are so nice that I want to share the experience with others. I'm a good cook and an easy-going guy, and my two labradors (Lucy & Rikki) are the best friends a guy could have. My grandparents were both oil artists, and you'll see their work displayed. Both my sister and mom live up here in Yucca. My favorite pastimes are long rides on my Suzuki, camping in JTNP, long walks with my furry girls, and watching pretty sunsets.
