“Heaven in the Desert”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 millennials) spent three nights in this magical place to be near Joshua Tree NP. The casita is appointed with such loving care and attention to every detail. The views are extraordinary and the screened in porch is set up for sleeping and eating meals so you feel so connected to the outdoors. Robin and Max are lovely, generous people who make sure you have what you need but give you all the privacy you want. I cannot imagine a better start to our hiking vacation.

Some details: We spent our days hiking in JTNP which is about a 15-20 minute drive away and had dinner twice at Pappy and Harriet's just down the road from the house. It is necessary to make reservations in advance so if you do not plan to cook (which is an option as the kitchen is well supplied), plan ahead. There are good grocery stores about 10-15 minutes drive away, but not many decent places to eat out. This house is a special place - off the grid and powered by wind and solar. There is a spiritual quality to the surroundings and Robin/Max have clearly poured their hearts into the property with beautiful landscaping and many places outdoors to sit and contemplate the rocks and desert beauty. We were sad to leave and felt we had been given a remarkable gift to share this spot for 3 days.

“Wonderful desert retreat”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My wife and I spent almost a week in March at High Desert Eden. It was one of our best vacations ever, as the house is secluded, with great views of the desert and mountains, but close enough to hikes, Joshua Tree and shops to not feel too remote. There is a wonderful nature preserve a mile away, and another in town. I didn't realize ahead of time that it is 'off-grid' with solar and wind-powered electricity - not that you could tell it from inside (everything is normal 120 v). The owners are very friendly and helpful - but will also leave you alone if that's your preference.
The only problem we had was with wifi access. They do have it, but the router is in the main house, and we could pick up a signal only in two spots in the rental house, and one of those was intermittent. On the other hand, it was rather nice to be more off grid than we planned!
We'd definitely return.

“Awesome Location”

We came to High Desert Eden to see the meteor shower, which was truly impressive. Even without the meteors, the stars are unbelievable. But there is so much more to enjoy! From the property you have unimpeded views of desert and surrounding mountains. My 4-year old grandson loved hiking the trails on the property and climbing on the rocks - definitely the high point for him. We loved the sleeping porch, sitting around the fire pit, getting up at 4 am to watch the meteors, watching the critters in the morning while having breakfast on the porch, and generally enjoying the serenity of desert.
The house is fully equipped with everything you need for relaxing and cooking, including interesting books, binoculars, flashlights, comfortable beds, plenty of outdoor chairs and lounges, hiking trails, and beautiful desert gardens, including several water dishes to attract the local wildlife. We have stayed in many vacation rental homes, and I have to say Robin and Max are the most wonderful hosts! They made our family feel very welcome, even preparing the fire pit for a fire each day. This isolated casita is a gem! Perfect for retreat from hectic city life!

“Beauty in the High Desert”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

The surrounding vistas are beyond description. The High Desert is more beautiful than I could have imagined. The beautiful grounds of High Desert Eden are artfully manicured by Max, the owner. If you are looking for solitude amidst beautiful surroundings, then this is the place for you. The Casita is lovely, clean and inviting. I traveled here with friends and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
