You can sleep outside under the stars on your private deck if you bring your own sleeping bags.This apartment is a comfortable home away from home. Amazing views and lots of amenities. We are bee-keepers, and have hives on the property. Honeybees don't normally sting unless you bother the hive, but you will see them on the property collecting pollen. Located 5 minutes from Joshua Tree which has funky shops, art galleries, and several restaurants. On Saturdays, there is a farmer's market that has great produce and crafts. Twenty minutes away is Landers which has 'The Integratron' with it's fabulous sound baths, Giant Rock, and Gubler's Orchid Nursery. We are sandwiched between 2 'big ' cities, Yucca Valley and 29 Palms which have their own special appeal. Four minutes away is Sunfair which hosts the Joshua Tree Music Festival twice a year. We are 1/2 mile from the boundary of The Joshua Tree National Park, so you can take a hike into the Park whenever you like, and we can recommend different places to go based on what you'd like to do. The reason we talk about distance in minutes instead of miles is because we never have traffic jams. Some traveler's want to stay in town to be close to the restaurants or bars. Some people want to stay somewhere with a view. If you want the views, then The Cactus Patch is the place for you!More

About the neighbourhood
We are located 3 miles East of Joshua Tree on 10 acres of land. We are a half mile below JTNP boundary with 360 degree view. You can walk onto Park land from our house to do a little exploring and rock-climbing, without paying the entrance fee to get into the Park. We are 8 miles from 49 Palms Canyon which is a great hike to an oasis within JTNP that you can visit without paying an entrance fee. It is a moderately strenuous hike of 3 miles round trip to get to and from an actual desert oasis. If you drive into JTNP thru the Joshua Tree entrance, 'hidden valley' is 18 miles from our house, 'key's view is 22 miles, and 'ryan mountain trailhead' is 24 miles.
