Holiday Rental House
In the Land of Endless Vistas rests Ranch du Soleil, a classic 1950s, homestead cabin in the Mojave Desert. It was recently remodeled with enough amenities to keep you comfortable. Located 25 miles from Joshua Tree National Park, it is a secure property with 360 degree expansive views of beautiful desert landscapes including Goat Mountain and is a perfect getaway to unplug from city life and enjoy peace, quiet, beauty, wildlife and amazing night skies. The extremely low levels of light pollution in this area provides excellent star gazing opportunities nightly and is ideal for meteor showers. Sleeping outside under the stars is a perfect way to observe the starry night skies and there are cots available for outdoor sleeping.

It was recently remodeled with enough amenities to keep you comfortable. Located 25 miles from Joshua Tree National Park, it is a secure property with 360 degree expansive views of beautiful desert landscapes including Goat Mountain and is a perfect getaway to unplug from city life and enjoy peace, quiet, beauty, wildlife and amazing night skies. The extremely low levels of light pollution in this area provides excellent star gazing opportunities nightly and is ideal for meteor showers. Sleeping outside under the stars is a perfect way to observe the starry night skies and there are cots available for outdoor sleeping. Sitting on 2.5 acres of fully fenced, pristine, undisturbed desert land, be aware that the desert flora is fragile, and takes a long time to renew, treat it with kindness. We also have critters such as snakes and scorpions, so be careful where you step. The cabin's small kitchen includes a full-size fridge, double-sink, propane four burner stove-top and oven, toaster, and electric kettle. Kitchen has full compliment of dishes, glasses, pots, pans, silverware and cooking utensils. And in addition to a wall heater, there's a wood-burning stove in the living room. The space comes stocked with organic coffee (roasted by your host), herbal teas, and natural body care products. We always use all natural, essential-oil-based cleaning products and unscented detergents as we are on a septic tank. The full bathroom has a conventional toilet, vanity, sink, tub and shower and hosts a stack washer/dryer for your convenience. There is even a clothesline to air-dry your clothes outside. We charge a $75 cleaning fee, which goes directly to our cleaners. We are committed to providing a living wage for the local folks who clean our space. Covering our cleaning costs with this fee allows us to keep the nightly price down. The outside rear of the cabin has a fire pit for relaxing around with family and friends, roasting marshmallows, making smores or barbecuing food. Bring your own firewood. In addition, the back yard has a horseshoe pit to test your skill. Ranch du Soleil is only 3/10ths of a mile on dirt track road. That being said, the dirt roads can get quite sandy and/or rough in the neighborhood, and we suggest that you follow our noted directions for the best route to Ranch du Soleil. Look for them in the location description, available upon booking.

Interaction with guests
I am available by phone/text if you need answers to ANYTHING. No question is silly, just ask me. You will be given a code for the lock on the gate that includes the gate key and the front door key. Make sure that the gate is ALWAYS closed with the rod through the gate and the lock through the rod, when you are on property. If you do not want to lock the gate when you are on property, it is totally safe to leave it unlocked. But when you venture out in your vehicle, please close and lock the gate with padlock. At the end of your stay, please return the keys into the lock box and then, spin the tumblers.

A quiet little place, with full kitchen, 2BR and 1BA. It's near Goat Mounting for hiking, the Integratron to get your meditation/sound bath on, and Big Rock for your daily inspiration. The view of the night sky is amazing with 2 patios, 1 in front...More

About the neighbourhood
This area is for communing with nature, whether you are hiking, walking, meditating, riding...go outside and listen. It is serenely rural. The closest neighbor is more than a football field away. Only 3/10ths of a mile on dirt track road, but not many cars driving past the front gates. You will see more Jack Rabbits, Roadrunners, and flocks of Quail! A mile from Integratron and the Giant Rock, it can be a mystically place so silent you can hear your own breath.
Getting around
The public bus system is the Morongo Basin Transit Authority, but we assume that you arrived via car, SUV or motorcycle. Hiking is ok during the spring, fall and winter, but care will have to be taken in the summer when temps climb to the low 100's and carrying water is essential.
