Location, location, location. Surrounded 360 degrees by Joshua Tree National Park and habitat conservation parcels, Think Tank is a one-minute private hike into the park or a one mile drive into the main park entrance, but only four miles to downtown Joshua Tree. The nearest visible structure is almost a quarter of a mile away, and the night skies are stunningly dark: yet this home is easily accessed by car and in the secure Monument Manor area, at the end of a very drivable dirt road. In order to encourage wildlife, every effort has been made to keep the grounds natural and free of disturbance. Inside, you'll find polished concrete floors and Jenn Air appliances including a gas cooktop, fridge with ice maker, and a dishwasher. There's a foam topper on the queen bed for firmness options. ...Location, location, location.

Amenities include wifi, air conditioning, gas heat, enclosed fireplace, basic cable TV, on demand hot water, glass shower, laundry, Surfas cookware, an assortment of spices, oils, coffeemaker, coffee and tea, large stone fire pit, drum and weber BBQs, ranch-style wood fired outdoor soaking tub, and critter pond. Visitors share the 5 gated acres with tortoises, coyotes, bobcats, hawks, eagle, quail, jackrabbits, seasonal wildflowers, and more. Intimate and romantic, this home is suited for one person or a couple but not for larger groups. If you're looking for more than a month of bliss, please inquire about the sliding rate scale! To the west are the vistas of Lil' Tank, the remnants of a homestead cabin also open for the rustic enjoyment of guests. We're new to Trip Advisor, but have been hosting in Joshua Tree for almost ten years, with solid five-star ratings on other sites. So sorry, we can no longer accept pets at this home due to the sensitivity of our resident wildlife.More
