“Great place for relaxation!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

My husband and I enjoy traveling with our two dogs and we often stay in cabins. Jackalope qualifies as one of the best equipped and most relaxing places where we have stayed. There is a fenced in back yard where even our big Belgian sheepdog had enough room and was safe. The house was comfortable and clean, decorated in a fun 70s retro style. Everything worked, including the tv and hot tub. There is a bbq and a fireplace in the back yard and everywhere, comfortable seating for relaxing and reading. Be prepared for a 2 mile drive down a washboard dirt road. We drove to nearby beautiful Joshua Tree National Park one day for hiking and sightseeing, but enjoyed just chilling out at Jackalope.

“The Very Best Desert Vacation Possible”
Reviewed 13 February 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We have now stayed at three different Joshua Desert Resorts, all visits being absolutely terrific. Our visit to Jackalope for November 2012 was our latest vacation with this excellent organization. Like both of our previous rentals, Jackalope had its own delightful cozy atmosphere, was fully equipped, and was perfectly maintained by the very helpful local maintenance crew. Our month went all too quickly, with lazy days in the fenced garden with its hot tub, watching the evening light fade over the Sheephole Mountains vista to the northeast, the sunsets over the San Bernandino Mountains to the west, and then the spectacular night skies – with even a couple of the brightest meteors we’ve ever seen. Plus frequent trips to nearby Joshua Tree National Park with its spectacular rocks and easy-to-handle trails. Joshua Desert Resorts is just about the most ethical company we’ve dealt with, with owner Greg and manager John totally dedicated to their guests being well looked after and content. This operation is truly a labour of love. We cannot wait to get back – this is our favourite vacation spot from the many we’ve stayed at over much of the world.

“Amazing Desert Oasis”
Reviewed 26 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

What a fantastic retreat from the adventures in Joshua Tree NP. Arriving on the back-end of a thunder storm we were enveloped by the tranquility and calm of the of the atmospheric music playing when we opened the door onto a wonderfully equipped, stylish retreat - we made cocktails and half expected Don Draper to jump out of one of the many spacious closets.... Wonderfully thought through, this was a perfect base for exploring the park - it was almost tempting to stay around the house all day languishing but no, we had come a long way (London - to escape the Olympics) and were determined to exhaust ourselves every day hiking - making our return in the evening all the more special for the cocktails, the food from the BBQ and amazing sunsets (and sunrises). We would love to return at some point - who knows?! Perfect!

“Magical”
Reviewed 30 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Such a lovely abode!

After a drive down a long, dark lonely road, the property was warm, inviting, and the sounds of the perfect 50s and 60s soundtrack beckoned us in, past the watchful eye of a roadrunner perched on our front door.

It was like stepping back into time, a place you'd imagine Don Draper having a rendezvous during his California escape...

Everything was so well thought out: very clean, dimmers on all the antique lamps, vintage furnishings, comfy beds and cots, indoor/outdoor speakers, sunrise-facing front porch and of course, the sweet back yard complete with fire pit, grill and hot tub. And a cute vanity to spa it up in the bathroom after late night hot tub sessions. We are avid eaters and drinkers, and the kitchen was so well stocked we had a blast cooking our faces off, grilling copious amounts of food, and whipping up drinks. (Blender AND a shaker, that's how it is done)

Thank you for the bottle of wine and the desert escape!
