Stay in your very own bohemian yurt where you can see stars all while sleeping in the comfort of a queen sized bed. The view out your front door will take your breath away--40 expansive acres full of Joshua Trees and with views of the surrounding mountains.  

Luxuriate in our gorgeous outdoor shower and bathtub, follow the trail to our giant fire pit, and get ready for some of the best sunsets you've ever seen. The yurt even comes with a treasure chest full of costumes and games. A wood burning stove will help keep you warm in colder months.  See where the desert takes you!  Located 10 miles from the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park and 6 miles from the Integratron, Luna Vista Ranch is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the dreamscape of the high desert. We have running water but NO ELECTRICITY so prepare to go off grid. This is rural desert land which means there are “neighbors” but they are acres away not like city neighbors. Sound carries very easily in the desert so you may hear lots of animal sounds at various times. The desert can get very windy but the yurt is built with a wind kit that can withstand hurricane force winds. I repeat, we have NO ELECTRICITY and the desert is notorious for extreme weather, cold and hot. We have a cast-iron stove for heat in the winter months.

My sister and I just had the most amazing weekend here at this wonderful property! I really don't have enough good things to say about it... the hosts were wonderful and easy and quick to communicate with and the property itself far exceeded our expectations. You will find yourself surrounded by nature and sleeping under a million visible stars. The outdoor bath tub and bathroom area were complete luxury in the middle of a desert and the same could be said for the yurt. Raised above ground it was clean, beautifully decorated and even equipped with costumes, games, yoga mats, a hula hoop and so on! The outdoor seating/lounge area and large fire pit were also incredible. I really have not a single negative thing to say about tis place. So hurry up and book it if its available, I promise you won't regret it!

It was so amazing and relaxing! I will definitely one stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants to do some glamping. The winds were pretty strong but having the fireplace in the yurt really made it cozy and comfortable. Also, everything was so clean and well maintained. Taking a bath in the bathouse overlooking the Joshua trees and beautiful mountains was pretty incredible. Thank you!!

We loved staying here! The stars were unreal- we loved sitting by the fire each night and making smores after hiking in Joshua Tree during the day. A wonderful experience all around!

This was the perfect getaway I could have ever asked for. I love that it was so private. The hosts really thought through every single possible detail that a guest would need in order to stay comfortably. The night sky was nothing like I've ever seen. I loved every single part of my stay!

If you are burned out, working too much and need the environment to force you to unplug, this is your place. It was amazing. The coyotes, birds, sunrise and sunsets, bath tub, and overall sense of freedom was amazing. Bonnie addressed my questions quickly and made sure I had everything I needed. Highly recommend! Will be back!

Beautiful yurt and property with everything you need! Very relaxing and Just far enough from the park to feel remote but close enough to shops/restaurants if you want!

Luna Vista Ranch is the best camping experience we've had in years. It's a beautifully maintained piece of land and the the Yurt and bathroom are perfect. It was a great place to see the stars, have a fire, and get off the grid for a while.

Bonnie was great and checking in and super-responsive to our questions beforehand and during. The place was kept really clean and was better maintained than even some hotels we've stayed at.

If you're in the Joshua Tree or Palm Springs area and want a really relaxing place to unwind this is it. We'll be back soon I'm sure.
