Designed by artist John Henry Jones, the Ranch House Hacienda is a private, complete, Tiny-Home suite available for rent on the Joshua Tree Container Resort: Wellness Inn and Spa compound. At 512 Sq. Ft. it's the largest standalone unit on the ranch, w/ 1 queen & a 10" futon queen, full kitchen, bathroom, private screened-in outdoor living room, close access to private hot tub cabana & lap pool, hammock palapa, patio, lounges, daybed, BBQ, fire pit and outdoor showers.
El Ranchito Wellness Inn and Spa is a super chill spot. A lot of awesome musicians, actors, directors, painters, hikers, cyclists, equestrians, stargazers, and climbers have stayed and recreated here, and created some fabulous things. Lots of good juju here. This working horse ranch is close to the JTNP North entrance, which is the best and fastest way in. Aside from the magical delights up in the park, there's great hiking, biking and desert wandering leaving right out from the ranch house, across the open desert, or ride the dirt roads in our area, or bushwhack cross country in the nearby foothills.
We're also two hours away from Parker, AZ, and access to the Colorado river.
On the ranch there's a pool patio spa next to a lap pool, lounges and daybeds, a palapa with eight hammocks, two outdoor showers and a second spa in in a private cabana (a private hot tub in a cabana that locks from the inside, uses a vacant/occupied sign system, and has no sight lines in), all make El Ranchito de la Playa a fun, romantic and often inspiring sanctuary. It's really important to us that you revel and recreate in our little corner of the Mojave, a place we dearly love. Our goal is to achieve an almost instant dropping of your heart rate as you first relax into a hammock, lounge, rocking chair, or jacuzzi, take in the oceanic desert that engulfs you and the trillions of stars above that shine down, the galaxial sky's awesomeness inevitably softening the heart.
We also offer ATV, Quad, and Fat-Sand-Tire Electric Mountain Bike guided tours of the surrounding desert area. Please let us know if you'd like to book one and we'll send you the rate card.
Additionally we directly offer golf cart rentals to our guests staying at the ranch. If interested please let us know and we'll send you the info.
And if there's any biking, running, climbing, dirtbiking, or hiking you'd like to do while you're in the Joshua Tree area and would like 'em, we'll give you solid recommends (I.e. re: hiking: how long, how difficult, elevation gain/mostly flat/rollers, etc). Think of us as your Joshua Tree Desert concierge.
When reaching out to us with inquiries and information requests, please include the dates you are interested in, number of campers, number of vehicles, type of camping rig (tent v. trailer, etc.), any pets, etc.

Little slice of paradise!
Such a wonderful property! Steve was such a kind host, and we were lucky to have such great conversation with him during our stay. Thank you Steve, couldn’t recommend this listing highly enough!
Enchanting space in open desert
This is an awesome place to stay in the desert. The hot tubs and other outdoor areas totally exceeded my expectations. The Ranch House is basically a full studio apartment with two beds, very comfortable! Easy access to the oasis (northeast) entrance to the park, and there are several restaurants nearby in downtown twentynine palms. The town of Joshua Tree is also not far with more restaurants and shops.
