Secluded Desert Valley Property in Morongo Valley, 1.5 miles down a dirt road surrounded by 100s of acres of untouched Mountain with Joshua Trees and Cholla cacti throughout. A two hour drive from LA and situated on the border of Yucca Valley. Ten minutes from the Frontier Coffeeshop. Picturesque, private and uninterrupted backdrops in nature. This quaint idyllic experience in nature is perfect for a private romantic getaway as it feels so remote, yet it's 15 minutes from the infamous Pioneertown and just 1.50hrs from Downtown LA/Silverlake/Highland Park. It's the perfect place to create, write, read that book, finish that business venture and to drape yourself in the wisdom of nature and the healing properties of the desert stillness.

The ultimate desert backdrop, complete with privacy and wind protection due to the approx. 350ft high mountain peaks that surround the entire valley on both sides, including the idyllic and pictureque 1.5 mile stretch of dirt road on the approach to the property. It means that no matter where you cast your eye, or take a picture, the whole backdrop is desert mountain, draped with the beautiful Joshua Trees and Cholla cacti as far as the eye can see.

There are excellent vantage points to view the entire valley from, two 80 sq ft graded platforms, accessed on foot or by a 4x4 vehicle via a 200 meter long dirt road with a gentle incline. There is also an excellent vantage point from the opposite hill accessed via a steep dirt road, which can be walked or driven by off roading vehicles. There are spectacular views all across the top of the mountain ridges on the hundreds and hundreds of 'Bureau of Land Management' property that hug the entire property, meaning there is seemingly endless acreage of raw natural and open desert land for your peaceful and private desert walks.

There are 3 vintage trailers on site.

Velvet Fontaine - 1969 Kencraft, with a bright orange & light blue interior and groovy charm. Airstream International - 1975, Silver Spartan Neva - 1955 Spartan Imperial Mansion, Silver.

The very private and quiet property has one dirt road that runs through it. It has approximately 5 cars driving through the property per day - with a maximum of 10 passing cars per day.

Velvet Mountain is 20 minutes from the Joshua Tree National Park and 15 minutes from Pioneertown, which was built as a 1880s style film set by Hollywood legends such as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers in 1946 to provide a backdrop with 1880s style false-front facades and interesting interiors for tourists to visit.

You have fully functional kitchens in both the Kencraft and in the Airstream, however my next door neighbour, Luciana is an excellent chef and can be hired to cater for you during your stay for an additional fee. She is Brazilian and is experienced to cater for all types of cuisines.

It's a very quiet, small and supportive community in the valley. We look forward to welcoming you and I am here to answer your questions or any special requests you may have!
