Kris’s place was fabulous. The pictures don’t do it justice! Beautifully decorated house, huge well-appointed yard, had everything we needed for a great trip. We would definitely stay here again when we come back to Joshua Tree.

We loved staying at the Joshua Tree Rectory! My favorite part of the house, other than the furniture and decor, was the backyard. The backyard had everything you'd need to enjoy some relaxation time in the desert - hot tub, fire pit, BBQ grill, hammock, picnic table, and games! I…
