“They thought of everything!”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

The Cactus Patch is a perfect place to lay your head after a day(s) at Joshua Tree National Park. It's right at the boundary of the park, perfectly situated for hanging out in town (either Joshua Tree or 29 Palms) and going into the park. The Austins have thought of absolutely everything - they provide a grill, a firepit, a washer/dryer, water bottles, menus, marshmallows, cocoa . . . the list goes on and on! Gayle went out of her way to make our stay wonderful, even texting us ahead of time information about rock climbing in the park. If you have a family I think this would be an especially perfect place to stay (lots of room). The attention to detail and the kindness of the Austins is amazing - would definitely return!

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review! We really try hard to make our guest's stay as easy and comfortable as possible. We love to travel and try to use our experiences to help us make The Cactus Patch the best vacation rental in Joshua Tree. By letting us know what you appreciate, you are helping us in this endeavor. Again, many thanks for taking the time to write this review.

“Cozy, Welcoming Getaway!”

Reviewed 7 May 2014

Gayle and Tom were fantastic hosts! So friendly and hospitable. They gave us great suggestions on Joshua Tree hikes and provided everything and then some for our stay. We had 5 people on our trip and found all that we needed in the condo -- water bottles, flashlights, maps, hiking guides and restaurant menus, plenty of pillows, blankets, towels, coffee, tea. The landscaping and patio areas made us feel at home. There was more than enough room for all 5 of us to sleep, considering that two of us slept outside on the upstairs patio under the stars...more stars than any sky I've ever gazed at! The property is well taken care of and situated in beautiful open land where you can see for miles (think Breaking Bad). It's also conveniently located 3 miles from small downtown and .5 miles from north entrances of Joshua Tree National Park. We were able to get 5 exhibits/hikes in in 24 hours (Split Rock, Cholla Cactus Garden, Ryan Mountain, Keys View, Long Horse Mine Trail). Gayle and Tom even invited us up to join them for sunset at Ryan Mountain! We will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay :)

Response from the owner what a lovely review from such a lovely lady!!!! We so enjoyed hosting you and your group, and look forward to seeing you again! Thank you for taking the time to write this review so other traveler's can see our property through your eyes. Happy Trails!

“Home away From Home”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2014

If you want serentity and beauty with the comforts of home this is the place to go. Tom and Gayle are warm and welcoming and immediatly make you feel at home. The apartment space is fully functional, comfortable, and private. There is so much to do and see. Tom and Gayle have provided a binder with all the recreational activities, monuments and restaruants to make planning your trip even easier. Easy, care free, and regenterating. Highly recommend the Cactus Patch!

Response from the owner Thank you so much for the kind review. We love sharing our desert and our home, especially with wonderful guests like you!
