The space is as pictured – truly a great place to unplug and commune with the desert/nature. Very clean and well equipped with anything you may need to ninja a tasty meal. Jilyn who has lived on the property for 30 years is beyond a delight and is so knowledgable and passionate about the history of the land. She took me out for a killer tour of the property on ATV’s which was a blast. She also brought me over the most lovely bag of local artisan goodies and fruit. Too awesome. I very much look forward to returning to the property again.

We had a great experience! This is a beautiful, private piece of property with great attention to detail. The indoor fireplace warmed the house beautifully and gave great ambience. The Hot Tub was a treat at Sunset and after a hike and day in the park. The property was fully stocked, linens and furniture was high end and functional. It was a lovely getaway and we can’t wait to return.

Everything from the bedroom to the kitchen and bathroom was thoughtfully prepared. The property is incredible. We spent the days hiking and exploring the 160 acre property. It is easy to find complete isolation where no other house is in view and you can enjoy the Joshua Tree landscape.

The apartment was designed so beautifully – made for relaxation – and the 160 acre property definitely cannot be done justice with photographs alone – it almost seemed unreal in it’s natural beauty. I’d highly recommend staying with these ideal hosts at the Talawahee Ranch!

Talawahee is a sanctuary. Silence, beauty and kindness abound (seriously, you could not ask for more authentic, kind-hearted hosts). Clean accommodations, plush towels, a comfy bed, fun and delicious!! treats for people and pups, a BBQ, a hot tub, a wood burning stove and desert sky and mountains as far as the eye can see. What else does one need…?

If it is timeliness and consideration you expect from your host—add competent and caring to the list. We had big expectations. They were exceeded! There were (2) in our party–making the accommodation just right. If you appreciate the JTree natural aesthetic, the Talawahee ranch is right out of central casting. It is not possible to exaggerate its sensual beauty or effect.
