Centrally located just half a mile from Joshua Tree National Park's downtown village, The Starlight Villas offers a different type of getaway. Our 6 villa, 1.5 acre property offers a spacious, stylish, and convenient lodging option for visitors of Joshua Tree Park and its surrounding attractions.

Formerly a historic private estate and well-kept secret, The Starlight Villas were fully redesigned and renovated 2012-2013 and are now available for booking.

Our colorful and spacious property is the perfect place to relax, refresh, and use as a base to explore the many attractions and events surrounding Joshua Tree National Park.

Each unity features central air conditioning / heat, a fully-equipped kitchen with full sized refrigerator, new appliances, cookware, tableware, a spacious living room, Satellite TV, and most include a private or semi-private patio.

We are just blocks away from Joshua Tree’s lively downtown village that features eclectic restaurants, boutiques, a weekly farmers market, antique shopping, an art gallery, organic health store, and saloon.

Joshua Tree's surreal landscapes, majestic rock formations, and clear, starry nights have a way of attracting creative and inspired individuals and groups.

Our visitors come from around the world and include couples, families, hikers, climbers, artists, musicians, and nature lovers drawn to the magical ambiance of this national scenic landmark.
