Guest Reviews

This house exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful and super clean. Communication with the owner was so easy and really appreciated the ease of checking in and out. Will definitely stay here again when we need it!


“The house was super spacious, with a wonderful, fully stocked kitchen which we used everyday to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. I looked around for months to find the perfect place with an affordable price point and I found it.” 


My Husband and I just returned home from Valentine's weekend at the Starlight Villas. I was so impressed by the property that I wanted to take a moment and write a review. We stayed in the Roadrunner Ranch house and It was like being in your own comfortable home, it was very clean, had all the kitchen amenities you could need, very comfortable bed and pillows. The property itself was well maintained and decorated nicely, it also had a relaxing Jacuzzi. We had an amazing time and we will definitely be returning."

“The kitchen-living areas are spacious and well-furnished so there's room both to be together and to get away from one another. The owner is very friendly and helpful with requests; the town with food, stores, and the National Park Visitor Center is within walking distance; and the park itself is a short drive away.”


We had a fabulous stay at Starlight Villas. The house was very neat and clean. The house/layout matched the listing's description and was perfect for our needs. The guest room is nicely separated from the master suite, which was nice when our guests came to visit. While we stayed at the Starlight house, we think we'd be very happy staying at any of the villas. We talked to other guests who were there during our stay, and everyone seemed very happy with the villas. Cliff, the owner, is very personable, and was able to help with any request we had. We also enjoyed the well-maintained hot tub every night. And the location was perfect for our daily trips into Joshua Tree National Park. We give it our recommendation, and we plan to stay again in the future.


An excellent little guest house village comprised of small mid century cottages decorated in different themes. We stayed in the Monet Suite and it was super cute. Decked out in home style decor it's perfectly not-too-fancy and makes for a great home away from home. Cliff, the owner, is super nice and makes staying here crazy easy with Paypal billing and having the keys easily accessible. Amenities include a jacuzzi, grills, porch sitting, and spacious parking with shady trees. Prices are extremely reasonable and we liked the earlier check in and later check out he offers unlike most hotels. I highly recommend!!


Members of our extended family spent the weekend in the Starlight House on a visit to Joshua Tree, and it was comfortable home-away-from-home for all of us: two grandparents, our two grown daughters, two teen-aged grandsons and a baby. There was room for all, and lots of enjoyment of the pool table and the hot tub. The kitchen-living areas are spacious and well-furnished so there's room both to be together and to get away from one another. The owner is very friendly and helpful with requests; the town with food, stores, and the National Park Visitor Center is within walking distance; and the park itself is a short drive away. Highly recommended!


Very comfortable beds. Extremely clean, well maintained and with some nice artistic touches (loved the floor in the fireplace area!). Spacious modern bathrooms. Cliff was very welcoming and keen to help out with anything we might need. Will definitely come back next time we want to stay in the area.


We all really enjoyed our stay at the Starlight Villas. The house was very clean and easily held six of us for two nights. It was nice and quiet and the hot tub was perfect for relaxing and watching the stars late at night. In terms of location it's great due to it's close proximity to the Joshua Tree Park entrance and the nearby Joshua Tree nightlife that's within walking distance.  


We had a wonderful stay here, the house is beautiful, spacious, and quiet. Everything was the way we expected, and Cliff went above and beyond to help us. The house is in a great location and has great amenities. Come here when in Joshua tree! Thank you so much for a wonderful, memorable weekend. 


We stayed here over the weekend and the staff was very friendly and the accommodations were lovely. The amenities were perfect and we enjoyed the quiet and hot tub. This is a perfect place to decompress comfortably after a day of climbing in beautiful Joshua tree. Thanks so much - we will be back soon!

Shelly and family

The property was all that was promised and more. Our host was more than helpful and took care of all of our needs.  Highly recommended vacation spot and we will be back soon!


I've stayed at a few places while filming in JT and Starlight is by far the best experience. The guy Cliff that runs the place is super accommodating and the rooms are a fun and visual experience all on their own... coming back soon!


We really enjoyed our stay at the Starlight House. Our kids really loved playing on the patio and we all loved the artistic details, including the faux flagstone floor. We looking forward to coming back. Thanks for being a great host!


We recently took a desert vacation and found this place to be just what we were looking for. The owner renovated the house himself and you can see his attention to the details everywhere.  We cooked a few meals ourselves and the kitchen had everything we needed. My husband and son enjoyed the pool table and we didn't use the laundry room but it's probably the nicest and cleanest we've ever seen in a rental. Other nice things about the home are the front patio, the red brick walkways, the art, and very comfortable couches. We loved our time here and we definitely hope this house is available to rent again next time.


I had a fantastic experience with friends at Cliff's place. It was very clean and had all the amenities needed to make the vacation a very comfortable one. Location is excellent and the hot tub is a great additional perk. Most definitely planning on coming back.
