​​​​​"This is such a beautiful property - the house was even better in person.  You really feel so removed and relaxed. The views were one of my favorite parts.  I can't believe how striking it was.  Everything was perfect for our stay.  I will definitely stay here again."

​- B.B. Costa Mesa

​"Where to begin? Sweet Rock Ranch completely exceeded our expectations.  The home is  flawlessly updated with modern (and very clean) bathrooms & kitchen.  I loved the art and creative remodeling ideas (wine cork baseboards!). The property itself is breathtaking.  We seriously want to come back when our only plans are to hike, meditate, relax, and stargaze.  Experiences like this exemplify how airbnb has completely changed the way we travel.  The best we've had in two years of using airbnb."

 - C.B. Little Rock, AR

"This was a wonderful place to stay for a group of eight friends.   Staggering views of the desert, a hot tub surrounded by boulders, and plenty of outdoor places to sit and feel the city static fall away.  Thank you Deva & John!"

  - N.C. Los Angeles

" It was all I was expecting, and more!   The star gazing patio was my favorite, along with the Jacuzzi in the middle of all those rock formations"

  - M. B. Manhattan Beach


The house was perfect, very comfortable with a large living room, modern and well stocked kitchen and large dining room . . .  The setting was stunning as seen in the pictures. We will certainly return for future visits."

“All the different corners with their seats were so amazing; from every spot it felt like being at the end of the world. Really beautiful."  
- B.V. Thousand Oaks

"The place is magical… beautifully decorated and feels very homey at the same time. The views and surrounding nature are incredible.  The bed was super comfy.  The spa was amazing. I will definitely be back!”

"We just had a long weekend at Sweet Rock Ranch and it was much too short. . . we loved seeing the pictures before we arrived and thought it would be a fun adventure - it ended up being so much more.  We highly recommend this property to enjoy a very comfy home close to Joshua Tree National Park."

​​​​"We could not have been more happy with Sweet Rock. From the tasteful, huge and very comfortable main house, to the snug but romantic out buildings, the very inviting hot tub, to the stunning setting and nearby hiking trails, it was everything we wanted and more. Bonus: Records and a turntable and a great library of topical books!"

​​​​​​​Reviews from our guests . . . 

“From the moment we arrived at Sweet Rock Ranch, we knew we picked the right place. Everything throughout the house ties together nicely and the desert vibe was perfect . . . the guest cabins are great and extremely cozy. We couldn't stop talking about how perfect the house was . . . everyone kept on saying how this was the nicest airbnb that they had stayed at."
- B.F. Los Angeles

"Sweet Rock was a piece of heaven! Everything was as pictured in the images. . . I can't wait to visit this beautiful place again in the near future!"

 - N.S.  Los Angeles

"The Sweet Rock Ranch was everything we hoped it would be and more. The location really makes you feel like you are away from civilization . . . The owners carefully placed and designed several outdoor areas to maximize enjoyment such as the beautiful sunset views from the lookout seating area or the outdoor hot tub nestled privately behind a natural wall of boulders. . . Stargazing is a must at night! Inside, there is plenty of space for a large group and cooking meals was simple."

- T.K.  Santa Barbara

"This was truly one of the best places I have ever stayed. It's a beautiful property. The kitchen is a dream to cook in, and the sitting areas are so relaxing. The hot tub was lovely.  The park is close by, as is Pappy & Harriet's, and the separate cabins were so darling. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!"

-  R.S.  Santa Monica

​​​​​​​"An amazing experience.  You have a beautiful house in a sacred spot.  Best girls weekend yet!"

 - C.M. San Francisco

"Beyond our expectations. . . like staying in paradise on another otherworldly planet of fantastic rocks everywhere you look.  We wanted to stay many more days to immerse ourselves in all the amenities. . . I cannot imagine a nicer place to stay."

 - P.Y. Escondido

"We are in disbelief of the sheer beauty of Sweet Rock Ranch.  Better than the pictures."

-B.H.  Chattanooga, TN

" Absolutely magical.  Beautiful views, peaceful, quiet . . . just perfect."

​ - D.Y.  New York, NY

"Stop looking for other listings, this is the one.  From stargazing to the amazing hikes right in the backyard, we honestly didn't leave for three days."

Joshua Tree Getaway

​​​​​​"One of the most beautiful places I have ever been."

 - J.P.  Manchester, CT

"This home was warm, inviting and even more breathtaking in person than what is depicted in the photos. The owners have truly thought of every detail ... a true gem in Joshua tree.”

​-J.M. Los Angeles

"We just spent the last week in Yosemite, Tahoe and Mammoth.  All great places, but this place is really speaking to us in a unique way.  The homestead cabin is my favorite part of the property - which is saying a lot..."

-P.V.  Los Angeles

"The landscape and scenery is off the charts.  One of the coolest places I've stayed.  Can't wait for another getaway here."

-Lauren, Panama

​“I have stayed at MANY airbnbs and none have the amount of thought and detail that Deva and John have put into Sweet Rock Ranch!  I could go on and on....this place was perfection in every way! The grounds are impeccable and everything has been so perfectly placed! Highlights included the hammock, the nature, the views, and the warm welcome from the hosts and the comfort of the whole home.”
