Book Direct. Stay Local. Give Local.

Desert Beacon is the premier vacation rental company for those visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We are committed to providing you with a exceptional experience by providing the finest luxury vacation rentals in Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms, Yucca Valley and the entire Morongo Basin, as well as valuable area information for your desert vacation.

The Desert Beacon is committed to giving back to our community. When you book directly with us, you book directly with local owners and save up to 20% when compared to the larger booking platforms.  We are able to offer lower prices compared to the larger booking platforms, and we are able to pass a portion of the booking proceeds of each booking on to local non-profit and community-based organizations.  Each property is unique and each property owner supports an organization of their choice, many of whom are vital to the well-being and sustainability of our local community which hosts upwards of four million tourists annually. It is a win-win.


At Desert Beacon our mission is to balance the unique needs of our local Joshua Tree Gateway area community with the needs of the property owners and the many visitors they host annually. We foster the spirit of eco-stewardship and offer services which are vital to the local community members to whom we pledge to provide a living wage, paid time off, employee benefits, and opportunities for professional growth within our organization. We are also proud to work with local property owners and hosts to ensure that the guests we serve are well taken care of and are provided the resources they need to ensure that tourism can continue to be a sustainable part of our local economy.
