  • Hi! I am writing on behalf of guests who will be checking in 03/31, who are traveling with 2 yr old twins and looking for 4 hikes they could do with kids on foot as well as others they could do with their children in packs. Could you recommend any? Is there a place to stargaze? Are cactus blooming?

Company information

I'm what you would call an "Accidental Host". My skills as a professional photographer lead me to meeting with a gentleman who was looking to sell some property here in the desert. I'm tech savvy as well and next thing you know I'm managing his properties for him here in the desert and in Europe. Word of mouth spread and now two years later, I have a portfolio of vacation rentals here in 29 Palms, including this home owned by Jeff and Barbara Dunn. I've been a resident here in the desert for 24 years and counting. Joshua Tree National Park is my "church" and my photography muse. I love sharing my passion for this arid landscape with visitors from all over the world. Whether it be sharing some of my favorite locations in the park or dining at one of our local restaurants. There's more here to do than meets the eye. I encourage you to connect with locals and experience as much of this unique landscape while you are here.

Property information

Roadrunner's Roost was built in 1972 by the Wellock Family, hence the name of the street the home resides on. The home is currently owned by the Dunn Family, who's grandfather was one of the early settlers in 29 Palms during the 1930's. Here's a message from them... "Welcome to Roadrunner's Roost! Barbara and I bought this property years ago used it as a rental for several years. In 2018, the year of my retirement, the home became vacant and we inspected the property. Our decision to remodel the home soon became a labor of love. The property, in our opinion, has all the attributes needed to experience the 'desert solitude' that Barbara and I so value. This rustic old cabin mixed with modern conveniences is truly reflective of desert living. Expansive views, dark starlit nights and solitude are the elements that will haunt your memory of Roadrunner's Roost. It is our hope that this home will serve to lead you to an understanding and appreciation of the desert Barbara and I have loved for years. Roadrunner's Roost is the door step to our beautiful desert that means so much to us. Enjoy!" Jeff and Barbara Dunn
