Made our stay extra special! The Type Inn is a gem! The layout, ambiance, vibe and eclectic art/artifacts made our stay extra special. We enjoyed returning after our days spent exploring Joshua Tree National Park. Close to JTNP and the town for food, shops, etc. It was apparent that our host enjoyed creating a place and environment (including the yard) that would be unique and memorable. One of my favorite VRBO stays!

Great Location & Vintage Flair
We went to Joshua tree for my husband's birthday. The Type Inn was the perfect place to stay, very close to the National Park and some cute artistic shops. Loved the typewriters and especially the record player. It was cold and snowing on our visit but it was quiet, nice and cozy stay- hope to visit again.

We loved staying at Lou's house! The house was a perfect size and the decor was lovely! We liked that it was at the end of the paved road with the opposite side of the street pretty barren of houses except in the distance. Hills and star filled sky! Yet it was close to hwy 62 so very convenient too. Definitely would like to stay here again!! Thank you Lou! 🙂

Joshua Tree gem
The Type Inn is clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient. Keyless entry was easy to use. The house was spotless. It’s on the edge of town but only two blocks from the street that leads into the national park entrance that is the absolute best of JTNP’s three entry points. There was very little street traffic. Birds provided the ambient noise. Heat/AC system, kitchen and bathroom plumbing all worked perfectly. In addition to the park, this rental offers easy access to Palm Springs, Pioneertown and La Copine, the wonderful foodie mecca. The house is charming and cozy. A great value!
