Description

The Tile House is a magic place. A vortex in the desert of love and space. This is the place to retreat and unwind, find yourself, breathe and explore. Not available or appropriate for parties or large gatherings. A spot to meditate, cook, and watch the sky, the clouds and stars at night. A healing, colorful environment for rejuvenating your spirit and soul.

A two bedroom house with outdoor hot tub and gorgeous views, and gated courtyard with firepit. Queen-sized beds, picture windows, cotton linens, and towels. Fabulous and reliable WiFi. iPod dock with speakers. Full Kitchen, refrigerator, coffee maker, mixing bowls, wood-burning stove, swamp cooler. Laundry facility on site. Fireplace and pellet stove. Dog-door for your pet to access a fenced and secure yard. Great for large get togethers or a romantic getaway. Sleeps 4 comfortably but also has a sofa sleeper for a kid.

Cradled inside and outside by a mosaic made of Mexican tile, smalti, handmade Perry Hoffman ceramics, tile and fused glass, found desert tiles, found objects, stained glass and ceramic bric-brac, THERE you find yourself situated in complete silence, watching the desert light crawl across the fast and intricate landscape which is ALL around you.

7 miles from the town of 29 Palms and the east entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. 360 degree views amid the peace and quiet, beauty and wonder, where indoor and outdoor osmosis expands your exposure to the desert. Touches of luxury, whimsy, and function make the visitor feel safe but also adventurous.

Perry has been working on his roadside attraction / museum / gallery / magic spot / mosaic house since it began in 2000. 11 years later, 800 sqft were added, and approximately 2500 sqft of mosaic applied and grouted. Glass fused baubles, hand made ceramics and a magical desert. This desert homestead turned beacon of love vision is waiting to reach the stars.

The Tile House sits in the middle of the vast and open desert. You need not walk two feet to be a part of the wilderness, now it is up to you to look around both macro and micro and see what you can see here. Jack rabbits, cottontails, ravens, scorpions, desert iguana, snakes, Gambel's quail, lesser night hawks, owls, coyotes, roadrunners, sphinx moths, and kangaroo rats, flash floods, dust devils, lightning storms, sunsets, summer rains, empty roads, wildflowers, and cacti are some of the things you might happen to see. Walk gently in nature. At night, absorb the clear starry skids, and August and November meteor showers.

Remember, there are rusty bits and broken tiles in the sand. This is a work in progress. Be careful and don't walk about barefoot. You have been warned. Not recommended for children, unless prior arrangements and agreements are made.


You are ironically completely alone in the middle of nowhere and the center of the universe.

The whole house is yours except the middle room, across from the Buddha fountain, our owners closet.

I am always available by iPhone for any assistance you may need.

We are 15 minutes from 29 Palms, groceries and restaurants. Also we are just 10 miles to the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM

Smoking outside only. Shower before using the hot tub. Be kind to mother nature and respect the desert. It is a magical place.
Don't EVER leave door opens. Wildlife is often NOT seen but is EVER present and they are watching YOU. Rats, scorpions and SNAKES to name a few of the fun creatures, can find their way in if you leave a door OPEN. Don't do it!!! Snakes and reptiles and three kinds of squirrels also live here in this WILDERNESS.

Totally enchanting--there wasn't one square inch of this house that didn't make us happy.

This is by far the most special place I've had the pleasure of staying at. A true sanctuary.

The most unique and memorable Airbnb I've ever been to. Not only was it like staying inside a museum, it was also comfy, warm, inviting, and clean. Don't miss this.

Fantastic! Unique! Artsy! It took us about a whole day to look at every single detail. We truly had an unforgettable stay. We did a liquid diet cleanse and so we cooked yummy soups, smoothies, juices and shots in the wonderful kitchen. The dogs were beyond thrilled. Can't wait to go back!

The desert is one of my favorite places. The sky is BIG and the stars are always out at night and you never know what animals you will see in this wilderness. The Tile House sits in a wilderness of vast beauty.
