About This Listing
Roomy and cozy Mid-Century Modern house. Views for miles through large picture windows. House is great for large groups. Well equipped kitchen. BBQ patio and fire pit areas for outdoor dining and stargazing. Very close to Park and downtown JT.
My priority is to make your stay in Joshua Tree a memorable one. The listed price is for the main house only which sleeps 6 in two bedrooms and a queen daybed in the living room. There are two full bathrooms. The 270 sq. ft. detached studio room with a queen bed, queen sofa bed and bathroom with shower is included with 7 or more people. For week-long and month bookings, the studio is included in the price.
This spacious and cozy home with great views is located in the heart of Joshua Tree Village just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park Entrance Station. A quick 1/2 mile drive or walk and you're in the middle of Joshua Tree's small downtown of shops, eateries and galleries.
Integrated great room and kitchen floor plan gives that extra spacious feeling. Enjoy the vaulted exposed beam ceiling, natural stone and gas log fireplace, two extra large comfy sofas, and queen-size daybed. In all this there's lots of cozy comfy spaces to help you relax after a day of exploring. Large windows give panoramic views that go on forever. The east facing windows take in the magnificent desert sunrise and a view of Copper Mountain. See the JT village lights twinkle in the night or gaze up at the countless stars and see the Milky Way.
Sit out on the front porch or gaze through the huge picture window for a view over the Village of Joshua Tree. The kitchen window and back patio look out onto rugged BLM land that borders the National Park. The back patio has a gas BBQ grill and a picnic table that's ready to go for your outdoor cooking and dining.
The entire house has been uniquely remodeled for a clean modern feeling while preserving aspects of the houses' 1950's vintage. Tastefully furnished with modern vintage pieces and artwork made by local artists. The roomy kitchen is well equipped with lots of cooking supplies and new appliances- gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen table expands to seat 10 people.
Hi-speed Wifi Internet also included. The central heating and AC system heats or cools the house quickly. Linens and towels are provided. There is a high quality front load washer and dryer.
For a nearby adventure, just a short hike, is a not so well known place called Coyote Hole. There you'll find Native American petroglyphs and a small canyon with a natural spring. Coyote, bobcat, and even a mountain lion have been reported to roam this area.

I am available at all times to answer any questions or concerns and I live nearby in town so I am quick to respond to emergencies. It's my pleasure to help you with suggestions of where to hike and off the beaten path adventures known only to locals. If you want to experience something special outside of the Park feel free to ask.
Joshua Tree Village downtown is a unique locally owned and artist inspired area. Be sure to take some time to explore the many interesting shops and eateries along the Highway. There is an excellent Certified Farmers Market happening on Saturdays 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM when the downtown is at it's most lively and you can get a taste of the local community flavor.
There is a bus line running along Hwy 62 with access to Yucca Valley and 29 Palms.

If the days are unavailable before or after your reservation then I most likely will not be able to be flexible as I will have very limited time to prepare the house between guests. If you would like to extend your stay, please check my calendar for availability before contacting me.

Other Things to Note
If you have interest to explore the area outside the park I have many suggestions including a 2.5 acre sculpture site or a tour of the homestead cabins. Ask me for details.
For security, the person making the booking is required to email me a photo of their ID. Also you must complete your airbnb profile with cell phone and offline ID verification and an image.
Please leave the house in as close to the same condition you found it. I will take care of general cleaning, towels and linens. You are asked to do a basic clean up, wipe counters, wash and put away your dishes, put back any items (games, blankets, etc) in the same place they came from, put chairs back they way they were in firepit and BBQ areas. Please leave linens on beds and hang towels to dry.
Absolutely no smoking indoors.
Most of all, have a great stay.
Thomas' home is beautiful, artistic, clean, and one of the best-equipped AirBnBs I've had the pleasure to stay in. There's definitely a reason why this place has been so well-rated by guests. My family and I were delighted to stay in this comfortable home, and it is very conveniently located near Joshua Tree National Park. I would definitely highly recommend this home!
The house was exactly as it appeared in the photos. Very clean, and Thomas had even gotten the air running so it would be cool when we arrived. Due to conflicting schedules Thomas met us the next day, but he was always available via phone, and had good recommendations on what to do in the area and in the park.
We did some cooking; the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and well organized.
Lastly, the house is located very close to the park, which was awesome. Would absolutely book again!
This was the perfect place to stay for our group of 3 couples. We paid extra to use the studio, it was well worth it. We enjoyed the BBQ, outdoor dining area, and the fully-equipped kitchen. Thank you Thomas for all of your help, we really loved staying at your place.
This wasn't just a place to stay -- Thomas had brochures and guide books on Joshua Tree, directed us to awesome venues we wouldn't have been aware of otherwise, and was always readily available with any questions or advice.
The house itself was in impeccable condition, extremely clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was also very well stocked with everything you could need, including every kitchen appliance, extra bedding, toiletries, etc.
The location is beyond perfect, a minute from the main stretch of restaurants (which are delicious), coffee, yoga and just a few minutes from the Joshua Tree park entrance.
If you decide to stay here, you're guaranteed to have a great time and be very well taken care of.
The house was clean, well-organized, and had everything we needed -- including things we never thought of! Thomas was welcoming and so accommodating about things like late check-in. He provided some great suggestions about local goings-on, and could not have been more helpful. The house was extremely comfortable, and in the perfect location just down the road from the park entrance. Our stay was wonderful, thanks Thomas!
Joshua Tree is an other worldly place and this house somehow makes it even more magical. I can't beam about listing enough. Thomas was super communicative and made us feel right at home. We were a big group, (10!) but never felt cramped or like we were on top of each other. The kitchen was well equipped for us to make some gourmet group meals, and the table expanded to fit everyone just great. The beds were comfortable, the linens clean, and the board games kept us having fun the whole time. Also the house is located right on the road leading up to Joshua Tree State Park which made that visit so easy. Would definitely recommend to a friend, and can't wait to go back. Seriously, this place is even better then the photos (if you can even imagine).
Stayed 4 nights in this great home just minutes from the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. Lots of space, fully equipped and very clean. All photos in the listing are accurate. The view from the living area is amazing! Thomas provides lots of information about the area and the local businesses. Great host and great property!

About the Host, Thomas
Desert enthusiast, photographer, creative person. I am a local resident and I love the Joshua Tree area. If you have questions, I'll gladly make recommendations about the many things to enjoy in our community. During the years that I've lived in Joshua Tree I've been discovering and exploring the many lesser known and fascinating locations and history of the area known only to locals. If you are interested in the more off-the-beaten path adventure I can help you with that. Personalized tours may also be possible depending on my availability. Contact me if you have any questions.
