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.

PERFECT! Everything was wonderful! So comfortable with so many thoughtful details taken care of. Large rooms with a wonderful of the desert and surrounding mountains, amply outfitted kitchen, cozy fireplace, comfortable beds and vintage furniture. We enjoyed the fun character of the house and grounds peppered with imaginative art, surprises and humor. We felt lucky to be able to enjoy the classic Eames chaise lounge and other vintage kitsch. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Wonderful house, wonderful host, wonderful time... From my initial inquiry, to the booking, Thomas was able to answer every possible question about the reservation process and even offer a little how-to guidance to this airbnb rookie.
The house and guesthouse were the perfect size -- accommodating all of our guests (we booked the max number of peeps), offering a full kitchen (well stocked with pots, pans, knives, etc), and plenty of space to gather all together or to wander off and relax on your own for a bit.
Horseshoes between desert showers and boardgames helped passed the time while the area received some much needed rain and the location allowed for easy park access when the weather let up.
I cannot recommend this place enough!
This house was the perfect Joshua Tree house! The location was fantastic and the house was very clean. We celebrated my 30th birthday here and I couldn't have imagined a better birthday weekend. Thomas (the host) was extremely responsive and accomodating. He undoubtedly goes the extra mile to make sure his guests feel comfortable and enjoy their stay. You will not be disappointed!
The decor of the house was really fun and interesting and will give you a good feeling of the essence of the town of Joshua Tree. Everyone was intrigued by the various art pieces and fun items throughout the house.
When we stayed here we went hiking all day in Joshua tree then had this beautiful house to return to in the evening for a fun BBQ. We have camped in Joshua Tree many times, but it was so nice to have a house to return to where we could sit around the fire, play games and relax after a long day of hiking.
Thank you Thomas for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable!
The space was bigger than expected and tastefully decorated, not to mention very clean.
Thank you, Thomas, for providing the perfect space for east coast, west coast family reunion, where much love and joy was experienced in the perfect setting!
What can I say that hasn't been said?! The house is well designed, and the area is sublime. If you love the desert, and enjoy the mid-century modern aesthetic...look no further! Thomas clearly knows what he is doing when it comes to providing a comfortable stay. The kitchen is well stocked, there is firewood near the outdoor fireplace, and just about everything else you could ask for is there too. We will definitely be coming back here in the future.
What a great house in the desert! We had a great stay with my 5 year old daughter who loved the yard with all the cool lost things, sculptures and the old typewriter. We saw bunnies and quail but missed Roscoe the roadrunner. The house was very clean and the kitchen well stocked with all we needed to cook at home. What a great location close to the park entrance and the joshua tree cafe's and stores but quiet and with such wonderful light. We hope to stay again soon.
Yes, yes, yes.
Incredible house for a great value. The living room has an amazing view of the surrounding area, a huge front porch, and there's a fire place out back and a grill. Plenty of space and a remarkably well stocked kitchen in terms of cooking implements -- I especially appreciated that the cooking knives were decent, which in my experience is unusual in house rentals. The house is way closer to grocery stores and anything else you'd need than I thought it would be. Thomas was very easy to deal with, no drama whatsoever. Very quick to reply to texts, and he even let us in early! Didn't flinch at all when I told him I was bringing 10 people. We were there for a staff retreat and there was plenty of space for all.
I'd recommend this place to anyone at all, and hope I'll get the chance to stay again!
We had a great time at Thomas's mid-century modern in Joshua Tree! The location was brilliant for very easy access to the National Park for hiking AND we loved just hanging at the house. It fit our group of 10 women perfectly and we spent a lot of time just sitting by the fire. Everyone said they would be psyched to rent this house again. In addition Thomas was super responsive and the communication was great. He was proactive sending directions, door code, etc.
This house is fantastic! Very spacious and beautifully decorated. Thomas is a wonderful hosts and makes sure everything runs smoothly. You are close to the park as well as Downtown Joshua tree but it's very quiet and relaxing to stay at the house.
Can't wait to go back!
My family ( two adults, 2 kids under 6) stayed at Thomas' Joshua Tree house for two nights, while visiting from Australia, and we absolutely loved it! The place was just as described, if anything the photos don't do it justice. The house is just lovely, spacious and beautifully decorated. Communication with Thomas was easy, and all the guides and info about the local area he provided were really helpful. We especially appreciated his willingness to come over and help us out when we couldn't get the gas fireplace working (pilot light had gone out!). I wished we could have stayed longer, and hope to come back again.
