Description

The Space

A peaceful guesthouse with a private hot tub and garden, nestled against hills in the Joshua Tree highlands neighborhood. Designed for light, rest and privacy, 5 minutes from the village and the entrance to the stunning Joshua Tree National Park.


The Casita is a cool, clean, spacious new Spanish-style building, full of light and beautiful views. It has it's own hot tub and patio in front, and walled garden in back.

It is furnished simply, with an international aesthetic, and ease and comfort in mind. It sleeps up to four adults (one queen sized bed, one queen pull out sofa) and has a full bath with tub and shower, a compact kitchen, and ample storage.

A few minutes walk down the dirt road leads you to the gorgeous desert trails of the Joshua Tree Highlands preserve, filled with wildlife, rock formations and sweeping views across the valley. The famous desert sunsets can be taken in from the private hot tub and patio.

Your hosts are Jenny, an herbalist who has been a part of the community for 13 years, and her partner Myshkin, a musician new to Joshua Tree. The space comes stocked with organic coffee, teas, body care products and gourmet chocolate from Jenny's apothecary, Grateful Desert Herb Shoppe & EcoMarket. There is an eclectic library of books, movies and music, a dvd player (no tv reception) , and a cd / cassette / record player. We always use all natural cleaning products and detergents without heavy perfumes.

The guesthouse is a one-room studio apartment style space, separate from but near to the property's main house, built for sonic and visual (website hidden) facilities include an outdoor grill, a fridge, two burner range, microwave, toaster-oven and electric-kettle, dishes and cooking gear. If there is anything you should need to borrow, please feel free to ask us.

Casita de la Luna is queer friendly, a peaceful, family space. A stay at the casita offers you an insider's connection to the unique local culture of the arts and healing hideout that is Joshua Tree. We have a menu of services and contact info for the best area bodyworkers and other teachers and healers, and plenty of suggestions for accessing all the quirky art and culture the area has to offer.

If there is anything you should need to borrow, for cooking or whatever, please feel free to ask us.

We like to greet guests on arrival and make sure all looks good to you, but consider your privacy paramount to an enjoyable stay, and aim to stay out of your way! We are just next door though, and available to sort out any questions or issues.

The Joshua Tree Highlands neighborhood climbs up the mountains on the south side of town, bordered on the south and west by The Highlands Nature Preserve, and the east by road out to the national park. The terrain is thick with desert vegetation, the houses are far apart, and the views are incredible, sweeping across the valley to the north, and into the park on the east. The neighborhood has a night sky ordinance that asks folks to keep outdoor lights to a minimum, so the stars can work their magic.

As a guest at The Casita you are supporting our family, and our art and healing practices. We look forward to meeting you and being a sweet part of your desert experience. Come rest, rejuvenate and get inspired!

Joshua Tree, California, United States · Member since July 2013

Jenny is a local herbalist and owner of the apothecary Grateful Desert Herb Shoppe & EcoMarket. Joshua Tree has been her home for the past 13 years, where she has fallen in love with the landscape and its progressive and quirky inhabitants. She is an RN and herbalist and has the honor of serving this incredible community with her practice, which includes therapeutic herbalism, aromatherapy and guidance on leading a holistic and healthy lifestyle.

Myshkin is a songwriter, composer and touring musician. For the past 20 years, she has made her living on the road, being gifted with more sweet hospitality than she could ever repay. She still loves traveling, soaking in new cultures and aesthetics, and has lived all over the US, from Indiana to New Mexico to New Orleans to Oregon, and now the amazing high desert artists' hideout of Joshua Tree.

We invite you to help us support our art and healing practices by being our guest at Casita de la Luna.
