Enhanced Clean
This Host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
This quiet rustic desert haven is a must stay for creatives and dreamers alike.

The open desert light and landscape at the foot of the north face of Mt. San Jacinto is an unforgettable experience. Modern amenities like Nest-managed HVAC and Wireless Internet meet the frontier charm of hand crafted wood beams, large whole-glass windows and stone fire places to create a comfortable and authentic stay.

At this time we cannot offer short-term rental of the Cabin.

The space
Built by the musician and East Hollywood developer John A. Van Pelt, the Desert Castle is a peaceful retreat, hand built with love, spirit, rocks and much geld.

Located in Snow Creek Village, you are only 15 minutes drive to downtown Palm Springs and 50 minutes from Joshua Tree.

The space features a central open main room with an integrated lofted bed space with stained glass windows. A well-appointed mini-fridge, high-quality convection oven, and ample kitchen supplies make the bar-style kitchen perfect for home-cooked meals.

The Master Bedroom features a northward facing panoramic window, so you can great the day with a spectacular view. The bathroom has an inset shower and bathtub to enjoy a soak in clean desert water. A concrete outdoor patio serves as an intermediary space to prep for your hike along the Pacific crest trail or just as a space to soak in the crisp high-desert air.
