The space

Beautiful, comfortable, well equipped and fully self-contained studio adjacent to my mid-century Joshua Tree desert time capsule, Helios House. The property sits on 15 acres of land where you can experience infinity views of the desert and the mountains; and at night you can gaze up at a million twinkling stars that feel about an arms-length away from your own outdoor relaxation space with own patio, outdoor lounge and dining area and fire pit. Experience peace, quiet, wildlife and endless star-scape in comfort.

Helios House Studio is well equipped and every detail has been thoughtfully considered. It has its own private entrance, parking, meditation platform, outdoor lounge, dining area fire pit and patio. Inside, it features a comfortable king-size bed, a spacious dining table, kitchenette with full size fridge/freezer, enamel kitchen sink, double hotplate, toaster oven and coffee-maker, cooking utensils, vintage enamel plates, beautiful glassware and everything you'll need to cook a nice meal.
There’s a fiendishly cool circular bathroom with original Mid-Century features. Expect plenty of brand new sheets, blankets and towels. The studio has air-conditioning plus a heater for those chillier desert nights. Feel free to use the 2 burner Grill. I provide gas.

You will witness wild animals in their native habitat. The cottontail rabbits, cactus wrens, lizards, desert tortoises, jackrabbits, coyotes, owls and roadrunners that make the desert their home are here, making a visit to The studio at Helios House all the more special.

Guest access
You have access to the studio and all it's amenities.

There is a 2 burner Gas BBQ with 1 side burner for your use. I provide gas.

Stargaze in the outside lounge, by the outside dining space near the BBQ or relax by the covered fire pit.

Other things to note
Se all my listings on my profile page, or here: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/users/1227949/listings

Look up joshuatreevacationhome on Instagram for a taste of desert life. Look for the profile with the pic of me picking flowers.

For photo shoots / movies and anything else similar contact me first for rate card and permission, or you will be turned away. No exceptions.

The studio is self-contained with it's own outdoor areas, parking, amenities and entrance. The main house is rented separately, and laid out and triple layer insulated so that the units will hardly notice each other. Common sense applies!

You can rent both spaces. The house will in such cases sleep 6.

Washing machine/dryer is available to guests who stay 4 nights or more.

We care about the environment. There is a triple osmosis filter, so you can safely drink the tap water. I provide multi use water bottles and glass bottles with fresh water in the fridge to minimise single use plastic waste.
I provide high quality amenities like natural shampoo and conditioner in refill bottles for the same reason.
Please recycle!

Check in is at 3 or by appointment only. I recommend arriving before sunset.

No fires due to extreme fire hazard. San Bernardino county desert areas blanket ban of all fires make these illegal. Fires will lead to instant eviction, no exceptions!

I am from Northern Norway and moved to Joshua Tree after 20 years in London. Music, art, writing, magic and friendships have taken me around the world. I would not be the first person who fell in love with the desert, sold everything and hopped on a plane. I was lucky. I found my dream properties in North Joshua Tree. I am so happy to live here! This is a fascinating place on earth! The wildlife, the views and the plant life is unlike any other, and the energy is unique. I swear it's something underfoot or in the water. I am very much looking forward to have you as a guest or share my Airbnb Experience, so you too can experience the beauty, the peace and the space in this part of the desert. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Get in touch!
