The Off-grid itHouse brings together raw industrial aesthetics with the tactics of green design to forge a new home in the sunbaked wilds of the California high desert.

The space
The Off-grid itHouse is an architecturally significant house, recently noted by Dwell as one of the 'Best Homes in America' and in the Los Angeles Times as one of the best houses of all time in Southern California. The Off-grid itHouse is one of 10 IT Houses built in California, which have received much acclaim such as the Western Home award sponsored by Sunset magazine. Also noted as one of the top 10 airbnb rentals worldwide. This is the prototype for the pre-engineered system known as the IT House.

The house is 100% off-grid, powered by solar panels for energy and hot water, and is located in a pristine remote valley in the beautiful California high desert. The house observes key green principals of smaller footprint, minimal disturbance to the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, use of renewable resources, and living simply and minimally.

The setting of the house is remote and serene, a quiet refuge from everything, free from distractions. Amazing views and vistas in all directions.

Perfect for design or green aficionados, writers or those needing a secluded quiet getaway.

Guest access
Intentionally there is no television and only satellite wifi for emergency communication so that one can truly experience being in a place of extreme natural beauty, and take note of the play of light and shadow, and other natural phenomena.

The house is 100% off grid with no municipal services. All the water is brought to the site and powered by the sun. Please expect that due to the off grid nature of the home you should be prepared that power may not always be available. Please plan meals to not use excessive energy.

The house has two new Casper mattresses and pillows for ultimate comfort and relaxation during your stay (queen and king).

It is recommended that guests arrive before sundown in order to find the house. The house is in a remote location.

Other things to note
Holiday weekend 3 day minimum applies to Presidents Day weekend, Valentines Day, Memorial Day Weekend, Independence Day weekend, Labor Day Weekend, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
WE DO NOT ALLOW EVENTS OR SHOOTS OF ANY KIND TO BE BOOKED THROUGH AIRBNB. WE ARE NO LONGER ALLOWING WEDDINGS. FOR INQUIRIES BEYOND VACATION RENTAL PLEASE CONTACT LOCATIONS UNLIMITED.
