Classic mid-century bungalow with desert rat vibe. Eco-friendly remodel: Saltillo tile, Marmoleum, cork flooring, non-VOC paint. Eclectic mix of modernism and antiques. Private cactus garden, fire pit, outdoor shower. Desert living with contemporary comforts: mini-split heat and A/C, full kitchen gear, down comforters for winter nights.

The space
One secluded bedroom looking out at cactus garden. We're fussy about mattresses; ours is high-quality latex, both purchased from a San Diego firm that donates to a Mexican orphanage. Master bedroom has natural cork flooring with Mexican rug, ample closet space, and luggage rack. Kitchen and bathroom floors are all-natural Marmoleum. Organic cotton sheets, handmade coverlets in the summer, down comforters for winter. (Yes, Etsy addict!) Fully appointed kitchen: microwave, juice squeezer, stainless pots and pans, French press and electric coffee maker. Bathroom features a tile shower stall with supplied with soap, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer. Desert photography, antique zoology prints, and rare posters from Western environmental history. Fenced backyard with outdoor shower, gas grill, firepit and a national park view. Easy moonlit walk to 29 Palms Inn with its Big Sur vibe for cocktails and dinner, museum, art gallery, and casino nearby.
