Lovable, semi-rustic, with extras

House - Private room · Border Ave, Joshua Tree, CA 92252, United States

The Space

A serene and safe space close to downtown Joshua Tree (2mi), located on a dirt road about 1/2mi from pavement. This place and rural neighborhood is special because of a very loving and peaceful vibration, yoga and healing opportunities, low cost, convenience to so many wonderful places and happenings and friendliness to all--human and animal.

There are several options from a large private room with its own entrance to a small bedroom and a cozy loft, shared with a cat. Also, breakfast may be added, or you may cook for yourself if you prefer. It's dog and RV friendly. Tent space is also available. There are daily yoga classes in the dome and private energy healing/integrative bodywork sessions if desired.

Prices vary from as low as $10/night in the loft or a tent to $20/night for an RV to $50 for the big bedroom or dome. Add more for cooking, served breakfast, yoga or healing. Besides the two bedrooms and loft, the dome may be rented with special arrangements for an activity. There is both an indoor full bath and a bathhouse with an outside shower that is raved about by some. This is semi-rustic: no microwave or dishwasher, but there is a washing machine, clothesline (great for desert air drying), swamp cooler and wood stove, as well as other heating/cooling options. Kitchen and bath is usually shared. Free Wi-fi service is available. Sorry, no TV but there is a new DVD player/monitor.

People who visit and stay for a retreat say they feel so welcome, peaceful, and healed in this sacred, loving space on 1.25 acres.

We are close to the downtown art and music scene, a couple of theaters, great dinner and music club venues, (Pappy and Harriett's and Willie Boy's, both about a 30 min. drive. ) Also it's very close to the Bhakti Fest and Joshua Tree Music Festivals and about 10 miles to Joshua Tree National Park entrances on Park Ave or at Indian Cove. Morongo Natural Preserve, 29 Palms Marine Base, Pioneer Town, Gubler's Orchids, The Integratron are all nearby. Not as close, but not too far (45min-1.5 hours) is the Date Festival, Coachella Music Festival, and the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Morongo Basin Transit Authority covers the Morongo Basin east (29 Palms) to west--Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, Morongo Valley and Palm Springs.

  • Paula & Buddy made our anniversary trip extra special. Her yoga classes were fun and highly recommend to try them. Her gentle kindness and loving energy permeates the place. We definitely want to go back. She's a very special lady and have much respect for her. She's a fellow Michigander like my husband. Go Blue!

    Thanks again to you, Buddy, Jennifer and the sweet elusive cat. _/|\_

  • We loved our short stay in Joshua Tree! Paula is a welcoming host, her home is adorable and I immediately felt comfortable and at peace when entering. We had a great day in the National Park and a relaxing evening at the house. The (optional) outdoor shower is an amazing way to start the day. I can't wait to visit again to join Paula for yoga in the dome. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

  • We loved our short stay with Paula and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a comfortable, quite, and clean place in Joshua Tree. Paula was very welcoming and informative. If you are interested in visiting the beautiful national park, she is only a 5-10 min drive away. Thanks Paula (and Buddy)!

  • In the middle of the dessert we stayed at this lovely rustic place of Paula. It was a short stay but the impression was very good. Nice room, very big as the bed which was very comfortably. Paula is a great host. Very helpfull and kind. We whished we could have stayed longer.

    The place is nearby Joshua Tree Parc and several kinds of restaurants and shops. Paula's suggestions were very good!

    thank you Paula for making our short stay so perfect!

  • My husband and I had a great time staying in Joshua Tree. Paula Jeane's house is perfect for us as it has a large room, king size bed, and shared living space. We especially like the yoga class that Paula Jeane leads in the dome. Joshua Tree Park is not to be missed!

  • Landing at Paula's was a blessing. Her place is so peaceful and the desert magnificent. I found Paula to be deeply spiritual, kind, thoughtful and very respectful of my need to have some quiet time. Her place is a perfect jumping off point for Joshua Tree. The room I stayed in was spacious, very clean and the bed was very comfortable; I slept for hours the first night. I would highjly recommend Paula's place and know that I will return there. Also, Buddy the dog is great. He loves carrots!
