The space
A recently remodeled, former homesteader cabin, this three bedroom two bath home is the perfect place for a group of friends looking for sacred space for some quality time, creative projects, or digital detoxing.

Cielito Lindo Retreat sits on a special piece of land within walking distance of downtown Joshua Tree (i.e. the Natural Sisters Cafe, Joshua Tree Roasting Company, the National Park Visitor Center, and the Joshua Tree Saloon), while bordering the Coyote Hole Conservation Area, a protected and less-visited slice of wildland home to coyotes, petroglyphs, and incredible boulder canyons waiting to be explored by you. Just ten minutes by car down the road, and you’re at the gateway to the National Park.

Our home has three bedrooms, each with memory foam mattresses (Casper mattress in the Master) and cozy bedding. Each room is equipped with mini-split units for heating and air conditioning, so regardless of what’s happening outside, you can be comfortable on the inside.

A She-Cave with a pull out couch can be used as a fourth bedroom - or a place to watch whatever your heart desires on a big screen TV. While we’re huge fans of enjoying the great outdoors, sometimes a day of hiking and sunset hot tub soaking is best capped up with Netflix and popcorn on the couch.

The home has two full bathrooms - both with a white-cement, walk-in shower. The en-suite master bathroom also has a full-size tub, with a perfect view of the National Park mountain line and southern sky out an oversized window.

A state of the art kitchen and mid-century dining room are the perfect place to cook up big brunches or dinners after exploring the park. Dine outside in the al fresco table that seats up to 16.

A sitting room with plush couches is the perfect place for morning coffee as the sun rises in the landscape window at back.

Our home is equipped with all of the finest creature comforts - a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, a bar cart, a bookshelf of books and games, and blazing fast wifi.

A hot tub sunken into an infinity deck looks out into Coyote Hole, and is the perfect place to watch the sunset, the moon rise, or the Milky Way flicker on. Take an outdoor shower - with hot or cold water - before, during, or after your tubbing.

Our home is on Coyote Hole, a quiet conservation area that acts as a wildlife corridor for coyotes, jackrabbits, and other wildlife. WIthin 10 minutes walking out the back door, you can find 1,500-year-old petroglyphs, on the level of what you would see miles deep into the National Park. Local legend is that this area served as a Native American children’s hospital, evidenced with stones and offerings found from tribal communities around the US.

The home has held team retreats, birthday parties, and larger format events. Let’s talk!

Hi! I’m Carla, an experience designer and social impact strategist living between Los Angeles (Venice to be exact) and Joshua Tree, CA.

I started visiting the Mojave Desert and the Southwest when I moved to Southern California at the ripe young age of 21, and finally made the leap to buy and remodel a beautiful home on three acres adjacent to Coyote Hole Conservation Area in 2015. It has been a labor of love, and the more time I spent on this land and in this home, the more stoked I get.

I would love to share this little piece of paradise with you and yours.

This place has been - and I’m now opening it up to you to enjoy the stars, the wind, the views, the hot tub and outdoor shower, the dreamy kitchen and cozy beds, and the petroglyph walk a few minutes out the back door by foot.
