My partner Massimo and I love Joshua Tree and Taos and move between the two areas throughout the year. They are truly magical places. We are professional filmmakers and multimedia artists, love photography, dancing and travel, and we have used our creativity to create beautiful spaces for us to live and work and enjoy the outdoors - and now we would like to share it with you and your loved ones for whatever brings you to our homes be it vacation, business, or a special event. As hosts we value and respect your privacy, but we are available to help you with whatever information or assistance you need, just give us a call.
