Yes, The Cowboy Pool is open for 2020! Woohoo! You'll receive instructions upon check in on how to fill and empty it!

White Moon Ranch is located in rural Joshua Tree. Nestled near government land, you'll enjoy expansive desert views to the east and west in the quiet heart of rural living. We've hand designed this space, up cycling treasures found on property, bringing inside natural elements and decor. White Moon Ranch is a unique blend of rural Joshua Tree, modern clean Scandinavian design and COZY! Nearly all the lights in the house have dimmers and Edison light filament for you to create amazing evening ambiance. Our kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking oils and dishes. Every room is insulated, has a locking door, and brand new modern heating & cooling units for your comfort! If your looking for a downtown location or if the dates you want here are booked, we would recommend our sister property: White Cactus House (airbnb.com/h/whitecactushouse) which is in the heart of Downtown Joshua Tree, two small blocks from Joshua Tree Saloon (sleeps four).

This home was originally build in 1955 as a Homesteader Cabin, 1.5 miles down a dirt road you'll be met with incredible views to the east and west, quiet, recharging landscapes await you. Magic, large harvest moons and crazy amazing stars fill the night skies. Catch butterscotch sunrises, sip drip coffee or plunge in the cowboy pool to cool off. (Closed November - March). Wildlife is abundant here, bunnies, hares, hawks and roadrunners stealing across the desert dunes. Periwinkle and pink sunsets will paint the sky to give the desert it's famous 'golden hour' glow while you spin records by our mid century fireplace.

A private upcycled 18 hole miniature golf course inspired by Noah Purifoy museum and two desert bowling lanes we created are yours to laugh and make memories playing. Create your own 5 star meal in our giant fully stocked kitchen and dine using our indoor or outdoor dining room. Whisper stories while you lounge around the fire pit, listen to birds chirp and play in giant creosote bushes, soak or splash in the cowboy tub to cool off. Grab our book on stars and study constellations brighter then you've seen in years.

*Note the garage suite is fully insulated, with locking doors and it's own brand new AC / heating unit! You'll love it!

The main house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The third bedrooms is detached with a master suite about 10 steps / feet from the main house. Each bedroom and the master suite has it's own HVAC to temperature control to the degree how much ice cold AC or toasty warm heat you'd like. This set up works well for a group of friends, three couples, or families.

When the weather is nice, the entire south side of the master garage suite can open giving the space a really amazing indoor / outdoor vibe! (It's my favorite place at the ranch!) There are external string lights around the entire house and garage which are on a dimmer for you to brighten, create mood lighting or turn off. The house has curated light fixtures also entirely on dimmers which means you can curate serious mood lighting in nearly every room! Spin an old jazz record, pour yourself a drink from our vintage inspired bar cart while you bask in ambiance and an ode to simpler times. Our shower has a large window gazing east to partake in some incredible shower views! But, if you prefer privacy, there is a pull down shade - do whatever makes your experience feel good!

Where you’ll be

Twentynine Palms, California, United States

If you're looking for wide open spaces, desert views, that rural JT vibe and 5 acres of open SPACE to call your own... this is the place! Nestled on the edge of a rural neighborhood with 5 acre lots, you'll love the open feel, open skies and the starry views from the ranch. Total "off grid" feels (1.5 miles down a dirt road) while being completely "on grid" with ALL the modern amenities! White Moon Ranch is located 26 minutes from Joshua Tree Village and 23 minutes from National Park's EAST Oasis entrance. (Insider Tip: Beat those long JTNP lines by going in the EAST entrance! The west entrance is an additional 20 minutes away and you'll likely be in traffic the last few miles to the park.) Nestled near government land, you'll see wildlife and experience pink sunrises and sunsets in the peaceful quiet only the desert experience can bring. Look for 2 of our favorite wildlife buddies, "Speedy" and "Mohawk" -a pair of roadrunners who frequent the property while hunting bugs and lizards.
