The space
We are experienced vacation rental hosts and have provided accommodations to hundreds of guests in Joshua Tree since mid 2013 with consistent high ratings. The retro-zen den has always been one of our most popular rentals.

The retro-zen den features a colorful mid-century retro styled living room with scraped hardwood flooring, and a comfortable leather chaise facing a wall-mounted 40 inch hd tv (with 300+ channels.) the contrasting minimalist zen-inspired bedroom features a king bed with memory foam mattress. The mini bonus room closet connected to the bedroom has a twin daybed. This unit has high-end 4 tonne central a/c with temperature control, so our guests can be comfortable both during the hot summer months and cooler winter months. The central location allows you to be “close to it all,” while still nicely tucked away in a quiet area away from the main freeway.

There is dedicated wifi and a large 60+ jet jacuzzi in the complex. This is a ideal home base for a couple or family.

Part of the historic 1.5 acre starlight villas estate, the retro-zen den lived a vibrant past life, as a gathering place for guests hosted by one of Joshua Tree’s most well-known and generous philanthropists. Her friends, visiting professors, and scientists studying the park’s otherworldly landscape stayed here. Now, we’ve taken care to preserve the same spirit and create a welcoming, warm, retro-inspired place for Joshua Tree vacationers to enjoy.

For all of you who are looking forward to enjoying the awe-inspiring views and rejuvenating power of Joshua Tree, we look forward to being your home away from home on your upcoming adventure here.

I grew up in NY and have always enjoyed the outdoors and the arts. I later crossed coasts and graduated from UC Berkeley. I live in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree is my favorite weekend escape. I love pretty much everything about Joshua Tree - the otherworldly scenery, the bright stars, the rustic downtown area, the sparseness, the spirit, the people, and how far far away it feels from the daily grind of the city. I've been an avid traveler my whole life and my philosophy in running vacation rentals is to bring together all the elements of what my family enjoys most as discerning customers. We have an amazing cleaning staff that has been with us from the start and does an amazing job in keeping our rentals in top shape. Cliff
