Stay under the stars in the desert but be just 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs! 900+ sq' studio guest house on five acres with gorgeous desert and mountain views. Comfortably fits two with a real queen bed, bathroom with shower, kitchenette.

The space
We strive to live a sustainable life while still enjoying life's little luxuries. Our main house and multiple features around the property were built with strawbales, and other waste materials. The guest house was built with mostly salvaged and recycled materials. The guest house is a 900+ square foot studio with private access from the driveway. You have an actual queen bed - not an inflatable mattress. The bath is a 3/4 bath with a huge shower. The living space has a large entertainment center with a 55" TV. The sound system will make you feel like you are right in the middle of the action. Relax in the overstuffed chair while you read a book or listen to the vintage sound system. If you are a music lover or audiophile, you'll feel right at home here. Musician friendly, instruments available - be inspired for your next album or even record in the beauty and quiet of the desert! The kitchenette is fully stocked and has everything you need to prepare simple meals plus there is an outdoor grill. The property is five acres with hiking, horseback riding, and motorcycle trails leading off the property. Stargazers are not to be left out, we have super dark skies, perfect for stargazing with great views of the night sky with the naked eye. Bring your telescope or use ours for an even more breathtaking view. You can welcome the day watching the sun come up over the hills behind the house while practicing your favorite yoga pose and end the day enjoying the sunset over the San Jacinto mountains sitting at the firepit with your favorite drink.
*COVID-19
In order to keep us all as safe as possible, we are changing some of the ways we do things and are asking some things from you as well.
We will not be accepting guests 24 hours before or after your stay
We will coordinate check-in via AirBnB messenger
While we love visiting with our guests, we will only be interacting with you outside and will be practicing physical distancing.
We are not allowing any outside guests at this time
As well as our regular cleaning we are using bleach to disinfect all high touch areas
Most cities in the valley require masks. Please be prepared.
Since we are not walking you through checking in, we have tried to put very clear directions on everything. But if you have a question, please ask!
We will be asking some additional screening questions prior to accepting your reservation.

Guest access
Both the main house and guest house share the backyard and pool with two dogs.

Other things to note
*Please note we are NOT in Joshua Tree. We are about 40 minutes from the main park entrance. We are closer to Palm Springs - about 20 minutes to downtown Palm Springs.
*We personally check in all guests. To expedite your request, please note the time you would like to arrive. Earliest check-in is 3:00 pm with the latest 8:00 pm on weekdays. Weekends we can do later check-ins.
*11/28/2018 We regret we are no longer able to offer usage of the indoor fireplace due to misuse by guests. The firepit is still available but please be safe and conscientious.
*1/25/2019 The pool is full and ready for you to swim! Thank you for your patience during this renovation. We're excited to share our new saltwater pool with you.

Desert Hot Springs, California, United States

Sky Valley is a unincorporated rural area just north of Palm Springs. It is an old area started from the homesteaders building the underground canal from the Colorado River to Riverside. You have a mix of properties from "old desert rats", "snowbirds", horse ranches, nurseries and everything in between.

I live just outside of Palm Springs, CA with Mark, my husband of almost 30 years. Our two kids are grown - our son lives in Hawaii and our daughter in Oceanside. When I'm not working on our property, I volunteer - I'm the Special Events Coordinator for the Desert Horticultural Society and also the Garden Coordinator for Palm Spring High School. I have varied interests from hiking to concerts. I absolutely love living here in our desert paradise! We have all this beauty and tranquility surrounding us and yet we are two hours away from whatever we want to do - beaches, L.A., mountains, lake, Mexico, etc. What more could you ask for?
