A Desert Dream! Looking for the perfect escape from the city? Built from the ground up, this one-of-a-kind luxury designer home was featured in Architectural Digest this year. Jewel Crest is a unique & inclusive 2bed/1bath desert getaway centrally located on the border of Joshua Tree & Yucca Valley. Stay here if you want the best of both worlds: tranquility & convenience. Relax and recharge on 5 quiet acres of breathtaking desert landscape + vista views, while being just 10 mins to downtown JT!

Is it possible to do a desert home without overdoing the "desert" decor? Yes, yes it is. This luxury new construction home was designed to be different than every other modern box or ranch home for rent in this region. Jewel Crest Joshua Tree is a 2-bedroom loft with an architecturally stunning, yet simple Scandinavian frame that boasts extraordinary 20-ft vaulted ceilings and a 12-ft spiral staircase with solid oak treads.

If you are looking for a true indoor-outdoor experience, this place is for you. Chillax while being mesmerized by endless views of the outside from the comfort of the couch or dining table. This unique home is light-filled without the feeling of being in a fishbowl unable to escape from the harsh desert sun. There are two 10-foot walls of windows, one of which doubles as a bifold sliding door that completely opens to a 400-square foot covered patio. Cook a meal in our fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, blender, food processor, quality knives, olive oil, salt/pep, spices, tea kettle, coffee maker, wine opener, and cookware) and enjoy it on the outdoor farm table. After eating, watch a movie on the outdoor couch via a Bluetooth movie projector and screen. There is an outdoor fireplace AND a 4-burner propane BBQ grill available for you too (not seen in photos but they are both present).

Once you finish your outdoor meal and movie, have a soak in the hot tub while staring at the stars (the views of the Milky Way are incredible). If you are staying during the warmer months, take a dip in our professionally maintained cowboy tin pool (May-October).

In terms of design, this home leans in on a minimalist boho-scandi theme. Every detail was well thought out (might I even say overanalyzed) and hand-picked by me. The house is full of designer furniture from stores like Interior Define, Article, and Albany Park. Each room in the home includes a variety of live plants because #plantsarelife. If you love design, you'll get a kick out of the bathroom, which features 8-feet of gorgeous pink, red, and white Fireclay tile with brass finishes (for the love of god, please do not dye your hair here lol).

Catch up on sleep in our cozy bedding. If you are a stickler for a good mattress (my kinda people), then you'll be in heaven with our hotel quality Allswell Luxe Hybrid Mattress and 100% cotton sheets. Past guests have commented that the mattresses are more comfortable than what they have at home.

If you enjoy being active on vacation (hey, I'm not judging), I've included some workout weights, kettlebells, and yoga mats on the back patio for your convince. If you carry stress in your back, I threw in my absolute favorite portable heating/kneading back and neck massager shawl to help you work out the tension (located in the throw blanket basket next to the couch). There are also various card and board games in the upstairs closet, including cards, spouseology, and black card revoked. If you are too worn out for a game, cuddle up on the comfortable couch and watch TV or a movie (Netflix and Apple TV provided) via Smart TV.

If you are enjoying your stay, please tag me at @jewelcrestjoshuatree on any photos or videos you take.

Where you’ll be

Yucca Valley, California, United States

Jewel Crest is located in a safe, rural neighborhood where each lot has an average of 2.5 to 10 acres. While the property is private, and you have 5 serene acres of land to explore with dozens of native Joshua Trees, you are not isolated. There are neighbors to the right (about 600 feet away) and across the street (also about 600 feet). There are no neighbors to the left or behind the property, which is why it has such amazing unobstructed views. For those wondering if you need an SUV to get here, the answer is no. I chose this exact location because of its easy access to the main, paved road (Aberdeen). While Jewel Crest is on a dirt road, the dirt is firm and you are only driving on it for about 60 seconds.

There is also a very handy Mesa Mart about 3 minutes away from the property, where you can get everything from beverages to tampons, to scissors to snacks, and a bunch of other items.

Hi, I’m Jess (she/her). I’m a Registered Dietitian by day and a real estate and design junkie by night. In 2020, I did something a little crazy and bought a 5-acre lot in Joshua Tree. Over the course of the past year, I build a gorgeous 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom lofted cottage that’s full of light, color, and, most importantly, PLANTS. From the structure to the finishes, to the siding, to the lighting, I love everything about homes and am fascinated by the design and construction process. I always say that if I wasn’t a dietitian I would want to be a general contractor. The space was completed in 2021 and is now open for YOU to enjoy as a short term rental! I hope you love it as much as I do. Take a look at the journey @jewelcrestjoshuatree
