Kim and Marian have created a wonderfully comfortable place which is thoughtfully stocked with real art. There are no posters here! We really appreciated the care and personality of the place - we felt at home for three nights.
The layout of the place is great - private enough even for those who may be sharing the place. The bedrooms are large, the beds comfy and with good linens. The bathroom and tub/.shower is clean and new and nicely designed. The kitchen is well-stocked and bottled water is provided. Firewood is provided also. The overall decor is simple good taste which is entirely to ouir liking.
The house is situated on top of a small hill with a great view of town from a huge covered patio furcnished with three sofas. The photos really do not show how nice this is. There are neighbours nearby but over the long weekend we never saw another person, just a few vehicles passing along the road.
This place was perfect for our purposes and we would certainly return. Really could not ask for more given the location, decor and amenities. Additionally, Kim and Marian were very responsive to the questions we had which made the whole process really smooth. They are honest and straightforward.
This is exactly the sort of place that would make us return to airbnb to search out great spots again.
We loved it. This place was a great find on AirBnB. It was quiet, clean, decorated very nicely, and had excellent amenities. The kitchen was stocked with essential spices and utensils and we loved the outdoor couches. Thanks for a great experience!
What excellent style! This little desert nook was the perfect spot for three friends, one small pup, and I to post up for a weekend getaway. Three of us are photographers and found plenty of incredibly inspiring surroundings, our fourth is an interior designer who couldn't get enough of the mid-century and artsy stores around town. Kim and Marian were very kind and quickly responsive, and the home was comfy & stylish. Definitely recommend staying here for a quite, artsy escape.
The Desert Artist Escape was the perfect place for a stay in the Joshua Tree area. It was centrally located and just minutes from the park as well as Pioneertown. The house was quite comfortable for an extended stay. The beds were comfortable and the internet access was great. We also enjoyed the backyard area.Thank you Kim and Marian for the little extras like the bottled water. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Desert Artist Escape. The house had an amazing view, extremely comfortable beds, fully-stocked kitchen, and an amazing outdoor seating area. Marian & Kim were great communicators, and checking-in and out was so easy and simple, I didn't think it was possible. High recommend this air BNB to anyone that wants to relax, enjoy the desert, and be within 5 minutes of driving to Joshua Tree!
My husband and I were looking for a quiet place in the desert that wasn't too isolated, so that we could go out to dinner when we wanted to. Kim and Marian's place was perfect. Their home is very comfortable, inside and out, and it was a lovely home base for our exploration of Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, and the Salton Sea. We would recommend it to anyone.
What a lovely hideaway! The house was immaculate when we arrived, just tucked away off the main road from Yucca Valley and perfectly situated between the park and the shops on CA 62. We made use of the beautiful fire pit outside overlooking the mountains and the distant village lights. As a bonus, the beds were ultra comfy and great water pressure in the shower. So highly recommended-- the spot is even more beautiful than the pictures convey (I mean this as a compliment). Thank you for a wonderful stay!! We would return in a heartbeat.
We really enjoyed our stay ! The outdoor view is amazing...what a treat for us to be able to have our breakfast outside !!! We really would have loved to stay more...it was too short !
Starting with a great communication experience with Kim/ Marian. Always fast to respond with useful information. Their house was perfect! From the comfortable beds to the beautiful design of the house. It felt like home. Highly recommended!
We had a spectacular weekend at Kim & Marian's desert home. The home is well-appointed and tastefully decorated. If you're looking to get away and unwind without completely "cutting the cord", this is the perfect place to stay. It's incredibly quiet and peaceful (we maybe heard 5 cars drive by during the entire weekend), but the house also has cable TV and speedy internet if you want some nighttime entertainment. The property is beautiful with a big fenced-in backyard and amazing desert views. Kim & Marian are communicative and incredibly sweet. We'll definitely be back!
