The space

This warm, inviting, 1950’s home in Yucca Valley, California is furnished with a mid-century/rustic vibe. Owned by 2 artists, it offers 2 bedrooms with queen beds, 1 full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, slate floors, air conditioning, heating, wood burning fireplace, outdoor fire pit, cable TV, hi-speed internet with wi-fi, and beautiful views from the large covered patio. This is a great place to paint, write or create music or just spend a quiet evening gazing at the multitude of stars, enjoying the desert breeze.
On a dirt road, but not isolated.
Right on the border of Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, we are just 12 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, known for it’s world renown hiking and rock climbing. Also, within walking distance to the Joshua Tree Retreat Center (Bhakti Fest).
Kick back and relax or visit our local Farmer’s Market, health food stores, art galleries, and restaurants. Don’t forget to visit Pappy & Harriet’s for great food and live entertainment located in nearby Pioneertown, the location of many old Western movies.
Go to Desert Hot Springs for a day of natural mineral pools or Palm Springs, which is only 30 minutes away.
If you can’t leave home without your pet, we have a fenced yard and doggie door (please see house rules).
Please DO NOT SMOKE in the house.

Loved the outdoor seating area! Is comfy and has an expansive view, capturing both the sunrise and the sunset. And the indoor fireplace is cozy. Location is great, too. Close to the National Park, shopping and restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay!

We had a super nice and relaxing stay at Kim & Marian's place. It was cute, cozy, inviting, and peaceful. Loved sitting by the fire pit and doing some star gazing. All in all, a perfect place to relax and decompress!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Kim and Marian’s place. Great house with an awesome backyard, very quiet area close to Joshua Tree NP. It was a great place to unwind and relax, but still be close enough to town. Would love to come back!

Lovely little place with spectacular views. Hosts were responsive, basic cooking spices and oils on site, great supply of firewood for the outdoor pit. Highly recommend!

Lovely location on a hill with panoramic views to the East, West and South. For early risers, the sunrises are spectacular! It’s so quiet too. Great amenities with plenty of sheets, towels and blankets. The home was clean and the 50’s vibe very fun. I will return again and…

The panoramic views and seclusion was exactly what we were looking for! I personally adored the decor (younger friends that stayed with us didn't care for it). Firewood was available to us, which greatly came handy with how cold and windy it gets up there in the high desert!…
