The property is located on a well-maintained dirt road in a relatively sparsely populated neighborhood just a half mile away from the village of Joshua Tree. Although just 2 hours drive from Los Angeles you will find Joshua Tree to be worlds away. Joshua Tree is a beautiful area that attracts artists and musicians and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world to make it their home. The community actively supports the arts and tourism and environmental issues. Visitors will find the locals to be an extremely interesting and friendly lot. The west entrance to the amazing 800,000 acre Joshua Tree National Park is just a couple miles away and the property features views of the mountains in the park. There are excellent running and hiking trails outside of the park just a short walk from the property.
Public transportation options are limited in the area but the village of Joshua Tree is just a half mile walk.

Although we often have firewood available for fireplaces and the fire pit we ask our guests to contribute firewood or make a donation for firewood that they use during their stay.
Great location near the park. The guest house it located on a small dirt road just off 62. The place is only 1 mile away from the Joshua Tree Visitors Center. Really close to some good food and great coffee.
We were welcomed by Mark in person, who showed us around, answered our few questions and then left us to our peace & quiet in the guesthouse. The place was perfect for our needs. Super private, all of the amenities as advertised, plus fun little decor and touches everywhere. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and even at sunrise. We used the hammocks, the record player, the fireplace and even the games. The kitchen was stocked with every implement we needed and even ice, spices, etc. Oh, and the bed was comfy. Not sure what else we could've needed. Our only complaint was not enough time. Thank you!
We had a great time in the guest house. It absolutely lived up to the description. I called Mark when we arrived, and he walked through the details of the property--nothing complicated. The guest house is clean and comfortable. It faces away from the main house, so even though there were other guests on the property we felt like we were the only people there.
Mark meet us at the property and showed us where everything was and how the hot tub worked.
I really liked the single adjustable bed to sleep with my legs up each night after 3 long days running and hiking in the park.
The hot tub was perfect, it is set away from the house in the desert landscape with a great view of the mountains in the daylight and a view of the lights of town and the stars at night.
Mark was there when we arrived and is just lovely. We felt right at home, understood everything immediately and were happy to find everything as "advertised." The place itself was magical - all sorts of knick-nacks and cool stuff plus a view to die for. And clean and convenient and comfortable ... the list goes on. If I return to Joshua Tree - I hope to stay here again.
My boyfriend and I absolutely LOVED Laura and Mark's Modern Guest House in Joshua Tree!
The house was comfortable, clean, and very well decorated with a lot of fun vintage items to look at. We especially loved the vinyl collection, the fire place, and the hot tub!
It's conveniently located just minutes from the Joshua Tree park entrance. There was a binder full of recommendations of things to do, places to eat, etc., which was very useful.
I would definitely want to stay here again if I plan another visit to Joshua Tree. Thanks to Mark and Laura for a wonderful, welcoming stay!
We had a great time at the Guest House. Everything was there that we needed. The view was amazing. The jacuzzi was wonderful. We'll be back!

Mark and Laura live and work in Los Angeles and relax in Johsua Tree whenever possible. Laura is a yoga teacher and owns a yoga studio in Glendale and Mark is a B2B sales engineer. When we are not working we love scouring estate sales and garage sales for great mid century finds. Our home in Joshua Tree features some of our favorite finds that we can't wait to share with you!
