This is a great space, room enough for the two of us and our two pups. The record player, board games, and jacuzzi meant we never looked at our phones or worried about the outside world. The guest house has a great view, it's own jacuzzi, and barbecue. This is a smaller house close to a larger home. The location is very close to Joshua Tree National Park and 15 mins to Pioneer Town. We loved our time here.

Mark and Laura are excellent hosts with an amazing guest home. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud, extremely clean and very close to Joshua Tree and any other amenities you might need. I only wish we could have stayed more than one night. They were communicative so we knew if we needed anything they were there to help. Can't recommend it enough!

Perfect place! Well done and comfortable. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Close to the park, climbing, mountain biking and all the area has to offer. Laura and Marc were great hosts and let me bring my dog too :)

Can't beat a hot tub overlooking the mountains after hiking in the national park all day. Mark's guesthouse was great. Furnishings are definitely quirky, which may not be everyone's style, but we liked it. Stereo and record collection were a huge plus.

Mark and Laura's place was absolutely idyllic. It was stylish yet inviting and the fireplace was just lovely during the cooler desert nights. Everything was well considered and we had a great stay.

This was my third time staying at one of Mark and Laura's properties. As usual, the place was clean and beautifully decorated. Mark and Laura were incredibly friendly and responsive. Thanks for another great stay!
