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.

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.

Beautiful house. Very functional. Cool gramaphone and record collection. Hot tub was amazing. Definitely recommend a stay here.
We had an amazing time here! This was our first time in Joshua Tree, and this spot was in a perfect location. Loved the hot tub, fire pit and peace and serenity of the property. Will definitely be back here in the future!!
Mark and Laura are Airbnb pros. This is a small but great space and is full of all the basics. The views from the property are fantastic and can be enjoyed from the large front windows, the patios, the jacuzzi and the hammocks. Complete with a BBQ and small kitchen stove, we cooked great meals and enjoyed eating on the patio as well. Highly recommend this as an airbnb rental to anyone that loves Joshua Tree but wants a city interior space. Enjoy!
Really great house. This is our first time in Joshua tree but this place make us the most unforgettable travel experience ! The hottub is amazing and the view is unbeatable. Perfect for stargazing! Mark is happy to help all the time. great host and great house and best getaway trip.
This guest house was perfect! Mid century desert vibes and detail were spot on. Great vinyl, jacuzzi, hammocks, grill and outdoor dining made our weekend exactly what we were looking for. They have put a lot of care into the details and it shows! Would definitely come back
Laura & Mark's home was exactly what we needed for a relaxing getaway. Quiet, perfectly sized and well-appointed. The photos are perfect representations of what you can expect. It got up to 104 outside during our stay and the a/c kept things very comfortable inside.
We were close to everything we needed. When you first drive up, you'll see it's in a bit of a "neighborhood" of large parcels. Don't fear: the most we heard from adjacent properties were a couple of dogs barking in the distance at their feeding time and a single car driving down the road. Otherwise, we felt we had the hill to ourselves.
Thanks for a great stay. We hope to be back soon!
My boyfriend and I have stayed at Marks place twice now and it's been such an incredible place and I recommend this relaxing abode for everyone to enjoy!
Even though we didn't see mark this time, he was easily reachable by phone and text. We will definitely be coming back!
