Enjoy a relaxing retreat in a cozy South Joshua Tree Guest House. The Guest House is open and airy 1000 square foot studio on a private 4 acre gated property with beautiful north facing sunset views.

The living room area has a super comfy down-filled mid century couch and ottoman in front of the fireplace.

Enjoy our cute newly added kitchen fully stocked with plates, flatware, glassware and starters for you meals and a charcoal barbeque grill outside.

There is a private patio with with table and chairs and a fire pit that faces north and features beautiful views especially for star gazing at night! We just installed a Jacuzzi J-LXL hot tub with lounge seat on a slab just a few steps off the patio. The location is private and sits amongst Joshua Trees and desert flora and offers panoramic views of the sunset, surrounding mountains, city lights, and amazing stars at night. There are 2 hammocks for lounging under a large shade tree next to the carport where you can park your car under cover.

  • Mark was a fantastic host! I booked Mark's guest house for a relaxing weekend for me and my girlfriend. Mark had all the info we needed in a binder he provided us in the house with things to do, places to go and details about the stay. Not only that, Mark was kind enough to spend several minutes on the phone upon our arrival to give us info about the guest house and a more detail description of the places to go around Joshua Tree. Location was great, as everything from bars, restaurants, antique shops and the national park were all within close driving distances. As for the house itself, it was well kept and had everything you could possibly need. I will definitely book with Mark again for future stays in Joshua Tree.

  • Mark & Laura were exemplary hosts and their guest house is truly exquisite!! Mark was fantastic at keeping in touch & ensuring that we had all of the information we required prior to arrival. The guest house is very private and clean with great facilities. Lying in the hammocks was so peaceful and tranquil and the hot tub was divine! We will definitely be returning & can not wait for our next visit already :-)

  • We had the most amazing time. It was a last minute birthday get away. Lauara and Mark are amazing hosts. It felt like we were at our house!! I can't say enough good things about the entire experience.

  • We loved our stay at the guest house. We had everything we needed and more for our week long stay. The kitchen was well stocked, the house was super cute & clean and best of all, the hammock/hot tub combo was relax-city. The location of the house is great too - it's very close to the park and just a short drive to Pappy & Harriets. Mark was a great host and made sure we were all set. We would definitely stay again!

  • Laura and Marks place was nothing short of awesome! Right in he middle of Joshua's Tree, and was exactly as presented in their listing. The actual park is less than 20 to 30 minutes away with some great local bars and cafes to sit down and just chill out. Their hot tub they have in their yard overlooking the actual town is most definitely a plus. Even better after a day of hiking and exploring Joshua Tree itself! Would definitely stay here again next I am in Joshua's Tree.

  • Our first time at Joshua Tree was amazing! My boyfriend and I really just needed a getaway and this was the perfect spot! We hit alot of traffic and ran late on Friday and Laura and Mark were super accomodating! The house was really clean, they had a folder of things to do, the hammocks were so peaceful to lay in and read, and the hot tub was the BEST PART! Sitting in the hot tub watching the beautiful night sky was such a cool experience! The beds were also super comfy and they really did provide us with everything we could possibly need! I would recommend the Hidden Valley hike and Ryan Mountain - also note that it cost $15 to get into the National Park, but their location is literally 5 minutes away!

    The only strange thing was the smell of the towels which I think came from the water. Maybe it was something in the irrigation system but the water definitely smelled funky - probably a joshua tree thing!

  • This was the perfect weekend getaway for my boyfriend and I. It had everything we needed as far as accommodations and amenities as well as a wonderful property, close to the state park and other local things. I highly suggest this place!

  • Awesome guest house in Joshua Tree.

    I read, listened to music, danced, brainstormed, drank beer, hiked, yoga'd, meditated, cooked, grilled, stargazed, and slept. Artwork rested my mind. Hot tubs warmed my heart.

    Mark was easy to work out logistics with and had great suggestions for what to do in town and in the area.

    Can't beat it!

  • The guest house was a very comfortable, open space to spend a few days. It's private, secluded and very close to the Joshua Tree park entrance but also close to nearby restaurants, shopping and grocery stores.

    Mark and Laura are great hosts, very accommodating and offer a lot of information about stuff to do in the area. Thanks for a nice, relaxing stay!
