Need a desert staycation? This well-preserved 1950s homestead sits on 2.5 acres on the outskirts of Twentynine Palms. The property is 15 minutes from the Joshua Tree National Park north entrance. You feel away from it all, but are convenient to all the local amenities. The house is comfortable and full of character and perfect for relaxing after exploring the park.

NOTE: Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect/sanitize between reservations and are spacing out bookings.

The space
We have one master bedroom and a bonus bedroom in a sunny alcove in the front of the house. The house comfortably sleeps up to two couples. A cozy living room features a fireplace to take the nip off the chilly nights. Eat breakfast under the shade of the pepper tree and you might spot jackrabbits, coyotes, roadrunners and quail. On the back patio we have a mid-century outdoor fireplace to help you stay warm while relaxing under starry skies and shooting stars (seriously, lots of shooting stars). Perfect for a romantic getaway, artist/writer’s retreat or an adventure weekend in the park.

The properties around the neighborhood are on minumum 2 1/2 acre lots so there is ample privacy and a sense of peacefulness.

We love to travel, especially by bicycle. There is nothing better than experiencing the landscape at 10 miles an hour. On the whole we like vacations that involve adventure and being immersed in cultures and scenes. In addition to traveling overseas we also love road trips and camping. Clare is originally from Scotland and Kurt is from Colorado. We live in Pasadena, CA and spend as much time as we can in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree National Park. After getting married in Twentynine Palms at the 29 Palms Inn we decided to buy a house out there. When we cannot be there ourselves we rent it out to others. The desert is incredible, so much wildlife and botanical life, breathtaking sunsets, stars forever and many human curiosities because it attracts eccentric and arty folk. We like hosting creative people who are interested in retreating from chaotic city life. In our regular lives, Clare works in arts & design for a public transit agency and Kurt makes films. We have a daughter and two rescue cats.
