I use my shadow to keep a rock on my head.
A perfect Joshua Tree retreat! The location is truly perfect. It is so close to the park and within walking distance to what most say is the best food in Joshua Tree (Crossroads.) It is also right at Coyote Hole, which is an amazing place to experience. What the pictures don't show you is just how gorgeous the landscaping is at this guest studio. So if you come back from the park and just want to hang out and read, it is such a relaxing and beautiful place to do so. All other pictures are accurate, including the stars! JayBe was such a helpful host and only wants his guests to be completely comfortable. Inside are sun hats, sunscreen, coffee, other helpful provisions and tons of books on the area and for entertainment. I hope to return many times and can't recommend enough.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Jaybe's guest studio. The photos and description in the listing are accurate. The studio is a short drive from the entrance to the national park and is located at the end of a road from which you can do some backcountry hiking. We found the accommodations comfortable, the environment peaceful and a little wild, as we hoped to. Jaybe was friendly, available on the two occasions we called, and respectful of our privacy. He took us on a walk with his dog on the afternoon we arrived. We only wish we had another day to spend there.
Perfect getaway from the city to the high desert. This studio is great for one person or a couple. Private, cute and functional, with everything you need to settle in quickly. You have to cook with electric burner and toaster oven, which we had no problem with. For those who don't want to cook, this studio is a mile away from a great health food store and the fantastic Natural Sisters Cafe. Organic healthy food is easy to obtain. Studio is also close to the Joshua Tree Park entrance, and a short walk from ancient petroglyphs. Just walk across the street and follow the trail past the wash into the gully, and look up along the cliff walls. Fantastic experience overall. JayBe is a wonderful host, told us how to get around and even lent us his backpack for a day hike into 49 Palms Oasis. The bonus on the studio for us was the enclosed outdoor area where we could use the large white walls as our temporary white boards to get some planning done for our business. Way cool to work outside and get sunshine while working like that. The weather was gorgeous, and we experienced spring in the desert. Some delicious blooming going on.
Spent a couple days at the guest studio in March. It's a great space. Quiet. Clean. Close to Joshua Tree national park. Close to the town of Joshua Tree. Right next to some hills you can hike.
The kitchen is stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. There's wifi. Outside areas are perfect for hanging out during the day or looking at the stars at night.
Would definitely go back!
What a wonderful place to stay! JB is awesome. He provided tips for our trip and recommended one of the best pizza joints. The house is comfortable and has a great energy to it. Sitting outside and watching the sunset against the boulders of Joshua Tree National Park was one of the most incredible perks. At night you can see all the stars and sleep like a baby because it's so quiet. Plus, if you like to explore, Joshua Tree National Park is just steps away from JB's property. We will definitely return again to JB's guest studio!
Jaybe's cottage was perfect for our three day visit to Joshua Tree. It was very private and close to both town and the park. And Jayne was more than happy to share his recommendations for the area.
JayBe's studio is one of a kind! It's has a very personal and homely feel to it. We had an amazing time staying there during this past Valentine's weekend.
JayBe is an amazing & humble host and he even left us a box of chocolates for us! I would highly recommend staying at his studio when visiting Joshua Tree.
We had a wonderful time at the studio. This was honestly one of the best experiences staying here, it's location is so central and the view is perfect. The living space is a lot bigger than we thought, and there's actually everything you would need in the kitchen - pots, pans, dish-ware, etc. Jaybe's a great host, he made sure we had everything we needed, even including a sweet gift of chocolate, granted it was a holiday. I would recommend this place to any couple looking for a private weekend in Joshua Tree.
Great place! Close to the park and the town a perfect compromise. Very comfortable bed, warm rooms nice fireplace. We enjoyed it very much thank you JayBe!
Loved the quiet and darkness away from city lights, bright lights. Small studio functional and comfortable for two people, short stay. Appreciated the good heater as was cold in JT during our visit.
JB is a great host...nice and easy going.
