Excellent hosts with a lovely house--highly recommend! Provided everything we needed for a fantastic weekend! House was great and even better than advertised, and the entire process was totally smooth. Thanks Kim and Marian!
My friends and I stayed her while we were in town for Shakti Fest and it's only a 5 minute drive from the retreat center. We didn't spend much time hanging at the house with our schedule but it had all the amenities and comforts available for any visitor. Great communication with hosts as well. It was a perfect first Air B and B experience!
Like everyone else, I will echo that these place is even better than the photos! It has everything you need and really good vibes too. It is just so comfortable and relaxing to be there. The beds are super comfortable and the linens are good quality and soft. Again, the whole house is just really comfortable. The decor of the place is perfect for the desert. The view from the backyard is great. It is far enough away from town but not too far for a quick trip to the store. Close to Joshua Tree and to Pioneer Town, a really perfect desert escape. We didn't want to leave! I do highly recommend this house. I didn't meet Marian or Kim but they were very easy to get in touch with via email and we had no problems with communication at all.
The pictures of Desert Artist Escape don't do it justice. This lovely home with gorgeous morning and nighttime views is a perfect getaway and environment for creativity. Kim/Marian made it very easy for us to settle in. The house was clean, chocked with amenities and perfect distance from Joshua Tree and other attractions. As a seasoned traveller of the desert, I'd highly recommend this spot.
Celebrating my 31st Birthday amongst the boulders, big night skys, and tranquil beauty of Joshua Tree was more than a dream come to life. Our home for two nights was in the perfect location for day tripping thru Joshua Tree Park, and night ventures up to Pappy and Harriets in Pioneer Town. The home has a beautiful mid-century decor, and a fantastic out-door lounge overlooking Yucca Valley, complete with fire-pit! The beds were comfy, linens were SOFT, pillows just right! WIFI & Cable keep you connected, while a blender for Margiritas keeps you hydrated. A short ride up a firmly packed dirt-road located just off the 29 palms highway will find you in a PERFECT spot to chill and enjoy.
THANK YOU K&M! We will be back!
We enjoyed our stay at this house very much. Very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen to stay in all weekend and cook, while enjoying the twinkling lights from town at night on the large patio. All the wood you need to build a fire in the fire pit too. On Sunday we ran into Kim as we were leaving and she was a sweetheart. Would stay here again on visits to Yucca Valley. Great home-base for hiking the surrounding desert trails.
Kim and Marian have created a wonderfully comfortable place which is thoughtfully stocked with real art. There are no posters here! We really appreciated the care and personality of the place - we felt at home for three nights.
The layout of the place is great - private enough even for those who may be sharing the place. The bedrooms are large, the beds comfy and with good linens. The bathroom and tub/.shower is clean and new and nicely designed. The kitchen is well-stocked and bottled water is provided. Firewood is provided also. The overall decor is simple good taste which is entirely to ouir liking.
The house is situated on top of a small hill with a great view of town from a huge covered patio furcnished with three sofas. The photos really do not show how nice this is. There are neighbours nearby but over the long weekend we never saw another person, just a few vehicles passing along the road.
This place was perfect for our purposes and we would certainly return. Really could not ask for more given the location, decor and amenities. Additionally, Kim and Marian were very responsive to the questions we had which made the whole process really smooth. They are honest and straightforward.
This is exactly the sort of place that would make us return to airbnb to search out great spots again.
We loved it. This place was a great find on AirBnB. It was quiet, clean, decorated very nicely, and had excellent amenities. The kitchen was stocked with essential spices and utensils and we loved the outdoor couches. Thanks for a great experience!
What excellent style! This little desert nook was the perfect spot for three friends, one small pup, and I to post up for a weekend getaway. Three of us are photographers and found plenty of incredibly inspiring surroundings, our fourth is an interior designer who couldn't get enough of the mid-century and artsy stores around town. Kim and Marian were very kind and quickly responsive, and the home was comfy & stylish. Definitely recommend staying here for a quite, artsy escape.
The Desert Artist Escape was the perfect place for a stay in the Joshua Tree area. It was centrally located and just minutes from the park as well as Pioneertown. The house was quite comfortable for an extended stay. The beds were comfortable and the internet access was great. We also enjoyed the backyard area.Thank you Kim and Marian for the little extras like the bottled water. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
Kim and Marian are the most thoughtful hosts! Even though I had the house to myself, their artistic presence, mid-century appointments, and further attentions to detail offered a most comfy, "taken care of" feel ever. This house gave me the best of all worlds - breathtaking sunrise and sunset views, desert quiet and serenity, and modern conveniences of everyday life (LOVE the shower!), and privacy. It is close to excellent art and food venues in the local area small towns and of course, the famous Joshua Tree National Park. Having used AirBnB many times throughout the United States, I'm so glad Kim and Marion are here. Now you and many other people have the opportunity to discover this precious, desert escape!
