Was a great place to stay. It was very easy to find and was close to the town center. It felt nice and cozy inside and the decor was very well thought out. The beds were very comfy and the rest of the house was fully furnished and clean.
We had a wonderful couple of nights at Planetary Heights. Plenty to see and do, under the clearest of skies. The perfect escape for people looking for some rest and relaxation.
Wonderful in every way. Beautiful location, charming and comfortable accommodations. We are looking forward to coming back.
Great place, exactly as advertised. Very clean, comfortable, quiet/peaceful and yet just a short drive from the center of the town of Joshua Tree. Loved the outdoor patio! The town itself was nice, too - local bars/restaurants/shops, not the national chains such as in nearby towns (which are within easy driving if you want those instead). Mark was a very friendly host, answering all our questions in advance and offering a number of helpful tips and suggestions for the area. Also had a nice welcome book that provided a good overview of how things worked in the house, and suggestions for things to do. Only issue was a bit of confusion regarding check-out time on our final day, but that worked out fine in the end.
Just back from Joshua where we have spent the week end at Mark's place. It is an amazing secluded and peaceful house with a beautiful view. The house is super clean, and comfortable. We were five,there is a little house with one twin bed where my daughter 14 slept, and she loved it of course. We have used a very good air mattress in the living room, and our friends werein the bedroom.The heaters work perfectly. I have nothing wrong to say about our experience at Mark's house and we will be happy to come back for our next visit.
I went to spent the weekend at Mark's house with some friends and we had a magical perfect experience. The house is very secluded and peaceful, with amazing views. We had a great time eating BBQ, looking at the stars trough the telescope and relaxing at this beautiful place.
Such a lovely place! Lots of room to spread out and find a quiet corner when we needed our solitude. Conveniently close to our reason for being in the desert, Joshua Tree NP. Mark was easy to contact whenever we had a question.
We had a marvelous time and can't wait to get back. Both host and home get an A+!
Place was as hoped. Clean. Peaceful. Surronded by beautiful vistas. And all together pleasant.
Thanks for sharing your home Mark.
This house was just perfect for my friends and I to get away from the bustle of Los Angeles. Driving on the dirt road (not for too long) to get to the house set the tone already of seclusion and that "off the grid" type feeling you long for in a trip to Joshua Tree. (Don't worry, we still had wifi). The house itself has a rustic charm with lots of re purposed decor that goes well with the mysterious air of this town. In the living area were two large comfy couches, the bedroom in the main house was large yet cozy, and the mini stand alone cottage/bedroom is perfect for that friend or couple that need that little extra separation. But really the true gem was at night, laying on the hammock staring off into the stars as far as my city eyes can see. Lost count of how many shooting stars we spotted.
We highly recommend this house when staying at Joshua Tree and will come back to stay again! Thank you Mark for the quick responses and for making it easy for us.
Mark and his wife Alexandra were great guests! I would definitely host them again. Very friendly and respectful guests.
Once in a while I greet a guest couple and have curiosity as to how they ever got together, because they seem so different. With Mark and Alexandra it didn't take long before I realized they were a beautiful match, as each was friendly, warm and interesting, but their differences in their work and personalities complemented each other. I was definitely amazed at how utterly stylish Alexandra was which is a quality I admire but definitely lack.
Perfect guests......I'd certainly like to have them back and would recommend them to all.
We give Mark and his family a ten plus rating! Mark, his wife, and their three children were wonderful. The children were extremely polite and very well behaved. They left the house immaculate, which is very much appreciated. I would love to have the Hornish family back again!!!!!!
It was great to welcome Mark. And when he saw my art work, he realized I had given him a small piece years ago when we met, probably at Pappy & Harriet''s. How cool to meet again via airbnb. :) Mark is a very kind man. I look forward to another visit. :)
It was great to host Mark! He has been visiting Joshua Tree for many years and it is great fun to be available to provide a Rustic experience for him!!
