4 BR, 2 BA + a unique Dome. Luxury home + rustic, outdoor living.
We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it and so will you! It's so quiet and peaceful and the lovely views change as the sun moves across the sky. We never tire of visiting and we hope you won't either.

A Great Joshua Tree Experience
10 out of 10 would recommend staying here! The house was clean and has everything you need for comfort and entertainment. The front yard has a great view of the surrounding valley which makes it a good place to watch the sunrise/sunset.
Desert get away
Property is comfortable and spacious. We had plenty of room for two families. Only 2 minute drive away from the park. Owner was considerate and always accessible. Overall, great experience!!
Great stay, thanks.
Enjoyed a relaxing stay here for 2 nights in July. Very peaceful with great views over the valley, and amazing stars at night. Everything was just as advertised. Thanks a lot.
Overall, the stay was great. The location and property are both superb, and communication with the host was easy. There were a few things that were minor annoyances, such as the hot tub being turned off so it was cold rather than hot (I guess this is a summer thing, but made the hot tub basically unusable in the cooler evenings when we would have wanted to use it). There was also no cover for the hot tub, which led to a lot of dead critters floating in it. These things are obviously easy to rectify, and we brought the latter to the host's attention, though no cover was provided. I would recommend ensuring the hot tub is both covered and heated if it's a feature you're planning on using.
Perfect desert getaway
This home has a ton of charm and creativity with all the down to earth amenities you'd want. It's both rustic and modernized at the same time. It's the perfect retreat property. You can stay inside and hermit it out. You can spend a ton of time right outside. You can stay the whole time in the dome. You can spend half a day hiking on the trail and scrambling the boulders that's right behind the house. If you go into Joshua Tree, one of the main entrances is literally right there. I mean, it's all so convenient.
My only wish was that there was more info in the welcome binder about heating the dome and the trails. I like having TMI.
Thanks for the stay!
A great place to experience the desert!
We had a wonderful stay here in Joshua Tree. There are many extras at this place that made our experience special. The self-guided walk and high platform out back was a highlight. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, guitar and music. Unfortunately we couldn’t really stay in the dome overnight. The nights were cool and we had some troubles with the heater. I highly recommend this great home. John was very responsive to our needs and communication was excellent. We hope to be back.
We are located just one mile from West Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and all it has to offer for hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding and exploring.
It is an easy drive to museums, golf, shopping, art galleries and even southern California's famous theme parks. Great local restaurants are nearby for a night out. We are only 45 minutes from Palm Springs and all it has to offer. The Desert House is an excellent vacation rental with something for everyone.
Other Activities: rock climbing, hiking.
