About the Property

House, 1 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Leave your troubles behind and bask in the beauty of nature. The National Park begins a short walk up the road. Enjoy stunning hiking trails into a desirable, but little known area of (south) Joshua Tree.

A landmark straw bale house with a single bedroom with a queen size bed, a 'great room' with single trundle beds (2 beds) (possibility for others to be added) and a lush garden with big vistas of desert and mountains. A very restful place used as an artist residency most of the time.

Perfect as a romantic couples getaway or for a group. By evening cozy up to a crackling fire in the courtyard. Cook your meals in the well-equipped kitchen and snuggle into soft covers by night. There are ample fresh linens for a party of four. (Additional beds could be added.) In the morning sip fresh brewed coffee while staring into expansive vistas in every direction. The large picture windows overlook far away mountains and desert. This is a landmark straw bale house with a 16' vaulted ceiling. Hot tub located in an enclosed courtyard just outside the bathroom.
