About phillip maberry

Artists living and working in Landers. My partner and I built our house in 2007. We moved here from New York state after living there for over 25 years. Tired of the brutal winters & high humidity in summer, we find the High-Desert a welcome change.

phillip maberry purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home ! We enjoyed our stay here in the desert with various hikes and trips to Joshua Tree park . Our evenings were filled with cooking in your perfectly equipped kitchen, the fresh herbs from the garden, the incredible views , the silence and peaceful location. Take care !

Magical Home in Landers

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vrbo experience our family has ever had, and we are already planning our return trip to the Holiday House! A perfect desert getaway near Joshua Tree park, Pioneertown, and desert rocks. The house is so beautiful and well-appointed, and the views from every direction are incredible. Phillip and Scott are thoughtful and helpful hosts -- we had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend away from it all.

The best of the best.

Pure Enchantment!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday House and had an amazing time. There's so much to look at, it's easy to miss all the neat little details. Phillip and Scott are very friendly and accommodating. The property is extremely private and very quiet. We enjoyed the projection tv and sound system very much. Also, great views in all directions. Highly recommend!!!

Beautiful property and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Phillip is a great host and communication was excellent. His house is beautifully appointed with exceptional amenities and colorful artwork. We loved using the fire ball every night, stargazing, and trying out the movie projector.
