About this listing
This house is my desert retreat from LA where I love to relax, cook, BBQ, go climbing and hiking, lounge in the hammocks, and star-gaze in the hot tub. There is a comfy king sized bed, a sofa that converts to a queen sized bed, and a queen sized air mattress. It is located in a quiet neighborhood 5min drive to the town of Joshua Tree and a 10min drive to the Joshua Tree National Park entrance.

Living Room: ideal for lounging, reading, socializing, and TV/ movie watching. There are also games available - this living room has seen many a jenga tower topple! The 55" TV has a DVD player, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and very limited local channels (no cable).
Dining Room: seats 4 and there are 2 extra folding chairs if you need to seat more. There is more dining seating on the patio as well.
Kitchen: small but mighty! I cook in here often so it should be fully stocked with anything you might need. Including locally roasted coffee and tea! There is a gas stove and oven, toaster oven, microwave, disposal, dishwasher, and hot diggity dogger (really). Additional appliances (blender, rice cooker, ice cream maker, etc) are available. Disclaimer: the exhaust fan over the stove has a mind of its own. It will turn on and off on its own when the oven is in use and the heat sensor deems it time for the fan to be on.
Master bedroom: comfy King sized bed. Depending on the season, the bed will be made with either a very warm down comforter or a light blanket. You can, of course switch these out as you prefer.
Guest Room: quiet reading and relaxing space. The sofa converts to a queen bed. There is also a queen sized air mattress available.
Bathrooms: The master bathroom and hall bathroom have a jack-and-jill style shower/tub room that connects them. So, each bathroom has direct access to the shower and can close the other side off. The bathrooms are kept stocked with fresh towels and basic toiletries such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer.
Garage: front-loading washer/dryer in case you need to do laundry during your stay.
Backyard: fully fenced, great for BBQing, outdoor meals, lounging in hammocks, relaxing around the fire pit, hot tubbing, and star gazing.
Parking: for 3-4 cars in the driveway, and street parking is available
Interaction with guests
Feel free to email, text, or call me with any questions or concerns.
Hi guests, in addition to the standard airbnb rules, I kindly ask a few additional things of you:
Always lock up: Whenever you leave the house (even a 5 min run to the store, and especially at check-out), please make sure all the windows are closed and the doors are locked.
Hot tub rules: Enjoy the hot tub at your own risk. No glass in or near the hot tub - please use the plastic cups for enjoying a beverage in the hot tub. Always lock the hot tub cover when it's not in use (the wind is crazy out here and has been known to blow it off)
Pet policy: Do not leave any pets in the house or yard unattended. No pets are allowed on any of the furniture. Clean up the yard if your pet uses it. And please inform me in advance of your stay if your pet will be joining you in the house. $20 additional fee.
Dishes: Please only hand-wash and dry the knives, pans, and wood cutting board. Load the remainder of the dirty dishes into the dishwasher and set it to run before you check-out.
No glasses directly on the wood surfaces - please use a coaster
Fire: You are welcome to use the grill and firepit (stored in the garage), but only outside on the concrete patio and at your own risk. Be very careful of sparks in the fire-prone desert! Please clean the grill if you choose to use it. Neither charcoal nor firewood are provided, but available at many local stores only a quick drive away.

I am an architect living in Venice, CA with a passion for rock climbing - especially in Joshua Tree! I am happiest when I am climbing, sleeping, traveling, reading, hiking, practicing yoga, cooking, watching opera, and doing pretty much anything with friends. I am new to airbnb hosting and am hoping that folks will love my home as much as I do. I am excited to share my space and the joy/relaxation it brings me with others!
