Magical nights gazing at the milky way! Situated by the road to the National Park entrance, amongst one of Joshua Tree's many small artistic communities, the cabin is surrounded by mountains, natural desert & valleys with spectacular views from every window, porch and deck!
Elevated above town next to the National Park, this unique area has arguably some of the darkest skies for star gazing and watching the moon rise over distant valleys!

The space

A professionally cleaned, cozy restored Joshua Tree homestead cabin with an eclectic mix of bohemia, vintage and desert modern. Situated by the road leading into Joshua Tree National Park's West Entrance with its own gate and driveway. You are minutes away from the small town of Joshua Tree and into the Park.
For hiking or rock climbing trips, this is the perfect location for easy access to the Park entrance and back into Town for restaurants, farmers market and art galleries.

One room cabin with separate shower room. Queen Size Real Bed.
Air conditioning and heating.

The cabin and grounds have wifi service. If you are in need of fast internet please be aware because of our proximity to the Park - service is slow and can be limited due to weather conditions.

Guest access

Separate & private from the main house - the cabin is never owner occupied. Professionally cleaned after every visit.

There is a porch and outside seating area for star gazing and watching the sun & moon rise over the Valley.

Private parking next to the cabin. Manual sliding gate to be used as needed for extra privacy.

Interaction with guests

Your own personal desert cabin. Top priority is given to your privacy. Any communication/questions you need answered before or during your stay are easy by text, phone or email.

Other things to note

A cozy 250 Sq. Ft. restored homestead cabin one mile to the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park.

PLEASE NOTE - cabin is not set up for any major cooking but has a small kitchen nook with sink, mini fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle & coffee machine.

The Joshua Tree Highlands area is amongst some of the most beautiful residential areas in JT. The cabin gives you easy access in and out of the National Park. Very quiet nights shared with chattering coyotes, signaling across the mountains.

Due to the popularity of this incredible Park we have park visitors/traffic during the day especially on holiday weekends & there will be day time traffic to the park.

Enjoy breakfast on the porch, watching the sunrise or for an evening nightcap under the stars.

IMPORTANT ~ PLEASE print out the directions and codes sent prior to your visit. Your calls may not go through to me in certain areas of the high desert.

Catherine's place was outstanding. The views were stellar, and check in/out were seamless. The place was clean, cute, and the a/c worked perfectly. I'd definitely stay here again.

Catherine as a human is amazing. She's warm and friendly and alive. The cabin itself is a pure reflection of those characteristics. It's thoughtfully decorated and designed, with a cozy front porch, beautiful interior, colors that are perfectly suited for desert climates and moods. It's adorable and private and sweet. The area is in perfect proximity to everything you'd ever need: the national park with its welcoming joshua tree days and daunting evenings, delicious restaurants and magical little shops. The outside area of the cabin (beside the porch) offers exceptional stargazing. It's a place to discover all you came to discover about yourself, the desert, people and the universe. If you want something special, this is the place.

Perfect place to decompress and rejuvenate. Serene, clean and comfortable. It is _the_ place to stay in Joshua Tree!

This was such a great cabin, everything we needed for a weekend stay at Joshua Tree. Perfect for two guests, with great proximity to the park and town. The cabin has great vintage desert vibes and yet modern touches. Can't wait to visit again! Catherine was a wonderful host and it was such a pleasure getting a chance to meet her on our last day before checking out.

This Joshua Tree Airbnb experience was above and beyond our expectations! Catherine artistically created an environment that was visually pleasing and comforted us physically. We liked it so much that we are looking for a desert cabin of our own using Catherine's creation as our inspiration!

I love this cozy cabin. It was my second visit and is the perfect place to unplug from the city (Los Angeles). It has a Scandinavian-minimalist-vintage design aesthetic and the location is perfectly located between the park and JT town.
