*Large events weddings in general are not bookings we conduct through AirBnB. There's more that goes into booking a wedding venue then simply an AirBnB booking. Rates vary depending on number of guest and requirements such as event insurance, renting porta potties, caterers, photographers, on-site property manger for event, and more. Feel free to inquire through AirBnB if you have questions but the booking will be conducted outside this system.*

-**Filming - Contact us directly, like wedding this isn't a booking conducted through AirBnB. Be ready to provide commercial insurance with Joshua Desert Retreats mentioned as one of the insured, shoot time and duration, equipment planning to use list...and more. Again as weddings there is more that goes into allowing you to use our property for production also our rates vary depending on project and needs.**

Upon arrival into the house you will find a contact sheet with emergency details and numbers along with my personal cell phone number where I'm available 24/7 365 days a year if anything comes up please call text at anytime or day.

When planning our trip to Joshua Tree I wanted to stay somewhere special and during my research I happened to stumble upon Adobe house. It was exactly what we were looking for and it made our trip that much more magical. Hanging out under the stars in the peace and quiet was the icing on the cake.

An amazing and spiritual place. Make sure you unlock the doorknobs or you may lock yourself out like we did. Vicky was there to help very quickly. Adobe is a fantastic house, Nick and Vicky were great communicators and very friendly and helpful. We didn't want to leave.

Our stay at adobe was wonderful. Peaceful and serene with nights underneath the beautiful stars while floating in the outdoor hot tub or laying out in the hammock. The home was clean and everything we needed was right there for us, from the kitchen to the abundance of comforters and firewood outside. Just a few miles from the entrance to the park, this is truly a lovely place to stay. Communication with our host was easy and effortless, a professional operation start to finish with 24 hour number to call if anything is needed. Thank you for a lovely stay, Nick. We can't wait to go back.

We had an awesome time and truly enjoyed our stay. We greatly appreciated the very nice outdoor living space with morning coffee and breakfast overseeing the desert and outdoor fireplace, stargazing and shooting star hunt at night. The cabin itself is tastefully furnished and decorated & well-equipped. We booked last minute and communication went very smoothly.

We had a perfect stay at the Adobe. The home is so incredibly beautiful and very clean with all the amenities down to bed warmers, a water cooler, flash lights and even mouthwash. The property in general is magnificent and very vast. It was the perfect setting to watch the sun rise and set as we ate breakfast or barbecued dinner.

The Adobe retreat was exactly as described. We had a pleasant time. The air conditioning saved us from the blistering heat. The decor was nice and the home itself was well designed and spacious. Only a few miles from the Joshua Tree park which made day trips convenient. Would definitely stay again! Thanks!

I grew up in Hawaii, so I know about being connected to the natural life force of the land. I bought my first house in this area 20 years ago to use as a getaway with family and friends. They all said, "You're from Hawaii; what are you doing in the desert?" But the desert is very much like Hawaii; nature has been supported, not paved over. I soon started to rent out that house, buy others in the area, and now I own 14 desert homes that I rent out through my company, Joshua Desert Retreats. This area has become a destination for artists, but it seems like everyone in Southern California at one time or another growing up has gone camping in Joshua Tree National Park, so we get a lot of ex-campers, too. These house's technically isn't in any town, and getting to some requires driving along a dirt road. The town of Twentynine Palms is home to the main entrance of Joshua Tree National Park and only 15 minutes away from any of the properties.
