*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.**

The house was more than described. Pictures cannot capture the gloriousness that is this property. A beautiful space, quiet and secluded, to provide a perfect retreat for groups. I am always exceptionally surprised and content every time I use Joshua Desert Retreats. Couldn't ask for a better service. Will continue to use them for the foreseeable future!

Nick was very helpful in responding to any questions that I had. The place itself was amazing. The decor in both houses was well picked out with plenty of room to relax. Each kitchen was well supplied with utensils, plates, pots, and pans. We were even provided some extra cleaning supplies. I love this ranch! It has everything and more. I would definitely go again and recommend this place to others.

Nick was fantastic. He accommodated all of my needs and answered all of my questions promptly. The Godwin Adobe Ranch exceeded all of our expectations. It's beautifully secluded and quiet. Everything is so well though out and cozy. All of our needs were met, and more. I had the best birthday weekend ever on the ranch. Pictures do it no justice. You have to see it. I highly recommend it.

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.
