Stay under the stars in the desert but be just 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs! 900 sq' studio guest house on five acres with gorgeous desert and mountain views. Comfortably fits two with a real queen bed, bathroom with shower, kitchenette.
We strive to live a sustainable life while still enjoying life's little luxuries. Our main house and multiple features around the property were built with strawbales, and other waste materials. The guest house was built with mostly salvaged and recycled materials. The guest house is a 900 square foot studio with private access from the driveway. You have an actual queen bed - not an inflatable mattress. The bath is a 3/4 bath with a huge shower. The living space has a large entertainment center with a 55" TV. The sound system will make you feel like you are right in the middle of the action. Relax by the fireplace in the overstuffed chair while you read a book or listen to the vintage sound system. If you are a music lover or audiophile, you'll feel right at home here. Musician friendly, instruments available - be inspired for your next album or even record in the beauty and quiet of the desert! The kitchenette is fully stocked and has everything you need to prepare simple meals plus there is an outdoor grill. The property is five acres with hiking, horseback riding and motorcycle trails leading off the property. Stargazers are not to be left out, we have super dark skies, perfect for stargazing with great views of the night sky with the naked eye. Bring your telescope or use ours for an even more breathtaking view. You can welcome the day watching the sun come up over the hills behind the house while practicing your favorite yoga pose and end the day enjoying the sunset over the San Jacinto mountains sitting at the firepit with your favorite drink.
Both the main house and guest house share the backyard and pool with two dogs.
Interaction with guests
I walk all guests through check-in. We live in the main house and will be available in person or via text after that with anything you need.
Other things to note
Please note we are NOT in Joshua Tree. We are about 40 minutes from the park entrance. We are closer to Palm Springs - about 20 minutes to downtown Pam Springs.
We personally check in all guests. In your request please note the time you would like to arrive.
We expect you to treat our home as you would want someone to treat your home.
We do not charge a cleaning fee so please leave the guest house in the same condition you found it :)
Absolutely no smoking or drugs on the property.
We can not accept reservations with kids as the guest house, property and pool areas are not set up for children.
Also, we can not accept reservations with pets.
I live just outside of Palm Springs, CA with Mark, my husband of 25 years. Our two kids are grown - son in the Navy and daughter in a performing arts school. I'm an avid gardener and slightly obsessed with farmer's markets and when I'm not working on our property, I volunteer - I'm the Special Events Coordinator for the Desert Horticultural Society and also the Garden Coordinator for Palm Spring High School. We have varied interests from hiking to concerts. We absolutely love living here in our desert paradise! We have all this beauty and tranquility surrounding us and yet we are two hours away from whatever we want to do - beaches, L.A., mountains, lake, Mexico, etc. What more could you ask for?
