Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Whether you're an outdoorsy type that likes nothing better than setting off on a hiking trail or somebody who just wants a few days away from the noise and non-stop pace of city life, this cute home sat just a mile away from Joshua Tree National Park is a dream. Surrounded by Californian desert, there's seating on the terrace or hammocks from which to enjoy the silence, as well as a fire pit for when the sun goes down and it's just you and the stars up above to keep you company. Inside, there are plenty of board games, meditation spaces and streaming options to keep you occupied, as well as a guitar in case you fancy a campfire sing-song. Walking routes start just across the road, while the town of Twentynine Palms is less than ten minutes away by car in case you're ever craving civilisation — although, with the tranquillity that abounds out in these parts, we don't blame you if you just fancy sticking to your desert abode.
