Rubble Mountain, Joshua Tree, USA
Click to book Rubble Mountain now: from £630 per night It's no wonder this eco-friendly home has been featured in a leading luxury and lifestyle travel magazine. This stunning space is the perfect retreat for friends or families seeking some peace and quiet in California's wild desert. Neatly tucked away on five acres of open wilderness, you'll be surrounded by a striking landscape that is sure to give this trip a most magical feeling. Wind down with your favourite tipple around the fire pit or stargaze from the hot tub. There's also a barbecue, an outdoor shower and plenty of comfortable places to sit back and relax. Inside, you'll find desert-inspired decor and signature earth-tone concrete block walls throughout. We are in love with the vistas from the floor-to-ceiling windows from every room – especially from the master bedroom, which commands magnificent views in two directions. Cosy up around the fire on chilly evenings and play board games, or select a book to read. With so much to offer, it won't be hard to unwind in this enchanting setting. On top of all this, you're just a ten-minute ride from Joshua Tree Village and a mere three-minute drive from Joshua Tree National Park itself. Or admire the sculpture and folk art at the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, twenty minutes in the car. No matter how you choose to spend your time, you'll be glad to return home to this gem at the end of the day. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Nothing is Impossible, Madison County, USA
Click to book Nothing is Impossible now: from £196 per night Tucked away between two mountain ridges, in a beautiful spot in the Ozarks, this fabulous home is the perfect place to relax and reconnect with nature. Not only will you be surrounded by the abundant flora and fauna this part of Arkansas is known for, but you'll also be staying in a home designed specifically to have little or no impact on it. Built with sustainability in mind, it's a 'passivhaus' which is cleverly heated by the sun in winter. By day you take in the zen and pollinator gardens full of native plants, relax on one of three patios, do some yoga, work out in the gym or play bocce ball, Baggo or badminton on the lawns. In the evening, treat yourself to a long soak in the tub (with bath bombs made by the host, using herbs from the garden), then fire up the grill or whip up a meal in the stylish plastic-free kitchen. A luxurious retreat with solid eco-credentials and astounding attention to detail, this place ticks all the boxes. The hosts even have access to a local hiking and kayak company and can arrange for a massage therapist, private yoga instructor, grocery deliveries, and even for a helicopter to whisk you away on a scenic flight. The four-acre estate is a five-minute drive from Huntsville and half an hour from Fayatteville. Within thirty-five minutes you can be at Ozark Natural Science Center, Withrow Springs State Park and Hobbs State Park – not to mention all the trails and attractions closer to home. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Under The Rocks, Joshua Tree, USA
Click to book Under The Rocks now: from £275 per night Get off-grid at this boho chic home in the middle of the desert, built with eco friendly principles in mind and powered by the sun. The interior has been designed to let the natural breeze keep things cool, and thick stone walls give it a Spanish feel. Potted cacti are dotted around the living room, where a rustic wood-burning stove keeps the desert chill away at night. A stunning, white stone breakfast bar creates plenty of prep space in the kitchen, where you can rustle up meals after days exploring the desert. After dining from the beautiful earthenware crockery, head outside to do some stargazing from the sofas. There's also a hammock strung up on the shaded porch, where you can look out over endless sky and rugged landscapes from morning until night. You'll feel perfectly at peace here, but if you'd like to add a little excitement into the mix, then the live music bars and shops of historic Pioneertown are only a ten minute drive away. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Backcountry Living, Garfield County, USA
Click to book Backcountry Living now: from £479 per night Nestled in the Rockies is this Colorado mansion set on 35 acres of grasslands. This warm wooden haven is a true mountain retreat adequate to host the extended family or a large group of friends. With plenty of indoor-outdoor living space, everyone will feel recharged before and after days spent reclining on chaise loungers or in the pool set into the home’s courtyard. When there is snow, you can cross-country ski off your own back-door and into the yard. The location is quite rural which means ultimate seclusion, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hit the slopes of Aspen for the day. We love that the home was built for a sustainable future, with geothermal heating throughout. Wish days away with a BBQ or roast s'mores on the fire. Not to mention the accompanying views of the sunset over the Elk Mountain range. Sleeps up to 12 | 5 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms
Oyster Castle, The Hamptons, USA
Click to book Oyster Castle now: from £1412 per night An eco-friendly haven away from the world, you can see that the host’s focus on sustainability was instrumental in this home’s design. A solar powered saltwater pool, solar panels on the roof, and an electric car charging port make this Hamptons home a green getaway that doesn't compromise on style. The interiors are all modern boho chic, caramel woods and nautical wall hangings adding a warmth and brightness to the space that’s echoed by the sunshine pouring through enormous glass patio doors. There’s a dab of whimsy that’s just enough to charm young and young at heart. The bright kid’s bedroom features a wall mural of friendly flamingos and tropical palms, and a well-stocked children’s library and mini desk space will spark little imaginations. The rest of the home and gardens, of course, can be enjoyed by all ages – after all, are you ever really too old to play in the sandpit? When the heat of the day gets too much, dive into the pool to cool down, retreat inside for a siesta or delve into your latest holiday read on one of the sun loungers. If you can bring yourself to leave the home there’s a host of activities within a short drive – perhaps you’ll head to the shore of Rogers Beach, just five minutes from your front door, or take an adults-only trip to sample the best of the vineyards of North Fork. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
