Joshua Tree and the surrounding areas have been all the rage for awhile now. Short-term rentals stuffed with bohemian décor are a dime a dozen, but a few select spots are the sparkling jewels of the desert. Whether you’re looking for décor inspiration for your own home, or planning your next getaway, these desert houses belong on your Pinterest boards.
A 1942 homestead designed with a ’70s rock n’ roll vibe.
One of the OG Joshua Tree vacation homesteads, The Joshua Tree House is an incredible source of interior inspiration. It’s a 1949 hacienda where you can watch the sunrise from the front porch, or stargaze from the hot tub while surrounded by more than 100 Joshua trees.
The design inspiration starts before you even step inside the house. The space is custom designed in the “finca style,” complete with an in-ground pool, hot tub and shaded cabana area out back.
Need a getaway that’s nice and secluded? This is the spot. In fact, it’s so off-the-grid there isn’t enough power for a fridge. But with some of the best views in the high desert, this unique dwelling situated in the hills of yucca valley has everything you could want in a desert getaway. Its clear walls take the “indoor-outdoor” experience to a whole new level. It has its own deck and propane fire pit, is completely off-the-grid and generates its own power from the sun.
If you’re planning a group trip or looking for outdoor design inspiration, Sun Mesa Sanctuary has you covered. From the outdoor bathtubs and hot tub to the indoor ping pong and poker tables and arcade games, it’s the ultimate getaway.
This gorgeous indoor pool is reason enough alone to book your stay at this stunning house. The inside is just as beautiful. If you love clean, modern, minimalist design, you’ll love this space. Our favorite has to be the high ceiling kitchen that opens to a protected patio, hot tub and loungers for stargazing and sunbathing.
You might be thinking, what the heck am I looking at? You’d be surprised how cold the desert gets at night. This unique “bubble-tent” offers the opportunity to stargaze from the comfort of a heated mattress. If bubble-tents aren’t your thing, the property also offers a one-bedroom nouveau ranch-style house.
This space, designed by Mini Inno is a gorgeous source of design inspiration. The minimalistic and thoughtfully monochromatic style make this home the ultimate serene desert getaway.
The name is pretty self-explanatory, once you see the stunning exterior of this home. Plus, the outdoor hot tub features a hand-painted mural by one of our favorite artists, so get ready to see it all over IG.
