Our modern 600 sqft retreat is nestled on 5 acres of desert land across the mountain ranges of the Joshua Tree National Park, just 15-min drive from the North Entrance. A home away from home, the studio is equipped with all the essentials, an over-sized swamp cooler, and a heating system, plus a few perks — gaze under the starry night in our wood-fired hot tub, which also doubles as a cool soak pool by day in the summer, a large covered patio, panoramic views of the desert mountains.

Ben and Alice's space is quiet, peaceful and so thoughtfully put together. It was a joy to visit after a day at Joshua Tree and to take a dip in the tub beneath the stars!

Amazing location with amazing amenities. I ended up overthinking what I needed to bc this place had everything. Easy check in/check out, just bring food and a free spirit and everything else is there. The pics don't do this place justice at all. P.S. bring firewood and firestar…
