The Space

This is a 1000 Sq. foot modern house in a dramatic setting. It was a design prototype showcasing a unique metal canopy system, that once boasted canvas curtains closing off the house all the way around. It is very private w/its own driveway shared only by a similarly unique architectural house, whose owner lives out-of-state. The house boasts incredible 360 degree views as far as San Jacinto Mountain above Palm Springs. You will not find many other houses this dramatically located and uniquely decorated.

Guest Access

The whole House will be available. It sleeps 4 ppl comfortably. The Step-down Bedroom has a Queen size Bed & the upper Studio has a brand-new Queen size fold-out Couch. It is easily unfolded in one simple step. The layout is a Studio w/a separate Step-down Bedroom. However the Bedroom has no door, so just know privacy is limited somewhat until I get around installing a door btw the upper Studio & the Step-down Bedroom. There is a high-quality Harmon Kardon Bluetooth Speaker set up at the house which you can use to stream your favorite music or radio station.

Interaction with Guests

I am available 24/7 via phone msg or txt, should there be any problems. Access will be granted via exchange of access codes etc.

The Neighborhood

There is plenty to do. Check out Pioneertown, roughly 15 mins drive. Specifically Pappi & Harriet's, a cherished, Bar/Music Venue/destination. Great food & the most unique atmosphere. You should also check out the Integratron in Landers, about 30 mins drive: totally whacko science project dating from the 50ies. Fabulous experience, but you need a reservation, unless you get lucky driving up. Also check out 29 Palms Inn in 29 Palms, a natural Oasis/Restaurant/Inn where the rat-pack used to stay that's very special also... otherwise eat @ MaRouge in Yucca Valley, especially b/fast & I love the authentic Thai Food @ Royal Siam Thai in Joshua Tree. Natural Sisters' Cafe in Joshua Tree just dwn the road from the Thai place is great for veggie fare, fresh shakes etc. La Copine is a great new breakfast & lunch only spot that is a jummy addition to the local restaurant scene. The Joshua Tree Saloon is a fun local hang-out w/bands playing, karaoke nights and such. There is a locally flavored swap meet every Sat & Sun mornings in Yucca Valley bhd the Food4Less. Very cool. Lot's of thrifting everywhere as well...

Getting Around

You will need a car to get around. The house is about 1 mile off HWY 62 on a private road. Turn-off is a dirt road that poses no problems for regular passenger cars. No 4 wheel vehicle needed.

Other Things to Note

The house is not the kids-friendliest, due to being located on a steep rocky hill. There are many collectible artifacts exhibited in the house that are fragile. Rough play is not encouraged for that matter. Teens should enjoy exploring the setting. Campfires are generally not ok, due to the extreme fire danger in this dry & windy environment. Do not light a BBQ, in case you bring one, if it is windy, which is often, because it is a foothill/canyon setting. If you do plan to BBQ, please make sure to MONITOR that BBQ AT ALL TIMES, please, as even small sparks can spark a large fire!!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

Please be mindful of the many dear exhibits in the house and treat them respectfully. Please be careful with open fires (see important notes above). PLEASE! Please, please no outside BBQ due to fire hazard. Also: please make sure to have the fireplace vent set to the 'open' position should you want to light it. Please turn AC & heaters OFF when not @ the house as it consumes a lot of energy. Please also mind your water use, as the house is on its own well and water resources are scare. Generally, please leave everything just the way you found, please. Generally: Please don't light fires/ fireworks outdoors, and try not to throw *totally* outrageous parties is all. Please note that there is a one-time pet fee of $25. Due to the location of the house, to connect to the internet you will need to utilize the 'personal hotspot' function every cell phone is equipped with. There is excellent reception at the house, so there will be no problem running the internet via your phone. Thank you for your attention & have a great stay now!!
