Mid-century-style architectural project turned cozy retreat.
A dramatic setting high-up above the desert floor that offers privacy and breathtaking views as far as the San Joaquin Mountains.
30 mins to Palm Springs & 20 mins to Joshua Tree.
The house is pet-friendly, but I ask that you let me know if you intend to bring your pet, because my cleaner will charge me an adtl. $25 for pet hair removal, which has become a bit of an issue lately.

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.

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!!

Simone’s place was everything we hoped for in our stay in the Joshua Tree area. It’s stylish, outfitted with everything you need, and set in a beautiful location. I’ll never forget the view of the valley from the top of the hill. Hope to be back someday :)

We had a great time at this beautiful, modern home. It was in a peaceful, secluded location, but not far from shops and restaurants, including Pappy & Harriet's. Everything inside was clean and comfortable. We would certainly stay again when in the area.

Amazing place, with amazing views! Simone was very helpful with getting me sorted, then honored my privacy. The views are stunning, and the house is one of a kind. Great for artists and writers. Just be sure to drive slow with low clearance vehicles. the road leading up to the house perched on the hill is a bit rough. I would highly recommend visiting.
