Desert Valley Vista: Mid-Century Ranch Oasis
**PUBLISHED RATE IS FOR A CREW OF 4 PEOPLE OR LESS. PLEASE INQUIRE FOR LARGER CREW RATES**
Built in 1964, this light-filled mid-century home in Yucca Valley features posh vintage furnishings, updated kitchen and bath, and epic patio. Outdoors is a lush desert paradise filled with Joshua Trees, cholla cactus, and mountain views.
While just minutes from town, The Desert Valley Vista sits on over an acre of private land and feels intimate, especially in the backyard with its unique mountainscape fence perfect for photos. Features include a long driveway and optional rental parking for shoot overflow next door, and is on a paved road minutes off the 29 Palms Highway.
Hawkeye Dome House
Hawkeye House, featured on the cover of the May 2019 issue of Dwell Magazine, is an off grid Geodesic Dome that sits on 112 acres in the high desert. This unique and modern home has been fully remodeled with an attention to both comfort and detail. Amazing hikes and privacy are abundant here. Most people never even leave the property.
Inside the dome you will find a gorgeous chef's kitchen. Outside are a BBQ, fireplace, and never-ending hiking trails. Almost every detail was handcrafted, from the custom cabinetry to the wood trim to the welded loft railing. The property contains thousands of Joshua trees and yucca plants, it has hills, mountains, boulders and probably the best views in the area. The structure was fully renovated in 2017 with a minimalist modern interior while still keeping to the futuristic 60's vibe of the Dome. The property is off grid so there are no power lines. We use sustainable solar panels and batteries to provide power. It is also only 7 minutes from the main highway with many antique shops, convenience stores and restaurants.
As mentioned, the property is very large. It's hard to describe exactly where the boundaries are, but in general, you can walk and hike wherever you don't see other fences, houses or areas that look private.
Other things to note
-We are powered by solar panels and battery backup. This shouldn’t affect anything but sometimes the generator does kick-in.
-Although it is a dirt road and it may get bumpy, you DO NOT need a 4x4. Drive 5mph at all times.
The Sweet Spot of Joshua Tree
The Sweet Spot is the perfect Joshua Tree vacation rental! With a large outdoor patio and porch swing this location is perfect for exterior shots in the desert.
Spanish Adobe meets Desert Revival
Authentic Spanish adobe meets desert revival. This spacious five acre property is aptly named "El Paraiso del los Suenos" (Paradise of Dreams), not only for the inspiration that the space will conjure but the soundness of sleep it serenity and solitude provides. Nestled in a nook of a tree national park that even the locals don't know about, this space is for the desert connoisseur. Home was built by actor Richard Lynch.
The Gypsy Wagon
5 acres of land boasts a Gypsy Wagon (tiny house) and 5 campsites (each with their own fire pit). Behind our land is 650 acres of public land (Copper Mountain) which will feel like a private National Park for your shoot- hiking, off-roading, horse back riding, etc. Note: It is a 3-5 minute walk to the Copper Mountain scenery. Be prepared for no Wifi access as we are behind Copper Mountain. Private yet easy road access and plenty of parking.
The Gypsy Wagon has a loft, kitchen living room and bathroom. She has AC, heater, water heater, & bluetooth speaker to play your tunes. The Tiny House is 8' wide x 24' long x 14' tall
The Gypsy Wagon is included in the price, campsites on the other hand are booked throughout the year; if you would like the land to yourself without the campsites in use, we will look at the calendar availability. (additional $225 for the day)
You can park on the right side of the gypsy wagon and behind. You cannot park at the other near by campsites.
The Gypsy Wagon is a tiny house and is off the grid so although she has power that you and your production crew can use, if you are using power quicker than it's storing, the energy will run out. In that case, there is a generator, but it is noisy. We can provide a solar generator for an additional $200 (for the day)
Additionally you can book the main house (at an additional $200 for the day). The home will have power for you to use.
We are located 10 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park (by the 'Indian Cove' entrance) Joshua Tree provides unbelievable starry nights and epic sunsets. 13 miles/15 minutes from Joshua Tree's low-key main street. You'll find a saloon, live music, a coffee shop, yoga studio, restaurants, thrift stores, art galleries and more shops. Stater Bros, Home Depot, Walmart, Marshalls are another 5 minutes away in Yucca Valley and Pappy and Harriettes is another 5 minutes down the road in Pioneertown.
