Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Leave your troubles behind and bask in the beauty of nature. The National Park begins a short walk up the road. Enjoy stunning hiking trails into a desirable, but little known area of (south) Joshua Tree.

A landmark straw bale house with a single bedroom with a queen size bed, a 'great room' with single trundle beds (2 beds) (possibility for others to be added) and a lush garden with big vistas of desert and mountains. A very restful place used as an artist residency most of the time.

Perfect as a romantic couples getaway or for a group. By evening cozy up to a crackling fire in the courtyard. Cook your meals in the well-equipped kitchen and snuggle into soft covers by night. There are ample fresh linens for a party of four. (Additional beds could be added.) In the morning sip fresh brewed coffee while staring into expansive vistas in every direction. The large picture windows overlook far away mountains and desert. This is a landmark straw bale house with a 16' vaulted ceiling. Hot tub located in an enclosed courtyard just outside the bathroom.

This house is used for artist residencies and is made available to the public when not in use for that purpose.

What makes this house unique

Location Location Location! The Perfect Desert Getaway iis convenient to the town of Joshua Tree, in between the two major entrances into the park with easy to access to the 'village of Joshua Tree' and the 29 Palms area where there are beautiful murals and restaurants to enjoy.

Art as Life!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful space to retreat to from the craziness of our world. Our stay was perfect from the yummy Joshua Tree coffee left for us by our host... to the visually rich art inlaid everywhere you looked....and so many more sweet touches which made this house a perfect place to stay for us. My husband and I came here for a romantic birthday weekend that happened to align with the star showers of persiod. The hot tub provided a perfect place to view the sky in all it's glory. Beautifully maintained and built, this 'hay' house was the perfect den base for hiking, soaking up nature and communing with all that Joshua Tree is. We absolutely were transformed.

Sublime: the house, the setting and Eva Soltes herself.

  • 5 of 5

The fact that you're staying in a place that the amazing composer Lou Harrison's built just adds to the awesomeness of the experience. The house is simple and aesthetically exquisite as befits an artist's home. Eva has done a great job of preserving the spirit of natural wonder and creative inspiration that surely drew Harrison to this spot. Just magic.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My 5 friends and I had an incredible weekend at this beautiful, unique property. We got to enjoy Joshua Tree by day, and the hot tub, great kitchen, and beautiful space outside by night. I couldn't imagine us returning to Joshua Tree and staying anywhere else! And I must second the comments about it's great energy - wonderful!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house made out of straw. Fabulous artworks dotted around the gardens, the most interesting shower I've ever seen, wonderful location on the edge of the park, great hot tub to sit and look at the stars at night. Eva was welcoming and friendly and nice. Plus, at the risk of sounding new-agey, the whole place has a really good energy.

Comfortable, pleasant, interesting

  • 4 of 5

We came from Connecticut to explore Death Valley and Joshua Tree. LOVED JT. Such an amazing spot in the world.

It was great to stay so close to the park. This cozy cottage is just as described, with a comfortable and relaxed ambiance. Big patio for sitting outside and watching the sun rise or set. We enjoyed the interesting yard--and the yard of the Harrison House Art & Music Center across the street. (We read up on Lou Harrison once we figured out the connection--which made the whole place feel more intimate and interesting.)

Couple of downsides: The refrigerator was not cold; we froze bottles of water and put them in the fridge. We could have called the caretaker, but didn't want to take the time and left a note instead. Had to search around for the washer/dryer (in garage). And the place could benefit from a Welcome book, as someone else stated.

But overall, a wonderful, memorable stay. We stayed 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Dear Virginia, Thank you for your review but sorry about the refrigerator. As soon as we were aware that it was not functioning we replaced it! We will definitely get a welcome book with directions to the laundry in place for your next visit! So please come again. Best, Eva
