Visitors come to the High Desert for its unique landscape, culture, and recreational opportunities, as well as for the weather - hot and dry summers and mild winters at our high altitude. Joshua Tree and the communities surrounding the Joshua Tree National Park include Flamingo Heights, Pioneertown, Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, and Landers. You’ll be close to everything at Atomic Ranch. Some of our favorite options available to you:

–Joshua Tree National Park: 800,000 acres of mystical beauty - Joshua Tree National Park is one of the world’s most incredible natural desert treasures. Sweeping, grand in scale and populated by granite monoliths and voluptuous rock and boulder formations. This quiet land, conducive to meditation and roaming, was carved by extremes in climate - wind, rain and an ever-present, relentless sun. Diverse forms of plant life are found everywhere, but none as unique or prevalent as the park’s namesake: the Joshua tree, standing majestically across the vast topography.

–Pioneertown: Step back in time to thus rustic Old West-style village. Wander through the historic buildings, visit unique shops, catch a live music performance at Pappy & Harriets, and experience the Wild West charm.

• The Integratron: New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to experience Joshua tree and the desert. It was perfect from start to finish. The home is professionally managed and everything is clean, maintained, organized. Everything was easy to use and understand. The bed was amazing and the views of the desert were incredible. It’s peaceful and totally private. We would definitely return. Only point to know is that it is quite the trek on a very bumpy sandy road to reach the property. Don’t do it at night.

My wife and I’s stay at the Atomic Ranch was relaxing and needed. The drive to the property is VERY off the beaten path so plan accordingly because once you get there you won’t want to leave because of the property’s location. This clean and cozy home is the perfect size for the couple that wants to get away and have quality time together. The amenities such as the deck, hot tub, and pool were a great indulgence for spending hours of relaxation, with a spectacular 360 degree view of the valley and not a soul in site. The sunrises and sunsets are an unsaid main attraction of this property and well worth it. The operation of the home seemed intimidating at first, but the Homestead hosts gave such care in the step-by-step instructions, it was easy to get the hang of. We really appreciated the automated/networked functionality of the home, everything worked seamlessly. We would recommend this property for a secluded vacation that has luxury amenities that kept it simple.

The previous reviews and listing description for this property are totally accurate. I think this has been my best Airbnb stay so far - the place is very well maintained and outfitted. The surroundings are stunning! Nothing prepares you for the incredible feeling of being alone and surrounded by the vast desert landscape. The place was exactly as described - clean, contemporary, thoughtfully designed and comfortable. The drive up is best done before dark the first time - as previous reviews mentioned. We would definitely go back - hopefully for more time.

This was the dreamiest, most peaceful place I've ever stayed. We travel often and make sure to visit the Joshua Tree area around the same time every year (March/April); so it bears emphasizing that this was the most unforgettable stay I've had here – ever. The floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and position of the bed made waking up to the sunrise each morning absolutely breathtaking. The outdoor couch and fire pit area were perfect for morning coffee and sunset margaritas, and the layout chairs by the pool kept us in heaven throughout the day while reading books and enjoying the insane views. We also agreed that the Joshua Trees on this property (and on the way to the property) were even better than what you see inside the national park. The house is little further out of town, per se, but SO easy to get to and exactly what we wanted. The instructions were crystal clear and the Homestead Modern team was always on top of communication and just so incredibly kind. We will be back!

Our stay for our anniversary was absolutely perfect. The home was the perfect size for my husband and I, and the views were indescribable. It truly felt like being alone in nature, with all the luxurious comforts of home just inside. The surroundings are breathtaking, and as always, the hosts are super kind and responsive.

I've taken several similar trips to rentals in beautiful places, but this place is in a class by itself. The setting is incredibly beautiful, peaceful, and isolated. We didn't hear another thing the whole weekend, even the closest houses are out of view of one another. At night, the sky was an absolute light show. The house is full of modern amenities like remote control shades, great speakers, and a smart tv with a projector. Everything worked perfectly as described. On top of all that, the hosts were the most responsive hosts I've ever encountered. Communication was constant and always helpful from booking to checkout. Unreal. Arriving after dark was a little unnerving, the last few miles are a bumpy dirt road, but GPS was spot on. We never got turned around, and navigating in daytime is easy. Definitely recommend an SUV or a vehicle with some ground clearance just for peace of mind. I won't be looking for another AirBnB anytime soon. I'm just coming here.

We apologize for the inconvenience regarding the speakers not playing simultaneously and the hot tub taking longer than expected to heat up. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we'll definitely look into improving these aspects to ensure a seamless experience for our future guests. We're delighted to hear that despite these minor hiccups, you still enjoyed your stay and plan to return. We can't wait to welcome you back for another amazing stay.

Absolutely unforgettable! My husband & I had the pleasure of celebrating our 5th Wedding Anniversary here last week. We arrived on a Monday, everything was extremely easy to check in. By the time we were inside we checked out of reality and anything else from the outside world! ????The WiFi works perfectly, so you can of course do any work you need to do and watch any movie you haven’t seen on epic projector screen. Stay in bed as late as you’d like since all windows have screens and you can fully block out the Sun. We were having such a blast BBQ-ing & cooking, enjoying eating outside with THAT view! We cancelled our Dinner Reservations for the big night, and stayed in! The energy of this place is such a once in a life time, we didn’t want to leave. Nothing more intimate than cooking together, making cocktails & sitting in the hot tub looking at the stars. This place is sexy, chic, peaceful, romantic, relaxing, a full recharge. Shop ahead, clear your head. Enjoy the desert at this Ranch.

Absolutely amazing stay. If you’re looking for something secluded, surrounded by astonishing views you can enjoy from the porch- this is the place for you. The team at Homestead Modern is incredible- super responsive and helpful with any questions. The house is gorgeous with great music system and projector. Spa was amazing and so lovely on a cold morning. I will 100% be returning.

A fantastic stay! This location and house is absolutely stunning. The energy of the area is unreal- the silent stillness. The house itself is immaculate, well designed and very comfortable for a couple. The jacuzzi is a big plus, wonderful at night. Book this to enjoy pure seclusion and peace.

This place is nothing short of stunning! If you're looking to get away to a quiet place with astonishing views of the desert and the stars, this is the spot. The house is super cozy and the giant projector tv is a great way to relax at night if you're not stargazing in the hot tub. Homestead Modern was super responsive to all questions we had during our stay. Make sure to leave the blinds open at night, so you wake you up to the incredible sunrise over the mountains. It's wild!

Our time at Atomic Ranch was spectacular. The property is very private, perfectly furnished with a comfortable bed and sofa, and the kitchen is stocked with everything needed to prepare meals, which we did most nights. The hot tub is divine and the stars can’t be beat.

My husband and I had a wonderful holiday trip at Homestead Modern. The views and amenities were incredible. A truly “off-the-grid,” relaxing experience.

Breathtaking views! What a fabulous home to reconnect with nature, stargaze, and enjoying some peace and quite. Be sure to bring plenty of groceries and snacks, once you’re there you likely won’t want to leave. The space is clean, organized, has fantastic amenities, and the hosts are kind and responsive. We drove a small sedan and made it just fine, but if you have a truck or jeep, it would be better. Highly recommend arriving with some daylight, we made the drive after sunset and it was quite the adventure getting to the home in the dark.

It was absolutely breathtaking! Every little detail was on point and special. It was the most perfect birthday experience and trip I’ve ever had. Relaxing in the hot tub while watching the stars and sunsets will forever be my favorite memory.

Duuuuuude- this place was beyond magical. My wife and I stayed 4 days and we were both in awe of this little gem. How did the homeowners pack this much into a place that is completely off the grid? They thought of everything! Granted- if you need a store nearby or hate being completely alone this NOT the place for you. It is remote. But if you just want to enjoy solitude, nature, each other, incredible sunrises/ sunsets, chill to some good tunes in a hot tub overlooking a gorgeous vista…you’re Gucci. You will LOVE this place. We loved the place so much we didn’t even leave the property one day. Just soaked it all in. One tip- the listing says you can easily access the home with a 2 wheel drive vehicle. Technically this is true- but it should not be recommended. The road is full of ruts, rocks and very harsh bumps in the sand and dirt. We booked a BMW convertible and barely made it up there. Book a truck/jeep. But def book this place!!

We understand that the remoteness of our location might not be for everyone, but we are delighted that it resonated with you and provided the perfect setting for a peaceful retreat. Your description of chilling in the hot tub while enjoying the vista and soaking in the overall experience is exactly what we hope our guests will take away from their stay.We appreciate your feedback about the road conditions. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the accessibility. It's true that the road to our property is rustic, and we appreciate your honesty about the challenges it presented, especially with a 2-wheel drive vehicle. One of our wonderful team members often travels to and from the property in a Tesla sedan without much drama, but we value the comment nonetheless!

This place was epic to say the least. It's secluded, but not so remote that you feel far from civilization. The home had an easy check in/out process, everything you would need in the kitchen, comfortable bedding, and amazing views. The hosts were so friendly and very communicative and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. It's the perfect mix of luxury and rustic with modern touches and amenities. It's 10000% worth the money. Did I mention the views?

Really nice place in a very private, secluded location. Tons of amenities and an unbelievable view. Great pool and hot tub, amazing grill. Can get instacart so you can stock up on food with it leaving. Incredible movie / sound system and a guitar too! My only minus is the house has a bunch of human skull decor that feels like you’re in a horror movie a bit, haha. Can be a bit disturbing that far out in the desert alone. But I had a great time, and the hosts are very communicative and friendly.

We are so happy that you loved your stay here John. There are a lot of "ranch style" items at the house, but no human skulls, just a cattle skull the owner loves because of what it symbolizes! With that said, we removed one painting that could be startling for someone arriving at night at the ranch in hopes we don't scare anyone else in the future! To quote Georgia O'Keeffe "bones are as beautiful as anything I know. They are strangely more living than the animals walking around. The bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive in the desert even though it is vast and empty and untouchable.“ For O’Keeffe, the pinnacles and hollows of the weathered cow’s skull were a powerful image of American strength at a time when depression, economic instability and drought were threatening to undermine the very essence of the nation. We love that imagery and hope others do too, and we will try to tell that story better so we don't scare future guests away :) We are excited to welcome you back soon, with some different artwork on the wall. Safe travels!

Our stay at Homestead Modern in Pioneertown was nothing short of magical. We travel frequently for work and find ourselves staying in Airbnb’s on a regular basis all around the country. Within the first few moments of arriving we instantly agreed it was our favorite Airbnb we’ve ever stayed in and we knew we would need to come back. The space is CLEAN and so well thought out. The kitchen is fully stocked allowing you to cook at any capacity. The amenities provided are off the charts. Everything they’ve done is very intentional and contributes to an amazing stay for their guests. Can’t recommend highly enough! We will be back!!

We enjoyed every single part of this house! We are 4 adults group, and there is one couche and a bed. Although, the king sized bed is enough for 3 adults, so we all could sleep. Thank you so much!
