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 Estrella Perdida. 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 this 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 wife and I had such a great time. We stayed for only three nights but we should’ve stayed for 5 nights at least. This place is so peaceful that you won’t hear any kind of noise, you’re only 3 minutes away from the Main Street but far enough to enjoy the silence and privacy. I highly recommend staying at Estrella perdida, you wont regret.

We didn't want our stay at Estrella Perdida to end. I never slept so well - te bed and sheets and comforter were incredibly comfortable. We felt so detached - no sounds of traffic or sirens, dogs barking, or people on the street or in the hall. Yet, it's not so remote as to feel unsafe. Only two restaurants deliver, but we went grocery shopping the first day and had groceries delivered twice, and cooked every day. We stayed here in January, but the daytime highs were in the 50s and 60s, and we even used the outdoor grill. We walked around the five-acre lot and up and down the road exploring the plants and animal tracks every day. We never grew tired of our view from high above the desert valley and the ring of rocky mountains in every direction. The sunsets were breathtaking, and we bundled up and went out to look at the star-filled sky every night. Of course we spent time in the national park as well and the wonderful Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum. We hope to return soon!

Our family of four loved our stay Estrella Perdida and highly recommend! The house is in a very quiet, remote area with gorgeous views. The house is wonderfully spacious and the modern design is gorgeous. The hosts are quick to respond and very friendly. The electric coffee maker wasn't working properly so I reached out via text and within a few hours, the property manager provided a replacement. We appreciated that! Everything was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We can't wait to return.

Had an awesome time at this Airbnb! The house had this cool mix of modern vibes and eco-friendly vibes that we loved. Super comfy with stylish art and furnishings. The bedrooms were spacious, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Actually, it is beyond what we could think of. Very thoughtful with a little detail finish touched made our stay even more pleasant. The outdoor setup was a blast, especially the firepit and it even has a bed. The location was spot-on, not too far from the Joshua Tree National Park. And how cool is it that they're all about off-grid living? Overall, our stay was a totally perfect vacation – highly recommend it for a laid-back and stylish getaway!

One note about the description - it says there is a cowboy pool however, it is a tub not a pool & what was confusing is that there actually was a cowboy pool on the property - but it was empty…so if it is not winter & you are hoping for a pool - suggest you confirm before booking
- Review Date: 10/23/2023
We're truly sorry to learn that the description of the "cowboy pool" may have caused confusion and didn't meet your expectations. We'd like to clarify that the cowboy tub was indeed filled and ready for use during your stay. It's equipped with a filter and has a cover on it, as mentioned in our listing and check-in instructions. In fact, the property manager even went above and beyond by sending us a video of the tub on the 9th to confirm its readiness. We understand that you noticed a larger tub on the property and wished for it to be filled for your stay, given its size. While the cowboy tub was available and prepared, we regret any misunderstanding that may have arisen regarding the choice of tub. In the future, we encourage our guests to reach out to us during their stay if they encounter any issues or if something doesn't meet their expectations. Our primary goal is to ensure that every guest enjoys a comfortable and pleasant experience, and we are always ready to promptly address any concerns or assist in clarifying situations. Your comfort and relaxation are our top priorities.

This is the second time my friends and I stayed at this place and the reason is we had an amazing stay the first time which was few months ago and that made us book this place again. I strongly recommend this place and for sure will get back to this place for another stay later. Communication with property manager, cleanliness, peace and quiet, amenities and comfort are getting 5 star ranting

One of the most beautiful homes I’ve stayed in. Not one thing will disappoint you. I hope I’m able to come back soon. I think Joshua trip just might be a monthly trip I need in my life and it needs to be this house every time.

My experience with Homestead Modern was amazing. The house itself was beautiful and so intentionally crafted to meet every guest’s needs. The host also is very active and always willing to go the extra mile for their guest. Even small touches like having coloring books and pencils.

A gorgeous place for a visit to Joshua Tree. Private with wide open vistas in every direction. Comfortable, well appointed, and beautifully decorated. I will be back for sure!

Had a great stay here! Here's what stood out: - Privacy. This Airbnb was really private and didn't have many neighbors. It does have a few neighbors, but they are rather far away. I definitely didn't hear them. - Views. We had great 180 views over a valley. Sunrises and sunsets are fantastic. - Cleanliness/amenities. This Airbnb was really clean and modern. We didn't find any amenities to be missing. - No issues with power or Wifi. I was slightly concerned that power or Wifi could go out given that the house is on solar. We never had issues with the power while we were there, even when using many appliances.

The location was perfect for us. We loved walking through the neighborhood and just relaxing with the view. This is one of the most enjoyable kitchens I’ve cooked in. Homestead Modern has done a wonderful job appointing it and was very responsive to our needs.

We loved our stay. Unfortunately we did have an issue with water during our stay and I think Homestead Modern handled it properly and fairly. It does seem like this is a common issue for this property and I would make sure that it is fixed before booking. It is such a beautiful home. The outside bed on the patio was definitely a highlight for us. The isolated area was our other favorite part; you can walk up the road behind the house and access the national park. Would definitely choose to stay here again.

Incredible stay at an incredible property. The property had everything we could ever want for a week-long escape. Immaculately clean and well designed along with comfortable amenities. Peaceful and private location, with gorgeous scenery. We look forward to staying here again, along with other properties managed by this host.

Easy check-in and quick access to the park. Too cool for the outside amenities but all in all a great place to stay. We'd come back without question.

Troisième séjour à Joshua Tree et c’était sans aucun doute mon logement préféré. La situation est parfaite, isolée mais proche des commerces, restaurants et de l’entrée du parc JT. La vue est magnifique à 360°, il n’y a pas le moindre bruit. La maison est parfaitement équipée, très confortable et décorée avec bon goût. J’ai adoré mon séjour et je recommande vivement ce logement si vous êtes en quête de calme et de repos.

We had a great stay at this property! The check in process was easy even though we arrived towards the end of the check-in window. No issues with any of the amenities although we did run out of power on the first night after 11pm due to heavy rains preventing the solar panels from fully charging the batteries. We reached out to the host and they responded quickly to resolve the problem. We had no other issues the rest of the weekend. Beautiful location and scenery very close to the park. Would return again for another stay!

You were a joy to host and we appreciate your understanding of the solar issues in this off grid house in the worst storm of the season! Thank you for being gracious and a part of our sustainability efforts! Please come visit again.

Absolutely loved it. Perfect for our family of 4 and two dogs to unwind and be together. Extremely peaceful location, well thought out layout and a comforting minimalist style, yet have every single thing we needed. Would’ve loved one more chair option in the living room. The record player was an amazing touch, beds superbly comfortable and appreciated high quality linens and towels. Will definitely stay again at this gem!

Really lovely place to stay near Joshua Tree National Park. We had everything we needed and were super comfortable here. Probably the most well-stocked kitchen of any Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. My dog loved it too. As it says in the listing, there are occasional power outages but the electricity would usually kick back on momentarily. The WiFi was surprisingly fast, though we had one night where the internet went down for a few hours but that was to be expected—we played some board games to pass the time.

Had a great time during our stay! Was our first time staying off the grid so it took us some time to adjust to getting used to energy usage and thinking about the appliances we are running and what we have plugged in. Overall the home was wonderful and just what we were looking for during our stay!

Man… me and my team needed a real retreat after a hectic few months of work. We were exhausted, and desperately needed a reset. I can tell you how happy we are we chose this home. They presented everything we needed and then some! The attention to detail on the house is incredible. The glass walls that stretch across the home make the beautiful outside view feel like a painting you can’t stop looking at. The space was comfortable, beautiful, and peaceful. We stopped by the grocery store, loaded up on food, and didn’t leave the house for four days. The outside area is dynamic with a lot of different spaces to enjoy the landscape. This home was exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely stay again.

Amazing spot! Great location—not too remote but off the beaten path enough for privacy, access to nearby towns and the park, optimal sunset viewing, and perfect for stargazing.

Great house in Joshua Tree!!! Extremely clean with fantastic views!! Grill and fire table were a nice add-on, especially on the cooler nights. Beautiful artwork on the side of the house, and the swing was so peaceful in the morning/evening. Some of the best sunrises and sunsets I’ve seen in JT. Property photos are a bit deceiving as it appears it’s literally in the middle of nowhere…but there are actually a few houses/close neighbors that the photos do not display, which was literally the only disappointment in an otherwise BEAUTIFUL house.

Our stay at this listing was phenomenal. We had such a peaceful and enjoyable time on our little getaway. The location and surroundings were just what we needed for some serenity. I would also like to mention that the cleanliness of the house was immaculate. The amenities were very convenient that the host of Modern Homestead provided for us. Overall we look forward to booking future stays with Modern Homestead listings, while visiting the high desert. Great job at making your guests feel welcomed at their home away from home.

Estrella Perdida definitely made our visit to Joshua Tree National Park perfect. We loved how remote it felt, very isolated and quiet, but still close enough to the park to head over a couple of times easily in a day. Gorgeous design elements, but the wall of windows to watch the landscape change with the time of day was my favorite part! The kitchen had all necessary tools/dishes, they thought of almost everything. We only used the main bedroom/bathroom, being only the two of us, but the mattress was super comfy and the shower and tub were super luxurious ! We were surprised at how easy living off grid was, the only inconvenience noted was the hair dryer ampere issue. I tripped a fuse trying to dry my hair, but that was avoidable the next time I had to wash. Great stargazing opportunities right outside our door, and the fire pit was a fun way to warm up in the evening.

Off-Grid with Modern Comforts. We loved our stay at Estrella Perdida, a completely isolated property that is truly off the grid. Huge views from the home that are particularly great at night and live up to the “Lost Star” name. The house is new, well-designed and extremely comfortable so it is a true oasis in the desert.

The house is spacious and clean. It’s a great place for the family or a group of friends. The house is pretty isolated so you have the entire desert view yourself. The host is very easy to communicate and respond quickly. Definitely will recommend to friends.
