Description Description
Summary Summary
In an enchanting canyon, impressive boulder formations stand sentinel over Hi-Desert Fade-an innovative new home that fuses sleek architecture with artisan warmth. The light gauge steel frame allows the structure to float above the native landscape; the effect lends a sense of weightlessness to the home’s distinct character. The outdoor areas are optimized for enjoyment w/ a cowboy tub style pool, hot tub, bocce court & fire-pit.
Joshua Tree NP -->15 Min Drive
Pappy & Harriet’s -->8 Min Drive
Space Space
Brought to life with the help of Homestead Modern, Hi-Desert Fade sits in a rocky canyon among ancient pinyon pine trees whose roots sustain the trees by following — and further opening — cracks in the rock where water accumulates. Among the diverse fauna dotting the floor of the canyon are desert scrub oaks, Joshua trees, yuccas, cholla, and creosote.

The canyon is sparsely populated and largely undeveloped. The dirt road that leads to Hi-Desert Fade dead ends just to the west, where the canyon abuts on endless wilderness. Members of the small, private community share a deep regard for the serene remoteness and ecological vibrance of the area. The vistas and geologic formations rival the most striking destinations in the National Park.

Hiking opportunities abound and bird watching is remarkably worthwhile throughout the year. Listen carefully after a rain storm — you’ll notice a rare desert soundtrack as waterfalls and washes spring to life. Most winters bring at least a dusting of snow — a surreal sight to behold against the desert landscape.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO USE OF OFF HIGHWAY VEHICLES (OHV) IN THIS AREA.

Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”Beautiful, contemporary home nestled in the rocks. Top of the line outdoor kitchen, most comfortable bed & luxurious linens. Thoughtful touches everywhere. We enjoyed our stay & I would definitely come again.” -Adam

-”The location is perfect, totally secluded with beautiful scenic views. The house is absolutely incredible - so modern and very cozy!" -Amelia

-”You are surrounded by these giant rocks all around you. The cowboy tub and jacuzzi were perfect to spend some time in.The hammocks are great to lay on at night and watch the stars. The house has floor-to-ceiling windows with automatic shades. The views are stunning. It is a beautiful desert!” -Tina

-BEDS & BATHS-
This two bedroom home can comfortably sleep up to 4 guests. Private, adjoining patios and floor to ceiling windows encourage movement between indoor and outdoor spaces. Each bedroom features a California king bed, Parachute Linens, Blacksaw alpaca textiles, and a desk to write or work.
Both bathrooms include walk-in showers, and a washer and dryer are available for any laundry needs. For maximum privacy, the two bedrooms and baths are located on opposite ends of the house.

-KITCHEN & DINING-
The kitchen, dining area and living room are positioned in the open center of the house, where 13 foot ceilings and soaring walls of glass frame the majesty of the desert backdrop.

This kitchen is equipped with a Wolf Range, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher, and the drawers are stocked with dishes and utensils. With Le Creuset bakeware, a Kitchen-aid Mixer, and an abundance of serving trays, this kitchen is a chef’s dream! There’s also a coffee maker, french press and blender so you can whip up your morning beverage of choice.

The warm, wood dining table and Danish Raholt dining chairs accommodate six people. The outdoor dining table is located on the main deck, which extends the length of the house. We recommend at least one meal under the stars; with so little light pollution in the canyon, the night sky’s constellations are especially brilliant.

-LIVING SPACE-
Although you might be tempted to forgo technology during your stay, the living room has a smart TV and bluetooth speaker so you can stream your favorite shows. Prepare a drink at the bar, grab a Phaidon design book, and settle in among vintage bedouin pillows while the sun sets across the boulders.

-OUTDOOR SPACE-
The house offers generous shaded sitting areas outside for comfort, even at the height of summer. A propane fire feature invites guests to pull chairs close for magical nights, even when the weather turns cool.

After a day of activities, follow a short path to a secluded group of boulders where a hot tub awaits, along with a “cowboy tub” — a repurposed galvanized stock tank offering cool dips in warm weather. Hammocks and a Petanque court are scattered in different corners of the property! ATVs and dirt bikes are not allowed on this property and cannot be used off road in this neighborhood.

-ESSENTIALS-
Parking is available for at least 3 vehicles.

The property is equipped with WiFi, heating, and air conditioning.

-ACTIVITIES/ATTRACTIONS-
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 all the action at Hi-Desert Fade. 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.

This house is amazing! Finding it can be a little intimidating at first, but it is so worth the stay. We had some issues out of the control of the host such as the Wi-Fi and dishwasher being out of service due to a recent storm. The host was awesome and communicative about these issues before we arrived and even offered us other housing options which we greatly appreciated. We chose to stick with this house and we’re so happy we did. It is a magical place to stay and we were happy to unplug for a few days.

We're committed to ensuring that such issues are resolved promptly to ensure the comfort of our future guests. It's wonderful to hear that you chose to stick with our house and that you had a amazing stay. We understand the importance of disconnecting and unwinding, and we're thrilled that you were able to do just that during your time with us.

The Homestead Modern property, Hi-Desert Fade, was absolutely stunning . So peaceful, quiet and isolated. We had an issue with the WiFi not working at the property and some ants (which can be expected in the desert). But, they were quick to find a resolution for us and moved us to another Homestead Modern property nearby, which was just as lovely and peaceful. The homes are beautifully decorated in modern simple decor that creates an overall peaceful feeling in the home. There is a fully stocked kitchen, which we loved! I have never seen such a well stocked kitchen at an air bnb. The views from the hot tub are just spectacular during the day and evening. If you feel like you need to get away from the chaos of the city for some peace and rejuvenation but not have to travel too far, Pioneertown is the definitely the right place to be. The customer service was excellent overall. We plan on returning back again to stay at another homestead property soon.

Hi Showshan, We sincerely appreciate your understanding regarding the WiFi issue and the presence of desert ants. As you rightly mentioned, the desert environment does have its quirks, but we are committed to ensuring that such inconveniences do not disrupt your experience. Your patience and flexibility in allowing us to move you to another nearby property are greatly appreciated. We take these issues seriously and will work diligently to address and resolve them to ensure a smoother experience for future guests.

We only have good things to say about this place. The location of the house makes for a peaceful stay and the ability to disconnect and recharge. The surroundings are incredible and being able to stargaze from a hot tub was such a treat. The beds were super comfortable and the house was well equipped with everything we needed whilst staying there. The host was extremely responsive and super helpful when we had a last minute change of plans. We loved the location and design of the house. We really hope we can return soon!

The home was absolutely gorgeous both inside and out ! Felt as if it was built by a truly talented artist. Everything inside the home was super clean and organized. The home had everything we needed and than some , They literally thought of everything ! The surrounding nature of the home made us feel like we were inside a painting of the desert. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come again. Highly recommended!

if you're looking for an amazing place to rest and reset, then look no further. The house, the surroundings, and everything about our stay was exactly what we were looking for. Very responsive host, very clean, lots of amenities, beautiful setting. If there had to be a negative, the only one would be slightly low water pressure in the showers but did not take away from this place being 5/5 stars. My wife and I will be back!

Mollie & Homestead Modern Homes were amazing. They were fantastic hosts, and super responsive and kind. The home was an amazing slice of paradise. It's super modern and right in the middle of beautiful, natural surroundings. We had all the amenities we needed! My spouse and I were able to get away from our busy lives and just relax. I highly recommend Homestead Modern Homes!!

We had a peaceful few days at this property with our toddler. The home is well appointed and has such amazing views/amenities. The sand road on the way in was so much fun and set on a beautiful landscape. The house was exactly how we imagined based on the listing, no surprises. While the space wasn’t 100% toddler friendly (hard surfaces and corners) we made it work. Cell and WiFi were a little spotty but that’s the point of this place…to unwind! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Hi-Desert Fade was absolutely perfect! From the secluded oasis, desert views, and attention to detail throughout the property, they did not skip a beat when designing this architecturally stunning home. I've stayed in several Airbnb's and nothing compares to the superior service of Homestead Modern. From the electric blinds, well-stocked pantry, abundance of cooking utensils, cozy beds, multiple private patios, floor-to-ceiling window views, welcome gift, dog-friendly bed, and bedding, ample outdoor seating, and lounging, private hiking trails in your backyard, outdoor amenities, great air conditioning, and rolling carts to carry your luggage inside they have thought of everything. I cannot say enough great things about this property and the outstanding service other than book extra nights because you will not want to leave this cozy haven. Thank you for the lovely stay, Homestead Modern. :)

The place and area was absolutely gorgeous. Had to wait a few minutes till the cleaning crew left but they left it immaculate and spotless. I brought my dog and they even left a little bed and a couple bowls for him! All the ameneities worked and looked like the pictures. The kitchen was stocked full with everything you need to cook an awesome meal. I’d say the only downside was the small pool was drained and was littered with dead bugs at the bottom so we didn’t care to fill it up. Anyways this is a perfect getaway if you’re looking for some peace and quiet. 10/10 would recommend.

We stayed for a week and the location was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, remote, beautiful. The house is designed and stocked with great attention to detail. The kitchen has everything, which I am always grateful for. The house is modern and beautiful; the outdoor eating and bbq area are lovely, with lights and heaters. I would have stayed another week if I could’ve. Exactly the kind of place to go if you’re looking for a luxurious getaway that is (almost) off the grid and away from the hustle and bustle.

Amazing location to get away and unwind. If you’re looking for solitude and to feel like you’re staying inside the park itself this is the spot. It is a decent drive to town or the park itself but we didn’t mind at all. Perfectly managed as well and stocked with everything you need. Hot tub was amazing, grill worked perfectly, bocce ball was surprisingly fun and relaxing, and we even used the cowboy tub to do cold plunges. Couldn’t recommend more.

Really gorgeous location, well appointed, and private. We had some issues checking in which were a bit annoying (the electric lock didn’t work, there’s no cell service, and we couldn’t communicate via wifi from inside the house). Additionally, one of the toilets was leaking and it took them three days to send someone to fix it, but they did. Would stay with them again because the house and surroundings were beautiful, but know that the little nuisances add up (like few towels and no hand towels, etc). We did let them know that there were no hand towels, but they didn’t send any new ones.
- Review Date: 1/15/2023
Glad this guest loved the property! Water conservation is very important in our region, so we supply our guests with 4 full sets plus additional pool towels, and just ask that if a guest desires more they let us know. We sent someone three times to assist with additional towels & the toilet but the first two times our team was not let into the house to assist by the guest. It was a bit strange for us, but glad we could get it fixed on our third visit and know we will always keep trying!

This is BY FAR the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. The pictures don't do it justice. It is even better in person! We have never seen such beauty. Every view is breathtaking. I couldn't stop taking pictures. You can watch the sunrise from the bed in the mornings and boulder on the other side. Hiking right out your front or backdoor. They have truly thought of every amenity! So much cookware, bar supplies, cheeseboards, spices, coffee etc. The host was super communicative! Easy to get to when you follow their exact instructions. This place is absolutely perfect in every way. We will 100% be returning. Thank you Homestead Modern for making our trip memorable. Booking again today!

Overall, my husband and I had a lovely stay at the High Desert Fade home. The location was amazing (BLM lands all around!) with abundant opportunities for outdoor activities. The home's architecture and interior design were beautiful and peaceful. We also appreciated the mini apple cranberry pie and delicious coffee. There were one or two things we would change about our stay to improve the quality. First, it would be nice if the Homestead Modern team would clean the hot tub after each usage, as we noticed debris in it. Second, the water pressure was very low, which made showering more of a nuisance and less of a pleasurable experience. We could come back to stay at High Desert Fade once these issues are addressed!
- Review Date: 11/28/2022
We are so glad you had a great stay and enjoyed the treats! We service the hot tub twice a week and provide all guests with the service dates, and allow them to adjust if needed. We serviced your hot tub on the second date of your stay but weren’t aware of your desire to have it serviced prior, we apologize. The pressure issue has been addressed and thanks for the feedback so we could make it better for future visits from other guests and hopefully you as well!

My 5 year old son and I had a lovely stay. The property was breathtaking. Once we were settled there was no need to go anywhere. We explored and climbed rocks right from the property. We enjoyed the hot tub, hammocks, bocce ball and board games. The home was very clean and the host was responsive. The kitchen was well stocked. The only issue we had was the hot water pressure was very low. So low that we really couldn’t shower without standing up against the wall and washing shampoo out of my hair was a challenge. Needless to say at this price point that was frustrating. I reached out the host and they apologized stating there was a power outage the week before and that may have affected it but they didn’t send anyone to look at it; although not sure what have could have been done that wasn’t disruptive to our peace. Hopefully it’s been fixed for future guests. Regardless of the water pressure issue we would absolutely stay here again! My only tip is to make sure you don’t forget any ingredients for meals. There is no delivery and it’s a a bit of a drive to the store if you need anything. Also if you think you might need extra towels for showers I suggest asking in advance as there is only 1 towel provided per guest. Heads up, the parking is a short walk to the front door. The hosts provide a wagon for your belongings but it was a surprise to me. It may have been listed in the description and I just missed it. We will be back!

Wow ? words cannot describe how phenomenal this home is. It was an awesome reset for both my partner and I and we felt right at home. Spent the day exploring the backyard and driving down the road to Red Dog Saloon for afternoon tacos. Both morning and evenings were spent watching sunrise/sunset. We look forward to visiting this home again soon, as many memories were made…Thank you Homestead Modern for sharing this hidden gem near Pioneertown ?

This was such an awesome place beyond any words I could say or write. The owners thought of every thing in terms of amenities and comfort. The quality of everything in the house inside and out is top notch. The property is a private, magical canyon full of beautiful boulders and desert flora. We loved the architecture, furniture, indoor/outdoor feel (with all the windows) and peace and quiet. The special touches for guests were everywhere in the house...for example the hot tub was ready to use! We are looking forward to coming back to this beautiful property!

My boyfriend and I had the best time here! The location is perfect, totally secluded with beautiful scenic views. The house is absolutely incredible - so modern and very cozy! The beds are so comfortable, hadn’t slept that well in a while. The hosts were so helpful and answered any questions we had in under an hour. We booked our next stay while we were at the house, literally fell in love with it. We can’t wait to come back again! Highly recommend!!

The home is great. We loved the area it sits in. You are surrounded by these giant rocks all around you. The cowboy tub and jacuzzi were perfect to spend some time in. The hammocks are great to lay on at night and watch the stars. The house has floor-to-ceiling windows with automatic shades. The views are stunning. It is a beautiful desert! Make sure you get all the house rules and instructions before arriving. Cell service is minimal, but you will have wifi available. Communication was great, they answered all my questions. I will be coming back for sure.

Amazing accomodation with a lot of space and very well equipped, especially the kitchen, but we also enjoyed the barbeque, the cowboy tub and the hammocks around the house.

The location is epic, and you feel like you're in the National Park. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are incredibly comfortable. I second the other reviews about the house's privacy. From the pictures, it's hard to tell that the house is exposed and can be seen from the road, especially at night with lights on. The hottub/pool area is also visible. However, we were there on a holiday weekend and only a few cars drove by. Overall, it felt private and remote.

Everything was seriously perfect. This home has everything you need and more. I stayed with my boyfriend and another couple, perfect size for a party of 4 - spa, pool, full kitchen. Hosts are so attentive and want you to have the most comfortable stay. You are surrounded by the most beautiful scenery and boulders - there are full length windows in every spot of the house. Just amazing. :) It was so remote and peaceful, the home is truly secluded. Just you and the views. The pictures show it all, but it’s even more beautiful in person. Thank you for our stay!

This was the BEST AirBnB experience that I have ever had. This home is architecturally stunning and perfectly situated in its surroundings. Every detail has been thought of and it feels like a luxurious hotel, yet a cozy home at the same time. You'll honestly will want to enjoy every second of your stay at home because there is no reason to leave! I hope to be able to enjoy this beautiful place again, and eventually experience other listings that Homestead Modern has to offer!

This house is fabulous. The view of the boulders is really breathtaking. It is very well designed - the large tall sliding glass doors slide effortlessly. The few small cabins in the distance were not an issue. Kitchen is super very well equipped. A wagon was provided to haul things from the parking area to the house. It is well worth the drive down the bumpy dusty road to stay at this gem.

We had a fantastic stay at this gorgeous property! It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, far away from civilization: however, it is very easy to get to. The hosts were fantastic - very responsive and accommodating. During our stay we never left the property. There was plenty to explore in the surrounding area and activities to keep busy: bocce ball, hot tub, cowboy tub, reading/relaxing in the 4 hammocks, outdoor fire pit, grilling, stargazing, Netflix movies, cooking in the gourmet kitchen, etc. Don't miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Our little pug loved it too!!

This is an extraordinary property. Much of it has to do with the location, which is surreal — like being on another planet. The house is remote and totally immersed in a landscape of boulders. If you need to escape and feel at one with a desert scene, this is perfect. The light from sunrise to sunset will not disappoint — it's the star of the show here, and the house was designed to take it in. There are other houses visible from the house, which might not be apparent from the photos, but this did not take away from the privacy felt here at all, which is heightened by the journey on the dirt road to get here (fairly easy to drive). Beyond the location, the house itself is remarkable and the details and attention that have been committed here are stellar. This felt like staying at a high-end hotel, with everything considered for the guests, but not "over-designed" in any way. We can't wait to return — thank you for a beautiful stay.

Very nice place with one of a kind views. The house was the perfect size and had the modern amenities for an upscale retreat to nature. Glad I filled up my tires and alignment, if you are not used to driving on unpaved roads you will be soon, and it wasn't a problem for my Sedan. Best feature was the excellent views on both sides of the house making or lots of excellent spots

Best Airbnb Ever - I can't say enough good things about this wonderful home. Everything inside is topnotch and high qualify from the kitchen appliances to the furniture - even the beds are comfy. But let's be real, the best part of this house is the incredible scenery and how the home embraces it. The views from all rooms are stunning. You will be blown away by how the rocks change color at sunrise and sunset. Sitting in the hottub, looking up at the stars is a must. Pioneertown is ten minutes away and Yucca Valley about 20. I wish we could have stayed another day. I hated to leave! Don't miss this amazing stay!

We had a stupendous 5 days at Hi-Desert Fade! The house and the surrounding canyon far exceeded our expectations. The only downside was that it was hard to leave each morning to explore Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. We hurried back each afternoon to scamper around the canyon and enjoy the hot tub and gorgeous views! Our 21 yr. old son, who is hard to impress, is now plotting ways to spend more time in the desert! We can't wait to return!

Gorgeous spot, cannot recommend this place enough. The house is stocked with all the little luxuries and good quality appliances you could only dream of. It really made us stay home and cook rather than eat out. The canyon is super private we felt like we had it all to ourselves. The outdoor space has so much to offer, we never really wanted to leave to explore any place else. We have a dog and he loved it! They offered extra blanket for dog, poop bags and lint roller, didn't give us any crazy restrictions (which many places do in our experience). This was a massive bonus for us, especially with such high standard of furnishings throughout the house, to feel comfortable with our dog. We came in the off season so the prices were extremely reasonable for what we were getting, almost a steal! 10 out of 10 recommend this place to anyone looking for a secluded luxurious getaway. Such a peaceful spot surrounded by stunning boulders and Joshua trees. Desert vacation at it's best.

Hi-Desert Fade is a truly exceptional Airbnb! The location is fantastic! The remote location, surrounded by mountains of boulders is truly magical! The modern house had every amenity we could want. The floor-to-ceiling windows let the unbelievable view surround us! Beds were so comfortable! The placement of the two bedrooms at either end of the house was perfect! Beautiful bathrooms, superbly furnished kitchen! Every thing was top-of-the-line! The outside amenities were fantastic as well! We grilled out every night, and ate as the moon rose over the desert - just magical! The "cowboy tub" was perfect for taking a dip after hikes at Joshua Tree NP. We loved making s'mores around the outdoor fire circle! Having stayed in Airbnbs around the world, I would say this is one of the very best!! Highly recommend if you want to disconnect, relax, and enjoy the desert!

This home is as beautiful and luxurious as it appears in the photos. What the photos won't tell you is how unbelievably thoroughly the upscale kitchen is stocked. You could easily bake or cook anything your heart desired, only bringing the ingredients. It's a gorgeous, quiet setting, but as other have mentioned, it's very remote with not a lot of access to the outside world. We found it refreshing to be disconnected form work and responsibilities but sometimes couldn't even get calls or texts to go through. Check in and out were a breeze. We had one issue, sent an email, and the hosts immediately sent someone to take care of it and all was remedied. If you're looking to unplug and get off the grid while living in the lap of luxury, this is your spot.

I had one of the best birthday weekends here, at first I felt the price was a bit high but the experience was so unique and incredible. While the house itself was very stylish and modern, extremely clean, and well equipped - it’s the location that was mind blowing. We had first planned to go on a hike on nearby trails but we never even had to leave the property to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We took a stroll right and climbed a few rocks and were able to see the vast landscape right from our backyard. I’ve never seen so many stars in my life, never knew there were so many shooting stars every night. I must have seen 10 in just the two nights we stayed. Laying in the jacuzzi taking in the night sky was such a special moment. We did plenty of cooking and the kitchen is so well stocked with Wolf appliances and cookware. And the beds were so comfortable!! Can’t forget about the 4 hammocks and the bocce ball set up either. A perfect weekend on such an incredible property.
