Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”This amazing house, which sits on five (5!) acres, fully enfolds you in the warm arms of the desert. The house looks like a mid-century you would find in Palm Springs and is completely contemporary inside-the rooms were elegantly furnished and the amenities were beyond what I expected.” -Mary

-”We loved this property! Beautiful view, easy access to the park entrance, and extremely clean, comfortable, well designed, and stocked with basics.” -Laura

-”I've stayed in Airbnbs all over the world and this one is by far one of my favorites. From the beautiful Floor Plan and decor to the luxurious sheets this place is literally an oasis!” -Jayne

*Saltwater pools are gentler on the eyes, hair, and clothing. The chlorine in saltwater pools is created naturally rather in a man-made fashion, you won’t have the same harsh chlorine smell. Salt-chlorinated pool water is silkier and leaves your skin feeling less dried out than traditionally chlorinated pool water does.

-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 Highlands Retreat. 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.

You will have the entire house and property to yourself.
Neighborhood Neighborhood
Joshua Tree Highlands is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the area given its close proximity to the national park as well as its forever northerly vistas of the Mojave Desert. Though you’ll feel like you’re far from civilization, this area sits just a few minutes’ drive from shops and restaurants in Joshua Tree Village and Yucca Valley. Joshua Tree BLM stretches (South) behind the house providing an escapers dream with the natural desert landscape, native flora and active wildlife. The Highlands community have beautiful vistas, quiet days and dark star-filled nights. In short, a contemplative alternative to the noise, bustle, and visual clutter of urban life.

Convenient location to JTNP. We enjoyed the hot tub & the infinity pool w/a nice view. Beds were comfortable, however, it was impossible to rid of bugs. Hear them flying around once lights were out. We had tons of bites as souvenirs. Then there was the uninvited “guest”. Upon waking Fri morning, we discovered chewed up food we left out overnight, mouse poop trails on counters & floors. Informed the host and one mouse trap was provided. Fri evening, a mouse ran out from under the fridge to the island and scurried back after I screamed my head off. We placed the trap in front of fridge but nothing was caught overnight. Sat, there was a stench but nothing inside the trap. We turned on air and informed the host. Dinner or breakfast was offered for the inconvenience but nobody came out to investigate nor remove the “guest”. We stayed inside our rooms with rolled up towels stuffed to the door to block the rodent out during the night. Unfortunately, a rodent issue but still great stay!

This was a great little trip for us. My Wife wanted us to go somewhere for my Birthday where we did not have to drive anywhere and chill, and that is what we did. Fantastic property. The floorplan is perfect. The owners spent much time and money getting all the little things right for their guests. Many little details were added that we would not have thought of ourselves. We love cooking and rarely eat out, so Airbnb is great for us—a great kitchen with everything we need. We loved the yoga deck, the fire pit, the hot tub, and the pool. Playing ping pong at night with the doors open was fun for us as a way to unwind. We loved the view and sat there drinking wine or coffee, looking out into the valley. The weather was perfect also and we met some wildlife there that became our little friends. haha. I can't wait to go back.

Our family had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the beautiful setting and lounging in the pool and hot tub. The house was incredibly well-stocked, the amenities were superb and in great shape and the place looked even better in person than in the photos. Check in was easy and straightforward and the electric car charger was very easy to use. All in all, it was a great stay and we will look to be back on future visits to Joshua Tree.

Our stay was short but really enjoyable and we plan to come back to have more time to enjoy all the amenities. The only concern is that the blinds throughout the home were extremely see through and at night it feels like a fish bowl. Gorgeous property and home though!

A magical place with and amazing vibe. Everything was just like the description and the photos. Very clean overall. We just had some minor detail’s, but we had a great time. The house is so close to the entrance off the park that makes you feel that you are inside. I think the view is what makes this place incredible.

My college friends and I had come to Indio for Powertrip but decided to stay away from the madness of the desert in the beautiful yucca valley and Joshua Tree. This particular property was just what we needed after 6 hours of heavy metal concerts. The layout, the natural beauty around us, the infinity pool, the well equipped kitchen and living spaces all made for a great place to relax all afternoon and get charged before another evening rocking out! Plenty of great restaurants around as well, the wifi was good, subscriptions to sports on the TV all made for a good setup. My only only issue was the road leading up to the house - Lilley Rd. - was basically a dirt road with no markings and with two of my friends having bad backs, the quarter mile from the main road in either direction took 10 min at a crawl. A lower smaller vehicle could have spelt trouble our 4WD SUV made it workable. Overall though I give this house 5 stars and would love to come back with family and friends!

We had a great stay.. amazing location, very nice - well equipped - house. Unfortunately the hot tub wasn’t working - which was communicated well in advance and a restaurant voucher was provided instead - so good solution in the end. Only gripe is that none of the bedrooms have any proper curtains - so no need to set an alarm as you’ll wake up nice and early!

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary trip and everything about the home and it’s surroundings was perfect! The house has lots of amenities - we especially appreciated having a fast charger for our EV. The space was clean and the pool was amazing. The pool water was very warm in September. Beautiful backyard view and close to Joshua Tree park entrance. Lots of board games and bed supplies for a bigger group to enjoy, but just as cozy and comfortable for a couple. Highly recommended!

This is a beautiful private home in the hills of Joshua Tree. Beautiful infinity pool and very cozy home for a relaxing get away. Responsive and accommodating host. Would definitely stay again!

Property is absolutely beautiful. Do not hesitate for a second to book it. I only wish that I had chosen a 3-night trip instead of 2. The property has a gorgeous view that can be enjoyed from anywhere in the backyard (including the infinity pool). Every time we visit JT, we find ourselves eating at the usual joints in town. This time, we really wanted to hang out at the property as much as possible to enjoy all the amenities. I will definitely be back.

We were just a small family of three so it felt like we were underutilizing the space but it was such a lovely place to stay that the trip became less about getting out and more about settling in. Once you’re fortified you may not want to leave! Being close to the park made it easy to do a little or a lot and the proximity to town made getting creature comforts a ten minute drive. Highly recommend this space and it’s compound like property! Would definitely stay here again. Great for families and friends alike.

The photos don’t do it Justice. Not only is the home beautifully curated, photos don’t adequately capture the landscape it’s situated in. The views are other worldly and the home has everything you might need to stay entertained. The pool looks smaller in the photos than in real life. It’s the perfect size for a couple or a family with children. The wading ledge is a lovely way to balance the heat. We hope to return soon!

We had beautiful views of the surrounding area. The pool was a nice temperature and the jacuzzi felt heavenly. We enjoyed our time in this home. Wished we had more time, but overall I would definitely recommend this Airbnb to others.

We rented the house for my mom's birthday and had an amazing time! We soaked in the pool during the day and watched the moon rise every night from the back porch. The house had everything we needed. The birthday celebration was a success and we'd definitely book again. Looking forward to the next stay!

This is the best airbnb I have stayed in in the Joshua Tree area. Modern, clean, private and the amenities are second to none. The hosts were extremely responsive and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable. 10/10 experience. I will be back!

If I could exceed 5 stars I would, we wanted to continue extending our stay because it was so dang hard to leave! If you read the instructions the ride shouldn’t feel as bumpy. I celebrated my birthday weekend so I walked in on a gifted wine (white wine which was thoughtful since it’s my fav!) and a custom letter wishing me a great stay. The location is so private and safe, spacious and well-kept. All of the amenities went above and beyond. From the infinite pool that was so clean, hot tub, outdoor table for intimate dinners and a fire pit and barbecue. We had a private chef come and she was even surprised to find so many utensils and cooking appliances. The additional fans were great for the extra hot days. Robes for baths and showers were such a plus as we winded down during the night. The additional garage area had a laundry room, board games and a place to workout and meditate if you wanted a semi indoor/outdoor area. We were supposed to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 4??

Absolutely divine! From the moment we arrived to our departure, everything about our stay was extraordinary. Homestead gave very clear directions to get to the house and checkin was easy. The home was spotless inside and out, bed was also comfy! Landscaping gorgeous, lighting all around the property gave such a wonderful nighttime ambience. The kitchen was super stocked with all we needed to make two glorious meals during our stay. The pool. Just wow. Breathtaking views, crystal Clear and the perfect temperature. The jacuzzi - double wow! Such a great way to unwind under the stars. The outdoor shower was also a plus and had hot water! We travel to the desert several times a year and have stayed in tons of Airbnb’s from Palm Springs to Yucca Valley, this is by far the most amazing stay yet (and all of our other places have been top notch!). Additionally, Homestead was super helpful, responsive to questions, and we even booked massages through their app and what a great experience. ??????

I've stayed in Airbnbs all over the world and this one is by far one of my favorites. From the beautiful Floorplan and decor to the luxurious sheets this place is literally an oasis! Everything you need to enjoy the epic surrounding desert and close to Joshua tree park. We wanted a place that was secluded and with fun games and a clean jacuzzi and pool, we had many choices to chill and relax. The kitchen is completely stocked built for a chef. This place checks all the boxes and the price is rediculous for what you get. The staff was communicative and friendly! Stay here! You won't be dissapointed!!

Beautiful and very well stocked home. We loved the ping pong table and game room. Kitchen was perfectly setup and stocked for cooking. Beds were comfy and home was very clean. Only minor downside was despite the listing stating that no pool construction would occur during our stay, there was work performed on the pool one day during our visit. Looks like the pool should be completed soon and will no longer be an issue.

Wow! This place is perfect!!! It had an amazing outdoor space with a hot tub and a beautiful pool. The location was quiet and secluded yet so close to Joshua Tree National Park (5 minute drive). The interior was just a beautiful as the outside; super clean and had everything you could need in the kitchen. I loved all the small things that were included like Alexa’s (perfect white noise for the kiddos), humidifiers, motion activated night lights, and space ceiling projector. Would highly recommend!!!

Gorgeous modern peaceful home in the middle of Joshua Tree Park. Stunning views, super comfy beds and every amenity one could want. The last road up to the house is a bit rough but it was no problem for us and was worth the views and privacy. When a small issue came up at the house, homestead handled it quickly and professionally which we really appreciated. They were always a pleasure to work with and they always responded immediately. I would stay here again in a heartbeat (location was perfect) plus I want to make my next home a carbon copy of this one!

I loved this house! In a perfect location just a few miles from the park entrance (you can see the entrance and line of cars from the house), on a nice little private 5 acres of land to explore, spotless house with everything there (really appreciated the flashlights and first aid supplies), and great soap and linens. They’ve thought of everything and it shows.

We spent five days at this gorgeous house. The surroundings are stunning and secluded; felt like being in the park itself, which is anyway very nearby so you can reach the best hike trials early before they get busy. The evenings at the house were particularly magical: clear, open skies for star-watching and having the hot tub was super luxe. We even saw wildlife coming by from the terrace. Lots of effort has been made to curate secluded spaces in & around the house's grounds, e.g. the little trail up to the seats on the side of the mountain, perfect for meditation or quiet reflection even when staying with a group. At the same time we appreciated the wifi working well when we needed it! Modern, well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms, stocked with eco-friendly products. We were lucky as the weather in January was perfect for exploring the park, we did the Lost Horse Mine Loop which was c.2 hours, amazing views & historical artefacts, and within a 30-min drive from the house.

What an amazing place! The home was beautiful, modern and tranquil. It's literally on the edge of Joshua Tree Park. I would come again, but the host has a lot of other great looking properties I might try. Clear rooms, fully stocked kitchenware and appliances. Great views, super private, game room is a great addition. We didn't hear or see anyone the whole time. Internet worked fine, maybe 3mbps tops. TMobile cell coverage was low, but worked for calls, text and wifi cameras monitoring.

Thank you for hosting us. I would recommend you change your smart lock with new ones which is more easier to understand and that you can open guest door trough your phone if there any issues, because we had hard time waiting outside with small kids at night, and it’s was super cold . Also it’s will be good for guests to get their answers faster instead of waiting hours. Overall we had good time staying there everything else was good

Parvina was responded to within 5 minutes each time, airbnb and she both confirmed it was not hours. She didnt follow our directions on how to best arrive at the house, taking a wrong route which put her in a VERY wrong place and thus delays in entering the house. Don't be like Parvina and fib, and please always use helpful driving directions in the desert.

Stunning house in a stunning location. We stayed here with our 2 children and the house has all the space and amenities needed. All the rooms are big and comfortable with lots of natural light, the kitchen is fully kitted out - we cooked all our meals whilst staying here. The outdoor space is lovely to sit out in and enjoy a meal, bathrooms are modern, and the beds are comfy. The kids loved the games room, and we all enjoyed the cowboy tub and hot tub. Location wise, it's remote enough to feel that you have your own space, but not so remote that you feel isolated. I loved waking up early and wandering outside to watch the sunrise. Communication is very prompt and extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here, just book it!

Modern and stunning home! Best Airbnb experience we have ever had! It comfortably fit our family of 5, and was within 8 minutes of Joshua Tree National Park! The host provided very detailed instructions, was incredibly responsive and checked in to make sure we had a wonderful stay. We loved the open plan, the modern appliances, and using Alexa to control the lights and music, while the kids loved the internet, TVs in every room and the game room. It honestly felt like a spa retreat! Having an electric car charger was a game-changer; we didn’t have to worry about where and when to charge. The sunrises and sunsets were absolutely amazing, and they even had a telescope that we used to explore the night sky. Stay here, treat yourself, you won’t regret it. Five stars!

Fantastic location and view. Great privacy. The house is well decorated and functional. The cleaning could have been better though... FYI - (as of the date of this review) there are no tables / chairs to have lunch and dinners outside (too bad given the space available...). Easy check in/out process. Host very easy to communicate with.

This home has breathtaking views of the Joshua Tree landscape, minutes from the National Park. My stay was only two days, but I wish I had longer. This is a very private hillside home, every indoor and outdoor amenity you could imagine (and then some). Outdoor: Jacuzzi, outdoor shower, gas firepit, BBQ area. Inside: Big flat-screens, beautifully modern open floor plan with very large rooms, including the bedrooms. Luxurious ensuite. The kitchen has all the large and small appliances, and is the center of an enormous great room with really special modern furniture and decor. I think this is a fabulous house in a primo desert location and I would not hesitate to book it again.

I live in northern California, where it's cold and overcast much of the time, and so I love Joshua Tree for its warmth and clear desert vistas. This amazing house, which sits on five (5!) acres, fully enfolds you in the warm arms of the desert. The house looks like a mid-century you would find in Palm Springs and is completely contemporary inside. The polished concrete floors kept it naturally cool, the high ceilings kept air circulating; the rooms were elegantly furnished and the amenities were beyond what I expected. Homestead Modern is a great host; before my stay, they inquired about what treats I might like, and I chose tea, only to find an array of tea and accoutrements when I got there. The understated elegance and juxtaposition of the polished interior against the wild acreage is perfect. Sitting out in the hot tub at night and watching the night sky is like seeing a black velvet tapestry strewn with sparkling diamonds. Light pollution just doesn't exist, and the serenity of the inner and outer spaces in this home make it a destination I will find myself drawn to again. Lastly, thoughtful design details, like the shower right beside the hot tub, set this home apart. I seriously recommend it for leaving stress behind. That said, the house also met all my tech needs, so you can isolate as much or as little as you like. I only got to stay two nights this visit, but I already know that I will be back. Five Stars to the Team!
