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 Horse Around. 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.

Everything at your fingertips and more, when you book with us today!

• The Integratron (25-minute drive) - New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.

• Palm Springs (45-minute drive) - Artsy town known for vintage shopping, art galleries, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

The host is ever so accommodating. The boulders are unique and you can see so many different shapes and figures. I even left my glasses there and the host was kind enough to contact me and send it to me. Lovely pool and Amazing place!

Horse Around is another incredible space by the team at Homestead Modern. The house and surrounding area are incredibly beautiful and the space feels like it belongs with the landscape. There are so many fun touches in the house and on the property. The space was spotless and exactly as advertised. The hosts are very friendly and responsive. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. This is the second place we’ve stayed at by Homestead Modern and it will definitely not be the last. They are amazing!

Had a wonderful stay at Horse Around by Homestead Modern. The home was the perfect desert retreat. Property was comfortable, clean, and outfitted with a well stocked kitchen. The pool, hot tub, gas fire pit, and EV charger were great amenities! Homestead Modern was extremely communicative and provided thorough check in and check out instructions. Tip for future guests- read the check in info/ door combination prior to arrival, when you have service (in town), as cell service was spotty at the home (no issues once connected to the home wifi network). Though neighboring property was a distance away, there was a clear view from the pool area- so as the instructions mentioned, be mindful of noise, as sound carries in the desert ? Would definitely stay here again!

Romantic stay!
We had a great stay at horse around! We loved watching the wildlife and swimming in the pool! We had a great weekend celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. It's private, quiet, relaxing and romantic. We were worried about finding town and food but its only 10 mins away or less.

We had a romatic stay to celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary! It was private and peaceful. We loved watching the wildlife and using the pool- day and night. We had a beautiful weekend. We loved this home is in the boulders. It is stunning. We stayed cool inside and in the pool even in summer. We found groceries and yummy places to eat only 10 minutes away! They were super helpful, kind, and responsive.

Not as secluded as the pictures would make you believe: there’s a neighboring property overlooking the pool. Other than that exactly as described and a great experience overall.

Die Unterkunft ist modern und gut ausgestattet. Es gibt einen Grill, Waschmaschine & Trockner, Plattenspieler, ein paar Gesellschaftsspiele sind ebenfalls vorhanden. Für den Pool stehen außerdem Badetücher und Bademäntel zur Verfügung. Sauberkeit war in Ordnung, hätte an der ein oder anderen Stelle noch besser sein können. Die Kommunikation lief reibungslos und alle Informationen wurden im Vorfeld reichlich zur Verfügung gestellt. Wir haben hier eine tolle Zeit verbracht und kommen gerne wieder.

The Homestead Modern house in Yucca valley was everything we wanted for our getaway to visit Joshua tree! The location was the right balance of convenience and isolation, and the pool and hot tub was perfect for unwinding after a day of hiking. The kitchen and barbecue were great for cooking a nice dinner in the evenings, and the beds were super comfortable! We would gladly stay here again, a true five star review (disclaimer, the host did ask us for a 5 star review, so consider that while reading others but this was a perfect airbnb experience that exceeded expectations)

This was the perfect birthday getaway. I just wanted something peaceful to relax in. The jacuzzi under the stars was everything i wanted. My friends and i enjoyed running on the property, heading into town for the Saturday market, and dinner at Pappies and Harriet’s. Would 10/10 stay here again. The hosts were incredibly responsive and very nice

This is my second time staying at one of Homestead Modern’s houses and it did not disappoint! The location was perfect - private and serene, nestled up against picturesque boulders, but close enough to all my favorite hot spots (The Copper Room, Tiny Pony, etc). Highly recommend!

Maison magnifique : l’emplacement, la décoration, les équipements (lits supers confortables, serviettes moelleuses, tourne-disque, jeux). L’intérieur est encore mieux que sur les photos. Le meilleur airbnb dans lequel nous avons séjourné! J’espère que nous aurons l’occasion de revenir plus longtemps ?

Truly a beautiful place- wish we stayed longer! From the photos we knew it was an amazing spot, but the energy there was even better in real life. So much room to explore the back yard, close to the town, and this air bnb felt so special with the amazing boulders. Owners were extremely nice and accommodating as well, which made everything seamless! Chic and fun interiors and great natural light. Couldn't recommend more and definitely want to come back xx

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Horse Around house. The home itself is beautiful...every little detail is so thoughtful. The finishings and the furnishings are perfect...someone with a great eye chose everything in this home. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and make ourselves at home. We listened to some great records and played fancy Connect4 and enjoyed lots of quality time in the space. Despite the home being beautiful, the real star of this listing is the outdoor space. Being surrounded by boulders like that was truly magical. Relaxing in the hot tub under the stars in the quiet peace of the desert was really spectacular. Renting this place is a little spendy, but it was definitely worth every penny for such a luxurious, gorgeous home and environment. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We spent five incredible days at Horse Around and truly had the best Airbnb experience of our lives. We stumbled upon this listing whilst looking for a place in the Yucca Valley and were a bit hesitant to book at first, seeing as it was a brand new listing. However, we were quickly sold on the incredible location and from the very first contact, Homestead Modern took away any doubts that we may have had and went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. The house itself is absolutely stunning - everything is brand new, super clean and aesthetically just the nicest place, not cluttered at all, but still so cozy! Beds were super comfortable and the kitchen stocked to perfection. The view from every single window is absolutely breathtaking, too. The biggest selling point though are the outdoor areas and the pool/spa in particular. It really feels like you’re completely by yourself in this beautiful landscape! If you stumble upon this gem, book it now!!

Desert Dreams
Hello fellow wanderers, I recently had the pleasure of staying at the iconic "Horse Around" in Pioneertown—a desert oasis that blends mid-century chic with modern comfort. Perched on the edge of untouched wilderness and surrounded by weathered boulders, "Horse Around" is a mid-century gem meticulously restored in 2023. The original butterfly roof and the blend of California modernism with Scandinavian hygge comforts create an enchanting atmosphere. This 2-bed cabin is a canvas of contemporary living, offering sweeping terrazzo-tiled pool views and numerous seating areas that follow the sun. The heated in-ground pool and spa, surrounded by boulders, provide a sensory floating experience. The fully equipped kitchen, outdoor dining with a propane BBQ, and the mesmerizing outdoor fire-pit complete the experience. The outdoor spaces seamlessly integrate with the desert landscape. The San Pedro cactus garden, the original water towers, and the propane fire-pit area surrounded by native plants add to the charm. The pool and covered lounge area with sun loungers capture majestic views. With Joshua Tree just a 15-minute drive away, "Horse Around" offers both tranquility and accessibility. The full-time, local support team ensures a seamless experience. Thank you very much for the stay. Will be back!!
