Summary Summary
Nestled among the boulders walking distance to the national park, this future Joshua Tree icon was envisioned w/ sustainability in mind. When you approach the structure, you encounter an intriguing horizontal form, flanked by a welcoming, dancing Yucca that shows you the way through a disguised door into a courtyard that reveals the hidden home. With tranquil hiking trails, a heated plunge pool, mountain bikes, and a hidden adventure area, you might not want to leave to visit the park.

In Joshua Tree, Calif., the high desert community some 130 miles east of Los Angeles, a new rental property called Landing House leans into this mythos." - T List, The New York Times

Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:


-”This home was everything we could’ve asked for and more! Architecturally the home is beautiful, the decor is spot on and the surrounding landscape is impeccable! Every detail was thought of ahead of time and that made our stay extra special, we did not want to leave!” -Dylan

-”Intriguing sleek home design… Private and peaceful with a night sky that resets and rests what the body instinctively knows.. All round good vibes.” -Cate

The Landing House is a warm & thoughtful mix of natural materials + modernity that supports a luxurious stay while fully-respecting and reflecting the untouched native landscape. Designed by the team behind Industry of All Nations, the inspiration for the house came from observing and feeling the magical natural surroundings…
The imposing rock formations and the biblical Joshua Trees, observing you as the gatekeepers of this sacred ecosystem.


To respect this unique landscape, the original architectural motivation took form as a fallen wooden branch that will weather with nature. The project eventually materialized out of poured concrete, cedar and glass - natural materials that will weather with time, requiring minimal maintenance or the use of non-organic materials.

Set on a five-acre parcel, The Landing House blurs the boundaries between inside and out with floor to ceiling sliding doors opening onto the Mojave Desert from each space. Offering maximum privacy for its occupants, one suite resides in the main structure and the second is accessed from the intimate courtyard.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen in the main structure overlook the plunge pool - a monolithic & geometric concrete form that extends into nature forming a perfectly round pool as if the geological forces of erosion had shaped it.

Burrowed in boulders overlooking the house is a sculptural landing pad (for you to decide whether UFOs land) overlooking endless Joshua Trees and the varied hiking and biking paths accessible to guests during a stay.

Every room is clad in cedar wall paneling, with custom white oak furniture pieces and organic cotton drapes in each space. There are ample books and games provided.

The modern kitchen is stocked with every baking and cooking essential, a sub-zero fridge, stainless steel counters, Wolf oven & induction cooktop, and multiple coffee brewing and grinding options.

The boulder suite – with a king size bed and bathroom– is surrounded by organic curtains, custom art and one-of-a-kind round windows.
The pool suite includes a private entrance, similar king size bed and bathroom, clothes nook and courtyard access.

Amazing place that you usually see only in architecture magazines. Beautiful surroundings, peaceful, private. There was even desert bunnies on the property in multiple occasions. Great place.

My kinda of rental!
Exceeded my high expectations and then some. Landing House is perfectly designed. Everything you might want and nothing extra. Normally Airbnb type rentals have low-quality knives, cheap linens, ... Here there were many great surprises. Along with sharp knives, the house came with Industry of All Nations undyed cotton t-shirts, hoodies, and loungers. (They were so comfy I bought some to take home from the store downtown.) The dishware was beautiful Heath pottery. Each room had a different set of awesome bluetooth speakers; one was from Syng and the other from B&O. (We are talking about speakers that cost $2,500 to $3,500.) The bicycles had superfat tires for riding on sand and a very effective hydraulic suspension system. Bed and pillows were so comfy that my wife bought a pillow for our home. I suspect that is part of the HM business model. They do partnerships with high-end appliances (Wolf induction stovetop), clothing companies, and consumer electronics to showcase their products to the HM customer base. Well, it's a win-win. We the renter get a posh experience, totally unlike a standard rental. Besides all the little (and big) surprises, the house itself is awesome. Best hot tub I've been in. Total quiet at night. A feeling of Zen once you step on the property. And just 3 miles to Joshua Tree national park entrance. Were there any downsides? Just a few minor issues. Unpaved road up to home is a bit bumpy. Don't need a SUV -- just drive slowly. No key to adjust bike seat height. Like I wrote above, Landing House is a total win.

We had such an amazing time staying at the landing house ? hands down one of our best stays in the desert! The house was so beautiful and we were loving all the details in the design. The neighborhood was peaceful and serene and so close to the park. Pool was a dream, we will definitely be returning!

Intriguing sleek home design … private and peaceful with a night sky that resets and rests what the body instinctively knows … the plunge pool and landing pad for meditation were just what the weary mind and body crave … until one experiences the vibe only then can one realize how much noise and stimulus daily life is actually wreaking havoc … the beautiful spirit working @ Industry of All Nations store in time which is part of the whole experience was such a vibe…the Landing is great for a couple or two BEings especially creatives like writers, artists and musicians … solitude can also be had due to there being a second small attached dwelling on the property … all around good vibes … architects did well with this structure …ART…

The location of Landing House is beyond words. We enjoyed staying in the house even more than visiting Joshua Tree National Park per se. This architectural gem is equipped with tasteful, high-quality furnishings. We were able to immerse ourselves in nature by watching various wildlife marching right in front of the house. There are several handsome Joshua trees next to the house, which are perfect refuge and food source for native animals. We spotted a roadrunner, jackrabbits, desert cottontails, Gambel's quails, and many more, right from the bedroom. The floor-to-ceiling windows are tinted, a brilliant feature that allowed us to observe wildlife unnoticed. The host is very proactive and hospitable. We will certainly come back in the future.

Very well curated, intimate home that has soul. The design is absolutely amazing, from the wood, to the aluminum, exterior and interior design and architecture are superb. Even the soap in the shower is a perfect choice, towels and very soft. The little outfit they left there is also a very good touch that really adds to the experience. The house has such a strong apparent character. Super cozy, and very private. The view is amazing too. We truly spent a memorable weekend. Our visit was worth every penny.

This place is AWESOME! I've stayed at many AirBnb's, have actually enjoyed ALL of them, but this place is hands-down the very nicest. It's brand new and detailed impeccably: Sub-Zero refrigerator, Mitsubishi Mini-Splits, super-quiet Minka-Aire Pancake ceiling fans, Wolf induction cook-top and oven, etc. Nothing but the nicest materials were used. The location is gorgeous, feels very private with beautiful views. The large spa is fantastic, I loved it! There is also a great place to hang out in the shade that is wind protected.
