Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”We absolutely loved staying here. The house is beautifully designed and decorated and offers everything you need for a fantastic stay in the desert. The pool and spa are divine , there's an expansive area around the house to wander around.” -Penny

-”It was spotless, even more beautiful than the photos and had everything you need for your stay, we cooked, bbq’d, did yoga and explored locally (Pioneer Town, Indian Canyon hike, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree etc). Very relaxing and amazing trip, 10/10 recommend, we hope to come back!” -Paula

-”This was absolutely the most beautiful and impeccably clean place we have ever stayed. Immediately arriving at the grounds, I felt a sense of calmness that I haven't felt in a long time. The home invited you to stay, to be still, to relax.” -Linda

Situated in one of Yucca Valley's most scenic areas, this Moroccan-inspired home is one of the gems of the desert. Enter through a large gate providing absolute privacy, walk through dense desert landscaping & past our tiled fountain and through a blue antique door that leads you to the home’s dramatic entryway. Inside, the open floor plan is accented by stunning handmade tiles and is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows bringing in bright natural light throughout the day. The living room, beautifully enhanced with handmade merino wool pillows from north Argentina, is the best place to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets or your favorite book.

Indoor flows seamlessly with the outdoor. The central courtyard serves as the home’s desert lounge with endless stargazing and entertaining opportunities. Grand patios on the back are great places to soak in the views or relax in next to the saltwater pool and spa before a walk in the peaceful acreage surrounding the home.

This house can comfortably sleep 4 guests between the two bedrooms, both with their own closets, patios, and access to the courtyard. Both bedrooms have queen sized beds, seating, TVs, Sonos Speakers, and Parachute linens.

There are 2 bathrooms – both w/ premium amenities and hand-made tile. The first is adjacent to the guest bedroom w/ a walk-in shower. The second is an expansive bathing lounge with a bathtub, dual vanities, & walk-in shower fronted by wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling glass panels.

The kitchen is fully equipped for any desert-inspired culinary endeavor with modern appliances, handmade Argentine pottery, pendants from Morocco, an exquisite island, and high-end stainless steel appliances. The gorgeous dining room comfortably seats 8 and opens up to the courtyard patio. And the rustic white oak cabinets hold endless tools and surprises.

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 Moroccan Swim House. 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.

The Mia Riad home is a wonderful home base for exploring the Joshua Tree area. It is even better than the pictures demonstrate. And the hosts were extremely helpful both in communicating while we were there and leaving detailed instructions and guidebooks in the home. Highly recommend this place!

The home was absolutely beautiful and looked exactly like the photos. The design aspects were thoughtful and provided a warm welcoming feeling. The location was exactly what we were looking for. A private space to unwind while taking in the beauty of the Yucca Valley & Joshua Tree area. The house had everything we needed although it would have been even better if there were things like coffee or tea as there was coffee maker and electric kettle in the kitchen. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were top of the line

Our stay at this beautiful property was tranquil and peaceful. Homestead was great in stocking the property with everything guests need down to the details (e.g. make up removing pads and can openers and fresh coffee). Everything was clean and instructions were thorough and easy to follow. There was even a guestbook with recommendations throughout the nearby area. We felt looked after and would highly recommend.

Amazing and private location with heavy emphasis on design and privacy. Very serene and sublime architecture and a beautiful vista. The bedrooms are luxurious, living room is spacious and a great outside environment provide a peaceful stay outside of a daily and busy weekly grind. Really love this host and I will always book any of their properties, they are super responsive and make immediate changes as needed. Will come to this property again as well as any other Homestead hosted property.

The Moroccan SwimHouse was beautiful. We had never been to Joshua Tree in the winter and had no idea how cold it would be, but the house was cozy and comfortable and filled with sunshine through the floor-to-ceiling patio doors. We enjoyed the spectacular view from the comfort of the living room and late at night by the outside fire pit. We brought our dogs and they were in heaven in the gated yard. The hosts left a sweet little basket of creature comforts for them. We cooked a huge dinner one night and found everything we needed (including smoked paprika that we forgot!!!) in the well-equipped kitchen. The plates, mugs, boards, and flatware were stunning and made our meal IG-worthy. The space was the perfect size for a getaway for the four of us (2 couples.) We are definitely saving this space in our wishlist and hope to return when we can take advantage of the extraordinary pool and surrounding grounds. Highly recommend!!

We had a lovely stay at Casa Mia. It was beautiful and so peaceful and rejuvenating. We absolutely loved the outdoor space - a nap or two might have been taken on the couch. The fire pit made for warm sunrises and sunsets. The home was so comfortable, cozy, and relaxing. We had everything we needed (except for coffee and sugar - sad times!) and felt right at home. Loved having a washer and dryer after days of hiking in JTNP. We would stay again and recommend to anyone!

Gorgeous home. Stunning first impression to my surprised husband. Lovely place to unplug and unwind. Good private-feeling and quiet location among the native Joshua trees and wildlife (road runners, birds, etc) on the property. We felt like we got the full Joshua tree experience staying there. Host communications timely & helpful. After figuring out the many modern device instructions, all went smoothly. Very comfortable bed and nice hot water bath. A nice touch to provide bath salts, and a welcome bottle of whiskey! We pre-arranged to alternate the pool and hot tub heat for a full experience, which was worth it for a November day stay. Overall thrilled with our decision to choose to stay at Mia Riad Moroccan Pool House and would stay again if in the area.

This place was amazing. I was looking for something that didn’t feel like it was in the city and this was perfect. It was secluded and had such detail. The outdoor space was devine and truly perfect for a girls weekend. There were so many picture perfect spots and overall it was everything we needed and wanted. I loved being able to cook and then enjoy our time by the pool. The host was super responsive. I’m talking about like minutes and accommodated us in every way possible!

Mia Riad is as advertised, and so much more. My wife and I stayed during the week of our elopement, and it was truly the perfect space for us. It is a beautiful designed home, and the attention to detail is second to none. It feels both incredibly private and intimate, while also bringing in the expanse of the Joshua Tree landscape. The home was a beautiful space to return to after a busy week of family and friends. Everything was smooth, from start to finish, and Homestead Modern had terrific customer service and communication throughout. Any question we had was answered quickly and kindly. We were initially apprehensive to book through a management company (some bad experiences in the past) but we would absolutely recommend this property, and Homestead Modern, to anyone.

Mia Riad was an absolute desert oasis, we stayed for a couple of days before moving to our friends' wedding venue for the weekend, and every last detail of the stay was so thoughtfully considered and beautiful, it was truly breathtaking. It was our first time in the desert and we got to see incredible wildlife while relaxing by the pool and firepit looking out into the cactus garden (including a roadrunner, jackrabbit, coyote, lizards) and even seeing a hummingbird in the flowers right at the window while soaking in the tub. An unbelievable paradise of a property that we will definitely be returning to. Thank you for the much needed peace.

Such a stunning property !!! The interior and exterior details are unreal. A must stay in Yucca Valley. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If we had any questions the host responded immediately and was so accommodating. Appliances were also high end which was a plus.

We had the best time at Homestead Modern’s Moroccan style home! The place was so clean, beautiful and well put together! It was just what we needed. We’ll definitely be back and highly recommend this listing to anyone looking for a fun getaway in Joshua Tree. Thank you to the owners for opening up your beautiful home! We’ll never forget this trip!

This place was outstanding! We loved everything about this private getaway house. There was a missing pool net but the host was super responsive and bought a new net and sent it over the next day. Everything looked great, just like in the pictures. I loved the airplay speakers available in every room, even outside by the pool! Truely an enjoyable time there!

The folks at Homestead Modern have done an amazing job creating a beautiful desert escape in Yucca Valley. The place was very well designed with an awesome aesthetic inside and out. The amenities were top notch and the hosts were communicative and helpful. My only complaint was that we stayed for two nights and not more! Would definitely recommend.

Perfect place near Joshua Tree for family to stay. We had a great time with our young kids here. Also a great place to watch stars at night.

We’ve stayed in a few properties managed by homestead modern and all of them have been pretty spectacular. This however, is BY FAR our favorite. The house is beautiful, new, clean, fresh, and well-appointed. The modern-Mediterranean decor is on point—as are the Parachute sheets, towels, and cozy comforters. From a stocked kitchen and Sonos to espresso and the bbq grill—the house has everything you need for a weekend getaway. But wait! Beyond the gorgeous interior is the picture-perfect yard! The grounds are impeccable. The pool and spa are warm, big, clean and heavenly. The views, fountain, day bed, and firepit are off the charts. We cancelled every dinner reservation we had because we didn’t want to leave the house at night. We cooked every meal, swam, listened to music and chilled there for the perfect weekend. This is our new favorite spot in JT and we will 100,000% be back.

This is a sweet Airbnb! Loved the location/and decor put into the house! Beds were comfy, no detail spared! Pool/outdoor area was fantastic despite it being hot in July to visit! I will say… only thing we did not like is that there felt like there was no comfortable place to sit in the home. The chairs/“couch”, dining chairs all areas to sit were very uncomfortable so hopefully they can find some comfier seats for guests! I know the look/aesthetic is important but so is comfortability!

We absolutely loved staying here. The house is beautifully designed and decorated and offers everything you need for a fantastic stay in the desert. The pool and spa are devine , there's an expansive area around the house to wander around. Check in / out was very easy and the team at Homestead Modern were attentive, responsive and very generous. If you are looking for the best airbnb imaginable in Joshua tree ; this is it.

This was the most amazing Airbnb that we have stayed at! Our teens enjoyed the pool, hot tub and all the cool critters running around the open backyard ( rabbits, roadrunners, humming birds etc). It was spotless, even more beautiful than the photos and had everything you need for your stay, we cooked, bbq’d, did yoga and explored locally (Pioneer Town, Indian Canyon hike, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree etc). Very relaxing and amazing trip, 10/10 recommend, we hope to come back!

We rent a LOT of airbnb's, and let me start by saying this was absolutely the most beautiful and impeccably clean place we have ever stayed. Immediately arriving at the grounds, I felt a sense of calmness that I haven't felt in a long time. The home invited you to stay, to be still, to relax. I can't quite describe how I felt, other than to say that I cannot wait to come back. Additionally, I never ever take baths at any rental because I am rather insane about cleanliness -- but I took a bath here. And it was marvelous.

The hosts made us feel at home. The house and surroundings immediately give you a feeling of being relaxed as soon as you step in. Our family of 4 2 adults and 2 kids had a great time in the pool. The house is very safe for kids. We saw birds and squirrels and the location is central to major restaurants and towns in the high desert. We would love to come back! P.S. the sound system in this home is fantastic!

Our stay in the high desert was nothing short of perfect. Between the home, amenities outside the house, and privacy, we felt totally safe and in peace. Finally an Airbnb that we did not want to leave. The location was perfect for getting to Palm Springs, hiking in Joshua Tree, or exploring the surrounding towns. The host took an incredibly personal touch with a welcome gift, and the ambiance of the whole stay was luxurious to say the least.

This house is beautiful and represented very well in the listing. It's a new build, and everything is impeccably done. The kitchen is well-appointed, there is easy to use tech everywhere for all the modern conveniences. Everything is spelled out in the simplest terms so there's no time wasted figured out how to run the house. The spa and pool are really easy to operate and are awesome. There aren't a lot of in-ground pools in J-Tree, so this isn't a common set-up. The hosts were extremely accommodating and had everything laid out without me having to ask for any instructions. Accessing the house was as easy as it gets with a gate code provided and the ability to unlock the front door via a code or app. Location was the perfect mix of isolation and convenience. There are neighbors on either side and in the far distance behind. It's not a place that is totally off the grid if that's what you're looking for, but the property is huge and feels very private. 10/10 would recommend.

Great great place. The place is exactly like the photos or even better. Very modern but cozy, beautifully decorated, and has everything you could possibly need. The pool and the jacuzzi were the best part of it of course, it was simply so nice to sit in it and look at the scenery. The house is easy to access from the main road but nicely tucked away so we couldn’t hear a thing from the road or anywhere else. Very quiet. Plus, it’s south facing if anybody is wondering! And the host is absolutely professional, very kind, and gives clear instructions. Overall, a great experience and I can’t see anyone not happy with it. :)))

This place is amazing! Beautiful design and decor, extremely comfortable in all ways, amazing pool and spa and the yard and landscaping and the gated property gives it a very secluded feel. The view to the South is gorgeous, and the entertainment system and bathrooms are great. I wish it was for sale ;-)
