Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”Booked this cabin last minute and I’m so glad I did. The cowboy tub was the best feature of the house. I think I spent more time in it than anywhere else in the house, including the bed!” -David

-”One of the most aesthetic places we’ve ever stayed! Perfect amount of privacy while not feeling too far from restaurants/stores.” -Joel

-”This was the best airbnb stay my husband and I have ever experienced. The natural surroundings of the space were just breathtaking.- The space itself was very thoughtfully appointed with all the kitchenware and linens we could want. Our every need was anticipated.” -Lauren

-BEDS & BATHS-
No expense was spared in outfitting this minimalist masterpiece with all of the comforts that travelers expect from high-end homes. The efficient floor plan includes a full sized bed, Tuft & Needle mattress, and custom built-ins with ample storage space.

“The house is just the right size for a couple- like a beautiful shell that holds you. It was lovely.” -Recent Review

-KITCHEN & DINING-
In the kitchen, you’ll find a gas stove, oven, fridge, and freezer. Extras include a kettle, a drip coffee maker, a French press, a blender, and toaster. Whip up a quick breakfast before a hike or cook a romantic dinner to enjoy as the sun sets. Inside, the dining table seats 4, and there’s a breakfast bar with 2 stools. Or, opt for al fresco dining - the outdoor table is on the patio behind the house.We are strong supporters of the local economy, providing locally roasted coffee and allowing local artists to display their work on the walls.

The patio behind the house includes a rare Chromcraft dining set and on the covered, outdoor patio, a vintage Malm capsule fireplace and two custom, curvaceous sofas for comfortable lounging. Grill up something delicious on the propane barbecue, or take a refreshing dip in the outdoor hot or cold tub. From the house, you’re within walking distance of the Park, which offers endless trails and scenery.

-DESIGN-
Famed architect Ron Radziner established the architectural design firm, Marmol Radziner and Associates, with Leo Marmol in Venice in 1989. By 2014, Radziner had worked on restoration projects originally designed by architects like Cliff May, John Lautner, and E. Stewart Williams. The firm also completed the restoration of Neutra's Kronish House in Beverly Hills that year. Over the course of his career, Radziner had helped design homes for clients like Tom Ford and Bradley Cooper and was honored as an inductee of the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 2009.

-ESSENTIALS-
The cabin has WiFi, heating, and air conditioning, plus parking for 2 vehicles.

Because of the remote location, please note that the WiFi is typically very strong, but can be a bit slower in difficult weather.

-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 Marmol Radziner's Modernist Cabin. 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.

Thank you for amazing experience, place is beautiful, exactly like on the pictures, location breathtaking here, I’m talking about big boulders at the “backyard” , this is really unique place , you feel like inside Joshua park and you can start exploring right from the house. They did good job with lighting inside and around the house, especially light up some big boulders at night, good touch! Highly recommended getaway for 2 people!

The cabin was well appointed and as described. It was clean, comfortable and had a lot of charm. Great indoor and outdoor spaces. The location was excellent; beautiful scenery and easy to walk into the park. Communication with the property management company was not always easy and information regarding checking in and check out procedures were not clear and sent late.

Fernando, thanks for mentioning that the cabin was well appointed, clean, comfortable and had a lot of charm... and that there were great indoor and outdoor spaces. We also love the beautiful scenery and easy access to the park. However, we must take issue with your complaints about communication. Homestead Modern is known well for our responsiveness, professionalism and friendly rapport. We see that you asked about a fee after hours and we got right back to you the next morning. We sent the checkout details to you the night before your departure, but your late departure reduced our ability to serve others in a timely way. While we like the compliments, the criticism here is inaccurate and not helpful to others - as it is factually untrue.

What an incredible space! The property is surrounded by beautiful rock structures and full of wildlife. If you're traveling during hot season (like we did), I highly recommend this space. The exterior covered living room provided relief from the sun, while allowing us to experience the outdoors in an otherwise extreme environment. I would absolutely stay here again.

This was the best airbnb stay my husband and I have ever experienced. The natural surroundings of the space were just breathtaking. It felt very remote but still had close proximity to everything we needed. The space itself was very thoughtfully appointed with all the kitchenware and linens we could want. Our every need was anticipated. Our favorite part was watching the stars in the evening in the bathtub. We suggest bringing a telescope to get the most out of the amazing stargazing. Thank you so much for sharing this space with us. We hope to return someday in the future.

My husband and I enjoyed our two nights at the Homestead Modern. It was our first big trip since having our daughter so we decided to splurge a bit and stay here. While the location is beautiful, neighbors did walk through our backyard in the evening, so it’s not completely private. I’m just happy we weren’t in the tub or shower at the time. We also had some difficulty with the temperature controls on the shower (it was either really hot or cold), which was disappointing as this was a big reason for booking this place. Otherwise, it’s well-stocked and beautifully designed.

If you are a perfectionist, like me, you will love Homestead. The house is absolutely perfect for two people and the outside spaces will leave you wanting to stay outside late. The cowboy tub was delightful for star-gazing. Homestead did not miss a thing, from outdoor blankets to keep you warm on a chilly night to a delightful yellow tea kettle which I already want to purchase. This house is abuts a beautiful landscape, great for walking and exploring. Couldn’t have asked for more. I’m picky, and I found no flaws. Sensational.

We had a lovely and restful weekend at this cabin! The location is incredible, and being able to hike into the park was wonderful. There are neighbors fairly close on both sides, one is under construction and there was a godo amount of folks coming and going, but it's very quiet in the evenings. We were a bit surprised to see that the bed was quite small, but it was comfortable and we were able to make it work for a couple of nights. My husband is on the tall side, though, and I think any longer would've been too squishy!

Overall, it’s a nice spot, VERY small, not quite as private as we hoped (glass windows and outdoor shower are very much visible from neighbors property), we thought it wasn’t worth the money with the exception of being able to walk into the park. Would not recommend if you and your partner sleep/wake at different times as this is a TINY studio and would not recommend to stay for more than a night or two!

Hi Kea! Thanks for staying at our "Modernist Cabin". This unique property definitely takes coziness to another level! Most guests do enjoy this tranquil space for less than a week, but some are so charmed by the scenery that they stay longer. Hopefully the excellent weather inspired you to spend as much time outdoors... as inside.

Unbelievable views and quiet, private location near Joshua Tree National Park. Cabin is beautifully simple.

This was my fourth stay at the modern cabin. I come every year for my birthday. I love the privacy and quiet, peaceful setting. My favorite things are the simple, clean interior, the huge windows, outdoor shower, and outdoor tub. The ‘backyard’ is infinitely hikable with the park right behind. Sunrises are spectacular. The night sky is mesmerizing as well. Soak it in.

The modernist house was beautifully appointed with designer retro furniture in a great location. I was surprised when we arrived as I was expecting the house to be bigger. It is essentially a cabin that’s really suited to a summer stay. Because we were there in January it was cold which I knew it would be, but there was no- where comfortable to sit and relax inside, other than the bed. Suggestion for renting it out in the winter, would be to, either have more heating outside or put a couple of comfortable chairs inside. Otherwise, it was a lovely place to stay and explore Joshua Tree

Generally, we enjoyed our stay. It’s a bit smaller than we anticipated—the pictures don’t accurately capture its size. Alas, it’s a beautiful place, fairly close to Yucca Valley and other attractions you might explore. Bring an extra blanket if it’s winter, as the one they provide is inadequate for two people. The place was well stocked for cooking, which we really appreciated it.

Happy to know you found our Modernist Cabin well stocked & beautiful. This is an architecturally significant home built as a small homestead retreat most find that it shows just as large as it photographs. The floor plan is included in the listing and extra blankets are provided in the closet next to the bed. Hope to see you again soon.

Our stay was wonderful! I wanted to take my 9 year old son on a quick road trip before thanksgiving and I’m so glad we chose this home. We read books, played board games and I even cooked a sweet potato pie the night before thanksgiving! I love okie up at 4 am to look at stars right on the back patio. I saw 7 shooting stars! My son and I both took turns in the outdoor bath under a sunny windy sky. It was so relaxing! The place was so spotless and minimal but still beautiful. The giant windows were a plus because so much sunlight came through. They have long thick shades to block out the windows which we did in the evenings. I enjoyed every minute of being here. :) I would definitely love to stay here again sometime! As far as restaurants, We loved eating at the Crossroads cafe 5 minutes away. Everything was delicious! Thanks for a lovely stay!

Easy to find, modern design, clean room. The back of the house is surrounded by giant boulders as depicted. The house is away from light pollution so it’s an excellent location for stargazing. Note that the outdoor hot tub is not functional in winter months so if you are booking it for the hot tub, beware. The temperature mixer in the shower is a little difficult to fine tune as well.

We just loved it! This beautiful design house is right outside Joshua Tree National park and it was peaceful and the view was just stunning. In the morning your ordinary breakfast will somehow taste different and in the evening try the cowboy tub in the patio, it was just so relaxing. we would definitely come back again!

This was a great place to stay! The house was clean and cozy, and the view on all sides was amazing. We really enjoyed the outdoor space and we even saw a family of kit foxes running behind the house! Although the road up to the house is not paved, we had no issues in our small 2WD car. Conveniently located to the park entrance and shops/restaurants.

Super cute cabin at the edge of Joshua Tree National Park. Perfect for a couple. Location is great and quiet, but it takes a few minutes to get from the main road up the dirt road to the cabin. Small, but very clean and comfortable, with a fully-equipped kitchen (except no microwave that we could find). We loved the semi-outdoor shower and patio seating by the outdoor gas fireplace. You can also light up the nearby boulders for a cool night scene. With the lights off, the night sky is incredible! We would definitely stay there again if/when we go back.

I don’t know if I can possibly find the words to describe this view from this magical cabin, but it is absolutely spectacular!! To see the boulders up close and personal while having coffee early in the morning and watching the sun rise or late at night with the lights illuminating them while sitting by the fire pit was everything! The cabin was my minimalistic dream come true. From the decor to the outdoor shower and Cowboy tub, *chefs kiss! Everything was clean and ready for my stay. My dog even loved all the zen vibes that this cabin exudes, there truly is nothing like it! The stars at night were so bright that you could literally see them twinkling. My tip would be to go in a full moon and slip into the Cowboy tub under the stars!! Simply breathtaking! I def look forward to coming back to this dreamy cabin in the very near future!! ???

We found a gem in this modern haven. As soon as we stepped through the door, the stress and anxiety of driving 3,000 miles faded away quickly. We found peace and tranquility. The 360 degree views were stunning as we sat perched upon the top of the hill. I don’t know what was better, watching the sunrise or watching the sunset. They both were out of this world. There were more than enough amenities, and you couldn’t have asked for a better host. We will return to this lovely little gem.

10/10 highly recommend!! What an incredible space to stay! I highly recommend if you are looking to escape the city and reconnect with nature to stay here. The instructions given to locate the space was clear and easy to follow. The space itself was incredibly clean and well looked after. The new modern tub was a dream to cool off or warm up in the sun. The fireplace and seating area is so comfy in the evening enjoying a glass of wine. The surroundings are stunning! The views and star watching was gorgeous. We saw lots of lizards, bunnies and even a few coyotes! I already cannot wait to come back to Joshua Tree and explore more.

Beautiful location and modern architecture with many nearby locations. The home has everything you need for the kitchen etc but does lack the little warm and personal touches of a mom ‘n pop shop or real home. However, you do get rapid replies and staff available to tend to any issues. The level of communication was clear and in integrity. We appreciated that when we realized there was no hot water during our stay. They took care of us and we got to enjoy our second day of our anniversary trip.

By far the best and most exclusive stay we had while touring through California. The cabin is perfectly located at the top of an unpaved road with a beautiful view over The Valley. The house itself is a little masterpiece, with top notch furnishing, BBQ, outside bathtub and even lightning for the hills you will look at while laying at the lounger next to the stylish fireplace. If you are looking for an exclusive getaway from the cities where there will be just you, the starts, and some cute little rabbits, look no further!

If you like remote, calm, and quiet stays in the desert, then you'll love the Homestead Modern. Gorgeous rock formations in the back yard and great patio space for stargazing. The house itself is much like a studio apartment - one room with everything you need: kitchen, bed, bath, dining area. Definitely recommend for a calming escape.

A really special home on a really special piece of land. The orientation of the house toward the massive rock outcroppings creates a feeling of complete solitude. The home itself is perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. I saw many jackrabbits, roadrunners, hummingbirds, doves, phainopepla and quail. The quail woke me up each morning and the local coyotes sang every night at dusk. There is a great trail up through the rocks and into the remote Northern region of the park, enter to the right of the large water tank on the hill, or climb the boulders directly behind the house and link up with the Burro Loop trail. I did a 5-mile loop up through there and didn't see another person.

It’s really quiet day and night. you can enjoy the light, the sun, the air. It’s unbelievable that these stone’s are there since millions of years. A place for thinking and no thinking.

This property is nestled near the rocks on one edge of the park, with beautiful views on the north and south sides. The space was impeccably clean when we arrived. The kitchen was well-appointed and we were able to cook several meals without too many obstacles. Overall, our stay was comfortable and pleasant. A minor complaint is that the space was a little smaller than anticipated from the pictures (like a studio apartment), but it didn't detract from our trip in any way.

This was my second stay here and I almost hesitate to write another great review for fear of more people finding it. I came alone the first year for a fabulous weekend of solitude. This year I brought a special friend and the solitude was shared. It was no less special, for sure. We cooked, bathed, hiked, lounged, etc. We enjoyed every minute in this perfect, quiet cabin. The proximity to the park is ideal but wandering out the back door is just as magical at sunrise or whenever the moment hits. There are a few places within a 10-20 min drive if you must eat out. We even ventured to Palm Springs for provisions the first day. Its less than an hour drive and has a wide range of bars and stores. The kitchen is well equipped for basic meal prep and large enough to move around. The bathroom, outdoor shower, and outdoor tub are just right. I dream of them when I am home in snowy Michigan. In a phrase - don't come here and suffer the same longings I have;)

This was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had with Airbnb. The location of this house is so incredible, at times it was almost hard to believe where you are. Joshua Tree national park is stunning enough, but being able to walk right into the park from the privacy of your own home with no cars or other tourists around is so wonderful. The sunrises and sunsets are the most magical experience, everything about this house is perfect. Definitely planning another stay, cant wait to go back. Thank you for providing such an unforgettable experience.
