If your accommodation needs are smaller or you would only like to book the main house - Orion *Major w/ Pool - you are able to book just the 3 bedroom house:

Orion Joshua Tree was designed with privacy in mind and can accommodates up to 10 guests. The main house, Orion (*Major), is a spacious, free-standing three bedroom, three bathroom residence organized around a south-facing central courtyard and pool deck. All bedrooms are accessed off the entry breezeway and courtyard providing easy access to the spectacular 70 foot long infinity edge reflecting swimming pool and spa that rises as a jewel-like mirage in seamless continuity with the desert sky. Each bedroom is designed as a stand-alone suite complete with a full bathroom, king-size platform bed and Parachute linens. All bathrooms feature walk-in showers accented with rain shower fixtures and Public Goods body products.

Orion (*Minor), the private casita, is a spacious, free-standing one bedroom, one bathroom residence nestled within natural rock piles for privacy and capable of accommodating two (or four) guests. The architectural design is dominated by a sloping block wall riffing off the dramatic mountains that surround the property and the interiors are tastefully decorated with a modernist-inspired interior design. A private enclosed rock garden, complete with a free-standing claw footed bath tub, is provided off the primary bedroom. The hot tub nestled within the boulders is furnished with chaise lounges for sun bathing.

The high ceilings, crisp white painted walls and extensive glazing in all bedrooms allow our guests to feel a connection with the desert while providing a calming interior space. Bathrooms are fitted with custom built walnut sink cabinetry and the roll-in shower floors are clad with responsibly-harvested Cumaru wood planking. The roof skylights, glazed partitions and meticulously selected wall tile provide a light airy vibe within each bathroom.

The most current green building code practices were incorporated into the design and construction of the two houses that inhabit this site. A 9.0 kW solar panel system is used to power both of the houses, roof and exterior walls are heavily insulated and passive solar design features were incorporated to minimize heating and cooling demands. Mini-split heat pump air conditioning units provide energy efficient heating and cooling to all interior areas with individual units provided in each bedroom. Re-use and re-purposing of building materials at various stages of construction allowed for the minimal generation and export of construction waste.

Parking is available for 4 vehicles (*Major) and 2 vehicles (*Minor)

A washer and dryer is provided within Orion (*Minor) along with supplies

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 Orion Joshua Tree. 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.

I miss it already! Loved every detail of this compound. The layout, the furnishings, all the special touches, the way the sun sets over the hill, and the color of the sky over the pool. It was gorgeous and relaxing from start to finish. The host was very responsive, and all amenities were terrific. The photos don't do the space and the pool justice. I loved the Sonos sound system and the fully equipped kitchen. We will be back!

We loved staying here! The house was in the perfect location- a mile from the park and from downtown Joshua Tree - but also secluded enough to see the stars and enjoy a peaceful evening. The pool and hot tub are fantastic. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing Infiniti pool! Nowhere in the entire JT area you get a pool like this!! It’s simply a dream! The rooms themselves were okay. We would have preferred connecting rooms but that was my mistake to not read the details that rooms were not connected and had private entrance for each room. Definitely a phenomenal vacation still! Just down the street the best coffee and food you can ever get and the best bottle shop with natural and organic wines! We had a terrific time, and I definitely want to return and book it again in the future with family!

This home was above and beyond what I expected! The home feels larger than what you see in the pictures but just as gorgeous! I celebrated my Bachelorette weekend here and everyone in my group agreed this was the nicest home they had ever stayed in in Joshua tree. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking all our meals. The pool was the perfect temperature and we spent most the day lounging around it. I would definitely come back to stay at the Orion.

Orion was so nice. A kitchen in the middle and rooms all around made for a nice gathering spot with close by privacy. The town and park of Joshua Tree near by and desert all around gave us plenty to do and a home base to return to. The pool's end is a hot tub the stars above are stars and planes. Orion was so nice.

Homestead Modern was a great host! They helped me on every question I had. Also, my daughter mailed a birthday package to their office where it was retrieved. For a birthday gift, they left us 2 bottles of wine. This house is on the road into the western entrance to Joshua Tree National Park - very convenient! We would spend hours in the park, return in the afternoon to sit by the pool or use the hot tub adjacent to the pool. We used the whole complex. The casita is beautiful and a stand-alone unit with its own living space and kitchen. All units were beautifully decorated and many windows took in the scenery which is like being in the park! Our whole group, 8 older adults, enjoyed the houses and had so much fun! If I went back to Joshua Tree, I’d rent this place again. Only thing on our wish list for this rental would be indoor and outdoor propane fireplace/fire pit.

Joshua Tree is one of my favorite places to visit and this home does not disappoint for enjoying the beautiful landscape. I had several friends share the home with me that haven’t been to Joshua Tree before and it was the perfect place for them to experience it for the first time. Thanks so much for an INCREDIBLE and memorable trip

Orion was the perfect setting for a girls weekend of learning, connecting, and resetting. We enjoying hiking around the property but even more so enjoyed having the outside be part of the inside with expansive windows and clean modern decor. We were supplied with everything we needed and more! Can’t wait to return…

This was the perfect place to have 9 of my friends for a little birthday getaway. We hung out in the hot tub, cooked together in the beautiful kitchen, and had plenty of room to lounge. The guest casita is sooo cute. All of the rooms are super well decorated and gorgeous. Lots of cute photo opps. Definitely recommend!!

We had a memorable stay at the beautiful Orion complex! The buildings are beautiful, exactly as pictured, the views, especially from Orion Minor, were even better than expected. The kitchens are extremely well stocked for family meals, and the sonos sound systems were greatly appreciated. The hot tub at Orion major is perfect and we spent a lot of time there. There were issues with the lock keypads but they responded immediately so we found the key. We will definitely look for a Homestead Modern property next time we are in Joshua Tree.

What a gem in Joshua Tree, we almost don’t want anyone to know about this place! We were absolutely blown away, the place was better in person! We had no idea it was going to be a beautiful stay, will definitely come back! Perfect getaway for a group of 6. Very peaceful. Kitchen has everything which I was very happy about, we made breakfast and dinner. Decor is super cute and bed is so comfy we slept so well! Smells nice and very clean too. Easy check in and simple instructions, owner/property manager was very friendly and responsive! Can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful house super close to the park. Would definitely stay here again. The road is a little rough, so recommend using Rincon road over the map directions. We made it in a Tesla on the bad road just fine, so it’s not that big of an issue.

Loved this place. The pool/spa was amazing. It was super windy the weekend we went so we weren’t able to use the spa at night. But this home is beautiful. The host is super commutative. Would definitely book again but with more people since it seems like it would be such a great place with friends/family. Highly recommend

This home was perfect for our trip. STAY HERE! Homestead Modern is always an incredible host, and was able to accommodate a short notice booking for us. They even brought a delicious bottle of wine for us to enjoy! We spent a week at Orion, and it was everything we needed and more. The home is super clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The pool and jacuzzi were our favorite features, of course, but every detail was lovely- the bed, the linens, gas grill, the toiletries, the kitchen. There is no TV, which we didn’t mind at all. It was just my husband and I, but this home would be perfect for a group or family, it is super private and the bedrooms are separated by the patio. The neighborhood is great- we met several neighbors while enjoying sunset walks, and loved how close it was to the park. It feels very remote but is only 5-10 minutes from town. We lucked out that our last night, there was a meteor shower, and the hot tub had a great view. It was the best ending to our amazing week at Orion.

A modern, clean, dramatically set home with all the amenities you could ask for. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, cookware and appliance needs (blender, coffee grinder, toaster, cocktail shakers, etc.) for cooking/hosting. The AC and the Bluetooth sound system both work easily. The main kitchen/living room space is well-designed for comfort and function, the views are spectacular, the beds are comfortable, the pool & jacuzzi were perfection, the bathrooms clean and modern. The hosts were very responsive. All-in-all a very relaxing, hassle-free experience. The property actually consists of three structures: A main 1 bdm house with two attached 1 bdm suites across a breezeway, and another 1bdm house a short walk away, a great compound for a small group/family. We enjoyed it all to ourselves as a couple, but we would come back with friends.
