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 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.

Very glad to have made the decision to Stay at Orion. This was undoubtedly on the upper end of our budget, and as such we were hesitating between a couple of other places, but at the end of the day it was well worth the extra spending! Highlights were: - Very thoughtfully hosted, each room comes with Spa towels and Blankets for lounging outside at night, kitchen/grill are well equipped, good games in the living room and generally had everything we needed! - Layout was ideal for us (4x couples), with each bedroom having it's own bathroom and entrance, making it feel very private. - Pool deck/Spa/overall location is as great as looks in the pictures!

Our stay was great! The kitchen in both houses are gorgeous, utensils and everything felt like really good quality, lots of heavy metals and were clean. The hot tub lights weren't turning on which was kind of a bummer. I happened to be there on a really windy and chilly night that didn't stop until after we checked out, so sadly wasn't able to utilize the outside space as much as I wanted to. The houses themselves are small; the main selling point is the organization of the rooms, pool, hot tub(s), and grill(s). The place itself is thoughtfully designed for multiple groups of people. Each bedroom pretty much has its own bathroom. The cleanup instructions were simple and didn't ask for a lot, which is nice considering the cleaning fee, but we still cleaned up more than the instructions asked for. Hosts were inflexible about check-in and check-out times, but were responsive.

The Homestead Modern is a beautiful, pristine property, perfect for our group. It's a great property for a group vacation (even our babies had a fun time). The property was very clean - the sofas were even vacuumed. The outdoor area is amazing, with grills, hot tubs, and a pool. Definitely recommend getting the pool heated if you're going to be there in October. Also recommend bringing whatever food supplies you'll need for your stay - the pantry is bare bones, but there is also a local grocery store not too far of a drive away.

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!

Just wow. Gorgeous views, modern design, and amazing amenities. It is private and serene, but close enough to town and convenient to get around. We had such a wonderful time here and cannot wait to revisit! This place completely exceeded my expectations and I can't recommend it enough.

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.

Very clean, modern, tasteful complex with a gorgeous pool and an epic hot tub! Families, note that all the bedrooms are separate suites that aren’t connected via any interior pathways.

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

Beautiful property and home. The pool is spectacular and they were even so kind to include a dog bed and bowls!

Beautiful, private space. Tons of room. Lucky to be there when it snowed - beautiful landscape with snow in Joshua Tree. Very responsive host. Pristine house -- fair cleaning fees (e.g. you don't have to pay a lot and then clean everything yourself!)

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 our first time in Joshua Tree and this was the perfect place! Two hot tubs, plenty of space, brand new everything, had everything we needed to cook and bbq, beautiful surroundings…the host was very helpful and accommodating. I can’t say enough great things about it and hope we get to go back!

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!!

It was a great place everyone loved it It is unusual not to have a fire pit or fireplace in Joshua Tree. (perhaps due to city regulations) fantastic hot tub!!

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.

Had an amazing birthday celebration here! The location is convenient to everything Joshua Tree. The kitchen was completely stocked for a private chef to prepare dinner one night and enough space to entertain our guests. Highly recommend

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.
