This home is part of a larger complex known simply as Orion. The entire Orion compound consists of this home + an additional home called Orion (Major/Minor) located 100 yards away. While guests can easily walk to the other home from this home, it is completely separate with its own parking, entrance, and amenities. If you are renting out this space, the other home can be rented out to another group. If you are interested in renting both spaces, as a 4 bedroom complex, please book Orion Joshua Tree:

Orion Joshua Tree was designed with privacy in mind and can accommodates up to 6 guests. This house is the main house, Orion (*Major), and 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.

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.

- Primary bedroom w/ ensuite bath, adjacent to main living & kitchen space
- Bedroom 2: separate entrance w/ ensuite bath and closet
- Bedroom 3: separate entrance w/ ensuite bath and closet
- All bedrooms surround the courtyard and infinity pool
- All bedrooms have king size beds, Custom Comfort mattresses and premium Parachute towels and linens.

The spacious Orion kitchen fitted with large central waterfall islands allows guests to prepare meals and entertain their fellow guests in comfort. If you prefer to make a cocktail while someone else prepares dinner, Homestead Modern is happy to arrange an intimate experience with a private chef for your stay and/or have premium meats and beverages awaiting your arrival. Both chef's kitchens are fully stocked with modern appliances overlooking large living and dining areas.

The outdoor spaces are intentionally integrated into the natural desert landscape. The infinity pool is surrounded by an expansive patio with varied seating and relaxing options that capture the majestic views.

Please note due to high fuel costs in our area and cold winters, we charge an additional fee to heat the pool side in OCT, NOV, MARCH, & APRIL. We are not able to heat the pool in DEC/JAN/FEB. The hot tub is heated at no extra cost.

♦ Dramatic infinity edge lap pool & integrated spa
♦ Large relaxation area surrounding the pool with chaise lounge chairs and dining table
♦ Patio w/ propane BBQ grill and loungers

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

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 Major. 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 house is absolutely stunning and matches the pictures perfectly. The infinity pool is the standout feature. Homestead Modern was very responsive and provided helpful assistance. However, the address provided was incorrect, and following their instructions led us to spend an hour searching for the property. I suggest Homestead Modern include the precise location or the coordinates to facilitate easier access. Despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

Hi Giulia, We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the incorrect address provided during your stay. We have taken action to assure this will not happen again and made sure that the turn by trun directions were in fact correct, as GPS can be very unreliable in this area. We're thrilled that despite the initial challenge, you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to hosting you again in the future.

My friends and I had a fabulous weekend at this Joshua Tree property. We loved that each bedroom had the same set up with a king size bed and its own en suite bathroom so each couple had privacy. The pool & lounge areas were comfortable and had fantastic views. The home was clean and well thought out with everything guests need. We had a great time cooking, hanging out in the pool, looking at the stars at night, and just relaxing together. We would definitely stay here again!

This place was immaculate! The pictures definitely match up with how it is in real life. The swimming pool was a dream and was our favorite thing to do during our Labor Day weekend. One thing to note if you’re going as a group of single girls.. the bedrooms are all in separate “units.” PERFECT place for families or couples, but just something different to consider if you’re just three girls alone. other than that the host was very responsive and the place is just awesome!!

This has been my first air bnb that I chose. It was exactly as described. It was beautiful. Wish I would of booked for longer, definitely coming back to this specific one. The vibe was amazing, quiet and peaceful. I have a stressful government job, and this place is just what I needed. My husband loved it, as well as my 2 friends. 5 stars all the way.

This place was amazing! The kitchen was very well stocked with all sorts of things and there were board games as well. The house was beautiful and so peaceful. The location was amazing and it was so quiet and relaxing. The pool was great and so was the jacuzzi. Everything was easy to operate and we didn't have any problems. The host was also super responsive and super nice. I would recommend this place to everyone and I will definitely be staying here again.

This is a beautiful newly built modern home just a mile from Joshua tree National park. The residence was peaceful, private, clean, and beautifully artistic. The pool, spa, and views are the best part. Every window in the house views the pool and the hillside full of Joshua trees. The amenities were a wonderful plus and the home decor was modern and meticulous. Homestead modern was highly professional from start to finish and very responsive and helpful at all times. We highly recommend this Airbnb during any time of year!

What a fabulous home! We loved staying here and will most definitely be back. The setup of the home is perfect, with the kitchen, main bedroom and living room and 2 separate bedrooms located around a stunning infinity style pool with gorgeous views. Decor is elegant and simple. No clutter. High-end appliances and accessories. Can’t wait to be back. Thank you!
