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.

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.

While we encourage taking walks on the property and in the National Park, please do not wander into our neighbor's backyards in the surrounding area as you will be trespassing on private property.

Perfect place in Joshua Tree! The other houses are far enough that you can't hear any neighbors, but close enough so you don't feel like you're lost in the desert. The house is beautifully designed, and so is the swimming pool. The only con I can find is that the water system for the pool is located next to the master bedroom, and it's loud...

Great place to stay with some friends. Just note that the house is separated so you need to cross a little courtyard (only a few steps) to get to the other bedrooms. They have everything you need for the kitchen to cook. Our favorite part was the pool since it doesn’t have an overhead covering so you’ll be able to see the stars at night. Also, very close to the national park entrance.

We loved the beautiful views from the house and the spa. Every window and view seemed intentional and well placed. The house would be really well suited to three couples or three individuals, with two of the rooms having a separate keypad entrance off of the courtyard. The rooms have lots or privacy if you are looking for that. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the cookware and utensils you would need to make meals at home, which let us linger in the morning and enjoy the space. The house is super conveniently located just outside of the park entrance. As others have mentioned, do follow the instructions on how to get there and not your GPS. All in all we had an enjoyable stay and would come back again.

Orion Major was very near the northern entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. It’s located off a desert road which was not maintained however, once we arrived we were delighted! The modern structures surround a pool, hot tub and outdoor living is protected from the wind and private. Modern conveniences and well appointed interiors added to the comfort of our stay. I highly recommend this home and the responsiveness of Homestead Modern. They responded quickly to any questions. Listed as 22 mi from our search in Palm Springs was as the crow flies and 48-1:08 drive time to town. This was my mistake since from outside the area.

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at the house. It had everything we needed for a nice retreat in the desert and the perfect surroundings, all the amenities and the decoration that made us feel welcome. We had a super peaceful evening watching at the stars and it was exactly what we were looking for. I'd definitely come back any time soon.

Overall we loved staying at the place. It was hard to locate and the address on the Airbnb listing was wrong and we went to someone else's place searching for the lockbox and keys. Once we located the place through line by line instructions from the host on road intersections we were able to checkin. The place was great, spacious and was able to accommodate our entire family. Kitchen had all the necessary amenities and vessels to make food. We did not use the pool as it was extremely cold. There is an extra cost (expensive) to heat the pool and we felt that the cost for the place could have been offset by giving people the option to either pay for using the pool or not because the overall price per night we paid was pretty expensive. The split heat pumps initially gave a lot of problems but somehow we managed to get the individual heat pumps working although the first night a few of us had to sleep in the cold. Overall we enjoyed the stay and the host was great. Recommend this place.

Came with two friends for a long weekend. The place is gorgeous, very well equipped, impeccably clean. Excellent location relative to JT Park, close enough to town for a quick drive to the coffee shop. Is on a smaller dirt road, would recommend arriving by daylight if possible.

I loved the home, pool, and location. It was magical! Very important though not to use any phone app navigation to find it. We got very lost because apple directions took us to another location. The host was amazing and helped us patiently to find the house. I recommend following the hosts written directions and not using your phone to find the home. Hopefully this will be fixed soon by maps. The home is in the perfect location between the Park and Town. We loved the pool and the views. The space was really open and beautiful. I liked the configuration of the home too.

Our group of 6 adults, 2 small children and 2 dogs really enjoyed our stay at this property. The pool and hot tub were stand out features. There were some small pool floats provided but no shade/umbrellas. The location was perfect - 5 minutes from town and very close to the best Joshua Tree National Park entrance. The hosts wrote a personalized note, offered us a complementary bottle of wine and were very responsive. The place was well-equipped with paper towels, dishes/ cookware, blankets, towels, etc. Its new so it lacks a few random conveniences but overall is wonderful. It would have been nice to have the air conditioning on in anticipation of us checking in. It took a while to cool the large main living space down after we arrived on a very hot afternoon. Beds were firm but comfortable. Be sure to understand the pet rules and be aware that you can’t take your dogs on hikes in the national park. Overall I would recommend this property for a luxury family-friendly trip.

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.

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 modern house was very beautiful and clean. Great views, spacious living area, kitchen and bedrooms/casita. Perfect for a big family. We spent most of our time in the amazing infinity pool that had nice views of the area.

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!
