Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”This property is the dream. We had everything we needed for a desert retreat - pool, hot tub, fire pit, hammock, and much more." -Tong

-"Owl N Hare exceeded my expectations. We had so much space and I was blown away with the size of the property. The amenities were on point and the decor for each unit was impressive and comfortable. It had the style of a boutique hotel without being pretentious. Homestead Modern was a phenomenal host. I had so many questions leading up to our trip, and all were answered quickly and accurately. The pool, hot tub, and fire pit were the extras that made our stay extraordinary. If you are traveling with friends and/or family members, Owl N Hare should be on the top of your list for accommodations in Joshua Tree! Needless to say, I'll be back!"- Mayella / October

-”This was the absolute best airbnb we've ever stayed at. The houses are beautiful, minimalist and comfortable, but also remodeled in a luxurious and modern way.“ -Jenne

The property sits on two and a half acres of both landscaped and natural desert land with the long views that are associated with the gently sloping hills of the Joshua Tree Highlands neighborhood. Owl & Hare includes two separate suites fittingly named Owl and Hare. Each space offers 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living area w/ TV and a fully-stocked kitchen. Both suites have private entrances and patios but also open onto a generous, connected courtyard that offers a variety of siting, lounging, and dining options. The newly built pool overlooking Joshua Tree has its own lounge area w/ a vintage Airstream pool room.

Owl’s primary bedroom (king sized bed) has an en-suite bathroom, as well as a second bedroom (queen) and bathroom on the other side of the suite from the kitchen and living area. Hare also has two bedrooms (queen) with private baths, separated by an open kitchen and living area. Owl is slightly larger and has a yoga / barre workout area in the second bedroom. All bedrooms have storage space for clothes and an abundant amount of privacy.

Each modern kitchen is fully equipped for any desert-inspired culinary endeavor. The breakfast bar in Owl is the ideal spot for watching over the compound while planning your afternoon picnic and the small tables on the private patios are perfect for morning coffee. There are multiple options for outdoor dining throughout Owl & Hare.

* Baking sheets, pots, pans, hand mixer, toaster, blender + more
* Pre-arrival food & beverage stocking services if desired
* Locally roasted coffee, kettle, drip and French press coffee maker
* Propane BBQ grill w/ tools

After climbing boulders or an invigorating hike, nothing feels better than relaxing in the living room of your choice. Each suite’s living space has TVs equipped with Roku (Owl has a 55” TV in the living area and a smaller set in the primary bedroom), a Bluetooth player, turntable, LP collection, games, and collections of books.

The outdoor space had been arranged to optimize engagement with the desert surrounds and provide communal AND private space throughout the compound. Next to the Airstream is a covered pool w/ National Park views, a large fire-pit with ample seating, chaise lounges for sunning or stargazing, a patio with open and shaded lounging areas, and plenty of room for yoga (mats and props provided).


Parking is available for 4 vehicles in the driveway.

There is high speed WiFi, heating, and air conditioning

Washer & Dryer w/ supplies provided.


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 Parkside. 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.

Everything at your fingertips and more, when you book with us today!

Neighborhood Neighborhood
Joshua Tree Highlands is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the area given its close proximity to the national park as well as its forever northerly vistas of the Mojave Desert.

This house was perfect for my three coworkers and I, with 4 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. We stayed for 4 nights and our stay at the house was very enjoyable, even in the summer heat. I raved about the house on my social media and shared the link to the house as well. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing stay at Homestead Modern. My friend and I were really just passing through town and got lucky enough to snag this place. It was just the two of us, but it was great for he and I to be able to have our own separate spaces. Beautiful space, private, hot tub, pool, great kitchen. Everything was wonderful. We even added on an extra day and probably would have added on even more if it was available. Definitely staying here again the next time we pass through. And it even had me thinking of planning a trip with family just to come stay in this place, I can tell it's perfect for big groups. Our thanks to our wonderful hosts!

Our families had an incredible stay at Owl & Hare! The setup of the two separate homes was perfect for our group, allowing us to enjoy togetherness while maintaining privacy. The pool was a highlight, providing a refreshing escape with stunning views of Joshua Tree. The bathroom in the Owl suite was amazing, and the property was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. We appreciated the thoughtful decor, which added to the mid-century charm of the place. The fully stocked kitchens had everything we needed, making our stay even more convenient. The outdoor space was perfect for relaxation, with a hot tub, fire pit, and ample seating. The quiet location and serene surroundings made it a perfect retreat. Highly recommended for families or groups looking for a luxurious and private getaway in Joshua Tree! We can't wait to return!

Couldn't recommend this place enough! We stayed in the Owl house- it was so well designed and the bed/bedding were very comfy. The host was very communicative and the location was perfect. We spent most of our afternoons in the pool area, and also enjoyed the hot tub and main patio. We'll definitely be coming back again with a bigger group next time!

Perfect for a multi-generational family vacation - there was something for everyone. The kids loved the pool and ping pong table, and there were lots of wonderful spaces for the adults to relax and spend time with kids. We loved our time at the property and would absolutely recommend. Thanks for everything!

Awesome property. Travelled with family including grandparents and kids. I actually did not realize it was two separate houses with a kitchen and living space in each (loved it, only want to stay at this style accommodation from now on). So much privacy! Everything was clean. Outdoor amenities were loved by all. l would happily stay here again!

This place is magical. Description is exactly as noted. We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Owl and Hare. They only issue we had was with the jacuzzi not being turned on or heated when we arrived. Other than that I highly recommend booking this special place.
- Review Date: 11/6/2023
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay here. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the jacuzzi not feeling as if it was not turned on. Our property managers and staff verified that this amenity was working properly prior to your arrival. We understand that this may have impacted your overall experience, and we sincerely apologize for any disappointment caused. In colder weather, hot tubs can sometimes feel cooler than they actually are and can take time to reach full temp, especially if the covers are left open/off for any period of time. We are happy it did get fully warm during your stay and you were able to enjoy it for the rest of your time.

Owl N Hare exceeded my expectations. We had so much space and I was blown away with the size of the property. The amenities were on point and the decor for each unit was impressive and comfortable. It had the style of a boutique hotel without being pretentious. Homestead Modern was a phenomenal host. I had so many questions leading up to our trip, and all were answered quickly and accurately. The pool, hot tub, and fire pit were the extras that made our stay extraordinary. If you are traveling with friends and/or family members, Owl N Hare should be on the top of your list for accommodations in Joshua Tree! Needless to say, I'll be back!

This place is a slice of heaven. It feels like you are in the beautiful desert alone when on this property. But you are 10 min from town and the west gate to the national park. There are gorgeous Joshua trees all over the property and the star gazing was incredible. The house is exactly as advertised, well maintained, super clean and very comfortable. I would recommend this experience to all.

We stayed at the Airbnb for a couple of days with a group of friends. We love that they have two separate living areas so it provides some privacy. It has a lot of space to hangout. It’s very close to the Joshua tree National park where we bouldered for two mornings. Definitely recommend it m.

My stay at Owl n Hare was truly magical. I brought a group of friends out to Joshua Tree to celebrate my birthday and we couldn’t have asked for a better location for the festivities. Everyone remarked on how awesome the property was upon arrival, and that sentiment didn’t change throughout our weekend together. 10/10 would recommend.

From the moment we arrived at the Owl and Hare, we knew we were in for a special experience. Nestled amidst the iconic Joshua Tree landscape, the house radiates a sense of peace and tranquility, making it an ideal weekend getaway from Los Angeles. The attention to detail in this property is second to none. Upscale furnishings create a luxurious yet cozy atmosphere, offering all the comforts of home with an added touch of elegance. But as stunning as the interiors are, the outdoor amenities truly steal the show. The pool provided hours of relaxation, allowing us to float and gaze at the expansive desert views. Speaking of which, the nighttime views are nothing short of spectacular. Can't wait to return!

Gorgeous, modern, clean, fully stocked compound right in the middle of the Joshua Tree desert. Talk about out in the wild at its finest. Definitely off the grid, but close to civilization and the downtown Joshua Tree restaurants & stores. I highly recommend having a 4X4 truck to access this house, it’s off a dirt road like most of this town. The pool was very well kept and perfect for getting a real desert tan.

This home is AMAZING! It’s separate homes on one property! There is so much space, perfect for a group of friends or personal time. The home itself was exactly like the pictures. It was clean and nicely organized. The beds were sooooo comfy! The pool and hot tub were clean and regularly maintained. They had plenty of games. The kitchens were spacious and had plenty of tools. Overall 10000/10 experience.

The kitchen had all of the utensils we needed! Amazed by the appliances as well as having two houses so close to one another. There were some bugs, lizards and bats at times but nothing without being said being close to the Joshua tree park. There were coyote at night but overall a LOVELY retreat.

Beautiful home with artful furniture, high quality beds, and thoughtful touches throughout. The property was immaculate and well suited to the sparse desert landscape with incredible views. Pool was a welcome oasis for our family of 6. Kitchen has everything needed for breakfast, lunch and dinner - new appliances were a pleasure to use. Incredible location minutes outside of Joshua Tree NP. Highly recommend and plan to return.

very much enjoyed our stay at this property. would definitely recommend! even on the hot day, the house was easily kept to a perfect temperature. there was plenty to do. although we didn’t get to enjoy everything the house offered because we were so occupied by the pool and enjoying the beautiful nature, there was a ton of activities to do around the house. the hosts made the stay a million times easier. everything was already stated in the instructions given, but they never hesitated to answer questions within minutes. stay here, and enjoy! ????

Our stay at the Owl & Hare compound was everything I hoped it would be. If you love being a little secluded and having plenty of space for your guests to roam around and enjoy nature, this is the spot for you! At the same time it was nice being off the main road and close to the park which made it super convenient, as our group hopped over there just as the sun was setting to take in the magic that is Joshua Tree. We also really loved coming back and enjoying the fire pit while gazing up at the Milky Way and desert sky. The house is gorgeous with lots of windows and perfectly decorated and stocked with whatever you need. It was really great that each room had its own bathroom. We loved the two kitchens too, and the pool was a definite highlight! I have already recommended this place to friends and family and would definitely come back again.

This property is the dream. We had everything we needed for a desert retreat - pool, hot tub, fire pit, hammock, and much more. The two suites set up gave us separation and space to work remotely during the week. The location is amazing, too - a short drive to the national park entrance as well as the restaurants/grocery stores in JT and Yucca Valley. We'll definitely come back again!

The hosts were super helpful and responsive - I had several questions in the weeks leading up to the reservation dates and the hosts always responded quickly and kindly. So pleased we found this spot - the spacious kitchen was great for our group, and all of the bedrooms were beautiful. The outdoor amenities - pool, spa, firepit - were all perfect and easy to operate. Would definitely stay again. Thanks!

This was the absolute best airbnb we've ever stayed at. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this property for anyone traveling to Joshua Tree. We were 2 families traveling together and the 2 separate houses were perfect for our group. The houses are beautiful, minimalist and comfortable, but also remodeled in a luxurious and modern way. We absolutely loved the very comfortable beds and parachute linens (I might just buy some now!). And the best part---the views from every single place on the property are just amazing, whether inside the house or sitting outside. There is great communal space between the houses and also several quiet spaces to sit quietly and enjoy the surroundings. We loved the pool (as did our kids) and the hot tub, and we played lots of ping pong. We cooked all our meals in the house and the kitchen had absolutely everything we could need- they thought of everything! The location was perfect- close to the park and town, but also very private!

This was a peaceful place to stay with my family. We had six adults and two kids and everyone had fun things to do and enjoyed the space. We loved cooking in the kitchen! The beds were comfortable. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor games, the spa and the fire pit was great for making s'mores. The property is very close to the entrance to the Park and there are plenty of stores, grocery stores and restaurants nearby. The Park visitor center is also very close and my granddaughter had a great time doing the Junior Ranger program! Thanks for such a great stay in Joshua Tree!

This home is UNREAL. You can tell so much thought went into every detail, and the details are stunning. The airstream was an added bonus as a pool house, the hot tub is awesome, the view from the pool is amazing. They had a guitar and record player and all sorts out outdoor games to play at this compound, its huge! Definitely would stay again, homestead modern is so attentive and professional to the needs of the guest, they really go above and beyond. 5 stars, would do more if i could!

Owl and Hare is magical. We went for my brother's birthday and hiked all over JT and came home to a thoughtful, extremely clean and well appointed home. It was a perfect set up because of the two houses on the property, connected by a breezeway. I cannot wait to come back. A little pricey (our weekend, I know prices fluctuate), but WELL worth it and i would do it again and again with zero hesitation. the home also had a cute, cheeky vibe but not kitch or cheesy. i really appreciated the design of the home.

This was our second stay at one of Homestead Modern’s homes and as always it didn’t disappoint. They’re a very communicative company and their homes are always as pictured or better, and full of really cool thoughtful touches. This compound is great for a group (we stayed in one house with our daughter; my parents stayed in the other) and is ten minutes from both the park and the main strip. We definitely recommend it, but also just be advised that we had poor internet service across the whole compound, which made it hard to work remotely. Hopefully that’s something the host company can enhance for future stays; it’s obviously something that’s not entirely in their hands. Otherwise the compound is incredible and we really recommend it!

Great property with amazing views. A true Joshua Tree landscape! Thoughtfully designed with privacy in mind so even though there are neighbors you don’t see them. Nice layout with 2 homes which was great for traveling with a group of 4 adults, baby, and 4 year old. The airstream was cool. Homestead Modern was very responsive and supportive. The bedding was so comfortable. The only thing I wish I had known was how bumpy the road is getting to the property. Also, cell reception isn’t great but was ok.

I booked this location because the peak of the Perseid meteor shower was the night before my birthday & we wanted to go out into the desert! I was stressed looking for places because I’m very picky & we wanted our privacy, Owl & Hare was BEYOND my expectations. The house(s) were easy to cool down during the day, & at night.. it was the most beautiful thing you could experience! We almost wanted to just sleep outside, the amount of stars you can see is incredible. I still dream of watching the moon rise while sitting in the hot tub. The rooms were all incredibly clean, & the kitchen is stocked with pans, cups & plates, utensils, etc which helped us so much since we only had to bring food. Whenever we had a question they were super quick to answer & help us. If you are debating whether or not to spend the money vs finding a cheaper place, I can promise you it’s worth it. We are already planning another trip back <3
