ACTIVITIES/ATTRACTIONS
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 Pause House. 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.

An absolute stunning stay with memories to last a lifetime. I booked this stay for my sister and I as apart of a sisters getaway and we were instantly taken back by the beautiful of this location just driving up the driveway. We watched the sunset in the hot tub while being surrounded by the beautiful desert oasis and clear starry night. We had the best nights rest in the cozy as can be bed. Everything was beautifully put together, the home was gorgeous in every detail. We woke up early to do yoga as the sun rose and enjoyed our coffee by the fire pit. I cannot say enough, book this stay…you will not stop reminiscing once you have.

Amazing place, great design. Pretty remote, only two other houses in view pretty far away. Good kitchen amenities. Super clean. Hot tub already hot and easy to use. Parking spot is a bit far from the house if you’re bringing a lot of stuff in it’s tricky, but isn’t a big deal. Overall very modern amazing place. Non instructive to the desert vibe.

We loved the desert views and tranquility. The cowboy hot tub and AC helped to cool of us of from the extreme heat of the desert. Lots of critters outside too. We saw two black widows (they left us alone), a coyote, jackrabbits, a gopher snake, and tons of birds. That part made it feel like a real outdoor adventure!

I normally don’t write reviews but I need to leave one for this place. Truly such an incredible stay! It is so peaceful and secluded, there’s a few neighbors near by but far enough that you feel like you’re in total privacy. The location is so stunning with the most beautiful sunset and sunrise views. My husband and I stayed here for our three year anniversary and we couldn’t be happier, truly this place looks better than the photos and has everything you need. If we’re back in Joshua tree we will most definitely be going back here or to another homestead property. If you’re looking for a place in yucca/ Joshua tree area book this you will not regret it!

We had an incredible time at this beautiful property! The landscape was filled with plants and had good-sized Joshua trees in the distance, which could be enjoyed from all windows of the house and especially the hot tub. The property was in a private and quite location. Attention to detail was paid inside this home, it was very comfortable and felt like a luxury hotel. Thank you for such a peaceful and memorable experience!

Was a great stay, had all the amenities and more! My husband and I utilized a few of their additional services they offer and it was the best! Directions getting to the location: I personally didn’t have any trouble with inaccurate directions while using my iPhone’s Apple Maps. It gave me 100% accurate directions. I’m not sure if overtime, the geographic location was able to update and pinpoint better digital directions, but I would still defer to homestead modern’s advisement of their directions just in case. Overall, it was a restful and quiet stay! And we hope to visit again!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Pause House AM. The home/property looked exactly like it did in the listing and everything we needed (from kitchen items to spa towels) was there for us. If we had any questions, the host was great about getting back to us promptly. It was extremely hot outside when we stayed at Pause House, but the AC worked well and the cowboy tub was perfect to cool down in after spending mornings at Joshua Tree National Park. Stargazing from the hot tub or rocking chairs by the fire was amazing too! I would definitely recommend staying here and only wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. We celebrated our anniversary and chose this place based on the privacy it appeared to have and atmosphere it offered. The house is perfect for a romantic getaway. The attention to detail is the reason I would look to possibly rent from them again, but will be reluctant due to the price. The nightly rate was reasonable but once the cleaning fee and service fee is added, it becomes pretty steep and I am unsure of what the service fee entailed. Overall we enjoyed ourselves. I recommend bringing food to cook for your stay.

If you want an escape from the noise both figuratively and literally, this is the place for you. My wife and I noted several times how the literal quite of the desert helped us literally feel ourselves wind down. That further improved the whole relaxing nature the minimal home offered. You can drink coffee on a 65° morning in the summertime, drive to a breathtaking National park in 15 minutes, and gaze at the Milky Way from a hot tub in a single day. Like what?? This place is awesome. Highly recommend

5 stars all around. I wish I could give it 10 stars. This is a place of dreams. Everything is so well thought out. In June we were able to sit outside in the bean bag loungers and enjoy the breeze until at least 1pm without the desert sun bearing down on us. Super close to everything and nothing at the same time which was a GOOD thing. Cooking was an ease as they provided more than your $2 salt and pepper shakers....paprika, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, etc. I could go on and on about how much we loved it here. My husband and I can't wait to get back here or another Homestead Modern property in the near future.

The Pause House provided a once in a life time moment for us during our stay. We felt very secluded as how we liked it to be and since the distance to the neighboring houses was great, we couldn’t see or hear them. The instructions for the location and amenities were thoroughly provided and they were clear. If you have a lot of luggage, hike from the car-hut to the house could be a little challenge however the provided off-road dolly makes it super easy. There were huge trash bins provided near the garage area and it comes with an electric EV charger. The view out the patio is just magnificent. Words cannot describe how beautiful it can be. The jacuzzi during sunset was truly amazing. I would love to comeback here.

We absolutely loved our stay. Such an amazing and unique rental situated in the pristine high desert. We felt close enough to so much as well. We spent a week in total here, which felt like the perfect amount of time. We spent three half days in Joshua Tree National Park, spent a day in Newport Beach, spent a day in Palm Springs, and took many trips to the Red Dog Saloon in Pioneertown (do yourself a favor and treat yourself to their tacos). We also interspersed relaxing at the Pause AM house in the hot tub, star gazing at night, and cooking on the grill. The washer and dryer was an amazing bonus and it made packing light easy to do. Our recommendation would be to rent a 4 wheel drive car. We had a 4Runner and it was perfect. This also made Joshua Tree more accessible. Catch as many sunsets as possible from the lounge cushions, take as many outdoor showers as possible, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the desert. Definitely an amazing place to collect your thoughts and escape for a bit.
