Summary Summary
The 14 suites comprising The Bungalows are situated on the historic Joshua Tree Retreat Center campus, surrounded by serenity and endless views of Joshua Trees but with the convenience of being just a mile away from The Village and National Park. The Bungalows are newly renovated in a manner that honors their midcentury architectural heritage, while providing the comforts of modern living. The Bungalows offer generous communal outdoor space and access to the Retreat Center pool and classes.
Space Space
Each room, while connected to one building, has its entrance and semi-private patio with seating.
This is an 18+ only property.

Rated one of Michelin Guide's Top Hotels worldwide for 2023

"The only way a hotel makes the cut is by having extraordinary style, service, and personality. It must be a jewel of its community, and it must never, ever be boring.” - Lucy Lieberman, International Director of MICHELIN Guide Hotels

"Since debuting in 2010, Homestead Modern has earned a reputation as the leader in offering the High Desert’s most chic remote accommodations ...Now the company is expanding to offer a hotel-style destination, firmly cementing its foothold in desert hospitality.” - C Magazine

On the edge of Joshua Tree National Park, where a forest of wild paloverde trees meets towering granite boulders, the Joshua Tree Retreat Center welcomes the first traditional premium hospitality offering in the area. The 14 suites, now known as The Bungalows, were designed and constructed in 1960 by the architect Harold Zook as accommodations for the site’s on-campus teachers. Located in the northwest corner of the center’s more than 130 acres of desert, The Bungalows still feature their original wood exteriors, while the interiors seem sun-bleached, with earthy jute and sea grass rugs, woven cane-backed chairs, and intricate millwork to evoke a bare-sand feel.

The spaces were redeveloped by the hospitality company Homestead Modern and restored in collaboration with the consulting designer Brad Dunning; as a nod to the work of the Swiss architect Albert Frey, the rooms are accented with yellow textiles the color of Encelia flowers, a hue popularized by Frey in his modernist structures in nearby Palm Springs.

Floor-to-ceiling glass panels and sleek concrete floors blend with expansive outdoor patios and the views beyond. During a stay, guests can cook in their kitchen, on the site’s communal grills or dine at the retreat center’s vegetarian cafe.

HOMESTEAD MODERN & SELF CHECK-IN:
Guests of The Bungalows enjoy the same level of hospitality as those of Homestead Modern’s properties in the High Desert. With simple design changes and integration of technology, we strive to reduce unnecessary contact with your environment, reduce congestion points, enhance cleaning protocols, and offer our guests a low-touch experience with high guest service. We utilize an intelligent lock for each Bungalow that creates a unique code for each guest, allowing a self check-in process.

There is no front desk, though our local support team is available from 9am-9 pm daily via phone, text, or email, and our General Manager is on the property from Thursday through Monday from 10 am - 6 pm to assist with any and all questions.

Through our partnership with Public Goods, guests of The Bungalows will find a refrigerator and pantry stocked with healthy and sustainable snacks and drinks upon arrival. These items are available for purchase (added to your bill at check-out).

Neighborhood Neighborhood
Right outside of Joshua Tree Village, this area is secluded but offers easy access to the quirky, eclectic, and vibrant collection of unique High Desert shops, restaurants, and music venues. When you’re ready to explore, Joshua Tree National Park’s West Entrance is an 8-minute drive away.

You can find great eats, drinks, shops, and things to do within steps of your front door. Here are a few recommendations:

Dog owners agree to the following additional rules: use protective sheets to cover any place where your dog may lie (we are not equipped to shampoo furniture or rugs or dry clean bedding after your departure); dogs must be leashed at all times when outside (there are coyotes in the High Desert, which present danger to unleashed dogs) and owners must immediately pick up after their dogs and deposit waste in a plastic bag and place it in the garbage bin; dogs are not to be left unattended in the property at any time.

Great place to stay, however, there is light pollution, given there are multiple bungalows in the area, so if you want somewhere, extremely dark, this is not the place for you. Also, the company uses a third party app which is a little bit annoying giving your personal information for another app when you already use Airbnb. Overall, I would still recommend a place and we enjoyed our stay.

We arrived late after a long day of work, the home was incredible. Woke up very early to watch the sunrise in Joshua which is very close to get there! Perfect place to stay and close to Joshua Tree National Park. A after watching the sunset and being at the park for two hours we rushed back to enjoy the incredible view of this place. We weren’t so lucky with the weather but this place made it feel like we were outdoors yet we were inside enjoying the incredible view! Overall I will come back and stay here for more than a night.

The Bungalows were beautiful and peaceful. It’s the perfect way to unplug, especially since the space is T.V free and a few games were provided with the stay. The space was a little smaller than expected but still so cute & modern. It had ample space to be outdoors and overlook the local scenery and also sit outdoors. I would definitely recommend Homestead listings to others.

Beautiful view and the property felt new and well maintained. Lots of great touches of home and there was a nice closet space which made it feel very easy to settle in and unpack. Shower pressure and temp was excellent, especially after a long day of bouldering at JTree. Loved all of the nice touches in the kitchen as well, everything was provided.

The space was beautiful along with what felt clean and safe, exactly what I was looking for in a quick getaway. The host was super clear and check-in was smooth. I would definitely recommend and even stay again if I find myself in the area.

The Bungalows by Homestead Modern will go down as one of my favorite spontaneous trips of all time. I booked this place literally days before and was greeted with check-in information and welcoming info almost immediately. Check-in was easy enough through a door keypad. The room itself was amazing - location is close to many shopping centers in town but far enough to also feel secluded. Joshua Tree National Park is also just a short drive away. The views from our room were immaculate, with many natural joshua trees just outside the room, and a killer sunset beyond the mountains. Sheets, towels, and kitchen were fully stocked for two. Included cards and board game made the nights more exciting and made electronics unnecessary. Overall 5/5.

The bungalows are stunning and were exactly as described. So many small details have been considered and make for a wonderful stay. The kitchen and bbq facilities allow you to cook at home and truely appreciate the beautiful space and surroundings for sunrise and sunset. Even the pool area which isn’t renovated yet is still a lovely space. Couldn’t recommend the bungalows more for your Joshua tree accomodation.

I can only begin to describe how perfect The Bungalows are. I’m quite fussy when it comes to Airbnbs, but I genuinely don’t have a single criticism to make with this one. This was the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in - from the location (which is the perfect balance of remote/desert but not so far from other places that you feel isolated), to the stunning and luxurious decor, to the thoughtful touches left in the property. If we’re ever travelling near Joshua Tree again we will absolutely be rebooking!

The bungalow studio was absolutely perfect for a quick weekend getaway. Quiet with beautiful touches that really made the day extra cozy. We sat out near the overlook to watch the stars and the sunrise the following morning. It almost felt like we were “glamping”. We also used the bbq which cooked our steaks to perfection. The built in water filter was top notch and definitely came in handy instead of drinking tap water. We are definitely planning to stay again

We absolutely loved the Bungalow in every detail it offered and breathtaking view. A wonderfully peaceful getaway that included every detail to let us enjoy the night. Host is great with communication and thoughtful in accommodations. The grounds are peaceful and scenic. We especially enjoyed waking up to the beautiful sunrise and then taking our coffee out to the patio. It’s beautiful!

We absolutely loved our stay. The views from our bungalow were incredible. The bungalow has everything we needed. The location was perfect for quick access to Joshua Tree and the park entrance. We wished we could have stayed longer.

HM created an incredible experience. The place was simple, beautiful, and tranquil out in the dessert. Easy to locate and kept very private and clean. The space is bright and luxurious with a porch to enjoy. I joined a yoga class that was exceptional. There is outdoor space to explore, shops and cafes nearby, and near to JT National Park.

Our stay was amazing. We came here for my girlfriend's birthday, they surprised her with flowers and her favorite cake. The place was clean, modern, and the views were amazing. If you are in Joshua Tree, I would suggest staying here!

This is a nice modern retreat. Very much a "get away and unplug" kind of vibe despite the high quality WiFi. Kitchen and bathroom are well appointed. Be aware there is no TV, so if you prefer to unwind by watching TV you'll have to do so on your own device. Highway noise can be an issue depending on where you are in the compound and what is between you and the highway. The roads to and from the actual bungalows can be confusing so pay close attention to the signs.

Loved our stay at the bungalows! Room was aesthetically pleasing, informative, and clean. Check in and out process was very easy and it seemed like we had almost the whole property to ourselves. Early morning wildlife was cool and we even had a bobcat visitor right outside our door. Also were able to do a monthly community sound bath on property that was very enjoyable and relaxing. Already planning our next trip out here.

Our stay was amazing! Everything was perfection :) We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday, and they even left a really nice gift and card to welcome us. The room was gorgeous and the entire campus was quiet and serene. All of the linens, kitchen items, and even extras like binoculars were ultra premium but still felt homey. We used the jacuzzi and had a relaxing time (we had the place to ourselves and it was huge). We didn't cook or BBQ, so I can't comment on that, but it looked great (and we plan to when we return)! Communication was great and the little touches made our special little holiday even more special - definitely will be recommending this place to friends!

The spot it’s really nice! Just how it looks in the pictures. It rain the last day so we couldn’t do a hike we planned but also the view from the bungalow was really nice while raining. I suggest a little more directions to get to the place because the map took us to the old part of the place I think. Oh we cooked there and they have a lot of stuff to cook! Even BBQ’s outside if you want to

This was my first Air BnB, a solo trip that I booked at the last minute for my 53rd birthday. It was perfect, just incredible. I will absolutely return, again and again. After a brief miscommunication/missed email and a slight lag in contact, the good people and CEO of Homestead reached out to me and smoothed out the small wrinkles. Their prices were fair, including cleaning fees, which truly deterred me from many places. It was quaint, serene and the amenities were thoughtful and perfect. Their local coffee was outstanding, the bedding was organic, comfortable and honestly, I was only there two days, but felt completely rested. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect and a perfect distance from my bungalow. I felt completely safe and really appreciated the efforts the team at Homestead went to making my 53rd solar return worthwhile. Hmmm, where will I end up for my 54th…?!

Really loved our stay at this Joshua Tree oasis. The regular and heated pool were a dream. The room was beautifully furnished and well equipped with all your essentials. Snacks and drinks were available for purchase in the fridge and cabinets. The resort itself was clean, well landscaped, quiet, and giving me the all the 70s mid century modern feels that I didn’t know I needed. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!

We booked this spot super last minute, and were blown away by how perfect it was for us! Amazing view, the most ideal for star gazing, which we did every night. Close by pool. Full kitchen. And pretty central to all major Joshua Tree activities. We crossed paths with Kelly on our way in. She was so sweet and helpful! We really loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it!

Absolutely loved staying at the HM Bungalow. The views and grounds are gorgeous. The decor is very chic and hip, very Joshua Tree. There were unique touches that made the place feel so special. Communication and check in was very easy. Location is excellent. I went shopping and to National Park with ease given close driving proximity. Will definitely be back!

Wow, this place is a dream come true. The architecture alone would be enough to make me happy! But the goodness doesn't stop there-they seriously raised the Airbnb bar. Great natural light and stunning views, super private and quiet, brand new mid-century modern interior aesthetic, big comfy bed, high end linens and towels. The kitchen is not just well-equipped, it's well-equipped with high quality dishes, pans, knives….they've thought of everything. Great cold AC too, I was there when it was 106 degrees out and was nice and cool inside. It’s also sealed really well and 1/4 mile or so at least back from the road so that you can barely if at all hear the highway when you’re inside. The pool is great too--just a short walk through the grounds which were cool to see (some sculpures, a cafe and bookstore etc). I loved this place so much that I didn't want to leave! I will absolutely be back.

Really well equipped and beautifully clean room. Everything from the dressing gowns to the plates and cutlery were all carefully chosen with brands they partnered with which was cool to see and made the room feel very chic. The view outside our window was gorgeous. The swimming pool on the property is really lovely too and nice and refreshing.

Pictures do not lie this place is absolutely beautiful. I’d use one word to describe this oasis and call it serenity. My fiancé and I stayed just one night and the view itself is mesmerizing. Our bed gave us an amazing view of the desert and an incredible night sleep. Super comfortable super spacious and absolutely perfect for two (even one). 10,000x recommended cannot wait to return for an entire weekend :)

Such a wonderful stay for our first time in Joshua Tree. The bungalow had everything we needed stocked with really nice brands. We loved the books that came in the room and read them throughout the weekend. Our bungalow was on the corner perched above a beautiful view where we’d wake up for sunrise and watch all the wildlife like coyotes, rabbits, quail, etc. Location was perfect. A short drive to the park, shops + restaurants. Definitely check out Wine + Rock shop to grab a good bottle of wine. We’ll definitely stay again in the future :)

There was a full kitchen with designer cookware and a bed was super comfy. This place had everything we needed.

This place tugs at my heart strings. If you are a fan of architecture and mid century modern style this is the place for you. They list all of their products/brands they include in the bungalow and I’m glad because I wanted everything in there! The bed is so comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to cook. The French press with local coffee - amazing. Came for a relaxing weekend in the sun to get away from May gray and got exactly that. The only complaint is the listing could be a bit more clear on the pool situation- it is next to a building that looks abandoned and had a spooky feel but has a rich history architecturally and spiritually. Other than that will gladly return and recommend to friends/ family

I had an amazing stay at Homestead Modern. The apartment is as amazing as pictured, offers great appliances in the kitchen and beautiful views of Joshua Tree. To my surprise, the kitchen even had filtered water from an RO system! The entire place was very clean. The staff was very responsive when I needed more coffee, because the coffee is so delicious and the French press is wonderful! Thanks for everything Homestead Modern :)

Airbnb is located in a beautiful location and is very well designed. The view is spectacular during sunset and sunrise! We did have some confusion about checking in and the codes required for locking our door securely- wish we could have a unique code or set one up. However, we enjoyed the Airbnb.

What a stunningly beautiful and peaceful space! I was looking for a home away from home and Homestead Modern nailed it. The quiet, yet central location was perfect for my first visit to Joshua Tree. The decor in the rooms is calming and very high-end. I loved the details like the local ceramic coffee mugs and all the outdoor seating options. It was hard to leave to go to the park! This was the perfect place for the quiet rest and reflection I was seeking in Joshua Tree. I look forward to returning and highly recommend Homestead Modern!
