Great location
100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Built in 1957, this newly renovated 1800 sq. ft. ranch house sits on 5 acres of tranquil Mohave Desert. The nearest home is a quarter-mile away, and Joshua Tree National Park, the Palms Bar, the 29 Palms Airport, and the 29 Palms Inn are still within a 15-minute drive. The home and outdoors inspire creativity. Daylight shines on nearby mountain ranges, and shooting stars & constellations appear clearly at night. Our place is good for solo adventurers, couples, groups, and families with kids.

Max couldn’t have been more helpful with getting there and helping with the entire stay. His place was gorgeous to say the least and having never gone to the desert and staying at Max’s. I could have imagine myself staying again much longer...

The wonderful backyard, the view, the silence, the spa, the BBQ, the toys for the kids, the proximity of the towns, the quick and effective communication with Chelsea and Max. We loved all of that! We hope to come back in the Mojave Desert soon!

Great secluded desert oasis. Just enough retro to evoke an escapist attitude while still enough modern to feel comfortable.

Desert landscape, incredible starry night sky, hot tub - what more do you need.

My husband, dog, and I had a great week at Max and Chelsea's place. It's a perfect space for painting, photography, meditation, lizard hunting (for the dog), writing, and just basking in the glorious Mojave. We left a few times to take photos in Joshua Tree and the Mojave Preserv…
