Welcome to our home away from home. As retro and tiki enthusiasts, we've tried to bring a funky, eclectic feel to our 1965 ranch home. We bought it in 2018 and have remodeled it to bring our vision - of a retro ranch in the desert - to life. Take a time machine back to a bygone era at our place. From the fun wallpaper and artwork, down to the teapot in the kitchen and records in the den, every little detail has been chosen with love. Come hike, relax, and soak in the hot tub under the stars!

The space
Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and lots of places to hang in the large open living/dining space with 8-person dining table along with breakfast bar and stools, and dining nook with a 4-person retro dinette. In addition to the living room, there's a den where you'll find a TV equipped with Roku, Netflix, and Disney+ along with a piano, acoustic guitar, and cajon disguised as a side table.) Have a listen to our vinyl record collection, and enjoy board games, cards, and books during your stay. And out back you'll find a lovely patio with plenty of seating and a hot tub (it's supposedly a 7-person tub but we'd personally call it a 4 to 5-person tub), and feel free to use our small gas grill or full kitchen to make meals during your stay!

PLEASE NOTE: our full property is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and the entire home is available to rent. When you book it as a more economical 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom (via this listing), the master suite will be locked off during your stay. Nobody else will be on the property - it's all yours - but you will not have access to the master suite.

I sing soul songs and sell real estate in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree. I travel as often as I can and am always on the hunt for good food and deep conversation.
