Perks for the Parents

An artistically designed desert retreat set amongst glorious mountain scenery, with the Joshua Tree national park and amenities of Yucca Valley on the door step. It sleeps 8. Styled by a film production designer, every space in this home feels like it’s part of a movie set with bright colors, handpicked art and furnishings, and creative curation throughout. With plenty of indoor space and a fully enclosed outdoor yard full of games, parents can relax knowing the kids are contained as well as entertained. The outdoor yard is thoughtfully landscaped with lots of shady nooks designed for enjoying a quiet moment, including a meditation tent, a hammock paddock and sun loungers galore. The large saltwater pool is the perfect place to cool off at hotter times of day, while the newly installed hot tub with LED lighting comes into its own as the sun sets. There’s a feature propane firepit for night time gathering and star gazing, and a poker/card table, as well as a home cinema inside for keeping the entertainment going. Parents can be sure of a restful night with luxurious bedding, stylish ensuite bathrooms and a roomy kingsize bed in the primary bedroom.

Why Kids Love it

With over an acre of fully enclosed garden space, a national park on the doorstep and desert scenery all around, this is the perfect base for mini adventurers. Nature loving kids will love exploring desert trails with accessible hiking routes and plenty of cacti and wildlife to spot including desert cottontails, quail, insects, snakes, Albino lizards and endangered kangaroo mice. When taking a break from desert adventuring, there’s plenty on offer at home to entertain with a salt water swimming pool big enough for the whole family, a volley ball net, pool and ping pong tables as well as hammocks and a tipi to relax in. For downtime, there’s a smart TV and a retractable movie screen with 100" Roku projector, both with the spectrum app to stream live TV or play a favourite film. Bedroom 4 is a designated kids’ room with bunk beds and playful décor, doubling as an additional chill out zone for kids looking for some space of their own. Meal times are lots of fun, with an outdoor grill and alfresco dining table for sunset BBQ’s. A firepit with campfire seating is the perfect gathering spot come nightfall for stargazing and S’mores.

Style Notes

Desert oasis. A playful home designed to delight and entertain its guests, with thoughtfully curated wall papers, artworks and furnishings. Drawing on inspiration from nature, the interiors incorporate bold leafy patterns and rich, earthy colors to create a stylish, contemporary feel that echoes its rugged surroundings. Every space is unique with a room for every mood, from the fun colorful waves and shapes of the kids’ bedroom to the vibrant neon pinks of the living room and the elegant chandelier of the red dining room, setting the scene nicely for evening soirees. The yard is dotted with lively colored pots of cacti and various trees and shrubs which are beacons of green amongst the arid landscape. Hammocks and outdoor seating create the perfect perching spots from which to watch one of the spectacular sun sets or indulge in some star gazing. We love the inviting saltwater pool which is perfect for dreamy swims beneath the endless skies while soaking up some desert rays.

Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree

Art, the desert and a dose of bohemian living

This town in San Bernardino County, California is great for a weekend getaway from Los Angeles or San Diego, and sits on the edge of the Joshua Tree National Park. Expect art, the desert and a healthy dose of bohemia. Rock climbing and hikes are firmly on the list of things to do nearby; add to that small animals, and nearby Pioneertown, a former Western set turned tourist attraction, and the kids will be happy too.
