Come in, drop your bags, and breathe — this is the ultimate soothing retreat for a couple of adventurers who need to get away from the hustle and bustle. Being this close to Joshua Tree National Park is a major perk and you'll be glad to hear that you'll be staying a short drive away from the entrance – but it's also possible to begin desert hikes right from your doorstep. For days when you'd rather stay put, the hosts can arrange a range of wellness activities to help you relax – think massages, facials, yoga and sound baths. At the end of the day, watch the sun dip below the horizon with a cold drink on the porch before you do some stargazing. Thanks to its location in the Yucca Valley, this five acre property is far away from light pollution, giving you an excellent view of the pristine starry skies.
Home truths: * The house rules are quite strict — no smoking and no parties anywhere on the premises
* You'll need a car to get around the area comfortably — the public transport isn't frequent enough
* Sound travels fast and far in the deserts the host asks you to keep it down after ten pm
