A spot of quirky, camp cowboy fun in the desert, this 1940s cabin was redesigned in 2020 by TV-stylist and interior design guru Doug Wiand. The frontier-style home has mixed kitsch wild west with luxury modernity: think chequered curtains, planked ceilings and pine stable doors contrasting against a jade green tiled kitchen and reclaimed artwork. When you're not sheltering from the heat on one of the velvet sofas or soaking in the free-standing bath, the backyard offers a taste of the desert life. During the day, shelter from the Californian sunshine on the patio or nab the shaded hammock - though Joshua Tree National Park is only a 25-minute drive from here, if adventure comes calling. As the sun starts to set over the rugged plains, the outdoor hot tub is on hand to unwind, while one of your party lights up the BBQ. As the stars come out, huddle around the firepit to keep warm, with the lack of light pollution perfect for meteor spotting - or was it another potential sighting of a UFO that this area is famous for?
Home truths: *The hot tub should only be used after dark; a win-win if you are wanting to stargaze
*Hot tub maintenance happens every Wednesday morning – let’s make sure all guests are fully robed by then
*Being desert-situated, the WiFi will not be as strong as it is in the city
*To reach this isolated home, you must drive down a sandy track. We recommend bringing an SUV
