This is a unique house created by a sculptor, and master builder. It is made of many found things, rock and glass. The house if filled with local artist paintings and sculpture. It has three bedrooms 2.5 baths and a heated rock cowboy tub. It is nestled into the back hills boardering the national park and sits on the Joshua Tree butte with a view of the Morongo basin and Big Bear Mountain area. The master bedroom contains a queen size bed and a master bath with sunken tub, the guest bath has a claw tub, and unique stone shower. The guest room has a queen size bed and private entrance. The secondary guest has a single bed. There is an additional half bath. There is a large fire place in the living room with cathedral-esque ceilings, and a 25 foot sofa made of rock and comfortably cushioned. There is another fire place in the front family room, and 3 wood stoves through out the house. There are gas heaters mounted on the walls, and floor heat. The cooling is by evaporative cooler. The house is unique and fun, but check out the New York Times article on the creator and his house just google Randy Polumbo New York Times, and click on 'On location...Cutting Loose in the California Desert.'

You can spend early evenings in the heated cowboy tub, among the rocks, after hiking, rock climbing, or just driving through the gorgeous Joshua Tree Park.

There are restaurants, art galleries, live theatre, music festivals, and we are only 25 minutes from Desert Hot Springs and its famous hot tubs and pool where you can spend the day for one small price.

The Salton Sea is an 1 1/2 hrs away with fishing, swimming, and boating. LA and the Ocean communities are 2 1/2 hrs away for a great day trip.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
So secluded and cool. There's all this rad art on the wall. Every room has something to catch your eye nearly every time you go in. Great fire pit. Great rocks. This place was made for mushrooms.

eclectic weekend

  • 5 of 5
we had such a memorable stay here! what a great weekend escape and in a place that absolutely met our expectations. I look forward to going again.
my only comment would be that the 'loft' accommodations aren't really for adults but rather for kids, which was perfect in our case. The 2 mattresses are blow ups and not the most comfortable for a couple.
We loved everything else about the property!

Great place - very unique and close to the park

  • 5 of 5
The house is very unique and great to explore. It's a perfect location to be remote, but still close to the park. Would come back any day.

Ideal Joshua Tree Escape

  • 4 of 5
This house was perfect. It had kind of a steampunk/Burning Man vibe and was packed with personality. It was secluded enough to give my group the privacy we wanted, but it was still within an easy drive to the restaurants and stores in town. The backyard opens onto the stars, Joshua Trees and some amazing vistas. The only "issue" - and I use that loosely - was that the hot tub/plunge pool didn't seem to be working when we got there, but it was December so we weren't really planning on using it anyway. All in all, a great stay. We'll be back. Thank you!
