Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Just 7 miles from the town of 29 Palms and the east entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. 360 degree views amid the peace and quiet, beauty and wonder. Perry created a stimulating yet restful desert environment where indoor and outdoor osmosis expands your exposure to the desert he loves. Simple design mixed with intricate patterns excite the eye. Touches of luxury, whimsy, and function make the visitor feel safe but also adventurous. Begin to sense the quiet.

The Tile House sits in the middle of the vast and open desert. You need not walk two feet to be a part of the wilderness, now it is up to you to look around both micro and macro and see what you can see here. Jack Rabbits, Cottontails, Ravens, Scorpions, Desert Iguana, Snakes, Gambel’s Quail, Lesser Night Hawks, Owls, Coyotes, Roadrunners, Sphinx Moths and Kangaroo Rats, flash floods, dust devils, lightening storms, sunsets, summer rains, empty roads, wildflowers and cacti are some of things you might happen to see. So see what you can see. Walk gently in nature. At night, absorb the clear starry skies and August and November meteor showers.

Cradled inside an inspiring work of art you find yourself situated in complete silence, watching the desert light crawl across the vast and intricate landscape around you.

You are ironically completely alone in the middle of nowhere and the center of the universe.

This is the home oƒ artist, Perry Hoffman… however, when not in use it is available as a vacation rental of the most unusual kind. This wilderness home is a treasure trove and visual ƒeast for the eyes.

An indoor Buddha fountain sets a perfect tone for meditation. A two bedroom house with outdoor hot tub and gated courtyard with firepit. iPod dock with speakers. Laundry facility on site. Fireplace and Pellet Stove. A dog-door for your pet to access a fenced and secure yard. Great for large get togethers or a romantic get a way. SL€€PS six

About The Owner

I am an artist currently living in both Santa Barbara and Wonder Valley. The beauty of the desert brought me to the area. I have photographed extensively over the last ten years. I am also a mosaic artist and have been creating the Tile House, a ten year project. The house is full of whimsy and tile, comfy and welcoming. The outside is a wilderness of OPEN desert that holds beauty every day as the sun sets and rises over this BIG sky and expansive place.

The mountains to the south are Joshua Tree National Park and is easily accessible, only 7 miles away form the headQuarters and entrance.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose California

A wonderful house with warmth and character

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely amazing few nights at the tile house. As soon as we arrived us people and our dog felt completely at home and relaxed. The seclusion and uniqueness of the house make for an experience like no other. You can spend your whole trip lounging around the house marveling at the walls and decorations without getting bored. We are already talking about how excited we are to go back!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was a mix of art, spiritual and dessert retreat. The house had so much to look at we spent most of the morning looking at the exterior while enjoying a cup of coffee.

The property direction provided are spot on so follow it as close as you can. There isn't much out there for markers otherwise to find the house. Fortunately the Christmas Lights helped the little house stand out as late as we arrived. The beds were oh so comfy. The scent of oils, herbs and sage filled the home and relaxed you to sleep. It is a lot larger than the images on the website make it out to be. No actual "doors" for the bedrooms but that didn't bother us at all.

House was very clean except for a little sandy feeling on the floor but to be expected with the wind gusting 30mph the night before.

Owners were very quick to answer questions we had via email and followed up the next day to make sure we were happy with the stay.

We will be back for sure. It's booked out pretty well in advance so don't hesitate if you are interested. We wanted to book for a few weeks out but found it already taken. We may wait till winter time to enjoy the dessert in a different season.

Treasure Trove

  • 4 of 5

Staying at the tile house was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable, and we all slept well. There is an endless sense of discovery, beginning with the tile, and stretching out into other art work, books, and the desert beyond. We arrived at dusk, and finding things like light switches was something of a treasure hunt. Ultimately we figured out all the workings of the house, and found it fun and entertaining along the way. As is everything in life, it was all about having the right state of mind...The hot tub was awesome, saw several shooting stars. Wish we would have stayed longer, we felt very at home. Thank you!
