Leave your troubles behind and bask in the beauty of nature. The National Park begins a short walk up the road. Enjoy stunning hiking trails into a desirable, but little known area of (south) Joshua Tree.
A landmark straw bale house with a single bedroom with a queen size bed, a 'great room' with single trundle beds (2 beds) (possibility for others to be added) and a lush garden with big vistas of desert and mountains. A very restful place used as an artist residency most of the time.
Perfect as a romantic couples getaway or for a group. By evening cozy up to a crackling fire in the courtyard. Cook your meals in the well-equipped kitchen and snuggle into soft covers by night. There are ample fresh linens for a party of four. (Additional beds could be added.) In the morning sip fresh brewed coffee while staring into expansive vistas in every direction. The large picture windows overlook far away mountains and desert. This is a landmark straw bale house with a 16' vaulted ceiling. Hot tub located in an enclosed courtyard just outside the bathroom.

Why Eva Soltes chose Joshua Tree
Perfect Desert Getaway has uninterrupted views of the mountains and desert. The 'locals' entrance 1/2 mile up the street to Joshua Tree National Park features some of the most beautiful hiking in the national park and is accessible from the front door. This house is used for artist residencies and is made available to the public when not in use for that purpose.
What makes this House unique
Location Location Location! The Perfect Desert Getaway iis convenient to the town of Joshua Tree, in between the two major entrances into the park with easy to access to the 'village of Joshua Tree' and the 29 Palms area where there are beautiful murals and restaurants to enjoy.

Art as Life!
What a beautiful space to retreat to from the craziness of our world. Our stay was perfect from the yummy Joshua Tree coffee left for us by our host... to the visually rich art inlaid everywhere you looked....and so many more sweet touches which made this house a perfect place to stay for us. My husband and I came here for a romantic birthday weekend that happened to align with the star showers of persiod. The hot tub provided a perfect place to view the sky in all it's glory. Beautifully maintained and built, this 'hay' house was the perfect den base for hiking, soaking up nature and communing with all that Joshua Tree is. We absolutely were transformed.
a soulful experience
inspiring, magical ! transporting. traveled to Jt many times many homes i didnt want to leave this place holds you safe and comforts you in every way.
Thank you Jonathan. It was a pleasure hosting you.
Sublime: the house, the setting and Eva Soltes herself.
The fact that you're staying in a place that the amazing composer Lou Harrison's built just adds to the awesomeness of the experience. The house is simple and aesthetically exquisite as befits an artist's home. Eva has done a great job of preserving the spirit of natural wonder and creative inspiration that surely drew Harrison to this spot. Just magic.
My 5 friends and I had an incredible weekend at this beautiful, unique property. We got to enjoy Joshua Tree by day, and the hot tub, great kitchen, and beautiful space outside by night. I couldn't imagine us returning to Joshua Tree and staying anywhere else! And I must second the comments about it's great energy - wonderful!
