About phillip maberry

Artists living and working in Landers. My partner and I built our house in 2007. We moved here from New York state after living there for over 25 years. Tired of the brutal winters & high humidity in summer, we find the High-Desert a welcome change.

phillip maberry purchased this house in 2007

Why phillip maberry chose Inland Empire

As the sign states when you enter Landers ' Land of Endless Vistas '. that's what brought us here.

What makes this house unique

On average , there are 283 sunny days per year , the brightest full moon, the darkest night sky and the most stars you will ever see .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home ! We enjoyed our stay here in the desert with various hikes and trips to Joshua Tree park . Our evenings were filled with cooking in your perfectly equipped kitchen, the fresh herbs from the garden, the incredible views , the silence and peaceful location. Take care !

The Get Away

  • 5 of 5

So first of all, we wanted a place where we could forget about everything for a few days. And this was perfect. The house was extremely clean and very well kept. The artwork is terrific, everywhere you looked there was something interesting and fun. Phillip gave us great directions, unfortunately we were not able to meet him, but he was in touch with us to make sure we got there ok. We would positively recommend this

house to our friends, but we kinda like to keep it a secret too! We did not venture out, we just chilled, and went in the pool, bbq, cocktails, it was perfect!!

So we will be back, our little dog loved it too, the property is all enclosed, so we did not have to worry about her getting out, or anything getting in.

All in all, wonderful place, a lot of thought went into this house. Very positive, happy vibe there. This beats a hotel any time!!

Charming and relaxing desert escape

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely amazing! So many interesting details to take in and great accommodations for a very comfortable stay. Though there was plenty of interesting sights nearby I found myself drawn to the house and the relaxing environment encompassed. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone looking to enjoy the High Desert and plan to be back soon myself.

Great stay to get away from it all...

  • 5 of 5

There is not much to do around this home and that is exactly what I was looking for. Gorgeous views of the desert, good energy, quiet, mod and comfy home to relax. In fact, you are forced to do nothing but relax at this place...quite a change for those of us with a busy life. I stayed with my husband and 2-year old son. During the day we drove to Joshua Tree to hike and relaxed in the late afternoon and evening. Perfect weekend. Thank you!

Exceptional Home!

  • 5 of 5

Phillip made us feel right at home and was very communicative from the get-go. My wife is from Europe and needless to stay her tastes are extremely particular........she and my daughters were blown away by this modern home in the desert with incredible views and tasteful (and artful) decor. Even though the property is in a remote area, it is close to great cuisine at La Copine just down the road, not to mention convenient grocery stores in Yucca Valley. Each night we watched movies on the big screen which was an extra bonus.

If you're looking for a quiet and modern place to clear your head and to get away from the chaos which is the majority of California, don't hesitate to book this property! The views of the desert expanses and night skies are priceless.

Thanks Phillip!

The Holiday House by Phillip is absolutely F***ing amazing! He has really thought about everything when designing his perfect custom home. The vibe is perfect. The home and property is a work of art in itself. During our "trip", we spent hours exploring the property's fun hidden gems. You have to check out the details to know what I mean. You really don't notice these things in the pictures. The place in person is mind blowing. We spent a great deal of time laying out on the grass covered lawn chairs, stargazing. This was my favorite. It was at the Holiday House, where I truly gained a newfound love and appreciation for our night's sky. Breathtaking. The home was spotless upon our arrival. There is absolutely anything you would need in their fully stocked kitchen to prepare a great home cooked meal, from plates and bowls of all sizes, pots, pans, down to all kinds of seasonings. Far from the basics. We danced to tunes we played through the integrated speaker system and took advantage of the movie projector. The outdoor spaces were just perfection with tons of room to play games, bonfire, lounge, swim or do whatever. You have to spend nights outdoors here. Take a look around and just be amazed. The enclosed property kept my doggie safe and he had tons of fun exploring himself.

I seriously can't get over how much fun we had at this beautiful home and my friend and I are planning to come back once a year. But really though Phillip, how you come up with this?! Masterpiece.
