At first glance, the white structure looks like it could be an art installation of Desert X, the premier, site-specific exhibition where artists craft works in response to the California desert's striking visual landscape.
Even better, it's a home you can stay in, set on ten acres of cactus, boulders and those iconic, Seussian Joshua Trees that have long drawn creative types.
You'll approach by dirt road and total desert immersion, and the gleaming minimalist structure will come into a marvelous view.

Property Rules • We’re in a wildfire hazard zone -— please do not light open flames of any kind outdoors, especially when it’s windy. • There is a no-smoking policy at Sol to Soul. That said, there is an ashtray on the coffee table on the back patio because the risk of wildfire is insanely real here. Please distinguish & dispose of cigarettes responsibly. • Please respect the neighbors. Between the quiet hours of 10pm - 8am please do not play amplified music or make loud noises of any kind. • Pick up any trash, particularly when turning in at night. Loose trash can easily be blown into the open desert by the wind. • Please do not take indoor furniture outside. The only furniture that is suitable for outdoor use will be outside when you arrive. • Please do not use bedroom blankets outside. Courtesy outdoor-use blankets can be found in the basket by the sliding door in the living room (next to the basket of Turkish towels for the hot tub). • We have provided a French press and Chemex for coffee, but do not dispose of grinds in the sink / garbage disposal. These should be dumped in the trash, please. Maximum Occupancy The number of people who may be at the property at any one time is the same number of renters stated on the reservation confirmation. In other words – no non-renting guests are permitted. If you would like to invite guests over for drinks or dinner you must receive permission ahead of time from us. No more than two cars are allowed on the property at a time without permission. Cars may only be parked in designated parking areas – never alongside the roads/drives. If the renter wants to seek permission to vary from any of these occupancy and/or parking requirements you must receive permission ahead of time from us. Violation of these rules could result in loss of your deposit or a cancellation of your reservation resulting in eviction. We plan ahead for our cleaners, our neighbors, and base the added rates on the impact from the added guests. Internet Usage & Liabilities An illegal or abusive use of Internet access is not allowed.
