Simple Luxury in a Classic Desert Setting

This mid-century, ranch-style home was built in 1962 but has recently been restored by a Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife team, who wanted to create a minimalist desert sanctuary using a blend of raw, natural materials and contemporary luxuries.

It’s a great location for it, just minutes by car from the west entrance of the ever-alluring Joshua Tree National Park, with close proximity to great hiking trails as well as the town itself.

The house is situated on 3.6 acres of unfenced land, right in front of a giant stack of boulders. Just underneath the boulders is a salt-water hot tub that fits four, as well as an outdoor shower. There’s also a firepit with sweeping views of the surrounding desert, a rock and cactus garden courtyard, and a tea room with expansive sliders on both sides that open into the courtyard and the views beyond. All of which make the garden the ideal place to hang out and stargaze.

Inside, the house has a combination of high-end pieces, custom-made designs, vintage and antiques collected from around the world. The space is open-plan with large windows, a neutral palette of soft whites, creams and browns, and a sweeping concrete floor. We love the exposed wooden beams, the woven textures of the basketry and rugs, and the oversized huge kitchen island. But really it’s all about those views…

This modern vacation rental in Joshua Tree is the ideal escape for a family or group of friends wanting to run away from it all — and see for themselves why everyone loves Joshua Tree.

Description

Villa Kura has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and sleeps up to four guests, making it a great choice for a couple or group of friends. The property is easily accessed on paved roads, but there are no street lights at night, making the approach very dark.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Amenities include Dreamcloud mattresses with cashmere blend tufted euro tops, organic cotton bedding, down pillows, and Frette bath linens. Tech includes a 65″ Smart TV with HBO Go, Netflix and Hulu, and a Marshall Woburn bluetooth speaker.

The kitchen has a 10’ island, GE Café Series Appliances, small kitchen appliances by Breville, Vitamix blender, wine decanter, and both Chemex and Breville coffee makers. Organic coffee and teas are provided.

AROUND

This modern vacation rental in Joshua Tree is located 11 minutes by car from the west entrance of the National Park, and 6 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. There’s a trailhead just five minutes’ walk from the house that’s owned by the Mojave Land Trust and free of charge.

Palm Springs is less than an hour’s drive and fuather afield, the San Jacinto mountains rise above the desert floor and are lined with miles of hiking trails at a cooler elevation. Indian Canyon and Palm Canyon are also within driving distance for rural getaways in the Coachella Valley area. Los Angeles is a two-hour drive.

Notes- Not safe or suitable for children (0-12) and pets - Toxic plants on premises that can cause fatality. Certain features of the home are not safe for children.

- No smoking, parties, or events

- Check-in is anytime after 4PM and check out by 11AM

- Self check-in with smart lockbox and key

This is our home, not a hotel. Please respect it as you would your own. By booking and renting, you agree to abide to the following:

- Be considerate of the check-in and check-out times as our housekeepers require the full five hours to turnover the house. We have a smart lockbox which can only be opened with the access code starting from 4pm on the day of your check-in. (ie: the lockbox will NOT open if you try to open it at 3:45pm or any other time prior to 4pm).

- No shoes indoors and keep screen doors closed at all times. The desert is extremely dusty and has lots of loose cactus thorns on the grounds; the floors won’t feel clean during your stay if shoes are left on. We provide new slippers upon arrival. To avoid unexpected pests like rodents or scorpions coming in the house, always keep the screen doors closed when the sliding glass doors are open. Being up against the boulders, we get very active wildlife on the property.

- No loud noises, outdoor amplified music, fireworks, firearms or drones. Quiet time is 10pm - 8am. We’re located in a small peaceful neighborhood with longtime neighbors who are mostly retired and don’t wish to be disturbed. We can’t stress enough that the desert air is extremely thin and even the sound of normal talking outside can travel very far. If we receive any calls about a noise disturbance from our neighbors or the police, guests will be asked to vacate the property immediately.

- No commercial photo or film shoots allowed without prior consent since these have different rates. This also applies to sponsored social media posts promoting a product or brand. If you’re confused as to what constitutes a commercial shoot, just ask. $2000 per violation plus $250/hr production fee.

- No unauthorized guests or parties allowed; events and workshops require prior consent since these have different rates. Only the reserved guests at the time of booking are allowed on the property at any given time during your stay; this includes daytime and overnight guests. $2000 per violation plus $80/pp charge for every unauthorized guest on the property.

- No pets allowed and not suitable for children under twelve years of age. Our property is unfenced and has toxic plants on the premises that can cause fatality if ingested. $500 fine per violation plus necessary cleaning/repair fees if evidence of unauthorized pets are found.

- Smoking is absolutely prohibited indoors. Smoking can only be outdoors and at least 20 feet away from the house (please close all doors and windows while smoking). All cigarette butts must be put out and disposed of in the trash; do not litter on the property. $500 fine per violation for odors present indoors and litter found outside.

- Always shut off the firepit and gas levers when not in use. Keep the hot tub lid securely closed and buckled when not in use. The water attracts wildlife and they may fall in and drown.

- We have a lot of vintage and antique pieces collected through the years that are very dear to us in the home. We ask that you leave furniture where they are. Do not bring indoor furniture outside, and outdoor furniture inside.

- No illegal or abusive use of the internet is allowed.

You must also acknowledge:

- Dangerous animals on property - Our home is unfenced and is up against the boulders. You may encounter: rattlesnakes, black widow spiders, coyotes, bobcats, scorpions, etc.

- Surveillance or recording devices on property - For your security and as required by our insurance company, we have security cameras monitoring the exterior entry doors and walkways to the house.
