The space
Here Are A Few Kind Words From Our Past Guests:
“Had the most incredible getaway to Rockbound Oasis! It's perfect for families and even for those without kiddos, girls trip, a few couples - all of the things. Totally worth every penny we spent! The house, the setting unreal and beyond our expectations, everything we wanted it to be and more. We say, hands down the best place to stay in Joshua Tree. The house and amenities - comes with everything you need for adults and kids - from the kitchen pantry, washer/dryer and monster hot tub which is basically a small plunge pool - and was our favorite. I’m already planning my next trip!” - Alyssa

“Rockbound Oasis is exactly what it says... an OASIS. Tucked in a private plot amongst boulders with glorious views, it is truly heaven on earth. Whether you watch the sunset from the amazing hot tub, gaze at the stars from the outdoor fire pit, take a swim in the pool, or explore the grounds, you won't be disappointed. This is my second time to stay and both times, I've hated to leave.” - Jeremy

“This place was one of the best Airbnb’s I have booked. We spent our days exploring Joshua Tree NP, our afternoons in the amazing jacuzzi with the best view of the valley, and our evenings but the raddest fire pit! This house exceeded our expectations beyond.” - Sara

With three bedrooms, this peaceful oasis has plenty of room and relaxation for 5 guests. Boasting comfortable mattresses, pillows, Brooklinen beddings, and lovely decor, the bedrooms are havens for long nights of blissful sleep.

The master bedroom features a King bed, plenty of space to move about, an ensuite bathroom, and direct access through the sliding doors to the porch with a hanging chair, and garden patio too.
The spacious Lunar Room at the opposite end of the house boasts a Queen bed, and sunrise views. You can see the Casita through the sliding glass doors.
A bedroom adjacent to the main entrance houses a single bed and offers gorgeous views of the boulders through large windows.

While there is a casita on the property, it is never rented separately and is NOT included in this listing. If you need a additional space you can rent the main house PLUS casita together at our other listing (just send us a message)
(separate casita features adds a 4th spacious bedroom with a Queen bed and en suite bathroom, living room, kitchenette, and outdoor patio)

The 2 bathrooms in this home each offer a unique point of view. Surrounded by beautiful decor and floor to ceiling glass windows, the main bathroom is the epitome of luxury self-care. Choose between the large soaking tub or the stand-in shower with rain shower features. The Master bedroom’s en suite bathrooms offer standing showers surrounded by gorgeous decor too.

Prepare meals for your family in the fully-stocked chef’s kitchen. You’ll find a stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator with freezer, coffee maker, blenders, toaster oven, and so much more for perfect group meals. We provide cooking basics as well as silverware, dishes, pots, and pans. There’s enough counter space to make meal preparation a breeze.

Once your meal is ready, the dining area is right next to the kitchen. The chic dining table can seat 8 comfortably and we even have an extension piece if you need more space. The barware cabinet is just a few steps away so you can fix yourself a cocktail.

The space is open plan and leads to the living room where you can cozy up on the comfortable chairs or L-shaped sofa in front of the TV and next to the fireplace. Enjoy the natural light flooding through the floor to ceiling mid-century glass doors.

WiFi and climate control are available throughout the home.

The true star of the home is the outdoor space, from a landscape peppered with monster boulders, 65 year old mature cactus garden, the master bedroom deck with a hanging swing, to the large patio with a grill and a dining area. Afternoons are best spent in our large, pristine kidney pool (not heated) surrounded by the stunning boulders, and if you start to overheat, take an outdoor shower or catch some shade & a cool drink in the cabana. Watching the sunset or sunrise in the HUGE 14 foot by 7 foot bubbling hot tub is such a delight!

Where you’ll be

Joshua Tree, California, United States

This area is renowned for its forever vistas of the Mojave Desert and its proximity to the national park. It is just minutes from Joshua Tree Village with its quirky and eclectic High Desert vibe -- including a variety of food, drink, music and shopping options. And a short distance beyond the village is the west entrance to the national park. The Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum is also nearby.

Nestled amongst massive boulders with magnificent views overlooking the Joshua Tree desert and across the valley beyond, Rockbound Oasis Retreat is the true embodiment of its name. Just minutes away from downtown Joshua Tree and the West Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, this property invokes a far-away feeling while offering a host of comforting conveniences.

Built in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) by Helen and Everett Gray who were true pioneers in post-war Joshua Tree, the property is comprised of a main house, casita, and a seasonal pool with cabana – all set in mature gardens of desert landscaping where quail and lizards can be seen darting about. There is always something to delight the eye and senses as you wander around the land and through the boulder formations.

While our oasis and retreat can be a place of solitude and contemplation, we especially wish to provide a visually pleasant and relaxing environment with amenities that encourage and facilitate families to travel together. A love for travel can be fostered early in life and, as a family that travels often, we feel it's important to offer Rockbound Oasis Retreat as a place where other families can build lifelong memories in nature, feeling supported by a visit to our home.
