Larrea Ranch is an upscale 2 bd 1 bath home in Joshua Tree Village, just blocks away from the amenities of downtown Joshua Tree and only 5 miles to the entrance of JTNP.

Our home away from home is designed to be a retreat, a quiet space for reflection and relaxation. Shower under the stars in our rustic outdoor shower, enjoy the mountain view from the porch swing, start the day with a cup of coffee and enjoy the chef's kitchen stocked with everything you need to make a delicious meal.

The space
Located in the heart of Joshua Tree, Larrea Ranch is our personal home that we've renovated with our own hands over the last 2 years, inspired by our many travels. Every detail in this house has intention and has been a labor of love and hard work. We're thrilled to host you in our space.

BEDROOM 1 — King Bed, Sleeps 2
Sleep peacefully on a luxurious king-sized Leesa mattress atop our custom-made platform for a restful night's sleep. Enjoy the sun-drenched south-facing window and the spacious closet. All bedding in both rooms is non-down/vegan, hypoallergenic, and organic cotton to facilitate those with sensitivities.

BEDROOM 2 - Queen Bed, Sleeps 2
This bedroom has a queen-sized Tuft and Needle bed, as well as a large cedar-clad office nook for 2 people. With comfortable office chairs and plenty of space, this room is perfect for remote working and creative workshopping.

BATHROOM — The bathroom has been updated with a reclaimed wood vanity and stunning modern sink, new fixtures, and limewashed walls. The shower is fitted with a water filter to soften the desert water and nourish your hair and skin, and the tub allows for a nice long soak in the evening. Enjoy the Tushy Bidet and Public Goods toiletries for a touch of luxury.

LIVING/KITCHEN/DINING — Our open living concept invites you to spend time together while lounging or cooking a meal for 4 in our fully equipped chef's kitchen, stocked with spices, oils, and all the cooking utensils you could need. Enjoy the full coffee bar, complete with espresso machine, v60, Chemex, french press, and freshly roasted coffee as well as sugar, tea, and more. The dining area is spacious and open for long nights of good conversation, and the living area is comfortable and cozy, with many board games and puzzles to entertain yourself. Or just kick back and stream a good movie on our 55inch TV! We've also installed a filter under the sink to provide clean, filtered drinking water from the cold side of the tap.

Our home is equipped with a high-power evaporative cooler (perfect for hot summer days) and a mini-split system AC/heater in the main living area to keep the house at the optimal temperature year round.

OUTDOOR AREAS — The front yard provides a perfect coffee drinking spot. Sit on the porch swing and watch the birds dance around in the trees and gardens. Enjoy the spacious backyard under the covered pergola, roast up some fresh farmers' market produce on the BBQ, or kick back and enjoy the fire pit (seasonally allowed). The outdoor couch and egg chair provides a delightful space to rest and relax!

OUTDOOR SHOWER — Rinse and rejuvenate under the stars in our rustic outdoor shower, complete with biodegradable soap and hot/cold water settings. The cactus and succulents in the shower are watered whenever you use the shower. This is our favorite feature of our backyard, and we think you'll love it too.

LAUNDRY — We do not have guest access to on-site for laundry, but there is a wonderful laundromat just a few blocks away in downtown. Grab a bite to eat next door at Natural Sisters or The Dez while you wait!

PLANTS & WILDLIFE — Joshua Tree is home to many unique species of animals and plants. If you're lucky in the mornings you can spot the quails in the front yard, the occasional roadrunner on his morning hunt on the street, and the wild variety of inspiring desert flora. This also means there is extra care to be taken with open doors and windows (and leaving food scraps outside) as coyotes love to roam our neighborhood.

NEIGHBORHOOD — We're perfectly situated in the heart of Joshua Tree, considered to be one of the best neighborhoods in town. We're only a few minutes walk from downtown, but far enough away to avoid the noise. If you want the desert experience but also the amenities that come as a luxury here in the desert, this neighborhood is perfect. We're surrounded by full-time residents on all sides, so there are always people looking out for one another which makes this great for a solo/cautious traveler, but with that said, if you're looking for a party house, this is not it.

Where you’ll be

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Located in Joshua Tree Village, south of highway 62, 5 miles from JTNP west entrance, this is the hottest neighborhood in the high desert. Walking distance to the Farmers Markets, all the best food spots in town, and while you have the vastness of the desert around, the safety of the neighborhood provides much ease. We will happily provide all our top recommendations to you anytime you need one!
