The space
To get to this luxury desert oasis you ascend the meandering Old Woman Springs Road, which runs through majestic stone landscapes millennia in the making. Turning into the desert neighborhood you enter an architectural haven of adobe-style estates all a family of homes connected through originally maintained private dirt roads. Kuna Ct. leads you to the private cul de sac and at last, you have arrived at House of Kuna. Nestled among the boulders on a private hill overlooking the vast valley of the yucca valley desert. Just minutes from Joshua Tree National Park and local amenities yet feels like a luxuriously private desert oasis. Welcome to our desert paradise.

This desert home is perfect for large groups. The adobes style home can sleep up to 8 guests in 3 bedrooms, with 4 beds altogether. The master bedroom has one king-size bed, a private patio entrance, and an en-suite bathroom with both a shower and hot tub. The design of this space is a desert boho chic dream.

The second bedroom has two queen-size beds with east-facing windows showcasing much of the desert flora you’ve come to visit - say good morning to the Joshua Trees as the sunrise view brings a new day to your desert adventure. Families and large groups love this space as it works great for kids and friends. This space has that classic desert feel with a touch of funk with vintage pieces and desert treasures, a large closet, and a bathroom right outside.

The third bedroom has a queen-size bed and a dedicated workspace with a private desk for all those hard-working nomads out there looking to escape to the desert. Art from desert locals fills this space and it also has a large mirror and a large closet for the groups that need the perfect getting-ready space. There is a bathroom right outside this room.

The final bathroom can be found next to the kitchen on the way to the laundry room and yoga room. The laundry room has a washer and dryer that are available for guests to use.

A desert trip for us has always meant lots of cooking so the kitchen space is fully equipped with everything you need to cook up any desert meal. The kitchen features a large refrigerator (with cold filtered water and ice taps - a must-have in the high desert) a gas stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, a drip coffee maker, toaster, and about every utensil you could think of. Choose to dine indoors by the custom-designed desert-inspired dining table, or at the 14’ custom-made teak dining table right outside. We love an al fresco dining situation and highly encourage a sunset viewing session outside while you enjoy a meal with your group.

**Inquire about a private chef experience!**

There is a fully open living room connected to both the kitchen and the main hallway leading to all 3 bedrooms. The layout of this space is truly the perfect Airbnb set up as you have this wide open common space leading out to all the outdoor desert adventures, and the hallway separates the sleeping rooms so if your group needs to enjoy themselves on different schedules or you need to put the kids to bed, this layout works great. The 20’ high ceilings and the open floorplan makes the 2000 soft house feel even larger than it is. Enjoy the flatscreen TV in the living room from the eclectic couch, either of the two boho-woven chairs or maybe from a pouf. The living room is stocked with multiple instruments for a group jam session or for a family-friendly activity.

We know, we know - you came to the desert for the outdoors, for the Joshua Trees, and the National Park. For boulders, and for a campfire. For that magical desert night sky, you’ve heard so much about. That is where this desert property SHINES. We encourage you to enjoy the desert nature and all of the desert outdoors as much as possible while you’re here and you have plenty of options at this desert home.

There are 4 main outdoor areas, to the north of the property where you can play classic desert games – we have horseshoe, cornhole, and bocce balls. Family-friendly, kid-friendly, group-friendly. And impossibly beautiful views of the desert as a backdrop.

Steps away from the living room there is an expansive patio that features both a dining area, as well a perfectly nestled lounge that sits you right in the bouldery-desert action. The ancient desert boulders surround this space making this patio an architectural marvel.

As you head to the south side of the property you will find our perfect desert viewing spot - the custom concrete U-shaped bench surrounding our firepit. Sit the whole family down or the entire group and cozy up with our outdoor blankets as pillows as you enjoy the desert sky around a fire. Further on this side, you find our BBQ and private outdoor shower to wash away all the desert dust.

The desert pathway leads you further west through the property where you find the main event. The expansive custom-designed deck featuring a large Cowboy Pool Tub, and an equally large hot tub. Just next to the pool deck you can enjoy an XL Hammock. Don't stop there. While the installments may end, our guests rave about the ability to have 2-acres of private desert and boulders to hike and explore and watch the amazing views.

The garage has been reimagined to fit the needs of those looking for a true desert retreat. This space is now a fully functioning yoga studio with extended mirrors along the back wall. We love our retreat groups and make sure this space is a perfect desert haven for groups of all sizes looking to relax and move.

**Inquire about any private yoga or meditation teacher recommendations!**

For parking, please park in the driveway right outside the garage and not the cul-de-sac. Our driveway can accommodate up to 6 cars so it's no issue for large groups.

The desert gets quite chilly in the winter and hot in the summer. It is a desert after all! But House of Kuna has central heating and cooling to make sure your desert adventure is totally comfortable. The digital thermostat makes controlling it a desert breeze!

New: Temperature-controlled Yoga room!

House of Kuna has fast WiFi, and a dedicated workspace in the guest bedroom with a private desk. The large kitchen table and outdoor table are perfect workspaces for groups or desert work aways as well. Not all accommodations in the desert have cell service but that is not a problem at this desert home. Take your afternoon meeting on a stroll through the desert yard and leave work feeling desert cleansed.

We welcome your furry guests (pets love the desert too) and are delighted to have a space that can host them. There will be a pet basket waiting for you with helpful pet essentials. We do ask pet owners to abide by our pet rules and be cautious to avoid any harm to the pet or our home. A list of guidelines can be found in our house rules.

House of Kuna is perfect for families with children and we know the kids will have a great time here in the desert and can entertain themselves with all of the kid-friendly amenities giving families the relaxing desert getaway they want.

Kid-Friendly Amenities:
- Board games
- Children's books about the desert
- Outdoor desert games: Horseshoe, corn hole, and volleyball
- Outdoor desert adventures: hiking and playing in the backyard is what we hear the kids have loved the most here.
