This translucent-walled cabin is the perfect little couples getaway in Joshua Tree. Gorgeous mountain views, a patio that looks out on the desert, and a fire pit all make this spot the perfect escape. This Airbnb airs on the more minimal side, but that’s kind of the point of it. There isn’t Wifi or a TV, so you can fully unplug. Take a shower outdoors. Watch the stars at night. Immerse yourself in the outdoors of Joshua Tree. That’s the reason this spot tops our list of the best Airbnbs in Joshua Tree. It’s also not hard on the eyes either.
Honestly, this Airbnb feels like someone took a home in Santorini and put it in the middle of California’s desert. Plaster walls, minimalist interior with warm wood finishes, and a pool and hot tub add to the appeal of this place. This Joshua Tree Airbnb is hands-down one of the best designed. All the comforts and amenities of home are included in this listing, so they’ve got you covered. We think this JT Airbnb is ideal for a family of 4 or a small group of friends. Everyone has enough space to spread out and find their own little nook in the house.
This one’s another perfect couples spot in Joshua Tree. This home is studio-style, but they’ve managed to outdo themselves with the square footage.
