From Arizona to California, hit the road and look forward to a welcoming stay where the iconic Southwestern desert meets elevated design at these five Airbnbs.
1. Architect’s Off-Grid Stargazing Cabin | Twentynine Palms, California
Sleep in a comfy bed under the stars in an open-air room in a minimalist corten steel structure. Architect Malek Alqadi designed this innovative oasis as a unique off-grid getaway offering close proximity to nature as well as simple, stylish living.
2. Cielito Lindo Retreat | Joshua Tree, California
Cielito Lindo Retreat sits on a special piece of land within walking distance of downtown Joshua Tree (i.e. the Natural Sisters Cafe, Joshua Tree Roasting Company, the National Park Visitor Center, and the Joshua Tree Saloon), while bordering the Coyote Hole Conservation Area, a protected and less-visited slice of wild land home to coyotes, petroglyphs, and incredible boulder canyons waiting to be explored by you. Just ten minutes by car down the road, and you’re at the gateway to the National Park.
3. Death Valley House | Beatty, Nevada
Located 20 miles off the Death Valley National Park boundaries, with 80 acres of land and unobstructed views to the desert and the mountains, this vacation home designed by Peter Strzebniok provides stunning views, while also making the desert part of the interiors.
4. Renew Cabin with Private Stargazing Hot Tub and Yoga Deck | Sedona, Arizona
Stay at TinyCamp, a luxury tiny house village. Stargaze under the night sky from the deck’s comfy chairs. By day, enjoy the plunging canyon views, while inside a spa-like bathroom beckons. In short, discover an oasis of renewal and reconnection.
5. Striking Mid-Century Home | Palm Springs, California
Sit fireside on a chic sofa under a striking wood-beamed ceiling and be steeped in the marvelous, mid-century aura of this art-filled home. After a swim in the pool, fire up the BBQ and serve dinner alfresco on the picturesque covered patio.
