The space

The Zen Dome compound is a retreat into nature designed for peace and creativity. Tent guests will have full access to the property including cowboy pool, outdoor kitchen, outdoor bathroom, outdoor shower, and outdoor bathtub. We encourage artists, writers, poets, musicians, to experience the wonders of the desert landscape and the luxury of being still in raw nature with modern comforts. We provide healing sanctuary for leaving the city and its busyness, commingling with nature, spending time with the stars, hearing only silence. There is wild life around, including: Monarch butterflies, which are an endangered species and we encourage and support their survival during the migration by providing a butterfly garden and milkweed throughout the property thereby helping ensure the survival of the species. There are also lizards, spiders, scorpions, and snakes. One must use common sense and caution when walking on the land as we are enjoying nature in concert with nature. The tent is located under a massive salt cedar tree which provides shade and privacy. The property is also landscaped with Peach, Palo Verde, and mesquite trees.

We can provide healthy organic juices, snacks, brunch or dinner at additional cost. Please inquire with advance notice if interested.

Also planning yoga retreats and communal outdoor dining experiences please inquire.

Glad you enjoyed the glamping tent and honored you chose to stay here before the first inaugural Joshua Tree Half-marathon! Getting a good nights sleep before and after the race is super important! Welcome back anytime.

Lovely, serene glamping setup on a lot with gorgeous mountain views. Angel is the perfect host and since we were attending the same festival we even managed to carpool! Perfect outdoorsy spot. Heads up to bring earplugs only because there are dogs in the neighborhood that can be vocal, but besides that it's pristinely silent. Her little dog Romeo is completely adorable! We would definitely come back.

What an amazing place !! We requested to stay at such late notice and angels quick response made it happen for us ! We were greeted by herself and her very handsome little dog Romeo and shown to the tent, The Dome is so cool and luxurious inside the most comfy double bed with a nice thick duvet ,lovely thick fluffy rugs on the floor and just a nice calming space to relax ! If you like the great outdoors you must try her tree shower first thing in the morning it's so beautiful and it really does wake you up! Nice and freshhh I would stay here again, it's 5 -10 minute drive to local shops but it is still out of the way ! Angel is a great host very helpful and makes you feel welcome, hopefully come back and see her in the future, Thank you !!

My boyfriend and I booked the zen tent as we were seeking refuge from our busy lives. We enjoyed the beautiful tent and comfortable sleeping arrangements. The space offered an outdoor fire pit, BBQ, and stargazing bed. We took advantage all the amenities including the outdoor shower. The spot is only a few miles from jtree entrance, and Noah purifoy art garden (worth checking out). Finally, Angel was very receptive and even left us a few beers to enjoy!

I loved everything about staying here. The beautiful tent, the outdoor shower, the privacy behind the big tree on the property. I felt so free. Angel is a lovely host, and her pup is the sweetest thing ever. <3

We Live. We Love. We Travel. We Host.

I dreamed of living in a round house so when this geodesic dome in Joshua Tree became available I knew it was meant to be. The dome was completely gutted and remodeled, furnished with loving care. This property contains my dream home and also my dream artist studio. Time and space for painting, ceramics, sculpture, and photography amidst rejuvenating spiritual sanctuary, nurturing the soul and cultivating artistic practice. There is available outdoor studio space for visiting guests who wish to create during their desert holiday. We host festive celebration dinners here in our garden of earthly delights.
