Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Brand new complete renovation of 1955 house, on over an acre property, centrally located in Yucca Valley, CA. Close access to Joshua Tree National Park, Pioneertown, Integratron and other local desert attractions.
All new appliances, windows, mini split heating and cooling units in each room and gas fireplace. Large walled in patio with dining set, outdoor shower, hot tub, fire pit and fountain.
Use of the 50 ft. diameter open air carpeted art installation from Burning Man, the Alcyone Portal.

The space
The house is tastefully decorated with brand new beds, bedding and towels, antique and vintage furniture with an Asian flair. The kitchen has brand new high end appliances, counter top and sink with the vintage cabinets refinished to match.
Our home is maintained and cleaned with chemical and scent free cleaners for those of you with chemical and environmental sensitivities, or if you are just looking for a healthy and conscious place to stay. We also maintain the hot tub with the least amount of chemicals and use alternative natural ways to keep it sanitized (silver ion & ozone).
Situated on over an acre of land with numerous Joshua Trees around the yard and enough room for privacy from the neighbors. There are beautiful unobstructed views of both sunrise and sunset.
The 50 foot carpeted open air Alcyone Portal that was built for Burning Man 2014-2016 has found a new home here in the desert. There is a full range surround system that is used to play sound healing journeys. At the center is a geometrical wooden structure to sit or lean on that has low frequency feedback that sounds like a big cat purring vibrating it. Surrounding that is a stainless steel mirror structure based on the evolution of the Earth's energy body to facilitate aligning your energy body for an evolution of consciousness. There are ample pillows and cushions for the space. It is ideal for yoga, breathwork, sound baths, meditation and other group activities. There is rope lighting around the top edge and lights in inside for night use.

Where you’ll be

Yucca Valley, California, United States

Although very close to the center of Yucca Valley, the house is in a neighborhood of large properties giving privacy from the neighboring houses. There are no houses across the street or behind the property for unobstructed views of the sunrise and sunset.

I'm an artist and designer from NYC originally. I have lived in Taos NM and now Yucca Valley CA. I build large interactive installations for Burning Man and other festivals around the world. Several of them are set up at the house for you to experience.

I live in an apartment behind the garage which is 100 feet behind the house at the back of the property. I'm available if needed, but otherwise guests have total privacy at the house. I'm not always at the property, as a I travel frequently.
