California Bear

We’re Ready for Desert Daydreaming in Joshua Tree

If there’s a California destination that inherently understands social distancing, it’s Joshua Tree. The popular desert enclave and surrounding area known for its otherworldly national park, draws curious travelers to a variety of rental homes with more than enough space between neighbors. Best of all these, these isolated gems put you one-on-one with nature, the stars and acres of peace and quiet. Field Mag recently featured a handful of the most unique offerings on Airbnb. Here are a few of our favorites:

Folly Off-Grid Stargazing Cabin

Location: Twentynine Palms  |  Vibe: Adult Camp Sleepover

“Tiny living has never looked quite so appealing–these modern, minimal steel structures might not look comfortable, but trust us when we say that they are. Chose to sleep under the stars in the open bedroom or opt to sleep indoors in the second bedroom loft, there are plenty of places to make yourself right at home in these tiny off-grid cabins.”

Rate: $250/night

Casa Mami Pioneertown

Location: Pioneertown  |  Vibe: Real Life Rothko

“Sitting on five acres of property, with simple, yet well thought through details that are hard not to love–hello, out-swinging French doors, Moooi Cloud Sofa by Marcel Wanders, outdoor shower and mid-century Malm wood burning fireplace–Casa Mami is just the place we could use in our lives right now. The property owners specifically warn that there’s no cell phone service at the house, which normally might deter some, but right now, might be just the ticket.”

Rate: $190/night

Off-Grid itHouse

Location: Pioneertown  |  Vibe: Off-Grid Goals

“Raw, remote, and relaxing, the itHouse makes going 100% off-grid look like pure smarthouse goals. Powered by solar panels that handle everything from electricity to hot water, the house is completely self-sufficient. Green living is easy here. And there’s no television on the premises—only satellite Wi-Fi—but with floor to ceiling windows, the views are the entertainment here.”

Rate: $450/night
