NOTE - The Stock Tank Pool is not a hot tub, it is not heated, and in the winter the water is freezing cold, so as such we drain, and store it away for the winter, From Dec. 1st to April 1st.
As a wise-man/woman once said, "It's all about location, location, location." There are a lot of great listings on Airbnb for "Joshua Tree". But if you know the area and you really look at where many of these listings actually are you will be surprised. First of all many of them are not in Joshua Tree at all, which isn't necessarily bad, but many of them are sitting out on flat featureless scrub desert a fair distance from anything of interest. The Time Machine house however is truly in one of the most spectacular and unique locations in all of Joshua Tree. On the south-side of the Hwy (some would say the better side), up on a hill with stunning surroundings and views, and in the very desirable area known as Panorama Heights (The Ken Kellogg designed Doolittle Desert House is in the neighborhood).
Note- please read my full description of the listing prior to booking.
The Time Machine house is on a 10 acre property with a 1800 square foot, one level "Ranch Style" house. It is both isolated (chances are you will not see anyone outside the property while there), and yet convenient. The HWY is one minute drive down the hill and Joshua Tree town is another 10 minutes west.
I call it the Time Machine house, because it really is something of a Time Machine, it will transport you to another time or feeling, or at least make this time feel a little slower and a little less hectic. The largely original interior and vibe of the place, and its setting, gives you the feeling you have stepped into a very cool, secret retreat in the 1960's or 70's. Back when I bought this house from the original owner who's dad had built it in 1952, I knew right away that I didn't want to change too much about the house, it felt like finding an original stock, classic car, that no one had ever messed with and put bad wheels on etc. Some of you will know what I mean. Anyway suffice it to say, the house is accentuated with many period styling elements such as the free-standing Swedish Fireplace, and lots of other groovy stuff. With its open floor plan, and expansive views, the house blends elements of Americana, Mid-Century Modern, and Western to create a uniquely Californian retreat. The house has two large patios. One at the front off the living room, that offers forever views that look like a western painting, great sunsets, and dark, stary nights, provide an amazing star-gazing experience. Its also a perfect space for outdoor dinning, there's a propane BBQ for guest use (fyi-should the propane be tank be empty you may have to get it filled in town, but I will reimburse you for that), and another free-standing Swedish fire-place (you'll also need to pick up some firewood). In addition to a small AC unit in the bedroom the house has a large central "Swamp Cooler" or Desert Cooler if you prefer. Swamp Coolers are very common out here and they do cool things down pretty darn well, while being far more "green" than a conventional Air Conditioner. But they do not get quite as cold as AC does. But this unit does work well and blows out nice cool air forcefully that along with the AC unit in the bedroom is sufficient for most people. But if you are planning on basking in ice-cold AC, then you should be headed to a hotel room in Palm Springs instead.

Another important thing to note -
Given that the Time Machine house is so much within nature, that nature is always trying to get inside(they know it's cozy in there). And although we make every effort to make sure that little friends don't get in the house, its a constant battle. So if you are staying there do NOT leave food out at all. Keep your food in the fridge when you go out or go to bed. Do not leave the doors of the house open at night, keep screen doors closed always, or you will likely have visitors, and not just bugs... And I really have to make a point here as I have had to deal with several extremely unrealistic guests regarding the nature here. So know this, if you see a mouse, a rat, a bat, a bug, a snake, a lizard, a tarantula, a scorpion, or any other numerous types of animals here, either outside the house or even inside of it (as people leave doors open constantly..) if you see any animals that you don't like or are scared of and you then come to me demanding some kind of refund, you will NOT be refunded. By booking this listing you are accepting that this area is the home of all these creatures and it is you who is the guest in their home. So if you see a mouse or anything other creature, it is not a symptom of some sort of unsanitary conditions (like in the city), it is simply that one of the many creatures has gotten inside one way or another, it is certainly not likely that this will happen, but it is certainly possible, and while we make every effort to seal up entry points and stop creatures from getting in, it is not possible to stop them 100%, especially with guests leaving all the doors open... And we are not in the business of trying to exterminate the local wildlife, indeed we want to have as little impact as possible. So if you are going to have an issue with any of the above, then this is not the listing for you! I'll say it again.. The Desert is the Home of these Animals and you are the Guest in Their home.

The back Patio has great views of the boulders and rock mountains that lead up into the National Park. There's a table set up for drinks and dinning, yet another Swedish fireplace, and a newly added..... Stock Tank "Pool"!! This thing is a life saver, that is great for getting wet, soaking, and cooling off in the hotter months. Oh and my favorite feature, a great hot water out door shower is located on the back patio too.


There is a large Master bedroom that has a comfy King bed, and en suite bathroom with shower. The bedroom opens on to 2 large patios, on both the front and back of the house.

There is also a second bathroom and shower in the house for additional guests. However the best shower in my opinion is the Outdoor shower on the back patio facing the vast boulder formations of the national park. House is private enough to be naked in a hot shower at night under the stars or as a way to cool off on a hot afternoon between tanning. Or to warm up after a dip in the Stock Tank Pool.

The living room at the front of the house is very large and has sweeping endless views of the surrounding desert. In winter its large Swedish Fireplace offers a great spot to curl up in front of. There is a fold out sofa bed along with an extremely long 9 foot couch that can accommodate additional guests.

The dinning room has another Stone-chimnied fireplace adjacent to the dinning table. The kitchen is all original 1950's pine cabinets and counters with a great little bar to have drinks at.

In addition there is a trailer adjacent to the back patio, that has another King Sized Bed and Sleeping area. Along with its own bathroom. The Wide World trailer has its own AC unit which once you close all the windows and let it run for 15-20min or so actually can cool this thing down to the point where its cooler staying in here than in the house. But use sparingly. Please let me know if you think your group would like to make use of the "Wide World" trailer in advance so that I can have it prepared and ready for you, as we only prep it for guests who specifically ask us for it.

Toegang voor gasten
Guests will have access to the front 2 and half acres of the property to explore and relax as they so choose. However, the Land Yacht and Rock Yacht Airstreams up in the back 2.5 acres of the property are separate listing and as such is off limits to ensure the privacy of both listings.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
I really appreciate every one of my guests (assuming they don't wreck the place, lol) and as such if you end up coming back in the future I will offer a 10% return customer discount. Cheers!

In addition to the main house, there are 2 Classic Airstream trailers "Land Yacht" and the "Rock Yacht" trailer at the back of the property that have been converted into a fully functional Glamping units, they book separately on its own Airbnb page.

I'm California native who grew up at the beach but fell in love with the desert. I am a 15 plus year veteran of working as a photographer in the fashion industry. My work has taken me all over the world. To such far flung places as Kenya, Iceland, and even the Galapagos Islands. But I can honestly say that Joshua Tree and this property is my favorite place of all. Being able to escape to Joshua Tree has been a source of great inspiration, spiritual renewal, and calm. I fell in love with Joshua Tree about 10 years ago, after discovering its deeper charms while shooting here. Its been an adventure discovering the ever deeper layers of the area's history, its culture, the people, and the wonderful nature and beauty of this truly unique place in the world. I invite you to come experience this place for yourself.
