Area 55 Airbnb Futuro House – Places to stay near Joshua Tree National Park

This experience is so quirky and unique that it has to be the first in my list of the best Airbnbs in Joshua Tree!

This glamping experience is all about getting off the grid, enjoying fun board games, hot outdoor showers, and eating by the fire pit, whilst enjoying your own spaceship for the night!

Note however that Futuro House is so popular that it is usually booked out 12 months in advance!

This means if you see a cancellation pop up, jump at it, or plan ahead and book this amazing Joshua Tree glamping experience for a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary or Christmas in the future, so you have something out of this world to look forward to (do excuse the pun!).

Guest review: “Roland’s place is probably one of the most unique places you will experience at a reasonable and affordable price. When you are out there you start to feel like you are literally out in space.

In the beginning we had some trouble starting the lights inside and outside and we also had trouble with the heater. Everything works great and you just need to communicate with the host. It’s a beautiful space and worth the experience.” – Monia, November 2020

The location was awesome. It was private but close enough to what we needed. We enjoyed hearing coyotes in the distance at night and a sound bath echoing through the desert in the morning.

The stars at night were breathtaking as well as watching the sunrise and sunset. Everything in the home was well thought out even down to the visitors manual. We really enjoyed our stay . We would love to come back and make it an annual visit to Joshua tree/yucca valley. Thank you for such a wonderful visit and well designed home!” – Maribel, November 2020

The clubhouse was comfortable and inviting, and the showers and bathrooms were clean and tidy. It was a unique and peaceful experience. One that was very much needed after stressful year of uncertainty. Overall, we will definitely book again, and bring friends along as well.” – Dean, November 2020

Joshua Tree House Beautiful Views

This 2 person cabin has stunning views of the Joshua Tree landscape as well as hikes that can be taken right from the front door.

Located near the Quail Wash entrance, this cabin has been wonderfully restored and has kept many of the original features whilst updating it for all the modern necessities.

Guest review: “Desert magic: you walk right outside and you’re on a trail that takes you right into the national park (recently purchased conservation land will soon bring the park’s boundary literally to the front door). But you don’t even need to go outside to revel in the splendor. Massive windows in all directions surround you in Joshua Tree’s unique landscape from anywhere in the house.

The interior vibe is open and simple – with really cool touches like a guitar, BBQ, fire pit, fireplace, Jacuzzi bath and an awesome vinyl stereo + collection. While the kitchen might be a bit of a throwback, it just adds to the vibe of a magical desert setting. Jamie is also quick to respond and everything at the place is as stated. Highly recommended!” –Igor, November 2020

The hosts went the extra mile in beautifully decorating the space and sharing tips on the area. Moreover, the yard was such a highlight. We spent most of our stay in the hot tub or yoga platform just getting lost looking at the beautiful landscape. We definitely hope to come back soon.” – Adam, November 2020

This wonderfully colorful cabin is designed for couples or friends who want to unwind after a day of exploring the Joshua Tree National Park.

Then explore the 2.5 acres that the property sits on, or head over to the National Park and explore the desert landscape.

In the evenings, enjoy the board games provided with a glass of wine (a complimentary bottle of wine is included).

Guest review: “The Roadhouse Ranch proved to be the perfect romantic getaway spot for me and my better half’s 5-year anniversary. Close to Joshua Tree and other unique desert towns, but far enough away that the loudest noises of the morning are the flocks of birds flying overhead. The home itself feels like just that – home. The hosts put thought into every detail of the Roadhouse Ranch. We can’t wait to be back, and (maybe) show some friends our new favorite spot.” – Keith, November 2020

My husband and I love cooking our own meals on trips, so it’s great having a functional kitchen. Just like our last stay, we barely left the house.

The surrounding scenery is beautiful and our dog has such a good time getting to run around outside. It’s so nice to have the space around the house be completely fenced in. It was an easy drive to get into town, communication was quick and helpful, and check in and check out were both super easy. It’s so lovely to relax and take in the sunrises and sunsets here. Already looking forward to coming back!” – Kat, November 2020
