Joshua Tree has been one of my favorite places to escape to, ever since my first trip there a few years back. But now even more than ever, with everything going on in the world, I appreciate the peace and quiet and quick break from reality that the desert offers. Joshua Tree is a small, sleepy town. There’s not a ton going on or many activities to do once the sun goes down. If you’re looking for a night out on the town, you’ve probably picked the wrong place. But for me, that’s all part of the appeal and also why having a superb Airbnb really comes in handy. Some of my favorite memories have been from the unique homes we get to stay in. It seems like every house in Joshua Tree is full of character and so much attention to detail. Whether it’s the vintage rugs and retro appliances, the thoughtfully curated knick-knacks, or the clawfoot tub in the backyard that you can stargaze from, it just makes the trip that much more special. I love the cozy, inviting feeling of picking out one of the records from the bookshelf and dancing around the living room. Or waking up in the morning and making a pour-over with some local coffee that the host left.
