An Airbnb in Joshua Tree is to people from Los Angeles what a Hamptons vacation rental is to New Yorkers: a serene getaway only a hundred or so miles away from home. That said, while the Hamptons are best enjoyed during the summer months, its California counterpart is a High Desert destination all year-round, especially because it borders the national park of the same name and hosts Coachella each spring. And it’s as much a hot spot for jet-setters looking to reconnect with the surrounding natural landscape as it is a haven for artists and musicians, who have managed to keep the small city of just under 8,000 residents charming.
Luckily, there is no shortage of Joshua Tree–adjacent Airbnb vacation rentals available to book year-round. From a single-story modern ranch surrounded by desert-friendly greenery to a three-bedroom whitewashed hideaway with an azure-hued pool, there are plenty of properties to consider for any type of visit—whether you’ll be spending the day hiking, gallery-hopping, or anything in between.
