You won't get lost until you arrive at our secluded 5 acre desert oasis. Although we are on a dust road your gps will land you at our door. Your apartment is appointed with minimal decor in the French industrial style. Everything you need for a serene get away.

The space

You can come and go as you please with our keyless entry system. The apt is furnished simply with a vintage French artists loft in mind. It has a brand new kingsize bed, it's own bathroom with a shower big enough for three, and a seperate powder room. There is a large antique workbench if you are coming to write or catch up on some work in silence. An antique chair for reading and drifting off into a fantasy world. You have your own laundry room with full size washer and dryer. There is a microwave with a small fridge, kettle, coffee grinder and essentials. I like to provide my guests with, sweetners, and cream, whatever you need for coffee and tea. Coffee is locally roasted and we try to source local where we can. (Soap shampoo conditioner etc)
If you would like to BBQ there is a Webber grill in the shared courtyard.
The house is an intensely inspiring space. We occasionally have artists in residence and each artist leave a piece of thier unique Art here. You are totally on your own in the apartment but I live in the house on property if there are emergencies or you need suggestions. 21+ please. 420 friendly

Guest access

Our living space in near to the apartment, if you would like to cook in our well equipped kitchen or browse our record collection and listen to music you are more than welcome. If you need solitude and want to be alone, you need never see us. You have Acess to the entire 5 acres. There is a shared courtyard with comfortable chairs for star gazing. As I write this we are working on a fire pit about 30 meters from your apt. In the works are a roof top telescope, a cowboy dunk tank and 2 teepee. Our place is called "the now" and you will see signs posted as you arrive. It is a community for inclusiveness and a space for everyone to feel loved and welcome in the solitude of the desert.

Check In
We stayed in the French Industrial for 2 nights. Hated to have to leave. The space was huge with a massive bathroom, plus a kitchenette with washer/dryer which really came in handy after hot dusty walks in the national park. The fresh Joshua Tree coffee was just beautiful. The space is thoughtfully put together, boho glam and eclectic. So great to see the lovely hosts living their truth so beautifully.

This was our first time in Joshua Tree. My fiancé and i loved Colleen’s style and decor of her studio. It was private, had nice ammentities and was the perfect spot for us. It is a great location and taking the dirt/sand road to get to the House was a fun experience too.

This was the perfect space to retreat and create for a few days. The decor and scenery are very inspiring. Colleen and Alex are great hosts!

We had an amazing stay at Colleen’s space! The room itself is stunning (exactly as picture) and even includes a closet of incredible vintage robes/kimonos! She and Alex are kind enough to leave our chocolates, wine, and coffee/tea. The space is just removed enough from downtown to feel a bit secluded, but just a short drive from food and hiking. Would definitely stay again on our next visit!

Colleen and Alex were incredible hosts, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay in Joshua Tree. We found the French room to be super affordable, beautifully (and simply) decorated and very clean. The house is conveniently located close to the National Parks and local restaurants and shops. In addition, Collen and Alex were really generous in suggesting many places to check out in Joshua Tree. I would definitely stay at The Now again, and gladly recommend it to friends.

Interaction with guests

We can interact as little or as much as you wish. Your space is like a private apt and you need not see me. However if you need me I live on the property and can be at your service in minutes. I also provide airport pick ups and shuttle for an additional fee. We have a masseuse that is by apt only and we recommend you book in advance.
We also offer a variety of menu options if you prefer not no go out. (Vegan, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Cold Pressed Juice Smoothies) the yoga deck is for use by all. We are constantly improving the design of our home and completing renovations.
