The Atomic Den is a 900 sq ft suite that sleeps up to 4. This rental features mid-century styling, a fully stocked kitchen and a King sized bed with a thick high-end mattress. Also Included is Wifi, Central A/C, TV with 300+ channels, extra sofa bed.

The space

We are experienced vacation rental hosts and have provided accommodations to over 200 groups in our rentals in Joshua Tree since mid 2013 with consistent high ratings. This is our newest listing that has just been remodeled Summer 2015 and were offering it at a discounted price for a limited time to get things going.

The Atomic den is a throwback to the fun MId-Century Atomic era. It features a stylish retro styling, a bedroom with a huge king bed with a high-end 18 inch mattress, and a fully stocked kitchen. The living room includes a fold down full-sized sofa bed for extra guests, an iconic Tangerine Orange Arne Jacobsen egg chair and a wall-mounted TV (with 300+ channels.) The bedroom closet also includes an extra thick twin extra mattress. This unit has high-end 4 tonne central a/c with temperature control, so our guests can be comfortable both during the hot summer months and cooler winter months. The central location allows you to be “close to it all,” while still nicely tucked away in a quiet area away from the main freeway.

There is dedicated wifi and a large, well-maintained, 60+ jet jacuzzi in the complex. This is a ideal home base for a couple or family.

Part of the historic starlight villas estate ( a 1.5 acre walled and gated compound with 3 active airbnb rentals), the Atomic den lived a vibrant past life, as a gathering place for guests hosted by one of Joshua Tree’s most well-known and generous philanthropists. Her friends, visiting professors, and scientists studying the park’s otherworldly landscape stayed here. Now, we’ve taken care to preserve the same spirit and create a welcoming, warm, place for Joshua Tree vacationers to enjoy.

For all of you who are looking forward to enjoying the awe-inspiring views and rejuvenating power of Joshua Tree, we look forward to being your home away from home on your upcoming adventure here.

The Atomic Den is a very nice place to stay if you are visiting Joshua Tree. It is minutes from the Visitor Center and close to restaurants. There is even a farmer's market nearby on Saturday mornings. There is a full kitchen and living room for you to relax. Cliff answers to questions promptly and checking in and out was a breeze.

We were very impressed with the whole property. Several houses of all sizes to choose from. Very clean and quiet. Had everything we needed and perfect location right near town and Joshua Tree entrance. We will definitely be back next year.

The home is just as described. It was cozy and perfect for what we needed for the weekend. My only critique is that wifi was down for the two days, which wasn't ideal but also not a dealbreaker.

Everything was as described. There were three beds (the king bed, the sofa bed, and a twin mattress). We had a comfortable stay and it was very close to food/restaurants. It's easy to get to Joshua Tree from here as well. The only issue is the address. Follow the directions he gives you in the email. The address provided is not as accurate. The directions were simple and helpful though. Great place to stay!

I grew up in Chappaqua, NY and have always enjoyed the outdoors and the arts. I later crossed coasts and graduated from UC Berkeley. I work in Los Angeles, but Joshua Tree is my favorite weekend escape.

I love pretty much everything about Joshua Tree - the otherworldly scenery, the bright stars, the rustic downtown area, the sparseness, the spirit, the people, and how far far away it feels from the daily grind of the city.

I've been an avid traveler my whole life and my philosophy in running vacation rentals is to bring together all the elements of what my family enjoys most as discerning customers.

It has been a profoundly gratifying experience to provide accommodations for Joshua Tree visitors and I take the responsibility of ensuring the quality and consistency of my rentals very seriously. You can always expect a fast and friendly response when contacting me.

Feel free to message me if you have questions and I look forward to chatting soon.
