From the Joshua Tree Acres Air BNB Listing
“Welcome to Joshua Tree Acres! This space was created with the intention of gathering conscious like-minded people together to connect with natural surroundings, explore creativity and experience community.
@joshuatreeacres is surrounded by Joshua Trees on 5 private acres. Conveniently located 10 minutes from the village, our property is a serene escape into desert life.
**Please note that although we have modern amenities, this is more of a high end camping experience than staying in a boutique resort. We strive to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible but also want you to be aware that this is not a hotel. There are no restrooms or running water in the Airstreams and this is a communal property where you will be interacting with other guests. This is all part of the outdoor desert experience and was created with intention as a place to step away from modern life**
Inside our Airstreams we have taken the time to restore the most unique features while adding modern comfortable touches including a Casper memory foam mattress. This sleeping space features hand made decor and thrift found treasures- blending what we love from the past with the present.
Our communal space- The Clubhouse is where guests gather to cook, eat, get clean and meet other desert wanders. It offers a small kitchen with a fridge/freezer and a stove top. We love cooking in this kitchen and have done our best to provide everything needed to create a beautiful meal.
Our coffee corner devices include a Chemex drip coffee maker w/filters, French Press & Moka Pot.
During cold winter nights, the Airstreams are heated with a space heater. On warm days/nights, it’s equipped with an AC unit. We’ve consciously chosen to be a television free environment. Please note we have a very weak Wi-Fi signal in our area. We invite you to use this time to disconnect from technology and enjoy the peace and tranquility it can bring. Depending on your provider, cell phone reception should be available.
We love the desert but with it can come unpredictable weather, hot sun and desert dwellers. Remember to stay hydrated and take an afternoon siesta. Don’t alarmed if you feel the strong wind blowing or hear the coyote’s howling, it’s all part of the beauty of sleeping in the desert wild.
-The property is very secluded can get quite dark at night. We advise all guests to bring a flashlight or headlamp to get around comfortably
-Most of the lights littered around the property are solar powered and will turn on as soon as it gets dark and burn through the night
-Your Airstream has outdoor porch lights that can be turned on with a dimmer to the left of the door
-Bring a sleeping mask unless you like to rise with the sun
-Bring a refillable water bottle so you can stay hydrated. Filtered water is available in The Clubhouse
Q: How do we get there?
A: The Closest Airport is Palm Springs International Airport. It is about a 50 minute drive from Palm Springs to Joshua Tree Acres. The Ontario Airport is roughtly 1 hour and 45 minutes away, though air fairs tend to be a bit less expensive there, so if you are renting a car and don’t mind a little drive this is also an option. I would reccomend connecting with others coming to the event as we get a bit closer to perhaps carpool from the airport/ share rental cars.
There is a ton to do/ see/ explore in Palm Springs, Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area. You might consider adding a few days at the begning or end of your trip to fully take advantage of your time in southern California.
Q: What should I pack?
- Layers, it will be cold in the evenings and hot during the day. a sweatshirt, jacket, socks, cozy campfire clothes are all reccomended.
- flip-flops/ sandals. All the airstreams and the club house are shoe free, so you want to be able to slip your shoes on and off.
- lounge wear- you’ll be in and out of your airstream to use the restroom/ common areas.
- Sleeping mask. The sun rises early (and its beautiful, but also bright)
- re-usable water bottle
- swimming suit
- yoga/ hiking attire
- yoga mat! There are lots of good travel ones out there.
- hat and sunglasses
- toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc.)
Q: I noticed there is free time on Saturday, what is there to do in the area?
A: SO MUCH! Of course you are welcome to stay on site and lounge in the hammocks, listen to reccords, read a book/ catch up on your introvert time. The town of Joshua tree has some of the best vintage shops around, there is a great Farmers Market on Saturday, and Joshua Tree National Park is a must see. There is also a ton of great art in the area including the Joshua Tree Outdoor Museum and the Integretron Sound bath is close by.
Q: Is this Yoga Retreat Vegan/Vegetarian?
A: Not nessecarily. The menu is not set in stone, and I am happy to accomodate dietary restrictions if I know in advance, but I am not planning for it to be vegan/ vegetarian. I love to cook, and I’m happy that this retreat gets to combine my passion for yoga and creating beautiful and delicious food. Please let me know of any food allergies or restrictions by mid February.
