Airbnb: Desert Style

By Kate Riley July 21, 2020

My travel dreams are 100% virtual right now, with no plans to go anywhere until Covid isn’t a threat anymore. Still, I can vacation vicariously while staying put at home.

I bookmarked these desert homes I found on Airbnb because they offer not only dreams of solitude, sunsets and serious stargazing, but also tons of inspiration if you’re a fan of desert style. In these casitas near or in Joshua Tree, the owners have paid careful attention to tiles, textures, and finishes to achieve that desert vibe. Enjoy the virtual tours!

  1. Love them all–so cute! I declined a road trip w family to Colorado because of covid. Oh well another time.

  2. Such a fun post — thanks for putting this together. So fun to look and dream at these desert house looks!!!

  3. So pretty, it was just fun to scroll through this post this morning! So sad what is happening in this world right now :(

    • heartbreaking! but it’s an opportunity to adapt and learn and grow.
      we will be able to travel again soon!

  4. Villa Kuro or Roadrunner! You choose!
    I’ll meet you there!

  5. Thanks for posting, Kate. So many bloggers are “eh” about posting on a regular basis, and the fact that you always have something new, interesting, beautiful, fun, etc., posted keeps me coming back every day.

    • how kind thanks so much! it’s hard to be motivated to post every day but I try to 3x a week!

  6. Oh love this. Thanks for including us at Desert Wild. Hope to have you stay one day in the near future. 💗
