We took an extended weekend down south this month, to one of my favorite places in California: Joshua Tree.

Our friends Sara and Rich Combs bought this beautiful hacienda near the heart of Joshua Tree last year, remodeled it, and made it one of those places you’ll be dreaming of for a long time. Named “The Joshua Tree House,” this two bedroom house has been decorated to a tee. Our friends Julia and Thomas, and my husband and I packed our bags, and went down to meet Sara and Rich for a weekend of adventures.

Every corner considered. The Comb’s have seriously not overlooked a single detail in the house — they wanted every guest’s experience to be exactly what Joshua Tree is all about.


In the morning, make your coffee by drip, sit on the porch to take in the sunrise, and start your day slow. 

Meander through the house, find a spot to read a book, maybe the hammock or the swinging chairs, and finish off the morning slow.

Take a long drive into the park (entrance conveniently located around the corner), see the beauty of the high desert, go for a walk, and be under the sun to spend the afternoon slow.

At night, curl up by the wood-burning fireplace, play some vintage records like Fleetwood Mac on the record player, or even some vintage games, and cap off the night slow. 

Time seems to pass by without you noticing, the sunrises blur into sunsets. There’s this natural beauty that is ripe for discovery in Joshua Tree. The Joshua Tree House was the ultimate place to be while there. The creative space was inspiring, and it already has me dreaming of going back soon.
