Did you know there are nearly 2,000 Airbnbs in Joshua Tree? The options are as unique as the national park itself and range from wacky to wonderful. You’ll find everything from this spaceship-themed Futuro House to this insane luxury Invisible House in the desert. Because of Joshua Tree’s rise to Insta-stardom, Airbnbs in the area have become expensive and can feel out of reach for the average traveler. It can also be hard to find quality Airbnbs with availability.

We’re here to help you sift through the noise and have compiled a curated list of what we believe to be 16 of the prettiest Joshua Tree Airbnbs. We’ve included options for all price points and group sizes and made sure to mix in some great kid and pet-friendly options.
