Joshua Tree is a haven for stargazing lovers and those who love the desert wilderness. Just a few hours’ drive from lively – but extremely congested – Los Angeles sits a remote otherworldly desert oasis.

Luckily, Joshua Tree quite possibly has the greatest number of unique and beautiful Airbnbs per square foot. We reviewed dozens of homes, and it was incredibly hard to pare the list down. In the end, we were able to narrow it down to the best 12 Airbnbs in Joshua Tree for a diverse range of budgets and home types.

Feel free to check out our expanded list of Joshua Tree Airbnb Experiences — our top 30. While they didn’t make the Top 12 cut, they’re nonetheless exceptionally beautiful.
