This Funky Desert Hideaway Near Joshua Tree Just Listed for $285K

Currently owned by designer Lindsay Hollinger, this quirky home is already a popular Airbnb.

If you’ve ever fantasized about your own desert cabin, consider this thoughtfully renovated dwelling. Set on a five-acre lot, the three-bedroom, two-bath home provides plenty of solitude—while still being just a short drive away from the otherworldly destination of Joshua Tree. 

Sporting a colorful, hand-painted side mural, 68816 Gemini Road is located near Joshua Tree in Twentynine Palms, California. The property was recently revamped from floor to ceiling by artist and current owner Lindsay Hollinger. 

Not only does the 1,116-square-foot property offer a prime location for hot-tubbing and stargazing, but it also comes fully furnished.

Keeping in line with its dramatic facade, the home boasts a crisp, vibrant palette throughout. A moody-red velvet sectional provides ample seating in the main living room, while a shaggy, cream-colored rug adds an additional level of texture.

So whether you want to simply drop your bags and immerse yourself in the highdesert lifestyle, or continue the tradition of the current owner and use the stylish space as an established Airbnb vacation rental—the choice is yours. Scroll ahead to inside more of the home, currently on the market at $285,000.

Measuring 1,116 square feet, the residence is flooded with natural light. The original stone wall becomes an alluring focal point upon entry, complemented by the home's light hardwoods.

Featuring an eye-catching backsplash, the bright, airy kitchen also includes custom cabinetry.
