Testimonials from guests who've stayed at Homestead Modern No. 1
This property is... Otherworldly. In the best way imaginable. My girlfriend and I stayed here for only two short nights, and we wish we could have stayed 10 more. I don’t remember the last time I was able to be somewhere this peaceful, and beautiful. The wind whips and whispers through the valley that Pioneertown sits in and you just feel such peace. The house itself is designed from the bottom up to facilitate that experience. Dave runs a tight ship and it showed in the amount of perfect detail at every turn. The art work in the house is perfect. The design of the building— perfect. The beds— more comfortable than my own. This property wasn’t just designed— it’s well curated. It’s an art installation. It is a conduit for whatever experience you need to have in the Mojave. I know this sounds like a lot of spiritual new-age mumbo jumbo, but honest to God— Homestead Modern No. 1 was a spiritual experience. You’d be an absolute fool not to embrace it.
We stayed at Homestead Modern No.1 only for two short nights and at the end would have wished we could stayed longer. The place is so well planned and thought through, we loved every detail. We got very lucky and stayed the night of the meteorite shower and were able to watch many many shootings stars sitting in the hot tub. The place is very clean, modern and exactly how shown in the picture. We loved the outside fireplace and that we could barbecue outside. Already planning to come back! Thanks for a fantastic time!
Went out to Joshua tree for a wedding weekend and couldn’t have selected a better place. The location is right in Pioneer Town and super close to Pappy & Harriet’s. We rented all three structures and was impressed with the modern style and pure fun of lounging in the desert. All the structures were brand new and everything worked perfectly. Highlight was sitting in the hot tub under a full moon and enjoying the scenery. I would definitely recommend renting this place.
We loved our stay at Homestead Modern No. 1. The property is exactly as pictured with beautiful sunrise/sunset views. Great location, walking distance to Pappy & Harriet’s and an easy drive to Joshua Tree Nat’l Park. Dave was a great host. He was always easy to reach and shortly after booking, he provided us with a very helpful booklet of house amenities/details and local recommendations for shops/restaurants. We’ll definitely be back!
From the time we got there to the time we left, we felt pampered by our surroundings. Everything we needed- towels, comfortable bedding, delightful scenery- was there. Not to mention the beautiful Jacuzzi hot tub and cowboy dipping pool. Dave was VERY attentive and we were able to communicate regularly. I was SO IMPRESSED by the architecture and setting of Homestead Modern No. 1! Thank you Dave- we will be back!!!!!!
We had a fantastic weekend! The house is beautifully designed and has a wonderful location.
This place is OUTSTANDING. I have traveled the world and this is in my top 5 places I’ve ever been. Every single thing down to the T is outlined and all here. The cowboy tub is amazing and the hot tub is perfect! This is now my official favorite getaway from LA. Thanks Dave!!
This stay was everything I imagined it to be and more. The property was exactly as described if not better. The view from the backyard in photos honestly does not do it justice. It’s absolutely amazing and breathtaking in person. This was my first Airbnb and what an unforgettable experience. The place is beautifully designed, modern look but everything is extremely functional. (My fav! I love when good design also incorporates great function.) There is every amenity that you could want or need at Dave’s modern homestead. The jacuzzi, the outdoor showers, the fire pit, BBQ, dishwasher!! Dave has the renting of this place fine tuned. There’s a super informative manual on how to operate everything. Questions were answered quickly by Brad and great back up plans in place. (I.e. We accidentally locked ourselves out of the house.) The home was super clean and organized. The entire rental process was very easy and simple. Short drive to Joshua national park which was soooo beautiful, stark, eerie and strange. I cannot wait to visit here again. Next time I would like to stay longer.
Previously I have stayed at Dave’s other property Rock Reach House and I was always interested to stay at this one as well. Like there, this one is perfect in every way but with it’s own character and charm. The property has 3 different places to stay so that it can expand as your party gets larger...we used the casita and mobile home in addition to the main house. Dave goes out of his way to be very supportive with information, and has thought of everything which is conveniently included in the binder in the main house. The home is well stocked with anything you could ever need, and the same goes for the casita. The casita was perfect as well with a super comfy bed, tv, and separate bathroom and shower. The landscaping and grounds are beautiful and add so much to the experience. The highlight has to be the incredible front deck area with the firepit and million dollar view into the desert mountains. Crisp night air with the lights going is just something you have to experience at some point. We also had the pleasure of having Coyote Telescope come and set up here on one of the nights - that was also an amazing experience. You see our neighboring planets, far binary systems and nebulas...it was something that made our trip even that much more special. Also take note that the weather was very hot outside, around 100+ each day but all three areas were chilly and comfortable inside from the AC. Dave has built something very special here that is walking distance to Pappy and Harriet’s as well as the charm of Pioneertown. We can’t wait to come back!
This home is ABSOLUTELY stunning!! I came with a team of wedding vendors as we were doing wedding venue scouting in the Joshua Tree/ Pioneertown area. We think it is a great spot for both intimate weddings, and/or a wonderful place to stay if you are in town for weddings(or to just enjoy a show at Pappy & Harriet’s, soak in the hot tub and look at the stars, etc. Seriously can’t recommend this place enough. Too often place online aren’t nearly as great in person, but once in awhile you find somewhere that is even better in real life and this. is. it!
Dave was an absolutely wonderful and organized host! His home is gorgeous, organized, and all of its features were easy to use and clearly explained. Pioneer town and its views are spectacular and getting to see the million stars in the hot tub at night was a rare and special opportunity. There was enough space between homes to feel like you were alone in the beautiful atmosphere but close enough to walk into town and get to adventure around Pioneer Town. The place met and then exceeded our expectations and was also dog friendly! Thank you, Dave and we hope to come back again soon!
Beautiful, secluded property in an amazing location. Thorough information was provided before our stay, which was very helpful while we were visiting. We would highly recommend staying here!
We had a fabulous time at Homestead Modern No. 1! We rented the house, casita and trailer and they were all wonderful. There were so many comfortable places to enjoy the outdoors. The house was better equipped than any rental we’ve ever stayed in. The owner thought of everything (blankets for enjoying the fire pit, for example) and that made our stay very comfortable. Such a beautiful property! We’d love to stay again.
Homestead Modern No. 1 was one of the best Airbnbs I’ve stayed in. It was beautifully appointed, sparklingly clean and organized, and Dave (the host) had every detail written out in a meticulously documented manual. Everything went very smoothly, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the hot tub and soaking tub were lovely. The whole place was very peaceful, relaxing, and perfectly maintained. I would highly recommend this if you’re scheduled to be in/near Pioneertown (we were there for a wedding).
Homestead Modern No. 1 is a treasure and we cannot thank our host, Dave McAdam, enough for an exceptional stay. New, meticulously clean, outfitted to perfection, Homestead Modern is an architectural gem in and of itself, beyond the brilliantly designed and outfitted kitchen, bathrooms, luxurious beds and linens, super state-of-the- art AV/TV system, delicious hot tub, and charm of its location in Pioneertown. The desert views are breathtaking, yet the house, despite its utter privacy and tranquility, is within walking distance of Pappy and Harriets! We could not have experienced the majesty of the High Desert in greater comfort, or with greater joy. Dave’s aesthetic is spare, practical, and beautiful. He has created a clever, stunning template in Homestead Modern No. 1 that I hope becomes the standard for a new generation of desert dwellers, including my children who are captivated by Dave’s economy of design, loving use of local textures and materials (including an iconic vintage trailer that is most glamorously outfitted!), and Scandinavian practicality. Dave has created a remarkable living experience in Homestead Modern where the landscape permeates every aspect of this lovely house, where outdoors and indoors spill into each other, where the desert is acknowledged and celebrated in one way or another at every turn. We feel very lucky to have discovered and experienced it. We cannot thank Dave enough or wait to return!!
We had a fantastic weekend here! Beautiful house with everything you need - kitchen is particularly well stocked. Easy check-in, and great location for visiting Joshua Tree.
We had such a great experience at this house. Dave was very responsive when booking and we had the best detailed instructions of any Airbnb. There are thoughtful elements in the planning and overall feel of the property. It feels very private even though there are homes nearby. Every amenity you could hope for is here. We would return in a heartbeat.
This property is truly AMAZING! We stayed here for a long weekend in July with our three twenty-something kids and everything about the house was perfect. The interiors are done in a beautiful mid-century modern style (I wish our house looked this good!) but we really LOVED the outdoor space - BBQ on the patio, horseshoes, hot tub and cold plunge and sunning and reading on the comfy lounge chairs. The views from everywhere are amazing, the high desert (even in the peak of 105 degree summer heat) is always magical. Stargazing at night around the fire pit was the best. The house itself sits off a dirt road but is far enough from neighboring houses so that it feels totally private. Our daughter stayed in the little casita guest house and our sons stayed in the tricked out trailer (you have the option to rent either or both with the main house) - they loved having their own luxuriously appointed private spaces. We cooked a few times and the kitchen was awesome - fully stocked, even a garlic press and coffee grinder! Pioneertown was a super fun place to be - it’s far enough away from the Yucca Valley commercial sprawl, and the house is walking distance to the best BBQ and beer joint in the valley (Pappy and Harriets). The property is about 20 minutes from the western (Joshua Tree) entrance to the park, so we did a lot of early morning and late afternoon hiking. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND and we are for sure planning on returning - its our new favorite weekend getaway!
I just returned from an incredible weekend at Homestead Modern No. 1. Really, the place was amazing. My girlfriend and I were in the main house, parents who were visiting from out of town stayed in the casita; a perfect setup. The contemporary design of the house was incredible and made for an amazing contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. The house was stocked with everything we needed and we had an easy time planning what to bring thanks to the very detailed handbook provided by Dave. I would recommend Homestead Modern No. 1 without hesitation and hope to return soon.
Loved every minute of our stay. Homestead Modern No. 1 is equipped with everything you’ll need or want.
This is the BEST Airbnb I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The property is as beautiful as it is pictured. The area is quiet and secluded... The perfect desert getaway! Dave is an excellent host! He responds quickly to messages and provides everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. I will definitely return and highly recommend this place to others!
This is my second stay at Homestead Modern No. 1 and it was equally as great. The property and house are so well done it’s impossible not to fall in love with the place. Dave is a fantastic host and easy to communicate with. Everything is well-appointed and comfortable. Thanks for another amazing experience!
Everything about our stay, from reserving the property with David, to checking out at the end, exceeded my expectations. The property is absolutely stunning and there are thoughtful touches throughout. From the decor to the ponchos to wear at the fire pit, your every need has been considered. Truly a beautiful place to relax and disconnect from it all while still enjoying everything that Pioneertown and Joshua Tree have to offer. I’m looking forward to my next stay and you should too!
What you see in these pics is what you get. Clean, modern, beautiful, pristine are a few words that come to mind. Location is right where you want to be for both the national park and all local fare.
The experience with Dave and his property in Pioneertown was the best I have ever had. This Christmas was truly amazing because of the property. Dave checked up on us and also there was nothing more than we could have asked for. He had so many great amenities and the added touches- blankets for fire pit, variety of games, apple tv and the bedding was perfect. Also, extremely clean and so well designed. I will rent this property again and again.
I will stay here again - this was a perfect girls relaxing weekend! The kitchen allowed us to really just prepare delicious food and enjoy the property!!!
We loved staying at Modern Homestead No. 1! Everything was perfect and Dave was a fabulous, helpful host. Every detail was perfect!!! I would highly recommend staying here and we absolutely plan on coming back.
Homestead Modern No. 1 is an amazing place to stay for some rest and relaxation. The view is great and the houses are so well thought out and comfortable. It was really hard to leave!
Loved our time at Homestead Modern No. 1. Two friends and I were on a writing trip and we never left once we checked in. Thanks very much for a great atmosphere!
Exceed every expectation we had by milestone! It’s simply incredible. Fantastic views, excellent amenities and you lack for nothing. All the details of the house are spelled out and easy to use. Great jumping off point for Joshua Tree. Sitting out on the back patio watching the stars will be something I won’t soon forget. We didn’t have the pleasure of meeting David, but his passion and pride were evident throughout. Looking for an excuse to get back soon. Thanks David for starting our trip off with such a bang!
What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Homestead Modern No. 1? Everything was as described. and hence everything was as expected. Beautiful relaxing spot off the beaten track but still close to civilization. Dave does a masterful job running his property. Kudos to him for an amazing stay in an amazing place.
Staying at Homestead Modern No. 1 was the highlight of my 10 day vacation to Southern California. The whole place is extremely well designed and Dave has thought about just about every detail to make any stay perfect. Whenever I had a question Dave responded immediately and was very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here!
We had such a wonderful stay at Homestead Modern No. 1 ! The property is stunning and perfectly located to explore Pioneertown. The house is impeccably clean and well equipped with everything we needed to cook and relax. We especially loved the outdoor space. We will definitely be back!
Homestead Modern No. 1 was picturesque. It was the ideal place to spend my birthday in Joshua Tree. The house and casita were exactly as described, and everything was perfectly clean. Just a 5 minute, beautiful desert walk to Pappy & Harriet’s, I would recommend Homestead Modern No. 1 to anyone who wants to spend an idyllic time in Joshua Tree. A bonus was the hot tub, which had the most breathtaking view of the sunset over the snow capped mountains every night. A++, will definitely be renting again.
We had a great stay. This place is a hidden gem. The owner really paid attention the every detail about the property. We were able to see the Milky Way at night, it was just amazing... And can we please talk about the sunrise? STUNNING! We will definitely return!
The house and casita were gorgeous and well maintained! Every little detail had been well thought out, and it showed. We got lots of use out of the firepit- next time we will have to try out the hot tub. I’m just sad we couldn’t stay longer :(
We stayed at Dave’s Rock Reach House the two nights previous to staying here. He runs a 5 star PLUS operation in both places. We loved the outdoor living space at Pioneertown and spent most of our evening and morning on the patio in front of the gas fire except for our “break” to dip in the hot tub under the stars. Dave’s properties are impeccably clean, have everything you need, are beautifully constructed & well thought out, have great decor, wonderful landscaping and are oh so comfortable. AND, the outdoor shower is to die for! Staying here was a peak experience! We will be back!
Had such a great experience renting from Dave. Homestead Modern No. 1 was beautifully appointed, and the property was simply amazing. Would definitely stay here again!
Homestead Modern No. 1 was perfectly laid out. You can tell that there was a lot of care and thought into making the stay enjoyable. The attention to detail on this place was very impressive. Will definitely be recommending this place to others.
There are no words to describe what a perfect experience staying here was. The house is stunning. The property is so peaceful and every accommodation is provided. The hot tub is glorious, the environment unparalleled, the patio is incredible. Dave was a wonderful host, very communicative and warm. I can’t wait to stay here again and I can’t recommend it enough!
We were beyond impressed with Homestead Modern No. 1! The photos were accurate, very clean and our Host Dave was quick to respond. Definitely hope to make it back to Pioneertown again one day. Love...love...love!
The listing was very accurate and the home was extremely well taken care of, not to mention clean and beautiful. Dave is a great host. I was able to text him with any questions or concerns and he responded very quickly. We had an awesome stay.
Highly recommended. Thank you Dave!
This was my second time staying at Dave’s amazing property. This time, I brought along my 70+ year old parents. After a day exploring Joshua Tree, my mom took a dip in the Cowboy Tub and said “It’s so amazing coming home to luxury after a day in the desert.” So, it’s parent-approved! We grilled (Carne Asada and Chicken from Kasa Market!) and had a lovely time. We walked to Pappy & Harriet’s one night, too. I could easily see myself staying there again – for the third time!
From the very beginning, Dave was more than fantastic and most helpful in making this night at the Homestead Modern No. 1 a reality. Our schedules got a little mixed up and Dave was very understanding in helping us resolve the mixup! He was enthusiastic and professional about our stay and ensured everything went as smooth as possible. All in all, this is an amazing modern property amidst magnificent, picturesque sceneries of the desert which you will be delighted to call your home for the short but enjoyable time you are there. This does indeed very boldly combine a destination with a true character with all the amenities one would ever need - read 21st century meets ‘indians and cowboys’. An ‘A star’, commendable in every regard, words can’t do justice to this unique gem. Everything was accurate, truthful and simple to manage/book. A perfect experience.
It was a great experience staying in Dave’s house. Pioneertown is so peaceful and Homestead Modern No. 1 has a very good design. My friends and I spent a wonderful two days and definitely will come back.
Once again, our stay at Homestead Modern No. 1 was perfect. Thank you Dave!
This was the perfect long weekend getaway. David is a 5 star Airbnb host that has very thoughtfully set up this property and is great to communicate with. Everything you need is here, easy to find and with straightforward directions. The layout of the casitas is perfect, beautiful views of the mountains, rocks, plants and wildlife and clear views of the stars at night; the structures are set on the property so that you barely need to switch on a light day and night or use the AC in July. So much light and beautiful blue skies in all directions. Neighbors close enough that you you don’t feel isolated but far enough away to give you privacy and headspace. Walking distance to Pappy & Harriet’s for food and drinks and a short drive down the hill to cafes and stores. A couple of hours drive from LA and you feel like you’re in another world; quieter, more relaxed, less clutter. The outdoor showers and tubs were the icing on the cake. Looking forward to returning. Our visiting family from Australia loved it too.
Dave was very pleasant to deal with — all questions were answered very promptly. House was described and looks as it does in the pictures, so the expectation is met — no surprises. Outdoor grill works great, kitchen is stocked, very clean and new everything. Air conditioning works fantastic during the hot summer day time. The jacuzzi hot tub is wonderful and works great, brand new, and just fantastic for night sky viewing. I would definitely consider staying at another property of Dave’s in the future. Thanks!
Dave was an awesome host. Homestead Modern NO. 1 was even dreamier in person and I couldn’t have wished for a better place to celebrate my birthday. Everything we needed was there down to the seasonings for some good cooking! Me and my friends enjoyed the jacuzzi practically all night I hope to come back very soon!! Thanks Dave!!
The perfect rental for the High Desert!!! New, modern, simple, clean and very cool. Great location with a beautiful view. Walking distance to Pappy & Harriets. GREAT value. We will be back often.
Dave was a wonderful host and Homestead Modern made for lovely lodging for my husband, toddler, and parents. Dave reached out to us about the Lake Fire conditions well in advance of our stay and was compassionate and helpful. Dave went above and beyond, and kept us up to date about the fire conditions.. When we got to Homestead and scoped out the digs (and even watched the fire from not too great a distance), Dave was happy to let us feel it out and cancel if needed. His understanding was truly helpful, and we were so relieved to find the fire retreated so we could enjoy our stay at Homestead. Accommodations were just perfect for our family. When we left, we were already planning a return stay. Gorgeous desert setting, modern and well-appointed furnishings, excellent host!
Great place - really enjoyed our stay!
Homestead Modern No. 1 is amazing. Before you get there you have the rules and handbook that is incredibly detailed, how everything in the house works is in there. The place is cleaned to a Tee. We had all three accommodations for six people and everyone was happy. We being six strong would all do it again in a second, in fact we probably will...
The house was wonderful, the perfect size with everything you could need. Amazingly comfortable bed, great TV and fast internet, and the kitchen is stocked with any appliance you could think of. The spacious outdoor porches have super comfortable furniture for lounging or dining. The hot tub is perfectly located to see all of those stars. The location is quiet and private with no noise from neighbors or traffic. Dave was extremely accommodating.
Beautiful property! Very comfortable stay! Worth every penny! Thank you!
Homestead Modern No. 1 is so beautiful and well considered in terms of the layout of the inside space and in relation to the landscape. We had the most relaxing weekend with some friends cooking food, hanging out under the mountain view from the hot tub and cowboy tub, and walking to Pappy & Harriet’s for a show. This is definitely the best way to experience Pioneertown. Well worth every penny. One of our friends stayed in the trailer which is also not too shabby (enough room for a couple even).
The perfectly designed vacation rental. The owner has thought of everything. Comfortable and quiet with outdoor showers as a bonus.
We stayed at the Homestead Modern No. 1 for 3 nights in October. We rented the entire property - the main house, the casita, and the trailer. While well appointed with design elements, it was super comfortable and family friendly. The location was convenient. We explored Joshua Tree National Park during the day, and enjoyed hanging out on the property during the afternoons and evenings. We had dinner at Pappy and Harriet’s one night, and hired a private chef another night. We had little boys in our group, and they had a blast running around and playing outdoors. We enjoyed the cowboy tub and the hot tub. We hung out by the fire pit at night. The night sky and stars were impressive! Everyone in our group has been raving about our stay at the Homestead Modern No. 1!
Homestead Modern No. 1 was fantastic. We went out for my birthday and it will rank as one of my favorite sites. Thanks, Dave!
Homestead Modern No. 1 is a design dream in the middle of hip Pioneertown. Every thing about the home was perfect: detailed instructions, clean and beautifully furnished, comfortable and accommodating. Dave was a wonderful host. I WILL BE BACK!
Had a fantastic 5 night stay during April. It is a fantastic modernist property, beautifully decorated. The patio area is large and well equipped for lounging around and admiring the desert views. Loved using the hot tub and sitting around the fire was a great way to spend the evenings. A good place to explore Joshua Tree National Park and an easy 40 min drive to Palm Springs. Not too much nearby so bring food and use the well equipped kitchen area and bbq. Highly recommended.
Incredible place - feels completely isolated yet with all the mod-cons !! Truly an experience ... can only underline and repeat all the other positive feedbacks ... we’ll be back !!
My husband and I spent 3 glorious days at this modern luxurious home away from home. We would’ve stayed longer had our scheduled allowed. Everything from the comfortable bedding to the well-equipped kitchen to the effective fire pit to the always hot, hot tub (no need to wait for it to warm up)... all added to making this the perfect escape from the hullabaloo of the LA lifestyle. We brought our 5-month old son and were perfectly comfortable hanging around with him there as well. We will definitely be back!
If you’re going to Pioneertown - this is the place to stay. David definitely knows what he’s doing in terms of design and comfort. I had everything I needed and wanted and the bedding felt like I was sleeping in a cloud! Can’t wait to go back.
There is no other way to describe our stay at Homestead Modern No. 1 other than perfection. From the moment you enter, you are greeted with a magnificent view of the untouched desert. That is only matched by the beauty and simplicity of Homestead Modern.
Fantastic experience in this desert oasis. Comfortable and quiet with beautiful aesthetics. Dave has thought of everything, from the thorough welcome guide to the fully stocked kitchen and TV setup. Will definitely be returning!
We had an amazing experience at Homestead Modern No. 1! There was so much care put into every detail of the property, building and furnishings. It was secluded but still walkable to Pappy and Harriet’s. We will definitely be back!
Homestead Modern No. 1 is impeccably designed and provides guests with an ideal location to enjoy the desert lifestyle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this rental for any occasion.
Perfect setting for our small wedding! Can I give 10 stars? We had a small wedding ceremony and reception here at Homestead Modern No. 1, and it was beyond our dreams! Having the place to ourselves for the weekend made our wedding a real occasion for the family. And yet, with the three separate homes on the property, everyone had their space and privacy. The property is gorgeous, clean, and very well kept. Brad and Dave were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Expectations for the care and upkeep of the property were upfront and clear. Brad was always available to answer questions and make the planning as easy as possible. Other than our specific needs for the ceremony (rentals, flowers, etc.), the property was turnkey with all the amenities and comforts included (extra towels, blankets, kitchenware, a pantry with some basic spices, coffee, tea, etc.). We fell in love with the property, and are already planning a return visit. Thank you to the Homestead Modern No. 1 team for everything.
What more can I say other than WOW! Amazing property, in a great location! Had everything and more. Would stay here again in a heartbeat! Great communication from Dave. Pappy and Harriet’s is a must in the area!
Homestead Modern No. 1 is a magical place. It exceeded all expectations for our small wedding. Our guests raved about how comfortable the beds were and we loved how equipped the kitchen was for entertaining. The landscaping was just beautiful and the jacuzzi is so relaxing. I can’t say enough about how perfect this location was for us. Without hesitation we highly recommend booking Homestead Modern No. 1 for a one of a kind event. Dave is great to work with and very responsive to any question or concern. Thank you for helping us create a dream wedding never to be forgotten. We’re looking forward to sharing all the gorgeous photos!!
We were in town for a wedding and had a fantastic stay at Homestead Modern 1. There were six of us and we used all three units and everyone was happy and comfortable. Everything was exactly as described and as expected. Dave was extremely helpful leading up to the stay with providing additional information, etc. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.
I had such an amazing experience at Homestead Modern No. 1. I stayed for 2 nights with my mom and aunt and we had such a relaxing time. We rented all 3 structures. The rustic/modern design was so sleek and everything was so clean & organized. No detail was overlooked - from the quality of the towels, to the large shower heads, comfortable beds, to how everything was marked & explained in detail.I took advantage of the outside shower the last morning, and it was so nice. I stayed in the trailer, which had windows all around the wall where the bed was. Such a nice view. The property itself is very secluded (there are a few neighboring houses probably a few thousand feet away, but you really feel like you’re by yourself). The landscaping on the property is beautiful, and we saw small rabbits hopping all over. I think I saw some bats at night as well. The hot tub was great for the chilly desert nights. They went above and beyond what is expected from a host, and am so happy I chose to stay here. I will definitely be coming back! If I could give this house an extra star I would. I LOVED it.
Dave’s place is amazing and so well organized. We were impressed with the environment, the comfort of the place, Dave’s responsiveness to all our questions and requests, and wish to thank him for the wonderful weekend his place provided to us. Highly recommended!!
We had an amazing stay at Homestead Modern No. 1! They have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. From a fully stocked kitchen to comfortable outdoor lounge areas to a cozy bed with luxurious linens. Everything was perfect! We loved exploring the quirky little community of Pioneertown. We went for many walks in the area, enjoying the quiet desert. Although there are neighbors, the home is situated in such a way that you will never see any of them! It felt more private and remote than it actually was. We can’t wait to visit again! Our host made sure everything went smoothly and communicated promptly if we required anything.
Loved this house and casita. Modern clean brand new property fully equipped. Hot tub, fire pit, amazing views and a short walk to Pappy and Harriet’s. Already booked for our next stay. Thank you!
The house was great! Very clean and super organised. Dave supplied us with everything from fresh indoor and outdoor towels, blankets for outside, BBQ equipment, clearly labelled instructions, flashlights etc. I was beyond impressed and would definitely recommend to friends. Also, the house is in the best location - walking distance to Pioneertown and Pappy & Harriet’s!
We had a wonderful stay at Homestead Modern No. 1. My husband and I had traveled to Pioneertown before and this time we were bringing friends with us. We were all SUPER impressed with Homestead Modern No. 1 - we all felt very much at home during our six night stay. Where to start? The beds are amazing - very comfy - even in the more modest trailer, the bed and linens felt top-tier. The kitchen in the main house is well equipped with really anything you would need to prepare a great meal. The whole place is very well designed and well thought out - a very easy space to live and be comfortable in. We had a wonderful time BBQing and sitting by the fire-pit at night under the stars. I particularly liked watching the rabbits play in the desert valley while I soaked in the hot-tub. Homestead Modern No. 1 feels very private and has a gorgeous view of the rolling desert mountains that greets you every morning as you sip your coffee on the patio. Also, despite feeling so remote, it is only about a 10 minute walk to the world-famous Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace - great live music - not to be missed! Dave, the host, was very accommodating to our needs and easy to communicate and coordinate with. This was probably the most convenient Airbnb experience I’ve ever had. He also provides guests with a very comprehensive .pdf file that will help you enjoy the house to it’s fullest!
WOW is the best word to describe this place. They have meticulously thought out every detail and it is just perfect. Thanks so much to the Homestead Modern No. 1 crew for an amazing stay, sitting under the stars in the hot tub in the middle of the desert is truly a life-highlight. I’m hoping to come back ASAP.
We had a great time! Beautiful house, nice to relax outside.
Homestead Modern No. 1 could not have been any more perfect. The design is clean and sleek. The location is perfect, a short walk to Pappy + Harriet’s and Pioneertown. The bed in the main house was incredibly comfortable with the softest sheets. The only negative was having to leave! This was my first Airbnb experience, and I will now hold all of my experiences up to this. Everything was well thought out and planned. Dave replied immediately when I had questions. I could not have asked for a better place or host. It truly was perfect.
Dave leaves no detail untouched! This home is well cared for, exceptionally clean and perfectly stocked. My husband and I had a great time enjoying the scenery as well as the home. I highly recommend staying here if you can get a reservation...it’s very popular...but worth the wait! We want to try out his Pioneer Town home next! Enjoy
This was our third stay at Homestead Modern No. 1 in Pioneertown. We love it! Peace and quiet yet located very close to Pappy & Harriet’s, and Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, 29 Palms, etc., is just down the road. Dave has thought of everything. We will be back again for sure.
What can we say. Just read all the reviews. Without a doubt, one of the most relaxing and enjoyable stays anywhere. The attention to detail and the design is just amazing. I mean, All-Clad cookery? Quality linens, towels, a well-stock kitchen and clear instructions on everything you need to know. Nothing has gone overlooked. Communication with Dave was great and we can’t wait to return. But be warned, leaving will be painful.
Wow! I cannot begin to explain how magical this place is! Dave was an amazing host! He replied back to my multiple emails immediately and was very thorough and friendly! When I arrived to Homestead Modern, it felt like christmas morning. Everything was so beautiful, clean, and immaculately designed! The beds were so comfortable that I don’t think I’ve slept that well in a while. The hot tub great, and the outdoor area was so relaxing! I never wanted to leave.
This is it. The ultimate in the Airbnb network. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or looking to simply get away, Dave’s Homestead Modern No. 1 is a 10/10 in every aspect. Most unique, with tremendous attention to detail, the house is a chance at being completely isolated, however Dave has laid out the answer to any question about the property and is available for anything that may come up however we had no questions or problems, only the funnest of times. I sincerely hope I can return again.
Loved everything. Amazing ambience outdoors and indoors. Attention to detail in every way. A truly special place.
Dave was a terrific host. His instructions were clear, the home was clean and his communication was great. The house was well appointed and came with a clear instruction booklet, which made our stay very pleasurable. I would definitely recommend this home and host to anyone considering a trip to Joshua Tree. The house is located on the quiet side of Pioneertown and about 20 minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park.
Wonderful place. Everything is well thought out and brilliantly done, making it feel like you are staying at an upscale hotel. We will definitely come back!
Homestead Modern No. 1 was, in a word, amazing. The house itself was great: comfortable, sparkling clean, and a great place to relax after long days of hiking in Joshua Tree. The location meant that solitude and quiet were easy to come by, not to mention great views of the sky at night. My wife and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This place is truly a hidden gem if you’re planning a visit to Joshua Tree National Forest and/or Pioneertown, in particular. Everything was immaculate and so much attention was given to detail, such as the All-clad pans in the kitchen, blankets for outside, indoor and private outdoor showers, lavender hand soap and shower gel, laundry facilities, towels/robes, etc.! Of course, if you don’t want to cook indoors, you can grill outside while enjoying the amazing views of the desert. For a few stressed out city slickers, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue to decompress. It’s not that far from Joshua Tree National Park, and just minutes away from Pappy and Harriet’s, a famous BBQ joint down the road with live music that serves killer drinks and amazing food (hello, pork chops!). Although we never got to meet the owner in person, he was friendly and quick to respond to any of our inquiries. This place definitely set the bar and my expectations for accommodations in the high desert area!
I absolutely love this place and can’t wait to visit again! The house is exactly as described and photographed and was very clean and bright. The details of the house were so well thought out- this house had so much to experience! It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the surroundings- we didn’t want to leave the property which felt very private. The town and surrounding area is great to walk around, and it is an easy drive to Joshua Tree. Dave is so easy to communicate with and lays out all detail about the house before the stay.
Homestead Modern No. 1 is perfect. The property was spotless and a 5 min walk to Pappy & Harriet’s. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Dave was an incredibly generous host. The home itself was amazing. The main structure and the casita were both clean, gorgeous, comfortable and highly functional. The space was large and luxurious, and in addition to the kitchen, dining area, living room and bedrooms, the outdoor amenities were over the top. Jacuzzi and patio area were also modern and clean and were just what we needed for a relaxing weekend getaway. Situated right in the heart of Pioneertown, the area felt comfortably secluded but still a close drive into town. Our favorite part of the stay was the view of the stars. This is a true gem.
Had a relaxing time at Homestead Modern No. 1. Was impressed on how clean and organized everything was. Definitely would like to visit again. Dave was easy to deal with and responded quickly to questions.
Already plotting my return to Homestead Modern. So many amazing details. Be sure to bring your bathing suit for the jacuzzi and plan on cooking at the house and eating on the patio at sunset. The house has everything you need!
Homestead Modern No. 1 was incredible and totally made our trip to Pioneertown/Joshua Tree memorable. The main house, casita, and the trailer were perfect and the kitchen and grill were fully utilized. Dave and his team paid great attention to detail when constructing the home and outfitting it with state of the art amenities and improvements. He was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions that arose. The location is perfect for star gazing, a quick trip to Pappy & Harriets, and convenient access to Joshua Tree. Hip, tasteful, and oh so comfortable, Homestead Modern No. 1 will be our home in Pioneertown for years to come.
The setting is incredible and peaceful and all you expect from a break in the desert. The patio is relaxing and perfect for long evening chats around the fire pit. Brilliantly located for a stroll to and from Pappy & Harriet’s, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, extremely clean and well equipped - with quality cooking equipment - and well designed to catch sunrise and sunset. Would book again or highly recommend without question.
Definitely would recommend staying at Homestead Modern No. 1. The house is exactly as promised - modern, clean, and with every amenity you could wish for. We immediately regretted not having booked for a longer stay. We will be back for sure! There are also comprehensive instructions about how to work everything in the house, from the TV to the cowboy pool which was appealing to a Type A personality like mine.
The most amazing Airbnb experience! The property is exactly as pictured with beautiful views. Great location, walking distance to Pappy & Harriet’s and an easy drive to Joshua Tree National Park. Dave was a great host. We had an incident at the arrival and had reach out to Dave with an emergency phone call. He was easy to reach, quick to respond and very helpful. We’ are definitely coming back!
Fantastic place, really well organized and kept. Definitely a unique and memorable experience.
We had a great experience at Homestead Modern No. 1. The place was even more amazing than I expected! We loved looking at the night sky, and took advantage of the kitchen and outdoor spaces. The bed was so comfortable- I want to know what kind of mattress it is! Pioneertown is adorable, and I would definitely like to return soon. All in all we are very impressed by Dave’s property, communication, and of course Pioneertown! Thanks Dave!
