Beautiful, comfortable, huge and fully self-contained studio within my mid-century Joshua Tree desert home, Casa Shangri La.
The property sits on 5 acres of land where you can experience infinity views of the desert and the mountains; and at night you can gaze up at a million twinkling stars that feel about an arms-length away from your own outdoor relaxation space with own patio and fire pit.
Experience peace, quiet, wildlife and endless starscape in style — on the grid but off the beaten track only 12 minutes from entrance to the national park
This is the perfect place to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower or any magical celestial event!
Casa Shangri La's studio itself is huge, and has its own private entrance and patio (and plenty of parking on the secure, gated property). It’s thoughtfully decorated in keeping with the mid-century architecture and features an extremely comfortable king-size bed (an extra bed can easily be added, if required), a writing desk, sofa, dining table and fireplace as well as refrigerator, hotplate, toaster oven and coffee-maker, cooking utensils, plates and everything you'll need in a kitchenette.
There’s also a fiendishly cool, private and totally unexpected bathroom with bath and shower. There are plenty of brand new sheets, blankets and towels and the studio has air-conditioning plus a heater for those chillier desert nights.
This is a magical property and very, very private . It’s the perfect escape from the big city and offers the kind of serenity that artists, writers and those simply stressed by the city will all appreciate. After 5 minutes absorbing the special energy here, one’s shoulders instantly relax, and after a few hours, one feels refreshed with a fully rebooted hard-drive. Stargaze from reclining chairs or escape desert heat in the outdoor 8 x 8 foot cowboy tub with infinity desert views.
You will witness wild animals in their native habitat. The cottontail rabbits, cactus wrens, lizards, desert tortoises, jackrabbits, coyotes, owls and roadrunners that make the desert their home make a visit to Casa ShangriLa all the more special. We care about the environment, and the property is fully solar poered
Casa Shangri La feels remote, but is only 11 minutes from Joshua Tree and is about 2 hours and 15 minutes from LA and 45 minutes east of Palm Springs. There are plenty of cool places to visit within a short drive, including the extraordinary Joshua Tree National Park which must be seen at least once in life to truly appreciate its majestic grandeur.
The amazing Integratron is about 20 minutes away, and if you’re looking for a cool night out, the famed Joshua Tree Saloon is 10 minutes from the property, and at 20 minutes away is Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown (which is worth visiting any time of the day or night for the incredible Wild West shows and ambience) which offers live shows by many cool bands, who sometimes just stop by and jam, especially during the Coachella Music Festival. I would happily cater for you if you would like me to get flowers, gifts or special treats for celebrations. I can also help you plan your stay, reserve tables at good places like Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace, The 29 Palms Inn , Joshua Tree Saloon or even book your sound bath at the Integratron.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you and introducing you to the very considered and special retreat that is the studio at Casa Shangri La. Whether you’re just traveling through or looking to stay for a little bit longer, let’s talk – I know you’ll love it here. It’s peace, style,, comfort and serenity personified.

The studio is fully self contained with it's own outdoor areas, parking, amenities and entrance adjacent to my home.
Washing machine/dryer is for people who stay 4 nights or more, and is situated in the main house on the property.
The environment: You can drink the water on the property. It has been filtered through a charcoal filter. I provide you with multi use water bottles and glass bottles with fresh water in the fridge to minimise single use plastic waste.
I also provide you with high quality amenities like natural shampoo and conditioner in refill bottles for the same reason.
The house is fully solar powered.
I am easy, but no loud parties or animals, as there are burrowing owls and road runners nesting on the property as well as desert squirrels, gophers, chipmunks and foxes about. Show the wild animals respect and keep distance from the nests and burrows, making sure to disturb the animals and birds as little as possible. Please keep noise level down after 10PM. ALWAYS turn air condition and lights off when leaving the house! Remember you are in a desert, so please be mindful about use of water, make sure that the fire pit is ALWAYS covered and NEVER used if the winds are higher than 5 mph (San Bernadino fire legislation). Please take your rubbish with you, and never, ever dispose of ANYTHING non-human apart from toilet paper in the loo (-i.e. no kitchen roll, facial wipes, q-tips, tampons or the like). Never dispose of cigarette buds in the desert, and put them out with water when you are done smoking outside (the desert is dry = fire hazard!) ANY sign of smoking inside the studio, will incur an extra 100 dollar cleaning fee, as well as leading to instant eviction with no right to any refund. No exceptions! This covers deep cleaning. I inspect textiles in the studio, and clean everything properly after each guest. For make up removal: Please use the cotton wool or pads provided. Unremovable stains means new textiles, and I will charge you as follows if stains does not come off in the wash: New sheet sets: $30. Bath towel: $5. Hand towel: $4, Wash cloth: $3. Robe: $15. For wine, tea and coffee stain on rugs, furniture and mattresses: The cost of cleaning or replacement by equivalent item. Any vandalism means that the guest cover replacement cost.
For your own protection, I recommend wearing closed toe shoes at all times in the desert, and use a torch at night (you'll find one on the premises). Thank you so much. :-)
