The ULTIMATE "Tiny House" experience!  Featured on HGTV: The Castle House Estate (Guard Tower) brings Tiny Home living to another level, located in the heart of Joshua Tree and minutes from the National Park. This unique medieval piece of architecture blends indoor-outdoor living with an emphasis on entertaining.  The Castle House Estate is situated on eight picturesque acres, surrounded by many more private undeveloped acres.

The Castle House Guard Tower is a custom three level living space & loft.  Each piece of furniture has been custom made to fit this unique round space which includes a queen sized bed in the loft.  Did we mention 1500 thread count sheets and Pure Care Plush memory foam pillows?

The full glass door and windows have been placed strategically to catch the desert light. For outside adventurers step up to the rooftop hatch to enjoy your views or bring your sleeping bags and sleep under the stars.  ***WEATHER PERMITTING***

Each tiny home includes it own outdoor wood burning fire-pit and two chairs perfect for enjoying the outside elements of Joshua Tree & where you can enjoy a few cold ones and roast s'mores.

The Castle House has a portable restroom facility at the end of the property and another at the right front corner of the property.  There is an outdoor shower just behind the main house. Look for the wood bench.  The showers are solar and only 5.5 gallons so the hot water goes fast. Nothing says Joshua Tree like showering in nature.

Pet cleaning fee is $20-$40. Please notify us of the breed to determine if it’s a good fit. Larger dogs require an increased pet fee.

There is no running water in the units.  Each unit comes with jug of fresh drinking water good to use for your daily needs and our coffee makers.  The Castle House is GLAMPING at its finest!

*Queen sized plush dual control heated blanket rentals available upon request*

I stumbled across this gorgeous spot by accident and I’m so glad I did. My sweet boyfriend and I wanted to take a little getaway and spend some quality time together in a quiet environment away from the city. We love the outdoors and nature. The location and guard tower we stayed in was more than we were expecting. We loved the whole secluded vibe. It felt like we were alone the whole time just the two of us which was awesome. I met the owner Ryan as we were getting ready to settle in. He introduced himself and was so nice and attentive. He asked if we needed anything which was very sweet. The architect of the tower buildings were a sight to see like no other. The land was simple yet breathtaking at the same time. The decor inside was very homey and inviting. The private rooftop was the cherry on top. The pool was great I could stay in there all day. We loved the fire pit and we were able to cook up some juicy burgers hot dogs and some delicious s’mores. Our next spot was the rooftop and we were left speechless with the view of the starry sky. We were so close to the stars I could literally touch them. We spent hours just in awe. Lots of deep convos and reflections took place. It’s a great place to bond definitely. We named a star after each other and set our affirmations. After we did that we saw a shooting star and then another mins later! We made our wishes for sure. We would and have recommended this place to others. It’s a must do. Thank you Ryan for the wonderful experience. We miss it already.

This was probably the best place we’ve stayed at in Joshua tree. It was the perfect getaway with just enough isolation and minimal simplicity that we needed. Can’t wait to come here again and bring friends!

This was my first experience with planning a stay through this app and it was a great experience. Everything was exactly as described, if not better, and we had no issues.

Quaint tower with very clean interior and very well kept. I stayed with two other guests and would not recommend a party of three or more as the area tends to fill up rather quickly. Sleeping under the stars on the roof was quite an experience although I’d recommend someone with upper arm strength is around to open/close the hatch from the inside as me and my other female guests had some trouble doing so. Lots of open space on the outside to roam around and have your pets roam around as well. Fire pit was so cool. Definitely a must for a one night stay for two.

Ok, the place was gorgeous! It was a rainy/overcast day but the sunset was amazing! I can't stress enough how welcoming the host's were during our stay. So easy to find with a lot of nearby food and gas. Worth every penny. Can't wait to see the new additions! We will be back!

Beautiful, stylish unique tower! The tower was spotless and the a/c worked perfectly. Amazing view of the sunrise and sunset from bed as well as from the rooftop. Five stars for the castle house estate!
