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!

So comfortable and fun. The best of glamping. All the outdoor space you love, and a cozy retreat from unpredictable weather. Highly recommend.

Really cool spot ... can see where the owners are going with the entire "village". Was fun to stay in the castle and sleep under the stars on the top floor. Loved the pool area with loungers.

The property is exceptional.

Location: 10 min from downtown - home to some good coffee & food places. Proximity to the park is great as well.

Ryan was really good to us. I had booked both Tower 1 & 2 for 1 night. He was very thoughtful, prompt in all replies and services.

The property itself is of dreams. It's warm, cozy, and welcoming. I would love to stay here again.

This fun, well kept, special partial of land was created for those of us who want to escape and be in a safe, pristine, and really cool place. It’s so special here and I can’t wait to go back and stay at another one of the structures on this beautiful and peaceful property.

This castle estate is the perfect desert getaway. Ryan was very welcoming and he gave us a cool debriefing of the lay of the land/property, suggestions on where to dine/get coffee, and cool things to do around the area. I enjoyed the late afternoons and evenings since the place feels really secluded while you dip in the pool, shower outside, use the fire pit, or watch the moon rising from the rooftop. We brought food to cook over the fire pit but you could just order everything there (like room service) if you don’t want to lug around a lot. The property is very clean and well kept. We can’t wait to come back next year!

Ryan was the most chill and easy host I’ve ever met. The Castle Tower 1 was more than we expected. The layout was beautiful. The view from the rooftop was beautiful during sunrise and sunset. We loved everything about the place. The pool was perfect for a small group to cool down. The fire pit was nice too underneath the stars. The outdoor shower was a fun experience. It makes you shower quicker. Although the outdoor toilet could use an upgrade, we didn’t mind it. We will be back soon to experience the yurt or the container. We felt really safe and enjoyed our time there!
