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*

A super unique stay in a tower

You can see the vision of the owners and it will be incredible in just a short time. The towers are wonderful sites in the desert and getting to stay in one was a joy! We slept up top under the stars and couldn't believe how unique this place is. Our neighbors in the yurts were very loud into the late evening, but they were having fun and what can you do? Though a noise ordinance could be effective. Also, parking in the back is a slight inconvenience, so a designated unloading zone would be helpful, though everyone made due parking in the road. This is all glamping, so the port-a-potties were fine. We loved the little pool, which was clean and complete with a nice, new deck. The fire pit was great to have! The interior of the tower was so clean and gorgeous. LOVED it.

Wonderful stay! The tower was nicely decorated and clean with an amazing rooftop loft. The views were unreal, and the design of the property was incredibly unique. Our host was highly accommodating and even gave us cooking oil, sait and pepper and plates for a late-night grill. Great experience and awesome communication - would absolutely recommend!

Nice getaway location post being homebound for months. The location was convenient to main roads, grocery stores and shops, the national park, etc. Everyone we connected with during our stay were awesome..no issues practicing social distancing. Great place if you have a large dog and they need some real space to run free. Having the fire pit close by was a plus.

The Castle House Estate is such a magical experience. The pool is a great way to cool off during the day & the rooftop is amazing for stargazing at night. We loved the ambiance. The host was very attentive and responded quickly to messages. It was such a wonderful experience!! Highly recommend.
