Rich in the vibrant spirit of groovy decades past, a stay at House of Sunshine is a colourful, Insta-worthy blast from the past that’ll enliven all of your senses at once!

Secluded in California’s tranquil Yucca Valley, the famed Joshua Tree National Park is a short drive away, while the local Old Town neighbourhood is strewn with vintage shops and laid-back eateries that continue to evoke a blissful sense of decades past.

Be warned, however: once you’ve explored your time-capsule retreat, you may never want to leave!

Radiating peace, love, and sun-soaked Californian vibes, every room pays jaw-dropping homage to the bygone eras of disco and flower power. Bespoke furnishings have been painstakingly crafted by the dedicated owner herself, while the living room sports an eye-catching retro wall-mural that we defy you not to photograph!

In amongst the vintage accessories and groovy décor are sleek modern conveniences that include a dishwasher and a Smart TV… though you might prefer firing up the record player and choosing something from the well-chosen vinyl collection.

(There’s even a dedicated space in the dining room with a piano and guitar, for those who prefer making their own sweet music!)

Meanwhile, three double bedrooms each boast their very own style, character, and colour. A thing of wonder, the sage-green master room features a custom king-sized circular bed, designer lighting, and its own en-suite bathroom.

More information

The second bedroom is a cheerful haven of yellows and oranges, with a dedicated workspace and direct access to the magnificent sun-room. And last but not least, the woodsy, whimsical third double sports a walk-in closet that’s ideal for the fashionistas in your group.

Favourite room claimed, it’s time to break out a traditional board game and get competitive, or if the California sun just happens to be shining, kick back in the wide open outdoor space awhile.

Here you’ll find fun outdoor games, soft-swaying hammocks to chill out with a good book in, and a barbecue area for sizzling sunset suppers against that rugged desert landscape…

…promptly followed by a stargazing dip in the sunken hot tub, or an invigorating plunge in the huge cowboy tub soaking pool!

There’s plenty to see and do close by, should you feel so inclined. Palm Springs is just 40 minutes away by car, and there are plenty of must-try activities to indulge in, including the Integration Sound Baths.

But as we say, you’re going to have to leave your groovy House of Sunshine first!
