AirB&B is a great lodging option for your Joshua Tree stay, however, there are many people operating AirB&Bs’ here who do not live within the community. Cliffhanger Guides feels that it is very important to support local business owners and local economies. For the health of our local infrastructure, please make sure the home owner is a member of the Joshua Tree community. AirB&B and VRBO are currently unregulated and are having serious repercussions. Below you will find a list of long time locals, genuinely good people, and friends of Cliffhanger who are offering their lovely and unique homes as vacation rentals for those seeking a desert retreat.
