This past week, the Geminid Meteor Shower was schedule to make a fly by past Earth after a 4 year hiatus. We needed to escape the light pollution of Los Angeles to enjoy the show, so we decided to go to one of our favorite desert towns just a few hours from Los Angeles, Joshua Tree.
We’ve been eyeing the Jackrabbit Wash on AirBNB for quite some time, marveling at the high desert home designed and hand-built by Arron D’Innocenzo. So we decided to finally book a night to enjoy the property. By the way, when I mention the house was hand built by one person, that’s not an exaggeration. Mr. D’Innocenzo built the entire thing himself over the course of 8 years. No contractors, subcontractors, or helpers involved.
Entering the home, the first thing that catches your eye is the stylish, sophisticated interior and the view of the surrounding desert and mountains. While just a short trip from downtown Joshua Tree, the area feels remote, offering a feeling of exclusivity. The 1600 square feet interior of the home is comprised of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining & living area. The exterior features a deck, patio, swimming pool, hot tub, and an oversized 2 car garage.
Unique decor pieces, light fixtures and stylish furniture choices are a delight for any interior design enthusiast. The home features high attention to detail, and the spaciousness of the living area allows for a comfortable stay for several guests.
The meteor shower was a beautiful show, and we had a relaxing front row seat thanks to the hot tub. But sunrise that followed the morning after stole the show. It was a treat to be able to enjoy it from Jackrabbit Wash’ large patio.
