Villa Kuro

When all this craziness is over, you will probably want to escape to a place designed with tranquility and relaxation in mind. Nestled on an unfenced 3.6 acres in front of an ancient boulder mountain, in Joshua Tree, California, Villa Kuro is a ranch-style property that was built in 1966, and recently transformed by Los Angeles studio Mini Inno, to deliver this stunning desert hideaway. Fusing natural simplicity with contemporary luxuries, the gorgeous property is inspired by nature and wabi-sabi, the Japanese philosophy about finding beauty in imperfection and embracing it. This is the perfect haven for those seeking a relaxing quiet retreat or romantic getaway. At night, the fire pit and salt water hot tub offer an unparalleled stargazing experience.
