Joshua Tree, California has been coming up pretty often in my travel research: It seems that whatever you need from your vacation—a desert escape, a cabin prime for unplugging, or a geodesic dome—the answer lies in the West Coast respite, home to the eponymous national park.

In addition to being an ideal destination for a de-stressing digital detox under the stars, Joshua Tree is also where the Integratron sound bath resides. The scientific-looking structure is not only a great place to experience the healing properties of sound, but its also doubles as a history museum of sorts. Not only has it been around since the 1950s, but its architect, George Van Tassel, claimed that he was instructed to create it by visitors from Venus. Woo-woo wowness, much?

Regardless of your stance on otherworldly beings, I bet I’ve piqued your interest in the destination. If so, here are some of the most serene Airbnbs for a stay in Joshua Tree.
