Jutting out of the rocky landscape like a modernist fever dream, the Rock Reach House is indeed real. Built using an innovative light-gauge steel system, this house sits not far from Joshua Tree National Park, and is available for short-term rental. Each of the two bedrooms has its own private patio, enabling guests to soak in the views of the surrounding rocks, juniper, and desert oak trees, and for an actual soak, there's also a hot tub and outdoor shower. Back indoors, you'll find a high-end kitchen, a handsome living room, and wi-fi, and when it's time to unplug, you can enjoy the cool night air from the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace.
