Invisible House is a mirrored 22-story horizontal skyscraper that virtually disappears into the desert landscape that surrounds it.
For $2,500 a night (€2,100), you and 7 friends will have 90 acres (36 hectares) all to yourself, plus a 1,200m mountain and access to Joshua Tree National Park in southeastern California.
The house was designed by a film producer and an artist to help guests connect with nature. Features like floor-to-ceiling sliding doors bring the outdoors in, while walking paths on the surrounding land allow you to get closer to nature.
The owners say the property was built to “float on the rocks” and have minimal impact on the landscape. They say the property’s footprint is close to zero as it is powered by electricity and built with eco-friendly materials.
Guests have access to a one bedroom house just off the main house. Known as the OMD prefab, it was moved from its original home on Venice Beach and was also designed with eco-friendly credentials in mind.
When not hiking in Joshua Tree National Park, guests can use the 100-foot (30m) indoor pool, 86-inch 4K TV, or barbecue grill that converts into a fire pit.
In addition to being a vacation home, Invisible House can be booked for private events. The 20m projection wall will definitely make your Powerpoint presentation stand out.
Previous guests have said Invisible House was: “A once-in-a-lifetime place to stay. Loved the house, the fire pit, the pool…all the great hikes that start from the house. Amazing!!!” and, “This is an amazing gem! Stunning. The best airbnb I’ve stayed in.”
