Villa Anita DV is more than just a place to stay the night. It is a growing interactive large-scale art installation, where you can meet and stay with the artists that are creating it. Completely one-of-a-kind, Villa Anita has become more than just a room to spend the night, but a multi-faceted destination for curious travelers to experience a distinct way of life in the desert. Combining the qualities of a boutique hotel, art museum, botanical garden, learning classroom, and wellness venue, Villa Anita has become the convergence of sculpture, architecture, and living in the Mojave desert.
The property at Villa Anita is an expanse of artfully curated guest cabins, lush gardens, common rooms, creative spaces, and unique venues for parties, weddings, classes, workshops and more. Although the property is considered an ever evolving museum, the guest rooms, cabins, and common spaces are clean, comfortable and incredibly unique. If you are looking for an experience that engages all the senses, look no further. Villa Anita is the place for you!
It is important to know the ever-evolving nature of Villa Anita is a result of the constant work the artists in residence contribute on a daily basis. This means you will see paint buckets, piles of wood, pallets, and other materials around the property, as well as ongoing projects under construction. This is not your average place to stay, but a destination in and of itself. You'll have to just see it for your own eyes!

"The experience of Villa Anita is well beyond just a pit stop, you will be welcomed, entertained, fed with love and more than well cared for while you roam this funky artsy atmosphere, and make some soulful new friends."
"Leave your expectations at home and be open to the big, fat, enveloping artistry of Villa Anita. This was not a "stay," but rather an experience that unfolded in discoveries and delights. The villa itself is a labyrinth of art across media, funky to fine and designed, I think, to keep you wandering and wondering and wanting for more."
