Joshua Tree AirBnB Design

Our signature personalization emphasizes function, amenities and experience to make your short term rental a true retreat


Our goal in starting Retreat was to share knowledge with AirBnB hosts that desire a leg up on the market competition, but need experienced help with marketability, design and interior styling photography.

Every project is rooted in the optimization of your property, to make it the most marketable it can be for the future. But, there is equal emphasis placed on transforming your space visually and adding our signature sensibilities. Let’s get Wild.

    Together Kate and Betsy examine the entire offering of short term rentals in your market and will assess the occupancy averages and the local must haves for your spot to hit those high level rates. Whether or not you choose to pursue a design execution with our team, we will share these insights.


    Designing a sturdy vacation rental should have a different approach from residential design. But, it should be done without losing the touch of being in a personalized space. We bring in the layers that tell a story about who lives there. And guess who lives there? It’s your guests’ most aspirational self.


    We hope to push your boundaries with novelty through design. Swings in the living room? Nordic nets over the bed or an accent wall mural? Neon signs? How about an eye catching wallpaper? These are the moments that delight your guests and prompt them to book your space before others. Let us help you identify the best amenities to add to your property to get that top dollar rate.

    Kate Shaw
    Riley Enterprises

    With a strong focus on business and director level marketing Kate quickly rose through the ranks in the LA startup world. Eventually she canned that 9-5 life and struck out on her own to travel and see more of the world. Through her love of travel, the AirBnB bug bit and with almost immediate success, she launched RILEY ENTERPRISES, her own collection of short term rental properties. Now, with years of Super Host distinction under her belt, Kate is independent and relies solely on the income from her properties. She manages a range of styles and configurations and is intimately familiar with the AirBnB markets in Joshua Tree, Long Beach, Thousand Oaks and counting.
