◦ ABOUT THE OWNERS
Matt and Kristi Kautz are newlyweds from Santa Monica, CA. Matt is a VP at Warner Brothers Studios, and Kristi is a former Ad Sales Marketing exec. Their high desert story began with a shared obsession with Joshua Tree, exploring it together as often as they could until they finally decided to buy a place nearby of their own. When they came across two mid-century houses on ten pristine acres bordering protected land as far as the eye can see, they fell in love. Local legends of alien encounters and vortex fields on the property inspired them to transform the 50's houses into Starship Landing: a place for space, whether it’s physical, mental, or cosmic. Today, they couldn't be happier that they get to share this magical space with their guests.
