Sara Combs, 36, and Rich Combs, 37, quit full-time jobs as web designers to start The Joshua Tree House, a hospitality company, in 2015. Three years later, they purchased an abandoned inn in Tucson, AZ for $615,000. The couple took out a hard money loan and renovated the entire property into a luxurious desert getaway. Today, the six-suite inn is available to rent year-round and offers views of Saguaro National Park. The couple also owns three other commercial properties located in Joshua Tree, CA.
