Joshua Tree house description

Los Encantos is a charming and funky desert oasis.

Located in Pipes Canyon, near Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park (20 minutes away), take refuge in your own private park. Boulders, cacti, joshua trees, and wildlife abound on the property and in the over 40,000 acres of untouched wilderness that directly border our home.

The colorful home has 2 bedrooms and 2 uniquely styled bathrooms, with a third room available for use as a bedroom. It can sleep up to 10 (utilizing 2 available queen air-beds and one futon sofa-bed). With full amenities, it is ideal for a one or two-family retreat.

The 7-person outdoor hot tub is perfect for day or night, and in season a refreshing solar-heated pool is also available.

You will notice immediately the quiet that envelops you, and there's also no phone, TV, or internet. Cell phones may work on the property in certain locations if you really must. You won't miss them.

Instead, stay up at night watching the incredible starry skies - it's almost a guarantee you'll see a shooting star or three. Bring a telescope and view Saturn's rings.

Visit the world-famous Pappy and Harriet's for good food and great music anytime, or come for the music festivals whether at Pappy's or other venues in the high (and even low) desert. Explore Joshua Tree National Park, the antique stores of Yucca Valley, or try a novel sound bath at the Integratron in Landers. Or just soak in the hot tub and enjoy the profound silence.

From your base at Los Encantos, the desert is yours.

              Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
              We wanted to build a retreat from our busy city lives for ourselves and our two small children. It is a place to relax, connect, and enjoy life!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We've always loved the desert - the skies, sunsets, landscape, and stars especially - and this property offered us the very best of what we love about it!
