Property description

Why Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood, Demie Moore, among others celebrities have already choose to stay at Calmada Private Resort?...
Because it's a private, upscale and luxury resort located in the middle of 600 secluded acres and is privately nestled behind rocks, in the heart of the new National Monument "Sand To Snow" in Pioneertown and near Joshua Tree National Park at 4.200 feet.

All 6 rooms and 6 private bath opening to the gardens surrounding this near 5.000 sq.ft, unique property in the area who is totally... PAPARAZZI PROOF !...;-)

But, Calmada Private Resort HAS ALSO 2 BIG PLUS:

1/ We are the ONLY ONE Property in Pioneertown where you can CHECK-IN AS EARLIER AS 10:00 AM on Friday morning (vs 3:00 PM) and Check-out LATE* on Sunday, around 4:00 PM vs 11:00 AM,, so it's more than + 12 HOURS of fun, relaxing and enjoying time with our rental.

2/ You could have your own Chef, meaning if you want a brunch, lunch or dinner to celebrate any events, our Private Chef will be able to work directly with you for a very reasonable fee: i.e. brunch is only $19 per person...Please request at reservation.

And now, as we are proud to be part of the new National Monument "Sand To Snow" dedicated by President Obama on February 12, 2016, everything is about sit back, relax and loose yourself in your favorite book, gaze at the multiple species of birds, look at night at the fabulous Milky Way, shooting stars, International Space Station or rediscover your favorite musician, author or artist within.

After a long day of hiking and exploring the Flora and Fauna, enjoy a toast as you relax next to the non-heated swimming pool or near the wood-burning fireplace! And as the Milky Way slowly emerges directly above you, stargazing will become your newest passion. It's also one of the unique place to observe the International Space Station crossing at speed of 27.700 miles per hour, 450 miles above your head...This is Just A-MA-ZING!...(Download the IOS App: GoISSWatch) to follow it live above Calmada Private Resort with the binocular that you'll find in the house....

Inside, you will find the spacious living room and 6 rooms all decorated to the finest details by international famous designer and owner, Chris Beaugrand. Beautiful Art and eclectic painting from her and artist painter Lillian Shaoa or desert giant pictures from LA famous photographer Olivier Pojzman dorns the walls paired with sophisticated and unexpected furniture and decoration. The 6 bedrooms both open onto the “secret” gardens where views and wildlife greet you with each step into this luxurious and totally private sanctuary.

The fully equipped kitchen is ready for those who wish to indulge the pallet through culinary delight.

While only minutes from the famous music bar and restaurant Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, one has a feeling of being miles away from everything. Pipes Canyon is bordered by 35,000 acres of The Pioneertown Mountains Preserve to the West and 60,000 acres of Federal land to the North and is one of the best places to share special time with those whom you enjoy most.

Being here is like living in your own private national park. Views are of mountains, mesas, and boulders with miles of hiking and riding trails just out the door! Being at an elevation of 4200 ft (1.500 meters), the summers are cool (15 to 20 degrees cooler than Joshua Tree and 20 – 25 degrees than Palm Springs) and winter often brings a small dusting of snow, time to start a nice wood fire in our double fireplace...

The special attention to quality, design and comfort separates this home from all others in this area. In addition, we can also arrange guided hiking, horse riding, gold panning and antiquing tours.

We are approximately, 10 minutes to Old Town Yucca Valley, 15 minutes to the main entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, 30 minutes to Downtown Palm Springs, 60 minutes to winter time fun at Big Bear Ski Resort and just over two hours and half from Los Angeles and San Diego.

Whatever your passion might be, you will find inspiration at Calmada Private Resort: The NEW UPSCALE Place to BE!
