We are from Los Angeles, and with our young children we enjoy hiking and relaxing at our desert home!
This is a fabulous house with lots of good energy and beautiful scenery. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the bright colors and styling!
Had a fantastic time this past weekend at Los Encantos. The house is lovely, unique and in a really breath taking location. The hiking trail a short walk away had some incredible rock formations and was easy to find and follow. Loved grilling, hot tubbing and chatting around the fire with friends. Brian and Karen made everything easy to understand and laid out everything very clearly. Thank you!! I will always remember this weekend.
Great place and great hosts. Our party of 6 had plenty of room. Great location, close to Pappy and Harriet's and historic downtown Yucca Valley. Being able to soak in the hot tub under the desert stars after a day of wandering is really great. We look forward to our next visit.
This home was beyond what we could have wished for. Our time here was magical - the setting is like a private Joshua Tree park, and the location, near the Integratron and Pappy and Harriet's, is ideal. The home itself is comfortable and gorgeous, and everyone in our party hopes to return. Thanks Brian!
The place was great and had everything we needed, and Brian was helpful and easy to get in touch with. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away for a few days.
Amazing place! We had a family gathering here in October. It was such a peaceful place. If you want to get out in the desert and enjoy nature this is the place! We star gazed by the fire pit and listened to the quiet desert night! It was fantastic! The house has everything you need. Just make sure you get tree during day light because it is hard to find in the dark. I would rent this space again! Thanks Brian! Karina -Los Angeles, CA
Beautiful home and helpful and responsive host. def recommend!
This was an AMAZING base from which to explore the Beauty of Joshua Tree!! We were a fairly large party of 10 people, but the house had plenty of space and is very light and airy. The desert is literally right there when you open the door, and I have never seen so many bright stars in the evening, it was truly magical. Everything was clean and easy to figure out - Hot Tub was fantastic. Brian made everything super easy, a great host. I would recommend arriving at the property during daylight, as it is slightly off the beaten track, which was not easy in the dark. Having said that, it is it's location which makes it so special. I would 100% recommend this house.
We stayed for three nights with six people and had the most wonderful time. The house is very spacious, has four double beds and two bathrooms. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and has everything one could need, including basic things like salt, oil and so on. The oven is easy to use and keeps the whole house warm (it was below freezing at night and also snowed a bit!). One of the bathrooms has heating too. The hot tub outside was a dream, everything was very clean and beautifully designed. It is a good place for a couple, for friends or for families. We loved the fact that the house is absolutely private, yet you can receive text and get in contact with the owners at any time. The supermarket is not far away. We have stayed in the area before, but always had to share property with the owners or had close-by neighbours. To be totally to ourselves, yet just connected enough, is a great advantage. There are many boulder formations and Joshua Trees literally a few steps from the house. We can only recommend renting it!
