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 !...;-)
Calmada Private Resort HAS 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, a Chef will be able to work directly with you for a very reasonable fee.
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!

Formerly, Calmada was a ranch to raise buffalos for more than 20 years. Today, we're dedicated to create a upscale, luxury and peace full place to relax in the High Desert, judt in front of the new National Monument "Sand To Snow" dedicated on Feb.12th, 2016 by President Obama.
The view on 360 degres from boulders to wash and from the Milky Way and shooting stars at night is just amazing...
This place is amazing and now part of the "Sand To Snow" New Monument Park dedicated by President Obama just on our arrival day! Calmada Private Resort is the peace full place on Earth.
This house is amazing. The owners were vwondeeful to deal with from the start. They were very quick to answer my emails. They met us upon arrival and gave us a thorough tour. There is so much room. It has multiple outdoor sitting areas so there is plenty of room without all being in one place. The scenery is beautiful and the starry skies at night are breathtaking. It was fun watching the wildlife. We especially enjoyed the jack rabbits all over. I highly recommend this house.
Our recent stay at Calmada House was absolutely fantastic! The size and location of the house is ideal. We had the whole family (14 of us) staying there for a wedding reception at Pappy's & Harriet's. The living area of the house was huge and no one got in each other's way. The décor is eclectic and all the rooms are large & very comfortable. The family went for hikes right outside the property and we really enjoyed the huge gazebo & pool. The large patio areas have plenty of seating, which was great for our larger party. We highly recommend having Chef Philippe cook for you. He made us a fabulous dinner for the family one night and cooked for a larger group the next night. Food was outstanding and he had helpers serve drinks & handle the buffet.
Chef Philippe is an outstanding cook and the nicest guy; along with Ben, who handles the property.
Our family was so happy we chose Calmada House for our get together. It was perfect! We hope to return for another reunion next year. Thank you, Benoit & Chris!
A group of 7 of us spent 5 days at Calmada Private Resort to get away for a short holiday. We couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect vacation rental. Calmada is quite spacious and well laid out - there are 6 giant bedrooms each with a private bath so that you always have a comfortable space to retreat to. The home was wicked clean and the grounds are magnificently cared for. We hired Calmada's private chef, Philippe, and were blown away by his culinary expertise! Both Philippe and the groundskeeper, Ben, were there to cater to our every need and ended up becoming cherished friends by the end of our stay.
If you think you are going to the desert and won't run into natural wildlife like spiders and lizards, you are sorely mistaken. But if you respect the natural surroundings you will rejoice in your time spent in this magical place and cherish the memories you bring back with you. I can't wait to return to Calmada!
We have just returned from another magical and memorable stay in paradise at Calmada Private Resort. We have visited this estate every year, sometimes twice a year for the last 3 years. We have vacationed here with extended family and groups of friends. We always have big plans for outings but can't ever seem to tear ourselves away from our own private resort. The estate is so spacious both inside and outside that everyone has their own private space and tranquility to enjoy. Our favorite experiences are the pool with a view of the mountains that is absolutely stunning; dinner with the adorable Chef Philippe and outdoor Milky way by the pool - it doesn't get better. The management is always super attentive. Benoit, who attends the property, is always so helpful and attentive. One visit he even ran out to fill the butane tank for us. You will absolutely enjoy every aspect of this private resort. There is one down side - when it is time to pack up and leave...We will be back!
Our Women's spiritual circle of eight women (three from Alaska, three from Texas, one from Oregon, and one from Indiana that met six years ago at a gathering in Montana and get together at least once a year in a beautiful nature setting) stayed here and nicknamed the home "The Aphrodite House" because of the expansive beauty found both in and outside the property. We experienced exquisite sunrises and sets, star gazing, and beyond description, dancing, fun and friendship. Plenty of room inside and out to spread out and enjoy!
We cooked fabulous meals together (though the kitchen is a bit outdated and is going to be renovated) and even treated ourselves one evening to a scrumptious dinner prepared by talented and gracious Chef Phillipe.
Calmada is an exceptional place, what we refer to as a "magical" place. The desert speaks and treasures wait to be discovered there.
Our group of eight women would love to return sometime and once again let ourselves share deeply, listen to the voice of the wind whistling through the Joshua trees, breathe deeply, relax and rejuvenate, cradled in Calmada, surrounded by the sheer beauty of the desert.
After being there a few days, we went into Palm Desert. Exposed to the hustle, bustle and noise of the city, we couldn't wait to return to the serenity Calmada provided -- our "home away from home" for the week.
As you can tell, we loved it as it met our needs quite perfectly and we couldn't have had a better experience.
Calmada is a desert treasure. Hope you will have the opportunity to discover and experience it yourself one day.

Calmada Resort is a wonderful place to stay if you are contemplating visiting Joshua Tree National Park or if you just want to relax in the high desert of Southern California. The home offers ample and comfortable common space for a large group to gather and enjoy both inside and outside. The views from the home are spectacular anytime of the day. Star gazing, sunrises and sunsets are magnificent and just a step outside the door. The home is set on beautiful grounds and backs up to many acres of wilderness where you can hike the day away right from the property. There are petroglyphs and other hiking trails just a 10 minute car ride away and one of the Joshua Tree NP entrances is 30 minutes away with many more hiking opportunities.
If you stay here, I would highly recommend Chef Philippe. He is, in a word, superb! Our crew of 10 (5 adult middle aged couples who enjoy traveling together) had him prepare 3 meals for us daily and we could not have been happier with his selections and presentations. The owners, Benoit and Chris, are delightful and gracious, greeted us on arrival and departure, gave us access to a phone if needed, and were very attentive to any of our questions.
I look forward to returning to this wonderful retreat in the desert in the future. It is a spectacular place to call home for a vacation.
We are now in the middle of new National Monument "Sand To Snow" dedicated by the President Obama on Feb.12,2016.
We are just 5 minutes drive from Pappy's & Harriet, famous Restaurant, & Music best place in the Wild West.
Calmada Private Resort is in the middle of wilderness with lot of silence and full privacy on our own 40 acres...surrounded by 600 others private acres.
Welcome to Calmada Private Resort! Enjoy your stay...
