Calefaction Culture: Living Your Hottest Life

The perfect getaway in the Coachella Valley sun is waiting for you at Calefaction Culture, a relaxing desert acreage between Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park. Our little piece of paradise offers beautiful views of both the San Jacinto and San Gorgonio mountains, a firepit under the stars (s’mores included), 24/7 access to the Coffee Bar next to a trickling waterfall and pond, hammocks, yoga areas, outdoor games, and friendly dogs and chickens to welcome you to your vacation. Less than a mile away are world-class but affordable mineral spas, or drive a short fifteen minutes to vibrant downtown Palm Springs for shopping and sightseeing. The adventurer in you can be satisfied with nature walks, hiking, and rock climbing in nearby Joshua Tree National Park.

Experience the Desert Hot Springs area’s “energy vortex” of mineral springs, the San Andreas fault line, and windmills generating renewable energy. Be sure to keep your own energy renewed in the desert heat with evaporative coolers blowing refreshingly cool, moist air inside each tent and cold water provided in outdoor areas. In the winter months, we provide electric blankets for a cozy, comfortable sleep!  A full bath (with complete hot/cold plumbing) is provided with easy access from the tents.

We hope to see you soon at Calefaction Culture - the hottest spot in Southern California!

A great spot near local hot springs, and for vegan travelers, there was even a vegan restaurant nearby!

The pets were friendly and cute 😊 Kudos to the hosts for also letting me know of the best ways to get the most out of my stay there by making recommendations.

I enjoyed the quiet environment, the chickens weren't a nuisance whatsoever.

We will be back again soon for a longer stay! We did a one day trip to desert hot springs since Joshua tree was kinda shut down (thanks government). Diana was an amazing host, the set up was so confortable, and we really enjoyed our time.

We had a relaxing experience while at Calefaction Culture with Diana and Mat. They were more than gracious and kind. I specifically enjoyed the comfort, the chicken crossing, the many seating areas, the views, and the overall convenience of the location. There is also a nice opportunity to connect with others. It is private but there is room for meeting other like minded folk, including Matt and Diana. Painting the wall highlighting community and diversity was icing!

This place was absolutely wonderful!! The hosts were very nice and welcoming as were the other guests. The site itself was so beautiful, just as their pictures portray. I can tell that these hosts are making sure that the campers have the most safe and fun stay possible, and offered so many resources for us for no extra charge! (Firewood, shower, bathrooms, grill, coffee, clean laundry for bedding/towels, toiletries, and many other luxuries). Absolutely 10/10 experience! ❤️

Our stay at Backyard Bohemia was a dream come true! Our hosts were so accommodating and gave really good recommendations and information about the surrounding area. The directions to the property were clear and we had no problems getting to it. When we arrived to Backyard Bohemia we were immediately impressed. The view of the San Jacinto and San Gorgonio mountains is absolutely breathtaking and perfect for sunrise and sunset! The yurt was big and had two air beds that were very comfortable and can easily accommodate five people or more. There is so much to do on the property like: mini golf, painting, and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit under a starry night sky. Backyard Bohemia is a glampers dream and a campers luxury! We highly recommend staying at this property!

The camp site was more amzing than I expected because the photos were too good! But it was better than the photo. Every place was super clean and cute especially their dogs, Ginger and Jessi. Diana provided everything that we needed even ear plugs for the night. I thought I won’t be using ear plugs but the night that we stayed was extremely windy like a storm came and I had to use it because it was too noisy in the tent. Other than that I highly recommend Diana’s place.

Super hospitable and accommodating host and an eclectic yurt with comfortable beds and cozy eclectic blankets + friendly dogs and chickens = awesome experience!

During our stay, it was either super rainy or windy, but the yurt withstood both with no problem. It did get quite noisy when it was windy, but the host offers you earplugs too!

My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay!
