Maybe it’s the isolation amidst the grandiosity of the mountains, or maybe it’s all those bizarre-o looking Joshua Trees, but there’s something about the desert that is – let’s all say it in unison here – pure magic. While Palm Springs is popular for its cool boutique hotels and trendy restaurants, the quiet stillness of nearby Joshua Tree is one epic setting for a destination wedding that’ll have you and your guests feeling like you’re the only people left on the planet.

Whoever’s idea it was to lug a bunch of telescopes, a badass DJ, a slew of vegan tacos, and a whole party crew out to the desert in Joshua Tree, we salute you. Oh, wait. It was the brilliant minds at Moxie Bright Events, of course. Lucky for us, photographer Andria Lo was willing to give us a little insider info on this incredible desert wedding affair. Magic is certainly one word you could use to describe this one.

It's not easy to disappear. Even when you feel the city is eating you alive or the suburbs are trapping you forever, the notion of escape seems more fantasy than reality. Yet secretive soul-reviving getaways are sprinkled throughout the country, ones that exist without resort-like prices or throngs of people noisily attempting the same. Most importantly, there’s a particularly dreamy Texan vacationland that looks like the adult getaway you imagined existed somewhere as a kid.

What if you could purchase a parcel of land in paradise and build your dream home on it? Surely you would. Of course you would. Anybody would. It’s eternal, universal daydream. Anyone from any country has hoped to do exactly that. So it’s surreal to find a couple who actually did it—and is now offering the place up to travelers.

This week’s #BirthdayBucketList is Hideout, the (properly named) eco-friendly, off-the-grid escape in Bali, where owners Ali and Jarmil checked a gigantic item off their bucket lists. Building their serene fantasy abode beneath a volcano and amid rice fields was a life-changing process for them. They had high hopes and, after several months of construction, their finished bamboo bungalow still managed to blow them away. They expect Hideout will do the same to its spirited guests.

Surrounded by jungle and overlooking a tranquil river, Hideout was made to welcome adventurers in search of total peace. Given that Hideout’s most frequent guest is the gentle breeze, it’s hard not to see how a visitor wouldn’t cure any and every stress. Stunned by such an exotic slice of heaven, our crew at the Venue Report had to ask Ali and Jarmil about the inspiration, the building process, and what they hope others can achieve at their dream home.

The Bush meets Lake St Clair
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

The story of Pumphouse Point starts loooooooong ago (with maybe even more Os). In fact, according to the staff, the real story starts 20,000 years ago, when Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair, was born on the island of Tasmania. That’s how much of a feature the scenery is for the lakeside hotel.
