The space
The Desert Yacht Club experience is a fusion of Italian style in a rustic ol’ western setting, with art installations interwoven with the desert landscape, which imbue the venue with its unique atmosphere. At night you can feel bathed under starlight and moonlight, while safely wandering through beautifully solar lit pathways.
Please note: as comfortable as we can make the place , you are still camping in the desert wilderness in an off-grid facility; if you're seeking for air conditioning, cable tv or hotel kind of comfort this may not be your best choice.

The desert yacht club is an art production center featured in several media such as movies, music video, music album, that open his doors to guests when the facility is available for leisure stay. It is ideal for those who seek inspiration and creativity in a calm and secluded environment. We welcome a community of creative people to develop projects and idea that find in the desert the essence of it. Guests who come aboard to the Desert Yacht Club will take part to an experience rather than just have a vacation stay and will be able to get in touch with the inner spring of inspiration that leads to the production of all that was created here so far.
Please check with host about fares for productions in case you plan to come for shooting pictures or video contents. Fares for stay and for productions are different.
We also want to maintain a friendly and respectful relationship with our neighbors and so we request that the volume of music will be turned down at a level of no disturbance after 10pm. Thanks

During your stay
Guests meet the owner or caretaker at check in and in the evening after sunset. The crew lives in the property so one of us is always available for any info or help needed. Check in in procedures happen between 2-6 pm and it requires the presence of all guests on the campsite in order to give everyone the info about safety and off grid features. In case the guests of your party will not arrive all at same time please make sure to provide us details of which camp will accommodate each guest in order to assist them.
If you’re planning a special kind of event please plan a scout visit to come see the campground and meet the crew in person : brainstorming about your vision will help figuring out logistics and clarify all the options available. Scout tours usually hosted on Sunday afternoon or Mondays when camp is available :)
