The space
The Desert Yacht Club experience is an invitation to immerse yourself in the desert in order to get back in touch with nature seeking deep connection with your inner self. We do strive to be respectful of the environment and the neighborhood and so we invite our guests to act accordingly during their stay: please be mindful with single use/plastic items and keep in mind that in the desert the wind is strong and unexpected.
Keep in mind that as comfortable as we can make the place , you are still staying in the desert wilderness in an off-grid art facility; if you're seeking 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 ideas that find their essence in the desert. 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.
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 facility manager at check in and in the evening at sunset. The crew lives on the property so one of us is always available for any info or help needed. Check-in procedures happen between 2-6 pm and it requires the presence of all guests at the facility in order to give everyone the info about safety and off-grid features.

Maximum number of vehicles parked at our venue is 12: after 8 pm of check-in date, extra vehicles on premise will have to be removed to our overflow parking lot, otherwise guests will be charged extra parking fee ($40 per vehicle). Please park only in designated areas.

If you’re planning a special kind of event please plan a scout visit to come see our space and meet the crew in person. Brainstorming about your vision will help figuring out logistics and clarify all the options available. Scout tours are usually hosted on Sunday afternoon or Mondays, subject to availability :)
