Welcome to the Moon Yacht.. the latest addition to the Joshua Tree Yacht Club (see my other listings the Land Yacht and Rock Yacht). The Moon Yacht is a restored and remodeled 31 foot 1977 Airstream Sovereign model Travel Trailer. It has the Bedroom in the rear of the trailer which is a more rare and more spacious configuration. Additionally the Moon Yacht has a newly built 30 ft deck for outdoor living space along with 8ftx2ft filtered Stock Tank Pool!!. NOTE- POOL stored for winter Dec 1st

The space
The Moon Yacht is a restored 1977, 31foot Airstream Travel Trailer. Update!- The Moon Yacht now has a newly built 30ft deck and shade structure, a massive upgrade! Additionally The Moon Yacht just got a newly built 8ft x 2ft. Stock Tank Pool with large filter and pump water circulating and cleaning system. This deck is beautiful and with the Stock Tank Pool is complete game-changer for those looking to stay during the summer months, these stock tank pools are the best cooling system going, flop in this thing and your summer time blues will evaporate in an instant! See the pictures. Please NOTE- POOL will be drained and stored away for the winter months, starting Dec 1st till April 1st.
What makes The Moon Yacht Airstream special, and in my view superior to most other Airstreams is that it has the "Bedroom" in the rear of the trailer. This the best and most spacious configuration that Airstream made in my opinion and for some reason the most rare. We have a queen mattress set up on a sleeping platform in the "Bedroom" of this Airstream, which we provide fresh bedding to prior to each guests arrival along with towels for 2 people.
Important notice - SUMMER ADVISORY - Its summer time in the desert and that means it is HOT during the day, around 100 on average, it does cools off some at night but it is still warm around 80 degrees, or maybe low 70's late in the night. But its a dry heat and as long as you stay in the shade and don't attempt to do too much during the day its fine, and I think the nights are actually magical, the air feels so good. In fact summer is my favorite time out here, but its not for everyone. So my point is that people should be realistic about the heat and be prepared mentally before one decides to come to the desert in the summer. Also there are a lot of bugs that come out at night in the summer, like moths and that type of thing that will be attracted to and flying around any light. The good news is there are no mosquitos or biting bugs. But if you're the sort of person that is going to freak out about moths and such flying around at night, then again coming to the desert in Summer might not be for you, so think about it before you book please, thanks.
Another important thing to note -
Given that the Airstream Moon Yacht is so much within nature, that nature is always trying to get inside the Moon Yacht (they know it's cozy in there). And although we make every effort to make sure that little friends don't get in the Airstream, its a constant battle. So if you are staying there do NOT leave food out at all. Keep your food in the fridge when you go out or go to bed. Do not leave the door of the airstream open all night, or you will likely have visitors. And I really have to make a point here as I have had to deal with several extremely unrealistic guests regarding the nature here. So know this, if you see a mouse, a rat, a bat, a bug, a snake, a tarantula, a scorpion, or any other numerous types of animals here, either outside the Airstream or even inside of it (as people leave doors open constantly..) if you see any animals that you don't like or are scared of and you then come to me demanding some kind of refund, you will NOT be refunded. By booking this listing you are accepting that this area is the home of all these creatures and it is you who is the guest in their home. So if you see a mouse or anything other creature, it is not a symptom of some sort of unsanitary conditions (like in the city), it is simply that one of the many creatures has gotten inside the Airstream one way or another, it is certainly not likely that this will happen, but it is certainly possible, and while we make every effort to seal up entry points and stop creatures from getting in, it is not possible to stop them 100%. And we are not in the business of trying to exterminate the local wildlife, indeed we want to have as little impact as possible. So if you are going to have an issue with any of the above, then this is not the listing for you! I'll say it again.. The Desert is the Home of these Animals and you are the Guest in Their home.
Now after getting that out of the way.. back to my description of the interior features.. The bathroom and Shower are configured at the side of the Airstream rather than taking up the entire rear of the trailer as is typical. As such the Bathroom space it a bit tight. Think of a Bathroom on an Airplane, only smaller.. The shower is actually quite spacious, and you can easily stand in it and it has a nice bench seat in it too, plus the water heater is great with plenty of hot water. This is an IMPORTANT thing to note though.. I am a big guy 6'1" and over 200lbs and for me, just to be perfectly honest, I have a hard time sitting on the Toilet with the bathroom door closed.. I just dont quite fit. If you are thinner and smaller than me I am sure you will not have any issue, but if you are big like me, this is something to bare in mind.. The airstream is set up for 2 guests really, and that is what it is best suited for, but it can accommodate a maximum of 4 people by making use of the forward dining table seating area. The dining table can be collapsed down to covert to a large flat sleeping area large enough for 2 people. This would be perfect for little kids. Doable for 2 extra adults but you would need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags for anyone who might want to sleep in the forward area of the Airstream. We do not allow camp fires or fires of any kind. We do allow pets so long as you keep them off the bed and the seating area. We have $20 pet fee that we ask you leave in cash upon check out for our cleaning lady.
The Moon Yacht is located on the forward portion of a 5 acre parcel that is shared with my Moonlight Mesa Hacienda listing. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/13926866?s=51
Guests at the Moon Yacht need to stay in the immediate vicinity of the Airstream, and not walk over to the house or disturb guests staying there in anyway. See pictures for orientation in relation to the House on the property. Message me for information on walks and hikes in the area if you are interested, but I will also provide this info in my list of Local Recommendations that I will send to you upon booking. Cheers!

I'm California native who grew up at the beach but fell in love with the desert. I am a 15 plus year veteran of working as a photographer in the fashion industry. My work has taken me all over the world. To such far flung places as Kenya, Iceland, and even the Galapagos Islands. But I can honestly say that Joshua Tree and this property is my favorite place of all. Being able to escape to Joshua Tree has been a source of great inspiration, spiritual renewal, and calm. I fell in love with Joshua Tree about 10 years ago, after discovering its deeper charms while shooting here. Its been an adventure discovering the ever deeper layers of the area's history, its culture, the people, and the wonderful nature and beauty of this truly unique place in the world. I invite you to come experience this place for yourself.
