Joshua Tree Land Yacht Club bends the mind until land meets sea~a unique voyage! A retro boat bedroom, lil' tiki lounge w/record player, mini fridge, coffee pot, & good vibes. An outdoor kitchen, gas BBQ & fire-pit, & sunset~star gazing sofa! A sharky outdoor shower is a splash & a real bathroom, too! Boat dock w/"tiki" pool! As artists who live on the premises, you may see us creating across the way, boat spaces are private to you & your guest though we love social buzz our guests may bring!

The space
JTLYC boat spaces have been cultivated with privacy in mind. All the boat spaces are dedicated for you and your guest. There is private parking and entrance for your sailing adventures in the desert.

Stock tank "Tiki Pool" is available for bookings February to November! Pool is a private commodity to your space - perfect for stargazing and relaxing on a lovely desert evening or a refreshing dip on a hot summer or fall day.

Joshua Tree Land Yacht Club (JTLYC) is an unique voyage that offers gorgeous views, wide-open spaces, and plenty of privacy! The boat itself consists of a small-enclosed bedroom, blackout (with a few glimmers of light) window curtains, and a portable evaporative cooler for summer months and portable heater/20lb weighted blanket in the winter months, plus a covered boat deck w/seating for two. In addition to the boat, we offer a desert take on a "Tiki Lounge," with seating for two, mini fridge, coffee pot, and a record player that is Bluetooth capable. While there is full electricity we have implemented low voltage and solar lighting so you can truly enjoy they desert skies!

There is an outdoor style "Surfboard Shower"…it’s a bit sharky! The shower is partially enclosed, fully private, and allows for a two-three minute warm shower (then runs cool and resets in 30 minutes). There is a full functioning modern day “outhouse” with a nautical punk theme. This is a unique Airbnb in nature with a touch of modern convenience!

The private outdoor space offers a seating area around a propane fire pit, perfect for enjoying a tropical drink during your stay. There also is an old "Chevy" two-sided sofa lounge, perfect for watching the sunset or for taking an afternoon nap!

The kitchenette (parts are indoor, parts are outdoor) provides a mini fridge and freezer, sink basin, gas BBQ grill, “foodie” essentials for meal prep, basic spices, basic condiments, coffee pot, small blender, basic kitchen utensils - plates, plastic cups, stemless wine cups, large ice chest, food storage container, coffee from Joshua Tree Coffee Company, and a dining set for four.

The private “boat dock” offers our 6’ filtered, stock tank style “Tiki Pool" for two! Perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day or to enjoy the stars at night! Feel free to put the two beach chairs on the dock in the water and bask in the sun!

-Owners have an additional Airbnb on the property that has been thoughtfully created with privacy in mind. It is La Bonetto Casita - listed on the Airbnb website. We have attentively created private spaces that are unique in their own ways, with respect to all our spaces collectively.

- Owners occupy a home and trailer on this 2.5-acre property. Although the primary dwellings are not too close to JTLYC area, there are common spaces of the property where guests have the optional/occasional freedom to wander, explore and enjoy, if owners are around. Aside from that, the boat space is very private for the enjoyment of our guests staying at JTLYC.

- We have areas where we store materials for our own art projects, which, for safety reasons, we do not allow our guests to access. Please be respectful of such posted areas and do not enter or trespass. These areas are well marked.

- Although neighbors are relatively distant, sound travels far in the desert. NO PARTIES are permitted in our boat at any time during your stay.

- We ask all our guests to regard our neighbors by not being overly noisy or playing music too loudly. In compliance with county noise and nuisance regulations, guests need to be quiet after 10:00 PM. If your aim is to honor our basic requests, then our place is for you.

- You will have to travel BRIEFLY on a dirt road to get to the property. The dirt road is well maintained and easily driven by most vehicles. Follow directions provided! 💯

- Commercial Shoots: anything other than guests taking a few personal photos to share with immediate family and friends constitutes a commercial shoot. A licensing permit must be purchased, along with any county permits that are required. Any reproduction, posting, prints, advertising, or film is not allowed with out purchasing permits. No drones allowed.
