Beautifully renovated, modern and comfortable 27’ 2001 Airstream on 40 private acres. The Airstream boasts 2 air conditioners and heaters, a full kitchen and a bathroom. Step outside barefoot onto a composite deck spanning 30 feet in both directions, with incredible views of the National Park. Deck includes a large and stylish outdoor kitchen, couch for lounging, and a propane fire table for cool nights. Enjoy our brand new private modern detached bathhouse, with the option of either an indoor or outdoor shower. Occupancy limited to 2 adults. No pets.

The space
What you get:
• 27' Renovated 2001 Airstream Safari
• 40 private acres
• 1800 square feet of roof cover (including covered parking area)
• 1000 square feet of outdoor living space including kitchen, propane firetable, lounging couch and dining table
• 1/2 mile nature trail
• Custom designed and built bathhouse with indoor and outdoor showers that take full advantage of the views and natural light
• Large scenic overlook (Gazer Point) with excellent access, offering outstanding 360 degree views of the National Park, Mesa De Anguilla, the desert valley, Lajitas Mesa, and beyond.

The Airstream: The renovated Airstream is equipped with a kitchen (microwave, small oven, small cooktop and sink), two twinXL beds, a small dining table and a comfortable couch. A smart TV is provided to stream content using your own Netflix/Hulu account (but we recommend spending your time outdoors!). The Airstream has 2 air conditioners, 2 sources of heat, and offers Wifi (via DSL). Clean, modern and functional, this is the perfect place to lay your head after a day in the park, or riding the nearby bike trails.

The Deck: Over 1,000 square feet (GIANT) of covered and decked (composite decking) outdoor living space all to yourself. If you’re looking to relax in style, you’re at the right place. Big Bend StarGazer deck offers a large and stylish outdoor kitchen (cooktop/sink/propane grill/dining table/refrigerator) to enjoy meals at home, a couch for lounging, and a propane firetable for those cool nights.

Lighting: Dark sky friendly lights in the outdoor kitchen and living areas, red string lights for stargazing, and a BBQ light for grilling after the sun goes down. Our deck railing has very dim LED's mounted underneath to gently illuminate your surroundings.

The Bathhouse: Custom designed and built by the owners, this bathhouse is spacious and modern with hot indoor and hot outdoor showers. The vibrant blue tile vanity wall is reminiscent of the sea that this once was. The interior is full of light and offers carefully placed windows to enjoy the surrounding views. The outdoor shower is large, private, and frames the surrounding mountains for viewing while showering. Hot water, private entry through the bath house, and incredible views make this an experience you won't forget.

Note: While we are on septic, both of our showers are graywater that is used to feed trees and sometimes the birds will drink this water. For that reason we ask that you please use the bath products that we supply, so we keep the birds and trees happy and well!

Gazer Point: Enjoy your own jaw dropping private scenic overlook with spectacular 360 views of Big Bend National Park and beyond. Outstanding stargazing opportunities from this overlook; one of the best views in the area - all to yourself! You can hike or drive to the turnaround spot. The overlook is leveled and has large boulders placed for seating; or bring your own chair and experience the view from anywhere.

Gazer Trail: Lovely 1/2 mile meandering trail around the property; great for searching for flora and fauna. Fun morning coffee walk, evening margarita walk or just a ‘stretch out your legs’ walk. Gorgeous views and interesting terrain. Please stick to the trail as much as possible and only take pictures.

Location: Excellent location and easy access; driveway is located off of paved scenic road FM170, located close to the hustle and bustle but quiet and private.
• 2 minutes from the Lajitas Airport mountain bike trails
• 6 minutes to BBRSP mountain bike trail head
• 12 minutes to the Big Bend National Park entrance.
• 11 minutes to Study Butte gas station
• 3 minutes to Long Draw pizza
• 8 minutes to Lajitas General Store
• 5 minutes to Terlingua Ghosttown/Starlight Theatre

Special request of our guests: Please visit and enjoy/relax while leaving no trace. Please be conscientious while visiting the fragile desert ecosystem - stay on the trail and limit your water consumption in the shower and at the sink. StarGazers water supply is rainwater collection and water is very sparse in the desert. We request keeping showers to 3 minutes. Please do not remove fossils or rocks from the property - instead take a picture and leave it for the next person to discover. Thank you for respecting Big Bend and the surrounding desert, treading lightly, and practicing sustainable living during your visit.

Occupancy limited to 2 adults. No pets.

HELLO BIG BEND TRAVELERS. We joined Airbnb in 2020 but have been managing dozens of quality vacation rentals in the Big Bend Region since 2007. We would be proud to host you and will do our absolute best to earn your business and ensure your complete satisfaction. Janet founded what is now Big Bend Vacation Rentals in 2007. It all started when we sold a home we built to a couple that asked us to manage it as a vacation rental. That was the start of a new chapter in our lives. Since then, we have been honored to host tens of thousands of travelers. It brings us joy and pride to be able to manage dozens of vacation rentals for wonderful owners. Sharing their homes with others and creating opportunities for so many amazing people is a blessing we could never have imagined. Our joy comes from sharing our good fortune and helping others to experience the best that the Big Bend of southwest Texas has to offer. We have a team of professional housekeepers and a maintenance crew. All of us are dedicated to making your Big Bend vacation enjoyable and trouble-free. Let us know how we can serve you. We will do so with a smile. COVID-19 UPDATES: FULL REFUNDS for all COVID-19 related cancellations. Regardless of any restrictions or timelines on our normal cancellation policies, we have been, and will continue to, issue 100% refunds or credits for any reservation that is either cancelled or rescheduled due to concerns, closures, or travel restrictions related to COVID-19 or any future pandemic of similar proportion. We request that guests provide us as much advance notice as possible. We also request that guests consider rescheduling instead of cancelling. We are all in this together. We want our guests to make the safety of themselves, their family and community, and our family and community their highest priority when making or revising travel plans. CLEANING & DISINFECTING: We have always prided ourselves in providing clean accommodations. That commitment is now more important than ever. For the safety of our guests and staff, we are temporarily imposing a one-day vacancy between all stays. That extra time between stays is being used for extensive cleaning and disinfecting, including disinfecting all commonly touched surfaces and laundering all linens. Regardless of any actions taken by us, it is impossible to guarantee a risk-free environment. All guests assume personal responsibility for their own travel decisions and their own health.
