The Land Yacht is a classic 31 foot Airstream "Land Yacht" travel trailer, that has been converted into a fully functional Glamping unit. The Land Yacht has its own private deck built alongside it, with a super refreshing stock tank pool (not a hot tub, not heated) and is situated at the base of large boulder formations. We are right on the boundary of the National Park with stunning views. If your dates aren't available here, check out our new Moon Yacht Airstream listing

The space
The Land Yacht is a 31 foot Classic Airstream "Land Yacht" trailer that has been converted into a fully functional glamping unit. Please read my full listing description before booking, its required, thanks.
NOTE - The Stock Tank Pool is not a hot tub, it is not heated, and in the winter the water is freezing cold, so as such we drain, and store it away for the winter, From Dec. 1st to April 1st.
Another important thing to NOTE -
Given that the Airstream Land Yacht is so much within nature, that nature is always trying to get inside the Land 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 that you are scared of and you then come to me demanding some kind of refund, you will NOT be refunded. I say again, 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 it might be in the city), it is simply that one of the many creatures has gotten inside the Airstream one way or another, it is 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. So be sure that you have considered this before booking.
There's alot of copy-cat Airstream setups out here nowadays, this was one of the first actually. And you don't have to share your bathroom, shower, or kitchen with anyone else here. The Land Yacht is in one of the most spectacular and unique locations in all of Joshua Tree, on the south-side of the Hwy, up on a hill, at the edge of the National Park, with stunning surroundings and views. It feels extremely remote, yet the highway is only a couple of minutes drive down the hill and Joshua Tree's downtown center is just another 10 minutes west, and the main National Park entrance just another 10 minutes from there.
The Land Yacht has a large deck and wrap around seating area built alongside it, for true indoor/outdoor living experience, and a super refreshing large stock tank pool (April 1st-Dec. 1st)

The Airstream itself has a front sleeping area with a Queen Bed, full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, and microwave. There is a dining area in the middle along with a single Bunk Bed. The dining area also can convert into an additional bunk bed. The Land Yacht has a Mini Split AC unit (it can do both cooling and heating that will cool the Airstream off nicely after about 20 min or so. (from May till September the temperatures here range from the 80's to the low 100's, so take that into account, and please always try to use the AC as sparingly as possible) Heating in the LY during the winter is provided by the same unit that will heat the space up fairly well after about 20 min or so. Again, use sparingly as possible. There is a hot water shower inside the Airstream, along with the private bathroom located at the interior rear of the Airstream.
The Land Yacht is best suited for the more adventurous traveller, and those seeking something out of the ordinary. Please be realistic and give a moment's thought about whether you are that sort of person and will be happy staying in a vintage Airstream travel trailer in the middle of the Mojave Desert, with all that that entails.
While this is not camping, it is not like being in hotel or a house either. Call it Glamping, or Airstreaming, or whatever you like. But the point is, it's basically a higher end camping experience, and prospective guests should be sure that that kind of experience is the right fit for them. If all that sound fun to you, then great! You will love it here! Please just plan accordingly, its a good idea to bring a flashlight just to have, and maybe bring an extra blanket or two along for your stay to assure maximum coziness, in particular if you are going to be more than the 2 people that the queen bed accommodates.
The Land Yacht is really set up for 2 guests, a couple ideally, or a couple with little kids. 4 adults in the Airstream is doable, but it is definitely a full house, and is not so recommended, unless you are happy to be at close quarters with your fellow travellers. We provide bedding for the main Queen bed, make a note of that please, as anyone planning to sleep on either of the extra single bunk beds should plan on bringing a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow of their own.
The large Stock Tank Pool on the deck, has a powerful filter and pump built into it to keep the water clean and filtered. It also will creates a nice cascading water sound when you turn it on that is pretty soothing. Take a dunk in between sun and drinks or soak and refresh after a long hike in the Park during hotter weather. Please note, the pool will be drained and put away for the winter starting Dec 1st until April 1st, as it gets too cold to use it during the winter time here.
Also on this property as you first enter it, is the Time Machine house, which I also listed on Airbnb.

The house is on the front portion of the property and is a fair distance away from the Land Yacht and guests at either space will retain their privacy. Situated further up at the back corner of the property, is the site of the Land Yacht's twin sister, the Airstream Rock Yacht that could be booked on its own or in combination with the LY for larger groups.

To the east is a vast expanse of open desert and boulder formations, and mountains. Immediately to the south is the National Park boundary. To the North are vast open views of the Sunfair dry lake and the mesas beyond. To the west are view of the mountains leading up to Big Bear. There are a total of 3 neighboring houses, only one of which is occupied full-time. They are all a fair distance away from where the Land Yacht is situated. I mention this only because I have noticed that a few guests were surprised that there was anything else at all in the area, instead thinking that it was completely isolated in the middle of nothing. To be clear that is not the case, but it is extremely private(probably even more so than one of the camp sites in the park) and set against spectacular nature.
Note Regarding Photo Shoots - We do alot of film and photo production here, so.. If you are a Professional/Commercial photo or film shoot attempting to book this property, I do not accept shoot booking via Airbnb unless directly agreed to in writing by me, and industry standard location fee rates will apply. You can message me directly and I will negotiate a fair rate based on what you are shooting and how big your crew is going to be, and how much equipment, etc, etc. But do not attempt to bring a photo shoot production/or crew in here secretly, without my expressed permission. You will be found out, you will be stopped, and you will be kicked out immediately, with the forfeit of your booking. So please don't try it. Additionally Drones are NOT permitted at all. Please do not fly your drone here. Thank you.
The Land Yacht is a really unique experience, with a fantastic setting, and a great vibe. At night it feels a little like you are in some kinda spaceship surrounded by boulders and stars. It's a great spot to base your Joshua Tree adventure from.

Where you’ll be

Joshua Tree, California, United States

This neighborhood of Panorama heights is one of the best areas to be in all of Joshua Tree, and Joshua Tree in general is a really amazing and special place, some call it a vortex spot. If you believe that there are special unique places in the world with an extra special something then you know what that means, if you don't believe in that kinda stuff then you might after visiting! When you book, along with check in instructions; you will be sent my list of local suggestion of great things to see and do in Joshua Tree and the surrounding area. If you are looking at this page you probably already know how amazing and unique Joshua Tree is if you have ever been before.. If you have not been before, then what you've heard is true, it really is that special of place and more, you gotta experience "The Tree", and the LAND YACHT is a great place to do that from !!

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.
