About this listing
Perched on a hilltop with a magnificent 360 degree vista of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina, Santa Barbara Island and the Santa Monica Mountains, spend the evening watching the sunset over Boney Mountain as it fades to black. The stars come out by the millions- and you watch for comets and satellites passing overhead from the comfy Adirondack chairs.
You retire to the comfortable restored interior of 'THE ALUMILODGE'- a 1957 AIRSTREAM 22 ft. FLYING CLOUD, and plug your iPod into the Bose Acoustimas sound system while opening a chilled bottle of local area wine you brought from the refrigerator. The dinette is set for a romantic dinner which you prepare in the onboard galley and gas stove. After another look at the Milky Way, you retire to the Queen size rear bed with quality linens and feather duvet- the fresh Pacific breeze lulling you to sleep in the silence broken only by the occasional owl 'hoot' or coyote howl in the distance. You awake to experience the sunrise with our French coffee press and another day in a paradise you can't imagine is so close, yet so far from Los Angeles.
The area also offers vineyard tours, wine tasting rooms, excellent restaurants, hiking/ biking the Backbone Trail, trail rides and even an 18 hole golf course all within minutes.
Pool (seasonally) and internet hot spot available to guests.

Our stay in the airstream was the highlight of our honeymoon. The views were incredible and breathtaking. It was the most relaxing night of my life. I loved their pet goats, horses, and dogs as they were all so sweet and friendly. The weather was gorgeous and the airstream was so cozy. I wish we could have stayed for longer than one night as it was so serene. Thanks again for making our honeymoon so memorable!
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The views are amazing. Murray, our host, was welcoming and and made us feel at home. The airstream had everything we needed.
Beautiful setting at the top of a very private knoll up a long winding road...quite magical if you've never visited the Malibu hills. It was especially fun to be greeted by the welcoming committee...the 4 goats posed at the entry where we parked!
This was the MOST amazing experience ever! The site was so welcoming and had everything we could have ever needed! The view was outstanding and we will most certainly be back!!! I highly recommend this to anyone!
Loved this airstream! Perfect for stargazing. We will be back soon to enjoy the malibu mountains.
Murray and Kay's place is amazing. Super easy to find, super remote, super comfortable. Definitely prepare going off the grid. The shower and toilet are small, but what else do you expect from a vintage Airstream! The road up to the Airstream was indeed winding and dirty, but we made it up okay in a mustang convertible. And Murray was easily accessible during our stay. Overall...quaint, private, relaxing, and memorable. Loved it.
Murray was so wonderful, and this was a perfect way to spend our mini-honeymoon! I asked him to keep the stay a surprise until we got to the top of the hill to see the Airstream (because it was a surprise to my husband), and he was happy to do so. We loved playing scrabble at night, as well as looking at the stars! The horses blocked our way up to the Airstream one evening and it was absolutely hilarious.

About the Host, Murray & Kay
My wife and I are Christian, semi-retired film industry people who thrive on adventure and meeting interesting people. Over the past 13 years I've restored several vintage Airstream trailers and consider them the ultimate in camping comfort. One of my restorations now actually resides in Japan!
We used to love to travel and camp in our 1957 'FLYING CLOUD' AIRSTREAM but now enjoy allowing others to share the experience without the hassle of driving, towing and fighting for a spot in a crowded and noisy campground. We live on a 20+ acre ranch property (with some overly friendly goats, dogs and horses) in the Santa Monica Mountains- surrounded by thousands of acres of open space and direct access to the famous Backbone Trail, which is renowned for hiking, horseback and mountain bike riding. We are also only 6 miles from the glorious beaches of Malibu. Our hilltop location is the perfect deluxe camping experience, with ocean views, and base to enjoy this unique mountain range and Mediterranean climate which occurs in only 6 places in the world.
