JOSHUA TREE, CALIFORNIA - A WEEKEND GET AWAY IN AN AIRSTREAM
Have you always wanted to explore California? If so, here is a great tip from me (Annabell). Just before New Years Eve, my Boyfriend and I flew out to Los Angeles. He had planned a little surprise trip for us, so I had no idea where we were going. I honestly had a little idea but he denied any of my questions. But when we got closer to the actual location, I had an idea.
He had booked us a vintage airstream at the Joshua Tree desert, just about 2,5 hours drive from Los Angeles. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend the last few days of 2017 at. Oh my, we both fell in love with this gorgeous place straight away. What an amazing idea to rent out 3 different renovated and well designed airstreams on a land at Joshua Tree in California!
You basically sleep and rest in the airstream, have a private patio with hammocks and sun beds and share the bathroom/outdoor shower as well as the kitchen and communal space with other desert wanderer. Oh have I mentioned that there is also a hot tub? :)
Its so well designed, I totally fell in love with the eye for detail in the airstreams as well as in the communal areas. This air bnb space is fairly new, I think the 3 owners have been running it for about 8 months. If you have any questions or problems then there is a lovely care taker on the side. We had to ask him for help on our first morning, as the lock on the airstreams door was broken and we the only way to get out or inside was to climb through a tiny window ;) haha what an experience that was.
The locations is just breathtaking and we ended up having some little photo sessions during our 2 day stay..see below :). I hope you like this tip and may have found some California trip inspiration.
You can book the airstreams on air bnb here.
"Our 1964 vintage Airstream will transport you back to another era when the Beatles were stars and cell phones were sci-fi dreams. Open skies, mountain views and moon gazing awaits you on this peaceful 5 acres of desert land.
Come loose yourself among the wild Joshua Trees."
"This sleeping space features hand made decor and thrift found treasures- blending what we love from the past with the present."
There are lots of Hammocks around, you will have at least 2 on the patio of your airstream and there also many more on the property.
THE CLUB HOUSE - COMMUNAL AREA
All guests will have access to the lovely decorated and super cosy communal space in The Clubhouse. This is where you can use the restroom/shower, use the indoor kitchen space for some coffee/tea and cook, listen to some records and just relax.
There is also a bigger outdoor kitchen with a BBQ, an outdoor shower (for the hot months in the desert) a hot tub, a beautiful huge wooden communal table and fireplace.
RECORD PLAYER AND TAPE PLAYER
What else do you need, when you get a great selection of vintage record and tape players which are also connected to some speakers outside? Such a great idea! Loving all those touches to make your stay unforgettable.
THE CUTE BUT DEAF GINGER CAT
SOUND OF SILENCE
ROMANCE AT NIGHT
I find those fairy lights just absolutely romantic which are on the patio of each airstream. Together with the moonlight they make the location even more magical by night.
On the way back to Los Angeles we passed this giant T-Rex and just had to stop to take some silly pics. ;)
I just wanted to add that I'm super grateful that I can travel and explore so much of this beautiful earth. I can't wait to see what 2018 will bring for me and THE 4 OF US! But one thing is for sure already ;) we made it into the UK BLOG AWARDS Finals, thanks to all of your votes :)! Thank you and a happy new year to you all!! xx Annabell
