Joshua Tree Acres Review
Roadtripping around in a baby blue Volkswagen RV or an airstream has always been on the top of my bucketlist so when I found this unique airstream on AirBnB, I knew we had to book it for our two-day getaway to Joshua Tree.
Joshua Tree Acres is a desert oasis featuring unique and distinct vintage airstreams to stay in and a communal clubhouse perfect for hanging out and meeting new travellers. There are beautiful string lights hung all around the property and the interiors are styled to vintage perfection - it’ll feel like you’re being transported back to another era. Relax in your own private oasis and enjoy the open skies, mountain views and moon & star gazing that await.
There are three Airstreams available, each offering something different but equally amazing:
- Piece of the Sky 1975 Airstream: The 1975 Airstream has the largest and most open interior with an L shaped seating area and the comfiest king sized bed I’ve never slept in - it pretty much felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. The patio area features seating for two accompanied by Mexican Zapotec woven blankets and two sitting hammocks!
- Sound of Silence 1964 Airstream: The 1964 Airstream has the nicest patio with two Joshua trees on either side and two lying hammocks. This Airstream is slightly smaller with a two seater couch and a king sized bed.
- We didn’t have a chance to see the third Airstream as it’s currently undergoing some upgrades!
We had originally booked the 1964 Airstream but had hoped to book the 1975 Airstream because of the bigger interior. We were lucky that no one had booked the 1975 Airstream and we were able to switch over!
Both Airstreams have functioning electricity, air conditioning, heater but no running water or restroom or cooking allowed; however, the communal space has all of the the above!
The Clubhouse - The Communal Space
The clubhouse has a lounging area, kitchen, outdoor BBQ, dining space and restroom with a shower. The clubhouse has a rustic vibe, adorned with decor from all over the world such as the brightly coloured Moroccan pillow shams. sheepskin rugs, unique reclaimed wood furniture pieces and succulent plants. Relax and recharge while listening to their vinyl and cassettes collection on the vintage stereo.
This communal area is a perfect space to gather and meet other desert wanderers staying here. We spent most of our time here listening to music, enjoying wine and cheese and reading.
The kitchen is well equipped and there is an outdoor grill available to use.The large outdoor dining area features a long ponderosa pine communal table (my dream reclaimed wood dining table), outdoor fireplace and plenty of lounge chairs.
Other Communal Spaces
Enjoy the other cool communal spaces available.
- Soak and stargaze in the outdoor hot tub.
- Recharge after a hot day with the outdoor solar shower under brightly lit stars
- Lounge in the communal hammocks while enjoying a glass (or a couple) of wine
Although we did not meet Andrew, Joseph and Justine, they were incredible hosts! They were incredibly responsive and provided us timely instructions for getting to the property and recommendations of what to do in the nearby towns of Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley prior to our arrival.
Jeff, the property manager, was incredible helpful during our stay, assisting with the outdoor grill and showing us the property desert tortoises.
This was the most unique AirBnB I’ve ever stayed at and I can’t say enough good things about our stay here! The attention to detail is amazing - it’s well decorated, clean, comfortable and provides everything you need (& more!) for a little desert getaway. The property is incredibly secluded while still being conveniently close to Joshua Tree National Park (20 minute drive), making it a perfect base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and nearby towns. During the scorching hot afternoons, cool off by hanging out on the property and rejuvenating in this magical space.
Overall, it was the perfect little getaway and I would recommended anyone wanting to visit Joshua Tree to stay at this vintage airstream AirBnB (even anyone thinking of a day trip out of Los Angeles!). You won’t find a more unique experience anywhere else.
