Bought this property in 1989, and had the house of our dreams built on it. It is bounded on two sides by the Elkhorn Slough Bird Sanctuary, which give terrific views all the way to Monterey Bay. The birds wake you up in the morning, and in the spring the tree frogs lull you asleep.
We are well situated in the middle of Monterey Bay. 20-25 minutes to either Santa Cruz or Monterey. Locally in Moss Landing are good restaurants and a great beach to walk till you drop.
Most important is the Elkhorn Slough. Part of the marine sanctuary it offers an unrivaled view of sea otters in their natural environment. It is also a birders paradise. Take one of the enclosed charter boats or rent a kayak, and see for yourself.
The Trailer, its self is a 2015 airstream flying cloud. We provide bedding only for the main bed, bring a sleeping bag for anyone not sleeping in main bet. Only utensils, dishes and a tea kettle are provided. Also recommend bringing drinking water.
Dogs are charged as if they are extra human. Last but not least, we have two dogs, a Bull Terrier mix and Jack Russell, who roam the yard freely. Both are well socialized and avoid conflict with other dogs.

The vibe at Flying Cloud

The Cloud Trailer is a beautiful, brand new Airstream that has lots of creature comforts to enjoy. Nestled behind a few large trees and a detached garage, there's plenty of privacy. The surrounding area is peaceful and has a view of Monterey Bay. Bring your own cooking supplies to take advantage of the full kitchen (oven, stove, fridge, etc!). Highly recommend staying at this cozy airstream with great access to the coast!
The Cloud Trailer is absolutely stunning! It's a brand new trailer that is nestled between gorgeous greenery and a detached garage which does a great job of separating it from Kyle's main property.
The tailer is stocked with linens and all major amenities (Stove, Oven, Shower, Toilet, Running Water, etc.) Be sure to bring your own cooking equipment, toiletry, and clean up supplies as you would any camping trip (and pack it out after your stay!)
This property is a great home base to explore nearby Salinas, Monterey, and Santa Cruz.
The Cloud Trailer was a wonderful place for us to stop for the night after a long day in Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea. I would highly recommend for a small group or couple.
highs: it is close to Monterey area-not a bad drive, very accommodating host, the fire pit is a huge perk, the airstream is updated and comfortable, the host has two very friendly dogs!, lots of wildlife noises at night (bats, owls, frogs), there's a tv with a working DVD player, a bottle of wine to optionally buy in the fridge
lows: water in the trailer tasted terrible as it had been sitting in the tank for a long time, the mattress is REALLY soft (my back hurt the next morning), the airstream doesn't have any platterware, cookware, or silverware in its kitchenette
This was a fabulous experience, and the camper was adorable. My friends and I planned a last minute trip to Monterey and this gave us all the necessities and then some -- Kyle provided us with fire starter/fire pit to roast marshmallows! Not to mention the dogs are great. Would recommend this.
Thanks for a wonderful stay! The trailer was great - clean, pretty much brand new, and full of amenities. Kyle was a kind and gracious host. He even went out of his way to share coffee and a pour over with us. Thank you for a lovely experience!
The Cloud Trailer was wonderful! I've always wanted to stay in an Airstream and Kyle's adorable trailer did not disappoint. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay-kitchen, bathroom, shower, hot water (make sure to turn the heater on a few minutes before you want to shower!), basic kitchen supplies, sheets, towels, and a super comfortable bed.
Everything was immaculate, and Kyle and his wife were very welcoming and flexible with my late arrival and last minute boyfriend and dog addition. Kyle, his wife, and two dogs were incredibly sweet and welcoming, and the property was expansive and very quiet. We can't wait to return!
