The Moon Yacht is a restored 1977, 31foot Airstream Travel Trailer. Update!- The Moon Yacht now has a newly built 30ft deck and shade structure, a massive upgrade! Additionally The Moon Yacht just got a newly built 8ft x 2ft. Stock Tank Pool with large filter and pump water circulating and cleaning system. This deck is beautiful and with the Stock Tank Pool is complete game-changer for those looking to stay during the summer months, these stock tank pools are the best cooling system going, flop in this thing and your summer time blues will evaporate in an instant! See the pictures. Please NOTE- POOL will be drained and stored away for the winter months, starting Dec 1st till April 1st.

Land Yacht Joshua Tree
Nice Relaxing Stay
Had a great time at the Land Yacht. Even during the summer months (stayed in early June), the Mini-Split AC did a good job at cooling down the inside. It does take a while, but certainly does make it a comfortable temperature. The site feels private, has a nice pool, and great views of the mountains.

The moon yacht was so cute. The night sky views was the best part . It was very clean, cute little air stream. Lots of desert to explore. Wildlife to watch. We couldn’t find the hammock , but that’s ok. There was enough benches to sit on. Would go again.

Land Yacht Joshua Tree
Potential but needing serious TLC
The land yacht has so much potential but is in desperate need of a good clean and repair. As we opened the door we were hit but the strong smell of decaying mouse, a smell that only mildly dissipated after three hours of having all windows open and which woke us repeatedly through the night. The land yacht seems to be aiming for a retro cool vibe but falls solidly into the ‘hasn’t been updated/maintained since the 70s’ category instead. There are countless examples of broken fittings and furniture or parts of the air stream that are solidly broken or falling apart, with some parts crudely patched up with dirty rags or sponges and others left to decay. Only one light bulb out of around 10 worked and there were multiple hanging wires. It’s hard to see why a cleaning fee is charged with trash all around and under it along with random items left from previous guests such as razors and condom wrappers, not to mention a liberal scattering of mouse droppings and the strong dead mouse smell. Whilst I understand camping/glamping in the desert naturally comes with a level of mice, insects, dirt, etc, it doesn’t justify a complete lack of cleanliness and maintenance. I had really been looking forward to our stay and I really wanted to like it but I couldn’t recommend this stay until it has a good clean and repair :(

A Yacht in the dessert.
My husband and I were looking for a better version of camping in Joshua Tree. And that’s exactly what we got. The deck was inviting, the outdoor shower was a ton of fun, especially since it was so hot out. The Yacht itself was cozy and had some character. The beds and dinning area was comfortable. It was awesome to have a bathroom and kitchen area. The only part that was a little rough was the grill. It was pretty dirty, which made sense since it’s outside. I recommend bringing some tinfoil to cook on. Other than that we had a blast.

Was such a cool place to stay in the middle of the desert. Would love to come back anytime.
