"Tranquility Base" is a glamping (glamorous camping) experience of a lifetime! Come rest and unwind in this remote, completely off the grid, fabulous RV that’s run on sunshine and being playfully restored to resemble a small spaceship.
WE DO offer a HEATER for guests to use during winter rentals. Although the listing address says Yucca Valley, we are truly in Joshua Tree, just at the state line. Please read through the entire listing description, as our rental is not for everyone.
The RV is a great midpoint between 'not being in a tent' and 'not being in a hotel'. It's a happy medium... camping with perks! Glamping!
Your stay is a chance to be on the front lines of Joshua Tree's beauty, wild life and solitude with a few amenities for comfort and ease.
The 5 acre property which is yours to explore, has over 30 mature Joshua Trees and is one of the quietest places you’ll ever experience. Those wishing to “get away from it all” for some real rest and relaxation, will find it most appealing. This is a place you can hear the wind blow and the flapping of crow's wings above.
Guests are welcome to do the daily bird feeding (seed provided), which brings a host quail, desert wren, rabbits, chipmunks and road runners to the area around the RV. A great way to get up close to the desert's animals. We offer binoculars, too.
It’s a photographer's dream or perfect for the artist, writer or person looking for quiet inspiration, alone time and reflection. It's also super family friendly (kids +pets) with its 'critter' proof fence surrounding the patio, allowing your kids or pets to play safely, while you lounge inside the RV.
Coyotes may howl in the distance, but do not won't come around or hurt you, plus they are a very important part our desert's ECO system.
Run completely on solar energy, you can also use the RV's stove-top for cooking and an outside fire pit, with grill top for BBQing. RV also has a working refrigerator and freezer.
The RV sleeps 4 adults/2 kids inside: one double bed for 2 and other separate areas: a sleeping loft above cabin for 2 and the eating booth table collapses down for another sleeping area or 'day bed' perfect for small children or as a lounge area...
There is an extra TENT we offer upon request, that can be used for 2 extra guests or as an extra space outside. Great for kids! Or a man cave!
Please note there is NO running water in the RV, however WATER IS PROVIDED via a solar shower for bathing and water stations in the bathroom and kitchen area for washing dishes and brushing teeth. 10 gallons total. Drinking water, too.
There will be some warm oatmeal and snacks on site for you, including 5 gallons of drinking water. There are plates and cups, utensils, pots, pans, using paper plates can be easier at times, since there is no running water.
We do have a pour over coffee pot that makes 8 cups and keeps coffee warm in a carafe, but we don't provide the coffee. If you're a coffee drinker, please bring your own ground coffee or there is multitude of coffee places in town, even a Starbucks. We do offer instant coffee, a selection of teas, including green tea and hot cocoa.
Full access to all amenities and areas including: Sealed critter-proof patio (perfect for small kids/animals to play safely) with shade structure, outdoor dining area, 2 camping chairs, plenty of parking, five acres of private land with direct access to hundreds of acres of mountains for HIKING right off the property!
We do generate enough power to charge your phones, laptops, iPads, gaming devices, etc... so, if you choose to bring those, you are welcome to charge them with solar power :)
Feel free to collect from the plenitude of dry wood on the property to make a fire, but please don't cut down any of the plants or trees, there is plenty to collect from the ground.
***One special perk: You can hike, find and gather snowy quartz from a nearby crystal mine, directly north of our property, that produces, milky white, yin crystals.
The Joshua Tree National Park, which you can see from the property is only 8 minutes away! Also, ask us about the 'locals only' secret entrance into the park...+ More
