I stumbled upon this personal Airstream oasis of a nature-loving Malibu designer on Airbnb. It was redesigned into a studio with three sliding glass panels that open onto a deck with incredible views of the Pacific ocean and surrounding mountains.
Just a short drive away from L.A., it’s not luxury, but it ain’t cheap either, at $650 a night. But you could wake up above the clouds like you are the only two people on the planet. I’m assuming two, as this joint was built for romance. But as the listing says,
“There’s a queen sized bed and another pull out sofa that can fit another person – bring your own sleeping bag for the 3rd wheel…”
It also gives a few other amusing warnings and caveats;
“PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS LISTING if you are afraid of nature or its creatures. Understand you are surrounded by thousands of acres completely untouched nature. You are very likely to hear (or see) coyotes, owls, seals, roadrunners and bunnies. There is a bobcat in the area but these are usually very skittish. There are a mice in the Santa Monica mountains. About once a month, a guest will complain that they saw a mouse. Said mouse might come into the Airstream if food is left outside the fridge. We do not offer refunds if a mouse comes into the airstream but we do have 4 traps around the airstream so the odds are heavily stacked against the mice.
In three years we have yet to ever see a rattle snake near the airstream so the area is definitely not prone to them.
If you are fearful of dirt roads, care immensely about your sports car, or are afraid of cliffs, skip this booking. For all other adventurers, I make it up with my Prius without bottoming out no problem so don’t fear.”
