Vacation isn’t only a time we gather together with some folks and go visit some random (or not) place. It’s a time when we want to experience something new and special, something that we would never think we’re going to experience. There are many unique things to do in Yucca Valley. Have you ever thought you could live for a couple of days in a rusty cabin in the middle of the desert? Relax in the hot tub, surrounded by rocks? Or maybe sleep in a retro trailer? Check out our list of the best Airbnbs in Yucca Valley, California to find those most special ones!
In the middle of a real desert, you’ll be driving on a windy, dirt road, away from civilisation to get to this outstanding homestead. If you ever wanted to try glamping but wasn’t sure if it’s for you, Boulder’s Hideaway is a perfect place to try something similar, but yet not so adventurous. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have fun there! The tiny, comfy cabin and the outdoor 0.5 of a bathroom gives you a little taste of adventure and desert life. The cabin has two beds and can host 4 people, so grab your friends and go try it out!

Maybe you want to experience a little bit of another culture and want your accommodation to take you thousands of miles to Central Asia, to countries like Mongolia or Uzbekistan. The Nomad is an amazing yurt that can give you a taste of the nomad’s life. Though the Tuft and Needle bed will make that experience extremely comfortable. The yurt is equipped with a cooler to store your food and drinks, and there is also a private patio with a fire pit and chairs. The kitchen and bathrooms are shared.

The only cabin right next to Joshua Tree National Park is a perfect place for those who are looking for an escape from strangers and who want to spend some time with their friends or families. That pretty brick cabin can host up to 5 people (4 more comfortably) and is also pet friendly. The cabin has a kitchen and a bathroom with a tub, a swing and a nice front porch.

That cute, colorful trailer looks like a scene from 70’s movies and gives an amazing opportunity for a nice, romantic trip for two. There is also a Star Deck Bed on the property, that you can hang out on with the fire burning right next to it, watch the stars, or even sleep under the sky if the night is nice! There is an original trailer kitchen here and a compost toilet.

What about a little Indian vacation in the desert and sleeping in a real tipi? Sounds like fun to me! The tipi is decorated in a Native American style, is equipped with a bed for two and has a cooler. There’s also a private outdoor area to sit outside and enjoy the desert! A kitchen and a bathroom are shared with 5 other tipis and trailers.

Of course, not everybody is into primitive life; sharing bathrooms, cold water in the shower, etc. Some of us want to have some luxury even while spending time in the desert. There’s no better place for that than Dream Catcher Ranch. The ranch is located in the nice shelter of the rocks, that provide a little bit of shadow on hot days. There’s also a lagoon pool among the rocks and a jacuzzi, to enjoy under the stars. It’s also a great picture opportunity with some rusty old vehicles on the property. Even though it’s a private place, it’s only 5 minutes away from the town!

Here, the Desert Yacht Club comes again with their iconic Spartan Airstream Trailer from the 50s, but this time, in comparison to the other two trailers on the list, you can enjoy it with your friends or with children! The trailer features one big bed and two sofas (one of them transforming into a two person bed) and it also has a private bathroom!

The last and the fanciest on our list is Rock Reach House. It’s one of the best Yucca Valley homes for rent. This pretty, modern, steel cabin was published in the April 2010 issue of Dwell Magazine. Surrounded by great boulders and ancient junipers the house makes a desert experience something a little bit different. It also has a lot to offer within it, like a jacuzzi, an indoor and outdoor shower, a fire pit, grill, washer, dryer and much more.
