The Space

The Skyranch Enter a place where the Jet-Age meets Mid-Century relaxation. The Skyranch is positioned approximately mid-field, just off a 4220ft RUNWAY... if you book the space for a Friday-Sunday visit and the weather is good - you will get to see aircraft take-off's and landings. Fly or Drive... that's right , park your plane behind a desert modern oasis! Built in 1958. Walk through custom steel gates and be transported into your own 50's world. The Skyranch is yours... This remarkable property (featured in several magazines and movies) is fronted by a metal security fence with numerous gates and features. What's your pleasure...Easy or elegant dining? You can have them both and with terrific starry eyed views all year long. Walk to the store for supplies -it's literally, 2 minutes walk door -to -door. There is a great eclectic cocktail lounge on the west end approach to the airport within an easy walking distance or stay put and watch aircraft operations from your very own "control tower like" observation chair. If you need 4 wheels? Enterprise, will pick you up. They are 1 mile away. (Joshua Tree National Park is a mere 15 minute drive from Skyranch -along with many other desert attractions). After dinner slip into a sunken bubble bath that is sure to relax in your own private master bedroom suite. A second guest bedroom complete with vintage RED carpeting awaits. The spacious living room features a fold down queen sized Murphy Bed with a view of that spectacular fireplace and runway. If an additional private bedroom is required, maybe think about adding the use of the cabana for $50 per day? I have omitted it for guests that are content with using the Murphy Bed ; and to help keep costs down for my guests. There is a Wood/ Charcoal fired BBQ-Grill on the patio with Custom SR (skyranch) BRAND to put that finishing touch on your mesquite wood seared steaks! Occupancy main house is for 6 guests. The cabana or guest-house is suited for 2 people. Hi-Speed Internet , a game room with (newly replaced red felt and return rails) Pool Table and working 1955 Jukebox with 45 rpm records! The main room record player awaits your vinyl choices from a varied collection. iPod docking station, Netflix, Roku, Pandora and a library of DVD titles, hard back books and board games are available for reading, movie or game time. This is a very rare opportunity to stay in a 1950's Desert Modern property - ON AN ACTIVE AIRPORT... For pilots, aviation buffs or architectural enthusiasts. *Please stay off the runway. *Please note- When you book Skyranch; you and your guests are alone on the property! You are met by One of Two professional concierges that work exclusively for The Skyranch. Skyranch was recently described by a guest as "Kischy in a Great way. The kind of place that makes you want to put one of those old records on the turntable, open the door to the pool and sip a cocktail. So lucky we found this place and pulled the trigger!"- Timothy Levandoski Chicago, Illinois . The nighttime skies are clear and filled with numerous satellite fly-overs as well as many monthly perfect trajectory over-flights of the (ISS)- International Space Station. PILOTS: Please supply your aircraft N- number upon rental confirmation (which will be logged upon arrival for insurance & security purposes). Yucca Valley (L22) is a public use airport in a semi-private fly- in setting. Transient parking is $5 per day for singles and $8 per day for twins. There is no fuel on the field, so be sure to plan ahead. Some of the least expensive 100LL in California is at Big Bear ICAO- (L35) just 15 air minutes away. Your airport oasis awaits! Please no additional PETS.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
