We ask that our guests share the property with each other and respect the common space. We want you to make yourself at home!
We love meeting guests, but we let our guests have plenty of space. We want to make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible. We are available to answer any questions and point you to nearby attractions/restaurants/etc. We will be around if you need us. Otherwise, we'll leave you to enjoying the desert.

Best place full of love.. destress.. calm your soul and recharge your batteries!
This is the cutest spot! 10/10 recommend
Five stars all the way! Such a cool location plus the pool and the hot tub make it a real winner. My husband and I like Joshua Tree for the rock climbing and the trail running. Greg’s place is about 20 min drive from the park. We felt like we had a lot of privacy and having a massage therapist available for after my long run in the desert was icing on the cake! I will definitely be back and would recommend this Airbnb to anyone!
This spot is a dream!! Fantastic all around. High recommend.
We arrived to a very welcoming host. It was more than we expected. So many cool things do do on the property. S’mores kit in our fridge was such a sweet surprise! Definitely an experience I would enjoy again. House is about 15-20 minutes from the west entrance of Joshua tree. Such a cute little spot with great hosts. Don’t miss out on this spot!
Absolutely loved the communal area with the pool, Jacuzzi and hammocks! The vibe inside the space was super cool and artsy. Def appreciated the hospitality and communication from the hosts as well!
Amazing location, first time staying at a desert airbnb and definitely is our top favorite. We had plans on going to Joshua Tree and other hikes but we had more then enough amenities (pool, hot tub, steam room, stargazing hammocks, fire pit and BBQ grills) that we stayed in all our vacation. Definitely, would come back in the summer again and this time with friends so they can benefit from the experience.
We took our six month old to the Use your Illusion trailer and it was the perfect space for our little family! Greg was an amazing host and super easy to communicate with! The property is beautiful and so peaceful and relaxing and all the guests we met were so kind to us! We look forward to more trips out to the desert and hope to stay here again :)
We had an amazing time at Greg and Coopers place! It was such a beautiful property! 10/10 recommend. We will definitely be coming back again:)
Fantastic experience! The trailer and overall property are impeccably maintained. Greg and Cooper have already thought of everything you may need or want during your stay (including a s’mores kit!). The property is spacious with enough amenities (steam room?!) and places to relax (hammocks and comfy blankets everywhere!!) that we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. At night we loved watching bats and satellites from the hot tub, and making s’mores on the gas bonfire. Waking up early for a sunrise hike in the BLM land behind the property is must try. Overall an incredibly relaxing and magical experience thanks to Greg and Cooper.
If you ever need a disconnection from crazy city life, this is the place! Perfect getaway (was like a mini oasis). Greg was very informative and on top of everything. The ambiance was super chill and you can never go wrong with all the amenities that were offered. ☺️
A great spot with great hosts. This is the perfect home base for experiencing the magic of the desert.
It was truly a pleasure to stay at the illusion trailer. Greg was very accommodating and personable. He ensured that we knew where all the amenities were on the property and was always available for questions. The Airbnb was clean and met all our expectations. I highly recommend the illusion trailer when staying in JoshuaTree!!! Angela
We loved our stay! The pool is so relaxing and Cooper and Greg have taken extra time to set up stargazing pads, smores around the fire and add little touches to the spaces that really make it special. We will definitely be back
Expect to be blown away! What a beautiful place Mojave Beach is and so obviously created with love. Great responsive hosts that greeted us when we got there. Everything was so clean and well kept (dishes, pots, towels, sheets). Moonrise platforms to enjoy the night time sky and places to watch sunrise and sunset. Got to see some frolicking bats and hear a pack of coyotes. Hot tub terrific; pool feels like the arctic ocean (that's supposed to be good for your skin right - lol). Lots of great places to eat. We are already planning our next trip. Thanks Cooper and Greg!
Mojave Beach is a great place to relax and leave all your worries at the turn off road. Situated on a private slice of the desert, Greg and Cooper have really built (and continue to build) a wonderful site to share the wonders of Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree. The onsite amenities are excellent with a beautiful pool to enjoy during the hot days and saunas and hot tubs to unwind in after a day of exploring. The first day we had plans to go to the National Park, but were totally content just chilling at the pool and reading our books. You are also situated right next to some BLM land that was perfect for watching sunrise. We highly recommend a stay here to explore around the area for hiking, the park and other quirks (goats and llamas, the Integretron, Giant Rock, just the vibe...) that this desert community has to offer.
Greg is an amazing host. Is there for whatever you need and the place is amazing. Perfect for self distancing and to unplug and recharge. We really liked our stay there.
My boyfriend and I loved this cute trailer! It has such an intimate and home-y feel. The place was super clean and organized. The host was such a genuine, super helpful and awesome host !! We stayed here to visit Joshua Tree and it wasn’t that far away! We will definitely come back in the future
With friendly hosts and amazing amenities, this is the perfect place for a getaway!
Very relaxing weekend at a cute place. As a group of architects we appreciated the attention to detail and the amenities. Nice location close to town and the national park.
I can't say enough about how much we liked being here. There are SO many great amenities, my favorites were stargazing in the hottub, and reading in the hammocks. Also the sauna! The space was clean and quiet, with huge widows and beautiful light. The host is awesome, a truly nice and interesting person. I hope we can go back one day. If this place seems at all appealing to you, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try!
A lovely place to rest and rejuvenate! The hosts are very kind, and Greg goes out of his way to make guests feel at home. Quick responses, great local advice, you name it. The Use Your Illusion Trailer couldn't be more stylish. It had everything I needed to feel comfortable for the weekend. I enjoyed exploring Joshua Tree and the local area, as well as relaxing in the hot tub under the stars at the end of the day. Perfect way to wind down! I look forward to returning to Mojave Beach. Thank you, Cooper & Greg!
Cooper and Greg are very nice hosts and very quick to respond. This site is beautiful and jacuzzi is a perk under the night sky. If your looking for something different this is the place!
Cooper and Greg are amazing. If your looking for something easy and just as much fun stay here!
We loved staying at Cooper & Greg’s! The trailer was so cute and bigger than the pictures had shown. It was so fun to stay in and had everything we needed. The property was amazing, can’t say enough good things about it! Would definitely go back!
Amazing location -- next to some quiet public land that you can take a walk around, less than 30 minutes drive from JTNP, about 15 minutes from the town, etc. The property's shared amenities are amazing too -- great hot tub, super cool gas firepit, lovely lounging areas for reading during the day or stargazing at night, and two types of saunas. The Illusion Trailer itself is really lovely too. I think Greg retrofitted the trailer himself, and it's super cute, with fun decorations, and even a s'mores kit which is such a sweet touch. It's a super efficient use of the space too: living, bedroom, bathroom, and a full kitchen, all in one trailer. It's actually quite a steal because the other Airbnbs on the property don't have their own kitchen (only a shared outdoor kitchen), so if you want to be covid-safe, it's nice to have the one in the trailer to yourself. I didn't meet Cooper, but Greg was SO nice! He met me, with a mask on, when I arrived and gave me tour and some tips on where to catch the high desert sunset. It seems like he built everything himself, which is really cool. I would highly highly recommend any of the Airbnbs they have! I didn't run into any of the other guests (Greg let me know when the other guests were done using the outdoor facilities e.g. hot tub and firepit), but in normal times the pool & firepit area could be a really fun social place. Next time :)
Super sweet space in the desert, artistic touches, wonderfully clean and good energy. Strolling into adjacent blm land to watch the sunset was an unexpected bonus. Great hosts, very responsive, we had everything we needed and felt perfectly comfortable in this space. Desert home away from home. Thank you so much!
Wow! The trailer was a perfect get away from LA. It’s spacious enough for 2-4 people to enjoy, and the views from both inside and outside are some of the best I’ve ever seen. The steam room was my favorite, but the hottub at night under the stars and the dry sauna in the morning was also such a gift to experience. The property itself has hammocks, a comfy star gazing platform, and access to BLM where there are 360 views after a short hike out. There’s even an outdoor kitchen with a grill! I will definitely be returning!
What a cute place just outside of Joshua Tree. Communication was great and everything was there that we needed. The inside is so cute! Definitely would recommend this place
Loved staying the night at Cooper and Greg’s place. It was super cute and comfortable. Nice get away from the city and rush of life. Can get cold at night but if you are under the covers you are fine. The hot tub and steam room were a nice luxury. Just didn’t like sharing it with other guest who were choosing to drink and be loud. Messed with the calm environment. That wasn’t in control of the owners so still gave them 5 stars because the space was nice. Definitely would return.
We had a lovely time in Cooper & Greg’s trailer and we we had stayed 2 nights in order to make the best of the place. Will definitely keep this option for next time! :) thanks again for having us in your trailer!
The Illusion Trailer is incredible. Spacious for a 'small' space with all amenities you could need for a nice stay. The on-site amenities (hot tub, sauna and private outdoor bath) were extra perks and well appointed. Some great views all around. I had access to wifi in the living room (a bit spoty in the bedroom). I stayed during a rainy chilly day but the heaters kept the space warm and comfortable. The drive into Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree are easy and only a short distance. Would certainly stay again! Thanks, Greg!
We loved this stay so much . Saved for future visits but definitely will return for a longer stay . So relaxing. Thanks Greg for everything!
Wonderful stay! Loved the hot tub, steam room and sauna. Clean, private, peaceful and great location. Great communication with hosts and easy check in/out. We’ll be back!
The Use Your Illusion space is such a trip! Its the cutest most comfy space with adorable touches throughout. And it just so happens to back up to government land, so hiking and exporation are right in your backyard! hot tub was amazing as well... we will be back, thank you Greg, Kim, and Cooper!!!
This place is what dreams are made of!! My GF and I met both Greg and Kim at some point during our 2 night/ 3 day stay and they were wonderful! Kim made sure we knew how to get the steam room, sauna and hot tub going and that we had everything we needed during our stay. We were curious, since it was a compound, if we’d be surrounded by other people but although there were other couples we felt perfectly secluded and weren’t bothered at all by their presence! -LGBTQ friendly and INVITING!! -The grounds back up to the BLM and there in nothing for for miles behind you!! -The steam room and hot tub are musts!! -We hiked the Ryan Mountain Summit(in JTNP) as well as Painted and Ladder Canyon(which we’re a gorgeous 2ish hrs away). -Need a tattoo to commemorate your trip? We got ours at Strata Tattoo Shop with Ballentine and we’re really happy with them! Don’t miss out on this adorable little gem!
Loved looking at the stars from the hot tub, and starting my day in the steam room. My boyfriend and I want to come back with friends. The hosts were wonderful.
Tucked away desert paradise! The place was pristine with everything we could possibly need. Sauna steam room and hot tub too :)
The illusion trailer was exactly as pictured—stylish and impeccably clean with beautiful views. Cooper, Greg, and Kim were incredibly attentive, gracious, and responsive and made sure everything was perfect before turning over the keys and making us feel like we had the entire property to ourselves. We were worried about having to share the grounds and amenities with other guests, but even though all spaces/rooms were booked full, we never saw anyone and everything was available when we needed it, from the outdoor kitchen and dining area, to the steam room and sauna, to the hot tub under the stars. Even though it was the dead of winter and hitting freezing at night, the water was 104 degrees and the space heater in the trailer made it feel like a summer vacation. The place was also easy to get to without four wheel drive and was close to downtown and the park, while being remote enough to make you feel small in nature. I would highly recommend it for any sort of trip—romantic getaway, solo, or with friends. You will not regret it and I hope we will be back soon.
Amazing experience - an absolutely perfect spot for a getaway. Greg was so communicative and greeted us at check in. The sauna, steam room, hot tub and stargazing pads were all incredible and our stay in the trailer was perfect. It was freezing cold at night but the space heaters did well - and extra blankets too :) such thoughtful touches like tea and coffee provided as well as extra towels. we even got to frolic around the BLM land behind the property during sunset and the colors were amazing. We loved every second of our stay and hope to be back again soon! Appreciated the opportunity to disconnect & recharge - left feeling so rejuvenated.
This is my third stay at Greg and Cooper’s property. It’s truly relaxing and has great vibes. The saunas are my favorite part!
Extremely quaint get away on a quiet piece of land located in close proximity to all you could want to see in Joshua tree. Extremely clean with access to great amenities such as a jacuzzi and star gazing pads. We definitely hope to be back again soon!
Thank you so much, we loved everything and will keep it in our favorites!
Cooper and Greg’s property is so beautiful. The hot tub was great, and the stargazing pad! Wow, we stayed out looking at the stars for hours and almost fell asleep. So relaxing.
We can’t wait to return! Beautiful landscape, super clean amenities and overall a wonderful place to recharge. The hot tubs and steam room were exactly what we needed. Hospitality at its finest!
The cutest trailer, bigger than I thought it would be and fit all of our needs. Cooper and Greg were great hosts. Responses were quick to any questions I had. Awesome spot to watch the sunsets and stars.
Cooper and Greg’s place is magical. It’s an ever evolving tract of land that’s going to be so cool when complete. For now, they are able to provide more than enough as well! There is a hot tub, sauna, steam room, star gazing pad and miles and miles of desert land to roam in the back of the property. The trailer I stayed in had a secluded but connected feel, which I loved. These hosts are very communicative, love their land a lot and want to make sure you have a great time, no matter what your speed is. Definitely recommend.
If I could give six stars I would.
I want to move in! I’ve never stayed in a trailer before but this was a home. I actually didn’t want to leave. I highly recommend it. The hammocks and stargazing amenities. Fresh coffee every morning. Great communication with host.
Incredible property! Love all the amenities esp the steam room and the hot tub. Star gazing was AMAZING!
Our stay was awesome! We loved it so much we ended adding another night and we cant wait to be back next summer.
Repeat guest at chez Cooper and Greg. Peaceful, easy, comfy, private, all-around groovy.
This is my third or fourth stay and leaving rave reviews of Cooper and Greg’s place is easy. It’s an awesome place, they are awesome humans, it’s an awesome location. They are constantly improving and making things even better. A great spot in the hi desert.
This is the perfect little nook to get away and relax in Yucca Valley. It’s not that far away from popular spots such has Pappy and Harriet’s or grocery stores. We will ABSOLUTELY be back. The steam room was incredible! The sauna was amazing! We actually got locked out on accident and they were super easy and quick to help us back in. I absolutely recommend this gem if you want to get away from the city. They even have a coffee maker for the mornings! We’ll be back 100%
This trailer was perfect for a stay near Joshua Park. It's about 25-30 mins from the opening of the park, and there's plenty of different food options within that range. There were suggestions of places to eat/visit in a booklet in the trailer which was nice! The hospitality was amazing. My boyfriend and I loved the hot tub/steam room/sauna combination. Would definitely recommend or stay here again :)
This is a lovely space to unwind after exploring the desert. I would definitely come back again.
Seriously the best air bnb in yucca valley anyone can ask for! You can feel the love and care everywhere you go. Coolest hosts and awesome amenities. WE CAN’T WAIT TO BOOK OUR NEXT TRIP! You won’t be disappointed : )
Greg’s place is as beautiful as you see in the photos. Great location close enough to Joshua tree. Very stylish and clean. Can’t wait to come back :)
Mojave Beach is the perfect spot in Yucca Valley. The steam room, sauna, and hot tub were the perfect recovery after a day in Joshua Tree. You’ll feel like you’re in your own private desert oasis, but you’re not far away from popular spots such has Pappy and Harriet’s or grocery stores. Excited to head back once the pool is in!
It’s a great escape from reality, and my favorite part were the stars! I can’t wait to come back once it gets warmer
Loved my stay!
Exceeded my expectations! The property is amazing and will be even better with the pool they are currently adding! The trailer was very cozy and had everything I needed. Definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a quiet getaway with spa-like amenities.
My sister and I had a great stay in the Use Your Illusion trailer! The space was super cute and clean, just as pictured :) we were happy to have the Keurig for morning coffee! The recreational land behind the trailer was awesome to explore. We unfortunately didn’t end up using the sauna/steam/hot tub because we were out long days, but it looked lovely! It was easy to find, and I would definitely stay again!
Had a great time! Hosts were kind, responsive, and eager to help with anything. Their property is lovely and adjacent to hundreds of acres of public land. Makes me want to live in Yucca someday.
Beautiful Space! Waking up in this peaceful space and enjoying the beautiful landscape was my favorite part.
Wonderful place & vibe. We had the chance to meet Greg who is an awesome host. The trailer looks exactly as in the photos, the landscape is impressive. We had a really good time here, thank you Greg for being so nice!
Looks just like the photos. Very clean and great space!
The RV and the rest of the property were both SO cool! We had such a great time and were pleasantly surprised with the outdoor kitchen, the sauna, the jacuzzi, and really loved some of the touches such as the stargazing pads. We are excited to come back and see what else Cooper & Greg continue to add to the space. They were super communicative and helpful, so everything went very smoothly! Thanks so much for having us!
Cooper and Greg were outstanding - super friendly & awesome. All the amenities were fantastic. Cannot wait to return when the large pool/hot tub/fire pit area is complete. But the current hot tub, steam room, sauna, hammocks, star gazing pads and outdoor kitchen area were phenom!! See you again soon #mojavebeach
Amazing! This spot was everything we wanted...and more. Between having perfect views of sunset from the couch (and chairs outside) and sunrise from bed, and the acres of BLM land behind the property to hike and explore during the day...idk what more we could have asked for. Greg was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The location is perfect. The property itself is super spacious and, even with other folks there staying at other listings, we still had alllll the privacy we could have asked for. The trailer is adorable. Decorated perfectly, the small space is well thought out and we had all the things we needed to feel at home and settle in (reg sized fridge, cooking stuff, coffee pods, tea, Bluetooth speaker, AC, Brita filter, etc.). We could have stayed for a week, happily and comfortably. We plan on returning in the summer to give the Hillbilly Hot Tub a try....and that pool, when it’s ready. Can’t wait!
Had a great stay in this very thoughtfully put together and well equipped trailer (more of a mobile home really) that was a great value for my solo trip. There’s a full kitchen that’s well equipped and amazing amenities on the property that are shared with the owners other rentals. The infrared sauna in particular was amazing. Keep in mind that’s it’s about 19 Mins from downtown yucca valey / 25 mins to the west park entrance. Time flies on the drive since it’s so gorgeous though. Plus the unit is located right on the border of tons of BLM land on a Mesa that’s beautiful in its own right!
We had a great 2 day stay! The place was very welcoming and we had everything we needed. We got in after dark and Greg met us and guided us back to the RV. Loved the RV btw and the grounds. Per Greg's suggestion, we explored a bit and caught the sunrise up on the ridge! We also saw a roadrunner zip by from the living room view on our last morning. Pool coming soon! Definitely would stay again.
Great place to stay : easy access, not to far from the Park, very clean and authentic, Greg was very welcoming and they are building a pool ! I recommand it without hesitation
The place was clean & stylin’! It contained all the essentials & then some. The spa, sauna, steam room, hammocks, and meditative bench were an added bonus. I would highly recommend this space. Greg was friendly & quick to respond.
This BNB has an amazing hot tub, sauna, and steam room.
Cooper & Greg's camper is a perfect getaway in Yucca Valley. The camper is clean and spacious. And the overall property is great with a lot of amenities! I will be back for sure!
Greg & Cooper created such a cool desert oasis compound that is full of surprises and thoughtful details. Loved the interior design of the trailer. It was totally roomier than expected — it even has a kitchen! it was private, too. They were filling up the brand new pool during our stay, which promises to be a refreshing amenity. we had fun stumbling up the hill (in sandals) behind the trailer and watching the sunset and ant parades. Super close to Integratron and not far from vintage shopping and pioneer town (Pappy & Harriets). The location was perf. Highly recommend.
I found myself really well
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful one night stay at Cooper and Greg's place. We met Kim who was incredibly welcoming and communicative. She provided us with a tour of the property which we very much appreciated. The trailer was well-decorated and had a great vibe to it. We were able to enjoy the pool, stargazing pads, and the sauna during our stay. Amazing amenities and views. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again!
A little oasis in the desert. Surprisingly spacious interior. Really fun design choices. Completely kitted out to be able to cook or just relax and microwave white castle cheeseburgers and drink Pinot. Pool is awesome, we lucked out and were the only visitors there but even at full capacity I don't think it would be problematic sharing the amenities. Fantastic stargazing set up as well. Fantastic place to spend a little time in the high dessert at.
We had an amazing stay - the trailer is much more spacious than photos make out. The newly opened pool adds so much to the land. We had all the amenities we needed - kitchen, pool, outdoor kitchen, washing machines, we couldn’t ask for me.. only wish we stayed longer!
Amazing hospitality and property with everything you need to have a wonderful time and relax ✨
An awesome place to stay near Joshua Tree. The trailer was the perfect size for two people and very clean. Loved our stay and look forward to coming back again!
Awesome space in the middle of a desert Mesa. Loved the warmth and relaxing vibes.
Thank you for being such amazing hosts. This is my second time staying in your trailer and honestly I just want to live there. The way you built and decorated it makes you feel so at home. Cozy, clean, bright. Your new pool is a private oasis and the bright stars at night are just incredible. Can’t wait to come back
The space is so cool and fun! Greg is friendly, super easy to communicate with and has made the property outstanding. Me and my friend spent most of the time next to the pool, and wish we booked one extra night.
Cooper and Greg's place is excellent. The pool design and the layout of the whole property is very thoughtful. We didn't even have time to do all the different things they had to offer! Also, Greg and Cooper themselves are wonderful, great hosts and just seem like great people. Can't wait to go back!
Great hosts and great place. Would definitely come back here again
This property was everything we hoped for and more! A friend and I spent the weekend here in early August and really enjoyed ourselves. We spend the early mornings hiking and were able to relax by the pool in the heat of the afternoons. We also utilized the outdoor kitchen to grill a delicious dinner followed by some incredible stargazing. The trailer was well designed and had many thoughtful amenities. The AC worked great and made for a very comfortable sleeping space. We also met some great people staying in other parts of the property. Everyone was super friendly and we had a great time! The hosts answered all of our questions and were even there to greet us even though we came in late on our first evening. We highly recommend this property! Just book it, you won't regret it.
Can’t recommend this highly enough! Amazing space, great deal - do it!
Awesome place, lots too do on the property and close to Joshua Tree
My friend and I stayed in Cooper & Greg’s place for 2 nights and we could not recommend their place enough! The RV was much bigger than we expected and had everything we needed. The property is beautiful and a short drive to town and to Joshua tree. I would highly recommend this Airbnb to anybody.
We are Joshua Tree regulars since the vibe here is amazing, and honestly, we think this place just became our new #1 pick for a JT AirBnb. It delivers the solemnity one would seek from Yucca Valley/JT without compromising on comfort. All the amenities are awesome. This is a love project by Greg and company and it shows a lot, from the star gazing pads to the infrared sauna - everything was perfect. We cannot wait to go back and experience this all over again. :)
Amazing location for a solo retreat with lots of amenities! I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends!
Cooper & Greg's place was a gem. The RV was spacious and well equipped with everything you needed. The pool was nice and refreshing in the heat and had many chill areas around it to relax. The property was quite large so we went walking in the hills for the sunset. A great stay
The space was comfortable, clean, and the perfect desert getaway.
We had such a fun time staying in the Use Your Illusion unit at Mojave Beach. I'd never stayed in a trailer before and was really impressed by the experience! Everything was very comfortable and high quality, just understandably down-sized to fit within the space (i.e. smaller sized fridge, stove, oven, shower, bed, etc) Greg was an awesome host, responded to all our questions and requests almost immediately. It was a pleasure getting to know him a little bit and spending time on this terrific property. Throughout our stay, my partner and I kept turning to each other to note little thoughtful touches that made it seem like the hosts thought of their guests' comfort at every turn. All the amenities listed are as described and really enhanced our experience in the desert - hot tubs, fire pit, a very clean and refreshing looking pool (that we didn't get to enjoy because it was a bit too cold for us), steam room, sauna, hiking trails right behind the property, stargazing pads, hammocks galore. We'd definitely stay here again!
Amazing place. Can not recommend highly enough Gregg was so helpful and kind. Hot tub and pool were especially great!!! Such a beautiful property Gregg was wonderful we had an amazing time!!!
We had an incredible stay at Greg and Cooper’s place. We took full advantage of the amazing on site amenities. We used the hot tubs and hammocks both nights. The star gazing was incredible and Joshua tree exceeded our expectations. Friendly hosts and good vibes, highly recommend.
Awesome place and amenities. We had a great time and Greg was really helpful and very accommodating.
Wonderful stay! Was super clean when we arrived. Cooper and Greg were gracious hosts. Would most definitely stay again.
First off, Greg is a great host, secondly, his whole place is amazing. It was like staying at a resort, it was perfect for our mini getaway retreat. I was apprehensive about staying at a trailer/RV since I haven't done that before, but this was a nice place. Everything was a little smaller, but it didn't bother us at all, we hardly even noticed it. It was all covered with a little patio area that was great for enjoying our morning coffee or for watching the sun set while sipping margaritas. Beyond our own private area, the whole property was amazing. It backs up to BLM land, so we could easily go on hikes without having to worry about driving somewhere and parking. After a long hike, or a long day of doing nothing, we treated ourselves to the amazing dry sauna, then the steam room, which was fantastic, and the jacuzzi was rejuvenating. Even the pool was great, I used it to cool off in between "treatments" and as cryotherapy. We ended the evening star gazing in the hammock "village", it was delightful. Greg is very chill and relaxed, he gave us the grand tour when we checked in and we even got to chatting a little. He is very easy going. Our whole weekend experience was wonderful, we would definitely go back, and we highly recommend Greg's place.
An absolute gem and Greg is the best! Will be back soon!
Greg was friendly, helpful, and an excellent communicator. + The airbnb is exactly like the listing portrays it. Great value!
This place is so great! It is the perfect desert getaway! I can’t wait to go back!!!!
Comfy bed, very clean, warm, everything you need & more. You can order pizza and it comes straight to your trailer!
Wonderful getaway. Came at a time when it was a bit more cold than expected, but it added to the coziness of the trailer. Amenities available were also outstanding. Sauna + steam room?! A fire pit area to lounge underneath the stars. Everything you could ask for for in a getaway from city life. Definitely recommend for couples and small families!
This was such a nice retreat very close to the Joshua tree national park, and in the middle of a gorgeous landscape. I really enjoyed my time and made use of the hot tub, fire pit, sauna, and steam room which were all wonderful! Beautiful views of the stars at night and a nice spot to feel somewhat isolated without actually being on your own. I would definitely return!
Use your Illusion trailer was a great place to stay. The trailer was very clean, with stylish decor and the amenities were great, especially the pool and hot tub. Even though these are 'shared' amenities you wouldn't know it! The trailer is situated far from the other guests so it feels secluded and private. Overall it was a fab and different experience!
The most peaceful place ever:)
I’ve found a sweet new home away from home! Cooper and Greg could not have been more lovely from the moment I booked the place to the moment I left. The place itself is adorable. Great hiking to go watch a sunset right in the backyard and incredible hot tub. I came here on a mini solo writers retreat and had a perfect time- this place is great for artistic endeavors. It’s quiet and peaceful set in a beautiful landscape. I was even blessed with a rare snow storm and stayed an extra night. Cooper and Greg were so accommodating and thoughtful with the unexpected snow. Staying here was an absolute delight! I can’t wait to come back! Do yourself a favor and stay at their wonderful Mojave Beach at some point in your life.
A really well located and great place to stay near JT. Cooper and Greg were fabulous and super responsive. Sauna was great as well!
Amazing location and trailer/houses with awesome amenities and wonderful hosts. Would definitely recommend folks to stay here!
Stay here. It’s magic. Simple perfect for a get away or creative hideout!
Would definitely stay again!! We loved the hammocks & exploring trails behind the property the most! (Plenty of amazing amenities to enjoy like the pool, sauna etc but I’m a literal chihuahua I freeze at 60) But also the comforter??? SO SOFT, We slept like babies The perfect place to get away for a few days
Such a unique experience. Cooper and Greg were great hosts, very communicative and helpful. The hot tub under the starry sky was magical. Trailer was nice and cozy. Would definitely be back.
Thanks for a great stay! Greg is really friendly and accommodating. Loved the hot tub! The trailer is quirky and great for a unusual stay in the desert! Be warned the distances out in JT are huge so it’s much further away than we thought. Frontier cafe in Yucca Valley was a great recommendation for breakfast. Thanks for your hospitality!
I have been to Joshua Tree many times and this was by far my best experience, largely due to the fact that this Airbnb is a dream come true! The property is incredible and Cooper & Greg were so easy to communicate with. Highly recommend waking up to see the sunrise!
Loved the hot tub & the hammocks. Thanks for the great stay!!
This place was a blast. Greg was highly responsive, gave us a tour of the amenities (which are awesome and unique) upon our arrival and made Sure we had everything we needed. The trailer was as described and we’d definitely love to come back here again!
This place is the best ever! This was our second time staying here and it was even better the second time. The hot tub, pool and fire pit is brand new and so nice we would’ve extended our stay if we could.
This place is highly recommended. Cooper and Greg are exceptional hosts. They were quick to respond to inquiries before our trip and during our stay. Greg was such a gracious and friendly host throughout our visit - Cooper was out of town during our stay, so we didn't get a chance to meet here. The accommodations were wonderful and the overall property is so comfortable and peaceful. The pool, spa, saunas, and hot tub were outstanding bonus for the trip. They are shared amenities with others who stay on the property, but there is so much space that we never really crossed paths with the others that often. We cannot wait to come back and stay again.
This was a perfect place for my trip as a solo female who is a little scared of nature. Seriously, Greg was the best host, on-property and responsive. The amenities were gorgeous, unique and thoughtful. I went alone for a little writing retreat and felt the perfect balance of privacy and engagement. I can't recommend enough.
As always, an inspiring and relaxing experience
Everything was amazing. The place is so nice.
Greg and Cooper showed us amazing hospitality while staying at their place! Their hot tub under the stars followed by smores at the fire pit were amazing experience to our trip. We stayed in thier Use your illusion trailer which was more than we expected and the perfect get away to relax at after a day of exploring Joshua Tree. Definitely coming back this summer to explore, and experience this amazing place more!
My wife and I had an amazing time at Greg's place. We stayed at the Use Your Illusion Trailer, and we were very satisfied with the overall style, space and comfort. We were able to make use of all of the properties amenities, including the Steam Room, Infrared Sauna, Pool, Jacuzzi, Fire Pit (with Smores!), and sunrise photos on the Hammocks with our morning coffee. We even met Greg's adorable pup Mojo Jojo :) Thanks Greg, for a wonderful stay at your uniquely styled, and well maintained Airbnb.
This place was the perfect retreat! Between the comfy trailer, amazing amenities on the property, and the great hosts i had a fabulous stay. Highly recommend!
This was one of the best Airbnb experiences we have ever had. From the adorable decor to the incredible amenities (hot tub, sauna, steam room, stargazing deck), we had an amazing time staying here. It’s close to Joshua Tree, and there’s acres to explore right behind the stat itself. Made Joshua Tree that much more unforgettable - would love another chance to stay here again.
Was an excellent experience beginning to end. Greg is a nice guy and made sure we were taken care of the whole time and answered any questions we had. The location was about 20min drive from Joshua Tree National Park. The hot tub was wonderful after a long hike. 10/10 would stay again.
If you’re looking for a place to escape. This is it. Cooper & Greg do such a great job at making you feel at home and have such a beautiful property. We could watch the sunset from the living room and also walk 20 feet behind the RV and hike on their 5+ acres of land. Pool & the hot tub huge plus. There’s also a labyrinth, hammocks, and an area to star gaze. We saw a shooting star! HIGHLY recommend.
Perfect hideaway! Peaceful, quiet and serene with tons of amenities. The trailer is equipped with everything you need. Bring groceries and cook your own meals for the entire stay.
Best Airbnb ever!
Cooper and Greg's property and amenities are all you can ask for. The land is beautifully cared for and the access to blm land right behind the property is an amazing way to see the sunrise with a clear view. The hammocks were dreamy and the pool was a great way to spend the day relaxing. The trailer is private but you're also close enough to others on the property so you don't feel too isolated. Greg is super warm, friendly, and responsive. I definitely recommend this place.
The place was breathtaking! The pool and hot tub was the best! Stargazing on the hammocks was the best way to end the night
An oasis with amazing hosts in the high desert of SoCal. Great for a getaway!
Cutie little trailer with all the basic amenities needed for a quick jaunt in the desert. Perfectly adjacent to the pool, hot tub, fire pit, hammock hangout and stargazer pads all superb spots for celestial observation. Impressive shared outdoor grill/kitchen zone to compliment the quaint trailer kitchen. The s'mores box in the fridge was a sweet added touch. Far enough out of the city yet super easy to locate.
Great place to stay. Hosts were extremely accommodating and friendly
Wonderful stay, Greg is extremely nice and has a beautiful property.
Place was clean and well maintained. Host was very generous with supplies in the trailer and the pool was amazing.
Great place to relax. Hosts were very attentive to detail. My friend and I were given an outstanding tour of all the great fun things this place has to offer. Definitely recommended.
This place was amazing! A perfect getaway. Everything about our stay was perfect. Greg is an excellent host! Cannot wait to visit again.
It was great
Super fun for a couples isolation vacation, stay in the trailer and hang out on the property!
We stayed at Cooper's and Greg's place to relax and unwind by the pool--and that's exactly what we got. The pool area is just steps away from the trailer, and despite plenty of other guests using the pool, we still had complete privacy in the trailer. This is a great place to recharge!
Hi Greg! We had an amazing time at your property! Thank you so much for your hospitality. You’re pool area is really beautiful. We’re really thankful because we had a relaxing trip. It’s actually my bday celebration and your service and your property made my bday extra special. Thank you!
Cooper and Greg were phenomenal hosts. They were very responsive to every need and question, from cooking supplies to the hot tub. The place is located at a beautiful setting, and includes a pool, spa and sauna. It's like being at a hotel but without the crowds. You are a 15-minute drive from the main drag, and a 20or 30-minute drive from Joshua Tree National Park. The kitchen is small but serviceable, and the outdoor seating area is a great place for lunch.
Best place for a weekend getaway. The amazing amenities and the stargazing opportunities make this AirBnb the place to go!
This is such a cute spot out in the desert! It’s super close to Joshua Tree and the BLM. The amenities are top notch! You are behind a private gate with an outdoor kitchen, pool, sauna, and hammocks! You can legit stay within the site all day! The trailer is super comfortable and the AC and hess as yet work super well! It was a great time!
This place was exactly what I needed for 2020. The trailer is super cute and is very comfy. There is BLM land behind it and makes for a great morning hike to see the sunrise. The property is awesome and you are gated in at night, so you are super safe. I didn't even lock my trailer. Greg was super responsive anytime you needed anything. Guests even told me he cooked their turkey because the oven broke down in their rental. That is beyond in today's world. You are super close to Joshua Tree and only and hour from Big Bear for adventures. I also recommend going to the The Glass Outhouse Art Gallery in 29 Palms which is also super close by and the Desert Christ Park in Yucca Valley is a nice peaceful walk. At night there is a gas fire by the pool area and the hot tub is so relaxing as you watch the stars. My favorite was the steam room. The sauna is also an amazing vibe ! I wish I could just move in and never leave! STAY HERE you will not regret it!
70's Throwback RV in the middle of the desert. What more could you ask for? The RV is funky and cozy, but the highlight of the space is the hot tub & pool. Highly recommend hot tub under the stars and a stop at the steam room with some of that eucalyptus oil and a candle. Truly a oasis in the desert. Frontier Café & Desierto Alto in Yucca Valley were great finds.
This space is a treasure in the desert with an amazing hot tub and pool and the sauna is super dope. The sky at night is magical. Find peace, decompress and enjoy the magic of the space.
Cooper & Greg are amazing hosts!! We loved our wknd get away! Thank you, hope to come back sometime!
Staying here was great Greg was very accommodating and friendly the land surrounding was fun to explore and we loved the steam room. We kept returning to the fire pit for warmth and smores! Would definitely stay again! Ayesha S.
This was the perfect place to stay during our Joshua tree visit! The trailer was so freaking cute and the property was beautiful and we loved the hot tub! There was so much to do on the property and the hosts are so thoughtful (even had a little s’mores kit ready for us to make s’mores by the fire!) I would definitely recommend staying here!
Just what I needed to get away and relax. Greg was super responsive and welcoming. The property is perfect to socialize or keep to yourself. I’ll likely go back.
Don't even know where to begin because my stay here with my partner was so beautiful. Greg greeted us and showed us around the amazing property, even prettier than the photos provided. We used all the amenities - steam room, sauna, hot tub, and fire pit. My boyfriend was so excited that C & G left a build your own smores kit in the room, lol. The trailer is super clean and cozy, gets plenty warm on colder nights. We even used the kitchen almost every night so it's super easy to cook in. Be prepared though, you may not have the best cell reception or internet so TAKE A REAL VACATION and take in this literal paradise! We did stream a movie one night on Amazon and had 0 hiccups, so you can always have music the or movies in the trailer. When it comes to the hosts, our car ran out of gas and wouldn't start near the end of our stay so Greg SAVED THE FREAKIN DAY and went into town for us and returned with a canister of gas! They're seriously the best AirBNB hosts I have ever experienced and we cannot wait to come back and stay with them again!
Greg was an amazing host and the property is great with tons of amenenites and things to do
This place was amazing! Definitely coming back.
