The space

A kitsch haven in what can only be described as the coolest, weirdest town in America. 5 blocks from the Salton Sea, on the desert side of Bombay. This former family home is complete with everything you might need for exploring the Salton Sea and Imperial Valley, Salvation Mountain and Slab City. The town, the house and the sea are a photographer's dream. This is a great base from which to explore eccentric nearby sites such as Salvation Mountain and Slab City.Made up of a square mile grid of paved streets, the majority of the residents live in eclectic mobile homes. There is a small corner market, 2 bars, bait shop, volunteer fire station, an unmarked motel, and the flooded ruins of a once prosperous fishing mecca.Without a gas station, and the nearest one 20 miles away, most people rely on electrical golf carts to get around town.

The house is completely air-conditioned throughout and has a fun, Americana vibe, filled with metal-printed prints by the owner, a photographer.

The house features wood-paneling throughout, an open-plan living area, with comfy sofa-bed and TV. Dining area and kitchen, with TV. Office space with two desks. Cosy bedroom and covered outdoor living space. lots of closet space throughout.

Set in a big lot, completely enclosed all-around and very secure. Lots of on-site parking and room for pets.

A unique space in a unique place!

Bombay Beach is a fascinating destination, but the beach house is a disappointing stay for the price. Take water as the tap water is undrinkable without boiling, and towels and internet as they aren't provided. Dusty and neglected. Your memories of the intriguing town will make u…

Very stylish and comfortable little house in a fascinating town. This was a perfect base for my husband and I to go hiking and explore the Salton Sea area.

Secluded place, can be very quiet one of the neighbors did play drums though which we could very much hear inside. Great place for interesting pictures in the area. Slab City is not far which is unique to visit

Tao's place was great. Close to Salvation Mountain/East Jesus and lots of other interesting desert places to check out. The space was comfortable and there was plenty of room. I met the neighbors upon arrival and everyone was super nice and super helpful. Tao was responsive and …

Tao’s generosity of spirit and consummate hosting prowess is well worth the visit to any of his properties. The magic that is Bombay Beach can’t be described, but I dare any visitor to leave after spending at least 2 days (QT at the Ski Inn included) without feeling rich in frien…
