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!

Hi! I'm an Italian/American photographer and film director who is also very passionate about architecture, design and the creation of interesting new spaces. I've lived in several places (NY, Italy, Spain) and love to travel. For me, the opportunity that Airbnb brings in meeting people from all over the world is fantastic and I love welcoming people to my home.
I moved to this lovely home in Venice four years ago and have had a great time remodeling and renovating it. Venice is wonderful, dynamic neighborhood with the best vibe, restaurants, shops, weather and sites in L.A. Recently I purchased a property in Joshua Tree imagining it as a weekend home. Instead, I've fallen madly in love with the place and spend most of my time here and rent the Venice house out on Airbnb.
Please feel free to send any questions. I, or possibly my great friend Adriana, who helps manage the Venice property, will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks! Tao
