I love AirBnB. First of all their website rocks. Second of all it’s taken a vacation listing concept and made it social where you get to see the home owners and their reviews. Third and best of all….it opens up the door to a world of unique lodging opportunities.
I’ve got a thing for round circular structures. I find them peaceful and calming. I used to do yoga in one (gosh I miss that yurt) and wow sleeping in them is even better.
Anyhow the other night I was surfing the web and got lost down a rabbit hole. I was looking at teepee tents… which led me to a website that sold them which somehow brought me to a blog about yurts… and then down another path about lodging in yurts which connected me to AirBnB…see how that goes?!
And I found this delightful looking listing in Malibu on an Organic Farm. From what I gather it appears to be in a more remote place… where you can go on canyon hikes while soaking up the views. Not bad. Adding this one to the list. Fine the listing here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/900456
Korakia was born as an artist’s lavish hideaway during the Roaring Twenties. Modeled on a Moroccan villa and nestled at the foot of a towering mountain within a landscaped 1.5 acres, this resort gives the California desert an exotic North African feel. Located in Palm Springs, it’s 28 rooms and bungalows exude Mediterranean charm. The courtyards are designed for relaxation. Bocce balls and board games are all you need. At night dip in any of the two torch lit pools. Rooms start at $159 per night with a two night minimum. Visit them online at: www.korakia.com
There are times I revel in down to basics - sleep in a tent - camping. And other times when I indulge in luxurious lodging accommodations cocooned in Egyptian cotton sheets.
Far Meadow allows you to do both. Starting at around $250 per night you can select their unique A-Frame cabin sitting on twenty acres of private land, 7,500 feet above Bass Lake in the High Sierras. If that isn’t available, stay at their Log Cabin or Base Camp. At Base Camp you’ll feel like you are sleeping in a tree house located on historic Old Yosemite Road.
For those inclined to go retro - select one of their 2 vintage trailers. It’s in a prime riverside location. Bring some friends and to stay in the teepee tents nearby.
Oh - and for those with four legged travel companions…yes they are pet friendly.

And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour."
