Airstream Safari 23 redone by professional architect. Light, airy, open-plan space honoring the spirit of Modernism. On-demand hot water heater for showers. Excellent “Travasaks" beds. Cook wear supplied. Private access and parking and private camp space. Four miles to town.
This special Airstream, exhibited twice by invitation at the Palm Springs Modernism Week, is on a five acre wooded property set in the middle of a hundred acre wood- a private, peaceful hideaway 10 minutes from Port Townsend and 5 minutes from Discovery Bay beaches. It is distanced from our cabin by 200 feet of forest and has its own lawn and driveway. Except for the cabin, it is the only dwelling for many acres of century old forest.
The Airstream guests will have private access to the site of the trailer. Only they (and sometimes the host) will park at the trailer or have access to that site.
Interaction with guests
A family member who lives on the acreage will see you into the trailer provided you indicate what time you will arrive at least 24 hours before checking in. It is fine if you cannot do so, but in that case you might have to rely on written instructions regarding the ways of the camper. We like to show you in personally, but you will see very little of your host after checking in. See our 80 reviews about our discreet interaction with our guests.
Other things to note
This is a trailer, not a house. It has a very nice interior, but there are certain limits to what it allows in the way of comfort.
-Hair dryers set to low, please, as they can short the system when set on high.
-Also, the toilet is a portable, camping type, not a permanent house type.
Prospective guests should think of this location as indoor/outdoor living. There will be no refund if you arrive and decide you don't really want to stay in an Airstream camper after all. Almost all of our guests have great fun around the campfire, but one or two guests were not comfortable with the folding camp chairs or the portable toilet. One elderly couple stayed only one of the two nights they had booked. Once again, this is a very nice camping trailer, not a house. There is no 'living room', but there is a campfire in a small lawn in the woods. You might not want to book it if you are not happy with the idea of sitting around a campfire.
-No smoking in the house, please. No pets. No parties! Only paying guests are allowed in the trailer unless you have made prior arrangements with me.
-This is a strictly shoes off trailer, but we offer indoor slippers (zori). Much more comfortable.
-Clean up any dishes or cooking utensils you use, then leave in dish drainer or re-shelve if dry.
-Wipe counters, please.
-Remove or trash all your leftover food items.
-When house trash bins fill, place bag in large, garage bins just outside the trailer and add new plastic bag to house bin.
-Wipe wet bath floor and sinks with house supplied rags, then drop in laundry basket.
-Place used towels and bedding, including mattress covers, in laundry basket before check out. Do not remove zippered mattress covers.
-Close all windows and doors upon checking out. Do not lock.
-Turn oven off.
-Turn water heater to off.
-Drive slowly on forest road. Deer sometimes appear, as might your host's car.

My profession is educator, mostly high school English or Language Arts. My passion since childhood has been surfing, which has taken me around the world. I play at a few other sports, i.e. swimming and sculling. I also get a lot of joy from long walks...alone or with a friend, life feels just about right while walking.
My wife is a nurse who might have been an artist or designer. She is very receptive to beauty, and that has been a blessing to all in our family. We start every day sharing the time it takes to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. This is a really good thing.
I am a life long reader. Some favorite novels are "The French Lieutenant's Woman" "Huckleberry Finn", "The Two Husbands of Dona Flor", and "Night Train to Lisbon". A lot of non-fiction lately.
