One block from the Salton Sea, the artsy „Vargas Paradise“ apartment is the perfect spot to explore one of the coolest and most eccentric towns in the United States. Bombay Beach is a photographers and filmmakers dream. It has the feeling of a Mad Max movie set combined with the Americana vibe of the 1960s and 1970s. The perfect spot to write that next chapter of your new book or edit your documentary. A great base from which to explore sites such as Salvation Mountain, East Jesus and Slab City.
Dear guests! Imperial County as well as Riverside County have issued on March 19th travel restrictions and Bombay Beach is an extremely vulnerable place. The majority of people are senior citizen, have health issues and many are too poor to afford basic health care. To protect our guests and the community we closed down our AirBnB until April 30th. After this date we changed to a minimum stay from 2 nights onwards closed Mondays and Tuesdays, until the crises last, to protect our guests and our local cleaning staff. If you want to stay longer than 5 nights, please contact us. We are very sad about this, because we love hosting people, and we as well as our local staff depends on the income. But no money and no meeting is worth endangering people. We hope for your understanding and would be pleased to welcome you as our guests in the future. The „Vargas Paradise“ apartment is a nod to the former owner of the house. He loved beautiful women and left a whole collection of the famous „Vargas Girls“ from the Playboy of sixties plus his own erotic paintings in his garage. Framed in gold they turn the small apartment at the back of the house into a kitschy art space. Set on a quarter acre yard the bright orange house features a large yard, a nice patio in the backyard on the right side of the house for you. The porch at the front of the house belongs to our other apartment "Bombay Beach Authentic House". - On-site parking for one car. - PLEASE NOTE: The kitchenette is equipped with: Electric water kettle, french press for coffee, Toaster, fridge, mini desk-top oven, one electric pan. But no microwave or stove. Normally there is also coffee, tea, sugar, oil, salt and pepper. If you love cooking, please consider renting our other apartment "Bombay Beach Authentic House", which has a full kitchen with a stove.
Throughout town and on the beach the Bombay Beach ruins tell stories of the towns past as a prosperous fishing and partying mecca. And while on first view the place might look rundown it is bustling with life: From the live music and unplanned parties in the famous Ski Inn, to its growing eccentric art scene, an opera house, galleries and lots of public art installations on the beach and throughout town, Bombay Beach is a place to make new friends and get away from it all. A great base from which to explore sites such as Salvation Mountain, East Jesus and Slab City, take endless walks on the beach, experience the marvelous sunsets the Salton Sea is famous for and go birdwatching in one of Americas prime birding locations.
  • Bombay Beach is pretty depressed. That's a major part of the attraction. Accept that and you're home free. His place is very well kept. If you can handle the reality it is a very interesting place.

  • My wife and I truly enjoyed ourselves in Bombay Beach. There is so much to do and see that really the best way to experience it is by spending the night. Some of them light up! Vargas’ paradise is in a great location, just a short walk from all the art exhibits and from the Ski Inn. The space is just what we needed and more. Uwe and Frauke are excellent hosts and made our stay extra special. Thank you so much again for the hospitality!

  • Amazing location next to the Salton Sea, cool art instillations and nice desert views. Had a lovely visit.

    Crys2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Although not a full kitchen, there was adequate supplies and kitchenware to prepare a meal. The check in was super easy, and the unit was very clean.

  • A great little apartment in a very interesting little town. I was perfectly happy with every aspect of staying at Uwe's place. It's roomy, bright, and well kept. Bombay Beach isn't the usual sort of tourist destination and this apartment fits that tone well - the decorations are so charmingly over-the-top and kitschy that no one over the age of 12 could find them titillating, let alone offensive. Uwe and his team were quick to communicate and a great source of useful information. I had a nice chat with Neil, who was looking after the property while I was there. Very highly recommended.

    Praveer2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The host provided many local tips which was nice. The inside of the cottage is a bit old, but it's clean.

    Tiffany2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Uwe's place is exactly like what is laid out on the listing. It's a bit smaller than the pictures give the impression of, but it's perfect if it's just a place to lay your head. It can get hot since the sun hits on the side of the bedroom, but that's expected and they do provide plenty of options to cool down. Would stay again! :-)

    The house was tentatively renovated with the idea to keep the original Americana vibe of the 60s/70s when Bombay Beach was a fishing, boat racing and partying hotspot. Most of the original furniture and decoration was preserved, from the kitschy kitchen wallpaper and plastic tiles, the wood-paneled living room with the fossil-decorated fire place and brown-yellow sofa to the painted eagle and busty cowgirl watch – it just feels like living in a movie set. Set on a quarter acre yard the bright orange house features a large shaded terrace with a coal fired grill build from an old water tank. On-site parking possible.

  • Frauke and Uwe are exceptional hosts! Communication was prompt and easy. Check in was smooth. The space was spotless even after a big storm. They are knowledgeable about the area. Incredibly friendly and happy to help. Bombay beach is such a unique destination and their home more than compliments the overall experience.

  • Desert Oasis at Bombay beach.

    Chelsea2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place from which to explore Bombay Beach and the east side of the Salton Sea. The house feel like a nice rustic cabin with heavy old comfortable furniture/ Mattresses were new memory foam and super comfy. The kitchen was great for cooking and the west-facing porch is amazing for sitting, drinking coffee, watching the sunset. I would absolutely rent this space again.

    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! Please contact us with any questions at all. NB: DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE PECULIARITY OR REMOTENESS OF BOMBAY BEACH..
  • The Bombay Beach House is the perfect retro bungaloo for a stay in Bombay Beach. It has a throwback charm with more space than you expect from the photos. It's location is nice because it's quieter and away from the sea and activity (but still just a 4 block walk to the water). The listing may say 1 bed, but there are actually 2! Tao is a great host that communicated well and even has an amazing guide to experience all the incredible art installations and sites around town. I highly recommend staying here and following Tao's wonderful guide.

    Bradford2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Tao's vintage house in Bombay Beach is absolutely stunning. We had the most wonderful time staying there and he was super friendly and responsive. Would highly recommend staying here and exploring what Bombay Beach has to offer. I'll be going back for sure!

  • Tao's place is by far the best air bnb experience I've had. I was not specificially looking for this destination, but it came up while browsing for other options in the Palm Springs area. I was so intrigued by Tao's description of the location that I booked a stay there just to see it for myself. Tao's place is not only wonderful for the space he provides, which is secure and clean, but for the fascinating setting it's in. I would recommend anyone considering coming here to google a brief history of the Salton Sea and Bombay Beach to fully appreciate the stories it has to tell in the present day. This area is so thought provoking it will certainly have a lasting influence on me. It is an inhabited ghost town. It is a picture of desolation that still has a pulse of human resilience. I struggled to find exactly the right word to describe Bombay Beach, but in the end the word is simply "poetic." The visual displays of repurposed relics and other creative displays that abound are amazing when seeing them surrounded at the same time by abandoned and decaying structures. Thank you Tao for such a one of a kind and eye opening experience.

    Virginia2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Taos place was very different and unique. Kind of took you back in time. Loved the locals at Ski Inn we definitely put a dollar on the ceiling. Bombay is like no place we’ve ever stayed before, and if you go there stay at one of Taos place and you must stop at salvation mountain!

    Dixie2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Phenomenal

    Ryan2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The coziness of the place is welcoming and has you feel at home. It’s totally quiet out there and at peace with the dazzling night sky. The experience in Bombay was absolutely amazing, we learned a lot on the history. It’s a spot to absolutely stop by and check out. A night away from the city is always wonderful.

  • Anthony is an awesome host. He accommodated our needs and request. The home had all necessary items we needed. Perfect area for peace, quiet, & relaxing time. My family will definitely be coming back to Anthony's home in the future.

    Manuel2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent host - very responsive and hospitable. Amazing views, especially the moment the sun breaks the horizon across the water. Don’t miss the beautiful drive up to Borrego Springs.

    Amanda2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place . The host is very helpful. Recommended

    Tanvir Ahmed2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Anthony’s lake house in Salton City was great. The views truly are beautiful as it felt great to be secluded. I enjoyed wine at night with beautiful sunsets and coffee/ hot chocolate in the morning to beautiful sunrises. I cooked my entire Christmas dinner in the kitchen which was helpful with all the cookware, enjoyed Christmas movies and music. Although it was just myself, I can say this is the place for entertaining as well. If you’re alone then you really get the quietness and serenity needed. I will definitely stay here again. Lastly, I agree with Anthony, this place is not for the faint of heart. I like luxury but don’t value it 24/7. I’m good with simplicity as well which is why this place worked for me. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did!

    Hollis2019-12-28T00:00:00Z

    Hongbao2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Kimberly2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay. We wanted a trip that would take us off the beaten path and provide us with some unique moments. This place led to all of those things. The house is spacious and has lots of windows, providing a nice view of the water. There was coffee in the kitchen, which was a nice touch. We enjoyed our stay!

    Bombay Beach style at its finest. “They paint the houses these ridiculous colors,” said Commander Wacko, head of the American Legion, about the artists coming to Bombay Beach lately, to a reporter for The Guardian newspaper. We certainly do, Commander...We most certainly do. Featuring photographs by the great Robert Stivers. One master bedroom for a couple, two tiny rooms with single beds. One bathroom. 3 wall AC’s. Space heaters.
  • In my humble opinion, the Salton Sea is one of the most unique and peaceful places in the US. Please do your research on the area to fully appreciate it. Being a sea in the middle of the desert, it was a popular tourist destination in the 50’s and 60’s but due to environmental conditions homeowners and vacationers fled the area. Today the Salton sea is a rare tribute to the past. Bombay beach, where the property is located, is a (mostly) deserted town with streets upon streets of mid century homes and structures. The town is quiet and post apocalyptic but not entirely abandoned. The sea is beautiful and serene yet eerily silent. Tao’s home is an amazing way to experience this very special area. You will feel like you walked into a time capsule from the 1960’s. He’s preserved the charm of this little home impeccably while enhancing the property with some amazing art features. You will be just steps away from the staggering sea and the rooftop seating area is a wonderful surprise. For anyone who is into urban x or perhaps just just looking to get off the grid for a bit, this property is quirky and charming in the best way possible. The history buff in me highly recommends :)

    Nancie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend any of Taos air bnbs if you are looking for a creative trip away!

    Kitty2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve visited Bombay beach/Salton sea numerous times but actually the first time staying in the midst of the community which is the best way to experience it. Mornings & evenings are both uniquely beautiful out there. The Zig Zag house was great and better than expected. Will definitely stay there again and highly recommend

    Eric2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay at the Zig Zag! Tao was super responsive to a blown fuse and had it repaired within an hour. The sunset was stunning, so DO NOT miss it! Check it out from the roof of the Zig Zag and then head down to the beach to see the sea swallow the sun! Will definitely come back!

    Laura2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We rented both zig zag and the institute and were very happy with the spaces, which are right across the street from each other! Bombay Beach is on an intersection of existence, not quite of this world or the next. It is extreme, beautiful, strange and at times uncomfortable- though if you find yourself available to lean in to the occasional discomfort (weather related or otherwise), you will find the rewards to be great. Do yourself a favor and stay more than one night, find art to admire, walk the beach, check out slab city, and meet other artists, locals and adventure seekers at the Ski Inn. Check the weather before you go and come prepared with provisions! Tao has great suggestions on what to check out (be careful not to accidentally wander onto someone’s yard as art installations and quirky private property can look similar) and is a very responsive and gracious host! You are sure to have a unique experience.

    Melody2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very unique art community stay

    Kimaya2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We have been to Bombay Beach numerous times as we love to come out and visit the local people that we have become friends with. The ZigZag is in a great location that is literally directly across the street from the Salton Sea. Everyone in this little town is very nice and friendly and every chance we get, we love to come stay at Tao's as he has great communication and is a very friendly guy.

    Michelle2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The zigzag house is so quirky and fun! We loved sitting on the rooftop to view the sunset and check out the installation and lights at night. There are so many places and things to explore in the neighborhood, and checking out the Salton Sea was so fun as the property is pretty much right in front of it. The place itself is cozy and homey, with so many funky touches added to the home. Definitely read through the books on the coffee table, that was one of our favorite parts. The front deck is the perfect spot to hang out and watch the sunset at night. We really enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and definitely wish we could have stayed longer. Slab City is a short drive from the property and we definitely recommend going out there if you can. This place is truly one of a kind and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in a unique space full of art and inspiration!

    The Bombay Beach Institute of Particle Physics, Metaphysics, & International Relations. An epicenter of the Bombay Beach Biennale, featuring photo exhibits, elegant and lush gardens, and comfortable air conditioned interior spaces. Great for events, shoots, or simply as a base to explore and enjoy the renaissance happening in the area. ART IN THE INSTITUTE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN OR PEOPLE OFFENDED BY NUDITY OR OTHER PROVOCATIVE IMAGERY.
  • Cool place. Great neighborhood. Very cinematic. Felt like I was in a movie. 🖤🖤🖤

    Eve2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tao's place was fantastic! We had a few hiccups while getting settled, but even at a late hour, Tao was incredibly responsive and helped correct things immediately. The place is not just a stay, it's an experience. My only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer. This place and the town around it needs far more than one night to fully experience.

  • A delightful stay at the Institute! Only downside was that we only stayed one night. Didn't know much about Bombay beach - don't arrive late and hungry! - and enjoyed taking in all of the artwork. The crowd at Ski Inn was very good natured, and the sunrise along the water is an image I don't think I'll ever forget. Hope to return soon. Thank you Tao for the hospitality and the beautiful space! Very inspiring :)

    Gloria2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Institution is an absolute must-see. The entire property is covered with incredible and somewhat bizarre art that, once you see, you can't imagine not experiencing before. The house is full of fantastic art as well ("Spiked" was my favorite). Not only is the property incredible, but the town itself is full of unique art pieces and the nicest human beings I've ever encountered. If you go, you must visit the Ski Inn to say hi to Steve, as well as the American Legion - Tommy is great! I definitely plan to visit again!

    Kyla2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Hands down most bizarre and magical Airbnb sojourn of my life. Staying here or the ZigZag house across the street (I’ve now stayed in both) are the only way to see Bombay Beach. Bring soap! ❤️

    Emily2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Stunningly weird place to stay that is very appropriate for the location. The actual amenities are pretty pedestrian but that's not why you are staying here! Be surrounded by art and good vibes!

    Adam2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place in an amazing place. I went to enjoy the uniqueness of Bombay Beach and got every bit. This is not the Hilton. If that is what you want go elsewhere. This is a great taste of the art and ecology of the Salton Sea. The yard, the galleries, the housing are an outstanding experience. Go to the Ski Inn for great food and talk. Don't visit without walking the town and the shore.

  • A lovely, quiet little place on the east side of the salton sea.

    Robin2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The pourcupine lodge was homey, quite, and spacious. The stocked kitchen is a God - send if you are bringing a lot of food (which I recommend, outside of the cafe on the resort options are scarce out there in the desert). The cafe is nice if you'd like to get something to eat. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to get out there to the Salton Sea. Pam is a good host who responds quickly!

  • Ken's place is awesome and he's very accommodating. Perfect location for off-roading and there are various hikes to choose from that aren't too far.

  • Casa Off-road is a true paradise in the desert! If you are a desert/off-roader person this place has all the amenities your looking for and then some! It was awesome to be able to go explore ocotillo wells all day and then come back to a nice warm shower, full kitchen, comfy couches, and great beds! The back yard was a treat to be able to have a place to relax outside, cook up some steaks and just hang out! Ken has done a fantastic job with labeling everything and making sure all his guests have everything they need. We will definitely be going back!

    Corey2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We love Ken's place. Very clean and fully equipped. We've stayed here twice & looking forward to our next stay.

  • Future travelers, at Casa Off Road you can expect a home that is a diamond in the rough (Ocatillo) Ken and his wife have made Casa Off Road such a wonderful place to get away to that I look forward to the next time work and family have time to go. Whoever does the cleaning does a great job! I wish he or she was local to My area :) if I could sum my experience up in three words it would be Great Great Great Happy travels!

    Kenny2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kenneth’s house was perfect! It was clean and set up like you would expect a four star hotel! The layout is great! And the private enclosed backyard with a hottub was just what we needed after a long day of hiking in Anza borrego. We would stay there again.

    A hidden gem on the North Shore of the Salton Sea, this custom mid-century modern home, offers stunning desert views and solitude. Ideal for travelers wanting to get away and explore sights like Salvation Mountain, Bombay Beach, and the Salton Sea State Park. Close to Coachella Festival, and Palm Desert.
    This unique, modern era home offers a nostalgic glimpse into the past history of the Salton Sea. The kitchen, dining, and living spaces are open with window views of the Chocolate Mountains and the Salton Sea. It is a pleasant and peaceful experience to view the changing light in the landscape as time passes throughout the day; Sunsets and sunrises across the Salton Sea are spectacular. The Sea house has one king size bed, one queen, one full, and a sofa bed. There are no square rooms in the home, and everything is designed with a dynamic balance of angles. A wonderful experience for any mid-century enthusiast. There is a patio just outside the dining area that provides a nice place to sit and enjoy the brilliant desert mornings or warm desert nights. We are a short drive from Coachella.
    North Shore is a sparsely populated rural community overlooking the Salton Sea. One of the unique aspects of our neighborhood is the rich blend of cultures. You will see a mix of retirees as well as many families who live and work in the Coachella Valley. Once a vacation destination, now it is a close knit community of working class people. We thoroughly enjoy the rural, uncomplicated, and unpretentious nature of the area along with the slower pace of life that often reminds us of a time long gone. The neighbors immediately surrounding the home are wonderful. Some homes in the neighborhood are well kept and others are not, however, this is all a part of life in the changing landscape of the Salton Sea. The neighborhood is safe and usually very quiet except for occasional music heard from nearby neighborhood evening events. There is a train that comes through regularly, and we enjoy the nostalgic sound.
  • Best place to stay by Salton Sea!

    Kyle2018-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great area, impressive views, very nice house, friendly hosts!

    Steven (Steve)2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny's place is uniquely awesome. It has retained its historic feel, including a working record player with period music. The desert grades are beautiful. The view is fantastic. In fact, it seemed odd having a big TV in the same room as the giant floor to ceiling windows. I'd stay there again if I'm in the area. Very peaceful.

    Marcia2018-03-25T00:00:00Z

    Jeanette2018-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Unique and special, this home throws your back in time with it's perfect mid century details and amazing Salton Sea views! Such a great find for where we needed to stay. Close to many activities around the area such as hiking, dirt biking, exploring, etc! Host responded fast to all my questions and made check in/out easy! Can't wait to stay again :)

  • There is a beautiful view of the Salton Sea. The Sunrise over the water was fantastic! We were also fortunate to be there during a full moon. Our visit was for an off road event, ‘this home is perfect. We drove our SXS from the home into the desert. Luis was a great host & we will definitely return for another visit.

  • Perfect spot for someone looking to get away for a weekend. We rented ATV’s and stayed gone the entire stay pretty much. The RV was awesome too. I really enjoyed the remoteness of it. At night the sky is clear and you see a lot of things that you normally wouldn’t in the city. Its dead silent at night when we were there. That was something different. Silence. If you appreciate those kind of things then this is the spot. It’s not too remote because you have stores 5 mins away so it’s the best of both worlds. I would like to stay again when I get some free time. Thanks Courtney!
