One block from the Salton Sea, this authentic house is the perfect spot to explore one of the coolest and most eccentric towns in the United States. Bombay Beach is a photographer’s and filmmaker’s 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.

Lo spazio
Dear guests,
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 close our AirBnB until mid-May. Than we change to a minimum stay for 2 or more nights, closed normally Mondays and Tuesdays, until the pandemic last, to protect you and our local cleaning staff. If you want to stay longer than 5 nights or Monday/Tuesday, please contact us. We are very sad about this, because we love hosting people, and we as well as our local staff depend on the income. We hope for your understanding and would be pleased to welcome you as our guests.

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.

Accesso per gli ospiti
The main house can accommodate up to 6 (max. 7) people. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed. The whole place was originally designed in an open fashion and we decided to keep it this was. So the "master bedroom” is separated from the living room/kitchen by a thick curtain and has open-air openings that lookout into the living room, that have blinds that can be closed for privacy. The second bedroom has two twin XL beds. There is a full sleeper couch and two additional twin XL rollout beds, plus the long couch in the living room that is ok to crush on for a night. There is lots of closet space throughout.
Big groups or movie-crews can sleep two more in our small „Vargas Paradise“ apartment in the back of the house, which has a separate entrance, own patio and a connecting door to the front part of the house, that is locked normally. "Vargas Paradise" is rented separately.
The kitchen has all we ever needed, from the electric water kettle, french press, toaster, blender and a cast iron pan to lots of plates, cups and glasses. Sorry, no microwave. Normally there should be also some coffee, tea, sugar, oil, salt and pepper. If something is missing please contact us.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
- Please note that there are two apartments in this house. The big front part "Bombay Beach Authentic House" and the attached small "Vargas Paradise" apartment in the back of the house. They are separate units with separate entrances. There is a door from the kitchen to "Vargas Paradise". This door is always locked (only when you rent both apartments, we can unlock it). As walls are thin however, sometimes you might hear neighbors.
- This is a desert environment and an old house. We do everything to keep it clean, but when the wind blows there is always some dust that enters the house. It’s just part of Bombay Beach.
- Just a note of caution: I got a report that on the other side of the street some drug addicts are squatting sometimes. They have always been harmless and we never had any issues with them. I wouldn't leave expensive stuff laying around on the terrace or leave the door open while you explore the town. But honestly we have stayed here many month, photographed all over town in the middle of the night and never had any issues or felt threatened.
- There are a lot of Chihuahuas, dogs in town, not always locked in the neighbors properties. Normally they only bark loud when you walk on the streets.
Please close the gate to our property always. Thanks!

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 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, the Music Festivals in Indio (Coachella, Stagecoach), 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.

I am a visual storyteller and multimedia producer at the Bombay Flying Club, mainly working on my own long-term, in-depth, documentary photographic projects around the world. Currently I am working with my partner Frauke Huber on a set of multimedia documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land: White Gold investigates the social and environmental effects of global cotton production, while our new visual research project LandRush analyzes the impact of large-scale agro-investments on rural economies and land rights around the world. Both series are part of the collaborative art and research project World Of Matter. In 2010 I started Aggreys Dream, a project supporting a school in a slum in Mombasa, Kenya. Besides my photographic practice I am teaching photography, film and multimedia storytelling around the world.

Durante il tuo soggiorno
I am in my house about 3-4 months a year. John is from Brawley and visits regularly.
I fall in love with Bombay Beach and its wonderful people while working on my ongoing documentary project about the Colorado River and the drying Salton Sea. So I bought and renovated one of the nicest houses here that stood empty for nearly a decade. Now my wife and I use it as a base for our ongoing documentary work, for editing films and writing as well as for a film and photography workshop program I am building.
