This one-of-a-kind completely renovated classic trailer is the perfect getaway accommodation. Situated on a 5+ acre Tuscan style estate only 4 mi. from downtown Ashland and 13 mi. from Medford airport you'll be surrounded by spectacular views, an abundance of fine food, entertainment (including the world famous Shakespeare and Britt Festivals), nightlife, endless family-friendly and outdoor activities, day trips to destination wineries, redwoods and Crater Lake, and access to exclusive trails.
A 24’ 1977 Airstream that has been completely rebuilt by hand in every detail and lovingly renamed Arte Maris (Latin for "art from the sea"). Gutted and re-designed from the frame up including extending the entire height by about a foot, this gorgeous custom travel trailer feels amazingly spacious and is equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home. Features include: a fully functional galley kitchen with large sink, four burner gas stove, range hood, oven, fridge & freezer, solar panels, convertible sofa bed, dining table, heater and AC, on-demand hot water heater, shower, a small bathtub (we call it the dunking station), bathroom sink, closet/dresser with drawers, and a super comfortable and eco-friendly natural latex memory foam queen size bed. There is a surprising amount of storage everywhere. Please note the bathroom and bedroom are in the same room but they can be separated from the living room/galley area either by closing the curtains or opening the closet door.
It was a fulfillment of a dream to build this space and live/travel in it for a couple of years. We loved our time in it and hope you will too. If you are interested, we made a short video of approx. 30 min documenting the entire renovation process.
Outside Arte Maris, you can enjoy the spectacular views sitting at your private table and chairs under a beautiful shade tree.
The 5-acre property is gated and fenced. There is ample parking for at least two cars immediately adjacent to the site as well as space for an RV and other cars.
There is private access from the property to exclusive trails, please ask us for directions.
We have two bicycles available for guests use.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy meeting our guests from all walks of life and welcoming them upon arrival as well as giving a short briefing on how the different systems in the Airstream work. We are available should you have any questions or need anything to help make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable but we respect your privacy and consider the Airstream and immediate surrounding area private for our guests.

We are a family of 5. Josh was born in New Jersey and grew up in Florida; Giulia is from Rome, Italy. Our toddler son Zephyr is a happy and busy little guy and his sweet twin sisters joined us in June.
We met on the West Coast collaborating on an art project for Burning Man and after a few years of traveling around the world for work and pleasure we decided to settle in Talent, OR and start our family here.
We enjoy meeting new people and sharing different cultures and that is why we decided to open our house to guests. We like to garden, create things, play with children, cook good food, laugh and hang out with friends. We're easy going and like to keep it casual and make our guests feel at home.
