    We stayed in a park nearby during the rainy season and liked the area a lot. This is close in and subject to flooding as the sea rise will affect the area so the short term is fine. If you have an RV finding a park ANYWHERE in central California much less coastal is almost impossible less than $900 a month so THIS is a great find.

    I love that this exists since it seems that places to actually live long term in a tiny house are scarce. What a wonderful place to stay for a while but I have a worry about calling this a tiny house community or village when it is obviously an RV park. To me, community or village denotes somewhere that has some permanence. Maybe not that each tiny house would stay for a long time but that the place would exist in an organized form for a long time. I’m not saying that the “Bohemian” look in the photos is bad but if creating more and more of those tiny house communities is a serious goal then how they appear must appeal to both city governments as well as city citizens. Personally I hate the look of traditional trailer or mobile home parks. They are sterile places without character so that must be avoided, too. One thing that needs to be a rule is to have a more finished look to each tiny home (skirts around the bottom, tiny houses evenly spaced or at least creatively spaced). Boats and other pull-behinds need to be stored away from where the tiny houses are lined up. Nice big trees (eventually) and other green areas are a must, too. The rag-tag look must be improved upon if those small communities or villages are to achieve wide appeal. I’m sure that the rougher, less organized look does appeal to enough people that those have a place in the formula, too, but most cities want to avoid having them look like temporary camps with a hodge podge of vehicles and tiny houses are just scattered around. There are many who would love to be able to settle down in tiny house communities and they need to appeal to those who are used to regular neighborhoods…without being boring. Down-sizing seems to be more than just a trend and cities need to keep that in mind when approving of housing areas but tiny house communities must also make accommodation to what cities will approve of.

      But isn’t a Tiny Home really a 50’s trailer updated for the 21st Century, size wise, maybe not in uniqueness, but still a trailer.

        No, tiny houses are more like Manufactured Houses. They’re actually built like houses and meant for residential usage. Tiny houses can even be placed on foundations where it’s legal by either having no relevant restrictions or by adopting the 2018 IRC ICC with Appendix Q to have building code for tiny houses on foundations.

        Most are placed on wheels just to get around the high cost and restrictions that would otherwise prevent them from just building a more affordable home on a foundation.

        Besides, they can also be put on skids, instead of a trailer, to be movable but placed on temporary foundations, or in an elevated platform to be used like a tree house, or on a floating platform to be used as a house boat, etc. Along with other types of tiny homes like Shed Conversions, Container homes, Yurts, etc. So they’re not all going to fit the stereotype…

        Places like California just have a lot of restrictions and really only allow tiny houses as ADU’s or secondary structures in addition to a traditional main home. So using options like RV Parks are one of the few ways they can get around those restrictions but most would prefer to just have them on foundations.

        Most don’t even move them more than 1-3 times and only a small minority are actually nomadic… But with issues like the fires in California, having a home you can move in at least an emergency may start opening more options in that state…

    I love how in Mexifornia those are called “Legal” tiny house communities. Here in the south we call them trailer parks, or tornado magnets.
