Far from crowds and traffic, a place outfitted for private and luxurious relaxation, is the inimitable Tiny Tiki Trailer Zone. Open sky, 360 degree dramatic valley and city views and sandstone cliffs will surround you.
See Pictures! Design Driven Travel!
Please check map! Where is Chatsworth Lake Manor? Located in NW San Fernando Valley, it feels remote and for some is too remote.... yet we're close enough for exploring Los Angeles and Ventura. Our 1954 Spartan Manor (Model name--like an Airstream) trailer is fully equipped for your enjoyment.
"Gypsy", our 24 ft. vintage trailer has a private double bed, storage space and a bathroom with shower. A custom couch, dining area and library are in the forward "observation lounge". The kitchen has a 3 burner propane stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, refrigerator, pots, pans, cutlery and vintage dinnerware.
Outdoor living at its best! The curtained shade structure has an amazingly romantic canopied (outdoor) double bed, available May 1st to November 1st. TTT-Zone cliff-top patio offers an outdoor dining table seats 4, 2 chaises, 2 armchairs and a loveseat with 2 shade umbrellas for your private use day or night. Take an afternoon nap, sip a serene morning tea or coffee or luxuriously dine al fresco. Inside "Babe" the 13' trailer are 2 large desks and storage, it is available year round to use as a writing or art studio, computer room, for singles sleeping quarters, or dressing room. Both trailers are fully electric and have A/C.
Due to no phone land-line we are somewhat off-grid. Bluetooth sound system, speakers and 24" Smart TV with local channels only. Although there is great wifi reception with router supplied, TTT>Zone internet experience may not include what you expect or are accustomed to. Hot Spot-Router supplied for regular computer use =easy. Streaming movies, likely not. So come, enjoy, and unplug.
The narrow, steep 1 1/2 mile gated driveway is an old paved road with no guard rails. Not recommended for road sissies. Gate code access provided. Close to 118 major freeway, and near north end of Topanga Blvd. Free outdoor parking.
2 Night MINIMUM. 12 Night MAXIMUM, 10% Discount over 6 nights stay.

This desert ( it is So Cal, after all-- so expect Summer Heat!!) luxury camping experience is sited at natures doorstep with miles of breathtaking hiking trails to enjoy --tag along with us and Bella in the cool morning air or use maps provided!

Vintage trailer afficionadoes: Did you always want to sleep in an Airstream? They are the Mercedes' of the vintage trailer world. Spartans, however, are like an old Bentley and are more collectible due to unrivalled mid-century design, monocoque aircraft construction and beautiful real wood paneling and cabinetry throughout. Our trailers are restored and kept true to their original beauty and function.
The TTT>Zone is one of a kind, with entirely irreplaceable custom built furnishings sourced from recycled, reclaimed and repurposed materials. Collector's item designer textiles and ceramics, and real 1950's decor, all seen only here for the guests delight. Please be careful in the Tiny Tiki Trailer Zone. Enjoy it respectfully as if it were your own Grandmother's treasured hideaway.
Although well equipped, please remember "Gypsy " is just a travel trailer and about the size of a private train car. To an extra large size or very tall person it may feel cramped inside. The bed is a double, not a queen size. (75" x 54" ) Cozy living quarters and 'character' are part of the experience, like a Tiny House.

Nearby: In historic Chatsworth town restaurants, bars and shopping are 3 miles drive away. Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood are 27 miles away. Disneyland is 65 miles away, Universal City 26 miles, and Malibu beaches are 24 miles away; all depending on traffic. Stoney Point world class rock climbing is 15 minutes, Magic Mountain 6 Flags and the Reagan Library are 1/2 hour away.
If you choose this location you must have a drive car of your own or a rental. PLEASE NOTE GOOGLE MAPS does NOT get YOU to our property! We will provide you with detailed driving directions or escort you for the last mile.
There are 5 local watch dogs: 50 yards our Bella, 100 yards 2 dogs, 300 yards 2 other dogs; all fenced in, but alert to coyotes and other wild critters. You will hear dogs barking during your stay here. About once per year we see a rattlesnake and a tarantula. But not at the same time, and sometimes they are dead already.
**No Kids, No Pets: Children over age 10 only must be pre-approved by host prior to booking. Unsafe place for younger children or pets due no containment, no child proofing, wild animals, unfenced cliff and steep terrain.
** Sorry, No Self Check In. The trailer Zone needs some personal introduction. Unlocking the trailer will be done by us while welcoming you.
Your hosts Julia and Michael live next door in their own home, should you have any needs or questions. After meeting you and showing you around, we can fade away or become pals, it's up to you. We hope your stay at the "Tiny Tiki Trailer Zone" will become a cherished memory. We are flexible and your contentment is our primary concern.

My husband and I are in our 50's and live near Los Angeles. We have a beautiful dog. We love travel, exploring on foot, sailing and custom building. We are gourmet cooks and love entertaining. It's quite fun to have friends over. We feel blessed to have each other and our own peaceful corner of California.
