California Tiny Homes – Vacation Rentals

Summer is fast approaching! With break around the corner, if you’re planning on taking a vacation this year, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about what options are available for a daycation, weekend get-away, or a longer term vacay.

With all the talk and media recently about Tiny Homes, Shipping Container Living, and Tree Houses, I thought why not do some research to see if these even exist in Southern California. And you know what? They sure do. Not only can someone rent a tiny home, but what a unique experience can it present itself to be.

Living here in the San Gabriel Valley, we are fortunate enough to easily access such hidden gems near the beach, desert, or even the mountains.

By all means, the following isn’t an all-inclusive list, but check-out these fun options to get your summer planning started. For more ideas, check out AirBnB.
