How retiree’s tiny house earns her an extra $3K a month

Tiny house

Laurel built a tiny home on her beautiful property in Northern California. She rents it out on Airbnb and is a proud “super host” to the hundreds of guests that have stayed in the tiny house.

Laurel owns the surrounding 36 acres of land but chose the tiny home’s location specifically for the gorgeous sunsets and views of Mount Lassen. Guests can even enjoy the view from the spacious outdoor shower or dining area.

She ended up purchasing the tiny home from Facebook Marketplace after looking all over the country. It was partially built and had been sitting unfinished in a contractor’s shop for a few years before Laurel purchased it and turned it into her dream rental.

The tiny home is on a gooseneck trailer. One major benefit to the trailer is it provides a sleeping area that guests don’t have to climb a ladder to access. The bathroom is also easily accessible with a full-size shower and a flushing toilet, both of which are rare finds in tiny homes!

The kitchen is perfect for guests who love to cook or entertain. Main features include a three-person bar, full-size refrigerator, stovetop, oven, and a huge sink. The bar even faces a beautiful view of Mount Lassen for morning coffee or evening drinks.

Laurel says the tiny details are what her guests appreciate and comment most about her tiny home. Small design choices and quality-of-life improvements keep her guests coming back again and again.

She truly enjoys providing wonderful experiences for her guests and hopes to host for many more years. Her tiny home has created not only a passion project on Airbnb but also substantial passive income to aid her through retirement.
