YOUR RETRO ADVENTURE IS ONLY 3 BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH! Glamp in style in our brand new 2019 Retro Riverside Trailer modeled after the Teardrop or Canned Ham trailers that were popular from the 1930's to the 1960's. The Retro RV by the Sea, "Miss Bettie Blue" is sitting in the lush backyard of a matching turquoise 1930's home. Enjoy a perfect blend of vintage style and deluxe amenities. The trailer sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids. Free parking space. We welcome everybody to our home.

The space
This retro trailer has everything you need for a fun and easy San Diego beach vacation. The ultra comfortable Queen walk-around bed sleeps two and the kitchen table converts into a small twin size pull-out bed that can sleep one small adult or two small children. Miss Bettie is also equipped with a dining area, a bathroom and VERY SMALL shower, refrigerator and freezer, ice cold A/C, high speed Wi-Fi, TV with Amazon Firestick, dvd, and stereo. The kitchen is stocked with a coffee maker, tea and coffee, microwave, and basic kitchen needs like cups, plates, wine opener and silverware. We also have bath towels and beach towels as well as boogie boards. Miss Bettie is tucked into a private backyard with your own entrance from the alley with your own small parking space right outside the gate. Please not that the parking spot may not fit long vehicles, but street parking is always available nearby.

The RV is located near a very busy street and under the flight path. Planes take off from 6:30am-11:00pm. We have provided ear plugs and noise machines for your convenience. Make sure to check out the gorgeous mural right behind the RV for your perfect Instagram photo op!

*** For extended family/friends, Retro RV by the Sea is located directly behind the Green Door Cottage by the Sea. It sleeps up to 4 people. It is listed on Airbnb under “Green Door Cottage” and that house is dog friendly! You can have your whole family stay steps away from each other all at the same fantastic location, and with an off-street parking space. Please contact me for more info and I’m happy to send you a link to that listing.

Guest access
Trailer, backyard, and free parking for 1 car onsite

Other things to note
San Diego Airport is not far away and this location is located near a very busy street and is in a flight path of planes taking off between 6:30am -11pm.
