Interaction with Guests
Our guests love the privacy of their own space. We live down the walk from the camper, so if you need anything just give me a call/text. Other than that, it really depends on the guest. We've had guests who we barely saw and others who joined us for dinner.
Lincoln Heights is a family focused, working class neighborhood. It's not Beverly Hills, but it is comfortable and the real LA.
Our property is a short drive drive to the galleries, shopping and nightlife of downtown and Little Tokyo. We're close to the amazing Huntington Gardens in San Marino.
We're one 'hood over from Artsy Highland Park - where you can enjoy browsing cafes, shops, and bars on York blvd. Don't miss the second Saturday Art Walk!
We're walking distance to a bus stop, super market, restaurants and shops, although I'd recommend a car - it's L.A., baby! 20 minutes drive to Hollywood, 30 minutes drive to LAX and Santa Monica.
Other Things to Note
Our camper is t.v. free, but has an awesome dvd collection, so bring your laptop computer and enjoy!
Check in may be flexible, depending on schedule.
No smoking please.
Let me know in advance if you will need the second bed.
Remember the L.A. City Hotel tax = 14%
Remember to leave the keys upon departure.
Being water/electricity conscious is appreciated.
Please do not put coffee grinds down the sink. Either put them in the garden or leave them for me.
stayed one week and that week was awesome! Tema knows the city very well, id suggest not going against her recommendations when asking where to best whatever you want. I accidentally did and regretted it (accidentally went to a bad doughnut shop). Moving on.. Tema was also very quick to answer any question my friend and I had. The trailer is much roomier then it looks at 1st glance, storage spots everywhere. The people were very welcoming, felt right at home. Superhost for a reason! If i go back i would for sure try and book this again
Tema was a fabulous host and very helpful with recommendations around the neighborhood.
The place is very unique and has its own character. The view is beautiful and relaxing. The camper itself is small but everything you expected from a house can be found inside. Tema is a great host, though we didn't meet for long, but she is very responsive and helpful.
It's been lovely staying at Tema's in their retro trailer. The deck and the flowers make the stay paradisiacal and Tema, Zoe and Dan are very laid back, very welcoming hosts with lots of humor. We'd love to stay with them again.
The trailer is incredibly cool. I can't get over how going into it is like stepping back in time. The interior is magnificent and the view is awesome. Tema and her trusty assistant make you feel right at home. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have a unique experience.
房东人很好，很容易交流。最开始我们找不到车位，房东回来之后帮助我们找到了车位~ 房源在一个小山丘上，坐在车上的话不是很容易找到，我们是步行找到的~ 感觉整个街区也比较安全，晚上蛮安静的~
What a wonderful visit! Tema and her family were fun, helpful and welcoming and we loved staying in this charming time-capsule trailer! It was simple to find and we easily found parking night and day. The trailer was small, clean and cozy with a space heater that kept us warm during a downpour. We had fresh muesli and milk for breakfast and Tema offered me a lovely glass of wine. The trailer is private, the main bed is very comfy and my five year old son thought the dinette bed was great but I found it a little bumpy where the seats fold - but you love this trailer because it's old school! Thanks for a great visit! We would do it again in a minute!

About the Host, Tema
Originally from the East Coast (NJ, NY, Boston) I'm a Production Designer and I teach Art Direction (backgrounds and props for movies). My husband is a props and fine art fabricator - originally from New Zealand. We've both been in LA over 10 years and love it!
I love to garden and cook. My husband loves to tinker and surf the web. We have a mellow first grader who loves to draw and dance. We mostly keep to ourselves in order to give you privacy, however, we're happy to give you recommendations for stuff to do: museums, eateries, farmers markets, and local gems that aren't in guide books. My cell is always on, so if you need anything while you're staying with us I'm only a text, email, or whisper away.
We're omnivores, but are used to vegan and vegetarian diets as our good friends all seem to be vegan, lactose intolerant, or gluten free. We know where to get what you want for your special diet, or can make a quick phone call to find out!
Having travelled quite a bit, I've always preferred b and b's to stale, boring chains. Why stay in a cookie cutter hotel when you can stay somewhere local and meet fun people? Total local immersion makes a trip that much more memorable. We hope that you'll enjoy your stay with us.
