TINY TIKI RETRO HIDEAWAY
Great Time at the Tiki Hideaway
My wife and I so much enjoyed our time at the Tiki Hideaway. The view from the Hideaway and its private large patio is stunning. We watched distant planes pass through the clouds as they took off and landed at LAX. The Santa Monica mountains are in the background and a large open valley lies before you. The trailer is lovingly decorated, down to the pounded-aluminum basin in the bathroom. And Julia was nearby in case we needed anything. She was wonderful to talk with about the history of the area and its geology. Recommended!
