Her Gooseneck Tiny Home Brings in $3k a Month in Airbnb Income
For Laurel, her gooseneck tiny home Airbnb provides not only a chance to earn another income, but also a great opportunity to get to know people from different places and express her social side.
The beautiful gooseneck trailer conversion is located on her 36-acre property with a view of the mountain. There’s a deck equipped with a dining area, bird feeders that attract local birds for those who enjoy bird-watching, and an outdoor shower that's perfect for taking in the morning sunrise.
The home is located in a private part of the property - meaning you can feel free to use the outdoor shower - but because Laurel lives on the property, she is always happy to come over if guests need anything.
Laurel chose to build a tiny home because they don’t need building permits and because she loves watching tiny home videos like the one that she now stars in:
The home was designed with comfort in mind: The stairs going into the home have a low profile to make them easy to climb for all ages, while the awning over the door accommodates travelers who may be struggling with suitcases in the rain.
The daybed couch has a comfortable mattress to provide additional guests with a good night’s sleep. The main bedroom is 4 steps over the gooseneck, but the 6ft7 ceilings make it easy to stand.
This gooseneck tiny home also has a flushing toilet, which is a real luxury for a tiny home setting. Laurel sees the bathroom as an essential part of the travel experience and put a lot of thought into it, from the large shower and glass vessel sink to the little bathrobes she provides for guests.
