Tiny Tranquility park is a coastal Tiny House community located in Oregon featuring over 35 long term Tiny House parking spots and a half dozen nightly rentals. I had a chance to visit the park, stay in one of the nightly rentals, and interview the park owner (and a few other folks as well). Read on to learn what makes this Tiny House community so amazing.

What is so great about this Coastal Tiny House Community?
1. Importance Placed on Community Spaces
The property that is now Tiny Tranquility was originally a rundown nursery in really terrible condition. Josh, the owner, purchased the dilapidated land and fixed it up. During the renovation, he repurposed a few of the original buildings into shared community spaces for the residents of his future Tiny House community. For example, the park has a beautiful indoor garden for growing flowers, fruit, and vegetables. Other community spaces include: an exercise room, mail room, yoga area, tv room, laundry room, private storage area for residents, game room, library, outdoor barbecue, large shared kitchen with an ocean view, and a few rentable spaces for small businesses.
2. Beautiful Location
The park is located on the central Oregon coast, near the small town of Waldport. Residents have beach access via a quick 5 minute walk, as well as some amazing restaurants and local shops that are only a few miles away. The small picturesque town of Yachats is just a 10 minute drive and offers hiking trails and other tourist activities
3. Long Term Parking ONLY
Tiny Tranquility wants to be a community. In order to do that, they need long term residents that will develop relationships over time. They do not allow overnight parking in their spaces; Instead you have to rent a spot for at least a month. In doing so, there is less turnover in the park.
4. Few Nightly Rentals
There are a few Tiny Houses and vintage trailers available for nightly rentals at this coastal Tiny House community. This allows residents to invite their friends and family to visit without having to squeeze them into their Tiny Home. Josh doesn’t want to add any more nightly rentals to the property, so they do book up fast!
5. Great Spacing Between Tiny Homes
The park offers a decent amount of space in between Tiny Homes; Josh could have packed them in for more $$$, but he chose not to. Everyone has a small yard and room to have a porch or patio. Of course, this also means that the limited amount of parking spaces filled quickly. There is now a wait list for future tentants.
They’re Booked Solid (+ a long wait list)
When I spoke with Josh in June of 2020, the park was completely full and he had a wait list of people interested in parking their Tiny Homes at Tiny Tranquility. This obviously means he’s doing something right! Josh said he realizes there is quite a need for more parks like the one he has created. He is considering opening another, but hasn’t found the right spot yet. Hopefully he will find the right location soon.

I am looking for a place to retire. My kids/ and family are in Oregon. I want to garden, sew and continue to collect shells! Grew up in Hawaii…love the ocean! Need a small inexpensive way to live!!! Your community looks fascinating and intriguing!
Thank you for sharing your experience about the Tiny House community. I found you because I’m tired of my 9-5 job. I too work to pay rent and can’t manage to save. I live in Duluth, Georgia and there is very much need for this community near by.
Looking for something, preferably new build, before April 2023. Can we before that.
This looks alot like Safari Assiciation Of Ilwaco. We bought our lot for a small amount and put our tiny home on the lot and pay a annual membership and all our utilities are included except electricity. We love it there.
I literally love what you have done. I want to do what you have done in Jacksonville, Florida. Great sense of community. I need to talk to you as soon as possible. You have inspired me. Thank you
Can’t you park homes in ways that are not so uniform? It looks too much like a trailer park. All the barren space doesn’t help. I want to build a tiny home on wheels, but would like to find a community that has some charm. Maybe do your next place differently.
