About the property

Opposite side of the unit you'll find full size bunk beds behind a privacy curtain. The bottom bunk will sleep 2, the top bunk is weight limited at no more than 175# please, and it's best for the younger people in your party. Towels, all bedding and 4-pillows are provided.

Full size leather sofa with reversible stool/small table, and a table with bench seats in the main area. Dual inside/outside stereo with a 20" flat screen TV in the campers family area. The Camper is stocked with DVD's, books and games for your enjoyment, and free Wifi is included.

Dual heating and AC, both work great! Lots of storage, and the Kitchen is stocked with all the necessities and more, including a 2-slice toaster and 4-cup Mr. Coffee pot and grilling tools. We provide you with coffee and filters, salt/pepper and other spices you may want for your grilled steak, seafood, chicken and/or vegetables.

The second exit door to the camper is through the bathroom, a nice feature while coming in from the spa. We ask that you use water wisely when showering and washing dishes, as we will need to do tank maintenance throughout your stay, which may require access to the bathroom area. 3-night minimum, and a discount may be available for longer stays.

There's a nice large covered patio brightened with skylights, a 6-person patio table and large screen TV, with DISH and HBO. Off the patio you will find the 5-burner grill, tools and non-stick spray. The 6-person hot tub spa sits behind the camper, so remember to bring your suits, we provide the pool towels! The patio looks out to the nice size grassy backyard, with a tree swing for your children's enjoyment. We also have a box full of outdoor things to play with, the corn hole game, as well as a cemented in basketball hoop, basketball is included!

We are located in a quiet residential area, so we respect our neighbors by having no loud music, parties or gatherings. Please, no visitors or unregistered guests. It's a great neighborhood to go out for a walk or take a bike ride.

Sorry but the unit is not ADA accessible, so you must be able to use the stairs to access.

If you are interested in renting early in the new year of 2019 and the camper is blocked, you must inquire with us first on your travel dates and amount of adults/children, as the camper may be available for you. Please NO instant bookings for 2019.

About Kathi Teacher

Our family is simple. My husband Mark, myself Kathi and our 18-year old daughter Kaila. We have 2-dogs; Jesse is 15 and she is a Beagle/Terrier mix, then we have Koko, she is 10-years old and a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. We also have 2-cockatiels, Bandit and Nibbles. We live in Van Nuys California, and love being here!

We moved from the Phoenix Area about 8-years ago to escape the heat and be near the ocean, which we love! We would take family vacations here to visit the ocean every year while living in Arizona, mainly for the 4th of July Holiday, and eventually thought it would be great to live here!

We love to camp as a family, and did lots of that in the mountains of Arizona every chance we got! After moving to Cali, tent camping was not the same, it's different landscaping and it's farther away, so we decided it was time to get off the ground and into a camper! While we love our camper, we hate having it sit with very little activity, as we are not able to get away as much anymore. So we've decided, it would be nice to keep it fresh and working properly, so we wanted other's to enjoy it too, even if only for a few days of happiness away from your own home.

Kathi Teacher purchased this recreational vehicle in 2017

Why Kathi Teacher chose Lake Balboa

We are North of Los Angeles, located in the San Fernando Valley near Lake Balboa Park, "Anthony C Beilenson Park" where fishing, bike rentals, walking paths, paddle boats, sport areas, barbecue pits, hiking and fun are had by everyone! We are centrally located about 20-minutes from Hollywood, Los Angeles and the beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu, as well as Six Flags Magic Mountain to the North of us. We are close to The Getty Center, UCLA and the USC-Northridge Campus. You can be in the big city, and feel comfortable in a nice, relaxing and quiet neighborhood, while enjoying the camper and spa in your down time.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

The camper is a nice escape from an apartment, private room or home! You will feel the "glamping experience." We also offer you a complimentary load of laundry prior to your check out, and this must be scheduled upon your arrival. Our daughter may also be available to babysit at times, so please inquire early if you're interested!

Welcoming and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights while sightseeing Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Kathi and Mark were so hospitable and my first impression was that the camper was exceptionally clean. It smelled brand new. All of the items you would are there! We basically slept there so we didn’t get a chance to enjoy all of the amenities like their beautiful patio and backyard. Our older kids did use the hot tub for one evening and it was nice to relax there after walking all day.

There is a binder with information about the area plus restaurant coupons. There was even a welcome basket of snacks and a bottle of wine for the adults and sparkling cider for the kids.

We are not familiar with the Los Angeles area at all but we felt completely safe in this neighborhood and there was complete privacy.

Oh we also forgot a couple of items (I swear I checked lol) and they texted right away to let us know they had found them. You might not get that from any hotel stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you Kathi and Mark for helping to make our family vacation a memorable one.

Charming experience

  • 5 of 5

Kathi and her husbands camper experience was one of a kind! Very warm, cozy and inviting experience. They were great hosts, very welcoming and respecting our privacy. Well maintained, I was pleasantly surprised and my husband who was initially skeptical was very pleased with the experience. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to use the jacuzzi as we had a lot we wanted to do but we would definitely come back if the opportunity presents! Thank you Kathi for a wonderful stay.

A wonderful and accommodating place!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place to stay! Thank you to Kathi, her husband, and their two cute dogs that made it so easy and convenient for us. They went above and beyond in making us feel comfortable. The hot tub is a amazing plus—still great even without it. I cannot recommend this place enough.
