LuxTiny is a tiny home community in northern Arizona. Currently, it features 41 parking spots for full-time living and a few rentals. It feels very much like a neighborhood versus an RV park with a much larger average lot size at 3500 square feet. The multiple rows of unique-looking tiny houses all have mailboxes, driveways, and individual yards. Residents have few rules and free reign over their landscaping choices. Further, they can add a shed and a small studio space that can be used as an office, guest suite, or short-term rental.
With so much freedom to do what you like, it creates a very laid-back atmosphere for residents. Though there are no shared green spaces or buildings, so there are fewer opportunities to mingle with the neighbors. All this adds up to that traditional neighborhood feel. The developer plans to add amenities like a walking path and community garden at some point. This could happen when Phase 3 gets built.
LuxTiny Tiny Home Community Tour:
At LuxTiny, you can bring your own tiny home or commission one from LuxTiny Manufacturing, a custom tiny house and park model manufacturer. Their models begin in the mid $60,000s to over $100,000. You can commission a 399-square-foot home with a 144-square-foot studio. Renting that extra space could cover your loan payment—an exciting opportunity to pay off your much more quickly.
During our LuxTiny visit, we stayed in the Mountain Mini rental, a 12-foot wide park model tiny house. A casita guest suite is across a shared deck but with no direct view into the main home. We stayed in the primary tiny home and marveled at its spaciousness. All the open living space is perfect for things like yoga, and the expansive kitchen island doubles well for dining or working from home. Additionally, the downstairs bedroom with an attached bathroom is an excellent option for those not wanting to climb out of a loft at night.
What we enjoyed most about our stay at LuxTiny tiny home community is probably how peaceful it felt with lovely wooded views. We also had a wonderful dinner with the retired neighbors. They shared how much they enjoyed living there, from quiet, nature access, and the ability to landscape their lot to their hearts’ content.
