Q: Can I legally park my tiny house at Orlando Lakefront? A: Yes.
Q: Can tiny housers live in the park year-around? A: Absolutely! Orlando Lakefront is not only for RVers, but for THers. Although tiny house enthusiasts may enjoy the TH park for any length of stay, we'd love to see tiny housers make the park home. Our vision is to form a grassroots community of tiny houses. Together, we can live tiny and create big community.
Q: I have an RV. Are lots available if I don't have a tiny house? A: Yes. Currently, there are more RVs than tiny houses. We love custom RV's. You're tiny too!
Q: What is your pet policy? A: Our pet policy is "Welcome pets!" The park currently has cats, dogs, a parrot and a bunny named Ruby. There are no weight restrictions, or limits as to the number of pets in your family (within reason). Dogs must be leashed and friendly to residents, as well as to other animals in the park. As Orlando Lakefront is a quiet community, we ask that dogs do not "woof-woof" too frequently. Cats can meow all they want. ;)
Q: Does the park have internet? A: As some of our residents require more bandwidth than a typical hotspot (you know who you are! :) the park has formed a relationship with a local internet service provider. The company can provide you with residential internet service, even though your residence is on wheels.
Q: What's included in the lot fee? A: The lot fee includes water, taxes, sewer, laundromat, landscaping, trash pickup, and the use of our boat and fishing docks.
Q: How close is Orlando Lakefront to the city of Orlando? A: Closer than you might think. We're only three miles (about 7 minutes) to Lake Eola in the heart of downtown Orlando.
Q: How many tiny houses are in the park? A: There are 19 tiny houses at Orlando Lakefront. 11 are THOWs (Tiny Houses on Wheels) and 2 are tiny houses in foundations!
Q: Do you rent tiny houses? A: A few. In the spirit of the social movement, we've renovated two tiny houses in foundations. The 98 sq. ft. the "Little Yellow House" and the 210 sq. ft. the "Little Blue House."Both tiny houses are rentals for folks to experience tiny living, and/or a home for to rent as we build you a THOW to park in our community. The little houses are currently rented. If you are interested in renting one of the houses in the future, please fill out the submission form on the Contact Us page with "little houses for rent" at the beginning of your comments. Currently, the park doesn't own a THOW to rent, but we're definitely thinking about it!
Q: Do tiny houses have to be on wheels at the park? A: Yes. As an RV park, we are zoned for mobile vehicles. The two tiny houses in foundations at Orlando Lakefront are repurposed, pre-existing structures that were original to the property.
Q: Does my tiny house have to be RVIA certified? A: No. Not at this time. However, your THOW must have an up-to-date registration.
Q: I built my tiny house myself. Can I still park my home at Orlando Lakefront? A: Yes! We acknowledge the brave DIYers who pioneered the social movement and tip our hats to those who continue the tradition. That said, the park's owner requests a conversation to make sure that the structure is in compliance with regulations for the park's zoning ordinance.
Q: Can you build a THOW while living at the park? A: Yes. We can build you a THOW (Tiny House On Wheels) custom-designed to your tiny living needs. We make the transition to tiny living easy. No delivery costs. No travel headaches. No stress! Individuals cannot build their own THOW at the park, as we are a residential community and wish to be respectful of our community members' desire to enjoy the peace and quiet on Lake Fairview.
Q: I have an older RV that's been renovated. Can I still park at Orlando Lakefront? A: Absolutely ! We love tricked-out, renovated RV's! You are living the tiny life too. (If the RV is older than 2007, the park's owner requests a conversation to make sure that the RV is in compliance with regulations required to satisfy the park's zoning ordinance.)
Q. Do the lots have hookups? Are they included in the lot fee? A: Orlando Lakefront has hookups for sewer, water and electric (50 and 30 amp). Perfect for the tiny houser who wants all the modern conveniences of home, albeit a tiny one. Water and sewer are included in the lot fee; electric is the resident's responsibility.
Q: Can I park my tiny house at Orlando Lakefront as a rental property? A: Yes. You can park your tiny house here year-around and use it as a long term rental property,6 months or more. The TH owner is responsible for their monthly lot fee, as well as the upkeep and maintenance of their tiny house. At this time, the park does not offer a property management service. For further information, please contact the management at Orlando Lakefront.
