The mobile home park fronts the ocean
Betsey Johnson’s pink trailer in Malibu’s funky Paradise Cove Mobile Home Park is an extension of her fashion style: colorful, girly, eclectic, and a little bit punk. Johnson has called it her “little jewel box”—it’s filled with momentos and furnishings she’s collected throughout her life, and, as she told fashion website Man Repeller last year, she decorated the trailer entirely herself. “There are great neighbors, great privacy, great views and great beaches and golf carts,” she said of the setting.
The dwelling holds two updated bathrooms and two bedrooms, including a “double-size” master that Johnson nicknamed “The Yellow Room.” Other features include wood floors, built-ins, and tongue and groove ceilings.
The trailer is surrounded by tropical landscaping and the outdoor spaces include a soaking tub, covered wood deck, and “multiple entertaining areas.” The trailer is one of 265 at Paradise Cove, an oceanfront mobile home park with a guard-gated entry, clubhouse, tennis court, and beach access.
