23 Charming Tiny Homes You Can Rent on Airbnb
Tiny homes have been making waves on the internet for several years now, garnering attention for their coziness and architectural innovation. You may have even seen them on a Netflix show called Tiny House Nation. But even if you don't see yourself committing to a miniature-sized abode full-time, a tiny home might be perfect for your next vacation. It offers access to remote locations away from everything and everyone, and it's often a more sustainable option.
So, whether you're planning a couples retreat, friend getaway, or solo vacation, tiny homes provide an escape from everyday life — often at an affordable price. And what these homes lack in square footage, they make up for in charm. From a modern shipping container rental in Denver, Colorado, to a treehouse-inspired home in Portland, Oregon, to a barn house on wheels in Melbourne, Florida, we've rounded up some of the most unique tiny home Airbnbs around the U.S.
