In the past few years, tiny homes have become all the rage. People all over the world have abandoned their homes to move into tiny houses.

People have always been interested in downsizing. For many people, that means simplifying your life, reducing material possessions, and focusing more on quality of life.

That said, downsizing just isn’t practical for many people. If you have a lot of belongings, or you need space for yourself, pets, or children, moving permanently into a tiny home probably isn’t a reasonable option.

That’s why staying in a tiny home for a quick weekend getaway or for a relaxing vacation is a perfect solution!

You can still experience the joy of spending time in a tiny home without permanently committing to living there.

Check out these 20 incredible tiny homes that you can actually rent on Airbnb! Although some of them are a little pricey, there are more than a few that you can rent for less than $100 per night.
