Staying in a tiny house for a weekend is a great way to get a personal feel for the space of a tiny house.
If you can find openings, you could always stay at a tiny house hotel:
There are some other sites geared toward tiny house rentals (such as tinyhousevacations.com), but I hesitate to recommend them because there doesn’t seem to be a safeguard company in place to act as mediator if you or the homeowner should need to resolve a dispute. (In other words, read the fine print, and use at your own risk.)
Another option is to rent a privately-owned property through Airbnb. On the Airbnb website, you can search by whole house rental or private room rental, but there is currently no way to easily filter the results by tiny house.
Google search to the rescue!
To find a list of Airbnb tiny house rentals:
Step one – Go to google.com
Step two – In the search field, enter this text:
site:airbnb.com “city name” “tiny house”
- Be sure to enter exactly as shown – no space between the colon and the url, include quotations around the city name, and include quotations around the phrase “tiny house”
- Side note 1: You can replace “tiny house” with some other keyword you want, such as “houseboat,” “airstream,” or “spartan” to get different results!
- Side note 2: You can replace airbnb.com with other rental sites like vrbo.com
Step three – Press enter and you’ll get a list of tiny houses on Airbnb.com in and near the city you specified!
