Bigger is better - or is it? Instead of renting a large holiday house by the beach or in the national park, how about the opposite? It is worth renting out a tiny house once in a while? Assuming one is not traveling with a family (and especially a large family), a stay at a tiny house can be very rewarding and charming. Sometimes it's nice to be minimalist.

Treehouses are often quaint tiny houses that are perfect to spend the summertime with one's significant other for a romantic time together. Another time one many be tempted to book a tiny house is when looking for a more authentic rustic cabin accommodation.

Why Choose A Tiny House Accommodation

It is not necessarily a given that a tiny house will actually be cheaper than a regular house. If it is just a small accommodation, then it may be cheaper. But very often tiny houses are more unique and works of art and so may not actually be cheaper at all.

The ingenuity with tiny accommodations can include potato houses, small rustic cabins, cave accommodation, treehouses, treehouses in the shape of a flying saucer, treehouses in the shape of a bird's nest, igloo accommodation, and so much more.

So when thinking about having a tiny house, one can consider booking one because its cheaper (like a studio flat) or a work of art.
