Tiny homes may be small on space, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be big on amenities and style. Another perk? The corresponding tiny price.

If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge and live in a tiny home full-time, how about renting one out for a getaway? It can be a great way to try out downsizing for a few days. Even if the tiny home lifestyle ultimately isn’t for you, it can be perfect for a vacation. According to a 2015 USA Today article, the standard hotel room size is 330 square feet and shrinking. That means you’ll actually get more room renting a tiny home! They’re not much more expensive, either. Here, check out some of the most affordable tiny homes available to rent, from around the world.
