That 275-Square-Foot Dunkin’ Tiny House Is For Rent on Airbnb
Remember when Olivia Wilde decorated a tiny house that is literally powered by coffee grounds for Dunkin’
Donuts? Well, we have more news: This very special runs-on-Dunkin’ home is on Airbnb—for just a little more dough than your coffee order.
The home that runs on coffee, as it’s called on the vacation rental platform, is listed for just $10 to $13 per night. The tiny house has been transported from New York City to Nahant, Massachusetts, a beach town north of Boston. (It happens to be parked on town property, so you’ll have to sign a waiver before staying over.)
And yes, it really is powered by coffee, but not in exactly the same way you and I are. The house uses a biofuel blend of 80 percent coffee oil which is then mixed with 20 percent alcohol, which lets the fuel burn efficiently. This eco-friendly model runs off of 65,000 pounds of spent coffee grounds, and it could be a way to power vehicles and homes of the future.
We can’t forget that Olivia Wilde was here; she “incorporated her own personality into the design,” Apartment Therapy reported earlier this month. “From the slate countertops to the walnut floors and the high-quality appliances, the home’s chic aesthetic represents the actress’s unique taste and modern eye—with not-so-subtle touches of pink and orange, of course.”
While it looks like the home is booked for the foreseeable future, there could be a possibility of cancellations or more dates. Keep an eye on the Airbnb listing for your chance at this Dunkin’ fan’s dream stay.
