With the giving season well underway, Airbnb and Hamburg, Germany’s Miniatur Wunderland teamed up to create the world’s tiniest Airbnb, available to renters at the small (no pun intended) rate of $10 per night.

As the first ever Airbnb listing in the fictitious German town of Knuffingen, the red brick country house arrived with all of the trimmings just in time for the holidays. The two-level rendition of the quintessential German home is equipped with everything a tiny guest could ask for. From the festive family room with an open fire and four-centimeter-tall Christmas tree to the thumbnail-sized sofa, I imagine The Borrowers would have the ultimate holiday getaway inside the cozy rental.

The rules of the house are fairly clear: guests must measure two centimeters or less, small talk with the host is encouraged, miniature pets are permitted (penny-sized at most), tiny parties and gatherings are allowed (if they can fit through the three-centimeter tall doorway), and no tall orders please – but they’re happy to accommodate small requests.

Though average-sized guests won’t physically be able to fit inside the Airbnb, their nightly fee of $10 will unlock the gift of giving, with all proceeds being donated to Hanseatic Help, the charitable social logistics initiative based in Hamburg.

Visitors of the tiny listing will start their journey at the coveted Knuffingen Airport—one of the busiest and most famous cities in Wunderland with a population of 10,000 tiny people—or arrive by Christmas train into the town’s tiny station. Afterward, they’ll enjoy a tour around Knuffingen with a stop at “Castle Löwenstein” to take in sights and swoon over the hundreds of twinkling festive lights and other seasonal decorations spread throughout Knuffingen.
