As of late, many travelers are looking to go small when choosing their home away from home. Tiny homes and other kinds of miniature, standalone structures are increasingly popular travel accommodations around the world, in rural and even some urban destinations.

Ali Killam, consumer spokesperson at Airbnb notes the increasing popularity of little accommodations.

“Bite-size escapes, outdoor immersions and off the grid adventures are trending on Airbnb this year,” she said. “Tiny houses, barns, farm stays, Cycladic houses and shepherds huts are seeing the largest spikes in bookings, as travelers are increasingly seeking accommodations that provide reconnection to natural surroundings and taking a break from their ever digital worlds.”

Why the surge in popularity? Killam points to the Marie Kondo, less-is-more effect.

“Tiny homes are extremely appealing to our travelers due to their minimalist nature while still creating a stylish small space to cozy up in.”
