Tiny House With a Big Garden Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa
Located just a few minutes from historic Stellenbosch, where shopping, dining and wining are plentiful, this tiny house Airbnb Plus is perfect for a quick getaway. However, once you start exploring the expansive gardens outside, you’ll want to stay for days and days!
The interior is fresh and cozy, but the exterior is the main draw here. The yard is filled with trellises of climbing flowers, planter boxes filled with veggies and herbs (which guests are welcome to eat!), a shaded alfresco dining space and a deck with a built-in fire pit.
“This cabin is a little piece of paradise! The garden is an absolute sanctuary and the cabin has everything you could possibly need. The view to the mountains is absolutely breathtaking. The location was perfect for exploring the beautiful wine region all around Stellenbosch. We would highly recommend,” says Airbnb reviewer Charleen.
Vintage Airstream Airbnb in Bradenton, Florida
This 1971 Airstream camper was thoughtfully transformed into a cheerful tiny home parked next to an enclosed swimming pool and hot tub in sunny Florida. The yellow accents and loads of plants along the exterior of the camper carry into the interior. Guests can spend hours admiring details like hidden storage compartments, a reading nook, a projector for movies, a funky faux plant wall and charming pops of pineapple everywhere. Plus, we don’t know how hosts Micah and Jana did it, but they fit a California king bed in the camper!
This Airbnb also includes a fully functional kitchen, air conditioning, an alfresco dining setup, a fire pit and hammock. The private bathroom for guests is located in the covered pool area. Though you could fill your days and nights enjoying all of the amenities of the Airstream, it’s also within walking distance to Palma Sola beaches, shopping and restaurants.
While in Florida, why not travel a few hours south and east and experience all of the best things to do in Miami.

The interior of the tiny cabin is simple, yet it has everything you need: a lofted bed, a kitchen sink, a small bathroom and a cozy sitting area.
Mini House of Mirrors in Ruu, Harju Maakond, Estonia
The distinctive mirror-clad exterior of this mini house Airbnb seems to disappear into its beautiful surroundings near the Jagala River, highlighting the tall trees and endless blue sky by day and the setting sun and twinkling stars by night.
Inside, the mirrors transform into floor-to-ceiling windows, making the tiny house-size accommodations seem enormous, and providing guests with the feeling of being one with nature even while indoors. The space includes a kitchen, bathroom, hot water, heat and air conditioning, a grill and even a private outdoor sauna.
“Stylish and funky little place,” reflects Airbnb reviewer Amin. “Was a nice retreat away from Tallinn to stay and disconnect. It is a short drive away and easy to find. Close to Jagala waterfall and a good base if you want to go elsewhere in Estonia.”

Solar-Powered Pod, Marion Bay, South Australia, Australia
Though charming in a glamping sort of way, the allure of this tiny house Airbnb is not the accommodations but the location. Situated on remote private property near Marion Bay and Innes National Park in South Australia, it proffers incredible views and endless opportunities to explore. Imagine lounging on secluded beaches, rock hopping, taking a dip in a rock pool, whale watching from the deck and toasting to epic sunsets every night.
The pod was designed with the location in mind, too, as it boasts a low environmental footprint with solar and wind power and an eco toilet. However, there are plenty of amenities such as a hot shower, a gas stove and heat, a refrigerator, etc., to keep guests comfortable.
“A great stay in a beautiful part of the world! The pod had everything we needed and more. Will definitely be returning,” says Airbnb reviewer Simon.
Ecological Tiny Home Airbnb Near Barcelona, Spain
