A luxurious small container home sits atop others in Palma, Majorca, Spain – and you can rent it through airbnb.com.
“In a quiet street just five minutes away from the attractions of Palma, is the Container House. As the name suggests the house is made from shipping container modules, which makes this a really unusual place to stay.”

Derek ‘Deek’ Diedricksen shares some photos and information of a tiny place to stay in Madison, Connecticut called the The Beech Tree Cottages.
“Cozy, fun, relaxing. and charming, this place seems to have it all. I salute the Talmadge family for keeping this 1930s-built seaside resort alive. I have not stayed there yet, but its most certainly on my “to do” list.”

If you are planning a holiday in the UK and prefer a simpler lifestyle, you might want to check out the vacation rentals Canopy & Stars offers. There are quite a wide variety of tiny spaces available like shepherd huts, domes, and tents. I first spotted this on Shedworking.

Tiny houses can take many forms. I was fully reminded of this when I saw this post on unusual lodging options around the world.
Planes, Trains, and Trailers
OK… this is just weird, but I like it. It’s a cluster of seven Airstream trailers on the roof of the Grand Daddy Hotel in South African. While this kind of turns my stomach a little I must admit I like the idea of extending habitable space but using small modular units. I would just prefer to see it extending habitable space for people who need it and not more luxury rooms in an expensive hotel… but then I’m weird that way. Rooftop Trailer Park
OK… not really… well maybe… actually I bet this is tidal wave proof. It’s a tiny hotel accommodation currently in the Netherlands made from an oil rig escape pod. So on your next trip abroad be on the lookout for odd places to stay… you never know what kind of tiny little place you might find and how it might make your trip a little more interesting.

It seems like you never quite know where this tiny portable hotel will show up. It’s sat on top of an ancient museum in Germany, had a view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and been on a luxury hotel in Tokyo. It’s a cool small design built originally as an installation art project by Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann.

Here’s an interesting idea for some simple lodging. It’s a tiny room for rent in Germany that’s not much bigger than a bed. For the frugal traveler this might be just the right fit.

This is a great little vacation rental concept out of France that will soon be available in the US and Canada. It’s a self contained tiny house that can be transported to it’s final site in one piece and setup with just a little effort.
