After a very long time of being under some form of lockdown, many people are now seeking out some pre-pandemic experiences. People want to book staycations, but many are still afraid to book hotels because they don’t want to share spaces with a lot of strangers.

Good thing, you can still book a staycation without exposing yourself to so many people. You can book tiny homes for your next vacation! Renting tiny homes is perfect especially when you are planning a quick family getaway, a couple’s retreat, or a solo escape amidst the pandemic.

Many tiny homes located in nice, top outdoor locations!

Building tiny homes has been trending for so many years now. Those who have invested in these charming miniature properties before have placed them in top outdoor locations in the countryside: in the woods, on top of a hill, near the beach, in the middle of a green field, or beside a lake or river. The natural setting makes it the perfect place to stay when you need an escape from everyday life.

Here’s one that is situated in the middle of the woods. There’s a huge picture window in the bedroom so you can feel like you’re outside and sleeping comfortably among the trees.

Best of all? It’s possible to find these chic tiny houses that are available for short term rental a few kilometres away from the large metropolitan areas. The driving time is often two hours or less.

Staying in tiny homes will help you disconnect and recharge

Located in remote areas, staying in a tiny home will give you an opportunity to disconnect from your devices and connect with the people who matter most to you. Spend time with your partner and your kids, enjoy a campfire, try hiking, swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities nearby that you will find enjoyable.

Renting tiny houses is affordable and safer

If you look at the rates of renting a tiny house, you’ll notice that it is almost similar to the rates of staying in a hotel.

The amenities are not similar, but you will have all the things you need to cook meals and keep yourself relaxed during the length of your stay.

It is even better because staying in a tiny house keeps you "socially distant" from other people, thus minimizing your chance of contracting the covid-19 virus. Remember, going outside is still risky because the pandemic is far from over and many communities haven’t reached herd immunity against the disease despite the roll out of vaccines. If you are going to book a staycation, choose a place where you and your loved ones will be safe.
