9. Miniature quaint quarters

This adorable loft is actually just a tiny garage, part of the host’s main house. Don’t worry about privacy though because you will have your own access to it without having to disturb the main house. Inside, the bedroom is located at the very top, and due to its limited space, you will quite literally have to crawl into bed. You will be amazed by how the tiny garage is able to fit a small kitchen, bathroom with shower, and living area with a TV for Netflix! This mini quarter has got everything you need for your stay.
