If Seattle brings the hit movie, Sleepless in Seattle, to mind, you are not alone. This small-ish city feels like a metropolitan and attracts city folk, outdoor enthusiasts, and artistic hipsters alike. Located on the Pacific Northwest, there is nothing quite like Seattle. It hosts more than 100 festivals a year, is blessed with ecological diversity, and attracts high-tech companies (and their techies) just like bees get attracted to honey. If you are looking to visit this beautiful city, might we interest you to ditch your usual choices of hotels for tiny homes instead? Check out these top Airbnb tiny houses in Seattle, Washington.
If you are one that loves checking out the local food fare, this tiny home is the travel-match for you. It is close to all the best foodie spots that range from delicious pastries, Mexican and Italian cuisines, plus more. The completely detached guesthouse was previously a garage. Now transformed, it also comes with a private entrance and parking spot. The comfy space is fitted with a fully equipped kitchen, washer-dryer, and bathroom. By day, lounge on the black sofa; by night, pull down the testified-comfortable Murphy bed (no excessive tugging needed) for a good snooze. Great news, your pets are welcomed too!

You get the best of both worlds in this tiny home situated close to Ravenna Park. You’ll be close enough to all the city has to offer (biking distance)vbut still stay huddled in a quiet residential neighbourhood of 1930 bungalows. Named The Little Owl, this tiny home is erected at the owner’s garden and comes complete with a patio. The kitchen is well-equipped with the essentials, barbecue utensils, and cooking basics. Breakfast and snacks are also provided. The sleeping loft has a queen bed (with many pillows) that sleeps two; it is only accessible by a unique, narrow, and steep stairwell.

The 310 square-foot (28.8 square-metre) tiny home’s facade and the interior look like it could be featured in an architectural magazine. Located just a stone’s throw away from the foodie neighbourhood of Ballard, it boasts a fully functional kitchen, a large shower, and a gas fireplace for chillier days. A ladder leads you up to the sleeping loft fitted with two skylights. At night, stare up and admire the night sky; when morning comes, these roof windows brighten the home. There is also a seating area by the window that can serve as a reading nook or an additional makeshift bed.

Immaculately architectured, this 180 square-foot (16.7 square-metre) house-on-wheels is located in West Seattle. The interior is clad in reclaimed wood, giving it an edgy, industrial look. It can accommodate a maximum of three guests. Two can sleep on the sleeping loft accessible by ladder and another guest can fall into slumber on the sofa. Dark-toned furniture and hardware fixtures gel handsomely with the home. The two large skylights allow sufficient natural light to stream in, brightening the space. There is an electric fireplace, surround-sound stereo, kitchenette, luggage storage, private outdoor space, and a personal parking spot that makes this home a rare find.

Get ready for a rush of nostalgia upon entering this tiny cottage at Beacon Hill. Akin to a tavern, this home is a self-contained unit complete with a well-stocked kitchenette, bedroom loft fitted with a queen bed, and green surrounds. The furnishings in the home carries a traditional classic flair; there’s a rocking chair to complete the look too. It was remodeled in 1997 to include the usage of recycled materials. From the comfort of the loft, you can spot the Olympic Mountains when the skies are clear. Because of the steep staircase up to the loft, you must be mobile and young children are not permitted for safety reasons.

If you yearn for a tranquil stay in this bustling city, you’ll enjoy your spending your vacation nights here in the rural part of Seattle. This 400 square-foot (approximately 37.2 square-metre) home has a private master bedroom with a double bed. There is a small kitchen for you to make simple, quick meals too. On good days, do not miss dining out on the deck to take in the views. You’ll have an uninterrupted view of Mount Rainier. The highway is not too far off and it only takes a 25-minute drive to the city and 10 minutes to the airport.

It looks like an old school barn house from the outside, but upon entry, you’ll be greeted by a refreshingly minimalistic furnishing (Marie Kondo would be proud). Positioned very close to downtown Seattle, the freeway, and train, this 300 square-foot (approximately 27.9 square metres) home strikes gold when it comes to location. Named Barn 11, there is a queen bed at the loft accessible by a steep open staircase. The kitchenette is equipped with what you need to serve up a simple meal, but we suggest hitting up the string of restaurants located just a 15-minute walk away. There is a designated parking space for guests as well.
