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.

1. Garage-turned-tiny home for two food lovers (from USD 86)

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!

7. Private home away from home for two adults (from USD 85)

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.

10. Minimalist tiny barn

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.
