Unique tiny and black home (from 110 USD)

This unconventional cheap Airbnb in Charlotte, NC, was actually a garage before being transformed into this beautiful little home. This small and strikingly black home resides on the host’s home lot, so you won’t be too alone. The first floor is an open-concept living and dining area, and has enough space to make everyone feel comfortable. There’s a full-sized bed and you can use it as a couch in the day and for sleeping at night. Keep yourself entertained by watching TV or playing games on the PS3. The kitchen is modern and compact and you can prepare some basic dishes in it. Scramble up the ladder for access to the loft bedroom area. This is a quaint little loft area and the star of this ‘room’ is the large bed. It’s just the perfect place to fall asleep because it’s quiet and private, and when nighttime falls, not much light will penetrate the room, creating a great atmosphere for deep sleep. If you loved the home, be sure to leave a reminder of yourself behind. Take some Polaroid photos of yourself, leave one in the house, and keep one for yourself as a souvenir.
