  • Over the past couple of years, interest in tiny homes has grown big. More families are down-sizing to save big on budget. Meanwhile, some moms and dads got into tiny home projects to give their kids a new space where they could escape and unwind.


    On Smart Parenting, we've featured a single mom who DIY-ed her way to build a durable container house, a family who went for a loft-style place to maximize their lot space, and a couple who built a tiny home with an indoor pool!

    Tiny homes live up to the saying, "small but terrible." What these houses lack in space, they make up for in functionality, practicality, and in most cases, aesthetics! There is something about these compact homes that are so charming, right?

    If you've been fantasizing about tiny house living, we've rounded up some Airbnb rentals to give you a similar experience. Most of these are also located just a few hours drive from Metro Manila, so they're perfect if you're looking for a quick escape from the city (or saving on fuel costs!)
