Tiny living has been making rounds on the internet for several years now and many people are considering to have their own tiny home. And I deeply admire those who are advocating on simplifying and living with less! Although personally, I only like tiny houses on staycations/vacations (as I can live with less stuff but not with less space). Despite that, I still find staying in a tiny house for a couple or more days a great experience! Tiny houses may be small in square feet, but definitely great in charm and makes for a unique vacation!
So if you’re like me who enjoys “tiny vacations” rather than “tiny living”, I’ve listed here the best tiny house staycations that are a few hour’s drive from Manila. By the way, a house by definition is a space where we can sleep, cook, and bathe (in short, live). So we’re basically referring to a small shelter with bedroom, kitchen, dining, comfort room, and sometimes, a living area all squeezed into a compact home. We’re not pertaining to glamping or huts/cabins that do not have basic living amenities.
So here are the charming tiny house staycation spots near Manila, in no particular order (as always).
