While it sounds a little highfalutin’, the term “boutique” should actually be part of the tiny house vernacular. Within the hotel and retail industry the term is used to describe a smaller, more intimate and personal experience. Boutique hotels are becoming a more popular option for vacationers who want to support a smaller business with a chic atmosphere. This appealing concept now makes room for boutique homes.
BoutiqueHomes features unique, architecturally appealing homes for rent.
BoutiqueHomes is a searchable website that features personal homes and small hotels around the world with unique, architectural details. Unlike Airbnb and VRBO, this site continues the exclusive theme in that it’s invite-only for the property owner. Anyone interested in design should check out their selection of vacation homes and hotels. Anyone interested in tiny houses should check out the cabins and beach houses section for amazing images and small-space ideas.
