Cabin

While not officially tiny, this small vacation home is perfect for a mountain getaway. At 507 square feet this home can sleep 6, seven if you count the couch. That’s really nice! It has all you need, except maybe a little space away from the rest of the family. That is ok, I can go for a walk in the woods for that rejuvenating sense of tranquility when they start to drive me crazy. The vaulted ceilings are beautiful and add a sense of light and space to the living room. The porch, which isn’t added into the total square footage, makes for an airy spacious feel as the living room opens up into it.

The square footage means it is not a true tiny home. A small home is 400-1000 square feet and a true tiny home is anything less than 400. There are also width and height requirements (picky picky.) But who cares? It’s awesome no matter what category it falls in! This isn’t mobile like so many of our other tiny home posts but, it’s in such a great location why would you want to move it anyway?

House On Wheels

Take a look at this rustic tiny home… on wheels! This couple decided to shed the corporate life for a lifestyle of waking up in a new location every day. Think you could do that? What a fun and exciting adventure every day would be! Wanderlust at it’s pinnacle.

I don’t think their lifestyle is feasible for us at the moment (with the kids, dogs, cat and all), but boy does it sound like a great adventure. It amazes me how people can throw all caution to the wind and venture out, like these two and their dog have done. I need to be more like that! I’m a little jealous of the things they get to see and do around our beautiful country. This is one way to see all the states. Well except Hawaii of course. (I don’t think this is what people mean by boat house. Haha.)

If this doesn’t wake a sense of adventure in you, you should check your pulse. Or maybe check this out… Number 10 is to die for! Hopefully not literally, but it would be such a rush! Safety Security Crazy has 10 of the most pulse racing activities out there! Find them here.

Manta Underwater Resort

The Manta Resort is located in the Zanzibar archipelago. It’s just off the coast of east Africa in the Indian Ocean and is just as unique as it’s location. What makes it so special? It is one of only two completely underground hotel rooms. Other resorts have plans and whispered ideas for rooms like this but this one is a reality. For $1500.00 a night you can have this crazy once-in-a-lifetime experience! Thoughts?

My first thoughts on seeing it were… ‘OMG! Wow! Please can we stay here?’ My second thoughts took a 180 degree turn… ‘Did you SEE Titanic?! Poseidon? Have you experienced claustrophobia?’ I did some research and found out that there aren’t typically any storms in this area so the waters should be calm; sharks mostly leave people alone; underwater glass is strong; and there is an emergency exit. I’m not sure which voice will win out…but either way it is super cool and I’m excited to feature it here today! Here are some of the plans for underwater hotels that might be happening soon. Find them here at Hotelchatter

utter-inn

Do you need a vacation? Travel to another country just to get away where no one can bother you, or find you. Utter Inn is located right off the port of Vasteras. Not your typical hotel because it floats on the water! A tiny little bed and breakfast you can rent in Sweden.

I want to go there!

I personally like to have my meals cooked for me when I’m on vacation. Not a problem. Rent the deluxe package and someone will bring meals to you. Sun bathe. Read. Swim. No one will disturb your leave of absence from the real world in this Waterworld retreat.

Enjoy the tour…

28 Houseboats That Will Make You Want To Float Away

Houseboats are one of the most peaceful vacation retreats. You really can “leave all your troubles behind.” (The swim really discourages unwanted visitors.) You really should do this at least once in your life. You won’t regret it! We did it a few years ago and it was the best! Our boat wasn’t like any of these but it did have a waterslide. These boats are awesome! #7 even has a garage for a boat and #8 is 4 stories high! I wonder how many you could sleep comfortably in there?!

This Renovated Cave In France Cost $1.34

Talk about bargain shopping. Alexis Lamoureux and Lotte van Reil sure got a deal on this run down cave. It hadn’t been lived in since the 11th century and was quite a mess; that’s probably why they only had to pay $1.34 for it! What a diamond in the rough. They turned it into a luxurious home that anyone would love to own. I love the way they kept the originality of the place while fixing it up. (P.s. For the next time you’re in France, it’s on Airbnb.)

glass wall swimming

Right from the start, these pools left me amazed and searching for my passport. When can I head out to Turkey? St. Lucia? Australia? Yup. I need to jump in these pools. Don’t worry if international travel isn’t your thing. Head over to Texas, Colorado, or Las Vegas! It’s hot and the kiddie pool in the yard is not going to cut it, not after seeing these. Which pool is your favorite?
