In another life, I would be the type of minimalist person who would make Marie Kondo proud. But I'm decidedly a maximalist (read: borderline hoarder). So, although the idea of a tiny home is adorable and dreamy, they're simply impractical for someone who has two essential-oil diffusers (ahem, me).

Thankfully Airbnb allows folks to take breaks from their real lives and spaces and spend time in someone else's shoes—or, you know, their bite-sized homes. And people are really into it: According to a recent report, the mini abodes have had a 125 percent year-over-year increase in bookings, proving the trend is here to stay. So in the spirit of getaways to tiny properties, I've rounded up five homes around the world that are on my Airbnb (and interior decor) wish list.

Find your dream tiny home below.

5. Florianópolis, Brazil, $46 per night

For hardly more than a spin class, you can stay the night in this tiny home located in a part of Brazil known as the "Island of Magic," where you can surf and unplug. Should you need AC or a quick Netflix session, however, the home has you covered.

If you need a helping hand to keep your spaces organized, here are Marie Kondo–approved hacks to clean your spaces and the hacks that will help keep your desk tidy.
