Host Unusual's Top Ten Mezzanine Holiday Stays

03/02/2019 Host Unusual's Top Ten Mezzanine Holiday Stays


Who doesn't love a mezzanine?

It's the perfect space maximising solution that not only gives you an added vantage point and far greater visual reach, but also adds extra light, dimension and even ventilation to a room.

Add to that the visual impact of a staircase or ladder leading to your own 'den' and you've also got an exciting feature for a holiday home too!

We're lucky that some owners of our featured properties have caught on to this idea with their keen design eyes, so we thought why not show you some of the best examples we've come across so far. 

Climb the steps to a higher level of holiday here!
