This is the hilarious moment a family of four arrived at the holiday rental they had booked for them and their two dogs to find -- it was a 114-square foot tiny 'dolls house'.

Dad JJ Keefe booked the rental as the family was traveling to Canton, New York, to drop their son Aidan off at university.

But when they arrived at the home in the Adondiracks, northern New York, they were shocked to find a tiny blue house.

Daughter Kylie, 25, filmed the family's reaction as they all burst into laughter.

"My dad saw that it slept four and the cheap price and booked it with no second thought," Kylie said.

The house was only 114 square feet downstairs with a 96 square foot loft.

Kylie added: "We all laughed when we pulled in and saw the size of the home."

Dad JJ immediately put Kylie and her brother Aiden in a nearby hotel, so they didn't all have to stay in the cramped holiday rental.

Kylie posted a video of the event to her TikTok account, where it went viral, garnering almost 32 million views.

The video also gained the attention of multiple brands, getting comments from Hilton Hotels, Arby's and Airbnb.

Kylie explained: "When I saw the responses from Arby's, Hilton and Airbnb, I was shocked, but thought it was hilarious."

The mistake from her father ended up being quite the happy accident, resulting in the family receiving a free $500 voucher from Airbnb - and a free stay in a Hilton hotel.

"All of the companies were incredibly generous to me and have made this one of the craziest experiences of my life thus far," Kylie said.

In the end, Kylie and Aidan did not stay at the tiny home, but both of their parents did, and according to Kylie, it wasn't a bad experience.

She said: "My dad and stepmom, Erika Keefe, did stay in the tiny home with the two dogs.

"They said the home was very cramped, but we were all laughing for pretty much our entire trip so It didn’t bother them to stay there."
