Reality check: The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and the holiday season is fast upon us. So why not take time out to ogle 17 gorgeous little warm-weather bungalows?

Grab a mug of cocoa and get ready to satisfy your “bungalust.”

Bungalow1
MLS

Let’s start with something traditional

A garden hideaway with a shabby-chic spirit, from the land where it all began (that’s California, y’all).

Bungalow2
Zak Bush

But then let’s head East

Specifically, Montauk.

Bungalow31
Wings Hawaii

When you’ve got a Hawaiian beach shack

Part of the fun is letting it get a little bit scruffy.

Bungalow4
Coral Von Zumwalt

But we’re not against that swanky “bungaluxe” life, either

Unclear if this place has a door.

Bungalow5
Telegraph UK

Bungalows blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors

Whether you’re living it up in a floating hut in the Maldives…

Bungalow6
Sergey Makhno

Or taking a reading break on this placid lake

It’s in Kiev, in case you were wondering.

Bungalow7
Lux et Amor

Bring your A-Game

To this A-frame.

Bungalow9
Martin Lof

And don’t fear the split level

This Swedish retreat utilizes vertical space with an open, barn-style second story.

Bungalow8
Beautifully Seaside

Happiness is a bright, airy beach cottage in Nantucket

That’s also somehow sand-free.

Bungalow10
Tiny House Swoon

A Minnesotan family of four inhabits this 207-square-foot house on wheels

One question: Where does Mom escape to scream get a moment’s privacy?

Bungalow11
Specks of Glitter & Gold

Speaking of privacy

This place is all about sweet, sweet solitude.

Bungalow12
Ultra Home

We do love a pool party

For a party of one.

Bungalow13
Dwell

Not to mention foor-to-ceiling windows

On the façade of this L.A. dwelling.

Bungalow14
Cocoon Architecture

And we never oppose a super-contemporary addition

This Belgian farmhouse bends the rules--and we like it.

Bungalow15
Panoramio

Oh hi, dreamy little hobbit house

Tucked away in a Mediterranean inlet.

Bungalow16
NRJA

And hello, floating haven

That sunset, tho.

One final word

Adorable.
