Last into the tank are Jon Staff and Pete Davis of GetAway, seeking $500,000 for five percent equity.

GetAway offers an instant escape with their private, tiny houses in the woods. According to their website, their service allows you to disconnect and recharge, live simply and take in the beauty of nature. If you need an electronics escape, the tiny houses come equipped with a lockbox. Some of the benefits include no city noise, comfy beds and a kitchen cooktop. They are currently located at private campgrounds around Boston and New York and accept nominations for other cities. According to their website, the “cabins are 160-200 square foot tiny houses on wheels,” perfect for that much-needed escape from the stresses of life!

The sharks think it sounds like the perfect setting for a horror movie, but they assure that they are far safer than camping. They get the same daily rate as a hotel and have previously raised $1.2 million. Kevin O’Leary thinks there are issues with the valuation but offers $500,00 as a loan for three years at 11 percent interest with 2.5 percent equity.

Barbara Corcoran thinks the bottom line “makes no sense” so goes out, followed by Mark Cuban. Lori Greiner can’t get over the creep factor in the woods and goes out as well. They think Chris Sacca would make a great partner, giving that it could provide a counterbalance to our technology-obsessed society, aka the “anti-Twitter.” They propose a revised offer of $1 million for 10 percent equity, which concerns Sacca give their reaction, or lack thereof, to O’Leary’s offer. O’Leary then pressures them to make a decision on his deal or risk losing it. Sacca counters $500,00 under the same terms as their prior investor while O’Leary takes his offer off the table.

They revise the offer for $500,000 at a 7.14 percent equity stake at a $7 million valuation. Ultimately, they decide to reject the offer.

Social Media Reacts to GetAway’s Appearance on “Shark Tank”
