If you want to learn what it is like to live in a tiny house without making a long-term commitment, the way to do it is to stay at a tiny accommodation. If you are visiting Florida, you can book a reservation to spend a night at Coldwater Gardens. There are several tiny accommodations there, one of which is the Tiny-House Cabana.
The tiny accommodation has a cool contemporary vibe, but it is constructed from rustic materials which are fitting with the forested setting. Coldwater Gardens describes it as “the perfect balance of comforts and nature.”
While staying in the tiny house keeps you close to nature, the bedroom does have air conditioning—essential for hot Florida days and nights. There is a queen-size bed along with a surprising amount of space in the bedroom. You will see that this is possible because the kitchen is located outside.
Like the bedroom, the bathroom has climate control so that it remains comfortable throughout the year.
As you can see, there is an entire kitchen located on the porch. The countertop looks to be made of stainless steel so that it is protected from the elements.
Here’s what that kitchen space looks like from the porch itself. You can see that it is very much a standard kitchen despite its unusual location.
The vertical lines of the siding go a long way toward creating that “modern” look which makes the structure so distinctive.
There is a shower with glass walls in the bathroom, along with plenty of towels. An outdoor shower is available as well.
The wide doors leading to the bedroom can be opened up to unify the indoor and outdoor spaces.
What a view! Whether you were relaxing indoors on the bed and looking out at these beautiful woods, or you were sitting around the fire pit here, you would enjoy a blissful sense of solitude and tranquility.
A gas grill is next to the fire pit, providing yet another way to prepare delicious meals and enjoy them in the great outdoors.
This might literally be the most beautiful kitchen I have ever seen. Why confine yourself to looking out a window at the scenery when you can be surrounded by it as you work?
You do not need to bring your own dishware; the tiny house provides pots, pans, glasses and flatware to use in the outdoor kitchen and at the grill.
If you would like to book a stay at this tiny accommodation, it is available for $150 a night on weekends and $130 a night on weekdays. You can place a reservation by visiting Coldwater Gardens.
