It Looks like a Modern Hawaiian Surf Shack, but the Interior Tells a Different Story
Oh this is a sweet little Bali-style tiny cottage could be an easy tiny home to live in, don’t you think? Only, it’s not in Bali! It’s actually located in Kealakekua Bay in Captain Cook, Hawaii – which, in some ways, is even better! For those of us who live in North America, Hawaii is a lot closer than Bali, so a visit to this gorgeous little spot is totally manageable. Right?
Ah, just think of it – this lovely little tiny cabin can provide us with the best of two worlds, really. All of that gorgeous Balinese architecture and antique detail coupled with some of the most gorgeous beach scenery in the world.
The tiny house structure is completely built with reclaimed and recycled teak panels from Bali. Check out all of that beautiful intricate carving and imagine the light shining through those panels, casting whimsical shadows all over the walls, ceilings, and floor – amazing! Combine this with really tasteful antique furniture as well as classically-Hawaiian décor, such as surfboards on the ceilings, and you’ve got the perfect combination! Also, in keeping with Balinese tradition, the kitchen is entirely open – meaning, it’s OUTSIDE. How’s that for sweetness? Especially in that hot Hawaiian heat! Cooking out here will make your life so much easier, and cooler, on those excruciatingly humid days. As for the bedroom, just look at that four-poster bed with the canopy that you can pull down around you at night, keeping away the mosquitoes and tucking you in for a cozy sleep. What a romantic spot this could be if you have a sweetheart! And if you need a siesta in the daytime, there’s even a sweet little hammock for you to crawl into. For the more adventurous, you could even try sleeping out here at night!
This Bali-style tiny cottage has tons of privacy and there are a few great areas on the property where you can sit back and put your feet up or invite a few friends over to entertain. Imagine sitting out here with a tall, cool tropical drink, sipping in the shade in the heat of the day. There’s even an outdoor shower for you to enjoy in the mornings, evenings, or after a swim at the beach! And just look at that beautiful ficus tree right outside the front door, it’s practically holding the place up – it is as much a part of the tiny cottage as the walls, floors, and ceiling are. It would be so lovely spending a day – or night – within the comforting branches of that tree.
This is exactly what living in Bali is like – living inside and outside all at the same time. There’s barely any difference, really. Living this way makes it seem like you have a heck of a lot more space than you actually do. We love Bali, and we love Hawaii too. This sweet Balinese tiny cottage is located in the quiet and friendly neighbourhood of Napoopoo Village. From here, it’ll take you just over a minute to walk down to Manini Beach Park for a swim or a walk or a day in the sunshine. So how about it, let’s go to Hawaii this spring and spend a week or two at this dreamy little tiny home.
