Tiny homes have given entrepreneurs and guests alike a fresh perspective on contemporary hospitality and tourism. It seems that more and more outdoor enthusiasts prefer the coziness of homes on wheels to conventional accommodation. These compact gems literally provide a home away from home, coupled with incredible versatility designed to adapt to a wide range of customers. It's impossible to feel homesick in a vacation home like the lovely Adina, which combines the best of both worlds by being both a cozy haven and a modern retreat in the middle of nature.
Adina is a relatively common name in Europe, but that's not where this tiny home's name comes from. It comes from the Nuenonne language spoken in Bruny Island, Tasmania, where it means "very good" or "pleasant." Indeed, this compact dwelling is pleasing in every way and ready to charm any guest who steps inside. It was custom-designed to operate as an Airbnb on Bruny Island – one of the best places in the world for contemporary glamping.

More than a functional abode, Adina was carefully envisioned to take full advantage of its spectacular surroundings while also seamlessly blending in with nature. Oversized windows and sliding glass doors are must-haves for creating contemporary-style indoor/outdoor living spaces. Unlike rustic wooden cabins that are typically more intimate and isolated, these modern tiny homes open up widely to the outdoors, revealing stylish and sophisticated interiors.

Adina's lounge is virtually surrounded by breathtaking views. The oversized rear window creates the illusion of a full glass wall that blurs the line between the inside and the outside. A simple bench provides cozy seating, and it was custom-made to fit the limited space to perfection. All the seat cushions and covers were also custom-made for a personalized style. The tiny, ultra-slim bookcases flanking the bench are absolutely adorable; they offer storage and double as convenient table tops while taking up minimal space.

"Light and bright" was the short and simple brief for this beautiful vacation home, and it shows all throughout its compact yet cozy interiors. The modern open-concept layout keeps the line of sight unobstructed, resulting in an airy, luminous ambiance. All furniture items were carefully chosen to add functionality without becoming overly bulky. There's no separation between the lounge and the open kitchen, with an informal dining setup doubling as a discrete connecting feature.

You can't have an Aussie tiny house without a breakfast bar, but that usually requires extra length. Adina is not a single-level tiny, which meant it had to use its seven-meter (22.9-foot) length and 2.4-meter (7.8-foot) width wisely. Instead of a separate breakfast bar, the outer section of the L-shaped countertop conveniently turned into one with room for two seats. This leaves enough room for cooking and storage.

The kitchen is small and dainty but properly equipped even for long-term residence. A two-burner gas cooktop and a mini fridge are the main appliances, and there's also a dedicated nook for a microwave oven. Under the countertop, guests will find plenty of drawers of all sizes for convenient storage. The walls weren't overwhelmed with bulky cupboards; instead, a couple of elegant floating shelves increased the kitchen's storage and doubled as decorative items for a lovely, homely look.

Adina's beautiful bathroom is also fully equipped to modern standards, and it even adds considerable storage. It comes with a multiple-drawer vanity and a mirror cabinet and still has sufficient space left for a washing machine.

In terms of style, the talented folks at Artisan Tiny Homes chose a sea of bright white, cleverly balanced out by matte black accents. This way, Adina's interiors feel spacious and airy without becoming overly simplistic. The black touches all throughout the home instantly brighten up the space, adding a fresh, contemporary twist. On the outside, Adina leans more on the rustic side. Natural-toned Cypress cladding with dark tin insertions is a classic combo for tiny house retreats, and it blends beautifully with the surrounding natural environment.

When it comes to accommodation, this custom tiny house isn't so generous. With its limited length and single-loft configuration, it's ideally suited for one or two people at most, which would make it an excellent choice for romantic getaways.

The builders preferred not to add a protection barrier to the loft in order to keep the view uninterrupted; in a small space like this, it's essential to allow the eyes to wander without obstacles for a sense of vast spaciousness. Still, a basic metal barrier and handrail were added for safety. A staircase makes it easier for guests to reach the bedroom, and it doesn't take up a lot of space. To use the space as efficiently as possible, the treads double as open cubbies, including a larger nook for the bar fridge.

The builder's final touch was to add a tiny, easily transportable deck – compact enough to be practical and spacious enough to fit a basic outdoor setup for two. The perfect haven on wheels for such a beautiful location, this Tasmanian tiny house boasts all the qualities of a comfortable weekend retreat wrapped into the warm, delightful atmosphere of a traditional home.
