Island Retreat: A Tropical Tiny House in the Other Florida Keys
Built in 1950, this tiny home has a charming Elvis in “Blue Hawaii” vibe with wood siding, a pyramid hipped roof, and an adorable door with bright green trim.
Coming in at just 400 square feet, this home is smaller than many studio apartments, but the setup doesn’t feel anything like a third-floor walk-up—at least not the ones we’ve lived in. Instead the space is cleverly divided into four rooms, allowing for some much-needed privacy.
The living room is the largest room in the home with sufficient space for (small) sofas, armchairs, and a (small) entertainment center. The room appears larger than it is due to the sloped ceiling and four large windows that bring in an abundance of Florida sunshine.
