Paradise Tiny Homes, a Hawaii-based company, crafts unique and distinctive tiny houses, far from the typical cookie-cutter designs. Their standout model, the Oasis, is built on an 8×24′ trailer, encompassing 260 sqft with a loft and a bathroom. It boasts a six-foot-round window, three roof pitches for a touch of whimsy, exposed ceiling beams, and a gorgeous mango wood bar accessible through the awning pass-through windows.
While the Oasis serves as a foundation, Paradise Tiny Homes prides itself on offering extensive customization, ensuring each build is one-of-a-kind. This Oasis home is now located in Kona, Hawaii! The price for a similar build, both finished and furnished, is $215,000 USD.
Oasis is a charming, whimsical tiny house built by Paradise Tiny Homes in Hawaii for a Kona, Hawaii-based customer. It’s 24 feet long, 14 feet high, and eight feet wide, with a three-foot bump-out section for a shower. This model also boasts three roof pitches, a circle window, board and batten siding on wood framing, and a corrugated metal roof. For extra light, clear roofing has been installed above the shower.
Tiny homes are mostly built for function rather than fun. Oasis by Paradise Tiny Homes bucks the trend. The pass-through kitchen window is one of the most standout features of this build. It lets you have a wet bar on your veranda!
Not only can you pass food and drinks through the window to waiting guests, but you can also set up your entertainment space directly outside the home courtesy of the attached mango wood slab. Pair it with some bar stools, and you’re ready to entertain.
While there’s plenty to keep you occupied outside this tiny house, it’s worth exploring the interior to see what’s in store. Upon entering through the main door, you’ll spot the beautiful and modern kitchen to the right and the spacious, contemporary living room to the left.
Statement Round Window
The living room’s undeniable centerpiece is the expansive round window, providing a breathtaking view of the outdoors. While the walls have been painted in a refreshing white color scheme, there are hints of tropical paradise everywhere you look – from the live edge mango bar to the wooden shelves and fixtures. This area also boasts a vaulted ceiling to maximize the available space.
The living area is deceivingly spacious. There’s room for a counter-height dining table and a sofa. This area also boasts large windows for beautiful views and sunshine! What’s more, you can look up and spot the hammock – perfect for lounging on a warm summer’s day.
While tiny homes typically cater to couples, you’re spoilt for choice in Oasis. The love seat in the living area folds out into an additional bed for last-minute guests.
Paradise Tiny Homes put a great deal of effort into the kitchen to transform it into a home cook’s haven. The exposed beams and live-edge mango slab sills can’t help but be a focal point, but the appliances and layout are the true standout features.
Storage space is maximized through the toe-kick pull-out drawer, extra storage bench, and expanding counter in the custom cabinetry and shelving. There are also high-quality appliances in the form of a washer-dryer combo and an oven.
The kitchen in Oasis is all about making meal preparation effortless and stylish. The seven-foot-long stainless countertops are a breeze to clean, while the adjacent wood storage ledge with cobalt tiles adds some color. There is also a generous quartz composite sink and an on-demand propane water heater for convenience.
While many tiny home creators install small fridges that tuck away into cabinetry, Paradise Tiny Homes knew that function is important. They managed to incorporate a full-size fridge into the custom kitchen.
The kitchen in Oasis has every appliance you can find in a traditional home, including a washer-dryer combo and even a dishwasher! Of course, the highlight is the awning window that opens out to the outdoor bar.
Showers can be an afterthought in tiny homes, but that’s certainly not the case in Oasis. In fact, it was made such a prominent feature that it juts three feet out of the tiny home exterior. The watery tile shower has been framed out in the middle of the space to show off the tile when the bathroom door is open. There is also a dome skylight in the shower for plenty of natural light. The addition of plants at the top makes it feel like you’re showering in a rainforest!
Locally sourced curly mango wood is present throughout this tiny home, but it really finds its place in the bathroom. The corner shelving, window sill, and vanity top all feature this beautiful wood.
However, there’s much more to this bathroom than meets the eye. The vaulted ceilings add the illusion of extra space, while the mirror is positioned to reflect natural light.
The toilet is just one of many features you can customize in an Oasis built by Paradise Tiny Homes. This one is a composting toilet with no drainage pipes needed. However, you can choose from a range of different toilets at no extra cost. The waterproof vinyl flooring also flows seamlessly from the bathroom to the rest of the house.
Every tiny house needs a sleeping area, and the sleeping space in Oasis is particularly beautiful. It’s accessible from a custom-built curved storage staircase. This leads up to the loft area with a gorgeous wood and mango wood banister for both safety and definition.
The sleeping loft is large enough for a queen-sized mattress. It’s established on a storage bed frame with six drawers. This room also boasts plenty of natural lighting, courtesy of the windows. However, it’s also complemented by accent lighting for ambiance.
While the bed is undoubtedly a major drawcard of the bedroom loft, the architectural elements also can’t help but impress. Exposed ceiling beams show off this home’s beautiful curved structure. Two windows on either side also allow for a gentle cross-breeze on those warm summer days.
