What I Love About My Small Home:
I love...being surrounded by the feeling of peace and nature both inside and outside my home.
I love...the openness of the large great room, the soaring 10 foot tall ceilings, and all the windows that catch the gentle tropical breeze.
I love...the location, on the mountain slopes of Maui, with amazing views all the way to the ocean from my neighborhood.
I love...coming home to my tropical zen space!
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
Overall, the two greatest challenges would be working to personalize this rental and also living with the unusual floorplan. One fun challenge was changing out the very unique kitchen cabinet fronts made from garden trellis (not such a great idea for cleanliness in a kitchen!) to a simple beadboard cut to fit. It also took some time to adjust to the layout of the place and having my bathroom in the kitchen and having my shower in my small den. My "den" was too small to accommodate my bed, so I decided instead to put it in the great room in a recessed nook in the corner.
