Imagine stepping into the Cakora by EcoVillages, your luxurious yet sustainable haven nestled in the picturesque landscape of Belize. As a finalist in the Best Interiors category, this EcoVillages creation isn't just a home—it's your own personal retreat, blending Caribbean charm with an eco-conscious design.

Forget what you've known about 'tiny homes'. This isn't about downsizing, but about upgrading your lifestyle, making a statement of luxury and environmental commitment. The minimalist design of Cakora, coupled with the rustic ambiance of Belize, promises to offer more than just comfort.

A Look Inside

Step inside Aruna's Tiny Home and you'll be instantly captivated by the seamless blend of high-end luxury and minimalist design. Every inch of the 667 square foot interior is thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed. You're greeted by a bright, open living space, where natural light pours in through large, energy-efficient windows, illuminating the sleek, modern furnishings.

Your eyes will be drawn to the state-of-the-art kitchen, equipped with high-end appliances cleverly integrated into the design to maximize space without sacrificing functionality or style. You'll be enticed to whip up gourmet meals with fresh, local ingredients. It's the perfect blend of style and practicality, an ideal setting for both quiet relaxation and entertaining guests.

As you move through the home, you'll notice how the minimalist aesthetic is complemented by luxury touches. The bathroom, for instance, features a rainfall shower and premium fixtures that you'd expect in a five-star hotel. The bedroom, too, is a sanctuary of comfort, with a plush, queen-size bed and ample storage cleverly built into the design.

Now, step outside onto the 286 square foot exterior space, where the minimalist design continues. Here you'll find a private patio, perfect for sunset cocktails or morning yoga sessions. Additionally, there's an option for a pool upgrade, providing you with your own personal oasis.

This isn't just a tiny home, it's a carefully curated experience. It's about embracing a lifestyle that values quality over quantity, luxury over excess. It's about living your best life, in a home that's as extraordinary as you are.

What Makes It Stand Out

The Cakora stands out as a finalist in the Best Interiors category not just for its luxurious and sustainable design, but for how it redefines tiny home living with a blend of Caribbean charm and eco-conscious elements in Belize. Its interiors are a masterclass in maximizing space without sacrificing style or functionality, featuring high-end appliances and premium fixtures that elevate everyday living to an art form. Beyond its beautiful aesthetics, Cakora's commitment to sustainability through the use of reclaimed materials, energy-efficient appliances, and thoughtful integration with its natural surroundings sets a new standard for luxury living that's both conscious and chic.
