A little dream came true and we spent our last night in Cape Town in a tiny house. I’m very interested in the topic: tiny house and read a lot about it in Germany before we started our travels. And as I searched for accommodation for our night before we have to leave South Africa I found the cute Copia Eco Cabin on Instagram. I contacted the owner Luca immediately and booked one night.
The Tiny House
The tiny-house movement is an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. As of 2018, there is no set definition as to what constitutes a tiny house. However, a residential structure under 500 square feet (46 m2) is generally considered a tiny home. Originally, the tiny-house movement with origin in the United States is better known as caravan parks. The Copie Eco Cabin is made of old shipping container converted into an amazing living space. With some solar panels on the roof itself supplies with electricity.
The Story behind Copia
Lucas, the founder, and owner of Copia, started the idea 3 years while scrolling around on a popular social website when he came across a picture of a used shipping container that someone had converted into an amazing living space. He always knew that he would like to do something on his family farm and start his own container conversion project. Slowly but surely as the project went on. And now, he has three beautiful Eco Cabins on his farm area for guest around the world.
How do you get to Copia Eco Cabin
The best way to reach the Copia Cabin is by car. You will need almost 1,5 hours from Cape Town.
