A Small, Secret Abode Enveloped by the Scent of a Cinnamon Tree

It was a sunny day, and your laughter and the sunshine fell like golden coins strewn across the pavements with a jingle. Away from the main road, passing by ordinary townhouses, you see several elderly ladies enjoying the nice weather and chatting casually in front of a blue overhead security door. Walking briskly, you turn down an unassuming alleyway and lay eyes upon a lovable neighborhood consisting of compact guesthouses and coffee shops. Tainan Tree House, a small, white townhouse emitting dim light through black framed windows, is like a puzzle, portraying the story of a congenial home.



A compact, congenial abode guarded by a cinnamon tree

Pushing open the wooden door, you are greeted by the warm interior ambiance. The raised wooden platform by the interior wall hand-crafted from wooden window frames creates a compact living area. Farther in, you find a dining area where guests can gather and chat together, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a verdant backyard, all of which embrace visitors with hospitality. The entire building accommodates one group of exclusive guests at a time, allowing travelers to rest their feet in complete ease in this cozy and carefree space.


You and your companions gather beside the French windows, holding cushions in your arms while snacking, sharing stories, and trying to keep your laughter down. Happy hours like these always fly by as if a magician had secretly adjusted the clocks to a later hour. As dusk falls, the aroma from the hot pot dinner encompasses you, reminding you that it’s time to take a seat at the table, to savor delicious food and share more happy times with your companions. Bubbles overflow from soda bottles while you celebrate with youthful exuberance on this refreshing evening.


Stepping out into the backyard, you look back upon those smiling faces through the French windows. The cinnamon tree to one side quietly guards this small abode as it always does. In this moment, you are struck by the unprecedented happiness on the faces of your companions illuminated by the warm interior glow.


Staying in two rooms that are as comfy as your own home

It’s late at night, and you walk upstairs along the gentle steel-blue wall toward the bedrooms. Both the two-person and four-person rooms are lovely and simple, and are perfect for a group of friends to leisurely spend time together, feeling right at home.


You can see the traces of the old building from the roof, as if the simplicity of past times has been preserved in this space. Lying on the bed on the wooden floor in the four-person room, you are reluctant to close your eyes, eager to continue the unfinished dialogue. Without knowing who whispered the last words, you all fall deep asleep, hoping this beautiful shared dream will never end. Right beside the French windows of the tranquil and comfortable two-person room stands the cinnamon tree. The leather sofa makes a perfect spot for bedtime reading. Afterwards, you jump into the shower and let the steaming water wash away your exhaustion before falling asleep in the accompanying scent of cinnamon.


A small piece of paradise embracing sunlight and tranquility

Good morning! You look out upon the alleyway landscape through the windows and see the sunlight and shadows dancing across your slumbering friends’ bodies. Even birds can be heard chirping in rhythm with your common dream. In another room, a boy briskly pulls open the curtains, letting the serene morning energy in to fill the space. You smile, feeling as if those wonderful nighttime dreams now continue in the waking world.


The wooden window frame collage reminds you of nostalgic memories from bygone times, while an old-fashioned fan disperses your laughter and conversation throughout the space. The simplicity and beauty of life gradually ferments into something fantastic in this small abode exclusively for you. It’s time to bid farewell to Tainan Tree House. You walk into the backyard again and let the sun warm your body. A mild scent spreads around the backyard while birds chirp and the cinnamon branches dance in the breeze. You stretch your body, a smile upon your face, caressing the bark of the tree with your hand. You notice cat scratches and feel the traces of life in the tree bark as you make a secret wish before saying goodbye. After returning to the city, from time to time, you recall the cinnamon tree in the backyard of that small, secret abode. The green leaves shimmering under the sun will forever retain the memories of that balmy journey.
