Candy Mansion with an Ice Cream Swimming Pool in Florida

So yes, absolutely nothing about this house is tiny by any stretch of the imagination, but it *is* alternative and unspeakably unique! And if Jenna from Tiny House Giant Journey loved it enough to give us a tour of the space, then it’s worth giving it a chance. Andrew turned this 11-bedroom mansion into a candy-themed vacation getaway in Florida.

There’s an ice-cream-cone-shaped pool, a life-sized game of Candy Land, an arcade, a Hersey spa, rival Pepsi and Coke-themed bedrooms, a bedroom that’s also a ball pit, and so much more. This amazing property in Orlando is the perfect spot for a family reunion since it can sleep up to 52 people! Which room would you choose?

VIDEO: Wackiest home ever?

Highlights:

  • Andrew’s goal was to work 125-hour weeks in his 20s so he could retire by age 30 and dedicate his time and energy to enjoying his children as they grew up. And that’s what he did!
  • But after his kids were nearly grown — and much of his money was gone — he needed something else. And transforming an 11-bedroom home into a Candy-themed getaway was the obvious (to him) choice!
  • The home’s been open for about 12 years and people love coming to check out the unique bedrooms, themed after different candies, sweet treats, and pop culture lore.
  • Outdoors is nearly as amazing as inside, with a pool the shape of an ice cream cone, a life-sized Candy Land game, and mini-golf.
  • There’s a movie theater, laser tag, karaoke, and even a “murder mystery” you can solve during your stay.

    Cute, but this is so not a tiny house.

      Not being a tiny house doesn’t mean it’s unrelated to tiny living. For example, the focus is each room and not the entire mansion. Guests have to choose which room to stay in, it’s not like they’re living in the entire mansion, and it’s part of the movement to promote creativity, which having each room with a different design does make it an example of and can inspire people to come up with unique designs for their own home…

    Not sure how this ends up on a tiny house blog. Zillow Gone Wild, maybe, but not Tiny House Talk.

      Well…

      A) It was on Tiny House Giant Journey, that alone gets it a mention…

      B) The point is each room, you’re not going to be staying in the whole place! Along with how creative each room design is, which can be used to inspire people for their own creative designs for their homes.

      C) Talk means discussion and the Tiny House movement was never only about size but about looking at alternatives, promoting creativity, rethinking how housing works, and eliminating waste so people can live more efficient lives… So it was never limited to only one type of structure, way of life, or one size range for everyone, in all situations.

      This is why even RV’s get shown, along with ADU’s, container homes, cob houses, yurts, tree houses, etc. While tiny living doesn’t mean you have to live in your own separate house, as apartment living counts too, and people can choose alternatives like community living where resources and costs are shared… So there’s a lot more to it than just size…
