Equinox Cabana by Tuuci

A cabana is defined by where you live or who you ask. If you live near the caribbean or Atlantic Ocean, it is a small tent or hut with one open wall that is used as a dressing room.

Ask about a cabana in Miami Beach and learn that it is a private (and expensive) tent in the pool area of a hotel that is rented out for groups of two or more to gather and socialize. These cabanas include serious amenities such as flat-screen plasma TVs, couch, mini-fridge, ceiling fan, food, beverage services and mist sprays.

That same cabana environment is available for the home. Tuuci, the Miami-based designer and manufacturer of luxurious outdoor shade, is able to provide an outdoor living room that is available in multiple shapes and sizes and includes options for a roof and side walls that can withstand winds exceeding 50 mph.

Equinox Cabana structures effortlessly transform any patio, poolside or outdoor landscape into open-air living rooms. The sleek modular design can be customized through lighting and music to walls and seating. The outdoors never felt more luxurious.

Dougan Clarke created Tuuci and is now CEO and chief product architect. He said the company’s Equinox Cabana provides an outdoor retreat.

“I think of this cabana as a getaway where you can lounge in style, yet remain plugged in with all the options that are available to equip it,” he said. “There are power outlets, high-quality lighting and Bluetooth speakers to provide surround sound.

“The cabana acts as an outdoor living room with the option to customize the seating with a bed, bench or L bench. Additionally, curtains or roller blinds can be added to shade the sun or provide privacy. It’s an open-air living room.”

According to Clarke, the Equinox Cabana is designed to bring the ultimate in luxury.

“This sleek shelter gives consumers a chance to be a part of its creation,” he explained. “Begin by selecting a bed or bench and packages for outlets, music and lights. Innovative shade systems complement surrounding furniture and environments and can be the extension of a backyard or a separate poolside accent. The outdoors never felt more luxurious with music and lighting options, trellis roof with trellis sidewalls, and full fabric curtains with tie-backs.”

At California Patio on South Dean Martin Drive, Jose Herrera said cabanas and gazebos are popular for many local backyards, but homeowners need to pay attention to area winds.

“I always ask customers what part of the valley they live in and inquire about how windy it gets in their neighborhood,” Herrera said. “Aluminum and metal cabanas are good and can stand up to the high winds that we get here, but proper placement in the backyard is just as important as the material itself. The high heat and strong sun is also a factor so we sell marine-grade awnings that are durable and more wind-resistant.”

Herrera said a cabana is often purchased to give the backyard a “resort” look and that having a pool isn’t necessary.

“The cabana gives the feeling of a place to go and relax,” she said. “There can be a daybed inside and it becomes a conversation piece or gathering place like your own personal oasis.

Cabanas by Tuuci can include types of fabrics and colors and patterns with either Velcro or zipper ties. It’s a great look and atmosphere ranging in sizes from 7 by 10 feet or 12 by 12 feet and even larger for most backyards.”
