聽著海聲迷路旅居 | 旅人宿泊之地 Casa Ostia: The Home for Travelers

深處都市的我們,心底都藏著一首關於大海的詩。遠方潮浪的拍打,像是那層深藍海水低沉音節,起身循著浪聲走入起霧,心心念念的大海於眼前豁然展開。

離海五米之美

晨起,站在面海露台上,輕柔的海風溫和地拂過臉龐,像是情人間最纏綿的呢喃。旅居於墾丁迷人的小漁村萬里桐,離海約5米為最美潮間帶與海域保護區,將建築設計為旅行風格的海邊老房子,面海而生舒朗錯落沒有過多修飾,裝潢大多為老木製品、鏽鐵、斑駁石牆,毫無刻意的喧嘩,另以綠植稍作點綴自然簡單。房型名稱徜徉著文學浪漫之詩意,A棟以地中海旅行風格房間命名《海邊卡夫卡》、《卡布里之歌》、《月光海岸》,而B棟以異國的流浪的波西米亞風格為主的《南風之地》跟《橄欖樹灣》,以雙人房為主適合情侶與夫妻,透過口碑與社群行銷將旅居知名度打開。

徜徉海底風貌

傍晚,看燦爛的霞光灑向天際,像金色的鳳凰展開五彩的羽翼,與海水連成一片相互映照,那麼壯觀迷人,從旅居走入海和熱帶魚共泳玩耍或沿著海岸散步,途中小沙灘可玩玩水、曬曬太陽。藉由旅居作為載體,旅居主人Klein透露求學時期就讀電子工程領域,因為喜歡衝浪,讓自己生活在自然生態中,故在墾丁落腳,建立旅居目前有開設三館經營接近十年,談及現今最大的危脅是近幾年氣候異常。他反覆強調與自然共生,提供軟體從服務與實務去精進,除了旅居以外,更想帶客人去體驗海底世界的多重面貌,伴隨著珊瑚礁、熱帶嶼與海龜,入住後感受美好生活樣貌,讓旅人回到城市思考著努力的意義。

品嚐慢時光

把自然引進空間,喝一杯手沖咖啡,窩在椅子上舒服地曬個全身日光浴,離海岸線旁的海龜咖啡館也是休閒娛樂的好場所,讓時光在陽光裡慢慢溜走。設計旅行居所,旅居主人Klein想起了村上春樹《遠方的鼓聲》,從進入這個空間開始,內心的浮塵已漸漸被衝散,只留下了一隅平靜讓你去探索細節上的每一處美好。早晨醒來,側耳傾聽遠方大鼓聲,想要去旅行對於這個建築想像的開始,我彷彿聽到一處一景像夢一樣裝進記憶長廊,等待下一次的回放。

Five Meters of Oceanic Beauty

Dawn arrives, we stand on the terrace that faces the sea. The soft ocean breeze brushes against our skin with warmth, like whispering a lover’s most intimate words. Residing in a charming fishing village in Kenting called Wanlitong, Casa Ostia is surrounded by the most beautiful intertidal zone and marine conservation areas. Homely and natural, the buildings are designed after old beach houses without much embellishments and decorated with antique wood, rusty metal, and mottled stone walls. No intentional exaggerations, only the simple and intuitive beautifications of greenery. The room names all ring with a poetic romance, such as “Kafka,” “Capri,” “Moonlight.” The rooms in Casa Aperta are designed with a mediterranean style, while the rooms in Casa Ostia—”Sirocco” and “Olive”—radiate with this wandering exoticism and Bohemian flair and are designed mainly for couples. With such distinctive styles, the guest house successfully built its popularity through the establishment of a positive image and effective social media management.

What’s Under the Sea

As dusk approaches, the glowing sun sets below the horizon like a golden phoenix spreading its technicolor wings and soaring above the reflective waters—how majestic and captivating! Walk into the water to swim with the tropical fish or take a stroll down the shore, enjoy your time at the beach for some fun while basking in the sun. Using the guest house as a medium, Klein Wu, the owner of Casa Ostia, actually majored in electronic engineering back in college. Enjoyed surfing and spending his time in nature, he decided to move to Kenting to run a guesthouse of his own. Opened for ten years and having established three different buildings by now, Casa Ostia now faces its biggest threat: climate change. Klein reiterates the importance of a symbiosis between humans and nature and aspires to utilize better software and client service to achieve his goal. Besides the guest house, he also wishes to take his customers on an adventure under the sea, to see the versatile nature of the creatures in the ocean. With the company of coral reefs, tropical islands, and sea turtles, his guests can better enjoy the warming hospitality and return to the city with a new understanding of what it means to live life.

A Slow Savor of Time

Invite nature into the living space, enjoy a cup of pour over, and lay back comfortably for a sunbath—Sea Turtle Cafe is the perfect place for both leisure and entertainment, to let time slip through the beams of sunlight. When designing Casa Ostia, Klein drew inspiration from Haruki Murakami’s travel narrative, “A Distant Drum.” From the moment of stepping into the guest house, any form of dismay and anxiety gradually dissolves and is replaced by an inner peace that seeks for the beauty in every detail. Waking up to the distant drums in the morning and finally understanding the owner’s aspiration to finish building the guest house, I allowed each scene and detail of Casa Ostia to be placed into a hall of memories, already anticipating for the next replay.
