This spell can be used to create a sumptuous cabana of the sort typically associated with a harem or brothel. Furnishings include wall-to-wall shag carpeting or numerous throw rugs, curtains and wall hangings, various articles of erotic art, a king-sized bed with fine linens, a small, well-stocked bar with two stools, an easy chair, a footstool, a coffee table, candles, a fireplace, and a two-person tub with hot and cold running water (with amenities like towels, soap, and scented oils). 

This structure is designed to keep out unwelcome guests, is as strong as a normal stone building regardless of its apparent composition, and includes a sturdy door, and two shuttered windows. It resists flames and fire as if it were stone and is impervious to normal missiles (but not the sort cast by siege engines or giants). The door, shutters, and even chimney are secure against intrusion, the former two being Arcane Locked and the latter secured by an iron grate at the top and a narrow flue. In addition, these three areas are protected by an Alarm spell. 

Leyingman’s Love Shack is also designed for comfort, with good air flow and hand-operated fans for warm weather and a small fireplace for cold. It does not have properties beyond those of a normal structure, however, and extreme heat can adversely affect it and its occupants. 

Finally, a specialized form of Unseen Servant is conjured to serve as a companion to the occupant of the shack, if required, during his stay. 

Material Component: A bottle of Courvousier or similarly fine liquor worth no less than 10 gp. This must be augmented by a small inflatable doll if the benefit of the Unseen Servant spell is to be included. 

Focus: Silver wire and a tiny bell if the benefit of Alarm is to be included.
