The outside unit doesn't have to be actually outside
 agreed
but it does need to be outside the thermal envelope   and it also needs to be clean ,capable of being evacuated, and compatible with the refrigerant in use

I did an installers course end of last year on Samsung HP. If you can see the sea have the corrosion protection done or it will fall apart within a couple of years and you cannot do it yourself for reasons above. Warranty etc will be void also.
As for putting the outside unit inside any sort of enclosure is also not on as it sucks in vast quantities of air and has to be in free air space all round. It also produces large amounts of condensate so a drain is required. So if you imagine the quantity of salt laden air going through the fan it is not surprising it will corrode very quickly. Just telling you what they told us.
