A rooftop deck is just one of the many perks of a fully equipped houseboat that sleeps up to 5 people

Docked in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, Jan's beautiful Butterfly Goddess houseboat is a magical place to indulge your dreams of an ocean getaway. Rent for the weekend through Airbnb.
Equipped to sleep up to five guests, the boat boasts a beautiful rooftop deck, master suite with bathroom and fully loaded kitchen to make your stay complete. Breathe in the ocean's fragrance and catch glimpses of dolphins as you watch the sun set from the upstairs deck. As you soon as you board, you'll feel comfortable and right at home. Warm colors and an overstuffed leather couch make you want to take off your shoes and stay awhile.
The couch is a pullout, providing a double bed for added sleeping space to accommodate more guests.
The living room with its two comfy chairs creates a roomy space for relaxing and chatting.
A full-service kitchen features everything you need to prepare meals -- a dorm-sized refrigerator, oven/range, sink and microwave. Glossy marbled countertops and a sparkling gold backsplash add life and elegance.
Roomy counters and generous cabinet space and drawers offer storage and plenty of spots to fix meals, grab a cup of coffee or mix a cocktail.
Enter the master bedroom to find a spacious queen-sized bed in a private room located directly off the living area. Overhead cabinets provide storage, and a small window lets in just the right amount of light. The suite also includes a television.
Inside the master suite is the houseboat's bathroom. The fully equipped lavatory includes a sink/vanity, toilet and stand-up shower.
Head outside to the stairs on the boat's exterior and climb to the top for a sensational treat.
Here you can have a bite to eat on the rooftop deck, or unwind after a long day with a mixed drinks and appetizers.
And don't forget the awe-inspiring sunsets you'll be able to see!
Float away from all your worries and enjoy the close proximity to local restaurants, shopping and plenty of activities. You might want to rent a jet ski or a pontoon during your stay to make the most of this beautiful, tranquil location.
