Is it a cottage? Is it a boat? Why, Superman, it's both! Jokes aside, this is quite a magnificent little dwelling. Within this houseboat's 520 square feet (48.31 square meters), guests will find two floors' worth of amusement, relaxation and comfort.
Enjoy the summery harbor views in style as you settle yourself in your own private deck. There's a gas grill right by those tables if you want to get a barbecue going.
But the fun doesn't stop when you enter this humble abode. With an open-plan design that incorporates a living room, dining area and kitchen with bar bench, guests can effortlessly take the party inside after sundown.
Not feeling in the party mood? Then snuggle up in the living room – it has all the homely facilities anyone needs to feel at ease.
If you want some low-key dinnertime entertainment, the widescreen TV is not too far away from the sleek wooden dining table.
Stainless steel appliances are the norm in this houseboat's kitchen.
It includes a lively arrangement of classic cupboards, modern sink and wall decor with a witty sense of humor.
