Come along to explore this delightful floating home and its artsy living area

Welcome to Villa San Juan. This floating home, moored at the Marina Cortez in Harbor Island, is ready to accommodate anyone who wants a piece of the San Diego waterfront.
Surrounded by a fleet of houseboat neighbors, this two-bedroom rental is well-equipped to comfortably host up to four guests - and even has a swimming pool on-site. Pretty impressive, don't you think? And there's plenty more where that came from! As we tour the floating villa for ourselves, prepare to be charmed by its incredible amenities.

A splash of green gleefully spruces up this houseboat's exteriors. According to the AirBnB listing, the railing along the top deck is a fairly recent addition.
A special sign warmly greets everyone who chooses to enter the Villa San Juan through its nifty side entrance.
For those idyllic summer days, there's plenty of seating along the upper deck.
Don't rule out getting a bit of R&R by downstairs, though: the lower deck may be more demurely decorated but it offers everything one needs to unwind.
But that's enough of the outside - the artsy interiors await! Couches of different colors and sizes animate the living room. In true tiny living fashion, there's a pullout sofa-bed standing by.
The kitchen prefers to focus on the finer details. It is fitted with a small counter-top oven, a stove top, microwave and full-size fridge. A dash of wall decor adds a special glimmer to this part of the houseboat too.
We absolutely love the villa's fold-out dining table! A cheerful flower arrangement ensures the dining area is always homey.
Modern lighting fixtures and an exquisite piece of photographic wall art embellish the master bedroom.
Both bedrooms in this floating home are brimming with comfy fittings, including queen-size beds and cushions abound.
And each bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom. This one opts for modest blue tones when setting its serene mood.
The second bedroom is not too different from the first. Again, wall art is what gives this room a distinct personality.
In contrast, the second bathroom is much more vibrant than its counterpart. Bright curtains and towels are juxtaposed with the basin's darker hues, ultimately creating a cheerful atmosphere with a hint of elegance.
