All aboard the coolest Airbnb ever! It’s half house, half boat.
The two-bedroom, one-bathroom boat is known as the Floating House and has everyone talking.
It’s a boat that has been transformed to look and function exactly like a cozy little house.
It has all the usual features of a house, including a living room, bedrooms and working bathroom. However it has somethings you wouldn’t expect to find on a house that floats on the water– for instance a front lawn, doghouse and apple tree.
The home, which is now in London, guarantees the best views of the city and has been spotted floating near the London Eye. According to Airbnb the United Kingdom has become one of the leading Countries to list properties on the site.
Nick and Steve Tidball, the Floating House designers, described the inspiration behind their creation on the Airbnb site: “For the Floating House, we were inspired to create a fairy tale structure in the middle of London – something that would allow people to see the city from a different angle.”
While many Londoners think the home is a set, the Tidball brothers break the rumor, saying they wanted to create something that resembled a real home, on the inside and out.
“It was crucial to us that this was a real house, not just a stage set. One that Airbnb guests would feel truly comfortable in. That’s why it had to provide more than just bedrooms and a bathroom. Visitors will get to enjoy a hand-picked book collection, a dog kennel, and their very own private garden – the kind of things that make a house a home.”
