Seattle’s houseboat culture is unique as are the homes. It is not unusual to see a million dollar home floating right next to a tiny $200,000 studio. Residents say they are “watered” as opposed to grounded.
Located in the lively neighborhood of Zeeburg, this Holland vessel invites visitors to climb aboard and dive right in. Guests not only enjoy swimming in the harbor but also panoramic views from sunrise to sunset.
Before you go off the deep and decide to move the family onto a houseboat, why not get your toes wet first by renting one on Airbnb? This four-bedroom modern beauty floats in North Holland in the Netherlands just behind Olympic Stadium.
In the ‘90s Sleepless in Seattle brought houseboats back into the public’s consciousness and their popularity continues to grow. This 30-year-old vessel was once put out to sea, but was fully restored in 2013. The owner/artisan opens the houseboat to guests when he travels for business.
