this fascinating mini home, listed on luxury home rental brand plum guide, floats along the spree river in berlin. entirely hand built by the host, claudius, the getaway artist studio space allows guests to experience serenity and connect with nature — an alternative lifestyle from the bustling city of berlin.‘waking up in the houseboat feels like opening your eyes to an urban utopia,’ plum guide describes.

with a skylight installed right above the platform bed, guests can gaze at the stars as they fall asleep. out on the deck, an herb garden, BBQ grill and a sound system can be found, while inside the compact home, one will find a fully equipped kitchen, a rich collection of books and a portable wifi router. decorated with lively plants and hanging light bulbs, the mid-century interior is suited for people of all ages.

comprised of handcrafted furnishings and built on 200 year old wooden panels, the floating home is the ideal place for an environmentally-conscious guest. it’s worth noting that ‘floating island’ isn’t a luxurious escape — it comes with a dry compost toilet, and the sink is shared between the bathroom and kitchen.

this cozy floating home promises an experience that won’t disappoint. ideal for every season, the mobile house can easily move locations, depending on the weather and tide levels. in the summer, the house is anchored mid-lake, while in the winter, the boat stations on the outskirts of friedrichshain.
