What the photos might not tell you, but we do
This is a houseboat – we recommend guests prone to seasickness to look somewhere else
As seen in the photos, the location changes depending on the season – in the summertime it's in Friedrichshain, during the winter it moves to Tempelhof
A third guest would be on a sofa bed in the living room
There’s a cat who usually lives here – it won’t be around during your stay, but allergies might be a problem
The sink is shared between the bathroom and kitchen
This home comes with a composting toilet
Access to this houseboat is not always straightforward – during the summer months, you have to take a boat to get to the boat
It has an open plan layout with little space for privacy
