Home truths

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
