A Dream Life On The Water In An Amazing House Boat

So many of us aspire to own a home close to the water, and it doesn’t get any closer than this! Inspired by the incredible float homes of British Columbia, this house boat in Auckland, New Zealand is sure to impress.

Perfectly fitting into a 12 meter marina berth, this floating home (affectionally named Blue Turtle) is wonderfully designed to be open, spacious and fully featured despite its size. The home has two bedrooms, a spacious bathroom and enjoys a wonderful open plan kitchen, dining and living space upstairs, all with wrap around decks for amazing indoor / outdoor living.

Located so close to Auckland City, this house boat has panoramic views across the marina and over towards the city beyond. For Olivia and Ryan, it’s a home which enables them to live a dream lifestyle, close to town and yet in a place where they can feel as though they are on permanent holiday.

Enjoy the tour of this wonderful home on the water.

  1. This place was an absolute dream to film! What an amazing home and an incredible location. I hope you all enjoy this weeks episode! With Love, Bryce & Rasa

  2. Wow! This is definitely my dream. Cant wait to return home to NZ, (counting down the months) and build my own tiny house, sadly not a floating boat house. So envious of this beautifully built home.

  3. Great house boat. Did the pizza taste has good as it looked, hope they gave you a slice. Another great video,thanks for posting.

  4. I love the beautiful barn door for the bathroom, it feels like a bit of a missed opportunity to install a shower/bath with the extra space next to the shower area. Also where are all the blinds for the windows?

  5. This house is so beautiful and calming. The interior design and that beautiful kitchen space. Me and my mum always love a spacious kitchen and it so good to see how well build this home is.
