Described as a miniature “boutique hotel” on the water, the boat benefits from sun terraces, a spacious living room and a fully equipped kitchen.

The houseboat is managed by Host So Simple – a company that manages and renovates Airbnb properties in Liverpool.

Speaking about the new property, co-founder Joe Davies said it was unlike anything they had managed before.

The 27-year-old told ECHO: “He’s one of those crazy people you see on Airbnb.

“It’s a huge barge with five beds and five bathrooms, it’s a real barge.

“It’s almost like a miniature boutique hotel on the water.”

Since she is so unique, Joe says there have been “back-to-back” bookings since they first put the boat up for sale in June.

He added: “We took it back in June and since then it’s been back-to-back bookings.

“We are seeing that city breaks have changed now after covid.

“People are now making reservations like this just to be in town and hang out with their families.

“They think we don’t have a big enough house at home and we want something a little more quirky than your average cabin that most people have stayed in lately.

“While a family might have gone to a country cottage to relight in the past, this boat was a happy medium of something different and quirky, but also staying right in the heart of the city . “

The houseboat is based in Liverpool Marina and is a short walk from the Liverpool Yacht Club.

Adventurers will also appreciate the proximity to the water sports center, which allows guests to rent kayaks and paddle boards.

Those who prefer a more relaxed stay can simply enjoy the surroundings of the Albert Dock.

Due to its location, hosts are primarily interested in accepting bookings from families only to keep the peace in the area.

Joe said: “It’s such a great contribution to the marina, it’s the biggest boat out there.

“Because it’s such a peaceful area, the owners would prefer not to take any party reservations because they want to preserve the beautiful area.

“The owners want to be respectful to the marina and other boat owners.”
