This $ 5.5 million Miami floating mansion isn’t your average houseboat
Americans everywhere are asking if they can use their $ 1,400 stimulus checks to rent a half-night in this floating Miami mansion.
The $ 5.5 million floating house was available to rent for $ 2,500 per night on the Airbnb Vrbo type site since yesterday, but apparently the demand was overwhelming. The list appears to have been withdrawn this morning.
This four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath mansion currently floats off Miami’s Palm Island and spans 2,700 square feet, plus over 1,500 square feet of decks, according to the manufacturer’s website.
To buy this 75-foot-long luxury home, which was originally listed for $ 5.9 million, you’ll need a driver’s license, boating safety certificate, and a driver’s license – or you can just hire a qualified captain, that’s how tenants appreciate the Floating Mansion.
The 2,300-square-foot roof is covered with solar panels and rain collectors, making the yacht completely self-sufficient in power and purified rainwater, according to the manufacturer’s website.
And don’t worry. The barge can withstand category 4 or 5 hurricanes, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
It anchors itself using leg-like structures to hold onto the bottom of the bay, more recently off Palm Island, that some local residents said undermines its appeal as an environmentally friendly vessel.
The exterior is sleek white with trendy wood panels and expansive walls of windows that can open for seamless indoor-outdoor living, TikTok user and Florida real estate broker Jason Matouk showed in his step-by-step video tour.
The retractable outdoor patio on the first floor has a summer kitchen with a grill, an outdoor shower and a platform that lowers directly into the water, so guests can get out and swim or board another boat, as shown by Matouk’s visit.
The first floor is an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen with floor to ceiling windows leading out to a large patio.
The living room is staged with white Brazilian furniture and a large TV, although it is sold unfurnished, according to an Architectural Digest visit.
The dining room has a modern swirling light fixture and a circular table.
The glossy white kitchen features a massive island with a built-in range and height-adjustable hood. The cabinets fit in perfectly with a built-in Miele wine fridge, dishwasher, steamer, coffee maker and oven.
The captain’s quarters on the first floor have a murphy bed and a stone bathroom with a rainfall showerhead. The room opens to the boat’s navigation system, which is connected to smart technology throughout the house.
Upstairs, the owner’s suite has floor-to-ceiling windows, a jacuzzi, a private terrace and a bathroom with a double rain shower head and double sinks.
The other bedrooms – including a VIP suite which matches the owner’s suite – also have floor-to-ceiling windows and luxurious finishes.
