The only thing dreamier than beach cottage? A beach cottage on the water. Literally. With design details like beaded board paneling, a cheerful turquoise and orange palette, rope detailing, and a painted ceiling, this Charleston, SC houseboat serves up all the charm of a classic beach cottage—plus 360-degree water views (including of the Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge). Docked at a private marina slip in downtown Charleston, the gutted and rehabbed boat sleeps 3 (queen size bed in the captain’s quarters and a daybed with a twin mattress in the main cabin living area) and boasts a full bath, heat and AC, and a large deck onboard. Soft wave-lapping sounds and gentle rocking to sleep included. Sail away here.
