We’ve all been on staycations, and even seacations , but if you are looking for something truly unique and memorable, you have to check out houseboats! A one-of-a-kind luxury experience, where the amenities and décor of five star hotels meet the cosy, intimate experience of an AirBnB, staycationing on a houseboat is the next new way to holiday. So whether you are looking to celebrate a birthday in style, or just enjoy some peace and quiet out on the sea, here is the ultimate list of houseboat rentals in Hong Kong for you to book your next vacation!

Vintage | British-style antique houseboat

Nestled in the heart of the Aberdeen Fishing Village, where you can truly find the old ways of Hong Kong still thriving, is the three-storied antique British-style houseboat. With 2,100 sq.ft of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, living and dining room, a fully equipped open kitchen, AND a front deck and rear balcony – this is bigger than many apartments in Hong Kong!  All you need for the perfect night is to grab some scrumptious seafood from Aberdeen, take the sampan to the houseboat, and you can watch the sun set on the gorgeous harbour. Please note that only single night stays are permitted on the Vintage.

They also have a full kitchen with an oven, as well as a BBQ on the large rooftop terrace, so do bring your own food to cook to make your drifting neighbours jealous.
