The 212-square-foot Orca houseboat is delightfully trimmed in pink. It was originally built in 1982 and received a thoughtful renovation in 2017.
Whether you’ve been fantasizing about the life aquatic or have been searching for the perfect opportunity to test out a tiny living, this itty-bitty houseboat has tons of appeal.
It is conveniently located near the downtown of the district. Recently remodeled, the houseboat features reclaimed bamboo flooring, butcher-block kitchen counters, custom cabinets, as well as a new steel hull—which means the home will require very low maintenance costs. Both the bedroom and living area open out to the water for natural light and fresh air.

Despite its small size, the houseboat makes efficient use of every square inch inside. With rustic wood paneling, the home also has plenty of built-in shelving.
The quaint yet highly functional kitchen features butcher block countertops, as well as a skylight which allows natural light to seep inside.
Another luxury feature is the combined stovetop and oven. The freshly painted, custom cabinets are also new.
A lovely breakfast nook has been cleverly built into the corner of the kitchen.
The wood paneling continues all throughout the home, creating a stylish, uniformed aesthetic. The living area contains a plush couch, as well as built-in closet space and shelving. The small bedroom is located toward the back. It features a nicely sized window that opens up to a smaller deck.
The bathroom is also sited in the back.
The houseboat has two decks. The larger one can be easily accessed from the kitchen/living room. It has a secured container garden, along with a handmade driftwood bench.
Orca houseboat is docked at the north side of Lake Union. It is conveniently located near Seattle’s downtown.
