Livin' on the Edge is just one of those stylish fleets offering the ideal seafaring experience. Let's take a look at what this wonderful fleet has in store for its temporary dwellers.
On the outside, Livin' on the Edge just looks like your everyday yacht. But really, there is so much more to this 42-foot (12.8-meter) Gibson houseboat than meets the eye.
Even the deck area is simple by design — but who needs extravagance topside with such picturesque views?
To see this vessel in all of her glory, though, we need to make our way inside.
You'll see that the interiors are charming, comfy and well-decorated. Vibrant curtains and cushions add a warm, homely aura to this lovely houseboat.
More often than not, you won't be traveling solo. A pullout sofa bed will give you full peace of mind over how to best accommodate your accompanying family members or friends.
Ample shelving space makes the kitchen practical and complete. As you can see, a microwave, stove and an oven are part of the houseboat package too.
You may be Livin' on the Edge, but winding down is never an issue. After a full day exploring the best of Destin and Fort Walton, renters can readily relax on a bed that's sure to engulf them with comfort and put them at ease.
You can easily draw the curtains whenever you feel like calling it a day. Simple decorative pieces adorn the bedside table, giving the bedroom that classical touch and a soothing vibe.
Holidaymakers are always looking for a great story to tell. Livin' on the Edge is a houseboat rental that's sure to leave happy memories. So, if you happen to be around that area, why not make the most of this exclusive nautical escape? You'll definitely find it's worth it.
