Jack Dorsey Has A $10 Million Home, But He Fantasizes About These Gorgeous Houseboats

Jack Dorsey and his house by the Golden Gate Bridge

Twitter and Square cofounder Jack Dorsey has a thing about living by large bodies of water.

Airbnb recently asked Dorsey to put together a wishlist of places he wanted to stay on the site that lets strangers rent out their homes and other forms of lodging. He picked 15 houseboats.

You’d think he’d have enough ocean in sight, having bought a $10 million house in San Francisco overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge earlier this year.

Perhaps by way of explanation, he quoted Pablo Neruda in May: “I need the sea because it teaches me.”

$166 a night for a vintage houseboat in the centre of Amsterdam.

$191 per night for this white-walled, modern houseboat, also in central Amsterdam.

$136 per night for this Amsterdam houseboat on the Amstel river. The sleeping quarters are a bit cramped.

This two-level Amsterdam houseboat is farther from the centre, but a comparative bargain at $139 per night.

Moving on to Sicily: This houseboat is more boat than house, but only costs $88 a night.

For $128 a night, just a room in a Parisian houseboat. But it's by the Eiffel Tower!

Now we're talking! $9,567 to charter a private yacht in Turkey.

Back to Amsterdam. $152 a night. The efficiently compact kitchen is the best part.

$140 a night in Copenhagen. It's sleek and modern, with a roofdeck—just like Twitter's new headquarters!

$165 a night for this Frank Lloyd Wright-esque houseboat in a suburban part of Amsterdam.

$191 a night for a houseboat-villa. The host can pick you up from the train station in his electric boat.

$179 for a room in a luxury houseboat. Kayak, bicycles, and fur-lined deck chairs included!

$120 a night for this eclectically designed Copenhagen houseboat. Check out those walls.

One more from Amsterdam. $126 a night gets you a compact place with a Mexican restaurant across this street. (Don't they have those in San Francisco?)
