Short-term housing rental company Airbnb’s latest stunt is a floating house that’s been traveling down the River Thames in London. The catch? You can actually stay there for a night.

The listing, simply titled Floating House, was designed by architects and twin brothers Nick and Steve Tidball. It features two bedrooms, one bathroom, a dog kennel, a book collection and a private garden. The designers say they “were inspired to create a fairy tale structure in the middle of London – something that would allow people to see the city from a different angle.”

This is a real, functional house — and you can enter to win a stay for four people on May 22. Oh, you’ll just have to follow the house rules, including “no swimming in the Thames” and no “acts of piracy.”

Here’s another view of the house floating past the London Eye:

This pic: The house going past the London Eye The fully functioning Floating House will sail down the Thames to celebrate new rules that mean that Londoners – like the rest of the UK – can earn a 15 per cent pay rise* by sharing their homes through sites like Airbnb. Passing under Tower Bridge before gliding past the Shard on its maiden voyage, the House will meander along the river throughout the week until Saturday 22 May.
