With the heat once again descending on Montreal, it's the perfect time for a getaway on the water

But instead of the usual rentals on Airbnb, what better way to fall asleep than listening to waves gently lapping or being lulled into a baby-like coma with the rock of a boat.

Houseboats have it all: access to the water, privacy, areas to cook your food, and a legitimate reason to wear your sailor costume. We rounded up some of the best houseboat rentals listed on Airbnb, and none of them are further than a 1.5-hour drive away from Montreal.

The Cedar

WHERE: Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu, QC

WHY: This loft-style boat is just a few minutes drive from Montreal. The 300 square foot rental is made entirely of cedar and might be the cutest and coziest on the list. The only drawback is there is no shower on the boat

COST: Price:$56 (sleeps 2)

The River Den

WHERE: Wakefield, QC

WHY: This cute little boat sits in a picturesque town. The boat is about as basic as you can get, with no hot water or electricity, but that just adds to the overall charm.

COST: $147

Stéphanic On The St-Laurent

WHERE: Contrecoeur, Quebec
