The phrase “sleeping with the fishes” will have a less sinister meaning for the owners of these new homes in Dubai.

The Floating Seahorse is a partially-submerged property development dreamed up by Dubai’s Kleindienst Group with completion scheduled for late 2016.

The development will comprise 42 units to be moored near The Heart of Europe islands, part of Dubai’s artificial island project The World.

So, is it a boat? Or is it a villa? Essentially it is a boat without a motor.

Each Floating Seahorse will have three levels: an underwater level, a main floor and an upper deck.

The master suite, including the main bedroom and ensuite, will be located on the underwater level and will feature floor to ceiling windows and a freestanding bath.

An artificial reef will be built around the area where the boats will be docked, creating a protected environment for the local marine life and ensuring stunning views for the boats occupants.

The upper deck will have a glass-bottomed spa, which will act like a skylight for the living room below, a mini bar, outdoor shower and a day bed.

If you want to take dip in the surrounding Gulf sea, just jump straight off the main level which features another bedroom and small kitchen.

Described as “holiday retreat” for marine and yachting enthusiasts, the boats are said to cost $Dh6.5 million ($2.3 million).

However, if you want to grab one for yourself, better get in quick because 35 have reportedly already sold.

    W = Worrisome What do you find worrisome or negative about this idea of living in a floating seahorse home? Example with examples of what could go wrong or what worries you.

    N = Need to Know What else do you need to know or find out about this idea of floating homes in Dubai? What additional information would help you to decide if you could live this way?

    Does the water ever rise? Because if I lived there I wouldn’t want my house to flood. How do you get around like if you want to go the shops?

    The only thing that would convince me to live in one of those houses is that I would be rich and famous and Id be known as the first black person to live in a floating sea horse house.

    1. Excite: What would excite me if I lived in this floating seahorse home is when I go down to the underwater room because I would see all of the sea life.

    2. Worrisome: Some things that would frighten me is if the glass would break and the whole
    room would flood.

    3. Need: Something I need to know is if there are any blinds so if I see a shark I could just close the blinds if I get scared.

    4. Suggestion: I suggest you have a boat so you can get to the shops on the mainland and fun places easier.

    E = I’m excited about having a coral reef in my front yard and I can see a thousand miles across the sea without getting wet.

    W = I’m worried a fish or a sea creature might bang on the glass and it would either brake or keep me up all night.

    N = I need to know how far is it to society by boat and how often big water animals swim by.

    S = Using small chains to show the house won’t float away. Having a little room off the house
    so you can enter the water as soon as you woke up, you go in and shut and lock the door behind you and open the door in front of you and go out the moment you shut the second door the little room will drain so when you go back in you will not get your house wet.
