Vrbo Recreated SpongeBob SquarePants’ Pineapple House — Take a Virtual Tour
To celebrate the release of “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run,” Vrbo and Paramount teamed up for the ultimate listing: a rental inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants’s pineapple under the sea. No, it isn’t located in Bikini Bottom. And no, it isn’t technically under the sea. The companies transformed Southern California’s historic Water Tower in Huntington Beach to assume the form of the sponge’s pineapple abode — one that overlooks the serene ocean.
Can’t get to Huntington Beach? Not a problem. You could take an immersive, 360-degree tour of all three floors of the property on Vrbo’s property listing online. The property has four bedrooms and three baths and could sleep eight people. On the spacious first floor, SpongeBob’s signature float couches are recreated to a tee. Makeshift seaweed, jellyfish, and florals hang from the ceiling to give it that Bikini Bottom flair. The kitchen is modeled after the Krusty Krab. (No word on whether Krabby Patties are readily available.)

Like every humble abode, the rental also has a portrait gallery wall with images of characters, such as Gary, SpongeBob’s pet snail. The property is also decked out with a variety of board games and flat screen TVs. The bedrooms are less busy in terms of the themed decor, but the views of the sprawling ocean are spectacular. The pièce de résistance, however, is the Water Tower’s curved pineapple exterior.
“Families can book cabins, condos, castles, treehouses, and train cars on Vrbo, but this is the first time we’ve had a gigantic pineapple on our platform,” Lish Kennedy, vice president of global brand marketing at Vrbo, said in a statement. “We’re glad people can tour the Pineapple Over the Sea virtually and enjoy the new movie at home together.”
