Nobody! Not even… Squidward's house.
— Patrick Star, "The Secret Box"

122 Conch Street is the address of Squidward Tentacles' house. It is located in between SpongeBob's and Patrick's houses, and has been a recurring location since the pilot episode.


While usually a dark blue, Squidward's house appears red at night.

Squidward's house's mouth is the door, but originally, its mouth was closed and a door rested underneath it. The house's exterior styling is reminiscent of a "Moai," giant statues found on Easter Island also referred to as the Easter Island Heads. According to page 36 of the 2004 book SpongeBob Exposed! The Insider's Guide to SpongeBob SquarePants, Squidward's house was built out of volcanic rock.

The ground floor consists of three adjoining rooms; the one at the front being the living room. The living room consists of a bookcase with some of Squidward's jazz records, a couch, a coffee table, and TV. Behind the living room is the kitchen with a fridge, an island counter, and four cabinets. This is where Squidward cooks. The dining room is off to the side and consists of a round table with chairs and a clamshell chandelier. There is a room off to the side with a spiral staircase leading to the second floor. There is also an elevator. Upstairs is a bedroom on the left ear.

In the bedroom is a canopy bed, a nightstand, and a closet with alarm clocks, as seen in "Employee of the Month." Off of the bedroom is a bathroom with a toilet, sink with medicine cabinet, and a Jacuzzi tub/shower. There's also a gallery where Squidward paints his self-portraits and plays the clarinet. Other upstairs rooms include a library and backroom. The architectural style is Polynesian.

In some episodes, it is shown that he has a backyard and at times, raises a garden there.

  • In a Nick Magazine comic strip titled "House of Squidward," there is a switch buried in the backyard that makes Squidward's house come to life. He grows feet and arms. He is brought to rest when SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward cleverly disguise SpongeBob's house as a woman. Using a microphone and a speaker controlled by SpongeBob, they can trick the house into sitting back down behind the walkway and then flip the switch to keep Squidward's house from moving.
  • "There's a Sponge in My Soup" - It screams "Aah! Hippies!" at the end of the episode.
