Splendid holiday-home, ready-made investment property. The rental listing details can be seen “live” on the HomeAway website (click hereXXX). Or you could utilise this as a European bolt-home. Even a European business address for your UK company (post-Brexit). Or a combination of all three!

It is fairly rare that we feature houseboats in the Unique Property Bulletin. The last one was in London and had the advantage of securing affordable accommodation in the capital in a spectacular location.

Our latest offering is even rarer to the Unique Property Bulletin. A European location. It may seem counter-intuitive in these Brexit times, but Unique Property Bulletin can guarantee you that the Channel Tunnel will still work, and the car ferries will still cross the English Channel. We are fairly certain that folk from the UK will still wish to holiday, visit, live and work in Europe.

For us, based at the far north of Britain, the allure of Europe is increasing. The thought of a waterfront property that is so close to Amsterdam, yet sits on the water has us excited.

Maybe have a look yourself.

Summary of Accommodation:

The houseboat has accommodation for 2 people:-

· 1 Bedroom.

· 1 Bathroom

· Free street parking right outside

· Outside Patio Area

· Easy-maintenance garden area (rented from council)

The houseboat is located on a wide section of the Edam estuary, close to the Ijsselmeer lake and a few minutes’ walk to the ‘living museum’ that is historic Edam. This location is just 30 minutes’ drive from Amsterdam. You will often see historic wooden barges, pleasure craft and all sorts of small boats and water activities passing close to your window! Also, the ducks, grebes, moor-hens and coots that frequent this location, often passing right under your window or nesting in the nearby reeds. Indeed, this is also a nature-lover’s paradise.

Got a boat? Moor it right alongside, and use it to explore the beautiful ancient canal-ways of the Noord-Holland countryside, or go sailing on the Ijsselmeer ‘lake’ that once formed part of the north sea.

The boat is currently furnished as a holiday rental and decorated with a collection of artwork (some by the owner).

Wonderful houseboat, great location, charming little town

Laura L.

At the end of May we spent a long weekend on the houseboat in Edam. On the way back home it was clear, we will be back! This time for a week in July. The houseboat is lovingly furnished, everywhere there is something to discover and equipped with everything you need. The location is perfect, you are fast in the historic center of Edam and just as fast on the sea. Edam itself is a wonderful little town and absolutely worth a visit. There is everything you would want as a tourist, and the place is still not overcrowded touristy. If you want to relax here is just right. The gentle rocking of the houseboat with passing boats and ships is very calming. Every day, the duck family greets you, who greets you aloud at the window or on your own jetty. We even looked forward to the rainy days, because watching the raindrops on the water is wonderful. If you need a bit more action, it’s half an hour by bus in Amsterdam. All in all a perfect holiday with a very friendly and attentive hostess. We will definitely come back!
