The nearest beach is the prestigious Seagrove Bay which is just a 4min stroll away. Walking further in either direction are the beaches of Priory Bay & Seaview.

Homely holiday stay just minutes walk from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent location to enjoy the holiday home, beach and coastal walks. There is local bus stop close by so you can have a break from the car and explore the island on bus and foot. For us we would have liked a washing machine instead of a dish washer. Double garage makes fanastic use of a large indoor play area including full size table tennis. Highly recommended.

Lovely Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as we hoped for when booking, a lovely comfortable property with ever changing sea views from the lounge and kitchen. The beds were particularly comfortable, probably the best we have had in many self catering stays.

Parking is no problem and if you want to leave the car it is only a 5 minute walk to the beach at Seagrove Bay and another 10 minutes to the centre of Seaview.

A visit to the Bus Museum in Ryde (free entry) was an unexpected hit on a slightly damp morning.

Martin was very helpful before and after booking, doing everything he said he would without further prompting.

We would have no hesitation in returning again in future.

Fantastic base and a clean, comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's Lookout is very comfortable with amazing sea views and forms an excellent base to explore the island. The wonderful beach is easily accessible being just a five minute walk from the property. Although we live by the sea the beaches are pebbly so having miles of sand (and some interesting shells!) was glorious. We walked - and paddled - to the far side of Seaview along the beach a few times when the tide was out and stopped for lunch at the Old Fort on the way. Lovely! We stayed in Bembridge a couple of years ago and discovered the Crab and Lobster pub and as it was just a few miles away from Seaview we went back there a couple of times for dinner. We were so fortunate to have amazing weather all through the week of our stay which meant we were able to visit all the places we had planned to. The property is not very close to a supermarket (although there is one in Ryde) so we ordered everything we wanted online in advance for delivery just after we arrived. If you are thinking of staying at this property we can highly recommend it as a great place to boat watch from the balcony - so much to see!

A very relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at this property - it was so quiet. Lovely views from the veranda out to the east side of the island, watching the ships go by. All in all very comfortable.

Excellent Property, super location, a real treat.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bungalow in a very quiet location with super sea views, sandy beaches a short stroll away. The modest description is outshined by the reality with every facility provided for a carefree comfortable holiday break.

My wife & I travelled with 85 year old mother-in-law who proclaimed it as "perfect, I can think of no better place" praising (& continues to) the choice. That says it all I think!

Martin was very quick to respond before & after the break, nothing was too much trouble. We intend returning.

We ate at The Boatman & Old Fort, both excellent. Good supermarkets a short drive away. We enjoyed the table tennis in the garage.

Excellent holiday accommodation in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Six of us had a fabulous week staying in ''Captain's Lookout'' (4 adults, 2 small children). Lovely beaches easily reached by foot. We ate at ''The Old Ford'', ''Seaview Hotel'' and ''Seaview Bistro''. All first-class. There is a very good ''Londis'' supermarket 15 minutes walking distance in Netlestone. Martin was very helpful with a couple of pre-visit enquiries. All in all, a very good week.

Special interest holidays:

The Isle of Wight is situated approx 3 miles off the English Southern coastline. Known for its breathtaking scenery, much of the Island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors are attracted each year to its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate– it boasts more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain.

The Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and interests

- Sea lovers will appreciate the proximity to the beach & numerous water sports on offer

- Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the footpaths, cycling routes, plentiful golf courses, fishing and tree climbing

- Fun days out can be had at the award winning theme parks, castles, historical attractions, art galleries and animal parks

- Alternatively just sample the scrumptious island produce from farmers markets and vineyards, or enjoy one of the many carnivals, festivals or sailing regattas throughout the year.


The nearest beach is the prestigious Seagrove Bay which is just a 4 min stroll away. Walking further in either direction are the beaches of Priory Bay and Seaview. This mixture of safe, sandy beaches and rocks is great for swimming or spending hours of fun “crabbing” or just exploring the rock pools.

You are never more than 45 min drive away from anything on the Isle of Wight due to its size.
