The Captains Lookout is a 3 bed property with fantastic sea views, where you can watch the big container ships, yachts, ferries & ocean cruisers pass by. The property has recently been refurbished to create a comfortable and relaxing home, which is well equipped with a large lounge, balcony, kitchen diner, lovely new bathroom & a full sized table tennis table. 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. This mixture of safe, sandy beaches and rocks is great for swimming or spending hours of fun “crabbing” or just exploring the rock pools. First class restaurants & pubs are a 10min walk away. Tesco Extra is 10min drive. Fun days out at places such as Seaview Wildlife Park, Waltzing Waters or Ryde’s boating lake & swimming pool are within 10min drive.

A perfect holiday home
A lovely place. Just right for our family. Very comfortable and relaxing. Well situated for a family holiday.
Lovely relaxing base to explore the Isle of Wight
We very much enjoyed our stay here in this very clean and very comfortable home, much assisted by the unbelievable luck of picking the warmest April week for decades! Despite being situated in a residential area it was extremely peaceful, we barely saw another soul the whole time we were there! Great view of the sea and it's passing ships from the lounge and kitchen window. All the rooms were an excellent size and although there was just the three of us, you could accommodate 6 quite comfortably in my view. There is a handy local shop nearby too which you can walk to in about 10 minutes, never seemed to be closed and had pretty much all the basics that you could wish for during your stay. Some great eateries in the small town centre of Seaview and a very relaxed atmosphere down there. Great communication from the very helpful owner Martin and we hope to go back again sometime soon.
4 day stay 12th-15th Feb
Lovely location, great accommodation, nice view and easy access to beach.
I took my 3 grandchildren over hail term. We had great time, accommodation was just right for them especially the 2 year old.
Would love to go again when weather is a little kinder.
Good communication with owners
Homely holiday stay just minutes walk from the beach
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
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
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!
