Location

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.

Coast/Beach:

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.

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.

A very good family let

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not really do it justice - it was well equipped for the basics you need and decked out in a theme which the kids really enjoyed. It is very spacious for the number of berths and there is a large private garden out the back. The views from the front room are better than the telly!

Excellent holiday home in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a fantastic week staying at Captain's Lookout with our 5 year old daughter.

The property is excellent - really clean and very well equipped in a perfect location for families. We loved the sea views from the house as well as the ability to walk down to the beach in minutes.

While it is a great base to visit places on the Island, you also can spend days without using the car and just wander down to the beach and into Seaview.

We would highly recommend Captain's Lookout and will definitely be returning.
