    “All instructions to obtain keys for apartment spot on, but it would have been helpful to know there was an extra gizmo attached to open barrier and main entrance door.”

    Also took quite a while to find parking space. Had to ask the office but even they got the parking space wrong and had to wander around two different areas to find the number. Owner needs to read the visitors book about wash basins too.

The property

This well-presented, first-floor apartment sits in a contemporary build overlooking the Portland Marina in Castletown, on the Isle of Portland.

Benefitting from a prime location near a host of amenities, 65 Ocean View is an ideal place to call home for a family seeking a coastal escape to Dorset.

Park up in the designated parking space and make your way up to the first floor before entering the open-plan living area, where you can prepare light lunches in the kitchen, dine as a four and relax on the settee and armchair each evening.

Slide the patio doors to access the balcony, stretching across the entire length of the apartment, with a furniture set at one end.

Choose between two well-presented bedrooms to catch your rest, including a double with TV and en-suite shower and a twin with access to a shower room.

Within a moment’s stroll there are a handful of amenities, including several shops, pubs, cafes and superb restaurants, including The Blue Fish Café & Restaurant, Quiddles Café and Balti Island, ideal for when you fancy a night away from cooking.

Wander over to the marina and watch the boats bob with the tide, learn about local history with a visit to Portland Musuem or head the beautiful Chesil Beach, a haven for wildlife and a popular spot for leisurely walks and fishing.

Head north to the seaside town of Weymouth and uncover its bustling shoreline of attractions, famed for its golden sands and clear waters that make it an ideal spot for sunbathing and swimming, plus its historic harbour and quayside hub of activity is sure to offer something for everyone.

Further beauty can be explored along the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasting stunning cliffs, dramatic rock formations, and fossil-rich beaches.

Book 65 Ocean View and look forward to exploring this delightful destination.
