    “This is a lovely house close to the marina, the castle and the DD Centre on Portland.”

    The house is well furnished with some nice touches and the patio was a good place to sit in the afternoon. The kitchen was well stocked although some storage space for our food would have been welcome. There was parking for 2 cars and an easy drive to Weymouth and a good place from which to explore Portland.

The property

Sea Gem is a three-story, contemporary house in Castletown, Portland, Dorset.

This lovely abode provides private parking, ground-floor living, and an enclosed garden for a family or group of seven to explore a stunning location, with easy access to Chesil Beach, Dorset AONB, and the Jurassic Coast.

The ground floor has a large kitchen/diner where you may cook at home in the fully equipped kitchen, which has a breakfast bar and an extended table for all seven guests to dine together.

A ground-floor bedroom with a small double bed, storage space, and a wall-mounted Smart TV, as well as access to a Jack-and-Jill shower room, is ideal for grandparents or those with limited mobility.

After a long day, relax in the bright and airy first-floor sitting room, which features a plush sofa, Smart TV, Xbox, and a collection of books and games.

Open the French doors to enter the enclosed, private courtyard, where you may dine al fresco, relax on the sun loungers, or play games on the AstroTurf.

Sea Gem also has an outdoor tap with space to hang wetsuits after those busy beach days.

A double bedroom with Smart TV and the family bathroom, a stylish spot to relax with a bubble bath or hot shower, round off the first floor.

Two further bedrooms, a king-size and a double, are located on the second floor, each with Smart TVs and en-suite shower rooms.

Sea Gem is located on a quiet, residential street in Castletown, close to Portland Castle, Osprey Leisure Centre, and Portland Marina, so you can start your vacation exploring the Isle of Portland.

The coast path is just around the corner from the house, and there is direct access to the sea via a jetty close to the castle.

If you want to take a break from cooking, there's Chesil Chippie, The Cove House Inn, and a variety of cafes to choose from, as well as beautiful walks and cycling along the coast and the Rodwell Trail.

Visit Fancys Farm, Tout Quarry sculpture museum, Portland Bill, and Portland Museum, housed in 17th-century stone cottages, for more family-friendly excursions.

The seaside town of Weymouth, with its bustling harbour, has something for everyone, including swimming and sunbathing at Weymouth Beach, SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth, and RSPB Radipole Lake.

Enjoy Chesil Beach and schedule a boat excursion at the Wild Chesil Centre or stay on land and explore the Jurassic Coast and Dorset's countryside.

Dorchester, the county town, is a short drive away and offers lots of history to discover at the National Trust's Max Gate, the former house of Thomas Hardy, as well as a number of museums and the Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens.

Choose Sea Gem for a wonderful break along Dorset's stunning coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
