    “We loved our week at The View, thank you.”

    Everything was straight forward. A confirmed booking from the start. Automatic deposit and final payment system. Communication excellent. The house was exactly as expected. Two roomy twins downstairs for all the teenagers, with their own bathroom. A cute courtyard garden out back for scooters/sailing gear etc. A very handy utility room. Could maybe do with an inside rail for hanging things indoors such as wetsuits, lifejackets etc that need to be on hangers not a clothes horse. Love the no ...

    Everything was straight forward. A confirmed booking from the start. Automatic deposit and final payment system. Communication excellent. The house was exactly as expected. Two roomy twins downstairs for all the teenagers, with their own bathroom. A cute courtyard garden out back for scooters/sailing gear etc. A very handy utility room. Could maybe do with an inside rail for hanging things indoors such as wetsuits, lifejackets etc that need to be on hangers not a clothes horse. Love the no shoes policy. Found the freezer hidden in the cupboard, which was handy. Lounge and view as beautiful as the photos. Didnt watch TV much as we all just sat staring out of the window whenever inside. Binoculars a nice touch. Whilst the kitchen was really well equipped, I found the saucepans just one size too small for 6.There was only a sieve, not a strainer. And only 5 chairs. But that was the only thing I felt could be improved on for us personally as we were at full capacity for a week long sailing event. The View garden was really lovely. Wish we'd had more time to sit an watch the sunsets.Location is excellent for WPNSA. One thing worth mentioning, is the access to the house. We knew it would be narrow. We were in 3 cars through the week (2 family tag team supporting the kids sailing), a discovery, which barely fit in the circle to park, same with the Tiguan. There was no way you could park a second car across the front. Infact, as we pulled out of the lane, our Tiguan was at such an angle, it would slam the automatic parking brakes on every time we left the lane. The third car was an Audi S5 with a low front bumper, which would in no way cope with the angle where the lane meets the main road going in or out, so we we had to leave it parked elsewhere all week. So this wasnt a huge issue for us , just a niggle we got used to as we had other vehicles we could ferry all the kit up with. But worth mentioning I thought. We would definatly stay again and have recommended the house and Sykes many times already as we know people who had cancelled accomodation bookings booked through other internet rental companies, that had been booked months in advance.

The property

As the name of the property suggests, The View is amazing property boasting fantastic scenery along Chesil beach towards Lyme Bay and dramatic West cliffs of the Isle of Portland. The View can accommodate up to six guests in three bedrooms, two of which are located on the ground floor, with the third on the second floor, which is perfect for a group of friends. Along with this spectacular location the property has the benefit of a light modern interior with a wonderful stain glass window showing one of the most popular locations in Portland – the Portland Bill lighthouse. Living area is comfortable for relaxing and just enjoying the views or having a nice dinner altogether.

There is a mix of furniture with sofas and armchairs all with cushions for your convenience. Enjoy a drink in the patio area whilst sinking in the views and planning adventures for the next day. The View is in an elevated position just a short stroll from Chesil beach and promenade, which is part of the coastal path around Portland, perfect for walkers and birdwatchers.

Chesil beach stretches along the Jurassic Coast, where you can enjoy exciting beach activities like kite surfing, as well as scuba diving and angling.

National Sailing Academy is nearby to occupy yourself for a day. Whatever the weather, be it winter storms or tranquil summer days the views over the Chesil beach are glorious with waves crashing to the shore, a walk on the Chesil bank is highly recommended.

Quiddles café is one of the island’s favourites with fresh seafood menu.

Just a short stroll away are a variety of places to eat and local shops are readily located nearby.
