    “Captains Retreat is a lovely apartment, with a view over the beach.”

    The rooms are spacious, and very comfortable, although the shower/toilet is a little cramped. The standard of cleanliness, and the quality of all of the decor, fittings and furniture is first class, Absolutely everything that you could want or need during your stay is provided, and having a few basics provided in the fridge and kitchen are very welcome.This was my second visit…….and I would definitely come back again!

The property

Captain's Retreat is a stylish second floor apartment on the seafront, with outstanding front line sea views in the middle of Weymouth's Royal Esplanade.

Set in the award winning resort in Dorset and the Sunday Times & Times No1 beach in the UK 2023, Captain's Retreat is conveniently located near the most popular attractions and amenities and offers an open-plan layout and contemporary fixtures, making it an ideal base for a couple looking for a fun-filled break.

After parking in the nearby public car park, ascend to the second-floor, where your private entrance is located.

The open-plan living area, which boasts far reaching sea views with 180 degree aspect of beautiful Weymouth Bay, will act as your social centre where you can dine as a couple, have a romantic night in, in front of the TV, and simply enjoy your self-catering stay; an exposed brick feature wall, a selection of state-of-the-art appliances, and coastal colours will greet you into this deluxe room.

As the evening progresses, retire to the light and large super king-size bedroom, which is ideal for relaxing and recharging before embarking on another day of adventure.

Captain's Retreat is finished off with a contemporary shower room, with a walk-in shower and marble effect tiling, perfect for a morning refresh before venturing out to Weymouth town centre.

Beyond the property, there are a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, and activities to enjoy and take advantage of, with popular selections including Sea Beats, Rockfish Weymouth, and Olivento.

Weymouth Beach, SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth, and Escape Dungeons are all within walking distance, whether you prefer a sunny stroll or an immersing adventure.

Portland Castle, Dorset Museum, and Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens are all close by, giving you the chance to learn about the county's history or interact with some of the local species.

If you enjoy the water, a paddle in Bowleaze Cove is a must, as are tours onboard the Jurassic JetSki and fishing outings with Supanova Charters.

The coast and the cliffs around Charmouth and Lyme Regis can be reached in under an hour's drive and are famous for their fossils across the world, and the walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door, around a 30 minute drive, is one of the most popular coastal walks in Dorset, connecting two of the biggest stars of the Jurassic Coast, and taking you along the clifftops and back through rolling countryside and pretty villages.

Choose Captain's Retreat to enjoy the shoreline of Dorset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
