  • "A lovely, clean, well maintained and welcoming apartment with the most stunning views (I spent hours just sitting out on the balcony looking out at the view)."

    Four adults in our party and we didn't have transport ....prior to arriving I wasn't sure how we were going to cope but once we were there we had no problems whatsoever. We took full advantage of a weekly group save ticket of £55 (for up to 5 people) and we travelled the whole of the Dorset coast . We had a brilliant holiday. Portland itself is steeped in history and the views are spectacular. The welcome pack we found on arrival had loads of info on the surrounding area. What can I say more except it's a lovely lovely apartment. The group consisted of four very tired and stressed older nurses in need of some respite after Avery hectic few years...we came away so relaxed it's back to the wards we go. Thankyou Daphne and Matthew and dream Cottages for the best holiday

    So glad you enjoyed your holiday. What a good tip about the bus. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The corridors could do with a refresh, carpets and painting."

    More importantly though is the fact that the directions don't appear to be correct. Fortunately I had looked at Google Earth before I set off.

    Will check with Dream Cottages ref directions. Unfortunately the decor in the corridors is down to Comer Property. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was ideal for us very spacious, clean and well equipped with everything we needed."

    The weather was perfect . On arrival the en suite bathroom toilet was not working and were informed would be fixed but on leaving after a week was still not fixed ! We were given £100 to compensate but found it inconvenient to have to use buckets of water for a week to flush the loo.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. I will chase the repair of the toilet as I was told it was being done. Daphne I am pleased to say this has now been fixed. Daphne Property Owner

  • "The apartment is in an amazing location, not too far into Portland, so very easy access to Weymouth as well as the whole Isle of Portland."

    The view from the balcony always gave us something to look at, and there are stunning views, and incredible sunsets. Unfortunately, the sofa was a little uncomfortable and one of the toilet flushers broke. Other than that the apartment is well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is so much to see and do in the area that suited the whole family. We had a fantastic week, and I thoroughly recommend. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback and pleased you had a good time. The toilet is being repaired as we speak and hopefully it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. Daphne Property Owner

  • "Hi -- the flat is well situated overlooking the harbour."

    And convenient for a number of site seeing activities and the coastal path. Great to be able to have breakfast and dinner on the balcony. The kitchen has everything you need and both bedrooms and bathrooms were great. Only additional comment -- need to include mention of the parking voucher in the joining instructions and ensure the blue folder with the instructions & voucher are left out for people to find. Would definitely go back again!

    Thank you for your feedback-will ask Dream Cottages to make sure the parking ticket and blue file are left out clear to see. Daphne Property Owner

The property

Located on the outskirts of Castletown, Portland is Bear's Apartment, a fabulous fourth-floor apartment.

Enjoying direct sea views and a prime location near a host of amenities, the beach, and the marina, Bear's Apartment is complete with a contemporary interior, a private balcony, and designated parking, offering the ideal base for a seascape.

Park up in the designated parking space and make your way up to the fourth floor before entering the light-flooded living space, where you can prepare meals in the sleek kitchen, dine in as a four, and unwind upon the chic corner sofa, with coastal vistas in sight.

Head outdoors to truly make the most of your surroundings, enjoying an alfresco affair upon the balcony, before unwinding for the night with a glass of wine in hand.

When sleep calls, select between two well-appointed bedrooms including a double with balcony access, and a twin with an en-suite shower room.

The apartment is complete with a sleek bathroom, home to both a bath and a shower.

Awaken to tour the marina, stock up on the essentials, or grab a bite to eat at The Kitchen at Portland Marina, a popular, local restaurant.

Continue by foot to enjoy the shoreline of Chesil Beach, covering an 18-mile stretch, also a haven for water sports and wildlife spotting, or if you'd prefer a day of amusements, visit Weymouth and its shoreline of attractions, including Weymouth Museum, Alexandra Gardens amusement park, Nothe Fort, RSPB Radipole Lake, and SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth.

Travel through Dorset AONB, to reach Dorchester, the centre of the county, also home to further attractions, where you can brush up on your local knowledge at the Dorset Museum, or discover the Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens, before returning home for sundowners.

Experience all of this, and more, at Bear's Apartment.
