  • "Shower tray needs renewing, I cleaned head to get it to work properly, light bulb gone in there, did leave a note."

    On looking at the property you would think it was derelict as fenced off at front, the door to go in glass shattered. Scaffolding up in hallway and up the stairs, no one working on it. However we did enjoy our stay and views, would go again.

    Thank you for your feedback we have fixed the shower head and an electrician has replaced the bathroom light unfortunately there was a fire in the communal lobby so the entrance area was cordoned off for safety reasons but has been completely resolved and looks entirely different now i do hope you will return without this inconvenience which of course was out of my control and im glad once inside you were able to enjoy the fabulous views uninterrupted Property Owner

  • "The window blind didn't function properly as was fitted incorrectly and has a fault with the fitting at the rail for three of the panels such that when you close the blind to keep the sun out the blind doesn't rotate properly."

    The walls are paper thin and the adjoining properties occupents can be heard easily and this goes on til late hours/early morning. There was no mention that people staying need to bring a sharp kitchen knife as one is not provided. There is no specified 'designated parking' for the individual property as stated is ambiguous at best as to where you can park (we had to ask a permanent resident).that in front is pot luck as to whether you can get a space, otherwise there is parking 100metres walk to the entrance from the other parking available (the sign states Buses only though!) At the least a simple map of the front of the main building to show where you can park would help people in the future. A smashed window of the front door on the main entrance to the building and internally looking like a building site was somewhat detracting.

    Thank you for the feedback. Sadly a guest forced the relatively new blind clearly not understanding how it worked but this has now been replaced. I do apologise if you didn't receive the parking instructions before arrival. I have now ensured each future guest will always be emailed these. Bags can be dropped to the door and there are at least 5 spaces directly outside the entrance to the flat for guest/owner use, if these are occupied then the huge car park is only about 20m away and parking is complementary at all times anywhere within it and there is always plenty of space for more than one car if required. I have bought an additional sharp knife I can only imagine a guest popped it in their picnic bag by mistake. The communal window and works which were damaged during an unfortunate fire in the communal area have now all thankfully been fixed. I hope you can return in the future without these concerns.

  • "I found the appartment exactly as described on the Sykes website."

    I didn't expect to be able to cook very much so I came prepared with easy meals. I loved being able to walk straight from the front door and the views were amazing! I was disappointed that the hotel next door wasn't always open for evening meals but I did enjoy their Sunday carvery, however. The breakfast at the Lobster Pot was very good too. Overall, I thought it was very good value for money.

    Thank you marion for your kind feedback i have since purchased a table top electric hob and some pans to extend the options for dining in so along with the convectional microwave, toaster and sandwich tosster there are a fair few options for self catering as well as the number of local eateries available so i hope this will now help future guests thanks again Property Owner

  • "Amazing views, great walks."

    I'm a huge lifelong fan of Portland Bill and knew the area well. Maritime House is just back from 'The Bill' (tip of the island), up a small hill. You can walk to the Bill or Church Ope Cove, or the coastal path easily from here. The view is just incredible, full stretch of the water with lighthouses visible when it's not foggy! The accommodation was perfect for me and my 6 year old. Sofa bed is the most comfy I've ever seen (a real mattress) and the main bed is also comfortable. Shower room is nice, smart TV, WiFi works well. It's clean and tidy. The only thing I'd say is to be aware that it's pretty tricky to cook. I did use the microwave (might have tried using it as a combi oven if we'd been there longer) but it's not geared up for cooking. And also: the fantastic view does mean huge windows which let in the glorious sun so it was hot hot hot. I anticipated this and brought a fan. I suggest you do in July or August etc, although you may not need it. Owner was contactable and really helpful. Hairdryer provided, by the way! Overall, really recommended, we had a great time.

    Thank you for your kind words and hope you return again Property Owner

The property

Positioned on the Isle of Portland in Dorset is this delightful, second-floor apartment, Lighthouse View.

Enjoying splendid sea views, overlooking Portland Bill, above the Atlantic Academy overlooking their playground, this compact, studio-style apartment is an ideal base for a couple looking for a getaway with lots of coastal trails to explore.

Park up in the allocated parking space before boarding the lift to the second floor and discovering the open-plan living space, with bright walls and a large window to soak in the views.

Rustle up tasty meals in the compact kitchen area, courtesy of the combi microwave/oven, and dine together at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine in hand.

Relax and unwind on the plush sofa, which converts into a single bed for flexible sleeping, and flick through the TV for a film night in.

After a day exploring the rugged coastline, rinse off in the shower room before climbing into your pyjamas ready for bed.

When sleep calls, a double bed awaits, with lights above for some night-time reading, or let the TV do the entertaining for you.

Explore your fantastic location, with a walk along the coast at Portland Bill, home to a working lighthouse, enjoy pony-trekking on an open-field or pack a picnic for a visit to Easton Gardens.

If you fancy a break from cooking, a stylish restaurant rests just a short stroll away, where you can savour spectacular sea views over a home-cooked meal, and afterwards, unwind on Little Beach or explore the 16th century Portland Castle.

For a Blue Flag beach and bustling attractions, venture to the seaside town of Weymouth, hosting thrilling rides at Fantasy Island, SEA LIFE to get up close to marine creatures and the Tudor House Museum for a trip back in time.

History buffs may wish to visit the county town of Dorchester, for five museums, including the unique Tutankhamun Exhibition, or if that’s not your taste, the Jurassic coastline and wonderful countryside is within easy reach, ideal for the adventures at heart.

For a coastal getaway, whisk your other half to Lighthouse View.

About the location


Easton 3 miles; Fortuneswell 4 miles; Weymouth 9 miles.

Portland Bill is a narrow promontory on the end of the rugged Isle of Portland peninsula which is joined to the mainland via Chesil Beach, a pebble spit, which stretches 18 miles towards West Bay. Situated on Dorset's spectacular Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage Site, Portland Bill is home to three lighthouses, the most recent built in 1906 being the 35 meter tall, white and red striped Portland Bill Lighthouse. Portland Bill is home to a pub and a restaurant/café as well as the Portland Bird Observatory. Formerly a quarrying area, the stunning coastal scenery and footpaths provide excellent walking and the surrounding countryside is well known as a birdwatcher’s paradise! The local communities of Fortuneswell and Easton boast a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. With great climbing opportunities and an array of watersports activities on offer locally, plus the wonderful sandy beaches and the pretty harbour at Weymouth just 9 miles away, this super holiday destination is not to be missed!
