The Lookout at Seaview is a beautiful house, a home from home, large enough for a multi generational family. We have been lucky enough to stay here again this year and hope to return again next year. Situated a short walk from the beach with shops and restaurants close by it is the ideal holiday home for our family.

What a wonderful location and a lovely house, I don't think we could have done better, the upside down took a bit of getting used to, but the photos on the website of the veiw from the balcony don't do it justice, a gentle 30 min stroll along the front to the boathouse even less to the old fort, both do great food
