A stylishly crafted houseboat hand made by the owners creating one of the most unique stays on the south coast. Overlooking Bembridge Harbour, Eleuthera and her sister boat Islay nestle into their surroundings beautifully providing easy access for everything a family or group holiday could wish for and some of the most delightful hidden beaches on the south coast.

Eleuthera can sleep up to 10 and enjoys glorious, ever-changing views across the harbour, perfect for a family getaway to the island.

The space
Only a short walk from Bembridge village and beaches, the entrance leads across a walkway to the front door which opens onto the main open-plan living area. With kitchen/utility, toilet, banquet dining table, and comfortable sitting areas, you'll enjoy spectacular views across the harbour. The sliding folding doors that lead onto the viewing deck flood light into the main room. The ever-changing sea and sky create a constantly changing landscape that can be enjoyed all year round.

Downstairs there are 4 modern bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeping up to 10, perfect for 2 families. The houseboat will rise and fall with the tides so don't worry if there are some creaking boat sounds as the hull rises and settles onto the seabed.

Where you’ll be

Isle of Wight, England, United Kingdom

Houseboat Eleuthera is moored alongside a variety of interesting yachts and fishing boats, you can get your own helping of the morning’s catch at the Crab Shack a few hundred metres away along the harbour. The Best Dressed Crab Restaurant offers fresh seafood lunches and dinners and has a great view of the harbour from its deck as does the Harbour view cafe 1 mins walk away on Bembridge beach.

Bembridge village is well served with two Supermarkets, the Co-Op in the centre of town and towards the other end of the village a fully stocked 'Welcome store' in Lane End Court. If its home made, local and fresh you're looking for then it has it all. Award winning traditional butchers (Best Sausage rolls in the country?!), Artisan bakery, Fishmonger with fresh local catch and a farmstead and whole foods Deli, all within 50m of each other. For the "Big shop" there is a huge Tesco Superstore only 5mins drive away on the route back to Ryde.

Bembridge is never very far from a beach. Whether it’s the Sandy beaches of Priory bay and Seagrove Beach or the rock pooling on Bembridge beach or Forelands beach around the headland. Watch out for the tides there as they are notoriously quick to flood the beach. Also be careful near the cliffs as they are clay and prone to subsidence. The Bembridge lifeboat Station on Lane End beach is a sight to see at dawn, loved by photographers for its beautiful sunrises.

As well as walking and cycling the Isle of Wight's 200 miles of cycle route, you've got some of the best beaches in the UK on your doorstep and there are plenty of ways to enjoy the coast. Try sailing, sea fishing, kite surfing, sea kayaking, horse riding on beaches, rock pooling, sea swimming or surfing.
