About Kate Broxham
I live in south-west London with my husband Simon, two sons and two dogs and we spend as much time as possible in Seaview.
Kate Broxham purchased this House in 2005
Why Kate Broxham chose Seaview
I spent many happy family holidays in Seaview as a child so, when my husband and I were looking for a holiday home, it seemed a natural choice. The moment I saw the house details, I had a good feeling about it, even though it was rather shabby & unloved at the time - we have made up for it ever since with plenty of TLC! We all adore the place and spend many happy days on the beach, on the water and around the island, with friends, grandparents siblings & cousins. There is something very special about being across the water, yet so accessible. Seaview is truly idyllic for smaller and older children and adults alike, particularly when the good old English weather is kind, but even when the sun is not shining, there is plenty of fun to be had in Seaview and across the Isle of Wight.
What makes this House unique
This is a fantastic location and a really great family holiday house - it is particularly good to be able to accommodate 10 people comfortably, with plenty of space and privacy, just a few steps away from the beach. Pop across with your drink in the early evening and you will see some truly awesome sunsets!

Spacious house and garden in amazing location
We were a group of two families with small children and had the most wonderful week staying here. The house was a great size for all of us and we enjoyed bbqs in the garden on sunny evenings. It was magical to be just over the road to the (wonderfully dog friendly) beach. Lots of sand and rock pools a stroll away. The owner is very friendly and helpful and the house had absolutely everything we needed. Hope to be back!
Highly recommended. Very clean, comfortable home and in an excellent location.
The communication from Kate was absolutely perfect. The house is very clean and I loved the layout.
Having cycled around the island both ways a bath was very welcome and oh my goodness WHAT A BATH!!
Close to sea, pubs, shops... everything ran smoothly and we are all very happy.
Thank you Kate.
Great beachfront house for extended family stays with excellent facilities
We stayed with two other families at this property over Xmas. There were six adults and three older children. We loved the house for the location, facilities and presentation. The house has a good size kitchen with all the equipment you need. The lounge and dining area are large with plenty of seating. The pool table was great for the winter days. The house was warm, and there was a cosy open fire with wood provided. Bedrooms are comfortable, and the bathrooms are good.
We found the host excellent to deal with, and very helpful. The house was good value for the cost.
I would stay here again, and would recommend to others.
Great Beachfront House, Home from Home
A beautiful house with plenty of room for 8 of us plus 2 dogs. The added benefit of a downstairs bedroom and bathroom made things easier for our Mum. Well equipped kitchen with everything you would need as well as a large dining area. The pool table was a definite hit. Fabulous location looking out to sea and just a walk across the road to the beach where we spent most of the weekend. Lovely pub within walking distance. Kate was great to deal with and really helpful. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again one day.
Great location, plenty of space benefitting from a lovely garden and steps to the beach
Two families sharing comfortably, plenty of space and kitchen very well equipped. Lovely bathroom upstairs though we had no time to use the huge bath !). Nice enclosed garden for kids to play in and a bbq for the family to use. Great location, short walk to pubs and lovely coastal walks north or south. Play ground at puck pool park down road too but the beach was sufficient entertainment.
Thanks for your lovely review, Ruth - it's always great to hear that our guests have enjoyed every aspect of their stay at Gullsands! Hope to welcome you there again some time soon. Best, Kate
Lovely beachfront house
Had a very good weekend break. Property was just across a quiet road from the beach. Plenty of parking outside of house. Lots to do see close by.
Thank you so much for your review, Adele - it's lovely to know that you had a great time at Gullsands. Hopefully we'll look forward to seeing you again, if you decide to return. Kate
Beach directly across a small road from the house - a wet sand beach with some rock pools and breakwaters, ideal for building sandcastles, rock-pooling, playing beach games, swimming and launching small boats (public slipway 100 yards away from house)
20 minutes' drive from Wightlink car ferry port at Fishbourne (50mins crossing from Portsmouth). 15 minutes' drive from Ryde Pier Wightlink's foot passenger catamaran terminal (20mins crossing from Portsmouth Harbour - directly connected to trains from London Waterloo). 10 minutes' drive from Hovertravel's hovercraft terminal at Ryde (10mins crossing from Southsea where there is a car park. Also Red Funnel's car ferry terminal (Southampton to Cowes) is about 40mins away.
35 minutes' drive to Cowes, 10 minutes to Bembridge, 10 minutes to Ryde, 25 minutes to Newport, 40 minutes to Tennyson Down & Compton Bay area. Nothing on the island is more than 40 minutes' drive away - masses of attractions and beautiful areas to walk and enjoy.

Large Tesco (10mins' drive) and Waitrose (30mins) both deliver. At Bembridge (10mins) there are excellent individual shops: fishmonger, butcher, greengrocer, baker etc.
