Houseboat on the Isle of Wight: Water, water, everywhere! May we present Vida? Fabulous floating luxury with unbelievable views. All aboard for a holiday with a difference.


Ay ay cap'n - we're going all salty sea dog with this unusual glamping retreat, literally floating in the water of Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight. From a private pontoon (park your car at the nearby slipway) you simply step across to Vida's wraparound timber decking, from which the gorgeous views will take your breath away. Up above is the roof terrace, where you can relax in a deckchair and while away the hours, G and T in hand, watching boats go back and forth across the harbour, or cook up a feast on the barbecue and enjoy a meal in the freshest sea air. Inside, think home-from-home comforts but with sensational waterside sights from all angles. The chic, open-plan living space has curl-up comfy sofas and a spacious dining table that looks onto the decking via floor-to-ceiling glazed doors, while the kitchen at one end boasts all mod cons, including a cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine/drier. Two double bedrooms are light and bright, each with access straight onto the deck, and the modern shower room has (of course) hot and cold running water and a proper flushing loo. Underfloor heating throughout will keep you cosy whatever the weather. It's time to get down to the waterfront. Anchors aweigh!

Out and About

Right next to the yacht club, Vida is moored on the south side of Bembridge Harbour, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and close to the bird lovers' paradise of Brading Marshes. Of course, there's always something interesting to watch going on in the harbour itself, while Bembridge village, with its baker, butcher, fishmongers, farm shop, restaurants and pubs (and historic windmill), is only a stroll away. An invigorating walk across the causeway takes you to St Helens beach and the popular Baywatch café: another chance to sit and watch the world go by. Feeling more active? Then you can have a go at pretty much anything you like, from fishing to windsurfing, kayaking to cycling. All in all, a unique holiday in a unique destination, whether you're in, on or beside the water.

Important Information

Please be aware that, due to Vida's unique location in a tidal estuary, it is often on the move and not always completely level. The steep exterior wooden steps to the roof terrace are not suitable for young children and children are to be accompanied at all times, as the terrace is only partially railed. Use of the roof terrace is at guests' own risk.
