Rockport clearly benefits from many good places to stay, but the Captain's House offers something quite special. We were made to feel welcome and at home in the relaxing atmosphere of the spacious house. Its coastal location was equally good for relaxing as well as for an early morning run or an evening walk into Rockport, about 20mins, with access from Marmion Way to quiet roads that weave onto a coastal path offering good views over Rockport.
We stayed four nights and, because of the way our booking worked out, had no problem with staying in three different rooms (Rooms 4, 1 & 2); in fact it was a delight to experience the individuality of decor of each of the rooms.
The owners are very accomplished in providing an immensely satisfying breakfast for their guests, with an excellent choice and high standard of quality, always paying attention to detail conducive to guests relaxing in a homely atmosphere. Certainly the mix of other guests during our stay allowed the opportunity to dip in and out of informal chat and sharing of travel experiences. It would be lovely to return.
