The Space

The first thing you notice about Capstone View is the Sea.
The large windows throughout the property make you feel like you are surrounded by it.
The sea is everywhere you go.

The second thing you’ll notice is how big it feels.
It’s spaciously proportioned across two-floors and is as big as most houses.
That means that everyone can enjoy their own space.

Finally, we have tried to furnish Capstone View to the highest standards.
You’ll notice it in everything you do.
We have tried to make everything as nice as possible for your visit.
Every year we try and improve it a little bit more.

All in all, It’s a magical place that you’ll be sad to leave.

Possibly the best view of anywhere I have ever stayed.
A fantastic flat with outstanding views in a great location. A lot more spacious than we expected which was a bonus. Emma’s communications throughout were great. Would 100% recommend.
Beautiful property with stunning views, loads of space upstairs and down. The bedrooms are very well proportioned and would easily sleep 6 adults. It's an ideal space to relax in and explore Ilfracombe and further afield. Emma is a great host and we can't fault her communication, thanks for a lovely stay.
Emma's place is possibly the best Airbnb that I've stayed in, I cannot recommend staying here enough! The view is absolutely breathtaking, I could have spent all day staring out those big windows, listening to the sounds of the sea. The apartment is spacious with 3 big bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a big living room / dining room as well as a big kitchen and a downstairs loo. The living room / dining room is the absolute highlight of the place, you really can't beat those views! Emma was helpful and responded quickly to queries. I really hope we are able to stay at Emma's again.
This flat is in an amazing location. The views are amazing. Emma the Host responded very quickly to any queries.
This is a great place to stay with amazing views and very easy to access the coastal path. Also, if you are "working from a different home" during covid - the wifi is excellent and I had several video calls that worked without a hitch. The flat is the penthouse apartment and there are quite a few stairs and parking isn't at the apartment but a short (less than 5 minutes walk) but it all works well. Lovely place to stay and watch the sea!
This is a stunning location and view! All the items you need and very much home away from home. Would love to have stayed longer.
Great apartment in a central location in Ilfracombe - only 2 mins walk to the harbour! The apartment is spotlessly clean and contains everything you need during a stay. The sea views are what sold it for us and they didn't disappoint - constantly changing throughout the day! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
We had a wonderful trip at Emma’s flat. The view is unparalleled and was such a great sight waking up in the morning! Everything was clean, and the communication was great. Ilfracombe is a nice, quiet seaside town, with beautiful walks on your doorstep. We didn’t find many options for restaurants (most were fully booked in advance due to Covid19) but some nice cafes and shops.
Lovely apartment with fabulous views both over the sea and over Ilfracombe and right in the centre of town, we really enjoyed our stay.
