We had our best holiday for years as we always have bad weather. This was sunshine all the time our accommodation was just perfect and great location too
This accommodation is of a high standard. The owners are lovely and have gone the extra mile to add some nice little touches to make the property feel homely, welcoming and very comfortable.They have thought of everything to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Including a plate of freshly baked chocolate muffins, waiting for you on arrival. The property is situated on the owners farm, it is peaceful and has spectacular views across the countryside. It is perfectly situated for walkers and there is a handy folder in the bungalow with many walks highlighted. Everything on the ...more
Great location in st Helens village,next to the shop/post office/coffee shop.Easy access to local beach or travel to Ryde ,Sandown no problem. The cottage is very comfortable,all mod cons that you need,and easily sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms.Comfy beds and plenty of fresh clean towels.The locals are very friendly and helpful,good local pub and restaurants.Ive been coming to the island for the last 20 years and this is one of the best accommodation we have stayed in. I would recommend Clara cottage to anyone wanting comfortable accommodation with off street parking and a great touring base
We returned to Chine House Apartment after a 4 or 5 year gap and we have to say it did not disappoint. The extra little touches that the owners provide to welcome you are a real treat. The accommodation is an absolute delight to stay in with a really comfortable bed that you don't want to get out of. This place provides all the comforts of home in an ideal location that is both quiet and perfectly situated for all that the local area has to offer.
Had a great time at this wonderful cottage. Very close to everything but lovely and peaceful surroundings in the evening, especially loved the wood burner. Had everything we needed, and our dog Jess loved it too! Thank you for a great place to stay, would definitely go again.
A spacious, well equipped and clean home from home a short walk from the centre of Ventnor. A great place to stay.
We 1st enjoyed a week at The Hideaway 2 years ago. So as soon as this year's holiday was booked, we were counting down the days till we could once more enjoy the peace & quiet of this unique holiday apartment. We weren't disappointed! The Hideaway is located centrally and provided an ideal base for our many visits around the isle. The apartment is equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable holiday, including a tasty 'welcome' treat. We were greeted on arrival by our friendly host Kathy, shown around the apartment and given all the information needed for our stay. After that we ...more
The cottage was great, spacious, well furnished and dog friendly. Parking tight at the back but ok. Loved the house would stay again
Little Grosvenor is a spacious, stylish and very comfortable apartment in a prime location and within 10 minutes walk of the beach. A warm welcome from Claire on arrival, local grocery provisions, top quality furnishings, appliances and fittings in every room made for a relaxing and happy holiday experience. The outside space was delightful and the apartment is situated in a quiet, yet convenient, area of town. With an abundance of cafes and local shops within Ventnor, and a frequently served bus stop just 3 minutes walk from the apartment, the use of a car is not essential. Little Gro...more
We returned for another visit to this lovely house at the Marina - wonderful! We traveled with 3 generations so the size of the house and the number of bathrooms was essential and once again, we were taken by the beautiful house and the comfy set up. Sitting on the veranda in the evening with a glass of wine and watch the sun set is absolute bliss! Thanks for the bubbly - nice touch again! We will return
We had a very comfortable stay. The Stables is well equipped with a nice outdoor area. Picturesque location near the yacht/boat haven. Close to visitor attractions of Robin Hill Country Park and Monkey Haven which were nice places to visit. Big supermarket within 12 minutes drive. Great access for sandy beaches. Well recommended.
Stayed for a week in this cosy cottage. The owners had thought of everything in regards to equipment and home comforts. Including a lovely cream tea on arrival. The cottage was tastefully and comfortably furnished. As we were out of season the area was very quiet but well lit at night although a torch is handy to go up the pathway at night. Parking on the street was not an issue but watch out for the hawthorn tree which was shedding berries and I came out one morning to find my car covered. Easy downhill access to the seafront at Bonchurch but a bit of a climb back up! Short walk into Ventnor...more
The house was clean. It had toys, and entertainment items which was great for the kids. The kitchen was very well equipped. The hosts left us a lovely postcard and bottle of wine to welcome us which was very thoughtful. Ideal location for the beach and exploring. Could not fault it.
The apartment is new and modern and very well furnished. The kitchen has the latest equipment such as a combination oven and microwave. The living area has a very comfortable 3 seat sofa with a view that is as good as you can get. The bedroom has a king size bed with quality bedding and towels. The bathroom has a basin and shower as is a wet room. There are no downsides to the property provided you consider that it is on the 3rd floor and access is by stairs.
Great bungalow in a quiet location but not too far from all amenities. Lovely owners. V accommodating. Friendly and helpful. On hand if needed but not obtrusive. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage.
We had a great time in Ventnor at the Overlook. The view is amazing and it was a lovely property all round.
Gullsway is a delightful contemporary holiday home. The standard of accommodation is excellent. The kitchen, dining and sitting area are all together in one fabulous light open plan room with a stunning view. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the family bathroom and en-suite all very good. The location is perfect, very near to the Botanical Gardens and also Steep Hill Cove which is beautiful. Lots of lovely cliff top walks. It is a hilly area so a car is advisable. We would love to return to the property.
We thought the Squeak was beautifully fitted out and very comfortable, we enjoyed a peaceful quiet stay.
Light and airy apartment in quiet surroundings on the outskirts of Ryde. Accommodation was spacious and immaculately clean, beds very comfortable. Small kitchen area but containing everything we needed. Great welcome pack including red wine!
Central to everything on the island and on the edge of the grounds of Arreton Barns, Lavender Cottage has everything you could possibly need, The large garden was perfect as we took our spaniel. There are stunning walks right on the doorstep. It was great for us with the dog as The Dairymans Daughter pub is dog friendly (as is almost anywhere on the island). The cottage can sleep five which would be fine in good weather when you are out and about most of the day but a little tight if you plan on spending a lot of time inside (but why would you with so much to do on your doorstep?). We love...more
The apartment had everything we needed and the views from the decking were wonderful.The gardens were lovely and we saw plenty of wildlife.
We could not have asked for a better fortnight’s holiday. The location and superb weather helped, but I’m struggling to think of anything different that I would have wanted in the Hayloft. There isn’t a washing machine in the house, but there is a communal washing machine a few yards from the front door, and we didn’t go on holiday to do washing. We’ll most definitely be going back.
The Cottage is in an ideal position in Ryde. It is close to everything but very peaceful. It is well equipped and very clean. The only thing it lacked was a pair of curtains or a black out blind in the twin bedroom, as it was very light in the morning, waking you up really early.
We spent a week at Mole Cottage as a group of 4 adults and found the accommodation to be very comfortable and clean with all the appliances that you could need (washing machine, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer etc.) and in a great location with a fantastic view over the Channel. A gentle 20-minute stroll down to Shanklin Old Village with shops, pubs and eateries although it's quite a decent climb back up to the cottage afterwards. Equally we walked the Coastal Path from the cottage to Ventnor, about 3 1/2 miles, approximately 75 minutes, via the very interesting 11th Century St ...more
We arrived after a rainy journey down the M3 to be greeted by Ian. Pam and the two dogs Schummi and Rossa settled nicely in to make the tea while I unloaded the bags. Although raining on and off most days we had a wonderful restful week in the IOW always returning after days out to our warm and cosy Apartment. Great hot showers and kitchen excellent for either cooking or serving take aways and very comfortable bed. We will certainly be returning very soon for some hopefully drier weather !! but as I aways say " It Never Rains In Pubs "
We had a great holiday at Meadow View and we much appreciated the flexibility shown by the hosts in allowing us early access. Its situation on the outskirts of Newport means nowhere on the island is more than 15 miles away and can be driven to in half an hour or less. A car makes life easy and parking outside is easy. For the fit the town centre and the supermarkets are walkable distance, as are buses. As pensioners, we opted for the ground floor apartment to make life easier for us, though the outside view is quite restricted - you can see a distant meadow though! Meadow View was very cl...more
Solent view is a great place to stay we loved our week at solent view the place was spotless the beds are comfortable very roomy inside its a very quiet location we will be booking again for next year
This cottage with it's unbelievable view, at the waters edge. Spend evenings enjoying one of the two balconys. With a glass of wine and a good book, or simply watch the sailing. Anchor cottage has a well equipped kitchen. Nice to have both Dish washer as well as a washing machine. Beds are sooo comforortable. RECOMEND this holiday home.
A very enjoyable week at the Old Barn. Our toddler grandson and daughter and son in law had the upstairs bedrooms which worked out well and my husband and myself and son had the downstairs. Had not been to IOW for 11 years and did not want to leave!! Will definitely return hopefully next year. The Barn had good facilities but ate out most of the time so only used basic equipment. James coming up for 3 liked the ducks and chickens. Clothes airer supplied but would have been good to have a rotary line as sometimes bit windy to put airer out. This only something minor.
Well equipped house in quiet but convenient location. Close to town, beaches, attractions and public transport links.
In summary, Beechwood is well situated in Ryde, just on the edge so you get a very peaceful experience. The cottage and grounds are lovely, everything you need is included in this modern and well kept property. It was perfect for five of us with two dogs, with a big enclosed garden and some great short walks from the property to stretch the dogs (and our) legs.
Very conveniently located for public transport, the beach and the shops. Furnished in retro style. Nice big rooms. We did have trouble locating the key safe on arrival, but fortunately we had a torch to help. Very helpful service from Island Holiday Homes.
Quiet location. Lovely views over Sandown Bay which can be seen from kitchen window and balcony. Warm well equipped apartment. Comfortable beds. Great place for walkers, the coastal path is just in front of apartment building. Easy reach of Shanklin beach although there are quite a few steps leading down. We stayed from 23rd March to 30th March 2019 and had lovely weather all week, sunshine everyday. We really enjoyed out stay.
We were so impressed with Suncliff - one of the most comfortable and spacious holiday properties we've stayed in. Beds and seating were extremely comfortable, with outstanding sea views. The kitchen is well equipped with high grade appliances - a pleasure to cook there. Spacious bathrooms with good strong showers. Also lots of books, games and toys for children. Outside a lovely garden full of interesting plants and a good supply of herbs! Further afield we found some good eating places and quirky shops in Ventnor, and lots to do within an easy drive. We went for a week's R&R and came aw...more
Lovely stay in a great place, situated within a stones throw of the beach. Good modern flat, clean and welcoming. Don’t go to ventnor if you have problems with hills and steps, as it’s full of them, but otherwise it is a little gem . Will be returning next year, still so much we haven’t seen.
Trelawney is just lovely! The cottage is well-equipped and cosy and the location is wonderful - an easy stroll into Ventnor and, of course, the most beautiful sea views! All in all it was a great holiday :-)
This was our third visit - 6 adults, 4 children aged from 10 years to 3 months. Great configuration for family time downstairs and an excellent garden for young children. The location means that you can walk to local supermarket, to the village where there is a very good butcher, Woodfords, good places to have coffee or meals and very good bakery. Also a fish shop and a farm shop. In the other direction you can walk to the beach and the lifeboat station. There is a good bus service at the end of the road. The No. 8 accepts OAP passes. The tourist buses don’t.
I've reviewed this cottage on the great number of times we've been before and my views are unchanged!
A decent size property in a great location let down by a few things. Many of these have already been highlighted by previous tenants in the visitors book, some over a year ago. Double bed too small & uncomfortable, lack of long mirrors, insufficient towel rails, insufficient hangers, no coat hooks in the entrance hall, various lights not working, supplied torches need batteries
Beach side was in an excellent location, room layout very well thought out. Furnishing brilliant. Excellent panoramic view when the curtains were drawn back.Slight issue with plumbing under sink. We didn't want to leave.
The Lodge exactly meets the advance information about it. Clean, tidy and all inside is of very good quality. No problems encountered at all.
We have just had a wonderful week’s break at Seafront. It is in a good location and being on the second floor of the building, has spectacular views across the Solent, where you can watch the huge liners and other shipping coming in and out from Southampton. The flat had everything we needed and a problem with the internet was resolved the same day.
Really nice place would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a quiet place to stay on the Isle of Wight.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Long Ledge. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The refurbished bathrooms have been done to a high standard. Although we only had one car there is plenty of off road parking for more vehicles.
Stayed at Highlands for 5 nights in October. Apartment is finished to a really high standard. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and has all things you need for your stay. Very spacious kitchen with table to seat 4 .Lounge was comfortable with freeview TV. Has a double bedroom with ensuite shower and other bedroom has 2 single beds. Both have wardrobes. Beds were comfortable my only criticism would be pillows that are provided are very thin we had to go out and buy some extra ones but that maybe personal choice. Highlands has allocated parking for each apartment. Highlands 3 is a lovely place ...more
Definietely a perfect location, when you don't have a car. Everything is in walking distance. Lovely sea view. Had a perfect stay. Thank you.
The Cottage is very well located it is well equipped and like home from home my only criticism is I think it could do with a coffee table in the lounge as there is no where to put a drink of an evening
Lovely apartment, been here 2 years running, loved watching the ships in the solent from the balcony with a glass or two of wine, (Or from the sofa, if the weather was a bit rubbish!) Strongly recommend a visit! Cannot think of any bad points!!!
A perfect hideaway for the Isle of Wight. Perfect location and views. Having your own jetty and beach hut to go fishing/crabbing was magical for the family. So dog friendly with enclosed garden. Would stay again. Have to provide own baby cot and high chair but was not a problem for us.
From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the cottage. Well kept and extremely well equipped. The cottage was very clean with all beds made up ready. The only thing it doesn’t have is wi-do, if this was added it would be perfect. Have recommended to friends and would stay there again
The brewhouse was a lovely place to stay. However, we were staying with young children and the house contained many fragile ornaments. It was a steep downhill walk to the seaside but the kids really enjoyed the beach.
Having not been to the Isle of Wight for at least 30 years, we initially chose The Grain Store as it was fairly centrally located. The barn was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely enclosed garden which leads onto a footpath into Godshill with fantastic views. The property is on the red squirrel trail and there are lots of footpaths right from the door. Lovely pond also with ducks and chickens. We would definitely stay here again.
It's a lovely house, well equipped and in a convenient location, sadly however our stay was marred by a few issues. The master bedroom bedding had not been changed on our arrival leaving a visible discolouration to the pillows and sheets from the previous occupants, unfortunately, we failed to spot this until late evening when we headed to bed. Discovering the "out of hours" support number is only available for just a few hours on Friday and Saturday evenings we had little choice to spend a quite disgusting night using dirty bedding and the first day of our holiday washing and drying it our...more
We had a very happy stay at Daisy cottage. It’s the best equipped holiday let that we have ever stayed in. The parking was a problem particularly at the weekend but we did always manage to find somewhere to park if not on the street in the car park. It’s a very clean welcoming place to stay and our children loved it too.
This is a fabulous apartment right on the beach glorious views and with its own secure parking. The apartment is spacious beautifully presented we had an amazing g stay and would definitley book again
The bungalow is a great place, we have stayed here before, but it is in need of a deep clean, this would bring my score for it back up again.
All was great. All clean and tidy and all necessary equipment in the kitchen. Location ideal for wandering to town and along the river.
Very good location. Nice views. well equipped kitchen. Nice conservatory. Shower efficient but bathroom a long way from bedrooms. Didn't use the garden as too cold, but looked good and a table and chairs available. Village church interesting. Excellent pub nearby for good food.
Good price for being able to sleep nine, the location is close to most of the attractions.The property is nicely furnished and have stayed here before .The cleanliness was let down this time with the kitchen cupboards and doors having splashes of what looked like coffee everywhere and needed a good wipe down and the carpets were not that clean, some repairs were also required as the shower was broken and the tiles in both bathrooms were cracked and many light bulbs were out but most of these were and are being fixed by the maintenance team (perhaps cleaning people should check and report these...more
Wilbercote is quite possibly the best equipped holiday rental which we have ever had. We usually do 2 or 3 per year and have done for a very long time. It was a delight, at long last, to find, scissors, sharp knives and a knife sharpener - the three things which we invariably have to recommend at almost all other rentals. We were a bit puzzled that there seemed a lack of crockery for a family of six as you would need to put the dishwasher on daily and there seemed to be only 2 large wineglasses. The coffee mugs were also quite stained and either need a mega clean or replacing. Some kitch...more
This is a super property for a larger group to stay in. Very good facilities. Clean and comfortable. Fantastic garden for children to play. A delightful hamper of fruit and easter goodies awaited us. Milk, eggs, butter, bacon etc was also provided. So many thanks for those. Very much appreciated. A great location for all activities in the area. The Yarbridge pub nearby is a must. Excellent food at reasonable prices, but you may have to book as it is extremely popular.
This is our 3rd year staying at seagulls for 3 weeks at a time. There are always 8 of us there with 2 members of the family coming for weekends in the sofa room. We love seagulls mainly for the location right on the beach and the spacious seaview rooms. A couple of issues on arrival, the cleaners hadn't been and the bed slats and door handles were broken. These handles had broke on us last year upstairs so think they need to think about changing them. But as usual a quick phone call to the agents and they sent an army of cleaners in so we didn't have to wait to long and we occupied ourselv...more
A comfortable apartment with super views. Quite compact but ok for two people. Some noise from flat above and from the solar water heating system.
The house was lovely everything we needed and more it was in the perfect location for us and we were relaxed from the moment we unlocked the front door it was exactly what we wanted we look forward to our next time
Rofford Lodge was a perfect base to explore the Isle of Wight and within comfortable walking distance to Yarmouth town. A very comfortable and well equipped property, everything that you could possibly need for a relaxed stay.
We stayed at Wighthaven for over 5 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything is provided and is modern and clean.
Lovely place. I made full use of the 2 sun terraces. Parking was good. WiFi worked well. Decent oven.
Really lovely place to stay in Ryde, within less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and nearby restaurants. Stayed here last year too, and will no doubt be back again next year.
The flat is in a good location for accessing the beach, coast path, shops, restaurants and public transport
Not the first time I’ve stayed here. It’s always been very comfortable and location is great. The first time was in 1999. Barbara Sherman
A lovely holiday was had by all of us (4 adults and 2 dogs). The location of the Gatehouse was brilliant, the beach was about 200 yds walk away, which was great to get up and and go out with the dogs and they are welcome on that beach all year round.The week we took our holiday the weather was brilliant all week. The Gatehouse was a comfortable place to stay, it had a large kitchen, the front bedroom was lovely with a balcony, en suite and a walk in wardrobe/dressing area and the conservatory (which was a good size) was where we spent most of the time when we weren't out and about. There was...more
We stopped here July 2018 and loved it this is why we have returned to woodleigh but this time the carpets and skirting boards were dirty and a musty smell from the kitchen & PS3 didn’t work The garden was dirty with old beer cans and weeds. We love the island and hopefully be looking for somewhere for next year. Regards Clare
Sea Grove is a very comfortable, clean, well equipped bungalow with beautiful views. We were two married couples so only used two of the bedrooms, which are placed at opposite ends of the property which worked out very well for us. The main bathroom is immediately adjacent to a king size bedroom and the other double has the ensuite. Unfortunately we couldn't use the garden for seating out as didn't have the weather, but perfect if weather permits. Parking at property good too. Two small points. The first we notice has been mentioned before in a previous review. There is not a shower tra...more
We were a family of 10, three generations. The house, garden, beds and linen/towels provided were all good. The kitchen is overstocked with the owners personal possessions, and we had to find and separate a set of plates and cutlery on the first day to use for the week. There are also too many personal possessions in some of the rooms leaving very little space for the guests. It feels like you are staying in someone else's home rather than a holiday home, we felt that the pricing should reflect this. Sadly the house does not live up to it's 4* rating (on cottages.com). The kitchen was not very...more
Overall we were very happy with our stay. Bonito is a small bungalow in a elevated position with wonderful sea views from the panoramic lounge window. Ideal for two adults; the second bedroom is quite small and possibly only suitable for a child. Double bed very comfortable and room adequate but not large. All furnishings are simple but tasteful and the kitchen is well equipped. The shower room and toilet are separate but both rooms are tiny; reconfiguring this into one space would be beneficial. The lounge/diner is spacious, light and welcoming. The outside space is attractive and offers diff...more
An excellent location for a relaxing holiday. The apartment was well appointed, warm and comfortable. The views of the channel were spectacular and most certainly enhanced our time there. We would certainly be prepared to book it again.
This is a lovely property in a quiet woodland setting. It is in the centre of the island yet still handy for places all around the island. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything you could want on hand. Muriel and Michael were lovely and very helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay there and just wish it could have been longer.
Our stay at The Old Signal House was just perfect. The location is stunning and in such a unique position. A lovely walk via the coastal path takes you to the nearest village of Niton which was a little gem. We sampled Joe's Bar / Post Office for some fabulous pizza and beer, also tried the Buddle and the White Lion which were both very good. The latter we went for a birthday meal and had an excellent night. The Old Signal House itself is a restoration of an original telecommunications outlet which has been restored superbly. The bedrooms all had ensuites which were contemporary and clean. The...more
We had a lovely stay at Avalon! It had a good amount of space for the 5 of us and a very pretty garden to sit out in. A good location with the shop just up the road, off-road parking and near the bus stop. The kitchen was very well stocked with lots of pots and pans and utensils! A lovely welcome having bread, milk and butter provided. We were very lucky with the weather and had sunshine the whole week for our stay! We would definitely return.
Lovely cottage in great location. Well equipped. Fridge faulty, gas hob difficult to light; otherwise all equipment worked well.
Appeared clean but don't look too closely. Desperately needs a shower. Very cluttered with nik naks. No room in cupboards for food. Beds were comfortable. The stairs were unsuitable for people with mobility problems. All the extras were very appreciated but the Voucher for the pub meal.. Don't go there. That was 'gross'. Regarding the Island, nothing was too far away. A lot of things were just a poor value for money compared to the rest of UK. Garlic Farm and Crazy Golf in Sandown to name but a few. The Donkey Sanctuary was excellent as was the Steam Festival. The Needles disappointing with a...more
This was our first time at 4 Brooks close and we intend to return again. a true holiday getaway with plenty of space for family to relax and have fun. the garden was a great to sunbath in or to play in. Little pond and beautiful established trees and plants in flower to enjoy. Barbeque and seating provided in garden too. This was a true holiday home from home with a few games and books and table tennis set for the family to enjoy. bedrooms were great my little lad particulary enjoyed it in the loft room. conservatory was great, kitchen well equipped so able to cook a full meal no problem ...more
Morse Cottage is in a lovey location with plenty of room but the cottage we found to be very tired. All the curtains require maintenance throughout the building and one set seemed to be running with moths. We did leave a list of things on the dining table that we found e.g. no cereal bowls for breakfast (we ate out of kitchen bowls), the bottom tray of the dishwasher was broken and would not slide out - parts broken parts left in the fruit bowl, the ensuite toilet seat was broken on arrival, the iron did not work (no fuse), no toaster, no welcome pack with instructions and safety notes and n...more
As you see from the earlier questions we were very happy with the house and it’s location with an excellent garden for the dogs. If we have one criticism it’s the fact that towels were not provided - as one needs at least six - two for the toilets two for each bedroom one for the utility room and one for the kitchen, and if we’d used more than two bedrooms with a full house as it were another four would be required. However, that’s not to take away how very happy we were overall with our stay at Norlands.
Cottage was a great size for our family holiday but completely let down by the cleanliness and lack of preparation for guests. Never before have we arrived at a cottage to find dirty dishes in the dishwasher, rubbish left in the kitchen and an oven that belched smoke due to spilt food on the oven floor. Lightbulbs also needed replacing, lounge carpet needed vacuuming as there were still crisps left on it and some towels were stained. Have to say that our complaints were addressed immediately but a bottle of wine and chocolates as an apology don’t quite do it. Real shame as the location and...more
Very good place to stay nicely near the shops and bus stops great Seaview and with a very CalmNight life to enjoy
Enjoyed our week in the cottage. Comfortable beds, good appliances e.g dishwasher and cooker. Lighting in lounge too bright bought some table lamps to use while there!
As a family of 5 with mixed needs we have holidayed at Wight Lodge for several years and have always found it to be fine. The location is the thing for us with beautiful views, without this, we wouldn't have returned year after year. This year's stay will probably be our last, the property is decorated and furnished exactly the same as it was 6 years ago, the same mattresses and beds are still being used which I would have thought would have been replaced long before now as the beds are very uncomfortable. The cleanliness was well below the standard required, despite the letting agent ...more
A top floor apartment, with a lot of stairs to get to. Three good size bedrooms and open plan kitchen. Dining room, watch out for the sloping ceilings, where you have to play "people Tetris" to get 4 people sat down together. Large front room with fantastic views, but very small TV. Bathroom has bath, shower, sink and toilet, but shower head isn't adjustable with low water pressure. No WiFi available!
We’ve stayed in a number of UK holiday properties over the years but this has been our first disappointment. This could be such a lovely place and indeed a few years back it seems it once was, if the older entries in the guestbook are anything to go by. A quick google shows the whole farm was up for sale in 2018 (and what it should look like) and so I presume since then things have become a bit neglected. Island Holiday Homes (who we booked through) also need to pull their finger out and inspect properties on their books if this example is representative of what they offer as high quality acco...more
I would agree with previous Review in that the emphasis was on the kitchen for its size,but you do not live your holiday in a kitchen,we purchased a plate rack as we found it inconvenient without one (we left this behind for next occupant).as per previous review the curtains were definitely not for sleeping. The furniture in the lounge was looking rather tired and beginning to get rather uncomfortable and grubby. Apart from that I do have too say that it was in a wonderful location. As a regular holiday maker to the Island over the last 10 Years, this was prob...more
Good location - not far from shops in Shanklin. You can walk to the shops. Walk to the beach is a little far. Space for one car to park. Double yellow lines outside and in neighboring roads. Apartment is a good size and relatively clean. Garden was shabby - bird poo outside back door - had to step over it all. Rubbish was piled up outside the kitchen window with flies hanging around. Unused, water filled food compost containers left in garden, not good for toddlers to be messing with. Lots of leaves and weeds in the garden, garden chairs had rusty springs - not like the picture. House...more
