Just to say what a marvelous holiday we had, everything was perfect.
Looking forward to coming again.

Dear Mrs Dineen
This is a really lovely apartment, equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The balcony and main bedroom have genuine sea views and the whole flat is very spacious. The key box entry system takes all the pressure off when coming from the ferry as you do not have to worry about being there at a particular time to meet someone. Freshwater Bay is very unspoilt.
The flat has everything you could want including buckets and spades to borrow. We would certainly come again (June 2014).
Dear Mrs Dineen
Myself, husband, daughter and fiancé have just returned from one week's holiday at your flat. We have been regular visitors to the Island for many years, so know it well.
However, I can safely say that we have never stayed in such a lovely apartment and location as yours. Everything was as stated in the description and more! It was clean, well equipped and very comfortable, everything was to hand, making for a lovely holiday (even the weather was kind)!
I would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely flat and hope to return myself one day.
If it is in order I would like to post a similar review on Trip Advisor, as this little gem needs to be shared!
Many thanks and wishing you well for the future.

The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight covers an area of 380 km2. A large part, much of which is on the West of the Island where our apartment is situated, is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island boasts 57 miles of varied coastline and 258 km2 of farmland.
There are hundreds of miles of interesting walking routes whether they be coastal, downland or inland - you can access several walks directly from the apartment without using your car. There are many villages both inland and coastal. Newport is the County town of the Island. It has an excellent variety of shops, boutiques and supermarkets - Morrisons, Sainsburys, Lidl, M&S and BHS to name but a few. It also holds a Farmers Market every Friday. A Waitrose in East Cowes and an Aldi in Cowes means we are spoilt for choice! There is also an Arts Centre, a Multiplex Cinema and a large leisure centre in Newport. There are many attractions such as stately homes, forts, castles, an Abby and gardens, many of which are owned by the National Trust and English Heritage - one of these is Osborne House at East Cowes. This was the summer home and indeed the final residence of Queen Victoria. There is plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities - sailing, surfing, body boarding, windsurfing, paragliding, swimming, sea canoeing, cycling, golf and horse riding. Or why not take a boat trip round the Island or go on an organised sea fishing trip. If railways are your interest take a trip on the Isle of Wight steam railway at Havenstreet.
Locally, Yarmouth and Freshwater have a good variety of local shops and cafes as well as a Co-op, a Sainsbury's Express and a leisure centre. Just down the lane from the apartment is Dimbola Lodge - Dimbola was the home of the celebrated Victorian Photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. Now it is a museum dedicated to her life and work. It also has a tearoom and bookshop and the picturesque thatched church of St. Agnes is 100 yards up the road. There are also a number of pubs and hotels in the vicinity.
There are many places to eat and drink locally, to suit all budgets. Here are a selection of just a few of them! -
The Blue Crab - in Yarmouth.
The Hut at Colwell Bay - it is right down on the Promenade - they get their fish straight from the local fishermen
Justin Brown at Farringford Manor (just up the road from the apartment)
The Red Lion at Old Freshwater - again not far at all from the apartment
On the Rocks - in Yarmouth - cooks steaks and the like on hot rocks at your table.
The Kings Head - in Yarmouth
Forresters - in Yarmouth - opposite The Blue Crab
Isla's Conservatory at The George - in Yarmouth
The Highdown Inn - further up the road from Farringford Manor
The Sun Inn at Hulverstone near Brook. Wonderful views from their garden.

"Lovely apartment with superb views"

I am sorry that you found the WiFi to be hit and miss during your visit. I don't know why since we ourselves lived in the apartment between October and March and I can honestly say that we never had a problem during this time and we had 3 computers in constant use during that time, also no one else since then has mentioned this being a problem! Hopefully it was a one off that happened during your visit for which I can only apologise but of course it was out of our control!

With regard to there currently not being a wardrobe in the bed room with the double bed in - we have only recently bought this apartment and as a result we are still trying to find a wardrobe that will work in that bedroom. However the wardrobe we have put into the twin bedded room is of a large capacity and can easily accommodate the requirements of 4 people.
