"We couldn't have chosen a better place for our holiday stay!"
Excellent communication from the outset - Eileen was prompt, friendly and helpful.
Wighsands is easy to get to from the station, on a lovely, quiet street.
The fact that it was spring, flowers were out in full bloom and the sun was shining and birds singing, all helped.... but I can imagine the place being lovely in any season.
The bungalow is superbly furnished - modern, comfy and homely - and well-equipped. A lot of thought and care has clearly gone into all the details. I loved finding plaques and magnets with little uplifting thoughts all over the place!
The welcome treats were a thoughtful touch and appreciated.
Nice big kitchen.
The bed in the master bedroom could have been a bit bigger, but it just made for cosier sleeping, to look at it positively!
A nice big garden with a shed full of toys, to add to the cabinet of books, toys, puzzles and DVDs in the lounge.
Less than 5 mins walk away from the beach. Beach toys and towels provided.
One of the nicest holiday rentals we've stayed at in a while & we hope to be back one day!

"Excellent cottage, good location, thoughtful owners."
The cottage is really good for young families as they have so many toys, games and DVDs for the kids to enjoy on wet days, and the play den in the garden is really well equipped with toys. It is really beautifully furnished, exceptionally clean and tidy and the location is excellent for the beach and exploring the Island. Had a lovely week in spite of the weather. Would definitely go back.

"Can we stay here again :o)"
Lovely bungalow in easy walking distance of the beach. Kids loved the garden and shed full of toys. Wi-fi access appreciated by the grown-ups!
Well equipped and maintained property with lovely touches to make you feel welcome.
The owner always responded quickly for any questions we had before and during the stay.

"The best place we have rented."
This was a great place ,clean and furnished to a high standard .It was very well stocked with everything you need for a good holiday even beach equipment in the garage. Lots of toys in the play house in the private garden. The location was brilliant, quiet but am minute from the main road and 5 minutes from Tesco . We walked to the beach several times- directions were in one of 3 or so folders of information and leaflets for local attractions. Lovely big TV as well as a DVD / video player with a good selection of titles to watch . Overall I would recommend Wightsands to anyone - we have already booked for next year.

"Fantastic house, excellent location, children loved it, couldn't have asked for more"
This house was fabulous. The decor and the furnishings were beautiful. Very clean and comfortable. The play house full of toys was a big hit with the children as was the garden. Very close to the beach, fun fair, restaurants. Perfect!! Did not want for anything!

"Fantastic property, great location and very welcoming!"
Wightsands was a great property, and we really enjoyed staying there. Our young (nearly 3 year old) daughter had terrific fun with all the toys & books, and the welcome and small touches made us feel very much at home. It's only 5 minutes walk from a lovely beach, which we made the most of!

"property and location ideal for families"
The added touches in the property made it feel like home rather than a holiday let. The garden was a secure area for children with plenty of toys and their own little house made the holiday relaxing.
The location of the beach in walking distance allowed us to leave the car behind.

"Best place to stay for families on IOW!"
We've been to the Isle of Wight twice previously, and although the other places were also lovely this was by far the best. The location is fantastic, literally a 5 minute walk to a fantastic beach where the kids (6 & 2) collected shells all morning, with a play park and duck pond a further 5-10 mins on top. The house is spacious, furnished to a 5 star standard and there were thoughtful gifts of chocolate & wine on arrival from Eileen who is lovely. The playden in the garden is fantastic, all the kids favourite toys - it entertained for many hours. There were also loads of board games & DVDs for the family - we had many enjoyable games of junior scrabble and buggy bingo! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful place to create a memorable & happy holiday xxx
