"Sparkling clean and perfect"

I've stayed at a few holiday rentals and this was definitely one of the best. The cottage was perfect for myself, my husband and two young children. It was spotlessly clean and freshly decorated. All the amenities we needed were there, including a combi boiler, dishwasher, freezer, Freesat TV and washing machine (essential when travelling with kids!). The enclosed garden was lovely and very private. The neighbouring properties were quiet, making this retreat peaceful. The addition of off road parking and its central location made this the ideal holiday rental. The beach and the pier was 5 minutes walk away, along with The Rock Shop, butchers, bakery, restaurants, takeaways, post office, Boots and a Sainsbury's local. We travelled out and around the Isle during the day, but came "home" to relax and enjoy the beach every night. The owner, Jacqueline, is friendly and helpful and made the arrangements nice and easy. Many thanks!

"A wonderful find!"

We found the cottage exceptionally well-equipped, very clean and great value for money. It is in an ideal position - convenient for beaches, walks, shops and restaurants - and is one of the best self-catering properties we have found. We hope to return before too long.

"Very pleasant"

We found that this little cottage was just what we required for our weekend away with our 2 children; short walking distance to the pleasant family beach at Sandown, cottage very clean and nicely fitted out and the owner extremely helpful and easy to deal with.

You might find it a bit more snug than you would want if you were staying any longer with 2 adults/ 2 children but really excellent value and we would certainly book again for a long weekend.
