Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Apartment sleeps a maximum of 4 people; children under 5 years of age cannot be accommodated as regulated by our insurance cover. Also, we cannot accept pets of any kind.
The kitchen comprises a full size electric cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery which are all contained with-in the stylishly-built units, along with an iron and counter-top ironing board. There is also an airer/dryer for hand washed/rinsed through items.
Separated from the kitchen by a prep counter we have a plush 2 and 3 seater sofa in the living area along with a separate dining table and chairs for your meals.
We do have a rather large TV with SKY Freeview and a DVD player, a cosy fireplace with an electric working wood burning effect stove, but that’s just for show as I am sure you won’t need it during the hot summer months! For the cooler part of the year, (early Spring or late Autumn nights) there are 2 additional Oil filled radiators supplied if needed. Alternatively when the weather is at its best you might feel the need to use the Air Cooling Fan to cool down the Apartment!!!
The bathroom has a corner bath with an electric shower, sink, heated towel rail and a full size toilet!
You also have a private patio, equipped with your own patio table, chairs and parasol, where you can eat, drink and enjoy the surrounding panoramic view of the Bay. Spend hot sunny days or balmy summer nights sitting on your patio lazily watching the world go by after eating here or dining out at one of many fantastic eateries – some I can recommend really close by, others further inland.
The bedrooms consist of a double room and a twin bedded room; both have a wardrobe, dressing table and bedside cabinet(s) with touch lighting lamps. The beds are made-up for your arrival, but we do not supply towels.
We can also offer WiFi for those who either feel the need that they “just have to check up on” work or for those that can’t go without Facebook™!
There is an allocated parking space for one car at the back of the Apartment.

The Isle of Wight region
Offering over 500 miles of footpaths, and stretches of stunning coastline, the Isle of Wight is perfect for a walking holiday or a family break. Enjoy the unspoilt scenery, or have an activity filled vacation with sailing, windsurfing and paragliding all on offer locally. We have many cycle tracks across the Island. The Island is world famous for the annual Cowes Week Regatta event in late August, and in May it hosts the largest walking festival anywhere in the UK.
Shanklin is most famed for its good weather and the pretty Old Village, which is located on the south side of the town, towards Ventnor and Bonchurch. The village is extremely pretty and most tourists head to the area for the thatched cottages, quaint shops and old fashioned tea rooms and thatched public houses, and attractive surroundings.
In the heart of The Old Village are several pubs which are attractive and provide good food and a great venue for a lively evening. Just past the entrance to The Crab Inn is the start of Shanklin Chine, a deep gorge carved out by a stream, which is a restful and picturesque place to spend the morning or afternoon and you exit right next to the beach and can refresh yourself in Fisherman's Cottage. In the evening the waterfalls and woodland are illuminated, giving the gardens a totally different aspect and atmosphere, a must if you are visiting Shanklin.
