'Seashells' epitomises beach side living, with spectacular sea views from the lounge and bedroom. We chose it particularly for its warm and welcoming ambience and perfect location. Constantly updated, this relaxing apartment could suit a romantic getaway for two and should provide all you need in cosy comfort. You can sit outside on the balcony and enjoy the sea breeze whilst relaxing and unwinding in the sunshine.

The Esplanade is just a few steps away, with its various cafes, bars, restaurants, and of course the glorious sandy / shingle beach.

Ventnor is the quintessential Victorian seaside resort and is said to be one of the sunniest spots on the Island, with a long sandy coastline. it's a great place to catch some rays without the need for airport taxes!

The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, 3–5 miles (5–8 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire. The island is known for its natural beauty, its sailing and its resorts, which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.

It was home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and to Queen Victoria, who built her much loved summer residence and final home Osborne House here. It is home to the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival, Bestival and the recently-revived Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was the largest rock music event ever held. The Island has some exceptional wildlife and is one of the richest locations of dinosaur fossils in Europe.


Ventnor is the quintessential Victorian seaside town with a Mediterranean feel, and is one of the sunniest spots on the Isle of Wight. Built on a series of terraces beneath St. Boniface Down the town's roads zigzag down to the sea past the beautifully planted cascades. The town boasts a variety of bars, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms, and independent shops, combining age-old elegance with a blend of shabby-chic quirkiness.

The seafront enjoys a surprisingly mild climate due to sheltering cliffs and southerly aspect. The Esplanade has a part sand, part fine shingle beach, good for sunbathing and swimming and adjacent to pubs, cafes, amusements, paddling pool and seafront car park.

Ventnor is a step back in time to those memorable days out we all enjoyed at a great British seaside destination.

Attractions include:

- Esplanade (beach, harbour, paddling pool, cafes, restaurants)

- Various coastal walks

- Organised boat trips

- Surfing & watersports

- Donkey Sanctuary

- Fishery & Yacht Haven

- Golf course

- IoW Studio Glass

- Maritime & smuggling museums

- Botanic Gardens & Park

Although not on the seafront, it's behind and above seafront properties, so close enough to the beach. The view from the balcony is stunning, which was just as well for us, as the short approach … More

"Wow! What a view."

An amazing place to just relax and watch the world go by. Seashells is clean, comfortable and very good value for money. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is here, even a welcoming bottle of wine. Lots of places to eat close by and the Spyglass Inn should be on everyone's itinerary. The food is amazing and so are the prices. Our only concern was lack of parking but that proved to be no problem as there is a public car park up the road and we moved our car to the seafront each evening when spaces became available. 6pm - 10am is free or we paid £6.60 at 10am for 24 hours.
