Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
'Seashells' epitomises beach side living, with spectacular sea views from almost every room. We chose it particularly for its warm and welcoming ambience and perfect location. Recently refurbished, this relaxing apartment should provide all you need for three people in cosy comfort. .
This versatile accommodation could suit a romantic getaway, or equally a small family beach holiday complete with buckets and spades.
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.

"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.

"Excellent apartment and location. Shame about the parking issue."
The apartment is ideally situated, with a wonderful seascape. The constant sound of the sea was mesmorising, especially as we live so far from the coastline ourselves. The apartment has very good facilites (however, an oven glove and proper oven tray would be useful; as would an adjustment to the heights of the rails in the bedroom wardrobe - one was very low, the other was too high to reach!). The main issue (as mentioned by others) is parking. The apartment is advertised as having a parking space. What is not made clear is that "Seashells" consists of two apartments, but only has one parking space; the second parking space being owned by an adjacent property, which is not a holiday let. A great holiday had, with lots of beautiful walks undertaken. Even the weather behaved!
Thank you for your kind comments Karen.I will be looking at buying an oven tray and oven glove ! You were unlucky with your week as the other two apartments had guests staying so parking was tricky..As Ive said before there are two spaces for three apartments and any parking on the seafront is a premium as Im sure you'll appreciate.

"Great break !"
We had a really good time staying in Seashells over Easter holiday.
Perfect location, fantastic views from our apartment, great pubs and coffee places near by.
The only disadvantage can be parking as there is only 2 spaces for 3 apartments. We were very lucky as one of the neighbours allowed us to park next to their property, otherwise we would have to leave the car by the sea front and that would be additional cost as from 1 st April parking is not free of charge.
