The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, on average about 2–4 miles (3–6 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire, separated from the mainland by a strait called the Solent. The Island has many resorts which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.
The Island has a rich history, including a brief status as an independent kingdom in the 15th century. Until 1995, like Jersey and Guernsey, the Island had its own Governor—most notably Lord Mountbatten from 1969–1974, after which he became Lord Lieutenant until his assassination in 1979.
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 at East Cowes. The Island's maritime and industrial history encompasses boat building, sail making, the manufacture of flying boats, the world's first hovercraft and the testing and development of Britain's space rockets. 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 a seaside resort and civil parish established in the Victorian era on the south coast of the Isle of Wight, England. It lies underneath St Boniface Down (which, at 240 metres (787 feet), is the highest point on the Isle of Wight), and is built on steep slopes and cliffs leading down to the sea. The higher part is referred to as Upper Ventnor (although officially it is Lowtherville); the lower part, where most of the amenities are located, being known as Ventnor. Ventnor is sometimes understood as including the coastal villages of St. Lawrence to one side and Bonchurch to the other.
The sheltered location on the cliff of the Island's south coast means the area experiences a microclimate with more sunny days than much of the British Isles, and fewer frosts. This has allowed many species of subtropical plant to be successfully planted and maintained. Ventnor Botanic Garden is particularly notable.

"Perfect holidays - nice and well equipped appartment"
On arrival we immediately felt at home at Royal Marine House. 1st floor appartment is well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD and of course WIFI.
We loved the view from the windows, looking to the seaside and beach.
When lying in bed, you can hear the sound of the waves.
Ventnor itself is a nice town with all you need, including a very good Fish&Chips at the harbour.
This was our first time on the Isle of Wight, but most probably not the last. As we went around the island and visited several villages and towns, I really can recommend staying in Ventnor.

"Best place on the Isle of Wight"
We stayed at the Marine House for a week in the school holidays and would have loved to have stayed longer. We are a family with a daughter 19 and son 12. We were very pleased with the property. It had the most amazing views and was very well equipped and maintained. We wouldn't hesitate to return and of all the lovely places we visited we decided that Ventnor was the best place to stay on the Isle of Wight with a lovely little beach and some great places to eat out.

"Comfortable, relaxing, great views and location."
Firstly, the booking process was simple, and the owner's communication was excellent.
We couldn't have found a more perfect apartment for our needs at this time. At the end of October we weren't expecting a warm, beach holiday, but being able to sit in the lounge or main bedroom and see such a great, sweeping view of the sea was still uplifting!
The apartment was very well-equipped, warm and comfortable. There was a huge choice of videos, and even some games and interesting info about the area. I loved the book about the old Royal Marine Hotel.
My husband and I stayed with our 12 year old daughter and her friend. We felt happy enough to let them walk down to the beach and to the cafes on their own as it was so near and little traffic to negotiate.
The only downside is what other guests have mentioned, and that is the parking space. The drive is very narrow, and the space tight. However, we managed in our Zafira, and there was an even bigger vehicle in the other space. We just avoided using the car, and only moved it once during the stay. It made us go for some lovely long walks and try the buses!
I would love to visit again.

The booking process was very simple and efficient, and deposit returned promptly afterwards. We stayed here for a week in mid-October. It's a great apartment, and the views from the windows are great. Good location: a short walk to several pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops, and down the hill to the beach. There is a good selection of videos, and we found several to watch with the kids (9 and 11). Parking is tricky with a larger vehicle, but you get used to it (it wouldn't stop us coming back).

"A fantastic holiday"
We are regular visitors to this beautiful Island and self catering is our favourite type of holiday.
Booking was very easy and any queries that I had were quickly redressed by Richard, the owner.
The apartment is the best that we have ever stayed in, it contained everything that we could need for our stay and the view was out of this world. As the windows were low we were able to sit on the comfy settee and watch the small fishing boats, yachts, surfers, ferries, and even the occasional navy ship sailing by.
It is only a short walk both into the town and down to the beach where there are a number of cafes and restaurants.
Parking at the back was a little tight but we managed without any problem.
To sum up it was a wonderful two weeks, fantastic weather and we will definitely be returning
