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.

"Seafood for the soul"
This is a wonderful apartment, suitable for one person or a couple. It has unrivalled views of the sea and is beautifully appointed - everything to ensure guests' comfort and enjoyment has been provided by the thoughtful owners.
Relax in the comfortable lounge, sleep soundly in the very relaxing bedroom or cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen - there's nothing here to disappoint.
The sea views are amazing - spend your time sitting on the lovely little balcony admiring the passing parade and the changing weather. You'll wish you could stay at Royal Marine House studio forever.

The apartment, although billed as a studio, is spacious, clean and modern with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The booking procedure could not have been any simpler.
The directions were excellent we were soon parked and unpacked ready to explore. The
apartment is ideally situated just above a lovely bay, with amazing views of the sea and literally two mins to the beach. I would recommend the apartment to anyone wanting to
get away from it all but have all the amenities close at hand.

"Perfect for what we required"
The Studio apartment is well designed and perfect for our 2 night stay. It was easy to find and very close to the seafront and town. Although we had poor weather we still managed to enjoy the balcony which gives an excellent view across Ventnor Harbour and to the cruise liners further out. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent apartment, view & location. Plus if you're up late at night you'll see badgers walking the street.… More

The studio appartment is fabulous. It has a south facing balcony overlooking the sea. The road it's located in is very quiet. I stayed there on my own but there's plenty of room for a couple… More

"The perfect place for a relaxing holiday!"
I rented this lovely studio apartment for a relaxing mini-break and got more than I bargained for The apartment is cosy, tastily decorated, with all the necessary amenities and the added value of amazing sea views.
Ventnor high street and beach are within 5 minute walk and there are some fantastic walks to do in the area with a large choice of public footpaths. The tourist leaflets available at the house were most helpful when planning visits!
If like me you haven't got a car, the local bus service is very efficient and the closest bus stop again less than 5 minute walk away from the house.
The owner was very helpful throughout the booking process and very sweetly left a bottle of red wine for me to find on arrival.
I loved it so much that I didn't want to leave and am planning to go back there as soon as possible! Highly recommended apartment!

"Great little apartment in a lovely location"
We loved staying in the studio apartment with the sound of the sea in the distance. The apartment had everything we needed and was done out really nicely. Looking forward to going back already.

"Looking forward to a return visit!"
Stayed in the ground floor apartment, really well kept, clean and modern. Views out to the sea are fantastic, and great location, easy enough to get down quickly to the sea front and bars, even with a buggy. Beds were really comfy and walk in shower was great. No hassle booking and good communication and info from the owner. Would certainly return.

"All You Could Ask For"
This was a return visit, so we knew what to expect - which was absolutely everything we need for a trouble-free holiday. The position in Ventnor is ideal and the apartment is laid out in an extremely clever way which maximises the effective space available. As always, it was totally clean and tidy. I havbe just booked another visit for 2012.
