“Peacfull idylic accomodation but near enough to civilisation.” The cottage is charming, quaint and beautifully presented. Perfect hideaway for a couple. Just the right size for two (although there is the option of the sofa bed in the lounge if it's needed) Well behaved pets are allowed so our Jack Russel was very happy to come on holiday as well. Have stayed here three times it has always been clean and well equiped. The woodburner is a welcome addition to the central heating, very welcome in febuary! Nice comfortable sofa and bed with a big feather duvet. An excellent walk in shower with plenty of hot water and a heated floor when you get out. The upper garden and decking has a couple of wooden sun loungers also a table and chairs, from which you can sit and watch the sea whilst enjoying the peace and quiet. The hideaway is located down a quiet lane, well away from any passing traffic. The beach is no more than 2 minutes walk away just down the path. The Bonchurch inn is a 5 to 10 minute walk up the lane and is the perfect place to eat and drink. Beer from barrel and very good italian food. Ventnor is a pleasant 1/2 hour walk along the seafront with its good mix of cafe's and bars. The perfect location really. Owners Lucy and Sean have always made us welcome. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.
“The Overlook” We were very pleased with everything in the house, the view is spectacular from both balconies and from the main windows, lots of parking space , we loved the built in coffee machine. We couldn't get theTV to work but it didn't matter when you could look out the windows .a very enjoyable stay with plenty of room for 3 generations.
“A peaceful total retreat from the pace of life.” If your looking for a total retreat this is it. Off the beaten tract, quiet & peaceful. Amazing views over the Solent. If you want to venture out it's location is good for many of the island's attractions, with excellent eating houses 10 to 15 minutes away. There is a camp sight across the bay in short walking distance if you don't want to drive. The chalet is solar powered for it's electricity - ample for lighting and charging mobile phones, but if you are the type that needs to use straighteners, hair dryers or heated rollers this holiday is not for you. Shower, cooker and fridge is powered by gas, so there are no concerns there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

“Prime location and spacious accommodation” This flat was in a perfect location overlooking harbour with panoramic sea views. Accommodation was light and spacious, particularly in the lounge and main bedroom
(which had a very comfortable bed). Everything required was provided, although we did not make use of the cooking facilities as we ate out for all meals. (Ventnor has a good variety of eating places). All in all, this made for a very pleasant and relaxing break which we would repeat without hesitation.

Thank you for your review. Firstly we wholeheartedly apologise for the fact that our lovely apartment was not up to its normal high standard of cleanliness. We pride ourselves on our reputation that we have built over he years and we are very upset to learn that this was not an example of this. We are addressing this with our cleaning company and although there is no excuse, we thank you for bringing it our attention to ensure that it will not happen again.
Regarding the maintenance issues, we tried to get them rectified as soon as we could. We ask all guests to inform us of any problems, but had no notification of anything wrong prior to your arrival.
We only learned of the problems on Saturday evening /Sunday morning. We were unable to call anyone out over the weekend but had a carpenter and a cleaner come in first thing on Monday morning. You told the carpenter that the main reason for your concern about the blinds was that the damage would be attributed to you, and it was not necessary to fix them whilst you were there, otherwise they would have been repaired. They have been repaired this week whilst there is no-one staying. Everything else was dealt with, as you requested.
The guests downstairs have stayed several times over the last few years, and we have never received a complaint about them before. It came as a complete surprise to us and if we had known that there was a problem whilst you were staying, we could have addressed it. The first we have heard was in the above review.
Again we are very sorry that everything was not perfect, as it is very important to us that our guests really enjoy their holiday and our apartment.
“Perfect setting.” Really comfortable clean bungalow, peaceful and quiet with great views. Loved being so close the coast path and an easy walk to Yarmouth. Excellent location in general for walking in West Wight. Would definitely return. Thanks, Marina!
“Fantastic apartment in a spectacular location” We have just had a lovely weekend in this wonderful apartment. The owners were so kind & helpful. It is beautifully furnished with everything you could ever need. Tea, coffee & biscuits were also provided, there was even milk & fruit juice in the fridge when we arrived, so we were able to enjoy a drink on the balcony, before we had to find a shop. We spent so much time out there admiring the view, having a glass of wine in the evening, even eating breakfast out there. It was lovely watching the boats & being able to see the whole beach and surrounding cliffs. The great location meant we were able to leave the car & walk around Shanklin, it was very handy having the cliff lift near us as well. We would love to have another holiday here. It is definitely the best place we have stayed in on the island.
“Cosy but spacious enough for six” Very comfortable 2-night stay. Caravan is modern and smart with good facilities. It's on the inland side of Hillway Road, so it's a good 10-minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the main site facilities (clubhouse, swimming pools, etc.), but the view from the caravan is good and the site was very quiet. We didn't try out the site facilities but all looked ok, quite a big site though.

“Superb holiday cottage in great location” Woodland Cottage is a very well-equipped, quiet, and comfortable place to stay. We had a very enjoyable week here, and even with six of us we didn't get under each other's feet. The downstairs is bright and airy, due to the large sliding glass doors and open-plan layout. The kitchen has pretty much every item that we needed, including some condiments too.
Bedrooms were all of a good size, with comfortable beds. The three bathrooms were good, with a lovely drencher shower in the master bedroon en-suite.
Yarmouth is just a 15-minute walk away, along the beach. A ten-minute walk the other way leads to a stunning viewpoint overlooking the Solent and Hirst Castle. And the garden is huge too, leading into the woods. The children both enjoyed playing on the trampoline, and we liked watching the red squirrels, rabbits, and pheasants.
I would recommend this holiday cottage very highly - we'd definitely stay here again.
“Lovely "Home from Home" apartment for two” I booked this apartment because the reviews were great and the photos looked good and we were not disappointed in any way. The ground floor apartment is perfect for two with all the mod cons and comforts you would like. The balcony is a delight on a sunny day although with typical British weather we could only use it a few times! We loved the location at the top of Shanklin as that gave us great views across the bay but if you walk into the old village there is a fairly steep hill down (which feels even steeper on the way back!) Good exercise but there is pretty good parking if you prefer to use the car. The apartment really felt like home when we returned from a day out.

“Amazing place!” We stayed for 2 nights last weekend 12th-14th August 2016. I was worried about the bed as it is the most important thing to be able to sleep well wherever you are, but I shouldn't have worried as the bed was amazingly comfortable, it felt like memory foam!
The place itself was spotlessly clean and the pictures don't do it justice! and the welcome package of food and fruit was so unexpected and meant we didn't have to buy anything for the 2 days we were there.
I was so sad to leave and we are considering going back for a longer period next year. Thank you Lisa for being so welcoming!

“Amazing facilities in a perfect location!” Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in mid July and we had a great time! The apartment is in the perfect location! If you go right out the front door you are at the beach, left and you are in shanklin's town center. The open top bus stop is on the same road, it virtually stops right outside the apartment. The apartment itself was beautiful. You can tell that no expense has been spared in the finish, everything is top of the range. The shower was superb! The bed was excellent, I had the best nights sleep in ages! There is a vast range of cooking equipment and facilities and 3 flatscreen tv's throughout the apartment! The off street parking was a real bonus and the sun terrace and decking out the back was great! I can't recommend this place enough. gwen and Steve were extremely helpful, they couldn't do enough for us! They had lists of restaurants and activities for us to try and were really friendly. The apartment was spotless, I genuinely can't fault it anyway. It was just what we were looking for and we had a great time! I don't normally do trip advisor reviews but I felt this place deserved a special mention...we will be back again!
