“Nice location”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

The letting was just spacious enough for my wife and three children, there was a good cot for the three-year-old, and there was a fold-away wooden table to eat at. The location was fine, in Yaverland, a mile or less from the beaches of Sandown, an easy walk straight up the largely open road that runs parallel to the water, past a big playground for kids that is one of the best we saw. We never actually met the owners, which I think is the reality for all renters, despite an earlier review of about ten brief words that mentioned 'lovely owners' (as if they were there to greet you). But the key was right next to the door in the key-safe, so no problems getting in and getting settled in. It was a pleasant place. Standing outside the front door, off to the left you could see the cliffs bulking out over the water, and there was a path towards them. Nights were peaceful and quiet. The bathroom with well-sealed shower booth was spacious, not crammed; but the upper window, the long horizontal venting window, cannot be closed, needs lubrication. If it's cold and draughty out of doors, you must keep the bathroom door pulled shut. (Which, incidentally, you really have to push/pull shut, and it snaps into the frame quite loudly). 'Chalet', as used here, is not really Swiss style. Coming from central Europe, though, we did find most British housing stock to be poor quality anyway, so there is nothing noteworthy here. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, just wide enough for an 'economy' sleep for two adults.However, the bunkbed mattresses need replacing. The mattress springs are right there, pressing up against the thin covering cloth, and you can feel them with your palms without even pressing down. They're the first thing you feel when you lay your hand on them. No padding whatsoever. The two older kids woke up tired and sore the first morning, and for the rest of our stay they lay their bedding down on top of the springs as insulation, which meant they slept largely uncovered. The kitchen was spacious enough and had the sink under the window. But when my wife set out to make pasta, a common enough holiday meal for a family, the sauce pans were only big enough to heat a can of soup. I phoned the owner to ask if he could supply a decent family-sized pasta or stew pot. Since he didn't pick up, I had to leave a message. He took two days to get back to me, by email, to say the pots that were there were 'standard'. In other words, he didn't really help to 'sort' that out at all, and by that time we weren't about to spend a hour shopping in town for a pasta pot. Another thing I found surprising was the electric meter, which had to be fed with pound coins. Not even in Austria do the notoriously tourist-milking holiday-let owners ask you to pay for the electricity. But again, the owner here on Wight, who had seemed on the webpage description to be so willing to 'sort' things out, said that that was 'standard', and showed no interest in reconsidering his approach. In Cornwall we had rented a similar chalet where the same pound coin was recycled. In this letting in Sandown, which was bigger and more pleasant, the coin-box had a padlock. When you're paying about 90 pounds a night, it seems needlessly tight-fisted. What if you don't have a pound coin when you come home in the evening, after feeding all the Council parking machines on the Isle? Thirdly, the television with a built-on DVD player at the back was so cheap that when my children tried to stuff in a DVD, as children are wont to do, the DVD jammed and the television was 'destroyed'. We were away and were unaware thus had happened, as it happened on our last day. Photographs from the owner showed missing buttons from the side of the television that none of us even knew were there, as we had used the remote controls. The owner disputed this, and asserted that my children could not have used the remote to try to eject a DVD because, he said, there was no eject button on the remote. Yet the eject button on one of the two remotes was exactly what I had pressed to eject a DVD from the machine myself, earlier, so I knew it was there and I am very sure none of us even touched those tiny black buttons on the side of the tiny black television, which makes the photographs puzzling. As we were checking out of the chalet on the final morning I had looked carefully around the base of the television for any forgotten keys or wallets, etc., small stuff, and I would surely have seen the bright colours of the inner workings of the television as revealed in the photographs that showed the side-buttons torn away. Nonetheless, the owner lay a claim on my damage deposit of 100 pounds for a cheap television that cost 125 pounds and that was entirely unfit for purpose in a holiday letting geared to families. I would assert that damage equals disrespectful abuse of a letting, not respectful use of a television that gets 'destroyed' by an easily jammed DVD player from which the DVD cannot be extracted without resorting to a jackhammer. So here, I think, 'fitness for purpose' is key to judging this holiday letting. Better mattresses for the two kids, a big pot for family pasta or stews, and a more robust television would have made it perfect, for what we were paying. Not luxury -- just fitness for intended use. I translate legal contracts, and 'fitness for intended use' is pretty much a key phrase in all the liability clauses. So all in all, there are 'fitness for use' issues here that could use some looking into. If the owner is serious about sorting those out, as advertised, it will be a nice place.

We usually have short trips but this time we took time to stay. Every time our trips are a bit tried but this time our trip really made us to feel that we are at home, had a awesome stay at this location and everything was good and we wish would stayed a few days more. Next time will defo plan to have a long stay if possible. Only one suggestion if we would had Wi-Fi available that will be awesome.
