We stayed in the property first as a group of friends prior to my wedding, and then in the final week for my honeymoon. It could not have been better - the location was great, with Shanklin easily accessible, ample parking and a bus stop close by. The house felt brand new and could not have been cleaner - bedrooms, bathrooms and the kitchen had everything we could possibly have wanted. We are also very thankful to the owners for the welcome card and milk in the fridge, as well as the quick and friendly service to replace bedding and towels. The only suggestions I would have are that there w...more
We have had a fantastic week at Highlands. We booked Apartments 2, 3 and 4 and they were all excellent with the bonus of having our own private entrance door for all three. The apartments were clean with everything you could need for your stay. Excellent location for Shanklin and the beach. View of the beach from Apartment 4 was amazing. I would definitely book again and would recommend these apartments if staying with friends or family.
We stayed here a few weeks ago, liked it so much, we booked another week. It was an ideal location for us, right in the heart of Cowes. The view from the balcony across the Solent was superb! The accommodation was excellent with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Highly recommended.
I was delighted with the accommodation and would most definitely stay again. I am returning in three years and would choose this flat again.
We simply love Pine Ridge. There is plenty of space and lots to entertain the kids. We walked down to the lighthouse again and found a cafe on the front. The Buddle Inn is very close, although we just made use of the well equipped kitchen. The weather was fantastic too! I am sure this will not be our final visit to Pine Ridge.
Our holiday visit to 12 Shanklin Manor was the result of a recommendation from our daughter. We expected it to be OK but it was so much better than that. Our only problem was with the sound/tv system where we were unable to get tv sound and subtitles, but this was very quickly sorted for us. Overall an excellent base for our holiday.
We had a lovely stay at Littlestairs. The position is stunning with panoramic views and ideally situated right next to the coastal path. Easy to park and situated in a quiet road but also with easy walking access to the centre of Shanklin. The house is extremely spacious and comfortable. The only difficulty we experienced was the steep outside front step to get to the front door. Two of our party have slight mobility issues and found this step difficult to climb up. A rail or a ramp would have been of great benefit. We would definitely return in the future.
The on-suite in the double bedroom needs a deep clean the tile grouting is black in places, the shower door hinges need adjusting, the tiled floor has grimy tiles, the toilet needs a deep clean. The rest of the apartment was ok and clean. The towel rail needs a method to heat it when the central heating is not working, ( and it was isolated so that it wasn't available which is unacceptable in a luxury apartment), and the towels stop damp at this time of year.
Lovely cottage ideal location to visiting all of the island with car..One small downside there is no path near cottage to walk anywhere to so have to use car. There is a bus stop a few yards up or down road but bit dangerous as no path to either.
Cosy bungalow in great location close to train and shops. Clean and quiet. We had everything we needed.
There was 7 of us staying at Pier Top for the week and there was plenty of room for us all. It was a lovely place with everything you needed and more it was very comfortable with the little extra touches making it feel like home from home. Myself and my husband used the bedsette in the front room which was very comfortable and easy to put up and down and the big chest to keep all the bedding in was great as it was all at hand. The location was ideal as we were a stone's throw away from the shops and the seafront. The only thing we were a bit disappointed with was the garden and the decking ...more
This was a neat and comfortable property in a good location. The owner was friendly and helpful. Lovely and quiet at night, though the cockerels do give an early wake-up call!
We stayed here for a week in september 2018. there was 5 adults & 3 children age 13,7 & 3. We love the isle of wight and have been coming here for aound 40+ years. we found this house online and are so pleased we did. it is in an excellent location in Ryde within easy walking distance of the shops, seafront, beaches, swimming pool etc. The weather was fabulous which always helps. The back garden is an excellent size & our children loved playing in it. there is plenty of seating & handy washing line. The kitchen is very well equipped with usual white goods, good cooker, microwave,toaster etc....more
So pleased with our stay.Very 50's feel, kept expecting my parents to walk through the door and i now have this overwhelming urge to read Enid Blyton.Only got home on Saturday and rebooked for next year this morning,Tuesday.Says it all.
apart from having to find the chalet looking fora sign with tomhill briary was not easy. plus the chalet had fleas and my dogs were ridden with them ,also i was bitten on ankles.and for my wife who is disabled a long walk to ;parking.and as i mentioned in my email 10 days is ridiculous time to wait for refund.
An excellent well equipped comfortable house. Lovely garden and balcony. Good central point for walking and relaxation. Have stayed a couple of times now with my walking group and all enjoyed their stay.
Our fifth stay in Trinity View and we loved it as much as ever. The house is clean and comfortable and spacious enough for me to holiday with all my extended family. My seven grandchildren enjoy having their own 'playroom' (the snug); it is really useful to have so many shower and bathrooms - no one ever has to wait and that means we are all ready to go out much more quickly than if we had to queue for bathrooms; the kitchen is huge, which means that three or four people can all be preparing meals or sandwiches at the same time, and we really appreciated the new kitchen equipment this year, es...more
Another great stay. Just a shame about the weather. The new Indian restaurant was lovely we were made to feel very special
It would have been helpful to have had space in the cupboards for our own groceries instead of them filled with other peoples stuff. Fridge and microwave need replacing. The chalet is ideal for families with young children as they can play safely outside.
We were all very pleased with our stay at Willow House and shall return !! Nick , Clive and Charlotte
The apartment was well appointed, clean and well equipped, with sea views from most angles. The bonus was the terrace, ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine. Within walking distance of the old village of Shanklin with its various restaurants and cafes.
Very big accommodation bedrooms good size beds very comfortable love the patio from kitchen nice to sit early morning Close to village , very handy not having to drive there , loads of eating places and close to sea front , nice walk . I come to the island every year this year was nice because we had loads of room in the house and was not bumping in to each other . Look forward to next year Thank you The service from home from home was excellent to they also arrange the ferry crossing too many thanks
Very disappointed with this chalet for the price,my son had one on the same site very modern.deluxe compared to ours a £100 cheaper.nothing matching cups cutlery glasses .bath so old badly stained, no hair dryer cobwebs. Infested with ants which they did respond to .don't go for no 67.
This was the second year we’ve rented Norwood House, purely for its location - we have family who live just up the road. The house itself is well maintained although, as last year, I spotted a few cobwebs here and there, suggesting the cleaning could be a little more thorough. After a couple of days we had cause to raise an issue with the owners and were impressed when somebody arrived to address this within a couple of hours of our reporting it. The main downside of the location is the lack of WiFi signal - we struggled with phones, the internet and even the TV. No more was this evident than ...more
The property should not be advertised with a parking space, as it is not suitable for purpose. It is inaccessible, due to its slightly hilly position on the side of a very narrow lane and if by luck you were able to get onto it you would not be able to open your car doors. Luckily landlord agreed to cover parking charges in council car park which is a few metres away. The garden is also not as described in the advert, it is overgrown, and on our arrival was strewn with plastic rubbish, broken glass and metal. A health hazard for a 7 year old child. The management company did however organis...more
Old fashioned, small place, good for a week. Fantastic location, loads to do. Full review on trip ad.
To be honest it was a bit of a shock when we arrived. It looks like a run down Butlins site.. Chalet was ok but found a few issues as we went along. Kitchen units were uneven and some doors were loose. Fridge door jammed on floor, not level. Door to Main bedroom kept jumping off runner. Ample cutlery and plates etc. Mattress on bunk bed, very lumpy, said my Daughter. Location very good , cant beat cliff views. Walk to shops ok, needed that anyway. Overall 7/10..
