Well situated for exploring Sandown, Ventnor and Shanklin (all just a short car ride away). Cottage has most of what you need for a nice quiet break although spiral stairs are fairly narrow they are perfectly usable with care. Met on day of arrival by the owners mother, a really friendly and lovely lady. Huge welcome pack which was really appreciated. Cottage has wi-fi which was a bonus. Clean and comfortable throughout although the downstairs bathroom might not suit some people was not a problem for us. Would return sometime in the future.
You won’t be disappointed. They have thought of everything. Immaculate condition and everything you could possibly need they have it.
Absolutely loved this cottage. Impeccable cleanliness. Very comfortable with lovely countryside views. Very dark at night to assist sleep. Very quiet except for the bleating of the sheep opposite and the occasional trekker hiking along the bridleway outside. Lovely to sit in the walled garden to have a coffee. Very well furnished and equipped with a useful welcome pack. If weather is bad, tele reception can be intermittent but who cares when you can look outside at the lovely surroundings. On the coastal path if you like walking/cycling. I would highly recommend.
Lovely property with ample space for 6 adults and 4 children. We all fitted in well with lots space for the children including the conservatory for them to watch Tv and play with their toys. Bedrooms all well positioned for us too. Tennis courts and basketball ring were a big hit. A couple of things could have been better, cooking pans and dishes needed a wash before use. Welcome pack could have been more “welcoming” and the provision of more tea towels and toilet rolls. However, overall a lovely break and property. Would like to go again in summer months when pool in use.
Squirrel’s Nest was spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm. On the two sunny days that we had, sitting outside in the small courtyard was a pleasure - secluded and sheltered. The property was well supplied with leaflets about various I o W attractions, many of which we visited. With its central location you are never from anywhere on the island though the roads can be slow going at times! The owners, who live next door were friendly and helpful and not in the least intrusive. We cannot recommend this property highly enough.
Beautiful cottage, very well equipped Lovely large rooms but cosy Staircase would not suit everyone as it is steep and winds round Although dog friendly the garden is not secure This is a semi detached property and had I realised I would not have booked, preferring a detached property Overall a lovely cottage and quiet location
We had an amazing couple of nights at Sandy Shores. Everything was incredibly clean. Directions very easy to find and we loved the location being right by the beachfront. The open plan kitchen/diner/lounge was great. Cooking dinner, and preparing food on holiday is much more bearable when you can see the sea! I’m sure we will definitely be back, thanks for a great stay.
A very comfortable stay at a very well appointed bungalow.The owner was very welcoming and the food /drink left for our use was very welcome .A very quiet location which was appreciated.
We had a wonderful holiday at Span Farm. We were a large multi generational family group staying across the main farmhouse, Garden Cottage and Well Cottage, and there was plenty of room for all of us, inside and out. Comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of living space made it the perfect location for us. The farmhouse is charming. It feels very secluded with some lovely walks straight from the door and yet is only a short drive from Ventnor with its beach and cafes. The owner was communicative and helpful in the run up to our stay, and we really appreciated the thoughtful ...more
Apartment brilliant, location brilliant Pub downstairs only had real ale so not to our taste. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
Another great holiday at St Rhadagunds, the house is a home from home always clean and comfortable and Henry is always so helpful x
We had stayed in the next door cottage before and knew it was in the most wonderful, quiet location at the end of a lane with many wonderful walks starting from the front door. However 1 Manor Farm Cottage was so comfortable, cozy and well provided that it was on a different level. Everything had been thought of from a comprehensive welcome basket for the humans to delicious dog treats and even spare dog beds. The whole house was immaculately presented and a joy to stay in. We’d love to holiday there again and the dogs can’t wait to go back.
The property was absolutely stunning, very high spec and luxurious. Everything you could ever need was thought of and provided, right down to sandwich bags and washing liquid! An excellent location in the heart of Godshill and a very short walk to the main attraction of the model village. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it. Our son didn’t want to leave to come home!
This is a perfect holiday location. The only thing that lets this house down is one set of keys. There were 3 groups staying so we had to use lockbox which isn’t ideal at the back of the house when using the front door! If another set of keys can’t be provided then a second lock box at the front would be a big help. Other that this we had a fantastic break. Thank you.
We stayed for 7 days in May with a baby. The property is lovely and spacious and decorated to a high standard. The garden was perfect for our dog and good WiFi connectivity. Would def stay again.
We had a fantastic week at Horizon House. All excellent and very comfy beds. Loved the pac man machine! Thank you
9 of us and our dog stayed here. Having so many ensuites was a game changer for getting sorted for days out etc. The location was perfect for days out, walks, peace and quiet. The BBQ is nothing to write home about. We were planing to use it but it was very basic and not large enough to use for 9 of us. There were some damaged fittings when we arrived and we had to find the knack to closing the main oven door, which we could close properly at first. The rear garden is spacious. All in all we had a lovely stay and would recommend the house to family groups.
A lovely well located apartment in Sandown- a few steep hills if you have mobility issues or small kids but there are ways around it. The apartment is beautifully furnished and mostly well equipped depending on your needs . It was one of the cleanest I’ve stayed in -our only criticism is the kitchen/lounge floor was dirty on arrival -cleaners mop was pretty grubby so probably not up to the job ! And the shower in the main bedroom was not draining away very well at all. Island holidays responded very quickly to a freezer breakdown and we cannot fault the service they gave us, although the abov...more
Lovely modern spacious apartment, well equipped, everything you need for a holiday. Great views of The Bay! Good to have Wi Fi. Found no problem parking our car in the secure parking space. HOWEVER….. On arrival unpleasant smell in the apartment the cause of this was dead roses in a vase in the kitchen. These had been there a while as the water had evaporated. Out of date carton of milk in fridge. Not a good welcome pack! Had problems setting up the TV in lounge area, phoned the out of office phone number, NO REPLY. In the end sorted the problem ourselves, although TV is affected by weather, ...more
Pilot view is a lovely place to stay. It’s a very light & airy place. Only a short walk to the beach & yards from the pub. It’s equipped to a good standard & caters for everything you may need & more. There is plenty of space so you’re not falling over each other. The outside court yard is great for relaxing in at early evening & safe & secure for dogs. There is only a slight criticism & that is there isn’t anywhere to put your toiletries in the en-suite & bathroom & the barbecue needs to be replaced as it’s no longer fit for purpose.
Lovely spacious apartment with everything you could possibly need. Great location. Shannan at the office was fantastic and very helpful. Would recommend to family and friends.
Fantastic location - very private with barely any walkers due to the location (cannot access by car). We loved this but be prepared to carry luggage/food shopping up and down the footpath! Great living space and comfortable for everyone. Kitchen hob and oven is wonderful to use (no corkscrew we found out, luckily we had one!). Very generous welcome package of prosecco, butter, bread and OJ! Henry the caretaker was fantastic, and on hand via whatsapp for anything that was needed. Wifi was very good if you are working there.
This is a lovely house with a great garden in a residential area. It is great for an extended family holiday. The downstairs bedroom (which is a small double room and doesn’t have any wardrobes but is pleasant and has doors opening on to the terrace) is next to a shower room and there are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs. The kitchen is well equipped with large pans, plenty of utensils and plates/cutlery (although there are not many larger drinking glasses and no jug for water) and the fridge has an ice machine and water feature in the door. There is a well equipped utility room a...more
Had a wonderful stay at colonels apartment sandown, very very clean, wonderful sea view, very quite, lovely location, will definitely stay in this apartment again .
Had a lovely time. The flat is very comfortable and has a lot of nice touches to make it feel like you are at home. It is very convenient to everything, beach walks, cafes, bus, groceries. It has everything you need to have a very enjoyable stay.
Super house, facilities & location. Just need a few more hangers in the wardrobes, but that's it. All in all we had a great time and thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house x
A great place for a week with the kids. The lodge is well appointed, the owners are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the facilities on site
Honest review but definitely recommended stay. We are a family with 2 kids under 4 and a Golden Retriever. We were looking for an open plan house where we could be comfortable if the weather wasn’t good. The house is a beautifully done barn conversion with a very open plan downstairs area. The barn house an enclosed outside area safe for dogs and kids. Inside it has been decorated very nice and it has all you need. The area is very close to pretty much all the attractions on that side of the Island and has a great variety of walks/bridle ways close by. The pub opposite offers incredible food....more
We loved our week at Briar Bank, complete with two kids (aged 9 & 6) and a dog. The house was comfortable, clean and well-equipped with huge rooms and new furniture. It was well-situated, minutes from useful shops - Co-Op, butcher, bakery, etc. all selling local produce - and with easy access to the old village and beach. The nearest steps down to the beach next to the lift were closed but it wasn't very far to walk around by Shanklin Chine. Loads to do down on the beach - Shanklin Chine worth a daytime and evening visit and the kids loved the crazy golf, Jurassic Jim's, fish & chips and ice-c...more
Thank you for our wonderful stay at Middle Lodge in Ryde for the eight of us, 5 adults and 3 children. The location is great 4 minutes from the beach and children’s playground nearby. We could walk to different places to eat and to also walk to Ryde High Street. The house is all we could have asked for with space for the eight of us and a lovely enclosed garden for the children. The garden also provided entertainment for the children including red squirrel and bird sightings. The house was well equipped in particular the kitchen which included washing and cleaning materials. We hope t...more
The house is very spacious and has all you could wish for in the kitchen /lounge/garden and all en-suite bedrooms great and a fabulous sunny balcony but there is a huge problem as there are no curtains in any of the bedrooms roller blinds are just not enough when the sun comes up at 5 in the morning everyone is awake and by the end of the week none of us had had a good nights sleep if this was fixed we would definitely come back and recommend it to others also the master bedroom bathroom did not have a shower and no coverings at all at the windows so no one stayed in that room at all which is ...more
What a wonderful cottage. Very clean and in a perfect location. Perfect for a week away with the dogs. Brilliant kitchen and all the amenities we needed. Very comfortable beds and beautiful decor. Would definitely recommend!
Clean and picturesque walking along the little bridge to get to the cottage. Good short stay place for a family
The property has a super location near the beach. The garden and the hot tub are perfect for a family. However, I would say the property (with upstairs and downstairs) as a whole is not suitable for two separate families. The floorboards and thin walls make it incredibly noisy and unbearable at times as the family above us had a toddler who ran around a lot and a baby that cried all night. We even considered leaving early but in the end managed with ear plugs for at least the night part. Obviously this is not the fault of the family above but rather an issue with the structure or the property...more
