Guest Reviews


    • “An excellent place to stay!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The place is wonderfully situated, overlooking the sparkling sea above the roofs of houses lower down the hill, enjoying the sun on the patio during the day, surrounded by flowers in the owners' lovely and well-kept garden. They are charming and helpful people, very concerned about their guests and friendly and sympathetic to talk with. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well-furnished in harmonious colours, with lovely design touches in pictures and decorations. So nice to find a decanter of port and a pack of chocolates as a welcome gift! And so many books, DVDs and music CDs to enjoy if you fancy a day relaxing there, perhaps flopped on the patio's sun loungers, rather than touring. A place to return to!”

    • “Lovely terrace and view”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We spent seven days in the studio deck apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you Re particularly tall a couple of the doors are a bit low but that was not a problem for us. There was enough room for all our needs and the apartment was clean and had nice extra touches such as cereal, milk, tea etc to start off your visit and bathrobes and slippers provided. The decked area is ideal to sit out and enjoy the view. A BBQ is provided on he decked area. The owners live above the deck studio and they have another flat for rent above their property but we never felt overlooked at all as they were completely unobtrusive. The owners are very polite and friendly and happy to be approached if you do need any help or advice. There is plenty to do on the IOW and I would recommend this property. The only point that I would mention is that it is a very steep walk up/down hill to Ventnor.”

    • “A great Pl,ace to Stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The apartment is lovely. It is well equipped (even a telescope for watching shipping in the middle of the English Channel) and the bed is extremely comfortable. There is a nice secluded terrace for warm days. I would reccommend it to anyone. As a bonus the owners (who live above)are friendly and helpful but unless you want to ask for (or need) anything they stay out of sight - absolutely perfect.”

    • “Beautiful sea views from inside and outside the property!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here over easter for 3 nights. The outside decking area is a real highlight, with sun loungers, deck chairs and a table to eat al-fresco if the weather allows. Inside, the property is beautifully decked out. It is cosy but with ample space - though beware the ceilings are quite low and you need to duck to enter the main door. There are lots of lovely touches, including breakfast goodies provided for the first day. Water hot, reasonable Wi-fi, and Sky TV available too. The owners live upstairs, and are available if you have any queriers, but do not disturb your stay in any way. Ventnor itself is a great location. Very picturesque Victorian seaside town built on steep hill. There is so much to explore nearby and around the Isle of Wight. You won't be bored!”

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The sandy and fine shingle beaches provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, whilst the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and seafood. A good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round.
