  • "Cosy, well equipped and homely place to stay."

    Everything you need was provided. Very comfortable beds. Only noise was birdsongs. Bembridge is a great village as a base on the island. Recommend a visit to The Best Dressed Crab. And a trip to Havenstreet for the steam trains.

    We have stayed before in September 2020 and we’re looking forward to Christmas 2020, which sadly didn’t happen. Christmas 2021 certainly made up for it! Thank You.

    Not good if they are up late and you want an early night.

  • "Lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet location with local shops a few mins walk away, and lots of paths and bridle ways to explore ."

    Kitchen well equipped , even for those who want to do some proper cooking. Spotlessly clean and tidy with comfortable beds and sofas. Outdoor lawn with table and chairs to enjoy a peaceful sit down after long day sightseeing. Ideal location for exploring Bembridge and the rest of the island. Would definitely stay again if returning to the IOW

    Great to have use of the private garden and the setting was lovely. The shops, restaurants and bars in Bembridge are just a short walk away. Great base and easy to explore the rest of the island.

  • "Excellent flat, incredibly well supplied with everything you could need."

    Unfortunately we found the upstairs neighbours very disruptive (they seemed to enjoy a 1am stroll around the apartment every night), and were disappointed in the beach - the "wonderful sands" are at least a 20minute walk from the house, the immediate beach is purely rock pools. However, we did have a lovely holiday despite having to drive more frequently than we were hoping to.

  • "The Nab house was in a great location , a couple of minutes walk to the beach and 20 minutes Easy safe pavement walk to the village ."

    The village has everything you need - local shops Of butcher , Baker , fishmonger and organic fruit shop and great places to eat too . We went to Fox’s , No 8 cafe , Angel in the kitchen , the bakery coffee shop , the Propellor Inn and the Duver Cafe , all are great local Business offering excellent food . The flat was extremely clean with extra precautions for Covid . It is very well equipped ( we made pizza when we were there and the kitchen even had a rolling pin and weighing scales !) and it’s an excellent layout for sharing family time together as the living accommodation is one large open plan room . We were also blessed with great weather so we were able to sit in the sun in the garden and we were able to maximise walking and exploring the coastline which was lovely . The owner was friendly and helpful , we had a great time and are highly likely to return

  • "Wow! What a gorgeous, well equipped and thought out apartment in a fantastic idyllic location."

    This trip was over the May bank holiday at the beginning of the month and although the weather was far from hot it was dry and sunny throughout our stay. Our party consisted of myself, my two young daughters (4 & 1) and my Mother. I happened to also celebrate a birthday whilst staying here. The décor in this apartment is fabulous, homely and welcoming. The beds are super comfy and spacious. Parking is ample and convenient. We did a lot of driving to and from different areas of the island over our stay so didn't really get to spend much time exploring Bembridge, but what we saw of it looked lovely. The nearby beach (very close walking distance) by the Lifeboat station was great for rock pooling when the tide was out. My Mother used to holiday on the IOW when younger and spent her honeymoon there so this apartment was a great base to explore the Island and reminisce about times gone by. We would definitely recommend and if ever back on the Island we would definitely stay here again. Big thank you to the host for all the little personal touches upon arrival too (i.e. milk in fridge, tea bags, biscuits). It made our stay even sweeter and was greatly appreciated.

    It’s location along a quiet lane 1 row back from the sea is perfect for a stroll along the beach, popping to the local shop and a great base to explore the island from your car. The property itself has that lovely home from home feel. It’s extremely comfortable, clean, safe, has everything you need and more. The furnishings are very tasteful. Bedding and towels lovely and soft. Just really really nice. Would love to stay here again sometime and wish I could pick it up and put it in every place we visit. Family of 4.

  • "We were delighted to find that our holiday flat, in a lovely old house, was only a 5 minute walk from the beach and we could see the sea from our bedroom window."

    The Bembridge Lifeboat Station and the RNLI shop were on our doorstep and we were lucky enough to watch a practice launch of both the inshore inflatable and the large lifeboat which was very exciting! Bembridge also surprised us by having all sorts of quaint shops and a cafe serving delicious homemade cakes. Also, a stroll along the beach revealed the Beach Hut Cafe literally on the shore where we enjoyed a glass of wine and another lovely desert. To reach our holiday home, the ferry crossings were another fun part of our holiday.

  • "Without doubt one of the nicest rental properties we've ever had the pleasure to stay in."

    The owner has thought of everything with lots of lovely finishing touches - Easter treats for the kids, a welcome chocolate cake, huge fluffy towels, dressing gowns and slippers, coffee sachets, ample toilet rolls, soap, coffee pods and sachets. The apartment is perfectly laid out for a sociable family holiday with a large open plan kitchen, diner and lounge. The large dining table was the perfect hub for family games and meals over the wet weekend. The location of the apartment is also perfect. Within walking distance of the beach, the lifeboat station, Co-op and local pubs. As a busy working mum with two young boys, I've never been a big fan of self catering holidays, but 4 Nab House has convinced me that self catering holidays can be relaxing and indulgent. Within a few hours of arriving I was online checking availability for the apartment over the summer holidays! Highly recommended.

  • "We have stayed in many holiday properties over the years and it is fair to say that this one was by far and away the best ever."

    It is almost impossible to know where to start,,,, So much care and thought had been put in to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Silly little things such as many extra toilet rolls, extra hand wash and large fluffy towels. Big differences such as a beautiful welcome pack, a really well equipped utility cupboard, high end kitchen appliances and to cap it all, a Smart TV, all made such a difference to how we felt about the accommodation. The comfortable mattresses, beautiful bed linen, and sumptuous sofas, a large kitchen table with enough glasses, plates etc to be able to entertain if desired, all made us feel that Justine actually cared about her guests and wanted them to enjoy their stay and want for nothing. The accommodation was extremely tastefully decorated and altogether perfect. Other property owners could learn a lot from Justine. I would like to say to all other owners, to think about doing the same. When owners leave only one partly used toilet roll, a sliver of hand soap, minimum equipment, cheap kitchen equipment and cheap beds and bedding, and worst of all, .... Freeview TV, (aarrgghh!!) it immediately makes the guest feel that profit is their sole value. Of course you have to make a profit, but you also have to show that the care of your guests is important and these things make a huge difference. Justine has got this all right and we thank her for it all. We had a truly wonderful stay. We would like to also thank Sykes. You were a great and so easy to use. Lovely web site and excellent customer care. I would however ask you to encourage all your owners to follow Justine and to show that they really care about the comfort of their guests. Abandon the awful cheap Freeview TVs, and spend a little extra on a Smart TV. It makes a huge difference! Annette & Robert Culshaw

Fantastic location two minutes walk from the sea front for coastal walks. The owner Justine was very helpful and welcoming! Thanks for a great holiday.

About the location


Ryde 7 miles; Newport 11 miles; Cowes 16 miles; Yarmouth 20 miles.

Bembridge sits on the most eastern point of the Isle of Wight, and it is claimed to be the biggest village in England. Bembridge used to be an island in its own right, and until the Victorian era, was a collection of wooden huts and farmhouses, hence Bembridge remains somewhat detached from the rest of the island even today, which adds to its charm. Bembridge is considered to be one of the most upmarket areas on the island and offers a surprisingly busy intertidal sheltered harbour, which is always full of pleasure crafts and fishing boats providing a constant flow of traffic to and from The Solent. From the harbour you will find quiet beaches consisting of sand and pebbles, perfect for swimming, beachcombing and crabbing and in high winds you will see plenty of kite surfing activity. As you walk along Bembridge beach, you will discover the lifeboat station, cafes and the famous Crab & Lobster Inn, as well as the magnificent Culver Cliffs as your backdrop. The village centre offers a good range of small shops, with its award-winning butcher's and 'The Best Dressed Crab in Town' which is situated in Bembridge harbour, you can also sample local produce from the greengrocer's, visit the art gallery and much more; in fact everything you should need while holidaying here.
