  • "Perfect for a quite get away"

  • "This is our third stay in the Boathouse apartments, first time in No 3."

    The property itself was ideal but there were various unsatisfactory features: Tiling on bathroom floor needs replacing as is worn and is not hygienic. Shower controls need securing/renewing and pressure needs improving. Electric towel rail is loose. Cooker controls have worn away so you cannot read the temperature setting. Duvet was thin and worn and pillows very flat. Windows bedroom needs attention ... condensation and dirty windowsill. DVD very noisy - needs upgrading as it is nice to use this if weather is bad. Needs to be highlighted that the electricity for the property runs on meter. Basic condiments would be nice as there was not even salt and pepper. The property itself is ideally located and is cosy but these enhancements would have immensely improved our stay.

  • "The accommodation was pretty basic although it’s position was superb - situated right on the beach."

    We holidayed in February so knew it was going cold outside but the heating inside was inadequate plus it there was an electric meter which required £1 coins. If this was in the spec, I did not read it before arrival. In addition to the above the duvets were thin. As said this cottage was in a lovely location, with basic accommodation and inadequate heating appliances. I am sure it would be a fantastic place to stay in the summer.

  • "Brilliantly situated right on the pebble beach, note you cannot bathe, too dangerous."

    Property has everything you need. 20 mins walk into town but you have the excellent Boathouse cafe 50 yards away, no evenings or Tuesdays. John (owner) is most helpful, girls in cafe too, everyone on the island is so friendly, and most of all for us, dog friendly. Booked again for next year. You cannot go wrong here.

  • "Fabulous location and laidback pleasant host."

    The kitchen and lounge furniture could do with a bit of updating but it did not detract from our holiday.

  • "Absolutely idyllic."

    . couldn’t be closer to the beach and walks in abundance in every direction and fishing if you fancy almost from your patio !! Close to amenities the property is well equipped, spacious, comfortable and has the added bonus of help getting to sleep with the sounds of the sea ! The sunset views are memorable and although the weather wasn’t the best it didn’t detract. Most that have visited express their wish to return... ditto that

    Apartment is warm and dry with all you need for a great break. Close to Yarmouth, right on the seafront, great walks very close by and a fab cafe at the other end of the block. What more could you want?!

  • "The location is superb with wonderful views of the Solent and so close to an outstanding cafe staffed by lovely people."

    The rental is very well equipped and comfortable. The water pressure is good in the kitchen but pathetic in the bathroom rendering the shower next to useless. TV reception is sometimes nonexistent. These problems should not be met when paying what is not a budget rent,they are spoiling the experience and could easily solved with a little more investment. This holiday rental could be so much better if these problems did not exist - a shame. Rob Young Swanmore. Hants

  • "Great location: seafront and tranquil."

    Helpful owner. Great place to start walks from and plenty to see nearby. Lack of power in the shower and also lack of washing machine make it harder for longer holidays. Also coin electricity meter a bit tedious; would be better to pay extra and include electricity use in the price.

Boathouse Apartments

Yarmouth 0.75 miles. Constructed on the site of a former boathouse, these seven Yarmouth self-catering apartments are in an enviable, idyllic location, situated on the shingle beach and coastal path, close to Fort Victoria Country Park, just to the west of the attractive harbour town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Renovated to a good standard, many of these Yarmouth self-catering apartments have sensational sea views, plus all have access to a private slipway for launching your own boat. Adjacent to these Yarmouth self-catering apartments is a licensed cafe, where you can sit out and eat alfresco. Yarmouth has lovely narrow streets to explore, and many shops and inns to enjoy, plus a visit to Henry VIII’s castle is essential. The highlights of the rest of the island, such as Tennyson Down, the beaches at Colwell and Totland bays and the towns of Newport and Ryde are all easily accessible. A great Yarmouth self-catering base looking out to an ever-changing seascape.

About the location


Newport 12 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

The attractive seaside town of Yarmouth is the oldest town on the Isle of Wight, and its busy harbour is a haven for all kinds of watercraft, with the terminal used for regular mainland ferry crossings to Lymington. Yarmouth’s narrow streets are home to an attractive array of shops and inns, whilst a visit to Henry VIII’s castle is not to be missed. There's great cycling (and a cycle hire shop) and walking to be had along the coastal path. Why not take an energetic stroll at the nearby Tennyson Down and Headon Warren. Sandhard beach is 15 minutes' walk away, with Colwell Bay with its sandy beach and amenities for the family 7 minutes away by car. Yarmouth's pier and sailing club jetty is another good spot for crabbing. Four miles away is Compton Bay, famous for dinosaur remains; head there at low tide and see if you can find the two enormous three-toed feet. West Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Yarmouth is an ideal base from which to explore this wonderful island.
