  • "The first thing to greet us on the stairs was a dead plant!"

    ! Mr Brady's introduction was brief and when I asked if the fridge had been mended or replaced,(as seen in the reviews) he said people want too much these days, like a zip wire to the beach!!! ( Not the best of welcomes).We have been to many Sykes accommodation and often have a great welcome + scones and cream, wine eof the fridge had no door! It still doesn't. Nor is there a shelf over the crisper drawer. The other comment by several visitors was the kitchen hot tap "dribbled" and took a long time to fill the bowl. Still the same.The hot tap in the bathroom "swivels" and needs tightening. Also comments re the veluxs having cobwebs they have not been cleaned. Out of 7 velux blinds only 2 could be pull down, the others were broken. A previous visitor suggested black out blinds in the bedrooms, we were awake about 6am because of the light. The microwave, toaster and kettle had stickers to say they were checked in July 2019, it is obvious they have not been tested recently. How often does a Skyes representatives visit to check, as the photos on your website are out of date. Reading the comments in the visitors book and web reviews that the property is tired. the lockdowns would have been a perfect time to refresh it. Or is it an attitude of the landlord that he "can't be bothered"? I think he may be relying on the beautiful location, the beach and easy reach for many lovely attractions to get visitors. At the price charged we expect the accommodation to be top quality as previous experiences. We did enjoy our week, but the comments above frustrated us.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The fridge has now been replaced and all of the issues raised have now been rectified. Property Owner

  • "The location was fabulous with superb views across the Solent."

    The apartment was cosy and warm, especially given the wet and windy weather. The furnishings and fittings were adequate although some of them were dated (fridge had a broken door and the ice compartment had no door at all, the crockery and cutlery were quite basic, the cooker was quite elderly). The hot tap in the kitchen was completely inadequate which made washing up quite a chore. The lighting in the living room was quite dingy so it was difficult to find a place with enough light to read in the evenings. Several of the blinds on the Velux windows were broken so could not be closed and in the bedrooms we could have done with blackout blinds on the Velux windows - I could imagine that in the height of summer, when it is light by 4.30 a.m., it would be very frustrating to have no blackout at the windows. Our overall impression was that Sail Loft was a sweet little property for anyone wanting an interestingly different quiet place to stay in the Yarmouth area, but it could do with an update and a refresh of the decorations. We did enjoy our week but wonder whether it was maybe a little over-priced.

  • "The automated arrival departure messages are not effective."

    We were sent one for arrival and selected 3pm.when we got there the owner wasn't there and clearly not expecting us so we had to ring him and wait for thirty minutes. With the departure we selected 10am abs this was refused so we asked when we could leave and received no answer. In the end we left at 10 and there was no one there to give the key to. Highly unsatisfactory system.

  • "Light shades were dusty, Tv reception very poor, Velux roof light glass needs cleaning and 1 of the roof light blinds was broken and dangling down and the bathroom fan was not working."

    A washing machine would be an excellent commodity to the apartment. In general the above statements are really only minor, the apartment just needs a bit of T L C. I would definitely return to the property and would certainly recommend it to others. Mr D T W Nuneaton

  • "The accommodation was as described but the hot water system and electric shower were "tired" and needed some updating or attention ."

    Location was excellent and very clean. Maybe wifi would be a good addition for next season .

  • "We had a wonderful week's stay in Sail Loft."

    The location is perfect, over looking the sea. My 5 year old son loved watching the ferries and sailing boats. The facilities are good but basic. An updated television with DVD player would be good, especially for families staying with children. However, this is only a minor point and we have already booked again for next year, which will be our third stay. It is a great place to base yourself to explore the island.

Boathouse Apartments

Yarmouth 0.75 miles.

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.
