  • "Should have been a good place for us and the grandkids but one big problem."

    The accommodation is really good and the location was excellent particularly with the kids in mind - short walk to both the beach and nearby Sandham gardens. The big problem though is the NOISE factor. Behind the property is a hotel that had very loud live music on every night until around 11pm. I appreciate the owners can do nothing about the noise but I would have expected details of the potential noise to be included in the description of the property so that people can make a choice on whether this bothers them or not. Personally if I had known these facts when I made the booking I would never have booked - shame really because everything else was really good

    Thanks David for the feedback and we are happy to know your stay in the house was excellent. Property Owner

  • "It’s a very nice property with a short walk into Sandown and the beach, however there is a big problem with the noise."

    There is building work nearby starting from 8am, and then there is a hotel which adjoins the property patio. The hotel plays loud music during the day and every evening until around 11pm. During the summer with the windows open you can hear all the music and it’s not really possible to enjoy the patio area. If you have small children the noise will be an issue at bedtime. We have contacted the owner and asked them to let guests know about this, as it’s not clearly stated in the property details.

  • "Beautiful house."

    Immaculately clean. Great location. Please be aware if booking though it’s location means it’s very noisy every evening ( I assume only a seasonal issue and obviously no fault of the owner) The other side of the garden fence is a pub garden which has very loud live music every night until 11pm. This makes it very difficult to enjoy the garden in the evening and it could be a problem for those of you with young children as two of the bedrooms back onto it. Apart from the noisy pub property is a fantastic place to stay to enjoy the Isle of Wight.

    Tracey, we are excited you enjoyed the house and your holiday. We adhere to strict hygiene and cleanliness to make the house homely and a fantastic place to stay. See you soon and thank you. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous stay."

    Perfect for our party. Beautiful house. Just one hick up in that we had 1 twin bedded room when we wanted 3 doubles. We tried twice to get the bed configuration changed but no one responded to us. Not the end of the world I suppose.

    We are excited to know you had a fab time! Customer satisfaction is important to us. Thanks for your custom and see you soon. Property Owner

  • "The double bed listed was not a double bed but two single beds joined together."

    It was not what we expected. The beds were super uncomfortable! The mattresses need changing! Really bad night sleep and ended the holiday with back pain. Location was really good and the place was very clean. Good parking. Three toilets was very useful for the three couples staying. One was ensuite.

    Sorry Meena, you felt that way. All our mattresses are brand new and sourced from a reputable company. It is listed on website as queen size beds that can be split upon request so what do you expect? They are standard queen size zip and link beds. We try our best to satisfy every customer but its unfortunate you felt this way, thank you for your comments. It is a great location, very close to amenities. Cleanliness and strict hygiene is our priority. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at this extremely well equipped home."

    It was spotlessly clean and very welcoming on arrival. Rooms are all of generous proportions and it sits just a stone’s throw away from the beach. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could think of, (there is an internal cutlery/utensil drawer, maybe it was missed by previous guests) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to book again.

    Thanks so much for a great feedback Sandra. We would actually love to see you again soon. Guest satisfaction is paramount to us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "The property was lovely but there was insufficient eg: a motley collection of 6 wine glasses, insufficient plates and only 4 mugs for 6 people and an advocate mixture of cutlery."

    Labels hadn’t been removed from the appliances which clearly showed insufficient preparation for guests. What ruined our stay was arriving to a house which was 14 •c inside in December. The inefficient underfloor heating took 5 hours to get to 18•c and the first evening was spent in overcoats. We weren’t impressed by the inflexibility of Sykes and the owner to allow us an hour extra to leave despite the fact that there were no other bookings in the immediate future. Such a shame, a lovely property is being so mismanaged.

    Thank you Caroline for the feedback. Customer satisfaction is vital to us. There is a capacity for 6 people hence the necessary arrangements are always made to ensure high standards and guest comfort. Property Owner

  • "A great house in a great location."

    We could walk to the beach each morning, and there are lots of lovely cafes nearby. It was ideal for a family, especially with Sandham Gardens opposite.

    Thanks very much for a great feedback. The house is in perfect location and central to most amenities on the Island. It is important to us that our guests enjoy their stay and have memorable moments. Property Owner

  • "This is a delightful property and the location is perfect ."

    We had little to fault but our negative comments would be the towels were to small and only 1 per person so if you wanted to wash and dry hair it was difficult.Also there was no facility for food waste ( there was a food bin on the patio but it didn’t look like it had been used and there was no evidence of anyone putting out food bins . These are very minor negatives and we loved it so much we have booked again for next year

    We are delighted to know you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Property Owner

  • "An excellent new house, in an ideal location that is let down by the equipment and bedding."

    The house furnishings have an unfinished feel. We had a feeling that the property was rushed onto the market with little thought given to the needs of the guests. There was a significant shortage of cutlery for example and that which was provided was of poor quality. There was only one small sharp knife so there was no means to cut a loaf or carve a joint. There were no baking trays. In fact kitchen utensils were in very short supply. In fact we have stayed in many self catering properties over the years and this was the most inadequately equipped that we have experienced. A washing machine was fitted in the kitchen, but there was only one small collapsable airer, no dryer and no line outside, so a family would have found drying washing impossible. The furniture and bedding in the bedroom definitely need attention. The pillows were very poor quality and uncomfortable. The bedding was also pretty poor. When we stripped the bed, the duvet stuck to the cover, so either the cleaners had spilt liquid on it or it had not been changed after the previous guests, ugh! My wife struggled to find anywhere to satisfactorily store jewellery and there was no practical place to apply make up because there was no appropriate shelving in the bathrooms or the bedrooms. When we came to clean before we left we found a sweeping brush and a vacuum cleaner, but no dustpan. We had to sweep and then vacuum up the bits. In concluding we had an excellent holiday which was marred not by the property, which could have been lovely, but by the owners lack of attention to the needs of their guests.

    The property remains exactly as presented on the website. We deliver high standards of service with strict hygienic conditions. Guest comfort is our main interest. Property Owner

    It needed to be clear that the front door isnt beach facing, and there is no view of the sea from the windows.

Set within striking distance of a host of thrilling sights and attractions, 9 Breakwater Way is an idyllic base for both families and friends alike to explore the delights of this beautiful island.

A handy off-road parking space greets you upon arrival to the holiday development, ideal for leaving the car and venturing off to explore the surrounding area on foot.

Dust off your sandy toes and freshen up in the cloakroom as you enter into the property, before continuing through to the open-plan living space which is beautifully designed with a light and airy décor; featuring a contemporary kitchen fit with modern amenities and a stylish breakfast bar, along with a dining table with seating for four, and a plush sitting area, inviting you to put your feet up and let the television do the entertaining before preparing some tasty treats for the group.

In the evening, head outside to watch the sun set over the horizon as you soak in the fresh sea air, sharing a bottle of wine and indulging in some long overdue quality time together with the group.

As the evening grows darker, climb the stairs where you have the choice between three bedrooms, three super-king-size rooms, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room, all beautifully-appointed with a light and homely décor, and offering a zip/link feature for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Completing the property is the contemporary family bathroom, boasting a bath with an overhead shower, so you can enjoy a solace escape from the main area of the house with a leisurely soak, or rinse away the day.

Take the short stroll from the holiday home to the nearby Sandown beach, stretching six miles of beautiful golden sand along the picturesque coastline, and enjoy a revitalizing dip in the waters of the English Channel, or thrill-seekers can head to Bayside Beach Hire to partake in stand-up paddleboarding.

After working up an appetite, indulge in a bite to eat at the beachfront café, The Sundial, serving up delicious comfort food, and if you time it right, you might even be lucky enough to treat yourself to a cocktail during happy hour!

Browse the souvenir shops lining the esplanade for a keepsake to take home, or head to the pier and test your chances on the penny slots or battle the kids with a game of crazy golf.
