  • "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

  • "The ad needed to be clearer that the site is still being worked on."

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

    We ended up booking very close to the date we wanted to start our stay at the property and the Sykes team were all very helpful and patient to ensure we we were confident in our booking.

The property

Perfectly positioned a stone's throw away from the stunning beach of the seaside resort of Sandown, on the Isle of Wight, rests this contemporary holiday home, 9 Breakwater Way.

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.

Lace up your walking boots and trek the two-mile costal path from Sandown to the popular seaside resort of Shanklin, taking in the panoramic views across the stunning water as you travel along the clifftops, stopping off for an ice cream at Toppings Ice Cream Parlour before a visit to discover the heritage of the 18th century manor house, Languard Manor.

Other attractions that are within easy reach of 9 Breakwater Way include the amusement park of Blackgang Chine, Carisbrooke Castle and Ventnor Botanic Garden.
