  • "I thought the cottage was fantastic in a great location."

    It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The house was very spacious and perfect for our family of six plus a dog. The owners were very helpful and quickly answered all our queries quickly and efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to family and friends for a holiday in the Isle of Wight.

    So pleased you noticed the new mattresses :-) Thank you for your recommendation, much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "We thought the house was lovely, plenty of room, beautifully decorated and great facilities."

    We really appreciated the welcome pack of goodies, for us and the dog, and the fact that the owner paid for the parking. The central location in Sandown was very handy too. One comment we would make is that the information given before booking should make it plain that there is no outdoor space, as the house is dog friendly. Overall a wonderful holiday in a fantastic house.

  • "I loved the house."

    So light and airy, high ceilings upstairs and beautifully decorated with interesting ornaments/art. Every room was a delight to be in, kitchen covered all our needs in terms of equipment, etc., and all facilities worked. The story of the purchase and refit of the building was really interesting and the owners have done an amazing job. Quiet street, one block from beach and restaurants/supermarket - ideally placed, We parked in nearby car park or on street where available so it was never an issue.

    Many thanks for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Great location."

    Don’t let the limited parking put you off. We got a parking space everyday after returning from our days out. The house is a fantastic size and the layout was perfect for our family holiday. It was very clean on arrival and the fresh bread, jam and cookies were very much welcomed after our journey.
