    The apartment was 1st class very clean and every thing you needed we had a very good time and the apartment made it better the only bad thing for myself was the stairs - 34 steps up. The parking was a pain 10am till 6pm on the sea front £7 but then free over night ...

    The apartment was 1st class very clean and every thing you needed we had a very good time and the apartment made it better the only bad thing for myself was the stairs - 34 steps up. The parking was a pain 10am till 6pm on the sea front £7 but then free over night. ** Owner Response** Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to feed back, I really appreciate it and am delighted The Beach Retreat added to the enjoyment of your holiday and that you thought the flat was 1st class. I'm sorry the parking proved tricky on this occasion as your visit was in high season when there are some parking charges along the sea front. I'm new to holiday letting and perhaps could have made it clearer that the Isle of Wight offers Tourist Parking Permits which you can buy online so I've now added this to the listing for future guests. As for the stairs, I think it's worth adding that the apartment is part of a fairly recent refurbishment, so the internal stairs leading to the apartment are wide, well lit and do have some little landings along the way so hopefully worth it for the zen style views across the sea. Thank you for your lovely card too, this was much appreciated.

The property

This immaculate top floor, split-level Victorian apartment is situated on the South East coast of the Isle of Wight in the town of Sandown.

The property is one of the early grand buildings constructed to accommodate the up and coming fashionable seaside holidays of that era.

Set one road back from the open esplanade and the beautiful wide stretching sandy beach of Sandown bay, the apartment benefits from the superb sea views out over the English Channel.

The communal entrance is spotlessly maintained with lighting coming on with every step you take up to the front door on the second floor.

You enter into the hallway with a bedroom straight ahead of you; a light, serene double room waits, with large built-in wardrobes to hide away any luggage or additional holiday shopping.

To the right you will find the family bathroom, perfect for having a soak after a day spent exploring.

Continue right and you open into the stunning open plan living area with a kitchen, dining and sitting area decorated to a high specification, your every comfort has been thought of and this is a real luxury home from home.

Sit down and drink in the views from the white cliffs of Culver Down out towards the English Channel.

Directly outside of the kitchen window look through one of the many walkways that leads you down to the beach and enjoy the simple pleasure of the shallow waves lapping onto the shore.

Turn left from the front door and you open into the master bedroom, take the seven steps down to the large built-in wardrobe and dressing area, again thoughtfully decorated with relaxation in mind and this bedroom has the added luxury of a spacious en-suite shower room.

Sandown is a seaside resort town that is overlooked and protected by the stunning white cliffs of Culver Down.

The sheltered waters and long stretch of sandy beach start at Yaverland, continues onto Sandown Bay all the way up to Shanklin Chine and beyond.

Perfect for that bucket and spades holiday, enjoying walks and stopping at the cafés along the Esplanade.

For that added adventure, pop along to Wight Water Adventures for fun or professional training courses in kayaking, rookie lifeguard, sailing, paddle boarding, surfing, body boarding and windsurfing.

Walk left along the beach towards Yaverland, for a little pitch and putt at the island famous Browns family golf course, and then walk along to The Isle of Wight Zoo, that is housed in one of the original defence forts built to protect us from the French invasion.

An ideal holiday apartment for those looking to spend some special time together, enjoying the simple pleasure the sun, sea and sand have to offer.
