  • "Don't go by the photographs, this property was cleaned to a reasonable standard for our arrival but some equipment and fittings needed urgent attention."

    From the handle on the front of the oven, almost hanging off because the screws were very loose (I tightened them) to various light switch pull cord acorns missing, making use of them difficult (I replaced the acorns) to the totally ridiculous back garden layout, which resembles the Himalayas, with quite frankly, dangerous steps when wet and a state of disrepair throughout the upper floors of the house. Two of the three showers had to be fixed to make them useable (again my repairs) as the shower heads kept dropping. The mattress in the King Size bedroom has seen better days and has a huge dent, permanently on the side nearest the door. The parking is best describes as VERY tight as the driveway to it is very overgrown, resulting in scratches down the side of my car and the actual parking area is "ok for two medium sized cars", yeah if they are small cars and you have a crane to put them there. The location is ok but expect lots of up and down hill walking. Overall I would rate this property as around 7/10 now, after I did minor repairs to make it work for us. The owner needs to visit and carry out permanent repairs and not just rely on the cleaners to make the house shipshape...some misinformation on the welcome pack book regards putting the bins out too, Thursday, not Friday....and good luck trying to work out the central heating!....oh and the Welcome Pack was most welcome, thank you, very useful.

Enjoying sea glimpses and a stone's throw away from the beach and a range of amenities, 7 Hope Road offers a well-equipped, spacious base for a family of six, looking to explore the delights of the Isle.

Benefit from two off-road parking spaces to the rear, sought-after in the area, before travelling through the enclosed patio, a delight for alfresco dining whilst your furry companion roams safely.

Ideal for teenagers, grandparents, or those looking for a bit of privacy, the ground floor houses a homely living/dining room, a double bedroom, a bathroom, and the utility, providing a lovely nook away from the rest of the home.

The remaining two bedrooms, a king-size enjoying elevated sea views, and a twin, rest on the second floor, and are serviced by a shower room.

Just a stroll away, reach Shanklin's beachfront, brimming with shops, eateries, pubs, and lovely gardens, where you can spend the day as a family, sampling local menus, making memories and taking in the stunning coastal scenes; Shanklin Chine is also nearby for those who prefer nature-filled landscapes.

Travelling west reach Sandown, home to a further sandy shoreline, Sandham Gardens, and the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary, whilst the Amazon World Zoo is also nearby, a perfect attraction for animal lovers.

With so many hidden gems dotted across the Isle of Wight AONB, enjoy all of this, and more from 7 Hope Road.

About the location


  • Sandown 2.2 miles
  • Godshill 4 miles

The town of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight is a traditional seaside resort, sitting in a sheltered, sunny bay on the south-east coast of the island. Shanklin and Sandown offer all the right ingredients for a great summer holiday, with long, safe, sandy beaches and loads of family attractions, such as a zoo, pier and fairground, plus shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs. The older part of Shanklin, known as Shanklin Old Village, is set slightly lower than the town, where the road winds between traditional thatched cottages, tea shops and charming gardens and parks. Explore Shanklin Chine, a dramatic gorge with a waterfall tumbling through lush plants and mossy boulders. At the top of the cliff is the bustling High Street of shops and the grand Victorian theatre, at the bottom there are cafes, shops and amusements along the suntrap esplanade and sandy beach. Shanklin is great starting point for numerous coastal and inland walks (with the option to return using the local bus network). The rest of the island, including Sandown, Godshill, Blackgang Chine and The Needles, is all easily accessible.

The stairs at the side of the house are not to be used.
