“Excellent paperwork in the house with very well organized information on all services and appliances.”
The house has been sold and we were the last tenants. We enjoyed Shanklin as a destination and the seafront was very close to the house.

“Lovely property in a quiet area.”
Handy for town station and beach. Has everything you need
“This house is close to town and for a fit person is in walking distance to the sea front.”
We found the house well equipped and comfortable.
“Driftwood was well beyond our expectations and in a very convenient location for shops and the beach.”
“Everything we needed was provided.”
It was a perfect home from home. The location was perfect for public transport links as we didn't take a car.
“Amazing home from home with excellent location”
I've worked on the island over a few weeks and this has been my sanctuary, a real home from home. It's been lovely and warm through Jan/Feb and had everything in the house I could possibly need. The location is also excellent - the high street a few mins walk in one direction and the sea promenade 10 mins walk the other way, which is where I found myself most evenings going for a stroll after work. It's been a pleasure staying here. My colleagues & I will make a beeline for here every time we visit in future.
“An amazing home from home.”
I was working on the Island and this place was lovely to come back to each night. It was warm and cosy despite freezing temperatures outside and had everything I wanted there to use. The location is also excellent - just a few mins walk to the high street one way or 10 mins walk to the esplanade the other way. My colleagues and I will all look to book this as our first choice place to stay on the Island in future. It really was such a pleasure.

“Excellent standard throughout.”
Location very good within easy walking distance of town centre and sea front/Shanklin Chine
“Lovely newly built house close to everything Shanklin has to offer.”
Stayed with my partner and his two brothers on a weekend in Shanklin. Very close to pubs, restaurants and shops, and a short walk down to the seafront. Lovely new house that can sleep 4 with everything you could need in the kitchen along with comfortable bedding & towels. Great location to get about the Island with buses and the Train station close if not driving. Would recommend anytime of year as always something to do on the Isle of Wight, with autumn/winter giving a different atmosphere.
“Extremely comfortable modern property within easy walking distance of sea front, buses, trains and shops.”
The area was very quiet despite the nearby hotels being busy. Lovely to have the car parked and not use it all week, just used our feet and bus passes. Thank you.
This superb, mid-terrace townhouse is just five minutes’ walk from the heart of Shanklin and sandy beach, on the Isle of Wight and provides all the home comforts required for a really fantastic holiday.
Entering this contemporary home, you see the care that has been put into every aspect of the fixtures, fittings and furnishings, with the open plan living area providing a welcoming and spacious environment.
The fitted kitchen is at the front of the house and has been extremely well designed and stocked with everything you would need, including a washer/dryer; perfect after those wonderfully sunny days spent on the beach.
There is a dining area just off the kitchen area, with the sitting area having an exceptionally soft and comfortable leather three seater sofa and large armchair.
Upstairs you will find a relaxing bathroom, with a curved bath with a shower over.
There are two bedrooms, both with large fitted wardrobes, which will provide a fantastic night’s sleep.
Outside to the rear is the patio garden with table and chairs; why not enjoy the sea breeze with a meal or refreshing drink?
Shanklin is an extremely popular seaside town, packed full of interesting little shops and superb, highly reviewed restaurants and cafés, including the Fine Nammet, which was awarded gold status by Les Routiers.
Shanklin’s golden, sandy beach is stunning in the summer and winter alike, with the picturesque views remaining unchanged and unspoilt over the years, making this town ideal for a traditional bucket and spade holiday.
The esplanade has everything you would expect, such as seaside cafés, an amusement arcade, crazy golf, bowling, go-karting and even an indoor play area!
For the more adventurous there is always kayaking, bodyboarding, windsurfing, or sailing.
Walk the long way to the beach via Shanklin Old Village and Shanklin Chine, one of the island’s oldest attractions, passing quaint little shops along the way; this is a lovely way to start your day, by walking through the leafy gorge and winding unspoilt woodlands, where you can enjoy rare plants, wildlife and waterfalls.
A wonderful and comfortable base for exploring the east of the Isle of Wight.

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.
