  • "Very nice clean, well maintained, peaceful and well-located cottage"

  • "We had a lovely stay at Sea Salt Cottage, A bottle of fizz on arrival and tea coffee milk and Biscuits, very much appreciated."

    The Cottage is Beautifully Furnished and comfortable. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed with the iron and ironing board as iron didn’t work well and Board was broken so therefore Unusable. The Cottage had hard flooring downstairs which was really Creaky and most annoying. Also Bathroom window is not Obscured glass and is overlooked quite closely so had to keep blind down. We would really of liked a washing machine at the property and I’m aware there’s a laundrette near by but who wants to go there whilst on holiday? Lovely little place, kitchen well Equipped but unfortunately would not stay again as the property doesn’t have a washing machine.

    We're so glad to hear that you had a lovely stay at Seasalt Cottage and that the welcome gifts were appreciated! We stayed at the property ourselves last week and noticed that the ironing board was broken and so we have replaced this. The iron was working fine. It's the first time we have had a guest mention the bathroom window as we usually just put the blind down when changing. We will look at purchasing some frosted glass film for the bathroom window. When we renovated the cottage, we had to decide between a dishwasher and a washing machine in the kitchen. After discussing this with many potential guests, we opted for the dishwasher. Most guests tend to stay no longer than a week so the lack of a washing machine isn't usually an issue. Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback and we're happy that you had a great stay and enjoyed the cottage. Property Owner

  • "Very convenient cottage."

    As we came by public transport the lack of parking wasn't a problem for us.

    We're glad to hear that you had a good stay and enjoyed the great location near to the high street and the beach. Property Owner

  • "Parking was the only downside really."

    There is a special tourist pass you can buy for council car parks, which you need a specific number for when paying using Paybyphone. It would have been good to have been pre-advised about this, before we paid for a week in a single car park!

    Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear that parking was the only downside! We think you must have been send an old PDF in error as the current information that is sent out states the tourist permit parking code that can be used at many car parks across the island. We hope you come back to stay in the future. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and uncluttered."

    Quiet location but really handy for shops and facilities. Car parking off site but not an issue, though we preferred to use a car park a little further away than the nearby one, as it was a flat walk (older couple) Really well equipped kitchen (in fact we’ve immediately bought the exact same microwave as soon as we’ve returned home!) and plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and utensils. Fantastic Smart Sky TV and DVD, and the convenience of an extra downstairs loo. Huge clothes cupboard in the bedroom as well as drawers etc, and beautiful window seat in the bedroom. Comfy bed and crisp white bedding. Really lovely.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. We're so pleased that you loved your stay at Seasalt Cottage. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was fine and it’s a great location."

    Could do with some TLC just to ‘snag’ some decorations, the fridge, loose door step to back door and shower but these are minor quibbles. Good choice for couples and small families.

    Thank you so much for staying at Seasalt Cottage again. We appreciate you pointing out these minor snags, which we were rectified prior to the Summer season. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Seasalt Cottage, and love the I."

    O.W. The location was good, everything close by and the beach within walking distance. A big problem was the parking, you could not park at the cottage and paying for car parks was very expensive for the week. When we arrived at the cottage there was no bin bags as stated or any dishwasher tablets, dishcloths etc. We have had to purchase the bin bags whilst we were their. This is the first time we have ever stayed in a cottage where they do not provide any cleaning products at all.

    We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. The brilliant location just off the high street and so close to the beach and in a peaceful courtyard does mean that there isn't parking directly outside. We're fortunate that the parking is only a few minutes walk away and the parking fee for the week does include parking at many other tourist car parks around the whole island. We're so sorry to hear that there weren't cleaning products at the cottage when you arrived. Our housekeeping team do usually provide bin bags, dishwasher tablets, dishcloths etc and we're sorry that wasn't left out for you on this occasion. There are cleaning products in under the kitchen sink and a well-equipped kitchen with foil, clingfilm etc as well as everything you need for cooking. Thank you for taking the time to send your feedback. Property Owner

    Great communication with the owners throughout the booking making our stay relaxing. Location was ideal for beach access during the day and plenty of restaurants in walking distance in the evening.

  • "We were so happy to be able to book a few nights away!"

    ! Seasalt Cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs. The property was very clean and well appointed. The décor is beautiful and very calming. We received a lovely welcome pack upon our arrival - for which we were very grateful. The cottage is located in a small, gated development, just off Ventnor High Street - which meant that trips to the shops and the nearby beach and restaurants were really easy with two children in tow! Nowhere is too far on the Isle of Wight, so we took plenty of day trips around the island - but were always very happy to come back and relax in our home-from-home. The owners provided us with plenty of information including tips on where to eat, what to see and beaches to visit - which really came in handy and was much appreciated. We visited just after lockdown lifted - but lots of restaurants were opening up and pleased to have visitors. I'd recommend booking at the moment. We would highly recommend Seasalt Cottage for a break. Book it quickly - as we have already recommended Seasalt Cottage to lots of our friends :)

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Seasalt Cottage. We are so pleased you had a wonderful stay and thank you for recommending us to your friends! Property Owner

  • "This is a second."

    Visit and it was just as good as the first the location and area are ideal for getting around the island, we did feel that the cottage did require a little bit of maintenance work here and there ,but it is the end of the season.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and for returning for a second stay with us. We appreciate you letting us know about these maintenance issues I am pleased to say they have all now been rectified and the cottage is back in perfect condition. We hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Seasalt Cottage is a beautifully decorated house in the quietest of locations yet only a stones throw from all the restaurants cafes bars and shops that the lovely coastal town of Ventnor has to offer."

    Just a 5 minute walk to the beach and promenade. The house has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday and all to a very high standard. Parking is just around the corner and a weekly ticket allows you to park in many other car parks all around the Island. This is a real gem and well worth a visit.
