  • "Lovely studio apartment."

    Not one for anyone with walking problems, or cars with handbrake issues.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Seaside."

    The apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and peaceful, and surprisingly quiet given that there's a flat above and neighbours next door. Being on the ground floor it was also very pleasantly cool which was especially welcome as it was an extremely hot week. It's lovely being so close to the sea and hearing the waves, and there are walks with beautiful views in both directions from the apartment. The drawback is that it's on a very steep hill and, if you come by car, you can't park outside or very nearby. We decided not to pay for a week's parking permit and instead parked, for free, in a road not too far away (Park Road) and this worked well for us. Another difficulty, (but this might be due to our ineptitude with such things!) was that we found the keysafe very difficult to open. On arrival we almost gave up trying after numerous failed attempts but then, miraculously, it opened! But no such luck when we left so we posted the key back through the letterbox instead. We've found keysafes tricky at times previously but have never before been unable to open one eventually. But, notwithstanding these issues, we loved the apartment and its location (in spite of the climb!) and wouldn't hesitate to return.

  • "Just right for couples."

    The facilities were good and very clean, with a thoughtful welcome pack as well. Very central to all the amenities that Ventnor has to offer, and only a few short yards to and from the promenade, all be it, up and down a very steep hill. But that’s Ventnor for you. People with severe mobility issues may find the access to the accommodation a challenge. Not withstanding this, we had a wonderful week and if we were returning to the Island, we would have no hesitation in rebooking ‘Seaside’. Regards, Robert.

  • "We really enjoyed our week’s stay in this property which is located close to the seafront of Ventnor and was an ideal base for exploring the island."

    We found the property clean, well maintained and comfortable. The premises are very well equipped with a en-suite, great kitchen/diner/lounge. The welcome pack could have included more information about the property and instructions for all appliances. Parking in not permitted outside the premises but is available in the nearby carpark. We purchased a 7 day parking permit giving unlimited parking at a cost of £52.90. The property is located on a steep hill and there are steps down into the property which did not bother us but it would be difficult for anyone with limited mobility.

  • "It would be easier to access the door with a hand rail."

    The steps are very deep and slippery when wet.

  • "Superb apartment for a couple; very clean and everything you could need including a fan, hairdryer, airer and cleaning products etc."

    Delightfully decorated with a sea view and literally a few meters from the sea front. Would not be suitable for someone with limited mobility as there are a few steep steps down to the front door. We paid for a tourist parking permit for seven days and found this to be really convenient, especially when travelling around the island. You just use the code given on the parking machine. Usually parked at the car park above the Spyglass Inn if no space along the seafront, a very short walk away. Would recommend Seaside, fabulous location.

  • ""Seaside" is a beautiful apartment, spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and ideally placed for the beach and town."

    Although less than 50 yards from the prom, the apartment was peaceful with very few persons or traffic passing the door as it is situated in a no-through road. Whilst sitting at the breakfast bar you can see the sea and can also hear the waves breaking from the bedroom at night. Two bus routes stop within a 5 minute walk one of which runs every 30 minutes (with a night service at the weekend) so "Seaside" is ideal for those who do not have their own transport. There are walks from the doorstep towards Bonchurch in one direction - a flat, easy walk, and Steephill Cove in the other direction - an undulating walk along the coastal footpath. Penny was helpful and welcoming and I would recommend a stay at "Seaside" without reservation.

A studio apartment, close to the beach, located in the village of Ventnor.

This neatly presented accommodation is laced with charm and makes a lovely setting for couples to enjoy a romantic getaway.

Walk down the steps and wander inside, where you will find a far reaching open plan sitting room.

You can sit back and watch TV on the comfortable sofa or dine overlooking sea views.

A couple of steps take you to the well equipped kitchen with a grey finish, accompanied by a breakfast bar where you can enjoy a coffee in the morning.

Joining the layout, a relaxing double bedroom sweeps across from this, the perfect space to unwind.

A shower room completes the accommodation.

Outside is where you will want to be.

Victorian architecture surrounds you, and a beach lies almost on your doorstep - you can take a stroll whatever time of day you wish to.

The seaside resort of Ventnor provides great walking and cycling opportunities, being on the Isle of Wight coastal path.

The beautiful Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit and just a short drive away.

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. Ventnor is one of the Isle of Wight’s most prestigious food destinations with a good variety of high-quality restaurants,
Bistros, pubs and shops along the esplanade and close to the town centre. The Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit, whilst around the island there are great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay. This great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year-round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight!
