Booked this apartment through Holiday Lettings and the first thing I noticed was how caring and informative the owner was to ensure that you knew everything about the Island and the apartment. We had a tiny query whilst on holiday and he was immediately contactable and did everything he could to ensure our problem was rectified immediately. The apartment has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. We did a tour of the Island and had the best fortnight ever! The views from the decking are amazing and due to the fabulous weather we had breakfast and dinner out on the decking most days. A top quality apartment in a lovely quiet area of Shanklin.

the view from the decking was outstanding with the view of the perfect gardens, and sea view.

ps would not recommend the fish and chip shop called junes. the worst ever and so expensive.

“What a view”

A really good location with an apartment that had all you required for a relaxing or energetic break.
The view from the decking area was perfect, a well kept garden and trees plus a sea view looking across the bay towards Shanklin, Sandown and the cliffs beyond.
Would recommend this property.

A comfortable modern apartment, very light and bright with everything we needed and plenty of storage space. The dishwasher and WiFi were much appreciated. We enjoyed sitting out on the very large balcony overlooking the sea. We would certainly re-book if we return to the Isle of Wight.

As regular visitors to the isle of wight we have experienced many types of accommodation in different places but this is one we will definitely return to. The whole process from booking the accommodation to returning the keys was made extremely easy by the owner. My husband and I were so pleased with the apartment and its location. Waking up to such beautiful views in a great location made our break away perfect. The apartment itself was amazing, everything we needed and more.The cleaniness was outstanding and we can honestly say it was the most peaceful place to really chill out. We will be re booking and would certainly recommend it.
