Really lovely property close to town. Booked for our wedding week. Very nice touches and plenty of room. One of the best places we have stayed on the island. Thank you
My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Auction house. It is every bit as comfortable and well equipped as the owners and reviews say. Comfortable, central, quiet. A real home from home. Would highly recommend.
We were 2 retired couples who rented the superb Auction House for a week. Although it is very central to restaurants, shopping, beach and fasciitis it was very quiet and peaceful both during the day and at night. The house is extremely well equipped for a self catering holiday and the information available for the use of utilities as well as a full compliment of sightseeing leaflets were outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the seating area at the side of the house where we could sit and chat over a glass of wine on a warm evening. If we ever come back to the Isle of Wight we would not look at any other self catering accommodation.
As the title says, a perfect holiday home to explore the Isle of Wight!
We felt very comfortable here during our stay and everything within the home was presented beautifully.
Ryde itself is an ideal location and had all the amenities we needed and more.
Communication with the owners was both helpful and friendly and we can't recommend their property highly enough. Thank you!
This house made our family weekend away feel like a luxury mini-break.
Who would have thought a trip with a 3 month old and a 3 year old could be so relaxing and feel so five star?!
The house is beautifully decorated, but practical enough that we felt comfortable letting our toddler roam about. The beds, linen, duvets and pillows are top quality and so comfy. Plus the walls are thick enough for the kids not to disturb each other in the night, so we all slept very peacefully.
I knew from previous reviews how well- equipped the house was, which made packing very easy. From essentials like dishwasher tablets to treats like the welcome tray of wine and shortbread, the owners have thought of everything you might need.
And the gorgeous toiletries in the luxury bathrooms make you feel very pampered - it reminded me of expensive hotel living before kids came along which was lovely!
Location is perfect with the shops, restaurants and seafront of Ryde a short walk away (Olivio was lovely - great food and family friendly). We were there end Sept and was still warm enough to play on the beach - and enjoy the trampolining on the seafront!
We also loved the old steam railway - don't miss the train themed playground and Thomas tracks to play with along the platform when you've finished your train ride!
Quarr Abbey is a lovely stop on the short drive back to the Fishbourne ferry - our little one loved feeding the pigs and the cakes in the tea room are fabulous.
We will definitely be returning for future holidays, and will be booking into this house early as it is (understandably!) very popular.
Nice house close to amenities in town centre. Co-op and Costa round the corner 5 mins away.
Accommodation comfortable and everything you need to hand. With a young family we would probably go for somewhere with garden /beach access if we return as were conscious of neighbours in courtyard and cars coming in from other residents but no issue with them at all. Location in nice and quiet would recommend.
We had a very pleasant week at The Auction House and had everything we needed. The owners were kind enough to give us ideas of what we could do whilst on the Isle of Wight. The decor and facilities in the house are great. Having our one year old with us meant we cooked at home most nights so it was good to have everything we would have in our own home. The shower is powerful and the water pressure is excellent. I comment on this because it has been an issue at other places we have stayed. The location is perfect as is a short walk to the town centre of Ryde and to the beautiful Appley beach and esplanade.
