A lovely flat with great views of the sea in a beautiful village.

Wonderful apartment with breathtaking views and close to a very good pub/restaurant.

Whilst it is true that this apartment is right on the seaside, the photos don't quite reveal that the main view is of Portsmouth and the mainland coast. That may be really appealing to some people, but it might disappoint others who thought they were getting an uninterrupted sea view.

A wonderful spot to watch the world sail by.

We loved our stay at Starboard House! The view is beyond good! Seaview is a super cool little place and the pub The Old Fort was excellent! Make sure you book though... We would return here for sure. Thanks for another great week Classic. x

We are thrilled to read that you had such a lovely time at 1 Starboard House. We are sure that your review will be helpful to future guests and we so hope to welcome you back again so that you can continue your explorations. Sarah, Customer Support

The location was Amazing and The Old Fort restaurant offered exceptional food. Loved walking to Ryde during the day. Our time in this property was dampened by the constant load music and banging from the apartment underneath us. On Sunday the music started early afternoon and continued into the night and this was the same every night until we left. Friday night was exceptionally bad and my daughter couldn’t even get to sleep as her bed was vibrating! A much needed family break was ruined because of this and would demand a refund. Seaview is amazing and will definitely return but urge that in one else has the appalling experience we did as a family.

We were so very sorry to hear of the problem you experienced with the occupants of the apartment below. Our team have been in touch directly and we hope that we can resolve this to your satisfaction. Despite this disruption, we were pleased to see that you still enjoyed the location and the fabulous walks in the area. Tanya, Customer Services Manager

Lovely apartment in great location. Bit tricky finding the actual entrance on arrival. We would definitely come again

The car parking in front of garage four, there was so mush rubbish and junk around all four garages that I could not park as advertised. until the problem is resolved I could not recommend the property

Fantastic location, and great beach access. Always things to watch: tides, shipping, boating. Community shop excellent - 2 minutes walk. Lily's supplied good pizzas - even a gluten free one! Other residents of Starboard House friendly & helpful. Seating area and kitchen very good and well laid out, making the best of the space. Brilliant views across the Solent - even while washing up. The rocks on the beach are great for crabbing, and people were swimming from the beach 50m from the door. A great holiday place.

As discussed with the office on site, the flat is a 3rd floor flat an we encountered consistent issues with noise from both the ground floor (a party until 3am with music outside in the courtyard) followed by 3 nights of further significant noise from the 2nd floor flat - disturbing both adults and our children. Dreadful circumstances and if I had the energy, quite frankly, I'd be seeking a refund. Terrible accommodation from this perspective and ruined our holiday completely.

We are so sorry about the disturbance another resident caused - thank you so much for speaking with our Island team during your stay so that we could try to resolve it as best as possible. Classic Cottages

There have been improvements to the property since the photographs were taken including a larger double bed and a fantastic new contemporary bathroom. The views from the windows are amazing and the property is very warm, comfortable and well appointed. However, it should be noted that this is definitely an attic flat with low sloping ceilings. Access is up a steep open metal staircase. Once inside there is a narrow, twisting attic stair up to the bedrooms and living area. The bathroom is at the bottom of these stairs by the front door. There is a parking place in the adjoining yard which is shared with up to three other cars. It’s not easy unless you have a small hatchback and lots of patience. We have neither, so by day 3 we had given up and were parking on the street. Fine in September but would definitely be a problem in Jun/Jul/Aug.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review 1 Starboard House - it's lovely to hear that you had a great stay overall and some of the improvements to the property were a nice surprise overall (we've forwarded the suggestion of a new photo shoot to our team on the island for their consideration). 1 Starboard House is a top floor apartment accessed by external steps to the entrance - there are also additional stairs leading up to the living-room, kitchen and dining areas and the two bedrooms as mentioned in the description. There is a dedicated garage space for the property which we're sorry that you had some trouble with - however we are pleased you managed to find some street parking instead. Bryony, Customer Support

This is a super place to stay but it should be made clear that it’s a flat, up two flights of stairs. The photo in the catalogue makes it look as though the balcony is part of the rental but it isn’t. It would be possible to photograph the house from a different angle. Despite the list of dislikes being longer than that of the likes, this is a fabulous place to stay. Its situation is perfect, the flat is spacious and well cared for. I would be happy to stay here again.

It's a tricky house to get a differently angled photo of so we've used this one but included the information about the balcony in the description to let guests know. We list the different floors on our website too, but we're always available for help if you need anymore detail. Tressa, Customer Support

Overall the position and views of this property make it a winner- we’ll be back!
