Lovely large house with every facility in near perfect location.

Seacrest is an amazing holiday house. A real home from home. Immaculately clean when we arrived and welcome groceries in the fridge. A house that sleeps 10 and has all the kitchen and dining equipment needed for 10 people. There was loads of space inside and out. 2 family cars fitted easily into the driveway but maybe a little tight for 3. We had awful wet windy weather so we’re not able to be on the beach across the road but could see fabulous views when the rain cleared.

We looked forward to and saved hard for this holiday. Initially it seemed to fit our needs. The shine soon diminished when we discovered there was no hot water and a faulty boiler which the owner was aware of. We had no hot water for half our holiday and eventually an emergency visit from a Heating Engineer to turn off the boiler. The owner was having a new boiler fitted but this did not benefit us. This problem was very stressful and time consuming not what you want on a family holiday.

Another wonderful stay at Seacrest House. Ideal location for the sandy beach. Well equipped, spacious kitchen. The ground floor shower room was a great addition to this property. Very much looking forward to coming back next year

Lovely spacious home in a great location, settled in very quickly. The house had everything we needed, lots of interesting books to read. Would definitely stay there again.

A beautiful, spacious property opposite a sandy beach, lake & amusements. Well equipped & with ample private parking. Exceptionally clean and comfy. Wish to go back many more times!

This amazing house exceeded expectations. It's so spacious. The beds are very comfortable. All the rooms are lovely and the level of equipping is exceptional. There are even 3 book cases full of books! The quiet back garden is a delight, and from the front lawn you can exit through the gate, across the esplanade and straight into the beach. The location means you can walk there from the foot ferry in under 30 mins. And it's close to bus routes and the train to Shanklin. It's only a short walk from the town centre with loads of places to eat. If you're driving there is ample off road parking.

We stayed in Seacrest as 2 families with young children and grandparents. Lovely house in great location on seafront. The rooms are spacious & the property we'll equipped. The space inside and the secure garden made it a relaxing time enjoyed by all of us. The IoW has much to offer particularly for children and we look forward to returning.

Beautiful house in great location, just across the road to beach and a walk to other amenities. Very spacious, well equipped, ideal for large families of all ages.

This is a fantastic house, in a great seafront location with parking included. It has huge space and flexibility for families over three floors and is a great base for exploring the island.

A beautiful house in an excellent location. It is equipped with everything you need, including games and books. Spotlessly clean and ideal for a larger group. Lovely garden space at the front and very useful to have 3 parking spaces.

Lovely spacious, well equipped house in fantastic location. Great views across the Solent and easy walking distance to shops and amenities. Great walk from the house along the esplanade to Seaview. A nice touch to have the welcome pack in the fridge. We had a great week and would consider booking again in the future.

The best possible location for a beach holiday - a fabulously spacious property that a sheer delight to stay in. Anyone staying will love this house

Beautiful airy property on the seafront at Ryde. Close to all amenities. Very helpful housekeeper. Would definitely recommend.

A lovely house, in a wonderful location. We wouldn't mind to return again and again!

We had a fantastic holiday with three families. The house accommodated us really well and I'd in an amazing location for all Ryde has to offer. The gardens and parking are also a big bonus.

Best equipped property we’ve hired in 14 years of annual family holidaying for 6 adults and 4 children - now nearly or actually teenagers. The off-road parking was good for 4 vehicles, once through the relatively narrow entrance. Very comprehensive, much appreciated, welcome pack of food and the local Isle of Wight County Press newspaper. All very welcome and probably the best we have experienced to date.

Seacrest is in a great location for the beach and town. It was spacious, warm and comfortable with views across to Portsmouth so there was always something to watch.

Thank you so much for your lovely review for Seacrest House. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the location and hope that you had some great walks on the beach. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Great house and venue for mixed aged family groups who enjoy a real seaside holiday. Even with Covid restrictions we all enjoyed ouselves.

This must be 'Classic Cottages' Flagship property. FIVE STARS. A superb house and seafront location

Seacrest proved to be an ideal house for our family party; there is plenty of space and it is well-equipped, with a good standard of furnishings and appliances. The large garden is safe for the children and access to the beach is easy. A wonderfully relaxed holiday in a commodious and comfortable house!

its just a shame I wasn't quick enough to rebook for next year, still I am trying another of the properties your company offers for next year.

Beautiful house and perfect for a family of 6 adults and 3 children. The house was a great size for us all, the bedrooms were extremely spacious and comfortable, and it was great to have 4 bathrooms. You couldn't beat the location being so close to the sea, and it was invaluable to have parking for 3 cars. We would definitely return and would recommend to others.

Spacious property that enabled the family to be together when wanted or to find a quiet space when needed. Facilities very good.

Lovely spacious, well equipped house, in a wonderful location, great for multi generational holidays.

Fantastic location, great views, easy access to Ryde and amenities. Lovely big rooms.

A wonderful well equipped house that is suitable for all ages in a splendid location. A good place for a real family holiday.

Five adults and four children, with ages ranging from seven to twelve, were comfortably housed within Seacrest. The property was furnished to exactly the correct standards for a family holiday. Everything worked and even the hot-water boiler adequately coped with the demands of nine. Delightful to be able simply cross the road and enjoy a promenade, or beach stroll in the evening.

This is a gorgeous house. Much more spacious than expected. The photos online don't do it justice. The ceilings are really high and the whole house is so bright and airy. We all loved it and didn't want to leave. Very well equipped and especially appreciated the wonderful variety of books . Location is excellent and the rear garden perfect for eating out without being overlooked.

The location is perfect for our needs. The beds are comfortable and there is a well equipped kitchen. The 'breakfast in the fridge' and the milk, bread and biscuits were very welcome!

Seacrest House is a beautiful period property, maintained to a high standard and ideally located for beach and access to town and travel facilities. I visited with a group of friends from the UK, USA and Australia and they all loved it.

A lovely place for friends to holiday together with plenty of room to spread out and relax. All the amenities of Ryde are a short walk away, so no designated drivers needed when dining out. All 10 of us has a very enjoyable holiday.

Excellent property - so well equipped in the kitchen, and with lots of board games already provided plus a wonderful welcome hamper on arrival! We enjoyed Seacrest over New Years Eve, for a long weekend with mixed couples and children. It was great for us, loads of space and well located.

Seacrest House was perfect for our group of walking ladies. We were so impressed - it exceeded our expectations! It was lovely to find groceries provided and that meant we didn't even have to shop when we arrived after a day of travelling and a long walk. The house was warm and very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water!

Fabulous property and absolutely perfect for a family get-together. 10 of us met for a family wedding. We had the best weekend helped hugely by staying in such a great house. Thank you.

A superb house ideal for the larger family.

Myself and 9 friends stayed in Seacrest House in the first week of July to celebrate completing our A Levels. The house was perfect! Very spacious, clean and tidy and well equipped. Also with a prime location overlooking the beach and near to the bus station and pier. We very much appreciated the extra tokens such as shampoo and soap as well as bread and milk...etc... We made good use of the games room downstairs and the lovely garden which leads out toward the beach. Overall, a lovely house which made for a perfect first trip. Would recommend! Thanks.

Yes. Excellent holiday home ideal for larger groups of mixed ages. Games room & TV downstairs meant conversation possible without distraction. Location facing the seafront ideal. Very clean and very comfortable

Outstanding Victorian house in prime location overlooking Ryde Beach. Direct views across to Portsmouth and the Emirates Spinnaker Tower. A stunning property, beautifully arranged, with amazing sea views.
