Lovely location and views. Perfect for evening strolls along the beach. Great little hut for base camp, just a couple of maintenance issues to be fixed and last visitors did not clean crocks and utensils particularly well but overall good little location.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed the location. Sorry to hear that there were a few maintenance issues - we've shared these with the housekeeping team, thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

Easy to get to from ferry. Lovely location and handy to visit all sites. Very comfortable accommodation.

Excellent location - beach 30 seconds away and pub/village a few minutes

45 minute beach walk to Ryde

Good parish walk starts at site

Small for more than two people

Lovely cottage in a really great location.

Perfect location, lovely little bungalow which comfortably houses two people with all you could need and want and great internet connection. The only negative was the constant midgies from the nature reserves lake further along, so take insect spray, they were pesty

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay on the Island. Sorry to hear that you noticed some midges in the area - it's not something that we've been made aware of previously so don't think it's linked to the nearby nature reserve, but thanks for making us aware. Tanya, Customer Support

Great for walking and the nature reserve next door if you like bird watching

I would use Wight location again , but the owners of the beach retreat need to take note of what needs to be update etc

Accommodation was lovely, but some things need updating as it was not the most comfortable. Lovely seaviews and not far from local attractions.

We thought the situation of the bungalow better than expected as we loved Seaview and the stretch of water in front of the bungalow. We certainly would love to return.

Great location, good value, lovely place to stay, I would recommend to anyone, its cheaper than a caravan.

Happy for all of my comments to be published

Great location

Nice but tiny beach let. Good enough for two people clean and comfortable. Opposite the sea and it is situated perfectly to visit surrounding area.

Generally, a very well furnished property maintained to a high standard.property, leading to a very comfortable stay. Also, it happens to be in a prime position, meeting the most usual holiday needs.

Great location for walking and cycling Very handy for beach Easy walk to Ryde and Bembridge Good bus service

The Beach Retreat is a compact property as detailed, and is fitted with electric heaters rather than a central heating system. We're sorry that you had some difficulties with the wifi and TV reception - we'll get this checked. Our sales team would be very happy to help you choose a bigger property with different facilities in the future. Classic Cottages

Really enjoyed our stay, Beach Retreat is excellently located for walking and cycling. Pubs and cafes very close by in this peaceful and quiet location. Tip for future guests - give the oven plenty of time to warm up.

We loved our stay at The Beach Retreat. Everything was perfect. Location lovely...right opposite the sea....everything was clean..in fact, can’t fault anything. We will definitely return...oh, and bed was very comfy...x

Very comfortable apart from disabled access

Very pretty, nicely-decorated, interior

Lovely accommodation in a brilliant location. Our family love to go to the Isle of Wight and Seaview in particular.

Great location for taking it easy and recharging. Value for money. We've been back 4 times I think now, so hope that speaks for itself.

We had a lovely week in the Beach Retreat, it was quiet in early September but the weather was still beautiful. Lovely walks in Puckpool Park and beyond and a great place to watch the shipping.

It’s a perfect place to stay, great views and a Lovely beach just a few meters away. Ideal location to visit the island. We will definitely like to return again and again.

Stayed at 'The Beach Retreat' & had a lovely relaxing holiday, like a home from home.

Perfect location easy reach of beach and nature reserve lovely walks by seawall a wonderful place to relax

A delightful cottage - ideal for a couple or small family - in a lovely location - perfect for beach walks and very short drive to Ryde.
