The house is immaculate, and sits in the most stunning location looking out over the sea. I don't think the photos do it justice. I'm sort of tempted to keep this place a secret, so we can stay there again, but the owner Richard was so friendly and helpful with his recommendations and local knowledge, it wouldn't be fair to keep it to myself!

The house sits high up above Ventnor and has fabulous gardens on both sides, which my children really enjoyed. There is a lovely area outside for BBQ-ing and dining and the balcony off the living room is perfect for watching the moon come up over the sea. I saw shooting stars one night!

The bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed, the views from the rooms are just amazing.

It's tricky in these Covid times to find good eateries that are actually open at the moment, so do your research before you go and book restaurants. Personal fave is Pavarottis in Shanklin for real Italian food. There's a nice fish place on Ventnor seafront - Smoking Lobster - which gets really booked, and we couldn't get a table even trying to book one week ahead.

If you decide to stay in and eat at the house, its well equipped with everything you need... except for a coffee machine! I should have packed mine, but there is a coffee filter jug instead if you need it.

Amazing week we had here, we definitely plan to go back. Huge thanks to the owner for helping us have a fantastic holiday in his home.

very clean with an excellent welcome pack. a very comfortable house and of course the views are brilliant, very pleasant sitting on the balcony with our G&Ts. the garden is large and lovely but steep and quite a struggle from the cars for 85 year olds, but worth it when we get to the top, there is a comfortable seat half way.

This accommodation was excellent. We stayed for 2 weeks and didn't want to leave when it came to an end. House was very comfortable for 8 people, very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfy, kitchen had every utensil, cutlery, pots and pans, crockery and glasses you could ever need, and towels were supplied for bathroom use.

The owner and the housekeeper were very friendly and helpful and the complimentary items were a great touch. Views from the property and the large balcony are magnificent panoramas of the sea, with many ships passing on a daily basis. The garden to the property was very nice with many levels as the property is on a gradient, as are the majority of priorities in Ventnor. This means there will be a bit of climbing involved, perfectly fine for the average person but something to bear in mind if you or your party is a little unsteady on their feet.

We've stayed on the island many years, but this was the first time in Ventnor, we found it to be great with plenty of local shops and places to eat, with a great fish and chip shop over the road. The spyglass Inn and the Met Italia were very good too.

Overall a great place to spend your hard worked for holiday. Would love to stay again.

Lovely large house in a great location. Steps down to the beach might not be great for younger children. Beach was small but lovely and local amenities were perfect. We really enjoyed our stay.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your say in Ventnor, and that the house suited your party. There are a few access points to the beach, so you can avoid the wooden steps if they are a bit daunting for the younger children and use one of the sets of stone steps instead. Tanya, Customer Support
