This is a lovely property in a good location about 10 mins walk into Ventnor, our visit in September found many places closed but this could be due to the virus situation, those that were open were very conscientious about the situation. We used the buses to travel around whilst walking the coastal path, these were clean efficient and on time (some delays due to road resurfacing). The property is well equipped and spacious, was a lovely place to return and relax in. We had no issues during our stay and were able to sit out on the terrace on a couple of evenings.

The cottage was very well equipped. There were no oven gloves so I had to use a towel. But there were so many things supplied that I didn't expect.
There were only 2 real issues.
One was the water pressure for the shower in the main bathroom. This was too low to have a decent shower sho we ended up sharing the en suite shower room.
The second problem was the bad drain smell emanating primarily from the en suite bathroom. I did report this and someone came around quickly and reported back that the drains had been thoroughly flushed through. This did resolve the issue but the smell had returned before the end of the holiday. I think a more permanent solution needs to be found for this problem.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad to read you found the flat well equipped. There are oven gloves available, perhaps they were hidden under a tea towel? We will try to leave them on top in future. The water pressure to the main shower is normally fine as previous guests have mentioned but we will ensure this is double checked. We have now rodded the drains and flushed everything through. We do hope this issue did not detract from your holiday too much and that you still enjoyed our stunning sea views, light and airy apartment and Ventnor's many amenities. Sarah, Customer Service

Lovely big apartment with beautiful sea views & very well equipped. The only downsides are that the allocated parking space is difficult to manoeuvre into and that the whole area is set on a hill side so there are steep paths and hills to get anywhere so you need to be quite fit if you want to walk around.

Thanks for reviewing 1 St Josephs and we're so pleased you had a great stay overall. Madeira Road is set above the town of Ventor which does mean a few steep paths here and there but we're sure you'd agree the panoramic views out across The Solent are worth it! There is a private parking space located at the rear of the property and also limited additional free parking on the street in front of 1 St Josephs if you find this easier. Bryony, Customer Support
