We loved our stay at Merivale! It is so well located in the village and has everything you need. It has a well sized garden with a bbq and a great kitchen. All the rooms are lovely and it had great new bathrooms. We really enjoyed our stay and loved being so near the sea! Having been coming down to Seaview for over 30 years, we would recommend Merivale!

Absolutely beautiful home perfect for a family holiday by the sea. Well equipped for children and spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Child friendly garden complete with apple tree and swing. Seaview is such a lovely location - beautiful beaches, and we highly recommend the Old Fort for a meal, if you can bag an outside table you can enjoy your dinner overlooking the sea. Also there is a great 15-20 minute walk round to Appley beach where we spent hours, after a delicious brunch at The Dell cafe. We are hoping to be back again one day in the future!

A very comfortable and well-equipped property in a quiet village location a very easy and short walk from the large beach and close to Ryde. In our party there were five adults, a child, an infant and a dog. There was plenty of room for all of us and with an enclosed garden and stairgates fitted it was very safe for the little ones and the dog. The house is nicely kitted out, comfortable beds and modern bathrooms and perfectly located for the beach and nice walks.

We had a fantastic week at Merivale helped by the great weather! House is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for 4 adults and 2 teens plus a dog! Brilliant location for walking to the beach, pub, cafe etc and will definitely be back.

Overall a great location but property tired and needs some decorating

Merivale was an ideal home away from home. The decor of the home is to a high standard and the extras added in the property for children make your holiday perfect including a swing in the garden. The house is very spacious allowing families to have their own space if needed. The location is amazing as so close to the beach and shops/food whilst being quiet and peaceful. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here for a lovely holiday on the Isle of Wight.

Lovely house in a great location, less than 5 minutes walk from the sea, pub and shop. Plenty of parking outside on the street.
Mr Mackintosh September 2020

Mrs Alford September 2019
Merivale is a very comfortable and wonderfully located holiday house in a charming small seaside town. The fact we could walk to the excellent community shop, to the very good local eateries and to the sea makes it a highly commendable ( and dog friendly) place to stay.
Ms Diglas July 2019
Merivale is a lovely house with high-quality beds, good bathrooms and very well equipped kitchen. Unfortunately, the soft furnishings are looking very tired.
The location is great - Seaview is a lovely, sleepy little village with a fantastic beach. We greatly enjoyed walking the beach with the kids, all the way along to Ryde...and being a foody kind of family, we must mention the lovely Village Community Shop, the Seaview Deli for scrumptious sandwiches, the really friendly service, great food and fantastic drinks at The Old Fort and for a very good „posher“ kind of evening out, The Three Buoys, just great!
