“Good Family Stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We felt instantly comfortable with the owner who is very friendly and warm. He came instantly to our aids when we had an issue with the usage of shower. Steve show us around the house and giving us advise to move around Shanklin. Good location with parking. The house is clean and tidy. Perfect for family who would need to prepare simple food to start off the day. Most importantly, it is an affordable n clean place to live in. Would definitely recommended

“An absolute gem.”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is my first time to the island and wow I was not disappointed....on arrival we had a warm welcome off the proprietor who showed us around the apartment and garden, yes your own private decked area which is some what of a beautiful sun trap, also included is off road parking.
The apartment did not disappoint it has recently been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard, offering all mod cons including a washing machine but hey who does their washing on holidays!! This was a 2 bedroom spacious apartment with the most comfortable master bed I've slept in and a separate room for the kids with bunks, not forgetting the leather sofa which doubled as a bed if needed. Each room has been fitted with freeview and inter net ready televisions, so no squabbling over who's watching what!!! The location of this apartment is perfect it's just a minutes walk to beautiful Shanklin beach, with some of the most amazing views over the ocean, bars and entertainment were plentiful along the coast to. Another 15-20 minute walk takes you into nearby sandown which is a must, the gentle walk takes you past some beautiful coast line and some very quirky beach huts, keep your eyes open for the named huts....hilarious!! The apartment is also close to the train station and Shanklin town centre which holds some beautiful quirky shops. There's nothing I can fault about this apartment or location, all in all I would say it was a perfect get away. To the proprietor Gwen and Steve, thank you for your warm hospitality you've now gained a loyal visitor we will look forward to seeing you soon :)

“Lovely modern flat”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My partner and I stayed here for 5 days and we're really happy to have found it. The location is a short walk to the beach, train station and bus route.
The flat itself is newly refurbished and has a lovely homely feel to it, the kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom has a nice shower and the whole place was spotless. The bed was extremely comfortable and I'm fussy with my bed so this is high accolade!! The outside space was a real sun trap even in March.
Gwen is such a warm and welcoming host with nothing being too much trouble for her, she recommended a few local restaurants and made suggestions on places to visit.
I would have no hesitation to recommend this delightful flat to anyone and will definitely be coming back.
