“Beautiful.”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a beautiful flat — stylish, modern and very well-equipped. We had good wi-fi and phone signals.

The view alone is worth the visit!

We stayed here during a mini-heatwave in July 2015. As the flat is half-way up a hill, and as all the windows face the sea, we were able to keep ourselves quite pleasantly cool whilst everyone else sweltered.

Luccombe is quite close to Shanklin, where there are plenty of pubs and restaurants. In fact, everywhere on the Isle of Wight is within easy reach if you have a car.

The 5 priory apartment was lovely. Everything you needed was there. Get location with a beautiful view from the balcony/ decking area. I would recommend anyone to go and I look forward to going there again.

“Lovely, Well Equipped Apartment”

Had a fantastic week here. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and has terrific views from the large decking area. It's a bit of a walk back up from the town but no problem if you are reasonably fit (we are both mid 50s and managed fine).

Booked this apartment through Holiday Lettings and the first thing I noticed was how caring and informative the owner was to ensure that you knew everything about the Island and the apartment. We had a tiny query whilst on holiday and he was immediately contactable and did everything he could to ensure our problem was rectified immediately. The apartment has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. We did a tour of the Island and had the best fortnight ever! The views from the decking are amazing and due to the fabulous weather we had breakfast and dinner out on the decking most days. A top quality apartment in a lovely quiet area of Shanklin.
