Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

....but it did start to feel like a second home, it really did feel that relaxing, and, had we been able, we would have loved to stay longer! This chalet has had a high quality refurbishment, there is a picture book of the process in the chalet along with lots of other useful and interesting information books and leaflets. It was very clean and felt comfortable throughout and accommodates 3 people well although a little more storage would be a benefit for people staying for longer periods, this did not cause a problem for a two week stay. Parking was always available and we were always able to park right next to the chalet. We found the chalet to be in a good position generally although there are no leisure facilities on site it is a beautiful short stroll down into Yaverland/Sandown or a slightly longer stroll up to Culver Down. The owners were both friendly and helpful and communication was good during booking and when we arrived and they provide a pleasant welcome pack of goodies. Summary - Pros: Cleanliness, comfort, atmosphere, peaceful and picturesque location, excellent bathroom, parking, price/value
Cons:storage space, if you're going for a longer stay and like us, take the kitchen sink!

Thanks for this cracking good review, Craig. We're sorry we didn't get to meet you during your stay (I tried a few times, but the Island had lured you away). We're pleased you like the chalet, quite a lot of blood sweat and tears went into the refurb! And we'll think hard about extra storage, thanks for the thought. We're pleased you enjoyed the Island and we'd love you to stay again. I&D.
