A lovely house. We stayed for the weekend with our two young children and had a fantastic time. The house is exceptionally well equipped and in a very quiet location with direct access to the beach at Gurnard. We have used many rental properties over the years, but we have never been provided such a range of goods on arrival - not only tea, coffee and milk but incredible sausages, bacon, eggs, cakes and gifts for the kids (big thank you Carol). There are a couple of pubs in walking distance and a fabulous restaurant, the Little Gloster, all of whom made us very welcome and our child friendly. The house is very spacious and funished to a very high standard, with all mod-cons including large flat screen TV and fast wifi. There are great views from the living room, kitchen and rear bedrooms and the garden is lovely, with a number of hidden corners. Overall, exceptional and highly recommended. We hope to visit again.

“A Little piece of Heaven on Earth!”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very sad to have to leave this wonderful Haven last Friday. We were a Family of 7 with age range from 15 to 75 and a 7 month old puppy. When we arrived the previous Friday the welcome we had from Carol made as feel at home immediately. The house is set in a wonderful location with an amazing treasure trove of a garden that leads down to the beach giving fantastic views across the Solent towards Cowes. Although the weather wasnt as good as we would have preferred, the house made this more bearable and we were able to spend a lot of time together in the spacious Lounge and dining Rooms, playing games and generally spending quality time together. Carol is most definitely a wonderful Hostess and had left us with an array of gifts ranging from beautiful home made cakes, preserves, cream and some much appreciated essentials. The house offers everything imaginable to ensure that the time spent in it is of a high quality and memorable. We were all very sad to leave this remarkable House and and will most definitely be returning as soon as we can!!! Thank you Carol.

“Family holiday and birthday”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great place for young and not so young. Carol made the whole family welcome, with home made delicious cakes (one of which was a birthday cake), fizz, eggs and tasty sausages and gifts for grandchildren. The Beach House was a wonderful and comfortable place to stay, the garden was amazing, going all the way down to the sea. Has been recommend to friends and colleagues.

“This house is exceptional”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We have just returned from celebrating my Father's 70th at The Beach House & it was a truly magical weekend. The house is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully presented & feels like home the moment you walk in. Carol, the owner, was lovely to deal with & her lemon drizzle cake was delicious & a lovely touch on arrival.
We all loved the beach at the end of the garden, especially the children who had an absolute ball.
This house is exceptional & we cannot recommend it enough. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

“Couldn't get any better”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

From outside to in, nothing is lacking. Couldn't be more like a Beach House with it's clean, sea-side look outside to it's beach theme inside, with lovely 'beachy' decor, furnishings and pictures. The whole house and garden feels an adventure - wonderful secret path at bottom of garden leading onto beach. Views to die for across the solent. Grandchildren were enthralled by it all and loved the crabbing nets, buckets and spades and gifts left for them. Spotlessly clean, lovely bedrooms and a real 'home made' cake plus lovely sausages from Carol's pigs. What more could we want - nothing …..
Would definitely recommend this holiday home to everyone.
