“Wonderful”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was one beautiful relaxing holiday bungalow, on a great little site with some wonderful outstanding views just out of the front door. With the small shop on site that carried a fare stock so one did'nt have to go far for what one needed.
All in all Sunnyside was an out standing Bungalow with everything on hand for a wonderful holiday for us all,

[We would like to thank Barbara and her husband for having a wonderful Bungalow for our holiday stay].

“Cosy, well equipped bungalow, right next to the sea.”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Booking was easy & hassle-free. The bungalow is warm, comfortable & attractive, it has everything you need. The view & sound of the sea so close by is it's best feature, you can see right along the shore to The Needles. The site is clean & spacious, very quiet, although the season hasn't quite got going yet. No kids around this week but it's Bank Holiday weekend next week.
The electric oven looks complicated so I didn't use it. The ceramic hob is easy to use.
There's a very good bus service run by Vectis, you can get almost anywhere on the No.7, but it's a long walk up Monks Lane to get to the bus stop. Doing this trek every day (& back) has been a penance. Once you're actually on the bus the attractions of the island are easily accessible.
I would stay here again as it's a little haven to come back to after a day out. The owners are considerate & welcoming.

“A Real Gem!”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you are looking for a fantastic location, views and a wonderful property, look no further!
The property is absolutely fantastic, has everything you need to be comfortable throughout your stay and has wonderful views of the sea. I work in a very high pressured job and this was my first time at this part of the Isle of Wight and I will be returning. I really did switch off. The owners are also very nice and helpful.
I hope you have a fantastic break like we did!

“A fabulous little bungalow.”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The bungalow was exactly as shown on the site, very comfortable and well equipped. We arrived to find the bungalow warm, welcoming and spotless. Barbara was very welcoming and came over to see how we'd settled in and was very helpful. The beach was seconds from the front door, it could do with a bit of a tidy up after a choppy winter but really it didn't detract from this super little holiday home which would make an excellent base for families wanting to explore the island and particularly the more rugged Freshwater area.

“Comfortable well equipped accommodation with stunning sea view.”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This really is an excellent place to stay. It has a fantastic south-facing sea view over Colwell Bay and The Needles. It is very well furnished and very well equipped. The nearby beach is less than five minutes walk. I have stayed here for several visits now of 2 to 3 weeks in Spring and Autumn. For me, it is an excellent base for my fossil-collecting and sea-fishing trips, but equally it is an excellent location for family holidays too. WiFi Internet access is continuously provided and is included in the rental price! A really comfortable residence; highly recommended.
