This a truly lovely home, a wonderful place to have a relaxing holiday with incredible sea views! Well located for nearby amenities. Perfect for either families or a group of friends to stay somewhere luxurious. Lots of touches - en suite bedrooms, beautiful well equipped kitchen with everything needed. A gem in Shanklin. Highly recommend!

“I fell in love with the house!”
Reviewed 20 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A truly amazing house with fantastic views overlooking Shanklin beach! It's well placed for exploring the local area or the rest of the Island. It's well presented, immaculate and tastefully decorated on all the three floors with breathtaking views. The early morning views of the ships on the horizon, sunrises are incredible. Nice additional extras like the telescope in the lounge to appreciate the stunning views.....made our stay really enjoyable. An excellent accommodation for holidays and will definitely be coming back again. Absolutely love this place and would thoroughly recommend it for family groups without hesitation.

“Be Warned Needs Improvement for 2017 season.”

Briefly, the location and property are 5 Star and rightly so this is reflected in the price, and I am sure the whole experience would have been when The Bay was first available in 2015/16. BUT not anymore. 5 Star does not equal the following:-
Blunt and broken kitchen knives, dirty cutlery and cups, dirty greasy cooker extractor, stained cushions, broken rusty and filthy BBQ, windows which had not been cleaned for a long time. Dusty blocked extractors in the bathrooms, less than one toilet roll between 4 bathrooms. Thankfully, I did bring my own for when we arrived together with some milk and tea, there was however a bottle of wine in the fridge. Very disappointed overall.

“Perfect for large groups”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Had a brilliant 4 nights here in March but would of liked to of stayed a couple more! The house is in the perfect location looking out to sea and near enough to the beach and shops. There was plenty of room in the house for the 7 of us adults and ample bathrooms. Only issue was the hot water which kept running out so we had to fiddle with the controls on the utility room to heat it back up again! Lots to do in the isle of Wight to suit every taste. Would definitely come again and stay at 'the bay'.
