“Very comfortable home from home with lovely sea views”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for a week in May 2015. Two families with young children. Plenty of room to accommodate us all. House has everything we needed and beds were very comfy. The garden terrace although has steps up to it is a lovely place to sit and take in the sea views and a real sun trap but it has gates to keep the little ones contained. Although a road does run next to property and is quite busy during day time it does quietens down hugely come the evening. Property backs onto paths leading to many walks on the Downs above Ventnor - worth a look as great views. We all very much enjoyed our time here.

“Cosy and comfortable New Year break”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

Very enjoyable New Year Week. Very comfortable, lovely comfy settees and open fire. Home from home. Xmas tree, decs and wine provided too! Lots of space and rooms for two families to enjoy one another's company, and time out too. Great to have a large dining room for us to have celebratory meals in. And we particularly loved the verandah, and saw the New Year in there and watched the fireworks that the locals kindly put on for us! The owner was incredibly accommodating and had the bedrooms all set up for the children's individual sleeping arrangements. Would definitely recommend and would definitely revisit.

“Warm welcoming and extremely comfortable house.”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The house is extremely comfortable with all the facilities that you need for a most enjoyable stay. It's in a great location and within easy walking distance of Ventor Town Centre and the Sea Front, where there is a pleasently surprising number of different places to eat and drink. We were a party of 8 and the house accomodated us all very easily and comfortably.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We have stayed at this property several times over the last few years and have always felt so 'at home' here! It is a real family home of character - where so much thought and attention has been made to make our stay of the utmost comfort. Each bedroom has its own charm and the beds are really comfortable with luxurious bedding. There has been great attention to detail in every room and the location, snuggled into St Boniface Down looking out over the east end of Ventnor towards the sea - is truly glorious! The terraced garden is a real suntrap and a perfect place to sit and relax and enjoy the location. I can truly recommend this property to anyone and know for sure that they will enjoy their stay as much as we have.
