“It does exactly what it says on the tin....an idyllic Hideaway!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Had a wonderful Easter weekend at The Hideaway in Bonchurch with my wife for our first wedding anniversary. If you're thinking of booking, just do it...the accommodation is perfect, really cosy, modern inside with great sea views and everything has been thought of. The location is simply stunning and Bonchurch is lovely. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Definitely recommend!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

It's a shame this vacation rental hasn't got more reviews! Communication when booking was good, property is in quite a secluded location and the road in is a bit rough with pot holes but nothing un passable. Got warned that it could be a bit tricky to find but the directions given were great and found it first time. Downstairs double bedroom and good sized bathroom both really tastefully done, the shower is great and heated floor a nice touch! Upstairs is a really cosy open plan bathroom and living room, enough there for a little cottage retreat. Log burner is great. You can walk down to the sea front from the villas and the local town is about 15 minute walk - really pretty too. You can see the sea from the living room window and with the windows open at night you can hear the sea from inside which is nice :) Would've liked some a little info on how to use the log burner as it took us a few go's! A welcome pack might be quite nice with local restaurant and tourist attraction recommendations too. But that's just nitpicking to be honest! If you're looking for a nice seaside getaway with your partner, give this a go, it's great!

“A very tastefully decorated and cosy coastal retreat”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The description and pre-arrival information was spot on. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and everything we needed for self catering purposes for a week was provided.The log burner really warmed up the place on the cooler nights.Being 2 minutes from a quiet sandy beach was lovely.
It would be very easy to stay at the Hideaway with plenty of food and drink and have the log burner going for a whole week.There is so much to do and see on foot as well by car.

Management Response
13 Mar 2013
Thank you for the suggestions. We have now insulated the window surrounds in the bedroom and hung a heavy curtain over the door. We have had a long spell of unusually cold easterly winds this year but with the extra insulation, woodburner, central and underfloor heating, the Hideaway will now be toasty year round.
