“A comfortable family home”

person found this review helpful

Eight adults stayed for a family reunion in this lovely, roomy house. All 5 bedrooms were tastefully decorated and had comfy beds. The two sitting rooms were well used by us and allowed family members to engage in different activities.
The kitchen was large but the kitchen table did take up a lot of space and it was a bit of a squeeze getting to the fridge and kitchen cupboards when all were sitting at the table. Weather was gorgeous all week and we enjoyed the garden which had garden furniture, BBQ and patio heater.
The location of the was good for esplanade, beach and the high street. We rented bicycles to explore the island.
Plumbing was a bit noisy but showers had good water pressure. The one thing that we missed was a coffee maker as we all like "real" coffee

“Great house, but the garden needs some improvement”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Fairlight was a really great place to stay on the Isle of Wight. Within walking distance of the beach and the centre of Ryde. The house was clean and tidy and provided everything we needed. My only complaints would be that there wasn't a barbecue and there was supposed to be one provided, this was a real disappointment as we had planned to have a few barbecues and the weather was nice enough.

My other complaint would be that the garden was really unsuitable for small children. We had a 23 month old and a 4 year old with us. There was nothing stopping them tumbling over the concrete wall by the back door, onto the concrete path and also there were steps up to the garden which were different heights and they both fell over them quite a few times.

The garden was a great size and it was lovely to sit outside but I really wouldn't recommend taking small children.

“Loved it, Loved it, Loved it...”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2012

Me and my family visited the island and stayed at Fairlight in July 2012. The property was clean, tidy, decorated to a nice standard, very quirky. The garden was also lovely, we found some garden games i.e bats and balls in the shed and had a lovely time playing these in the sunshine. Overall, the holiday was lovely and the property made it :) ... We would love to stay again soon ...
