This stylish house built in the 1860’s almost takes you back in time. It has been converted into a fantastic holiday home exuding a happy house atmosphere. Hosting six highly individually bedrooms, all with comfy beds and Egyptian cotton linen.
Mareeba is well known for its privacy, yet fantastic location. Perched on a hill yet only a five minute stroll away from the world famous old village and Shanklin’s two beaches.
With its eclectic collection of books, private library (can you find the hidden compartents?) and furniture, the house is often a talking point.
Fancy bacon and eggs in the morning? then this kitchen will not disappoint… with electric double oven, gas hob, dishwasher (for the cleaning up!) integrated fridge, fridge/freezer in the gym, dishwasher and large professional washing machine and separate tumble dryer, with adjoining breakfast/TV room, the fun begins!
Sandpit and swings for the children and a large garden (Mareeba is situated within 0.5acres), there is plenty of fun for the grown ups too, late night barbecues, the gym with weights, treadmill, fat burning machine and dips in the secluded hot tub.
If the outdoor air gets a little chilly, then there are home comforts in the lounge and dinning room. With a fire in the lounge.
Come visit. We promise, we will not disappoint.
Mareeba is very well situated, lots of amenities are within walking distance of the house. Shanklin's Big Mead park with play area and duck pond is an 8 minute walk away. The Old village with pubs, restaurants and shops is a 10 minute walk from the house. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk, dependant on which route you take.
Shanklin has two beaches; 'Small Hope Beach' and 'Hope Beach.' Small Hope Beach eventually meets Sandown Beach and has many beach huts available for hire, and a small cafe. Hope Beach stretches in the opposite direction. Above Hope Beach is the esplanade which boasts some traditional seaside attractions including an amusement arcade, a crazy golf course, and a children's play area, with slides, ball pools, bouncy castles, rigging, swings etc. available to be hired for a childs birthday party. There is a cliff lift from the seafront to the top of the cliff, a putting course, several cafes and restaurants and pubs, and a large, clean beach.
The main shopping centre consists of two roads, Regent Street and High Street, which together comprise the largest retail area in the south of the Isle of Wight; significant for tourists but also as an amenity for residents. The Old Village, at the top of Shanklin Chine.
Near Regent Street are the town's two main supermarkets, the Co-op and Lidl. In Regent Street itself are many local shops, including two arts and crafts shops, several clothing and sports shops, three newsagents and three bakeries. The High Street also has some local shops, but is dominated by tourist shops and restaurants.
Shanklin railway station is the terminus of the Island Line from Ryde.
Bus services to nearby towns and suburbs are run by Southern Vectis and Wightbus, mainly on routes 2, 3, and 23, principally from the bus stands at The CO-OP. Destinations served include Newchurch, Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Ventnor and Winford. In the summer, an open top bus route called 'The Sandown Bay Tour' is run, serving the main tourist areas of Shanklin and running to Sandown. Worth a ride!
Shanklin has one theatre, Shanklin Theatre, which is just off the top end of the High Street. We have viewed some fantastic plays here.
