Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Shanklin - Mareeba

Within Walking Distance Of Shanklin's Famous Old Village & Seaside.

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.

A great place to stay for families!

  • 5 out of 5
Fantastic place! we booked the house for the whole family (3 generations) and found the place spacious and comfortable. The kids loved the garden to burn off excess energy while some of the adults relaxed in the hot tub, really nice. The house is also well equiped for all everyday needs e.g. cooking, washing etc. We would definitely stay there again!!!

Great holiday rental for a large group.

  • 5 out of 5
We have booked several rentals through VRBO and we have always been satisfied with the properties but this property was amazing! It was even better than the description and photos portrayed. The layout of the rooms enabled us to accommodate all the family comfortably while still allowing privacy, particularly as one bedroom and a shower room are downstairs. The property was extremely clean, spacious and well furnished with plenty of facilities for a large group. The whole house was bright and well furnished with lots of extras like books and toys in the children's room, and board games to play in the evenings. The garden was lovely for the children as well as being a great place to sit at any time and also to enjoy the barbeque on the outdoor seating areas. We used the hot tub and the small gym which were extras one does not expect in a holiday rental.
The situation was wonderful. The walk to the old town and the cliffs was easy and pleasant. The evening walk in the Chine was magical for the children.
The Co-op and Lidl were easy to find for grocery shopping, and we ate out at several of the pubs and even had a take away Chinese one night. Everything is easy to access with a car, but there is a bus service at the end of the road if you do not wish to travel by car. The station at Shanklin has access to the pedestrian ferry and then to Portsmouth with trains to London and other destinations.
There were many thoughtful touches such as some supplies that could be accessed in emergency, even torches in the event of a power cut. It felt like a real home from home.
The communications with the owners were friendly, prompt and efficient.
This was a special holiday for us and this house made it easy to relax and let everyone enjoy the time we spent together.
Thank you!

Lovely location, great house - perfect stay!

  • 5 out of 5
'Mareeba' is a lovely, large house that fit our 11 guests very comfortably. The kitchen is large enough for quite a few people to be cooking at once, and the kitchen and bathrooms are very well appointed. It has a large garden that's perfect for BBQs and general outdoor activities. The hot tub is also fantastic. The location is easy walking distance from Shanklin village, (which has many nice pubs and shops) Shanklin Chine, a large Co-op and the train station. We didn't have a car and we found it easy to access the island either by walking or by bus. Claire was very helpful during the booking period and on hand to answer any questions during our stay. We had a brilliant time at 'Mareeba' for my 30th, and we're already planning when we can come back again next year. Thanks Claire and Kevan!

What a great house!

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Mareeba for a week in May. The children loved the garden and us adults the hot tub. We attempted to use the gym, but thought better of it. We loved being able to walk to the restaurants and pubs in Shanklin's Old Village. Great communication from the owners Claire and Kevan, thanks for a wonderful stay. We will be back!

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.[3] 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.
