Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Freshwater - Bay Side, Freshwater Bay

Luxury 2 bedroom/2 bathroom seafront apartment in Freshwater Bay

Bay Side is stunningly located right on the beach at Freshwater Bay, with panoramic sea views. Rated 5* by Visit Britain this luxury modern apartment boasts 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite), fully fitted luxury kitchen and the most amazing spacious lounge/diner with spectacular sea and beach views. French doors give access to the private terrace overlooking Freshwater Bay and a gate leads directly onto the beach.

Location, location, location! This apartment really is as close to the sea as you can get without getting wet! Quiet and peaceful but just a stone's throw from 3 local restaurants/pubs, tea room, golf course, shops, & bus stop and also right on the beach for swimming & water sports.

Freshwater Bay, on the scenic West Wight coastline has Tennyson's Trail right on the doorstep, perfect for walkers and a golf course within walking distance.

With on-site parking and a bus stop right outside this is the perfect place from which to explore the lovely IOW

Location! Location! Location!: Bay Side is a ground floor apartment with direct access to the beach from the French windows in the lounge/diner. Spectacular views and sunsets can be enjoyed from everywhere you sit in the lounge and the private seafront terrace is perfect for those long lazy summer evenings enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Sit indoors with the French doors open listening to the sound of the waves rolling up the beach and dine looking out to sea from the lovely dining area.

Make no mistake this location is a one-off for a self-catering apartment, and it is actually right on the beach rather than just having a sea view.

The apartment is modern, very bright, spacious and stylish with a tiled floor throughout. It is decorated in a contemporary 'holiday' style with quality furniture, soft furnishings, beds, rugs, curtains and sofas so as to be comfortable but stylish. A modern fireplace in the lounge gives extra warmth in the winter and there is a very efficient gas central heating system for colder months and plenty of hot water for baths and showers

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was more than we expected. The photos don't do it justice. Attention to detail is spot-on and we felt very welcomed. The cleaning lady was a lovely lady too! We will return! S & R, Devon

Best Holiday Flat Ever

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most super holiday here, it was wonderful to walk through the front door and immediately see the quality and care that had gone into this property.We knew at once that we had chosen well.
Everywhere was truly immaculate and so well equipped, we really couldn't believe our luck at finding it.
The icing on the cake was looking through the french doors at that view, to be able to even sit inside and still have this fabulous outlook.
We had a great time exploring the island and Osborne House is a must.There are some lovely walks directly from the flat ,it was great not having to use the car every day.
Most evenings we ate on the patio, but had a couple of excellent meals in The Red Lion. We shall certainly be making a return visit and would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful Apartment - Wonderful Views

  • 5 out of 5
Mum and I decided this year to have a "Beach" holiday but with a bit of luxury and this apartment was a wonderful choice. Having stayed at Lesley's great cottage in the Cotswolds I knew that this apartment was going to be of a great standard, very comfortable and also very clean and I wasn't disappointed.

There are wonderful views out over the sea from the lounge and there was always something going on for my Mum who is in her late 70's to sit and watch, either from the apartment or just by walking the very few steps down to the beach.

This is a lovely part of the island, less busy and with less people than the Eastern side which for us was great. There are shops that sell all you probably need for a week in Freshwater or if you really can't live without something there are big supermarkets and a large M&S in Ryde.

Lesley is a pleasure to deal with and always replies very quickly and will go out of her way to be helpful.

We stayed in early September and the apartment was warm and filled with sunlight all day. The double glazing is so good that I would love to return in the winter and watch the waves crashing about knowing that I was warm and snug inside.

If you want to visit the Island but away from the frenetic tourist activity then I would most definitely recommend Bay Side. We loved it.

Stunning apartment with fantastic views

  • 5 out of 5
A beautifully furnished apartment, very clean with thoughtful welcome gifts from the owner. Easy access to car ferry in Yarmouth - Freshwater is a quaint seaside location, with superb walks along coastal paths. Well stocked store short drive away. We had a fantastic, relaxing stay at Bay Side and reluctantly had to leave when our week was over - would gladly swop my flat for this apartment, as the facilities and provisions were far superior to my own! Good communication with the owner. 5 stars are probably not enough! Will definitely recommend this apartment and the location to my friends and hopefully I'll be back one day :o)

Bay View Apartment, Freshwater Bay

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is really lovely, I am very picky in my choice of holiday home, and this one more than met my criteria. There was a welcome card, box of chocolates, and bottle of apple juice waiting for us, which was a lovely caring touch from Lesley, and very much appreciated. The apartment is very well equipped, we had everything we needed and more. The ensuite bathroom was lovely, and my 86 year young Mum was delighted with the bath in her bathroom, she can't use her bath at home, but she had no problem with this one. The rooms are tastefully decorated and all colour co-ordinated, it felt like a real home, rather than just a holiday apartment.
The local pub, the Red Lion, does lovely meals, and has character. There is a photographic museum nearby, and lost of walks. On the road into Ventnor there is a pearl factory, my husband stayed in the car! Ventnor is lovely, with a fish shop at the end of the promenade, where the local catch is brought in every day, and there are some interesting shops.
The Amazon adventure was extremely good, I am not normally interested in zoos, but this was a little bit different, and very interesting. There is also a huge garden centre next door.
I love the Isle of Wight, and staying in Bay view made for a wonderful week of relaxation and rest, we will be back!

My Stay last September

  • 5 out of 5
Excellant holiday location especially if you do not wish to travel around the Island but stay at the appartment and enjoy the privacy, superb views from the private pateo and the joys of Freshwater. A visit to Newport will provide a good day out and shopping opportunities for food(M&S and Morrissons) or the large M&S clothes dept. Stocking up for the week saves time for the eesentials.The local Freshwater
Co-OP is extremely well stocked for day to day essentials with an excellant range of most items you expect to find in your own local shop.
The appartment is superbly furnished and with all the facilities to reduce the time taken with the chores if not eating out.The quality of all the furnishing is top class but at the same time it is easy to keep tidy and clean. Thoroughly recommended.

Location

Location

Car: not necessary

Freshwater Bay is located on the 'dinosaur' coast of the Island and adjacent to Tennysons Down with fine walks in all directions, yet it is only a 15 minute drive to Newport, the Island's capital. The apartment offers some of the most dramatic views on the island and is only a par 4 from Freshwater Bay Golf Club (where you can 'pay and play').

Bay Side is the perfect quiet and peaceful sea/beachfront spot to relax, recharge the batteries, sunbathe, watch boats or just have a nice glass of wine and watch the sun go down in the sea over the Bay. Or maybe you prefer to enjoy water sports in the Bay - swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing, fishing, canoing or walk the coastal footpaths or a round of golf.

Sightseeing and fishing boat trips are available at nearby Yarmouth Harbour and all the tourist attractions, towns and villages are all easily accessible.

Take a trip on the Open Top Bus which passes by the apartment - you can hop on and off wherever the fancy takes you.

Other Activities: Boat trips, sea fishing trips, ghost walks, guided walks, fossil hunting

Golf: Perfect location for a golfing break. Freshwater Bay Golf course is a short stroll away. Breathtaking scenery can be enjoyed from this spectacular course perched on the cliff-top overlooking the Bay. Playing a round here is an unforgettable experience! The Island has a number of other good quality golf courses all within a short drive.

Good restaurant and tea-rooms and pub all within a very short walk in the Bay. We have outside table and chairs on the terrace overlooking the Bay where there is outside lighting to enjoy meals later into the evening as you watch the sun go down over the sea. The sitting room has a flat screen TV, DVD & CD player and books, wi-fI, magazines, DVDs. CDs, games and jigsaws to keep you amused, but mostly you will be watching the waves rolling into the Bay from the comfort of the two luxury leather sofas (one with recliner). The apartment is ground-floor and is therefore suitable for older guests
