Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Ventnor - Beach Holme
Large 4 double bedroom Villa (sleeps 8) + 3 bath/shower rooms.
Beach Holme is our very loved, family holiday home. It is in a stunning location on the beach front in the beautiful village of Bonchurch. Being on a private cul de sac which finishes a few yards away on the beach it is quiet and safe. From the front of the property there are uninterrupted, constantly changing, sea views and there is nothing like sleeping to sound of the waves. Our property is situated on Monks Bay, one of the Islands best kept secrets, with it's mixture of sand, pebbles, delightful rock pools and safe swimming. Bonchurch is known for it's temperate climate and during a hot week you may not want to stray from this perfect spot. As well as a perfect spot for that summer holiday, it is an excellent base for out of season breaks. The island is well known for its mild spring, autumn and winters which are wonderful for excellent walking, discovering cosy pubs and catching up on quality time.
Located next to Beach Holme we also own The Boathouse (property no 12613) which sleeps 2 adults.

About Louise Smith
Years of traveling far and wide with my job and many adventurous holidays with my husband means I have stayed in all sorts of accommodation around the world from basic tents in Kenya to incredible luxury resorts in the Far East, from city hotels in New York to Country Manors in Wales . Now living on a farm in the UK with our 2 children, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 4 chickens it's always pleasure to escape to the sea.
Louise Smith purchased this villa in 2002
Why Louise Smith chose Ventnor
We were lucky enough to buy Beach Holme when we were living in London and looking for a seaside place to enjoy as a family. Our only criteria was that we wanted to find somewhere right on the sea - along with it being beautiful and quiet, away from any built up areas! It so happens my own great, great grandparents were islanders and we have a good family history of coastguards there.
What makes this villa unique
There's no question that being so close to the sea is Beach Holme's biggest lure. The predictability of the tides along with the ever changing moods of the water makes for a very special place to stay. In Winter it can be snug with the wood burning fire, a safe place to watch waves crashing into the sea wall and salt spray flying high into the air, while in Summer a bay of cool, blue gently laps at the sand. And while I may mention it many times over, there really is nothing like sleeping to the sound of the waves.
