Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Shanklin

Superb apartment in a super location. Close to beach and old village.

This modern home is a luxury apartment offering every comfort for the discerning holidaymaker. Leather sofas, satellite TV, built-in kitchen appliances and to top it all a fantastic sea view through the patio windows that lead on to the large balcony.

The stunning lounge is furnished with your comfort in mind. It has satellite TV, DVD player, radio/CD and ipod player, whilst the modern kitchen and dining area is equipped for your convenience. Built-in appliances include electric oven, 4 ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. With a microwave and all other kitchen utensils supplied, all you need do is turn up and relax.

See further down this page for more information about our lovely apartment, its location and what it has to offer.

Continued from top of page: Along the hall are 2 large bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed plus plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for your holiday outfits. It has the added luxury of its own en-suite. The second bedroom is a large room with two single beds, again, having more than ample space for your holiday wardrobe. Completing the apartment is a large, fully tiled bathroom having bath as well as a separate shower cubicle.

Outside the apartment is an appointed car space and, for your enjoyment, a communal garden adjoining the cliff top.

The apartment itself is in a super location in Shanklin, recently named one of the sunniest resorts in the British Isles. Being only 5 minutes walk from this olde world village with its thatched cottages and tea-rooms, 4 minutes walk from the entrance to Shanklin Chine and 3 minutes walk from the path down to the safe, sandy beach, the only problem you’ll have on holiday is deciding where to spend the day.

You’ll be spoilt for choice in the evenings, too, with a number of good quality pubs and restaurants in the village, as well as the usual ‘take-aways’. If you’d rather travel further afield, the island is home to some top class eateries where you may find yourself dining alongside some well-known celebrities.

Why Owner chose Shanklin

Shanklin is our favourite place on the island because it has so much to offer - a glorious sea front with golden sands, a cliff top walk, a lovely Chine that meanders through gardens to the sea front, parks and gardens a-plenty and of course the Olde Village with all its character. Thatched tea-rooms, thatched pubs, thatched shops - it's all here, but further afield there's Godshill, a favourite tourist spot, Culver Cliff with glorious views across Sandown and Shanklin as well as St Helens and Bembridge. Cowes and Yarmouth both famous for yachting, Ventnor, a Victorian seaside resort, Sandown with its zoo on the sea front, Alum Bay with its coloured sand cliffs, The famous Needles - far too much to see in a week - its a piece of unspoilt Old England with the best sunshine record in the UK.

When we were looking to purchase a property we looked at several in Shanklin before we viewed this one. We walked into the lounge and it just had that wow factor - the view was terrific and compared to many is so spacious. We defy anyone not to be impressed when they're inside this apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Huge balcony with a great sea view - lovely to sit in the sunshine relaxing. Lounge is large and light and the bedrooms are spacious. We have never seen such a large bathroom - a bath and a separate shower cubicle and plenty of room to dance around! It also has the added luxury of an en-suite to the master bedroom.

Location is quiet yet so convenient for everywhere. We may be biased but we think its perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you for the use of your lovely apartment, it really surpassed our expectations, so clean and comfortable, a real home from home. The bedrooms are really quite spacious, particularly the master which had more than enough room for our little grandson's travel cot. My daughter-in-law was particularly taken with the power shower in the en-suite which she wanted to take home with her!

I liked very much the open-plan layout of the kitchen/dining/lounge area, again spacious, bright and airy with the two big patio doors. It was nice to cook and talk to the family at the same time, not something I can do in my small kitchen at home. No problems at all with the balcony and our little 3 year old as he was only allowed out there when we were with him and we kept the doors locked at all other times to prevent him sneaking out.

Lovely walks into Shanklin to stroll around the shops (took the short cut by the Chine) and several times down the cliff path to the huge beach.

We had a fantastic mini-break and were so lucky with the weather, especially the Saturday and Sunday, when it was glorious. Drove to Godshill village which was so beautiful and had a delicious lunch at The Essex followed by a cream tea at the place with the big garden down the road (cant remember the name).

Will definitely be coming back again, for longer next time. Can't think why anyone would want to stay in B&B really, when they can rent a whole apartment for less and get so much more for their money.

Kind regards

Very comfortable, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect option for exploring IOW and Shanklin in particular which in our opinion was the place to be. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. Great communication from owner. Highly recommend. No guarantees for the weather though.

Great base for walking the Costal Path

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I are keen walkers so being right on the IOW Coastal Path was perfect for us, especially with close access to all the great eateries in Shanklin itself. Not quite so good for my elderly mother and aunt who struggled a bit with the hills to and from the village (The Google Map site photos do not clearly show the gradients involved). Fortunately on the last night we found the lovely restaurant in the Luccombe Hall Country Hose just 150m down the hill - ideal for the older ones!

The apartment itself was spacious, of a high standard and spotlessly clean. We would definitely consider staying there again if and when we come back to the IOW.

We used a number of the restaurants in Shanklin and can recommend the Vernon Cottage and Decades for large portions of simple food done really well. Going up a notch to something closer to fine dining we thought that 'Morgans' is worth a visit, although I did feel that the waiting staff although very friendly did let the chef down a little after all the effort he'd put into preparing the dishes. We were a little disappointed with the Village Inn which was very busy and no space between the tables making it feel very cramped. Also the food was disappointing having missed the cheese stuffing from the chicken dishes and a side salad from the crab balls.

Owner's Response: Being on the coastal path is a bonus with a walk to Ventnor and beyond, one way or Sandown and Culver Cliff, the other. There are 2 ways to walk to the village, one is best done in the light and does mean walking down and then up a short hill. The other way is one to walk in the evening and we've always thought of it as a fairly flat walk - but we're not elderly - yet - so perhaps take it for granted. Good review of the restaurants - the Village Inn has a cosy atmosphere and can get packed and is more expensive than the Crab Inn or Decades which we think are good value for money. One eatery not mentioned which all our guests who have tried it recommend it, is The Black Cat, a Thai restaurant in the village, and also the Fishermans Cottage, lovely thatched place down on the beach (literally) at the bottom of Shanklin Chine. Very good sea food.

Owner's Response: We love the view across the bay to Culver Cliff - and walking there from the apartment is one of our favourite walks. The first time we went into the apartment we thought exactly the same 'wow' and we bought it! We would like to give visitors to the island a lovely experience so they are relaxed and enjoy their stay.

Clean, comfortable, fantastic communication!

Bev has been very helpful from the onset. We were touring the island with Olympian Rebekah Wilson inspiring the kids on the island to take up sport and eat healthier.

Everything in the apartment was perfect including the complementary wine and biscuits! It's a perfect location for attractions and local pubs a stone throw away. We will be using the apartment again next year when we revisit the schools. Thank you Bev ��

Owner's Response: We were very proud to host an Olympian - and pleased that after working hard inspiring the local children our guests didn't have to walk far to get fed and watered! Just 5 minutes walk away in Shanklin olde village are many varied restaurants and pubs - English, Italian, Thai, Indian, Chinese - the choice is yours.

Super

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this apartment - thanks Bev. It had everything you needed and we felt very comfortable. The lounge/dining room was spacious and comfortable and we felt very much at home. Having two bathrooms helped with having a teenager about. We sat on the balcony a couple of times even though it was October - which was nice. Being able to walk into Shanklin was very handy and we went into the Crab pub etc. I quite missed the apartment when we got home - and the Isle of Wight of course. Thank you for a lovely week. Karen

Spacious apartment with lovely views!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything you need for a break on the island. Only a five minute walk and you are in shanklin old village with good pubs and gift shops, and a five minute walk in the other direction and you are on the seafront! Perfect location. Would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay, easily accessible via public transport and if you have a car, there's a designated parking place. Thanks for a perfect stay Bev and Tim!

Owner's Response: That's why we love this location - quiet yet handy for everything - plus a sea-view from the balcony. Located on the cliff path, left or right are lovely walks and if you don't want to venture far there is a park with cafe and bandstand within 3 minutes.

Our apartment is situated in a superb location with sea views. It is on the coastal path between Ventnor to the south and Sandown to the north. 5 min walk will take you to the old village with its thatched tea rooms and restaurants. Just down the road is Rylstone Gardens with its bandstand and also the entrance to Shanklin Chine, a truly wonderful walk through leafy glades which is illuminated during the summer evenings. At the foot of the Chine is Fishermans Cottage, the pub on the beach (which can also be reached by coastal path, just an 8 min walk from our apartment).

Buses run frequently around the island with open-topped as an option. The nearest bus stop is 2- 3 min walk down the road alongside a large open park which has its own pond and ducks.

The island has many attractions for both adults and children alike including Osborne House, the favourite seaside home of Queen Victoria.

Our apartment is an ideal base for the perfect holiday. More information at foot of page.

Other Activities: Geocaching, hang-gliding, kite surfing, theatre, various festivals and shows

Golf: Several golf courses on the island as well as pitch and putt courses. The nearest being 2 km away.
