Beach Holme is a lovely holiday house in a fantastic position. The best part of this house being how well equipped it is for small children: there is a separate large play room full of quality toys and puzzles. The small front garden is gated where the outside can be accessed safely by children. We liked the wood floors, tasteful furniture, including what appeared to be Renny Mackintosh bureau in main room. You looked from well equipped kitchen out through living area onto the sea – lovely. The main bedroom is delightful; my husband spent much time on the desk in the bay window watching the sea-bound channel crossing traffic. Bonchurch is situated right above the house and is full charm - you need to be mobile to do the climb, as well as to walk along the seawall into Ventnor.
However we were disappointed to find no sandy beach in front of the house as pictures would suggest. It might also be noted that you might think the entire house was yours, but the top has been turned into a self-contained apartment, and we were hearing footsteps above at 6 am. There are maintenance issues and in particular the lovely white front veranda was in desperate need of repair and painting. (The mouse whizzing into the store under the stairs might also give concern.)
