All your needs are catered for, it is comfortable and very user friendly. This apartment is located in the non commercial area of Freshwater and is a beautiful quiet haven. The views are wonderful. Easy to get to anywhere on the island. We were here in April and although not hot we had sunshine everyday. If we were to return to the Isle of Wight we would definitely stay here again.

It was clean and had everything you needed from a pint of milk and biscuits on arrival to buckets and spades for the children. The balcony is great for sunbathing. As it is on the top floor the roof is sloping in places. This wasn't a proble for my youngest as she is only 9. Not sure what the smoking policy is for the whole building and whether the other 9 flats are holiday homes or permanent residences, as it was often a bit smoky when sitting on the balcony.
