The cottage is clean, modern and caters perfectly towards a couple looking for a quiet home. The owner was very hospitable on our arrival, but also gave us complete privacy during our stay. There were plenty of complimentary food, drinks and toiletries left for us. The kitchen and bathrooms have every facility you'd need. Even the small details like decoration had been given careful thought and consideration. The place is only a few minutes walk from the beachfront and high street of Sandown. It really does have everything you need and more.
