Excellent communication from the owners before arrival, and Emma met us at the property, and showed us round, she was really friendly and very helpful throughout our stay. This apartment is fantastic, there are 3 bedrooms, one large double with en suite shower, another double, and a room with bunk beds. There is a family bathroom with lovely bath, a very well equipped kitchen with everything you need, a dining area, amazing lounge, and a really good sized balcony, with the best views ever, you can watch the waves, people watch, and we had great weather during our week- from snow flurries to sun, so saw some great sunsets! The apartment is probably one of the cleanest, well presented place we have stayed in. The location is also excellent, just step out of the door, and there is a great, level walk to the right to Shanklin, which is suitable for all abilities, and if you walk to the left you can visit the pier, sandown shops, and the zoo, or just walk along the beach. There are all of the main supermarkets not too far away, theres a big Tesco, lidl, and in sandown theres a sainsburies local. This is a beautiful rental in an amazing location, we loved our holiday here!

The holiday park itself is well situated within easy assess to the nearby town/beach, Sandown (walking distance). The chalet is dog friendly, good walks straight from the site. We visited this chalet in mid winter and probably didn't see the site at its best, but although the chalet was excellent the site looked a little run down. But well worth a visit and great value.

It's been well thought out and everything you will need is there. Everything worked as it should and it was nice and peaceful. I should also mention we were allowed to take our small dog with us which is one of the reasons we chose the place. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again and the rates are extremely competitive when you bear in mind it's only a short walk to the beach.
