Weather perfect, house extremely comfortable, with plenty of room of all. We were a party of 9 ages between 3 and 75yrs. The children loved the garden, and my daughter loved her walk in wardrobe. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possible need. Would highly recommend a stay at this holiday home.

It exceeded our expectations and was very clean and well equipped. We had a brilliant two weeks and it was great being in easy walking distance of Small Hope beach which was a regular destination! The games room and play station kept our teenage family well entertained as did the crazy golf on the sea front. We enjoyed beach days, walking, cycling and sight seeing with everything within very easy reach. It was a real treat to leave the car at home and walk everywhere. Shanklin theatre provided a great night's entertainment and we found lots of good places to eat including the Salix cafe, Waterfront, Steamer Inn, Corner Cafe and the Coriander. We hired bikes from Sandown and did part of the Red Squirrel trail which was flat and very family friendly.The Pedlar's cafe provided a welcome break on route. We really enjoyed the Garlic Farm as there was much more to do there than expected. There were free tastings, a tractor tour around the farm, lovely walks and a brilliant shop, cafe and restaurant. We have been visiting Shanklin regularly for over ten years and we still find new things to do! Thank you Caroline for keeping us well informed during our visit and for giving us lots of useful information. We will certainly be recommending the property to family and friends.
