It is a beautiful old house in a quiet culdesac road, yet within minutes walk of the excellent and attractive restaurants, and pubs of old Shanklin village. Would recommend the local fish and chip shop, delicious! The village Inn pub was great for atmosphere, good range of real ale, wine and excellent food. A short walk down the hill to the bottom of the Chine takes you to two other great pubs. "The Chine" with, again excellent and plentiful meals and a beer drinker's paradise for range and quality of real ales. The "Fisherman.s cottage", right on the beach, is also to be recommended on a sunny day with more good real ales and good basic pub grub. The main shopping area of Shanklin is only 10 minutes walk away. The bus stop is 25 metres from the house with good, modern bus (many have USB internet and charging connections at every seat!) connections to all parts of the island. We only used the car for 1 outing. If you are, like me, into real ale, another gem is "The Volunteer" in Ventnor. You probably would not find it by accident, but it is well worth the effort. We cooked and ate in at the house on several nights and the kitchen was well equipped for gourmet cooking and dining. Gorgeous, if fragile, wine glasses which with great care, were still all intact at the end of the week. Only a few small minor niggles. Bathroom and master bedroom doors would not close properly and a few light bulbs were blown. Thanks Nicole for a superb and relaxing stay. Pete & Pat Taylor and friends

It was extremely clean and had everything you could want for a good holiday. It has its own reserved parking spot which is particularly useful, particularly, I would think, in high season. Please note that the flat is on the second floor and everything has to be carried upstairs. We will definately stay again
