Clean, well maintained and well appointed. The owners went out of their way to ensure that everything was OK but did not intrude on our stay in any way.The "hidden" garden is truly amazing - the beautiful lake with it's wonderful wildlife - including tantalising glimpses of a kingfisher, a hummingbird hawkmoth, and the wonderful red squirrels - and the charming walled garden full of vibrant colour. Access to the Coastal Path is close by and we can recommend the clifftop walk along to Steephill Cove [and the Crab Shed crab pasties!] as well as the slightly more challenging walk down to the deserted beach below the Old Park Hotel. Ventnor town is close by with great fish and chips [and divine fresh fish] from the Haven Fishery and a friendly local pub at the Crab & Lobster Tap. Don't forget to take your walking shoes - but if the steep hills defeat you there are plenty of good parking spots with sea views. Our 5th visit to the Island in 15 months - we would recommend, without hesitation, the Boathouse and the Isle of Wight - we will return!

Mostly thanks to the great apartment which is situated in idyllic Ventnor. The apartment has great atmosphere and is nicely furbished. The apartment is clean and offers all necessities a family needs for a luxurious self-catering holiday. We enjoyed cooking the fresh fish from the local fishery which is only a 3 minute walk from the apartment. You can also find nice restaurants next to the apartment on the esplanade. We felt at home in Ventnor, because of the great apartment and the friendly owners.

Rather high tech for seniors. Great views and relaxing decor. We found parasol too heavy to use so were not able to get any shade for eating outside. Plenty of tourist information. We enjoyed wildlife and shipping.
