Toni's flat was ideal. The bus stops directly opposite. It also meant that we could catch the bus to all parts of the island which we did on numerous occasions. The flat is very central and one can walk to shops and restaurants with ease as well as gain access to the beach and promenade .There were some splendid walks along the front and the Botanical Gardens where within reach by foot as well as the little village of Bonchurch. Toni left lots of information of walks in the area. Upper Ventnor can be very hilly, but our flat was brilliant and we managed the steep slope down to the beach quite easily. The actual flat was great - very clean with all that one could need for a comfortable stay Tony was quite artistic and had some nice personal touches. She was also very helpful and kind. I have a slight mobility problem and the shower and toilet were down 2/3 steps. This is the only reservation I would have when recommending the flat although I managed it quite easily, it is a consideration for someone less mobile than myself. I did love the shower however which was easily accessible and I loved Toni's fluffy warm towels. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this flat. Loved it!

Phillippa and Stephen were both extremely approachable and helpful. The boathouse is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The garden and grounds are beautiful, we were granted full access for the duration of our stay. If you are looking for a peaceful, tranquil place, this is ideal. Conversely the Island lends itself easy to get around. We had a good time, a good memory. Thanks Phillippa and Stephen
