About Katie McAlister
We have owned our holiday villa on the Isle of Wight for several years now and thoroughly enjoy everything that the island is able to offer, both young and old. The variety of experiences that the Isle of Wight offers visitors is unbeatable and I cannot highlight enough to people coming to stay the very many interesting places to visit, wonderful experiences and activities available to all - we really hope to be able to share our suggestions so that all our guests can enjoy their stay on the island, taking home many wonderful memories for years to come.
Katie McAlister purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Katie McAlister chose Ryde
The villa is located in such a beautiful waterside setting, surrounded by woodland, offering guests a pleasant and relaxing stay. Conveniently located at Wootton Creek, the villa is just a 5-minute drive from the ferry port at Fishbourne. The village of Wootton Bridge is just a 7-minute walk away, where a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs can be found. The woodland surrounding the villa offers a number of public footpaths, some of which lead down to local beaches. Furthermore, all of the island's main attractions are within easy reach.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is unique in its layout, with 2 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and it is ideal for families. The master double bedroom, with ensuite shower-room/WC, has lovely views from the impressive 18-foot windows to the front, whilst the twin bedroom is well-placed adjacent to the family bathroom. There is private decking to the front with table and chairs offering guests the opportunity to relax whilst enjoying the views of the Creek. There are also picturesque gardens located to the front of the villa with space for children to play.

Comfortable but grubby.
Great location! Comfortable beds and sofa. Needed to clean a few things before using and all things with battery’s needed new ones. Clock,torch and remote. No light in fridge and although we bought some bulbs the problem is obviously a wiring one. Some windows either locked or jammed so unable to air away the very musty smell which was not covered by the two reed infusers which had been placed inside.
Katie seems a lovely lady but her cleaners/ housekeeper seems to be doing her no favours. No WiFi sadly.
Dear Sue, I am sorry that you were not happy with your stay. When we spoke at the start of your trip you didn't mention any issues to me, as I would have happily sorted these out for you to the best of my ability.
Spare batteries are kept in the lounge drawer for the remote control/clock if needed. There is a window key attached to the main door keyring, so you are able to unlock the windows as you require (windows are kept locked when guests are not staying for security reasons). Indeed the fridge light does not come on and replacing the bulb does not work either - no other guests have complained about this so this fridge/freezer has been kept as it operates very well otherwise.
The cleaners have apologised for your dissatisfaction - it was the end of the season for them and they had a couple of illnesses in the week runnning up to your stay, so being short staffed, they have apologised saying that their standards may well have slipped. They have assured me that this will not happen again.
The majority of my guests have a wonderful stay and love the charm of the villa with its beautiful views over the Creek. I am sorry that you were not happy there, although I am pleased to hear that you found the beds and sofas to be comfortable. Thank you for your feedback. I do hope that you will come back to the island to stay again.
With my best regards,
Perfect location, perfect host, perfect holiday, perfect villa

Everything you need, lovely villa
Great location- literally 5 mins from the ferry
Great 2 bed place, ideally located to explore the island. Katie couldn’t have been more helpful. Highly recommend!
Great base in a great location
This is a nicely set out holiday home in a wonderful quiet location overlooking the creek. A great base to explore the local area and good parking when you return at the end of the day.
Shops pubs & food are all within walking distance. Would book it again.
Lovely villa, great holiday!
We stayed for a week in June - 4 adults, 1 toddler and 2 small dogs. There was plenty of room for all of us, the villa has a great layout; we were very comfortable. Great location, great views. The weather was excellent, but the villa would've been more than adequate had we had rainy days as it was spacious enough and well equipped. There was plenty to see and do nearby, with lots of great restaurants / cafe's within 15 minutes drive. We highly recommend Quar Abbey & Briddlesford Lodge Farm Cafe's for truly excellent food and service, and only 5 minutes down the road.
We didn't manage to cram everything we wanted to do in just the one week, so we will definitely be returning in the near future!
Great location, well laid out accommodation.
