Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Ventnor - Salty Holidays

Apartment sleeps 2-4 people, close to beach and town. Dog friendly.

In the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the stunning views over the beach at Ventnor Bay. The apartment faces south on a quiet private road, with its own parking, overlooking the beach and 5 mins walk to town.

The apartment is situated in the victorian coastal town of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Famous for its mild Mediterranean style microclimate it has the highest number of sunshine hours in the UK.

With its blue flag beach, lined with pretty victorian beach huts and fantastic coastal scenery, it is perfect for families or couples and often attracts walkers, writers and artists who come in search of unspoilt views. Its quirky mix of small vintage shops and many popular restaurants offer something for everyone. Some of our apartments are also dog friendly.

The 2nd floor apartment has its own parking and independent access and has 1 family bedroom (double & bunks), bathroom, separate lounge (with pull down double bed) and a fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has fantastic sea views from both the lounge and bedroom, perfect for lying in bed and listening to the waves!

The apartment is decorated with a coastal theme and has broadband wi-fi, sky television, a dvd player and a fully equipped kitchen. Beds have comfy mattresses and new pillows and duvets. Crisp white bed linen and towels are also provided.

We have a games room, laundry room and there is also a small garden and patio overlooking the sea for guests to use.

Please note Ventnor is hilly and there are steps to all apartments so it is not suitable for those with mobility problems.

About Dawn Giles

We are a family from Hampshire who simply love the sea!

We have travelled to many places with work and for fun, but are always drawn back to the coastline for those ever changing sea views and big skies.

We lead busy lives, Guy runs his own company providing technology to local government organisations and I juggle running the apartments along with 2 children and 2 dogs, so Ventnor is somewhere we escape to whenever possible!

We have tried to give the apartments a lovely coastal feel with whitewashed walls and driftwood signs, and we have left lots of books and games for all to enjoy.

We hope you will have a fantastic time in Ventnor and would love you to hear about the best bits of your holiday.

Guy, Dawn, Zac & Amelie Giles

Why Dawn Giles chose Isle of Wight

A sunny day, a posh coffee and a sea view!

We had talked about owning a holiday home for years, and spent many hours gazing longingly in estate agents windows and searching for the right place. We fell in love with the Isle of Wight and particularly Ventnor, for its fantastic coastline and quirky shops & cafes. Finding the apartments where we could lie in bed and listen to the waves on the beach was like a dream come true.

Our children, Zac & Amelie, love finding treasures in rockpools, playing in the island paddling pool, and spending their 2ps in the arcades.

Our 2 dogs, Digby and Derek, love charging around on the beach and fetching driftwood from the sea.

Guy and I love to spend a sunny day with a good book and a posh coffee, just soaking up the sea view.

What makes this apartment unique

My best bits are:

- Enjoying a cheeky tipple on the patio whilst watching the sun reflecting off the sea

- Lying in bed listening to the waves

- Feeling the sun on my face whilst relaxing in the deck chair

- Watching the wall lizards basking in the sun on the garden wall

- Walking along the coastal path on a windy day

- Playing cricket or rounders on the beach at the end of the day

- Finding treasures in rockpools and building sandcastles

- Grabbing award winning fish and chips from the Haven fishery

- Not needing to go out anywhere, because you already have the best view in town!

Self-catering in Ventnor with superb seaviews

  • 3 of 5

Very nice location and fantastic views of the seascape and surrounding town. The apartment did exactly what it said on the tin and served the flexible purposes we had in mind, whilst providing a relaxing aspect and easy access to the town's eateries and shops. etc. Lovely walks along the sea front in both directions. The apartment was a base for us to explore the southern parts of the IoW and beyond. Personally, I won't stay self-catering again unless the place has a dishwashing machine - I do not want to spend parts of my holiday washing up dishes and pans after cooking (for example) a smelly fish dish from locally sourced fish. Takes too much time out and spoils the moment. Also, must have a bigger TV to watch films and so forth rather than squinting at a small screen telly. But overall we have no complaints, slept well and generally relaxed/chilled in this splendid location.

A perfect seaside retreat !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a few times now and I couldn't recommend the Apartments enough. From start to finish, each time we have stayed, we have found the owners to be helpful, friendly and eager to ensure that we have a wonderful time. The views are stunning both in the winter and in the summer. The Apartments are clean, tidy and very comfortable. It is somewhere were we will certainly be coming back to for years to come.

Fantastic Apartment and View all year round!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment several times over the last 3 years and it just keeps getting better! Dog friendly, well maintained, clean and fresh with crisp linen and comfortable beds. The website is easy to follow and the booking system works well. Ventnor offers lots of lovely places to eat and is a beautiful old seaside town. Dawn was very helpful from booking up to leaving the Island and her team of staff couldn't do more for you. The bedroom and lounge area is at the front of the apartment and the sound and view of the sea is stunning in the morning when you wake up, a cuppa tea in bed is definitely a must! Each time we visit the seaside themed decorations in the apartment have been added too and the rooms look cared for! The boys like the independence of the 'Playroom' located downstairs and usually find a new friend to play with. I have and will continue to recommend these apartments to my friends. Already booked for this year!!
