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 a dog, 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 Ventnor

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, eating homemade ice creams from Crave, and playing frisbee on the beach.

Our dog, Derek, loves 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!

Just on our way home following a 2 night stay.

Would highly recommend. We had a few last minutes changes which were dealt with. Nothing was too much hassle.

It's a fantastic apartment with everything you need. Very very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. So close to beach and town centre. The view is to die for. The only fault is that the apartment was perfect and we found it hard to leave it to go out and explore the island. Which we did and felt great returning to it. Will definitely return and definitely recommend this apartment to friends and relatives.

Bring on the dreams!

Convenient to the beach and restaurants in Ventnor. Very quiet, with gorgeous views of the ocean. The apartment was perfect for the 3 of us and had everything we needed for our stay. Beds were comfortable and we all seemed to have the most wonderful dreams!!

Thank you Dawn for this wonderful experience.

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was beautiful. The view from the lounge and bedroom is stunning. You can lie in bed listening to the waves, so relaxing. Everything in the apartment was spotless and it was well equipped with everything you need. The owner, Dawn, was around when we arrived to advise us on the town, restaurants etc. and she was lovely. I had already had email correspondence with her prior to our arrival and she was extremely helpful. Could not fault this apartment but just be careful when booking as the pictures show all the apartments and some have balconies but this one does not. Only other thing to point out is the number of steps, there are quite a few up to the apartment but there are also quite a lot down to the beach and loads up to the town.

Would thoroughly recommend this apartment!
