Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment 23-27th September and found it to be very clean and well fitted out with all the extras you might need during your holiday. Nice quiet location, but only a very short distance from the town. Excellent sea views from the deck.On arrival there were some essentials left in fridge, wine,milk, cream cakes,etc, which we thought was a very nice gesture.

Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect base for first family break

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at ocean deck and first mini break with our 3 month old daughter!

As expected the apartment was perfect, spotlessly clean. The owners had set up a cot in the main room complete with cuddly toy for the baby! Although the apartment isn't huge it has everything you might need, the compact kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine should you need it! As long as you have a car with small children it's fine as it's at the top of quite a slope but not anything most people can't manage. Literally a 5-10 minute stroll into shanklin.

We will be back and don't hesitate to recommend.

Great views, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week’s stay at Ocean Deck Apartment. We would thoroughly recommend the apartment. It was in a great location, private parking, and the sea views are stunning (much better than in the photos!). The apartment itself was spotless and very well equipped, and we were welcomed by homemade scones, passion fruit cheesecakes and Prosecco. We would book it again for any future holidays.

Perfect Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Deck is a lovely holiday apartment which is clean, spacious and very well equipped, we were welcomed upon our arrival with a delicious homemade jam and cream cake.

The apartment is located in a very peaceful location, with no busy roads nearby, and has a fantastic view of the sea and culver cliff in the distance.

For those of you who like walking, the apartment is located near the coastal path, a beautiful and very scenic trail which can be followed to Bonchurch and Ventnor. Just outside, guests also have the option to visit the communal gardens where you can see the local wildlife such as birds and red squirrels.

There is now TVs in each of the two bedrooms as well a Freesat TV in the lounge complete with a good selection of family DVD's.

The Rylstone Gardens are also located nearby where you can have a game of crazy golf or listen to the popular brass bands in the evening. Though I must say it can be really relaxing just sitting on the outside veranda listening to the faint sound of the Brass Band from the distance. Guests also have access to The Bourne Hotel indoor swimming pool which is just a few yards down the road, which is a very nice bonus.

Overall we believe this is the perfect apartment and will be definitely visiting again in the future.

About Steve and Caroline Scutt

Ocean Deck is managed by Steve and Caroline Scutt who live locally with their own family. They are all keen hikers and cyclists themselves so can direct you to some interesting locations off the main beat. They will greet you on arrival and are easy to contact should you have any needs during your stay.

In the kitchen you will discover complimentary refreshments to help you to unwind and fall into that relaxed holiday mood!

Why Steve and Caroline Scutt chose Shanklin

Ocean Deck is warm and welcoming. Couples, families and friends feel equally at home here.

It is situated on a coastal footpath. Just a few steps and you are up on the downs, enjoying both coastal and countryside scenery. Nearby, unspoilt fishing villages are waiting to be explored and Miles of country cycle track are close by too!

The apartment sits in and shares two acres of landscaped gardens to wander or relax in, watching our protected red squirrels and wildlife. The bay you can see from the garden is sandy and safe, a ten minute lovely stroll through Rylstone Gardens nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with Ocean Deck as soon as we drove into the car park and were entranced with the view. It was the famous Round The Island Yacht Race that day. The blue sea was full of bright coloured yachts competing , you could even hear the sailors shouting to each other from the sea!

On the other side, the front of the property, the downs adjoin our quiet little road. So be it sea or country we have it all!
