About the property

Now back for 2017 season! 5 bedroom house to sleep 10 in Ventnor, Isle of Wight

The Ventnor House, a luxury five bedroom self-catering holiday home, is set on the cliff top overlooking Ventnor Haven, with spectacular, uninterrupted sea views. The house sits in a grand Victorian terrace of eight houses, originally built to house naval officers. It has five bedrooms, three of which have en-suite facilities. Sleeping up to ten people, plus two babies, it provides the perfect holiday home for a large family or two (or more) families to share the spacious living accommodation.

You will have the benefit of a games room, dining room and an elegant drawing room, which has a balcony where you can enjoy the 180 degree sea views. In addition, there is a small courtyard garden, with barbecue and seating for 10 people, parking for two cars and a larger communal garden area.

The house enjoys broadband WiFi, Sky with a wide choice of channels and Sky Movies, a wide choice of books, games and DVDs and a WiFi with choice of games.

The drawing room: The drawing room is an elegant and spacious room situated on the first floor of the house. It has a large balcony with rocking chairs, overlooking the gardens and sea beyond - perfect for keeping an eye out for passing ships and yachts. The room has a large leather corner sofa, occasional chairs, large coffee table, flat screen TV with DVD player, iPod dock and Sky HD reception (with a wide choice of channels and Sky Movies).

The kitchen and separate dining room: The kitchen contains a breakfast table and a large old fashioned pantry, perfect for storing all your holiday goodies. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with all the things you need when looking for a home from home, including sharp knives, plenty of good quality crockery and glass ware and a good selection of utensils. There is an American style fridge freezer, which has an ice and cold water dispenser and a combination microwave oven. There is a five burner range cooker, with gas hob and very large electric oven. Finally, a filter coffee maker as well as a cafetiere give you a choice as to how you brew your morning coffee!

The dining room is at the front of the house with patio doors which open onto the terrace and court-yard garden, with sea views beyond. The large solid oak table seats twelve people comfortably, on cream leather chairs.

The games room: Perfect for those rainy days or when the sun is just too hot outside. The games room has a large TV with sky reception and a DVD player. It also has a Wii with a small collection of games suitable for most ages. There are two gaming chairs, for those who like to sit comfortably when chasing Mario, and a large leather sofa. There is also a pool table and a library of ‘U’ and ‘PG’ certificate films along with a selection of games, jigsaws and books to suit most ages.

About David Grant

We are a family of four who love going on holiday to Ventnor. We discovered the resort when our children were little and we have made very many happy memories there.

David Grant purchased this house in 2009

Why David Grant chose Ventnor

The house is simply stunning, huge and with plenty of space for multi-generational use.

The sea views are astoundingly good - nothing beats sitting on the drawing room balcony with a glass of wine and the perfect sea view.

Some of our happiest times at the house have been in winter time, watching the raging stormy sea whilst tucked up and cosy inside. The first night after we had bought the house we had no furniture so all four of us were sleeping in the living room on blow up mattresses and it was a howler of a storm (100 mph winds at the needles). It was such an exciting night and set us up for those winter weekends for many years to come!

What makes this house unique

The house is close to both the beach and to the town centre - approximately 5 minutes walk to either. This puts the restaurants, shops and beach at very close distance to the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've only just arrived and already we are amazed and satisfied by the widely spaced, yet cosy house we've been provided with. We cannot wait to spend the upcoming week in this beautiful house.

The view is absolutely astounding ad we love the modern style to the house. By all the little extra details, such as dvds and games consults etc, we can tell that a lot of thought has gone into it and we greatly appreciate that. Thank you very much, we are a very happy family to be here (written by Jxxx 15 years old)!

Holiday Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautifully equipped, with loads of space for families not be on top of one another. The climb back, after being on the front, seems less steep by the end of the week!

The welcome pack was very welcome, and the larder had herbs and condiments, which were useful. The only adverse comment I would make, is the mugs are huge! And if that's the only thing, it shows you how brilliant everything else was.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fabulous review - it is very much appreciated. And yes, the mugs are huge but it means you have to move less often from the verandah to make a fresh brew, so don't waste a minute of the views! :-) Thanks again - so glad that you enjoyed your time at the house.

Great property for a family break

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house - perfect for our family's long weekend away. We were 8 adults, 2 babies and 2 toddlers. The house is beautifully furnished, spacious, and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The view from the sitting room on the first floor, and the largest bedroom on the top floor, is stunning, and the house is well situated for the beach and town. The weather was not particularly kind - extremely windy and overcast - so it was great to be cosy inside and enjoy the house to the full.

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, delightful and well equipped three storey house. It is clearly well managed and spotlessly clean. The balcony views are stunning and it is well placed close to the town but overlooking the sea. The wifi had good coverage throughout the house. We stayed during a chilly weekend and the house was lovely and warm. The house has plenty of bathrooms but only 2 showers. It would be a great house for family get togethers. The house was better than we had anticipated from the photos which don't really do it justice. Great value. Thanks

A great back house for a group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 adults, 2 children and 1 infant and the house was perfect for us. The living room was spacious for lounging, the kitchen was well-equipped and the dining room was big enough for all of us to enjoy meals together. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms. The location is perfect; sea views, easy walk to the beach and to shops and restaurants. It was exactly what we wanted!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review; it is very much appreciated. The house seems to work its magic on multi-generational groups, with the spaciousness of it meaning everyone can find their own bit of solitude if they want it but can come together in the large dining and drawing rooms when everyone wants to chat and socialise. It's lovely when our guests also value the features that attracted us to the house all those years ago!

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

The situation of this beautiful house couldn’t have been more perfect. The beach was right outside the door and down the hillside. The views and sunsets were awe inspiring. The house itself is spacious, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and perfect for our family get together. The children loved the games room whilst the adults relaxed. We all enjoyed the beach, the cliff side walks, the rock pools, the playground. I could go on ....

A Victorian town with a Mediterranean feel, Ventnor is one of the sunniest spots on the Island. It enjoys a surprisingly mild climate due to sheltering cliffs and southerly aspect. Ventnor is one of the UK’s most fashionable seaside resorts, offering old-fashioned beach fun with an attractive esplanade, arcade, cafes and ice cream shops. The Esplanade has a part sand, part fine shingle beach, ideal for sandcastles, sunbathing and swimming.

The upper part of the town is devoted to the main shopping area where time seems to have stood still, with independent stores dominating your shopping experience.

There are plenty of places for a wonderful day out on the Isle of Wight. For young adventurers amongst you, Blackgang Chine and Robin Hill, provide some old fashioned adventure park fun. Perhaps a trip to one of the many working farms or a boat trip might be more for you. For the more mature tastes, there are wonderful coastal walks, pretty gardens and historic buildings to visit.
