About the property

This house truly is a one off! Book today, you won't be disappointed.

New to the holiday market January 2015, this recently constructed house has been purposely designed with holiday guests in mind.

All four bedrooms have ensuites and Sleep 12, two of the bedrooms are family rooms each sleeping 4..

Three bedrooms lead on to outside balconies allowing guests to fully enjoy the fabulous views to the front and rear of the property.

The country style kitchen is fitted with a large central island, range cooker and walk in larder making it a chefs dream.

The central living area has real wow factor with its vaulted ceiling, panoramic windows and bi fold doors that allow the patio area and garden to come into the house.

The lounge/dining room is a real fun area. The dining area is sunken providing a together feeling when eating. The lounge is fitted with a cinema system allowing guests to enjoy films and sporting events to the full. Whilst those that like a tipple (or two) will thoroughly enjoy the bar area that has bar stools for 6 and standing room for others.

The back garden is West facing and enjoys full sunshine from midday on emanating with glorious sunsets at the end of the day.

The house sits near the end of a no through road which makes it a very safe place for children to play.

For walkers and cyclists there are woods, countryside and cycle tracks literally outside the front door.

The Old Village is a 3 minute drive away and the beach a further 2 minutes.

What a fantastic house!!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the whole process was so easy with the owners keeping me fully updated right up to our weekends stay even recommending restaurants for us.

The house had so many facilities that it meant the whole family from grandma to grandkids were fully occupied all weekend.

Definitely coming back!!

Our first trip to the IOW (although my daughter's family have been many times) and what a fabulous house for the seven of us to enjoy. A great position near to Shanklin and wonderful facilities for us all to enjoy. My only reservations were lack of instructions on how things work in some areas (in my view this should all be in one folder) and the cleanliness particularly in the kitchen was not up to the standard I would expect for such a house.(E.G. the light shades above food preparation area were thick with dust and the pots and cutlery needed washing before use)

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for three nights. My family from US and Australia joined us and we had a lovely time exploring the island. Steve was very helpful when we needed some support during the stay.

Lovely house and great situation

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house for a weekend party with family. Masses of space, comfy bedrooms, well equipped - the cinema screen particularly enjoyed by all! Little bit tired in places and a few cobwebs - but didn't marr our enjoyment.

Fantastic Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I spent the half term week at this lovely home with my wife, 2 children, wife's parents and brother in law. It was a fantastic location, just 5 mins drive to Shanklin and it's wealth of restaurants, beach and Chine. The house was the perfect retreat after a long day visiting the various tourist sights. I would recommend this home with no hesitation, we had a great week.

We had a super week at this fab house! We pulled up & couldnt believe this was ours for the week! Even the sainsburys Delivery guy was jealous!

The furnishings are top quality, we absolutely fell in love with the velvet sofas! The cinema screen was amazing, my brother & brother in law even looked at purchasing one when we came home! It was hard to actually leave the house & venture out!

The chip & put was a great added feature, my daughter played it rain or shine and now wants to join a golf club!

We were short on a few towels in the family rooms, but we managed and didn't want to bother anyone..

Great communication with the owners!

We will definitely be back!

Thank you
