Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Shanklin - Shanklin Holiday Home


On the south east of the island, Shanklin is a beautiful, historical old village with a stunning safe beach in a bay.

About Owner

My mother was born on the Island and we have been visitors for many years. We are still finding things to do, there is so much in a compact place.

Having selected a short list of places to buy a property, we felt Shanklin has a lot to offer, with a good shopping centre, theatre, loads of restaurants and pubs not to mention a great beach.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Owner chose Isle of Wight

When we walked through the door the apartment just felt right. It was light and spacious inside with a great location, being close to a number of different walks. The beach is within 5 minutes walk as is the park and village centre. The town is about 10 minutes walk and the station a couple of minutes further.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment enjoys a peaceful location with a view from the balcony across Shanklin and Sandown bays, to Culver Down and on a clear day, to the mainland.

Fantastic, comfortable, well appointed apartment in a lovely seaside village

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment was first class from a detailed and knowledgeable handover from David (the owner) to the wonderfully well appointed apartment that was beautifully presented. Everything was as detailed in the description and more and was spotless on arrival. David knows the island very well and is easy to to talk to, so it is well worth tapping in to his expertise for the best places to visit and the best restaurants both in Shanklin and the island itself.

The property is very comfortable and has two large bedrooms with plenty of storage space. The two bathrooms (one ensuite) are also large and in keeping with the rest of the apartment very well turned out. The open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen is very light, bright and comfortably furnished with all you could wish for including Sky TV, Dishwasher and Washing Machine. The living area has a very larger glass wall which opens on to large balcony that gets the sun from first thing in the morning until early afternoon, a great place to have your breakfast or if a little later rising your brunch. The apartment was on the second floor and and benefits from a lift to access especially useful when taking the luggage up and down.

The apartment is situated very close to Shanklin Old Village and a very short walk to Shanklin's wonderful beach so is in the perfect position this lovely seaside village.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone (except those with younger children because of the balcony) and would not hesitate to book again if returning to Shanklin.

In terms of attractions we really enjoyed the 4 crazy golf courses in Shanklin (Rylstone Gardens course is only two minutes away), Osbourne House and Carisbroke Castle. The Corner restaurant in Shanklin is very good with very marvelous food, great staff and really nice atmosphere.

All in all a brilliant holiday.

Beautiful apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Isle of Wight three times in the last ten years and this was by far the best holiday we have had there. It's a long car journey from the North East but the journey was well worth it. We were met at the apartment by the owner (even though we were nearly 90 minutes late due to delays in traffic and ferry crossings) and he showed us round the apartment...and provided some groceries and a very welcome bottle of wine...a really nice touch.

The apartment is modern, large and airy, well furnished and with a great view over Shanklin bay. The grandchildren loved spending early morning on the balcony having breakfast. It is about a 15 minute walk down to the seafront and beware..there are a few 'steepish' hills to climb or if you're fit enough you can descend and ascend by the cliff steps - all 150 of them. If you don't want this challenge try the cliff lift.

There are numerous attractions on the island for young and old......with numerous beaches and harbours to explore.

A great holiday made even better by great weather

The apartment was very clean, spacious and well equipped with everything in good working order. It was quietly located in a residential area, easy to find, and had convenient parking and a lift. It was a pleasure to meet David, the owner, at the apartment and be shown around with the added bonus of a welcome pack and useful local information. We researched alternatives and are confident we chose the best. Thank you for a very successful stay.

We stopped at this apartment for a week only wish it could have been longer. On arrival we were met by David who showed us around and told us lots of information about the apartment and the area. The apartment is well appointed and has everything you would need for a long or short break, the whole place was very clean and the welcome pack (tea, coffee, milk and bread a very nice touch as was the wine in the fridge, plenty of extra towels and bed linen also. Shanklin is a beautiful village with lovely shops and great pubs as well as great places to eat. We were there to go walking and found loads of walks all over the island. I would recommend the weekly bus ticket for £55 that allows up to 5 adults to travel on all the buses as well as the open top breezer buses that run from most sea side towns, it also gives you a chance to forget about he car for the week. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be in a peaceful location but near enough to shops and pubs and the view from the balcony is great. Thank you David for a great holiday in a lovely apartment hopefully we will be back again
