About Mrs Debbie Elliott

I live with my husband and three whippet dogs in Hampshire, having moved along the coast from West Sussex, originally from Chichester where I went to college.

Mrs Debbie Elliott purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mrs Debbie Elliott chose Ryde

The Isle of Wight was a natural choice to purchase a holiday rental, being close to Portsmouth and being able to cross on the Hovercraft to Ryde. Ryde is a lovely, grand old Victorian town with much to offer, the apartment is in a conservation area with many listed buildings, close to Appley sands, one of the best beaches on The Island. The views from all windows in the apartment are lovely, and it has a light and airy feel, always welcoming after a day out. It is even a treat to go across and collect the laundry after the lets!!

What makes this apartment unique

In a great location, close to the town for shopping, and the best beach on The Island, with views over the rooftops of Ryde town to the rear, and the Solent to the front, even washing up is a treat!

Not forgetting that dedicated parking space in the rear car park.

Well-appointed, light and airy

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very attractive and roomy - with two beautiful bathrooms and a modern kitchen. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and it's so near the sea and just a short walk to the town. There are lovely views. We had a four night break there over Easter when the weather was awful but it felt like a very safe and comfy place to be. If I had one suggestion it would be for a deeper sofa to curl up on on wet days like the ones we had, but it's an exceptionally good holiday let.

Beautiful Apartment - Perfect for a seaside getaway

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at this property recently and we were overjoyed when we entered the apartment. It is beautifully put together with a lovely lounge and kitchen area and both bedrooms are wonderful with plenty of drawer and hanging space. 2 bathrooms meant my friend and I were not battling for mirror space. It is really quiet and literally a 5 min walk from the beautiful beach at Ryde and a 10 min walk to the shops. It was a perfect sanctuary that allowed us to really enjoy our weekend break on the Isle of Wight and I could not recommend it highly enough.

Owner's Response: I hope you both come back and have more time to enjoy the beach, and the rest of the attractions on the IOW. You are both most welcome.

A truly excellent flat, a wonderful base.

  • 5 of 5

First impressions of the apartment are very good, nice, light and airy, very much like the pictures on the website. Although there were two flights of stairs to reach no.10, the views from the lounge window compensated for this, enabling us to see the nautical activities on Ryde seas.

The actual apartment was clean and tidy, with good facilities available both in the lounge and kitchen. The two bedrooms were very comfortable, and having the en-suite bathroom off of the main bedroom along with the main bathroom suited our needs very well.

The nice little homely touches around the apartment such as pictures, seaside themed signs and clothes hooks throughout the flat made for a very enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend 10 Sandbanks to family and friends, a good place to use as a base for a holiday on the Island, with access into Ryde and the beach just a few minutes’ walk away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, and hope to welcome you back again in the future. It is 10 Sandlands though, not Sandbanks, that's somewhere else with a few more noughts on the end of the property prices 😁

Immaculate, well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment in Ryde because we were going to the Isle of Wight Festival, but wanted some peace and comfort when we weren't watching our favourite bands. All the arrangements prior to arriving were very straightforward, with plenty of information on the apartment given in advance. It was great to have a designated parking space at the rear, so no headaches with parking. The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, very well equipped and nicely decorated. The beds are very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom is far more spacious than you'd expect. I'd happily recommend the apartment to anyone holidaying on the Isle of Wight - Ryde is very accessible for the ferries, there's a great beach just around the corner and nowhere on the island is too far away by car.

A lovely apartment exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described couldn't have asked for better. Debbie kept us well informed as the decorators were outside but they didn't bother us at all. We really enjoyed sitting eating our breakfast looking out to sea.

A couple of evenings were a bit chilly but extremely quickly the heating worked and we were able to switch it off again. Every leaflet was available and we made good use of them. There were also magazines and reading books to use.

We loved Osborne House and the pub opposite the gates had great food and the people were very friendly. In fact we found the people everywhere very helpful and friendly. The Breezer buses are great value as they have 4 areas covered and you can use the ticket for 24 hours on any Breezer route including the Coaster bus. If you buy your Breezer ticket after 9.30am one day you can use it next morning on the 9.30 Coaster bus. We loved Sandown and Shanklin went by bus and returned by train, again very reasonably priced.

Cowes was interesting as you had the boating interest and streets with different shops to the norm.

Altogether a lovely holiday in a great apartment.
