“Superb Location”
Reviewed July 13, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This cottage is located on the hill leading down to Ventnor Beach and has superb sea views. It includes a pair of binoculars to watch the passing ships. Coming from New Zealand where we regularly attend Art Deco weekends at Napier, we loved the Art Deco furnishings. We were also amused by the comical duck tiles in the bathroom.. Overall the perfect location to unwind.

“Third time, still great”
Reviewed June 18, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was our third visit to Stonesthrow Cottage. We love it. The owner lives in the house for half the year and has a network of helpful, friendly, people who ensure that it is well maintained. We stayed for 2 weeks and could not have been anywhere on the Island that would have suited us more. When it rained we were happy to stay in and enjoy our surroundings.

“Great house lovely views”
Reviewed May 27, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The location of the house was perfect for the beach and town centre. Nice touch was the bottle of wine on arrival, but it didn't take long to find the Spyglass Inn, two minutes walk from the property perfect pint and good pub grub. The views from the house were amazing, you can almost touch the sea. Bedroom 1 has a balcony overlooking the beach and bedroom two has the same view through a nice picture window. Both bathrooms have wet room type showers. Nice cosy lounge and kitchen is perfect if you fancy doing all your own cooking.

“Another perfect week at Stonesthrow Cottage”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I stayed at Stonesthrow with my husband and my sister. This was our second stay at and we had a perfect time. As before, Jamie met us when we arrived and he went out of his way to be helpful and friendly.
The cottage is well laid out for the three of us as my sister stays on the second floor, where she has her own en-suite and we use the main bedroom on the first floor where you can sleep with the French doors open and hear the sea. It is wonderfully relaxing.
There had been some improvements since last year - the main one being an improvement to the first floor balcony, where we sat several times to enjoy the view. Also, I was pleased to find a cafetière in the kitchen this time, so we enjoyed coffee in the mornings. Thank you.
We are hoping to return next year and are looking forward to it already.
I'm sorry it has taken so long to write this review, but it kept slipping my mind as it has been a busy year.

“picture perfect pleasurable stay”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were pleasantly surprised at just how spacious this accommodation was and agree with all the good comments before us. The weather was brilliant, which does help but it was so comfortable and welcoming. I loved the art deco style and the eclectic mix of furniture. The house had everything that one could need for an easy holiday and with the beautiful views. A great place from which to wander or to reach other parts of the Island. Very happy stay. Problems with bathroom drainage and level of cleaning throughout but nothing the owners can not address, thank you for letting us into your beautiful home.

“Lovely house in a fantastic location”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We found this house to be extremely cosy and almost a home from home. We loved that it is actually someone's home rather than just a holiday rental. The location is brilliant, one road back from the sea front and the balcony on the first floor offers stunning views of the beach. We were lucky enough to be staying during Ventnor carnival and enjoyed watching the fireworks on the beach. The town is very friendly and we found it perfect for us and our young boys, bit of a push up the road with the buggy but good exercise! The only downside is that our holiday wasn't long enough. Can't wait to visit again.
