“Home from home”
Reviewed May 6, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Our first visit to the IoW and what a place to stay in! Breakers Sound has to be the most idyllic place we have ever had as a holiday home.
From the moment we arrived everything about the property was perfect. It was meticulously clean, had everything you could possibly require (the kitchen was even better equipped than at home!) and immediately instilled a feeling of calm and wellbeing. Even the initial inclement British weather couldn't put a dampener on our enthusiasm. The cottage exceeded all our expectations.
The morning room was a fabulous place to sit in, with its multiple views of the garden and sea; the living room was cosy and comfortable; the view of the waterfall feature whilst dining was lovely and waking up from luxuriously comfortable beds and being able to see the sea was wonderful. We even saw a red squirrel and two foxes during our visit.
Breakers Sound was an excellent base from which to explore the island, and a welcome sight to come home to each day. It was also a 'magical' place to wake up in on my birthday and to be able to browse round the many different facets of the incredible garden - top marks to the gardening team!
We hope this will be the first of many visits to the IoW and we would definitely wish to return to this splendid cottage. Staying at Breakers Sound certainly made it a holiday/birthday to remember.
Congratulations, Andrew, on creating such a warm and welcoming holiday home - truly a 5* establishment..

“Beautiful thatched cottage, comfortable, great location.”
Reviewed April 15, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This is our third visit to the Isle of Wight and this cottage, and we love it. There is lots to do for families, and this house makes a perfect base. Nothing is too far away, Ventnor is lovely, and some nice walks are nearby.

“Better Than We Remembered”
Reviewed February 18, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Stayed during feb half term, a return visit and even better than we remembered! The most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, impeccably clean, fully equipped, lots of space and enjoyed playing family monopoly games in the summer room. 3 generations had a lovely stay. Would love to be able to see the garden in the summer as it’s beautiful now and can’t believe how much it’s already in flower. Highly recommend staying here. Our 5 year old son said on our return home that he will miss the”holiday home!” The Linch Family. February 2018

“Best ever”
Reviewed December 14, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent three months in Europe - 2 all over the U.K. and 1 in Germany/Austria. Breakers Sound was by far the best of the 20 places we stayed. I can't recommend it and the Isle of Wight strongly enough if you want a quiet getaway with lots of interesting things to see and do that are quaint and without billions of other tourists. It's absolutely beautiful and delightful, as is this wonderful cottage.

“Absolutely beautiful chocolate box cottage.”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

An excellent location for access to the rest of the island.
The inside of the cottage is lovely, we felt very at home. Everything that we needed was there.
Bed was really comfy and what a pleasure to fall asleep listening to the sea.

“Favorite stay ever!”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We LOVE this cottage and we LOVE Isle of Wight. East of here is Ventnor and Shanklin (Google images of the charming old town Shanklin!) with lots of restaurants. West of here is more unpopulated fantastic coastal paths and incredible views. North is another shopping town of Ryde and in the middle of the island is the big city of Newport with everything you could need. All of these are just minutes away by car. But this cottage is so cozy and private and quiet that we have trouble tearing ourselves away! It's PERFECT.
