“Fantastic family holiday house”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here in June with our two kids and had a wonderful family holiday. There are stunning views of the ocean at the rear of the property which can be enjoyed from the lounge, balcony, master bedroom and patio. We particularly loved the victorian character of the property and the tasteful renovation undertaken by the owners. The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our holiday. The kitchen was a good size and well equiped. Can't wait to go back again.

“Fantastic period cottage with stunning views”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cottage makes the most of an amazing view with upside down design. The decor and furnishings are lovely and in keeping with the age of the cottage, It is also very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We could have sat out on the balcony or decking for the whole of our holiday and quietly just watched the world sail by. The bottle of wine on arrival was a really nice touch after a long drive. We look forward to returning next year.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This property has the potential for great sea views from the lounge, which is bright and comfortable, but unfortunately, the kitchen, twin bedroom and bathroom overlook a gloomy external stairwell rising up to a very busy, noisy main road. On the lower ground floor of this property the outlook from the bathroom and twin bedroom is below road level and lacking natural light. Traffic noise and vibration from buses and lorries when passing the house is in evidence. Parking is a real problem outside the house on this main road through Ventnor and not guaranteed outside of the property resulting in a steep climb back to the house after finding parking elsewhere. Particularly difficult when returning after a day out enjoying other areas of this island. A very steep interior staircase with narrow tread leading to the ground floor of this "upside down house" is a challenge and therefore, could not be recommended for people with any mobility issues or very young children (unless with extreme vigilance). During our stay a poor standard of cleanliness in evidence in areas of this house. Also, poorly equipped kitchen lacking in range of utensils. Owner made aware of this in July and addressing these basic requirements. Could not recommend this holiday let and became aware of far superior properties during our stay on this island at comparable prices with equally good sea views across Ventnor but without all the drawbacks of this house. The resort is mostly built upon different levels extending up steep hills and cliffs giving sea views from many other properties. We would however, return elsewhere to the IOW which offers many attractions, great seafood and good walking along the beautiful coast, particularly lovely towards Steephill Cove.

Management Response
Sep 19, 2016
If you have taken the time to read the above review please read on to allow us to defend ourselves, after all can all of our other reviews be so wrong? Unfortunately we had a difference of opinion with these guests regarding a complaint that was not directly related to our property and outside of our control which lead to bad feeling and hence their most condemning review.
Firstly, the interior staircase has a standard tread size for a victorian cottage and has handrails on both sides.
The exterior stairwell is the entrance to the neighbours property and although bedroom 2 and bathroom overlook this, the bathroom window is frosted for privacy as you would expect and the rooms are brightly decorated and have good lighting.
Free parking is on the road, unrestricted and adjacent to the property, there is additional parking further along the road, no need for mountaineering, maybe just a few metres walk. Also, just to clarify, the cottage is on a B road in the Isle of Wight, not the M25!
Poorly equipped kitchen? We have everything from an egg timer to picnic plates and cutlery, what more could you wish for?
Cleanliness - The cottage is cleaned thoroughly between guests, we apologise for the spider!
This is a period terraced property which enjoys stunning sea views, in a geographically challenged seaside town, we want all of our guests to enjoy the cottage and island as much as we do, we contact all of guests after their stay and we always listen to any comments carefully.

“Lovely cottage with an amazing view”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in what the kids called the upside down house at the end of July and it was a dream, the view from the lounge and the balcony is amazing and you can see out over Ventnor and the sea. The rooms were good sized with the twin room at the back that the kids stayed in being nice (the addition of a cuddly toy was a lovely touch) and we had the front bedroom that has lovely views out onto the decking and the sea.

The cottage is on the main road and parking was a little tricky although their was ample parking on the aptly named zig zag road nearby.

This was our first trip to the isle of white and we'll be booking again for next year!

“Superb views”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Such a nice stay at this cottage, excellent location, premium views, we enjoyed sitting on the terrace for dinner. This is a good choice for families - beautiful and easy walks directly from Ventnor.
