“Fabulous! Can't wait to return!”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The chalet far exceeded my expectations. Its beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. When we arrived we found the chalet spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped and the owners are so helpful and thoughtful when anticipating our needs. The location of the chalet is brilliant as there are lots of interesting places accessible by foot or in the car.

My children loved staying at Fossils Reach and are begging me to take them back!

“Sweet little pet friendly chalet”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed here for a few days and it was lovely!! We stay in the iow a lot and like to try different areas but now we have found this little place, we might not try anywhere else! Owners are so lovely and cant do enough, a little welcome pack in the room which was so handy as we forgot milk!! In a good area to walk the dog. cannot recommend enough! Cant wait to come back! Must have a car as getting around the Island is a must! Ideal stay when you are visiting family and friends like we do! Thanks to the owners for having us!

Thank you for a smashing review Emm. We're touched. It was good to meet you all, and we would welcome you back again. We've just completed a second chalet (Fossils Rest) so should always have space for you. Thanks again I&D.

“Clean, well provisioned, pet friendly, free wifi, good location, friendly owner.”
Reviewed June 29, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

10 minute amble down to the beach and Sandown for shops, etc. 5 minute drive to Aldi & Morrisons supermarkets. Lovely countryside and coast. Ventnor Botanic Gardens a must see. Old world thatched charm at Shanklin. Lots more places to visit. It was our first stay on the Isle of Wight. We will be back.
Accommodation was clean, well provisioned with free wifi and dog-friendly. It was a little small with no wardrobe space but was nevertheless a good place to stay. The owners, also dog-lovers, were friendly and helpful with good communication prior to our visit.

Thank you for your lovely review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the Island and our little part of it. We've tried to maximise the use of space in the chalet hence the novel hanging rails rather than conventional wardrobes, but we will review this at the end of the season. We would love to see you all again at any time. Thanks again.I&D

“Amazing home from home”
Reviewed June 27, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Amazing peaceful location. Right by the best dog friendly beaches made this our choice, so the whole family can enjoy. Everywhere on the Island is easily accessible and Sandown only a short stroll. The chalet is a total credit to the owners. Beautifully furnished and decorated, but its the care and thought in all those little things that make' Fossils Reach' exceptional. Everything is here and thought of. My self and my teenage daughter had a lovely break, and so did her Assistance dog Harley Quinn. So nice the owners are just completing a second Chalet 'Fossils Rest', a great opportunity for larger families to book both chalets and enjoy together. We will certainly be coming back ourselves.
