About Jacquie Campbell

We fell in love with the Isle of Wight several years ago and our now family spends as much time there as possible. We have enjoyed creating a home from home in our apartment and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Jacquie Campbell purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jacquie Campbell chose Ventnor

The apartment is full of character and has fantastic views of the sea from several rooms, as well as the beautiful Downs to the opposite aspect, so when you are tired from exploring the island, it is so lovely to be able to relax but still appreciate the stunning area. The large windows also make it wonderfully light. It is great to have a garden area, where outdoor meals or an evening drink can be enjoyed.

What makes this apartment unique

We have completely renovated the property, retaining the Victorian features but ensuring a high standard of comfort, with new kitchen diner and a shower room separate to the bathroom. The furniture and fittings have been chosen with comfort and style in mind, so we are regularly complemented on our super comfy beds and sofas. The apartment is part of a historic building where Karl Marx spent the last winters of his life.

Lovely spacious and comfortable home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and 2 young kids and the apartment was perfect for our needs. The beds were comfortable, the linen and towels were of good quality. The bathrooms and kitchens were clean and modern. The kids loved the toys and books in the living room and there were plenty of books and dvds for us. We found it very peaceful and quiet and barely heard church bells.

We loved the fact that Marx had spent the last winters of his life in this house. The location was fab, 15 mins walk to the beach which takes you through the very pleasant town of Ventnor. We had a lovely meal at the Spyglass Inn. Although it was raining for parts of our trip, we managed to have some great days out to Osbourne house (we happened to have watched Victoria and Abdul the night before!), the Castle, Needles (perhaps not the hightlight), the donkey sanctuary and a fantastic lobster meal in Shanklin followed by a rather muddy though really scenic walk back to Ventnor.

Jacquie and her sister were very friendly and quick to communicate. I highly recommend this property.Thank you both!

Great facilities, great location

  • 4 of 5

The property is conveniently located just outside the centre of Ventnor, and is no more than half an hour from anywhere else on the Island. It's very well equipped and has been cleverly converted with plenty of storage space. The owner Jacquie is very welcoming, friendly and provides useful local knowledge. It's clean and we'll - maintained, and it's interesting to know the history of the house where Marx stayed.

The only drawbacks are that you rely on on - street parking, so you may have a bit of a trek from the car with your suitcase, and being split - level it won't be ideal if you have mobility problems; although our two - year - old had no problem with it.

A great base to explore the island from. We hope to come back!

Owner's Response: So pleased you had a good time and all was well. If you come again, there's a lay-by right outside the front door - you can't park there for long, but you can use it to load and unload. I'm so sorry if I didn't tell you that - will make sure the instructions are clearer! Best wishes.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The flat was ideally located for all the things we wanted to do. Jacquie was amazing with her help and the recommendations she gave me to keep a family of 5 happy - including 2 teenagers and my mother in law. We were a little worried about the bell ringing review but it wasn't a problem at all - maybe heard it once but it wasn't loud. Also the reviews about car parking raised some concern but again we had no problem parking at all throughout our 6 day stay and parked close to the flat. The flat itself was clean and spacious for our requirements and had a lovely view of the sea. I would definitely recommend this to others and again a special thanks to Jacquie for all her help.

Spacious, clean, well equipped and bags of character

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment - it was light, clean, spacious, and the host was very generous with advice on what to do/see in the local area, and in how the inside was kitted out (speakers, TV, games, DVDs etc.). Inside had beautiful wooden flooring, sea-themed decor and views to the sea. Beds were firm - very comfortable to sleep. The property is located within walking distance of the town and local bars and restaurants, in the nicest area of the island. Could not recommend enough - feel very lucky to have been able to stay here.

Beautiful property, great location and views! Recommended

  • 5 of 5

The description doesn't do this apartment justice. A view of a lovely old church, the sea and Ventnor one side, with a beautiful tree covered ridge the other. Immaculate condition inside. Many of the best pub restaurants seem to be located this side of the island, with easy access to all the major attractions. Highly recommended!

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Ventnor or Bonchurch

The Isle of Wight is a refreshingly charming place, with breathtakingly beautiful scenery without the crowds and traffic. Whilst it is possible to tour around the island in a day, there is such a variety of picturesque small towns and villages, each with their own character, lovely shops and fabulous restaurants/ cafes, as well as tourist attractions, that it is well worth taking time to linger. The island products include excellent artisan foods and drinks and there are many individual and stylish shops.
