Holiday Home In Ventnor

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
House in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Recently Renovated 3 Bedroom House, Comfortably Sleeps 6

Seaward is our holiday home, which we bought in 2010 and spent a year renovating and refurbishing. All rooms have been decorated and furnished to a high standard and all mod-cons provided. It is a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Ventnor, with its sandy beach and seafront bars and cafes. Three good sized bedrooms comfortably sleep six people with bunk beds in one room, twin single beds in another and a large, comfortable king sized bed in the main bedroom. The house was originally two properties, one the original baker's shop supplied direct by the bakery next door. The refurbishment has ensured that the house is comfortable (fully central heated and double glazed throughout) and modern without losing it's original charm. We can't spend enough time there and hope you'll enjoy it too.

About the Owner

With two children aged 7 and 9, the Isle of Wight is the perfect holiday escape for us; we have been holidaying on the Island for years. We especially fell in love with Ventnor, with its unique Victorian charm, beautiful beach and friendly people. We bought our home there in 2010 and spent the best part of a year making it the perfect holiday escape from our busy lives in London.

Lovely holiday home!

  • 4 of 5

Just on the ferry home after a lovely week staying at Seaward! The owners have been very thoughtful in how they have presented the holiday home and I believe it could be beautiful. It is a little disappointing that the home was not particularly clean on our arrival, this included the kitchen not being very clean and consisted of bits of food left on the work surface and the tiles. The carpets had obviously been hoovered but it's unfortunate that perhaps the people staying before us had eaten in the bedroom as there was still bits on the carpet. I appreciate its a quick turn around in the height of season so it makes deep cleaning such as windows and removing the many spiders and cobwebs a little tricky! Having said this the bedding and towels were lovely and fresh and this didn't have an impact on our stay! Our only other suggestion would be a bath mat as the bathroom floor gets very slippy making it a little dangerous for children. Apart from these small issues we have enjoyed our time in Ventnor and would stay at the property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are pleased you had a good stay. We've passed your comments to our cleaner and we will make sure all those helpful points are addressed in the future. It is a quick turn around as we try to make the stay as long as possible but there's no excuse for missing details like that. Hope to see you again. Brendan

Location

From the Owner

Ventnor is such a picturesque town, the quintessential Victorian seaside town but with something different. The Isle of Wight is known as a haven for food lovers and the bars, cafes and restaurants in the area are some of the best we have ever tried. The house is so close to the seafront, it's a 10 minute walk (via steps or step-free pavement) to the beach and town centre. We love this house, and the town and hope you will enjoy staying there too.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

10 minute walk to the sandy beach at Ventnor.

Travel:

Approximately 20-25 minute drive from ferry ports of Fishborne (Portsmouth) or East Cowes (Southampton)

Further Details:

Car Parking

Parking is available in the street outside the house. We rarely have a problem getting a space other than in the height of the season. It is quite central so spaces are limited but in the unusual event that you can't park, there is a free 24 hour car park (Wheeler's Bay Car Park) which is very near and connected to St Catherine Street via a set of steps. It is, approximately, a 3 minute walk away.

Ventnor is a foodies paradise; the house is a 10 minute walk to Michelin Star restaurant, The Hambrough and 10 minutes in the opposite direction, towards Bonchurch for the sister restaurant, The Pond Cafe. The Garlic Farm Cafe is a short drive away and Bluebells at Briddlesford is on the road north. More information and photographs of the house can be seen on our website.

Cancellation
If you cancel 8 weeks or more before your holiday, we will keep hold of the deposit but return anything else you may have paid (or, of course, not expect the full payment from you).  If you cancel with less than 8 weeks notice, this is the basis on which we would refund the money you had paid (less the deposit)
 
• Up to 8 weeks – no cancellation charge
• 4-8 weeks – 50% of money refunded
• 2-4 weeks – 25% of money refunded
• Less than 2 weeks – no refund
 
We are not greedy though and if we can let out the week(s) that you have cancelled at the same price, we promise to return 100% of what you have given us, including your original deposit.


Changeover Day:
Normal changeover is Saturday, but please ask and we will be flexible where we can, most likely in the 'low' seasons.

We will confirm a booking, and show the week(s) as booked on-line once we have received and banked your deposit.  This is a non-refundable deposit just to secure the booking.  We ask for the remainder of the full amount to be paid as soon as you are able, but at least 8 weeks before your holiday is due to start.
