About Helen Rodgers

I live with my husband in the South of England. We both run our own businesses, and our two daughters have now left home, so we are able to sneak away to our holiday home regularly.

Helen Rodgers purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Helen Rodgers chose Isle of Wight

We chose to buy in Ventnor because the Isle of Wight has always been a favourite location of ours and I have very fond childhood memories of it. Island life is always more relaxed and as soon as you get on the ferry you feel like you are on holiday. Ventnor is a lovely, traditional seaside town that makes you feel like you have stepped back in time to a gentler age!

What makes this cottage unique

The property has lovely sea views from all floors and sits on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty, with fantastic walks, either on the Downs behind the cottage or along the coast.

Ventnor is known for it's good restaurants and interesting independent shops, many selling great Isle of Wight produce. The cottage is within walking distance of so many great cafes and restaurants that you can stay for a fortnight and not get round them all!

Beautiful, Amazing views, Made our holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house on 3 floors. Helen has made sure the House is equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need for your stay!! Large kitchen on lower floor, Even bigger living area on 2nd floor, and 2 very comfortable bedrooms on 3rd floor. Lots of parking available front and back of house.

Ventnor beach is a 2 minute drive or a 10 to 15min walk (very steep hills) Will definitely be recommending and would stay again.

Thank you again Helen

5* Charming Coastal Cottage with sea views

  • 5 of 5

What an ideal home from home week we enjoyed in the May half term with our boys aged 7 and 8. The house was spotless, had everything you could wish for plus the added touches, extremely well maintained and the owner very helpful. Would certainly not hesitate to return and recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

Modest exterior hides a first class interior

  • 5 of 5

Google Earth showed an ordinary Victorian terraced, but we booked anyway and were delighted once stepping inside. Lovely decor, superbly well equipped, genuine sea views (cruise liners passing in the night were captivating). Helen's communications are very welcoming, with a delicious cake, milk etc. on arrival. The only gadget we would have liked: knife sharpener ... in self-catering, blunt-ish knives are the norm! What do people do with 'em? Highly recommended.

Best holiday cottage by far

  • 5 of 5

As the title says, this is the nicest self catering rental property we have stayed in. The house is clean, well decorated and everything is to a high standard of comfort and convenience. The pint of milk and locally made cake on arrival were just some of the little touches that make a difference to the holiday experience. We had a brilliant weekend and would love to return for longer with the children in future. Highly recommended.

Top quality holiday house with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect holiday home in every sense. Spotlessly clean, fully equipped, very comfortable and cosy warm (it was a cold week in Ventnor!).

The owner has thought of everything and more. The cake on arrival was a lovely surprise and very tasty indeed.

It's location is perfect for exploring the island and for energetic walks down to (and back up from!) Ventnor. It was a daily treat to come back from a day out and sit in the lounge bay window looking out to sea with the binoculars provided with a fresh cup of cafetiere coffee (again provided by the owner!)

I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Excellent base for exploring the Isle of Wight

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculately clean, well maintained and has superb attention to detail. Everything you could imagine you'd want in a holiday property is there from a PlayStation for the kids to buckets, spades and beach gear. Lovely views to sea from the living room and master bedroom.

Ventnor is a great place to stay, loads of good places to eat and drink and the paddling pool is a winner for small children. Visit the ice cream parlour for probably the best ice cream you'll ever have. Take a walk also to Steephill Cove for a crab pasty - awesome!
