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

A beautiful house in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. Our daughter is 9months old an Helen could not have done more to accommodate us and make help our stay easier, with stair gates and high chair all ready for us.

We were able to check in 3hours early and check out later aswell which was just brilliant and helped us to really relax.

The house has everything you could need, from beach towels and toys to black out blinds in the twin room and tea and cake on arrival!

The location is fantastic and a great walk to the beach and lots of lovely restaurants!

Thank you for a fantastic stay and we look forward to coming again.

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.
