Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a fabulous place to stay with family. The rooms are well decorated, clean and very welcoming. The property is well equipped with TV, DVD player, Hifi and a generous collection of books, DVDs and music CDs. It has got a lovely well maintained garden with garden furniture. There are ample wash rooms and toilets for large/ extended families. The kids loved it, the grand parents also loved it. This place deserves a revisit!

A lovely, well equipped house for large groups

  • 5 of 5

A great stay here for the week, a lovely spacious house large enough for a few families with quiet spaces to sit and relax. Plenty of books/gdmes/DVD's etc to enjoy in the evening/rainy days and lovely peaceful setting overlooking countryside. Would definitely recommend, and such a beautiful Island to enjoy with your family. Thanks to the hosts.

Perfect House for a large family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived at Summer Breeze on the 22nd of July and we stayed for 1 week. We were a party of 13, with ages ranging from 67 to 3 years old.

The house was beautiful and we were all amazed when we walked in. It was spacious, beautifully decorated and had plenty of facilities to suit everyone! My parents, who aren't the best with technology, loved using the Echo Dot. The children loved using the garden to run around in (when the weather allowed) and the rest of us enjoyed spending the evenings in the huge lounge watching TV and playing games.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in this brilliant house. I would recommend it to anyone and we would definitely stay there if we ever visit the Isle of Wight again.

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 adults and 4 children - age range from 18 months to 87 years stayed here for a one week duration. We had seen photographs of the property and when we entered we were not disappointed, it was very clean and well maintained, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The garden was superb and overlooking fields, a lovely location. Would certainly recommend.

A very clean and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week we had. Weather perfect, house extremely comfortable, with plenty of room of all. We were a party of 9 ages between 3 and 75yrs. The children loved the garden, and my daughter loved her walk in wardrobe. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possible need. Would highly recommend a stay at this holiday home.

Brilliant, would love to go back.

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, we were a party of 12 with ages ranging from 3yrs-70yrs old. The house was spacious, very well maintained and very clean. Our 3yr old granddaughters loved the house and playing in the well maintained gardens; they didn't want to go home.The house was well decorated throughout and very comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. There were plenty of CDs and DVDs to suit everyones taste plus garden games and games for the children to play. A good welcome pack which we appreciated, thank you. Stunning views from the back and front of the property. Ample parking.There are plenty of places to visit for all age groups, Godshill (we completed the treasure hunt, we had great fun searching for all the clues) Amazon Zoo, Garlic Farm and many more places of interest.The holiday was a surprise for my husband's birthday, the house was perfect for all the family which helped to make the week extra special. We would highly recommend this property and we would definitely stay there again.
