About Mr and Mrs Wild

My family and I have stayed at other chalets on Sandown Bay and love it so much that when we had the opportunity to buy a chalet we jumped at it. We have been regular visitors to the island and love it and hope you will also.

Mr and Mrs Wild purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Mr and Mrs Wild chose Isle of Wight

We picked this chalet because of the beautiful location overlooking Culver Down, and a short walk brings you to the cliffs and sea

What makes this chalet unique

Early morning sunshine easy parking, beautiful location

Sandown and Yaverland

A short walk of 100 metres and you are in open countryside, and after 300 meres and you are by the the sea, with wonderful views. Head south and after a further 500 metres you have reached the IOW's only zoo which is adjacent to a large Dinosaur museum. Head north from chalet and after just ove 1000 metres of bracing cliff top walk, you are come to a pub and restaurant high on Culver Down. The cliffs by Yaverland beach are famous for their Jurassic fossils and Blue Flag beaches. They are remote enough to only attract the occasional dog walker. Nearby Sandown and Shanklin are the IOW's tourist hotspots with cafes shops and seaside entertainments.

Well equipped chalet

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped chalet, we didnt have to buy the usual things you always have to buy, was very suprised to see the owners had left us a welcome basket and card which was a lovely touch and also lots of toiletries, the chalet is well positioned with a lovely view of fields and plenty of space outside the front of the chalet for the kids to play safely, the beach is within walking distance which is only just a walk down the hill. We love the Isle of Wight and will be back.

Beautiful chalet

  • 4 of 5

We found the chalet to be home from home and more. Lovely welcome gift and spotlessly clean. You wouldn't know dogs are allowed to stay. Arriving on site, it looks a bit dated and worn but the chalet is absolutely wonderful and we had a great time.

Lovely comfy chalet in great location

  • 4 of 5

We have just got back from a wonderful week at this chalet in Sandown. The perfect base to explore the island with beaches, coastal walks and even a zoo on our doorstep! The chalet is extremely well equipped with comfortable beds and good facilities in the kitchen (we have stayed in places before with hardly anything to cook with which is always a pain!). Owners very helpful and had left lots of info about all the things to do. We thoroughly enjoyed our week on the Isle and hope to be back.

Fantastic Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find bottle of wine and box of chocolates! What a lovely thought. Everything had been well thought out and executed. Fantastic beds. Great bedding. Towels and toiletries.Really nice crockery and cutlery etc. Makes such a difference to a holiday. Heating was on. Lovely. Kids were over the moon. Levi loved his bunk bed once he'd got over jumping up and hitting his head! He is only five i might add. The island weather was kind to us and we had a great stay apart from car accident but we'll gloss over that. All alive and well thank God. The only down side ( and cannot be laid at Jaine and Simon's door ) is state of campsite. Really run down and looking derelict. Shame because chalet is a fantastic base in a lovely position for children and within walking distance to Sandown,

Owner's Response: There are over two hundred chalets on the site that are privately owned and well looked after. The site has now been taken over and improvements are underway, including a new water main to improve pressure at peak times,.
