About Jacquie Campbell

We fell in love with the Isle of Wight several years ago and our now family spends as much time there as possible. We have enjoyed creating a home from home in our apartment and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Jacquie Campbell purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jacquie Campbell chose Isle of Wight

The apartment is full of character and has fantastic views of the sea from several rooms, as well as the beautiful Downs to the opposite aspect, so when you are tired from exploring the island, it is so lovely to be able to relax but still appreciate the stunning area. The large windows also make it wonderfully light. It is great to have a garden area, where outdoor meals or an evening drink can be enjoyed.

What makes this apartment unique

We have completely renovated the property, retaining the Victorian features but ensuring a high standard of comfort, with new kitchen diner and a shower room separate to the bathroom. The furniture and fittings have been chosen with comfort and style in mind, so we are regularly complemented on our super comfy beds and sofas. The apartment is part of a historic building where Karl Marx spent the last winters of his life.

Lovely renovated flat on top floor with views of sea in front and hills behind the property.

  • 4 of 5

Our family party of 5 adults - stayed between Christmas and New Year. The flat is up 2 flights of stairs but worth it for the views. Parking was a bit tricky. We had a couple of problems but the owner promptly referred them to the local manager.

Great location.

Lovely Apartment in Ventnor

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is clean and spacious and has everything you need. It is in a good location with lovely views. Ventnor town centre is within easy walking distance and has everything you need, great restaurants, shops and beach (a visit to Steephill Cove is recommended!)

Jacquie is very helpful and provides all the information you need before your stay and if necessary during your stay. We had a lovely time! Thank you!

Great apartment in Ventnor

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a good location within walking distance of the lovely seaside town Ventnor which has great beach and some lovely shops and restaurants to choose from. The house which was converted into 2 apartments was once lived by Karl Marx so it has a lot of history. Our apartment was spacious and well equipped plus any problems we had during our stay were resolved quickly by the owner. We had great communication with the owner before, during and after our stay.

Nice apartment but very noisy. Difficult parking.

  • 2 of 5

Although the communal entrance hall made a poor first impression, the property itself -once you reached the living quarters (there are 27 stairs) - was bright, airy, spacious and well-equipped.Communication with the owner was good.

The location, however, meant that the apartment was very noisy. We were there during a very warm week in August and needed the windows open day and night. Unfortunately, it is situated on a busy hairpin bend with traffic circling 3 sides of the property. This, combined with being directly opposite a church which chimed the hour every hour, made sleeping with the windows open impossible and led to very uncomfortable nights.

The property overview on the website is very misleading with regard to the parking. It shows a 'P' which usually denotes dedicated parking which was very important to us when selecting the property. However, it became apparent when the check-in arrangements arrived 2 weeks before we were due to go, that there wasn't any dedicated parking, onlyon-street parking (if it was available-which we were assured it would be!) However, on 4 out of the 7 days we were there, there was no near parking available as many building contractor vans were working nearby.

The owners have since made some attempt to rectify this by adding a sentence about the parkingsituation in the full property description. We were also offered a small refund. However,concern over parking each day was not conducive to a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry to hear that you were unhappy about your stay. In all the years that we have owned the apartment, we have never experienced problems with either noise or parking, and all our reviews show how happy our other guests have been. Owners Direct confirmed that we had supplied factual information about parking in our details, and we put you in touch with them so that they could assure you there was absolutely no intention to mislead. When we realised there was a misunderstanding about there not being a private parking space, we did everything we possibly could to make amends, including making a partial refund. When you suggested that your fears about parking was going to spoil your holiday, we offered you the chance to cancel. As you decided against that, we gave you very detailed information about all the parking available within 200m of the building, in every direction. To correct any misimpressions created by your review - there is ample, free, on-street parking all around the building and neither we, our neighbours or guests have ever had to walk more than 3-4 minutes at the very most from car to building. There is also a lay by immediately outside the front door for loading and unloading. The building is on a bus route, but Ventnor is a quiet town and there is very little traffic in the evenings. I'm sorry if the church bells disturbed you - as I say, noise has never been an issue for anyone in the past.

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Ventnor or Bonchurch

The Isle of Wight is a refreshingly charming place, with breathtakingly beautiful scenery without the crowds and traffic. Whilst it is possible to tour around the island in a day, there is such a variety of picturesque small towns and villages, each with their own character, lovely shops and fabulous restaurants/ cafes, as well as tourist attractions, that it is well worth taking time to linger. The island products include excellent artisan foods and drinks and there are many individual and stylish shops.
