Apartment in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Stones Throw From The Beach In A PrivateCul-de-Sac, With A Twitten 1 Minute Walk To Beach
About Karen Dodd
Hi, I'm Karen and I would love to invite you to stay in a very special part of the world - Ventnor. It seems to be where time slows down and I think that is partly because you need to get on a ferry or a hovercraft to get there and for me, that is where the holiday really starts. I fell in love with the Isle of Wight a few years ago and wanted to have a second home there to take my family on wonderful summer and winter holidays. I purchased a bungalow which has now been converted into a penthouse with 4 two bedroom flats underneath which are for sale. I have named the building Kaia which means retreat and I think that is what you will find when you visit. I hope you choose to do so and I know you will have no regrets and will return time and time again, like me!
Karen Dodd purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Karen Dodd chose Ventnor
Kaia is less than one minute's walk to the esplanade and seaside where you can enjoy all the traditional aspects of a wonderful English seaside holiday, summer or winter. The beach is sheltered and sandy and dogs are permitted outside the holiday season. You can stroll along the cliffs to discover wonderful coves which are truly unique to England. Also from the apartment you can walk up to the main shopping area where you have everything you need on your doorstep. Restaurants, bars, shops and more. Stepping onto the island is like stepping back in time - so bring your patience with you, they don't call it the Isle of Wait of nothing!!
What makes this Apartment unique
I love the fact that I can park my car and walk everywhere when I come to Kaia. I can also play tennis at the local club or stroll along to the Botanic Gardens or play bowls. That's when I'm not sitting on the balcony watching the world go by or sunbathing on the wonderful sandy beach, literally a minute's walk away. There are so many superb restaurants and pubs to dine at or take home freshly caught fish and chips. I can also choose to buy a local catch of the day and BBQ on the balcony if I have the energy whilst watching the ships sail by as well as the surfers! Kaia is brand new so there is the air of freshness about her with all the sophistication of a modern apartment. I just love going there, either with my friends and family or for a quiet retreat by myself!

Apartment exactly as described and shown. Could not have had better facilities. Ventnor a great hub.
The property had everything we needed without our clutter. Care and attention has gone in to the design and furnishing and made our holiday memorable. Thank you.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, hope you come again!
Outstanding property with amazing views
Spent a fantastic week in this lovely property. The sea views are amazing and from sitting on the balcony you can hear the sound of the waves breaking on the shore. The apartment well equipped; ideally located for all local amenities with several nice pubs/eateries near by. Stayed as a family group with my mother, husband and 2 teenaged children - all of whom thoroughly enjoyed their stay here.
What a lovely review, thank you so much and I am delighted you all had a fantastic week! Very best wishes, Karen x
We have been regular visitors to the Isle of Wight for many years and Ventnor for over 10 and this apartment is by some distance the best place we have stayed. The views are to die for and the spacious and exceptionally well equipped accommodation is something rather special. All this and just a stone's throw from Ventnor seafront, with its great beach, bars and restaurants. Karen was a pleasure to deal with, responding to our few queries quickly and efficiently. We have already booked for next year!
Thank you so much for such kind and lovely comments and I am delighted that you had a wonderful break in beautiful Ventnor. I am equally delighted that you have already booked for next year and can assure you that the standards will be upheld and the views even better! Many thanks indeed.
Stunning apartment, stunning views!!
Had a wonderful time, the apartment was very well equipped and had everything we needed (and more). The weather was kind to us which meant that we could make the most of the large balcony and enjoy the amazing views. Will definitely be returning for another stay in the future :-)
Thank you so much for your kind comments and I'm so pleased you got to experience Ventnor's wonderful microclimate. Looking forward to your next visit. With very best wishes, Karen x
Excellent apartment overlooking the beach
We stayed at Kaia during the Easter holidays and had a great time. The apartment is not only based in a great location for the beach and local amenities, but also is very well laid out and furnished - having the balcony off the master bedroom and lounge was a real treat to watch the ever changing sea / sky. We are a family 5 and felt we had plenty of space in the penthouse, plus lots of activities in the local area. Would highly recommend staying at Kaia and a pleasure to book through Karen.
Many thanks for your lovely review Adrian and so pleased you all enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again next year and there's a 10% discount for repeat guests.
wonderful property in a wonderful location
This is a brand new property, well furnished and equipped, but its main attraction is the location. You can sit and watch the sea and the beach in comfort or walk less than a minute to the seafront where there are cafe's, pubs and other interesting places and hike off onto the coastal footpath. The gale force winds and occasional rain was fun as we knew we would be warm and snug in Kaia. We loved it, our 3 year old was very content and marvelled at the smart TV. The dog, found it very tranquil as well!
Delighted that you had a great time at Kaia over the New Year and thank you for your lovely comments. The weather in Ventnor is always wonderful come rain or shine but suggest you pop back in the summer so you get to experience the wonderful micro climate and can sit on the beach!
Special interest holidays:
A perfect get away for a beach holiday in the summer or winter, a retreat from a day at one of the many festivals the island has to offer and a fabulous location for a walking holiday where you can bring your 4 legged friend!
Ventnor Beach with it's micro climate is literally one minute walk away through a private alley. Keep on walking and you will discover the Botanical gardens and further still, the stunning Steephill Cove where you can book a table for dinner or stop for lunch or a morning cup of hot chocolate.
Stroll the other way and you end up in Beautiful Bonchurch.
Behind Kaia, walk up some steep steps to the town centre (5 minutes).
Nearest port is Ryde/Fishbourne from Portsmouth
Both Wightlink and Red Funnel have ferries that take you to the island and of course there is the hovercraft from Portsmouth if you choose to leave the car behind.
Isle of Wight is only 23 by 13 so literally everything, is on hand!
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me. I actually live in Lewes, near Brighton so am not on the island but always available to communicate!
If you would like to stay for less than a week please get in touch so we can make arrangements.
Please make payment direct through online banking.
