About Gillian Mechan

Hello From Sunny Ventnor !

The Isle of Wight was never a place I thought we would call home until a surprise birthday trip organised by Robert for my birthday.

We fell in love with the beauty of Ventnor and by chance spotted Clarence House in the window of a local estate agent.........

And so here we are.

Gillian Mechan purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Gillian Mechan chose Ventnor

We fell in love with Ventnor and the friendliness of "The Islanders".

It truly has a different feel from the mainland and yet is only 1/2 an hour away by Catamaran or Ferry.

A drive through the country lanes brings lots of Ohhhs and Ahhhs at the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the quaint thatched villages.

A superb destination for walkers, cyclists or the hearty tri-athletes. There is much to be seen on the Coastal Path with striking chalk geology featuring heavily here in the south. There are great views out to sea and many interesting places to visit, reflecting the island's heritage and royal patronage over the years. Isle of Wight boasts many wonderful cycling and riding routes around the island's dramatic coast line with varying degrees of difficulty.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment, the location directly opposite Ventnor Park, and within easy walking distance of the town and Steephill Cove was perfect. The owners were really welcoming and the apartment itself is beautifully decorated and very spacious with wonderfully high ceilings. We would defitnitely stay again and recommend the apartment to our friends!

A warm welcome to a beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just had our family Christmas here, while visiting relatives on the island. The location is excellent - quiet, yet within a stone's throw of Ventnor beach and shops - with easy street parking. We received a lovely festive 'welcome pack' on arrival, and the apartment was beautifully decorated with trees and lights. It's a spacious place for four, which we appreciate with two teenage boys, and the second bathroom was especially welcome. The kitchen/dining room was both sociable and a joy to cook in - superbly equipped. Comfy beds and a cosy lounge too. Thank you for a really comfortable stay!

Delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed, comfortable and well maintained apartment. Location is good, overlooking the park and not far to walk into Ventnor for evening meals. Gillian was away whilst we were there but Emma who met us was very friendly and helpful.

What a beautiful apartment. So comfortable and spacious. It's in a quiet road with the park just across the way. No need to take bedding and towels which is a great plus. Gillian and Robert made us feel very welcome.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment, in a really convenient location. We really enjoyed ourselves (our third visit to the IoW) and would recommend the Spyglass and Cantina (restaurants), Tackt-Isle (kayak and sailing courses), Bembridge Windmill, Carisbrooke Castle, Alum Bay and the Needles, Wight Karting, the Botanic garden and Ventnor beach.
