About the property

Immaculate house close to beaches, harbour, village shops and countryside

Immaculate 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom family holiday home, recently refurbished and maintained to a very high standard, and available to rent for a handful of weeks per year.

Linen, towels and weekly cleaning are all included and provided within the rental charge quoted.

Midships forms part of an attractive row of period houses, located in an excellent position in the heart of Bembridge.

The house is situated a walk away from the main beaches at Lane End and Forelands, local shops, and the village of Bembridge with its coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, butcher, baker, farm shop and fishmongers supplying locally caught fresh fish. The harbour, sailing clubs and beautiful rolling countryside are also all within walking distance.

The house comprises of the following:

Off street parking for 2 cars. Light sitting room with TV/DVD Player, Freeview satellite television with access to online streaming services. Large sofas providing seating for 6-8 and a selection games to play. Hallway leads to stairs and into the kitchen dining room with 2 sets of french doors leading out to the garden and terrace. The kitchen is very well equipped with integrated AEG appliances, breakfast bar and large round dining table that seats 8 people. Upstairs on the 1st floor there is a twin room with garden views; A second larger twin room also with garden views; A comfortable double bedroom and a good size family bathroom with a large walk in shower with high pressure hot water system. Upstairs to the 2nd floor the stairs lead to the master suite with king size bed and en suite bathroom room with a large bath. To the rear of the property there is a good-sized, lawned garden with a terraced area with rattan garden dining furniture and a Weber Kettle BBQ. To the side there is an outside shower to wash down wetsuits and wet beach/sailing gear after a day on the beach or on the water.

The house is double glazed and benefits from gas fired central heating which provides constant high pressure hot water and central heating which is controlled by a thermostat in the kitchen.

This is our much loved private holiday home and is used regularly by us throughout the year, but we are also keen for it to be enjoyed as a rental property by friends and families for a handful of weeks in the year. We manage all the bookings ourselves and are available by email or phone to answer any questions you may have.

We have a fantastic cleaner and caretaker who lives nearby and looks after the house for us. We also benefit from having a builder and maintenance manager who knows the house inside out having completely gutted and renovated it for us in 2016! He lives around the corner and is available on call at any time to sort any issues.

All sheets,towels and weekly cleaning are included as well as broadband internet, satellite TV and gas central heating.

About Tom S

We have 3 children and 2 dogs and live in Sussex and regularly visit the Isle of Wight for weekends and during the school holidays. We love our house in Bembridge and really enjoy getting away and enjoying the much slower pace of life it offers!

Tom S purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

We love our house because it offers so much more space than it looks from the outside and very comfortably sleeps 8 people or two families with plenty of space for everyone. The location is fantastic being just outside the village to avoid the issues noise and restricted parking but still close enough to walk everywhere. There is a good pub just down the road (only 1 min walk!). The beaches at Forelands and the lifeboat station at Lane End are only 10 mins walk away. The fantastic local co-op supermarket is only 3-4 mins walk selling everything you need including fresh fruit and vegetables, wine and beer and it has an in store bakery too. In the opposite direction, the windmill and surrounding countryside are just 5 mins walk and provide access to some amazing dog walks and some breathtaking views across the Island.

Spotless, modern and great for a family

  • 5 of 5

Midships was as lovely as the pictures promised. A quiet, convenient location that served as a great base for exploring the island. It was modern, warm, private, and spotlessly clean. It was very well-equipped with games, devices and TV/music options, and we needed for nothing. The owner was great to deal with, and very responsive. Bembridge is a sweet little place, with easy access to the Crab and Lobster Inn, the beach, a park, a great fishmongers, and some characterful shops. Absolutely great holiday in a lovely home.

Lovely house, well-equipped, relaxing, and a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was very well-equipped! We were able to bring our dog, which was really important for us. I wasn’t stressed about having him there because the downstairs flooring is laminate, which will not get damaged by a dog! So well thought out. The large, fenced yard was also amazing to have. Nice bedrooms with comfortable beds.

The house is an easy walk to the local beach and the small village centre offers everything you need. The island is also really easy to travel and worth visiting as much as possible.

You have to try the Mermaid’s Gin while on the island! It’s locally-made and just delicious.
