About Owner

My mother was born on the Island and we have been visitors for many years. We are still finding things to do, there is so much in a compact place.

Having selected a short list of places to buy a property, we felt Shanklin has a lot to offer, with a good shopping centre, theatre, loads of restaurants and pubs not to mention a great beach.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Owner chose Isle of Wight

When we walked through the door the apartment just felt right. It was light and spacious inside with a great location, being close to a number of different walks. The beach is within 5 minutes walk as is the park and village centre. The town is about 10 minutes walk and the station a couple of minutes further.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment enjoys a peaceful location with a view from the balcony across Shanklin and Sandown bays, to Culver Down and on a clear day, to the mainland.

Lovely spacious apartment with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Large, clean flat with plenty of living space and balcony to enjoy. Very comfortable beds and fans provided for the hot IOW weather. There was also little extras to make life a bit easier - maps of local areas, leaflets of things to do, places to eat, as well as dishwasher tablets, fairy liquid and bin bags (things which you often have to dash out and buy straight away). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful. We loved the space, the balcony, the large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms..............I could sing the praises of this place all day. It was everything we hoped for and more............the pictures do not do it justice. We felt we had luxury for a bargain price. There was everything you needed...........and we met the owner on the first day who explained how everything worked. We very much enjoyed the bottle of wine which we had on the balcony watching the sun go down. Absolute bliss.

walkers from Wales and Stroud

  • 4 of 5

Apartment met our every need with thoughtful extras! Spacious and clean, close to beach and eateries. I-O-W proved excellent for walking with lots of paths to choose from, and superb wildlife from red squirrels to birdlife and butterfly species rarely seen elsewhere.
