    About this property

    Just 500 yards from the beach, this lovely apartment is perfectly based to explore all that the Isle of Wight has to offer.
    9 steps and short sloping path to entrance.
    All on the lower ground floor.
    Living room: With 43" TV and French doors leading to garden.
    Kitchen/dining room: With electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tiled floor.
    Bedroom 1: With double bed.
    Bedroom 2: With twin beds.
    Bedroom 3: With bunk bed.
    Bathroom: With bath, double shower cubicle, toilet and heated towel rail.
    Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack. Enclosed garden with patio and garden furniture. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking. Please note: Couples and family bookings only.
    With a wonderful beach just moments away, this spacious apartment, new for 2018, is located on the eastern side of the island, just outside of Shanklin town. Ideal for families, the property is able to accommodate up to six guests and it is also dog friendly, benefiting from an enclosed rear garden.
    The excellent nearby beach offers a classic British seaside vibe and can be accessed from a set of steps from the top of the cliff path which is close to the property. Alternatively you can gain access from either of the flanking esplanades at Shanklin or Sandown. As this beach is effectively tucked away and not quite as straightforward to reach as its resort neighbours, it is very often quieter during the busier seasons, making it a peaceful alternative for a day on the beach, and the perfect spot for surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding, as the sea is relatively shallow and clear. Take advantage of the instructional school which is located at the back of the beach that offers a whole range of water sports activities for all ages and abilities. There are beach huts which you can look to hire and also a number of benches to sit on along the sea wall path, and there is also a café and barbecue area which is always popular during the summer season. When the tide is further in and the golden sands briefly disappear, the walk along the sea wall between Sandown and Shanklin is highly recommended as it offers a wide, flat path which is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.
    Away from the beach, the town of Shanklin hosts a multitude of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants to enjoy. The old village is world famous with its pretty thatched pubs, rock shop, cosy tea rooms, restaurants and craft shops. The esplanade is packed full of amusements and crazy golf, as well as several waterfront eateries.
    Neighbouring Sandown is a truly traditional beach resort with pier, amusements and pitch and putt. The Isle of Wight Zoo, and the Dinosaur Isle attraction can be found at the northern end of the esplanade towards Yaverland and Culver Down. The town is brimming with attractions to entertain visitors, most of them right on the beach front itself, so again you never have to stray too far from the sand. Further afield, there are numerous attractions to discover for all ages on this beautiful sunny island. To the west you’ll find The Needles Landmark Attraction with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Venture north towards Cowes and you can pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and Gardens, or perhaps go south past Ventnor down to Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK. Whatever direction in which you decide to head, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach 530 yards. Shop 175 yards, pub and restaurant 70 yards.

    "Excellent location for coastal path and beach. Bus stop and local supermarket only one or two minutes walk away. Accommodation is excellent. Huge bathroom and the kitchen has a range of appliances. Two minor issues. One of the steps down to the front door requires repairs as it has a broken and uneven surface. The WiFi needs an extender installed as signal is poor in the living room and non existant in the garden. Overall a very pleasant stay was had and I will be booking again next year."

    "rained a lot,so could have done with a dvd player when stuck in."

    "This flat has everything, except a dish washer. It is extremely comfortable and all rooms are more than an adequate size. We chose what must have been the coldest week in June ever, but the heating was more than sufficient to deal with it. we have stayed in many holiday 'cottages' and this has to be our 1st choice from now on. The path and steps down to the entrance is ok even for someone who is slightly disabled like me, but not accessible for a wheelchair. Just enjoy the area and the facilities of the flat, you won't be disappointed."
