We have a twin room too so combine bookings for 4 guests. If you are booking both rooms contact us as we can give a better rate on the twin room.
The house is 200 metres from the town centre with a good selection of shops, restaurants, coffee bars and takeaways. 100 metres further & you are on the beach.
Buses & trains are nearby too

The space

We are very close to the town, beach, station and buses. There is plenty of free on road parking and a large council pay and display car park at the rear of the house too.
There are plenty of reasonable priced cafes, pubs and restaurants within a short distance, as is the local Conservative Club, where we can get you registered as a visitor if you let us know before your visit. They have snooker, darts, indoor bowls, bingo, quiz nights and entertainment on Saturday evenings. Sandowns' oldest pub The Old Comical is a stones throw away too and they have regular music etc
The house is an ideal base to explore our lovely island or to just enjoy one of the best beaches on the IOW at Sandown.
We can book discounted ferry crossings for you on Red Funnel from Southampton to Cowes if you wish.

Guest access

This is the listing for our double room (see separate listing for the twin room which makes it ideal for a family or group of 4).
We recently installed an en suite toilet, basin and shower in this room. Wireless broadband and a TV is available in the room.
Both rooms can be booked together or as two separate bookings. If booking both rooms contact us for a better price on the twin room.
Children are very welcome although the twin room is more suited to over 5's as it is located at the rear of house and path to the shared bathroom is past the top stair landing.
If eating indoors we request you use the kitchen and dining room rather than taking food into the bedrooms. You are welcome to share the lounge with us.
Sorry but no smoking in house or pets.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to leave you alone or to interact with you. We are an easy going friendly retired couple with a youthful outlook.
We are always around during guests visits to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible and can advise you on best places to visit or if special events are on locally.

Other things to note

We will be happy to give you guidance on the best places to visit and we have an account with Red Funnel so we can book your car ferry crossing and make your stay even more affordable. Some weekends get booked up due to events on the Island so try and book well ahead to avoid problems

We really enjoyed our stay A&J's. What makes it a good choice is the location, exceptionally comfortable bed and the hosts happy to share their tips. Minutes from the bus stops, beach and shopping and restaurant street. All you need for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended!

Alan and Jeanne were charming hosts and most welcoming. Our room was lovely, light, airy and spotlessly clean and so was the bathroom; and our bed really comfortable. Near to the town centre and easy access to just about everything. Would definitely stay there again.

Alan and Jeanne were the best host's we could have asked for, after being a little nervous at first about our first Air B&B experience, upon arrival they made the both us us feel right at home, with an immaculate room very comfortable bed, would strongly reccomend to anyone looking for a short stay, and we would certainly use them again! 10/10!
