We have a double room available too so combine bookings for 4 people. Our house is very conveniently located just 200 metres from the town centre with shops, coffee bars, restaurants and takeaways. Another 100 metres and you are on the beach.

The space

We are very close to the town, beach, station and buses.
If you look on the aerial photo on the right hand centre we are the brown house on the corner by the car park.
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.

This listing is for our twin bedded room with TV. Shared use of our main bathroom with shower/bath, basin and toilet. If nobody else is staying in the double room we will let you use the en-suite there.

Children are very welcome although more suited to over 5's as the room is at rear of house and path to bathroom is past the top stair landing.

Guest access

Our twin bedroom has Freeview TV , wardrobe and chest of drawers, with use of our bathroom which has a bath with power shower, basin and w.c.
We generally try to limit use of house by one party and this room is good for children (suggest aged over 5 though) or two friends. sharing.
The bathroom is accessed by walking past the top landing and stairs which is why we suggest better for children over 5, although we have never had any problems with younger children

You are welcome to share our lounge and kitchen (if desired). We request any meals are taken in the dining room and not in the bedrooms. We are happy for guests to mingle with us, or keep to themselves, whichever suits them best.

Our hosts made us feel very welcome. It was easy to find out local information & they kindly lent us a good map to drive around with! We were invited to the theatre & advised what was on & parking arrangements though we were too tired to go. Parking was a little tricky before 6pm but it was not a problem really. Accommodation was very clean, comfortable & neat. They allowed us to use the ensuite in the other room which was lovely but we found the sink a bit small. Kind & friendly hosts & would be happy to return

The house was neat, the kitchen fantastic, the room cosy, the neighbourhood quiet and Sainsbury's is nearby! The beach is only a 20 minute stroll away and there were some good fossils kicking around if you know what to look for. Alan and Jeanne really were friendly and helpful. Thanks for the hospitality, and a fantastic and relaxing stay. Hope you have a really good Christmas and New Year! =) I'll definitely consider coming back again if I return to the Isle of Wight.
