Large double bedroom with sea view (15x13 feet), private terrace and adjacent private shower/toilet. Coffee/tea/snacks in room. Guests are always delighted by their safaris in our garden where we have resident badgers, red squirrels, foxes and glow worms throughout the year. Dolphins and seals can sometimes be seen too just 15 min walk to our nearest beach. Great location for coastal or country walks
This large downstairs double-bed room (size 15x13 feet/4.5x4 metres) has TV with DVD player and adjacent private shower room and toilet (5x3 feet/1.5x1 metres). The room is most suitable for a maximum of 2 adults but there is room for a blowup mattress on the floor or travel cot for an infant or a baby. You will also have your own private terrace with views of the mature garden and the sea. We have a second smaller upstairs room with side window views of the sea for short Airbnb stays if family or friends want to also stay.
We provide towels, hair dryer, alongside complimentary shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. There are coffee and tea making facilities in your room and snacks too (Ellemiek loves baking :-).
If there is anything else you may need, feel free to ask, we would be happy to help.
The room is part of a 5 bedroom historic Victorian villa occupied by the family. Cars are parked on our land by our double garage, then it is a short walk 140 feet/40 metres down a gravel slope drive to our secluded house.
The Botanic Gardens is only a few minutes walk and there are several beaches closeby too. One of our favourites is Steephill Cove where they sell fantastic crab pasties.
Guests are welcome to explore our 2 acres of mature garden and woodland again with glorious panoramic sea and coastal views, however there is no guest access to the upstairs outdoor balcony. Make yourself at home!
Interaction with guests
As this is our home, we are on hand to give advice whenever it is needed, however respect the need for privacy, peace and quiet. We are a friendly and sociable well travelled family.
Other things to note
Living here with us are also our two lovely cats, Socks and Moon. They are both lovely and friendly and are mainly outdoors enjoying the garden, but please be aware if you suffer from allergies.
We want you to feel relaxed and welcome in our home, and trust you will take good care of a place that is special to our family. We only have a few house requests: smoking only outdoors and no pets. The family rooms, kitchen and upstairs outdoor balcony are private and not accessible to Airbnb guests, however guests have open access to the garden where they are welcome to relax.

We are an active family of 4 who love to travel. We love doing house swaps and are excited to host others who love traveling too, when we are on the island. We have lived in Holland, America (Colorado and Utah), Morocco, Spain and Saint Helena and have travelled to 4 of the 5 continents (never quite made it as far as Australia, but our family did host an Australian exchange student once :-)
