A good sized house for 8 of us (2 families) to spend Christmas together. Rooms were all good sized and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of cooking equipment, glasses, crockery and cutlery. Nice to find some games and puzzles in the cupboard to play on the wet days when we didn't go out. A quiet location with ample driveway parking. A Read more5-10 minute walk down to Shanklin beaches and very close to the town centre for shops.

The hotel next door actually felt as if it was in the garden of Keats House, when the guests were using the pool, it was almost as if they were in the house with us.

Excellent location and great sized property. Very well equipped. Close to beach and shops. Weve stayed here twice now and enjoyed our relaxing breaks. The en-suite shower was unfortunately out of order for our whole 2 week break which was inconvenient. Also properly would benefit from a new king size bed in the master bedroom. Currently has a doublRead moree which is not the comfiest of beds. Thank you kindly for your feedback, note from the owner - the electrics have been tested and are noted as all safe and working.

Lovely space in the house for the 4 of us, and the property is in a great location for shanklin old town, the chine, and seafront. However, cars seem to ignore the double yellow lines and gate at the front of the property, as we were blocked in on 2 separate days of our holiday !

A very spacious house with a large garden which is a little overlooked by the hotel next door but didn't affect us. The kitchen is well equipped with most things you need.
