Gorgeous and very comfortable apartment with everything you need and more. We were still finding things on the day we were leaving that we couldve used. The views are incredible and a lovely short walk away from the charming town of Ventnor. There were only a couple of times we couldnt find parking straight away ( waited a few minutes) and only oncRead moree did we have to park in the car park at Wheelers Bay which is free and a very short walk away from the apartment.

The cottage is well located and the rooms have been well positioned ensuring the best use of views. Lack of parking is a problems, and for us the lack of a garden with our small dog was an issue.
