What a fabulous place !!! We stayed from the 15th to the 22nd of July 2022. You don't appreciate from the pictures how roomy the apartment is. Lots of very comfortable furniture and everything you need and a view to die for. We didn't find parking a particular issue. We had a couple of takeaways which were recommended and they were lovely. The peopRead morele on the Island were very friendly and dog friendly. We had such a lovely time and will be definitely coming back soon. Hide

Just perfect, the photos do not do it justice. Much bigger than we expected and so well equipped it was a home from home. Sitting out out on the balcony overlooking the sea having our breakfast or a pre dinner drink was the highlight of our holiday. Ventnor is a lovely seaside town, great places to eat and all within walking distance. The one thingRead more we thought would be an issue was parking, but I happy to say that we never had a problem parking on the road. Hide

Gilmerton is a beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable apartment with a great view of the sea. We had hoped that staying in late October would mean that parking would be easier than others have reported, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. It also meant that we weren't able to make use of the balcony, which would have been excellent to sitRead more out on in warmer weather. Overall it made a lovely base for exploring the island, and has nearby access to the coastal path, a boon for walkers. Hide

Lovely Cottage within walking distance of Ventnor High Street, although it is a steep climb. (but then most places in Ventnor are steep). Parking is a problem.
