Keats house is very welcoming and cosy. The kitchen is very well equipped even to bake cakes! So many extras have been thought of for a perfect stay, including a litre of milk in the fridge, umbrellas and extra rain coats. Very well organized by telling everything you would need to know in a book folder.

This is a fabulous house for a holiday. Lovely big rooms and lots of space. The garden area is superb and if lucky enough to get sunny weather, many a day could be spent relaxing in the garden if you didn't want to be out touring every day. Ideally situated as within walking distance of the beach and the lovely town of Shanklin and with hotels on tRead morehe doorstep welcoming non residents, you don't have to go far for an evening out. A number of supermarkets just a short drive away. Hide

Great house in a great location, and the garden is lovely for children to enjoy and dogs. The house itself needs a bit of a refresh, but it didn't spoil our enjoy of this property.

Home from home , everything to hand. Very clean and comfortable. Would return again

Reviewed by Janet 3rd May 2019

The location was excellent, being about 10 minutes walk from the seafront in one direction or Shanklin old town in the other. The garden was lovely and, being fully enclosed, was safe for the children and dog to run around in. The teabags, milk, biscuits etc left out for us on arrival were very welcome.

A lovely house, and extremely homely and comfortable. The big garden is excellent. Lovely to be just a stroll away from the sea front at Shanklin and The Chine.
