Appealing three-storey town house close to Shanklin Beach and town centre. This spacious accommodation is a superb choice for families looking to tour the Isle of Wight.

The lovely town house is one of a pair of properties very attractively situated in the delightful small seaside resort of Shanklin on the south east coast of the Isle of Wight. It enjoys lovely open sea views from its balconies and from the sitting room and second double bedroom. This is combined with open views from the front facing rooms across the coastal aspect of the town towards lovely downland and the Culver Cliffs. The lovely sandy beach of Shanklin is within a 10 minute walk. The sand gently slopes down into the water making it ideal for swimming and paddling. The seafront offers various places to eat plus traditional seaside entertainments and crazy golf. There is easy access via a zig zag path or a lift which descends to the Esplanade. The charming old village of Shanklin is less than a 5 minute walk away. Here there are a variety of pretty thatched cottages, tea shops, a public house and Shanklin Chine which provides another point of access to the sea. Also nearby is Shanklin Theatre and the shopping centre of the town.

Sandcastles has been built on three levels to take full advantage of the views. From the ground floor stairs ascend to a landing with double doors opening into a superb and spacious living room with sea views, comfortable sofas, a flat screen television with Freeview; a delightful dining area with Juliet balcony, a full balcony with an open view of the sea; a superb fitted kitchen with an electric cooker and ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Also on this floor is a spacious cloakroom with WC and basin. Stairs lead up to three delightful bedrooms - a lovely room with a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, balcony and a window with an open sea view; a master bedroom with a double bed, wardrobe, Juliet balcony with views across the downs and an en-suite shower room with built in shower, basin and WC; a single bedroom which can accommodate two with the addition of the full size trundle bed; a lovely tiled family bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, basin and WC. A travel cot/high chair can be provided. The house is centrally heated and double glazed. Heating and electricity without extra charge. Complimentary high speed WiFi provided.

Sandcastles has a lovely enclosed terrace accessed from the first floor living areas with garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. Visitors can park one car in a garage beneath the property and a second car directly behind it on the driveway. A train service links Shanklin, with Sandown, Brading and Ryde with interlinked boat services to the mainland at Portsmouth. The bus services from Shanklin is also very good making this an ideal location to come without a car.

Good location with sea views. Steep slope to park the car on, steep to walk down and up too so not necessarily suitable for those with walking difficulties. Found it difficult to park the car in the garage so left the car outside. Also on 3 floors so bear that in mind. Well equipped. Comfortable. Would not hesitate to book again.

Spent a lovely week at Sandcastles, views from the windows and patio doors were very picturesque of the sea. Very comfortable beds and sofas. Very well equipped throughout and a bonus of off street parking and a garage to park your car if you preferred.

This was our second stay at Sandcastles. Once again we were very happy with the accommodation. Very clean and tidy with an optional mid fortnightly visit from the housekeeper. Views are magnificent of the downs and Shanklin itself, plus you can also see the bay from the front balconys and side windows. Entry of room for parking and access to the gaRead morerage for a vehicle or if you just want to store bikes or beach stuff etc. Only about a five minute walk from the esplanade and beach. Hide

Sandcastles is very well situated on a quiet road and is only a few minutes walk from either the seafront or shops, restaurants and pubs. It is very well equipped, in excellent decorative order and very well managed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property. It was equipped beyond what we expected and everywhere was beautifully clean, during our two week stay there was even a visit from the cleaner to change sheets, and towels etc. Access to the garage was much appreciated as we could keep our bikes in there. There were instructions for all appRead moreliances and even basic tools should they have been be required. There was more than enough room for our party of five. Hide

The house was lovely, seemed quite new and consequently modern. It was almost home from home, well equipped and comfortable. The welcome pack was gratefully received; especially as we arrived late in the evening. We had a great holiday, enhanced by the great accommodation.
