Located on the southeast coast of the Isle of Wight and enjoying fantastic sea views, this lovely stone and flint house is just a short walk from the centre of the charming seaside resort of Ventnor.

Ventnor is a delightful small seaside resort with a range of interesting shops, excellent restaurants, public houses, wine bars and charming gardens. It has a secluded beach where you can enjoy swimming, paddling and fishing, and fresh fish can be purchased daily from the harbour. The location is renowned for its microclimate which allows exotic species of plants to grow and a number of these can be seen in the renowned Botanic Garden. There is a lovely coastal walk linking Ventnor with Shanklin and there are many beautiful walks further inland. The larger sandy beaches of Sandown and Shanklin are just a short drive away, and you can also enjoy such hidden gems as Bonchurch and Steephill Cove.

Built in 1866 by Captain Mark Huish, this fantastic property stands at the end of a small terrace of similar stone and flint houses, and offers sea views from the three upper floors. The main entrance, via an ancient gothic style front door, is on the first floor, where you will find the bright and welcoming lounge. With comfy seating, a traditional wood burner, TV, Blu-ray DVD and music system with Bluetooth, this is a lovely space to relax in at the end of a great day. You will also find a charming dining room where you can enjoy a meal in style. Heading down to the ground floor you will find a stylishly designed kitchen with an electric double oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and coffee maker. The freezer and washer/dryer are housed in a nearby utility area. There is also a ground-floor WC. Stairs take you up to the second floor where you will find a master bedroom with a king-size double bed and sea views, and an adjacent bathroom with a Victorian style bath on clawed feet, hand-held shower, separate walk-in shower and a WC. Heading up to the third floor there are two more lovely bedrooms. There’s a double bedroom with sea views and a king-size bed, as well as an attractive twin bedroom with 2ft 6ins beds for children.

We stayed for 1 week with 2 adults and 1 dog in May 2021. Ventnor is great and you have a great beach and lots of shops at walking distance. This property is at the highest point of Ventnor, so there is a fairly steep walk back from the beach. The property is old, quirky and certainly interesting. Nice bathroom.

Very enjoyable stay (if you don't mind stairs!). Clean, well-equipped and with good views from the living room and two of the bedrooms. Parking nearby was sometimes problematic, and a TV in the kitchen would have been nice, but neither would deter us from staying at Huish House again.

Everything we needed was provided for. Very comfortable bed and sofa. Sea views from every room. Fantastic location just a short (downhill) stroll to the town and beach. Bit harder to get back up the hill but a stop off at the ice cream parlour makes it easier! Great pubs with lovely food within walking distance or a short drive.

This nice tall property was clean and tidy. It just needs some TLC and property management to bring it back to the standard expected of visiting guests.

The cottage itself provides everything as stated in the description on the website but what I hadn't fully taken into account was the fact that the kitchen was on the ground floor so any meals you wanted to have in the dining or living room involved transporting up a narrow flight of stairs. Another slight drawback which anyone with small children Read moreshould note is that the house leads directly onto a road with moderate traffic flow and is also on a bus route. Hide

Property had been cleaned thoroughly before we arrived. The house is well-equipped and we appreciated the WiFi. However, be wary of the wide-angle photos. Apart from the bathroom, all rooms are smaller than they appear on the website. Our family of two children and two adults could not sit comfortably together in the living room. There is no outdooRead morer space at all. The house opens on to a busy road with buses and cars going past at speed. We did enjoy the glorious sea views. Hide

Excellent house with everything you need whilst away. Nice quiet area, the road is near but not lots of traffic. Comfortable bed and lovely sea views. Handy bus stops just out side, easy way to see the island. Yes there are lots of steps, but it is a house over 4 floors.
