Location is good especially if you like sea swimming, down side was a double decker bus that was used as a bar, the top deck being level with the balcony. Plus a potraloo behind the bus, it was however only there for 3 days but comes back every weekend. The shower was very dirty and in urgent need of a deep clean, likewise the dishwasher. The apartRead morement is well equipped and has a lovely side view of the sea. We would recommend the apartment to a friend but point out the above issues Hide

A lovely apartment in a lovely location close to the sea and beach at Freshwater Bay. This apartment was easily accessible with no stairs and is only a short, flat walk from the car parking area. For walkers, it is located next to the coastal path and a stroll onto Tennyson Down.

Maybe a lock on the side gate. It was very hot and we felt some of the windows couldnt be left open because a stranger could come through that gate onto the balcony. Otherwise this was a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!

A great location and a fab view of the sea from the sliding doors and balcony area. Plenty of room for two people. Very clean and has all the kitchen equipment you could need. As someone with limited mobility it was great - all on one level from the front door and just a small step up to use the shower. There is another way that has steps from the Read morebalcony but not needed to enter the property from where the vehicle is parked. Bedside sockets for medical equipment if needed. A great stay.

The cottage was wonderful. The proximity to the sea was perfect. It had all the necessary equipment for a short stay. A bbq area for the flats would be a good idea. Even if it is just a non-grass segregated area with a brick place for a portable bbq. The internet could be improved. See above. Other than that I would definitely recommend Tennysons aRead morend would stay there again. Being on the west side is a bonus - not as busy as the east. Hide

An extremely clean and comfy apartment that is in a very pleasant part of the island. However, what the description doesn't say is that the property is next to a very busy main road. If your aim for your holiday is to sit and relax on the balcony, be aware that this overlooks the car park and the very noisy road so not relaxing.
