“Lovely Villa and a very helpful landlady”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Returned around a week ago from 2 weeks the newly converted A]bury Villa in Shanklin IOW, was very homely with everything you need for any length of stay. We arrived to to be meet by the very helpful Elaine who had supplied a Hamper full of various goodies to get started and save visits to the shops. Despite the mixed weather we enjoyed the stay and Elaine was very kind to advise and help on any questions we had would very again

“exquisite cottage and the kindest landlady ever”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Sorry that I reviewed your place this late. Elaine was the kindest and warmhearted land lady ever. We arrived almost midnight and she was so considerate waiting for us. She welcomed us with a huge welcome basket of food and drinks in the fridge. The moment we set foot in the cottage, we were amazed by the exquisite decoration. The double master room was so comfy. The single room were like a room for princesses although we had two young men staying the room which made them a bit girly ^v^. The color collections in the rooms are different yet so harmonious. Sorry that it's beyond my vocabulary to describe how gorgeous that cottage was.
Again our landlady Elaine, when she heard that we ran out of oil and foil, she brought them. When we asked her about BBQ, she bought us one disposal BBQ and another new BBQ with charcoals... and she personally set up the party table in the garden although we had no time to enjoy since we had to go to a concert. But she was so considerate and we owe her a million thanks.

“Lovely stay, lovely accommodation and even lovely weather in April!”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2014 and had a lovely stay. Elaine made us very welcome, the cottage was like a home from home, very light and lovely, and as we had beautiful weather it couldn't have been better. The welcoming hamper was especially useful as immediately we arrived, we unpacked and then walked straight up to see Suggs at the Shanklin Theatre on our first evening (a brilliant and unexpectedly amusing show), and thereafter unexpectedly even had chances to sit on deckchairs on Shanklin Beach roasting in the sun. Did not want to go home at the end of the stay - highly recommended.
