Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England
Based on the style of a beautiful Victorian villa, Kaia sits at the top of this newly created development. She has had a complete transformation from a quirky 3 bedroom bungalow to a stunning, contemporary brand new penthouse completed March 2015. With modern fittings, stylish kitchen, solid oak floors, internet and of course private parking she remains a hidden jewel in a privately owned road away from the busy esplanade yet less than 2 minutes walk to the beach via a 'secret 'twitten'.

Kaia (meaning home or retreat) is the perfect location. Walk to the safe and sandy beach, the numerous restaurants, pubs, amusements, shops etc. and along the scenic coastal path to discover hidden fisherman's coves or to purchase fresh fish from the local market. Head up from Kaia to access the main shopping thoroughfare with a super...

We had a wonderful stay with a young baby, two teenagers and in-laws. Kaia instantly felt like home and accommodated us all really well. A wonderful spot for touring the Island but also plenty to do on the doorstep. Always something to entertain you with...More

Additional amenities & feature info
Kaia is a BRAND NEW 3 BEDROOM PENTHOUSE (completed March 2015). She is surrounded by a large balcony which can be used to dine al fresco or simply as a relaxing place to sit and read.

Hi Vincent, many thanks for your enquiry and would love you to come and stay at Kaia over the New Year period from 26 December departing 1 Jan 2017.

There is parking on site, Wifi, Smart TV with Netflix and all utilities provided for. I will also try and find some tinsel for your lovely moggy!

The cost will be £1100 for the week and I would require 50% deposit and the balance to be paid 8 weeks before.

Do let me know if you would like to go ahead.

Best wishes

About the neighbourhood
All around Ventnor you will find beautiful walks and dramatic viewpoints both in the summer and the winter.

Ventnor is famous for its warm micro climate. The esplanade has a crescent shaped part sand, part shingle beach, ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Pubs, cafes and restaurants are dotted along the seafront and there is a small harbour from which you can purchase local seafood; all on your doorstep enabling you to leave your car behind.

The Island shaped paddling pool is popular with small children. Spectacular cliff walks towards Bonchurch or Steephill Cove with outstanding coastal views are all close by.

The Cascade leads up to the centre of town, which is built on a series of zigzag terraces and steeped in history offering character Victorian buildings. There are friendly s...
