“Absolutely first class in every way”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

To say our stay at Island View in Lymington was enjoyable is an understatement!

This light and airy split-level apartment is a stunning mix of traditional (large sash windows and the cosiness of the place) mixed with contemporary fixtures and fittings of a very high standard. Everything about the place oozes quality, and you can tell that every little detail and piece of furniture has been thoughtfully purchased and placed there to be just right.

My friend and I were looking for a relaxed few days away exploring the New Forest area, and Island View provided the perfect base for exactly that. We actually felt slightly disappointed when we were out and about, in that we were missing out on time in the property!

The secure gates and easy access to the property from Lymington High Street were a real bonus too, excellent instructions given for locating it and also various information such as the WiFi, facilities and insutructions for everything.

The view over to the Solent and the Isle of Wight from the rear of the property is also very pleasant.

The beds were comfy, there's loads of quality bedroom storage, the stunning television great, and the kitchen has everything I could think you'd wish for when cooking and living there (washing machine, dishwasher etc and tablets are provided too – nice touch). Other thoughtful touches were things like milk in the fridge when we got there, plus some very nice biscuits! Quality towels and toiletries also provided.

It is a very light apartment and there's both blinds and curtains on the windows to keep the light to a minimum when sleeping. The front bedroom gets some noise from the High Street (due to the traditional sash windows), notably on the Saturday morning when we were there when the local market starts early, but this wasn't an issue.

There's a great book on the bookshelf called 'Secret Lymington', written and illustrated by a local writer/artist – this was really useful in finding some hidden gems around the area such as Buckland Rings, Roydon Woods and a fantastic walk over the local coastal nature reserve to Hurst Spit and Castle, overlooking the Isle of Wight.

It really is a proper 'home from home' and the only drawback was having to leave the place! Really could not recommend this place highly enough. A credit to the owners.

Thank you. Would like to visit again soon.

“A lovely stay with a view”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Island View is a beautiful and spacious apartment in the centre of Lymington. Visitors can expect to enjoy the bustling town on their doorstep contrasting with sweeping seascape towards Hurst Castle, the Solent and the Isle of Wight beyond.

The interior decor is of a high standard with pleasing details, such as the amazing coffee machine. It is equip with everything you need to enjoy a long weekend or extended stay. A very comfortable lounge and well fitted kitchen lend themselves to home dining. Alternatively Lymington offers a range of good eateries, from the reliable pizza express and prezzo to the more exotic.

You will be guaranteed a good nights sleep with well appointed and comfortable bedrooms. Enjoy spending time in the charming harbour town or beyond into the New Forest.

We had a really enjoyable time and will be back soon.
