“You Just Can't Keep Us Away!”
Reviewed 10 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This is our sixth visit and we are so happy that we found this lovely apartment. The owner is a really lovely lady and our son is always pleased to see her. Everything in the apartment is perfect and your every need has been thought of and provided for. We again were fortunate to have great weather and it is such a pleasure to be able to watch the sea from the terrace and on a couple of days a week the local sailing club is out in full force providing an excellent display of sails. The Isle of Wight is a very friendly place and everyone will talk to you as you go about your day. Just as England used to be! We are already looking forward to our visit next year. Thank you for our perfect holiday.

“Great Apartment”
Reviewed 7 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Once again we have stayed in this apartment, this being our forth time. As always the apartment was clean and well equipped with all you need for an enjoyable holiday on the seafront with a dedicated car parking space, a huge bonus. The owner as always was great, very helpful and nothing was to much bother. The owner also runs an adjacent beach shop and cafe, great cream teas and coffee.Looking forward to our next visit. Cannot recommend enough.

“Amazing Location on The Esplanade”
Reviewed 3 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We have just come back from a superb week at the Seagull View Apartment. The location was second to none with beautiful sea views. The apartment was well equipped, clean and everything we were looking for. We could relax on the sun patio and in the evening there are numerous eating establishments within a short walk which suited my 90 year old father! So, what with wonderful sunshine, we had a marvelous holiday. We will be back.

“Great location, beach on the doorstep.”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This is the first time we have rented an apartment in Shanklin. What a great choice we made. The apartment is SUPERB, very homely, didn't want to leave. A lovely touch was the complimentary bottle of wine and flowers. Lots of restaurants/bars nearby, all serving great food. Sara is a lovely person, who has a shop in front of the building, selling delicioius scones, coffees, etc. We will definately be back and highly recommend it.

“Can’t keep us away.”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Just returned from another stay in the Seagull View.
It’s like going home, but with a view that we can only ever dream of
The weather wasn’t the best, but Sara’s beautiful apartment made staying in a pleasure, it’s really cosy and comfortable with all mod cons and a television that you don’t have to hang out of the window whilst twiddling with the aerial, like you have to in some holiday homes.
Sara is on hand if you ever need her, honestly I have said it before and I mean it, this lady is just lovely, I really didn’t think I could love the Isle of Wight anymore than I already did, then I met Sara, she makes it even more special.

“Beautiful Setting for a Beautiful Flat.”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Yet again we have been delighted with everything about the property. You can tell that a lot of thought has gone in to the place and what you would need on holiday. This is our 5th visit, so Sara is clearly getting everything right. What a very kind lady. We were again blessed with spectacular weather so we had lots of time to explore the island again. It is great, though, to know that you have a very comfortable place to come back to, and the real bonus of a parking space. The sea view from the living room is great and it is so restful to be able to sit on the terrace and listen to the waves in the evening, Seagull View definitely has all you can possibly want for a relaxing holiday. See you next year!
