The 5 priory apartment was lovely. Everything you needed was there. Get location with a beautiful view from the balcony/ decking area. I would recommend anyone to go and I look forward to going there again.

“Lovely, Well Equipped Apartment”

Had a fantastic week here. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and has terrific views from the large decking area. It's a bit of a walk back up from the town but no problem if you are reasonably fit (we are both mid 50s and managed fine).

“Perfect from start to finish!!!”

Booked this apartment through Holiday Lettings and the first thing I noticed was how caring and informative the owner was to ensure that you knew everything about the Island and the apartment. We had a tiny query whilst on holiday and he was immediately contactable and did everything he could to ensure our problem was rectified immediately. The apartment has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. We did a tour of the Island and had the best fortnight ever! The views from the decking are amazing and due to the fabulous weather we had breakfast and dinner out on the decking most days. A top quality apartment in a lovely quiet area of Shanklin.

“What a view”

A really good location with an apartment that had all you required for a relaxing or energetic break.
The view from the decking area was perfect, a well kept garden and trees plus a sea view looking across the bay towards Shanklin, Sandown and the cliffs beyond.
Would recommend this property.

A comfortable modern apartment, very light and bright with everything we needed and plenty of storage space. The dishwasher and WiFi were much appreciated. We enjoyed sitting out on the very large balcony overlooking the sea. We would certainly re-book if we return to the Isle of Wight.
