“Sweet little pet friendly chalet”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed here for a few days and it was lovely!! We stay in the iow a lot and like to try different areas but now we have found this little place, we might not try anywhere else! Owners are so lovely and cant do enough, a little welcome pack in the room which was so handy as we forgot milk!! In a good area to walk the dog. cannot recommend enough! Cant wait to come back! Must have a car as getting around the Island is a must! Ideal stay when you are visiting family and friends like we do! Thanks to the owners for having us!

Thank you for a smashing review Emm. We're touched. It was good to meet you all, and we would welcome you back again. We've just completed a second chalet (Fossils Rest) so should always have space for you. Thanks again I&D.

“Clean, well provisioned, pet friendly, free wifi, good location, friendly owner.”
Reviewed 29 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

10 minute amble down to the beach and Sandown for shops, etc. 5 minute drive to Aldi & Morrisons supermarkets. Lovely countryside and coast. Ventnor Botanic Gardens a must see. Old world thatched charm at Shanklin. Lots more places to visit. It was our first stay on the Isle of Wight. We will be back.
Accommodation was clean, well provisioned with free wifi and dog-friendly. It was a little small with no wardrobe space but was nevertheless a good place to stay. The owners, also dog-lovers, were friendly and helpful with good communication prior to our visit.

Thank you for your lovely review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the Island and our little part of it. We've tried to maximise the use of space in the chalet hence the novel hanging rails rather than conventional wardrobes, but we will review this at the end of the season. We would love to see you all again at any time. Thanks again.I&D

“Amazing home from home”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Amazing peaceful location. Right by the best dog friendly beaches made this our choice, so the whole family can enjoy. Everywhere on the Island is easily accessible and Sandown only a short stroll. The chalet is a total credit to the owners. Beautifully furnished and decorated, but its the care and thought in all those little things that make' Fossils Reach' exceptional. Everything is here and thought of. My self and my teenage daughter had a lovely break, and so did her Assistance dog Harley Quinn. So nice the owners are just completing a second Chalet 'Fossils Rest', a great opportunity for larger families to book both chalets and enjoy together. We will certainly be coming back ourselves.

“So peaceful and stress free”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned from a week at Sandown Bay Isle of Wight. We stayed at 106 Fossils Reach Chalet. We were put off by chalet holidays about 10 years ago on the Isle of Wight. Damp, dark and smelly but this chalet has renewed our faith in this kind of accommodation. The Chalet was very bright and cheerful. We loved the seaside theme. The free wifi was a bonus. The beds were very comfortable even the adult size bunk beds. I am 6'1. Very welcoming after a days long walk. Our favorite walk was from the Holiday centre to Sandown bay and along to Shanklin bay, promenade all the way. No need for a car there is good bus service on the Island. Ian and Diane the owners were very welcoming. we had no problems with the Chalet but I am sure they would have helped us out if we did. The end of a perfect week. I do not normally write reviews but I felt I had to this time.
