We had a very pleasant week at The Auction House and had everything we needed. The owners were kind enough to give us ideas of what we could do whilst on the Isle of Wight. The decor and facilities in the house are great. Having our one year old with us meant we cooked at home most nights so it was good to have everything we would have in our own home. The shower is powerful and the water pressure is excellent. I comment on this because it has been an issue at other places we have stayed. The location is perfect as is a short walk to the town centre of Ryde and to the beautiful Appley beach and esplanade.
A 5 minute walk from the town centre and only another 5 minutes to the sea front which was perfect for evening walks along the beach. House has everything you could need with a few little extras. We will definitely be visiting again.
Lovely mews house in a great location. Walk to the centre and beach but quiet and tucked away. Great to have parking so close to town.
The property itself is immaculate with some lovely welcoming touches. The owners are lovely and nothing is too much trouble.
We will definitely be back.
We stayed in the Auction House with our 2 children and 9 and 6. The house was perfectly situated just off a main road really close to the Main Street in Ryde. It was quiet with off road parking. Everywhere was really accessible with good restaurants, a clean beach and a co-op all within easy walking distance.
The house itself was spotless. Tea, coffee and milk was left for us plus a bottle of wine. All the things you need we're included such as fridge, freezer, washing machine, iron, hairdryer etc. The beds were very very comfortable - good quality mattresses with lightweight duvets for the Summer. There was also a fan in the cupboard which came in useful as well. Plenty of storage and coat hangers were left in the house too. The kitchen was stocked with cleaning products, tin foil, cling film etc etc. All of these things do come in handy when you have 2 kids! There isn't a garden but with the beach so close we didn't need it at all. There was also a TV/dvd plus good wi-fi connection. Kids could stream a film with no problem.
Booking was really really easy and the owners were lovely to correspond with. We had a fabulous time and hope to return again next year. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable base to explore the island.
My partner & i stayed at the auction house with our 2 children during half term. The accomodation was perfect. Lovely open plan living area, cosy bedrooms & 2 toilets (much needed for a family!)very clean & comfy accomodation & ryde was a great place to stay
The house is very close to central Ryde with a car park space right outside the house which made unpacking easy!
The property was very clean and modern with lots of little extras which made it feel luxurious. There was a lovely deep pile rug in the main room with lovely feather cushions on the big cosy sofas. The kitchen had lots of utensils as well as decent crockery. The beds were all very comfy with a decent amount of storage.
The property is only a few minutes walk from the town with its good selection of shops: food, clothing and tourist!
We loved the peaceful location. Although only there for a long weekend, the property ensured that this was a very enjoyable visit to the Island.
Whilst there we walked from Sandown (caught the train there) and attempted to walk the 12 miles back to Ryde. It started off as a very pretty walk but as the thunderstorm set in and the rain became torrential we had to give up and after a meal in a pub caught the taxi back. Would definitely recommend for a clearer day.
Also visited Godshill which was fairly close and pretty, and Osborne House was enjoyable too. All nice and local.
Would definitely recommend staying at this lovely property.
We stayed in the Auction House for a very short rental in September. The owner was easy to contact, and quick to answer emails. Booking, and checking in, were both very easy.
The property is lovely, and perfect for our purposes. Very well set-up, basics already in place (tea, coffee, dish soap, etc), comfortable beds. Quiet, despite being a very short walk to the high street.
