“Perfect house for a family mini-break”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

This house made our family weekend away feel like a luxury mini-break.

Who would have thought a trip with a 3 month old and a 3 year old could be so relaxing and feel so five star?!

The house is beautifully decorated, but practical enough that we felt comfortable letting our toddler roam about. The beds, linen, duvets and pillows are top quality and so comfy. Plus the walls are thick enough for the kids not to disturb each other in the night, so we all slept very peacefully.

I knew from previous reviews how well- equipped the house was, which made packing very easy. From essentials like dishwasher tablets to treats like the welcome tray of wine and shortbread, the owners have thought of everything you might need.

And the gorgeous toiletries in the luxury bathrooms make you feel very pampered - it reminded me of expensive hotel living before kids came along which was lovely!

Location is perfect with the shops, restaurants and seafront of Ryde a short walk away (Olivio was lovely - great food and family friendly). We were there end Sept and was still warm enough to play on the beach - and enjoy the trampolining on the seafront!

We also loved the old steam railway - don't miss the train themed playground and Thomas tracks to play with along the platform when you've finished your train ride!

Quarr Abbey is a lovely stop on the short drive back to the Fishbourne ferry - our little one loved feeding the pigs and the cakes in the tea room are fabulous.

We will definitely be returning for future holidays, and will be booking into this house early as it is (understandably!) very popular.

“Nice and close to amenities”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Nice house close to amenities in town centre. Co-op and Costa round the corner 5 mins away.
Accommodation comfortable and everything you need to hand. With a young family we would probably go for somewhere with garden /beach access if we return as were conscious of neighbours in courtyard and cars coming in from other residents but no issue with them at all. Location in nice and quiet would recommend.

Thank you for your review, Vee. Just to clarify for future guests there are only two other permanent residents so the car traffic is minimal.

“Ideal location and well-maintained house”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

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.

“Perfect location and house for a family holiday.”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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.

“Fantastic family house”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

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.
