Located in a quiet cul-de-sac on the leafy outskirts of Shanklin, I offer two double bedrooms, one with shower en-suite, & a smaller, contemporary, south facing double overlooking a pretty rear garden, patio and deck. I can supply a discount car voucher for Red Funnel Ferries from Southampton to East Cowes once you have booked your accommodation. Foot travellers should use WightLink FastCat from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head, then catch the train to Shanklin then a short taxi ride.
CHADIOT is a modern 4 bedroom house, built in 2000. Bedrooms are located on the first floor, so this accommodation is NOT suitable for those with mobility problems (sorry!).
Recently awarded a Travel Ambassador GREEN STAR for promoting sustainable travel on the Isle of Wight; I can email you details of how to get to Shanklin using sustainable transport and local itineraries.
Malcy along with Gucci & Tilly (my resident cats), welcome you to share our modern, comfortable and well appointed home.
There is room for 4 people in 2 double bedrooms, both with SKY TV, SKY Sports, WiFi. the smaller double has the exclusive use of the master bathroom with bath & shower which is right next door to your bedroom, so, although it is not ensuite, it is for the sole use of my guests. The larger double room en-suite with en-suite shower is tastefully decorated and furnished.
NETFLIX and Amazon Prime are also available on my UHD TV in the comfortable ground floor lounge if you fancy a night in.
Apart from occasional visits from my grown up children and grandchildren my home is usually very quiet.
