Chine House Apartment

Could not fault the apartment,it was spotless and all the little extras just show they care and look after their customers.

Nothing was too much,all you had to do was ask. All the village shops,pubs and restaurants are on your doorstep,with the beach only a five minute walk away.couldn't ask for more really.

Fab apartment attached to the main house of the owners, however with its own garden and private side entrance you never know the owners are there.

Massive bed, great bathroom and a fully fitted kitchen with top quality fittings and equipment.... Shanklin is the best place on the island and you are right in the middle of the old village with great pubs and eating places all within staggering distance there..and back. The seafront is 5 minutes walk away and the pub on the beach is good with great views. Will definitely return, the owners are a great source of info too, and pleasant when you arrive. One very very small blip is the lack of WIFI, and 4G coverage around the island is a bit rubbish so WIFI would have helped...but im being petty...this place is well worth a visit for a couple.

We were greeted with a warm, friendly welcome.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could want, or need, for a weekend away; I highly recommend the apartment as the place to stay whilst on the Isle of Wight.

Look no further

This self contained spacious apartment really has everything you want; a very large & comfortable bed with good quality bed linen, small but functional kitchen with all mod cons, a large bathroom with big fluffy towels, nice hot shower, private entrance, good parking & it's own private small garden.

On arrival we found a nice bottle of Prosecco on ice, chocolates, fresh fruit, bread, milk, cereal, tea, coffee, jam, butter, eggs - what more could you ask for. The apt is in a great location, right on the doorstep of the old village & only a few minutes walk from the town & the beach. Debbie & Andrew made us feel very welcome & were extremely helpful with local knowledge. We will definitely stay again when we return to the IOW.

Great little hide away

We chose it because of the reviews, and they were all right, excellent.

Our host made contacvt with us before we got there to explain how to get in, when we arrived everything was as described the music playing added a lovely touch, enough food for a very generous breakfast of cereals and eggs. The Bed was very comfortable and large enough to get lost in. Situated close to some excellent resteraunts we had no problem eating out even in the winter season. Our hosts were excellent and available if you should need anything but I can't think what you might need

If you're looking for excellent value for money and s superb location, then Chine House Apartment is the place to book.

I echo all that previous reviewers have said. Debbie & Andrew were extremely friendly and very helpful. And although the apartment is essentially part of their home, with its separate front door & thick walls, you really don't feel like you're living next door to anyone. The apartment is spacious and extremely well equipped. I have a back disability and require a very firm mattress. Within a few minutes of me typing this on the booking form, Debbie was on the phone to see what they could do to help. In the end the mattress was extremely supportive and suited my needs perfectly. I was very impressed by Debbie's willingness to accomodate my needs. As others have mentioned, we found an extensive food package waiting for us when we arrived, including a bottle of wine. We arrived early evening and it was great to find fresh milk, butter, eggs, bread etc. More than enough for our first night. We had travelled on public transport from the mainland and used the island buses during our stay. The bus stop was just two minutes walk away and the island bus service is fantastic. We even travelled around the island on new years day. We spent new year eve in one of Shanklin's Old Village pubs, located a 2/3 minute walk away. Great live music and friendly atmosphere. This was my first trip to the island in 20+ years - having spent my school holidays in Shanklin as a child. Chine House really is in a prime location, perfect for the town, the beach, nearby Rylestone Gardens & Shanklin Chine; and for accessing both public transport, and the main road from Shanklin to other island locations, if using a car. Everything is matter of minutes away by walking. I could rave about both Shanklin and Chine House for hours, but instead I would urge you to book a few days and see for yourself. It really was home from home - all the little extras that Debbie had thought of, made a big difference. We needed to be there longer than the 5 days just to sample the wonderful range of "smellies" in the bathroom. I will definitely be staying there again. It is a real gem of a place and just shows what can be achieved with a bit of thought, care and attention. Thank you Debbie & family. We had a lovely time and appreciated all that you did to make it a first class stay.

Best on the IoW

Immaculately clean, charming, self-catering accommodation in the picture postcard area of Shanklin Old Village, very near the Chine and the beach.

Excellent welcoming pack and all the basics are provided by the very thoughtful owners. Ideal for a romantic week/weekend away.

Would definitely go again - thoroughly recommended!

Excellent accommodation at Chine House appartment

We were very happy with our accommodation.

There were lots of little finishing touches that made it extra special. It was in a good position right in the heart of the village but it was very quiet. The owner and her family were very welcoming and friendly and we would definitely.stay there again next time we visit the island.

Chine House

Everything about our experience was excellent.

The welcome pack was much appreciated. The apartment was spotless and equipped with much more than I would have expected. The local bus service is easy to access and a good way of getting around.I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and should I return I would stay there again. Debbie and her family are charming and very helpful

Lovely easy short break

The appartment is in a brilliant position being right by the shops and pubs of the old village and within easy walk to the beach and sea front.

The accomodation was larger than we were expecting and had everything you could need. The kitchen was fairly compact to cook any meals but having said that you are surrounded by places to eat and the information pack contains lots of information about local take-aways. The patio garden is a great bonus and we made lunch to sit outside in the sunshine.
