4 The Bayhouse

2 bedrooms
2 bathrooms
5 guests


A recently newly built apartment, The Bayhouse is positioned on the periphery of the south-east coast of the island, in the popular village of Shanklin. With access down to the sandy beach only a few meters away, this pared back, modern apartment makes an ideal base for a family or small groups wanting to holiday together. The open plan living area on the first floor has sliding doors, with direct access on to a balcony. Having spent the day on the beach or exploring the island, why not sit in the evening sun and unwind with a glass of something cold, with the sea sparkling in the distance, or utilise the table and chairs for simple al fresco dining. Inside the well-equipped kitchen is adjacent to a six-seater dining table, allowing guests to watch the nominated chef in action! Whilst the remaining space accommodates an L shaped sofa, perfectly positioned to recline and switch on the wall mounted Smart TV.

There are two ground floor bedrooms; both with ensuites and double beds, which are made up with white cotton bedding and dressed with vibrant cushions to give a pop of colour. There is ample room to comfortably unpack, for even the messiest of travellers! The angled, wooden terrace, accessed from both bedrooms, provides privacy for either a morning coffee or a sheltered spot to turn the pages of a favourite book.

The seaside town of Shanklin is well served by public transport around the island with regular buses and the railway ‘Island Line’ to Ryde and Sandown. The main town is only a 15 minute walk and offers a multitude of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants to entertain all ages and tastes. During the summer months the seafront is bustling with people gathering at one of the many restaurants or choosing a favoured spot for swimming and sunbathing along the long, golden beach. There is a lot of fun to be had for all the family with a variety of traditional seaside amusements, including crazy golf, arcades and ice cream stalls. If you like exploring, then Shanklin Chine is a must; with its natural beauty surrounded by waterfalls, streams and rare plants. The entrance is situated within Shanklin Old Village amongst popular local restaurants, pubs and thatched cottages.

Over half this beautiful island is protected as an Area of Outstanding Nature Beauty, so why not take a day to explore some of the stunning scenery by taking a drive along the Military Road. Travel west from Shanklin, through Ventnor, a coastal town that clings to the cliff side and is famously the preferred holiday destination for aspiring Victorians; perhaps stopping on route to get lost in the peaceful Ventnor Botanic Gardens. The final destination being Freshwater Bay, with its sparkly, clear water and breath-taking views and cliff top walks. Park in the Bay and walk up to Tennysons monument. To really blow the cobwebs out, continue to the most western point of the island and the landmark Needles. The birds eye view is worth the hike and refreshments are on hand at the Old Battery, which was the Victorian coastal defence and secret rocket testing site, perched above The Needles. Dropping down the other side of the Tennyson down, Alum Bay comes into view. The twenty-one different coloured sands create a distinctive backdrop for the shingle beach. For those with a head for heights, take the chairlift up and down to the beach, to see The Needles from a difference perspective.

Out of the many other island attractions, why not follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria and visit her favourite summer residence. Osborne House and gardens was designed in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo by the Queen’s beloved husband Prince Albert. In contrast, a day spent at Blackgang Chine will ensure you a rather different Victorian experience; having opened in 1843, it remains the oldest themed attraction in the UK.

A super well equipped apartment with stylish furnishing and a sea view balcony. This was an apartment so we catered for ourselves but the kitchen facilities were excellent. Loved sitting out on the balcony and the beds were super comfy. Great en suite shower and bath.
