“A lovely place for a family holiday”
Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

Smugglers is a lovely house and ideally placed for the High Street in Ventnor and the beach. We managed to make use of all the facilities except the barbecue and everything worked very well. The owners promptly sorted out the only mishap despite the fact that it was bank holiday Monday. I would wholeheartedly recommend Smugglers as ideal for a family holiday.

“Ideal base from Ventnor ”
Reviewed 16 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We went in the February half-term. Although many of the local attractions were closed, Ventnor is a good area to drive around the Isle of Wight. The cottage is jyst 2 minutes walk to the high street and 5-10 minutes from the beach.
We could find off-street parking a few minutes walk away.
One indoor toilet (the outdoor one was too cold for this time of year) was ok for our group size of four adults and two toddlers. We have feedback that the power shower thermostat should be looked at (shifted from freezing to scalding).
Rooms divide nicely for two family groups as the second bedrooms are accessed through the main bedrooms.

“Charming cottage in a good location”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The house is quirky and in a good location, just off the high street and not far from the sea front. The house is equipped with all you need. The owners are well organised and it is a a quiet street. We were a couple with small child and the house was well equipped for a little one. Also good to have a gas hob with an electric oven, my husband who is the cook was very pleased with that! The house was very clean when we arrived.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Great location, suberb cottage!”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Great amount of space for our party of 4 adults and 3 children and very well equipped with absolutely everything we could have wanted: Board Games, DVD's and everything in the kitchen for when we did cook. This is a great central location in the centre of Ventnor and only 10 mins walk to the beach. Albeit down a steep hill. Ventnor itself has an impressive range of places to eat, all within walking distance of Smugglers. The beach is great for the family; We spent most of our week there as the weather was so good.
