We’ve made the big decision to stop charging booking fees for all new bookings – saving you £35 on your stay!
With the growing trend of charging without a booking fee across the holiday let industry and the fee now being used by the big agencies only, we’ve decided that, as a small, local business, we feel that it doesn’t fit in anymore and much better used for ice creams on the island!
Don’t forget – 2020 availability is now open and filling up fast, so get booking your stay now to avoid missing your chosen week.
These lucky sheep have a good view! If you’d like to enjoy it, Highlands and The Priory are just down the road and allow you to see right across Sandown Bay.
With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve got the presents covered with our gift vouchers.
Available for a value of your choice, you can give that special someone the first step on their way to an island escape with a gift voucher for a stay with Shanklin Holiday Homes.
The vouchers allow purchase via the website and phone, making it easy to redeem.

Here are a selection of photos from the coastal path through Luccombe to Ventnor. A perfect walk alongside countryside, National Trust land and coastal views.
As the year moves on, we are are already looking to 2019 with our first guests booked and 2019 availability open for all. Prices have been held at 2018 rates, so get booking to secure your 2019 holiday.
However, back to this year, with the summer sun now upon us and the thoughts of a sunny summer holiday on the Isle of Wight in the air, there are just a handful of weeks left across our apartments for June, July and August of 2018.
Check out our availability to nab a week away before they go – 2018 has been a hugely popular year, so the Isle of Wight is the place to be.
Don’t forget we can offer a discount for Red Funnel and also have travel cots with linen and high chairs available to our guests free of charge.
For 2018 and 2019 availability, visit our booking page.
If you are looking for a pitstop on your walk to Ventnor, why not pop into Dunnose Magna in Luccombe?
Historically a tea gardens, it is a return to old with a new tea gardens now opened in the gardens of the thatched house. Open 11am to 5pm (not Wednesdays), it offers Purbeck ice cream, homemade cakes, light lunches and a selection of hot, cold and alcoholic beverages, all nestled in the Luccombe valley.
In addition to this, you can also see one of the streams that feed Luccombe Chine, currently closed due to landslips, and also the family of chickens that liven just next door.

Just around the corner from Ventnor is a hidden gem, waiting to be explored – Steephill Cove.
The tiny fishing village is a short walk away from both Ventnor esplanade and the Botanic Gardens along the coastal path. With no cars in the village (parking is available further inland) and the paths simply covered in the shingle from the beach, when arriving in the village, you’ll feel like your stepping back in time.
Away from modern life, the huts and houses form a perfect setting for a relaxing day out. It’s a no fuss kind of place, with a few restaurants and cafes, some of which feature fresh fish caught by the fisherman of the cove, and of course, the beach.
And that’s it. But with the view, who needs any more?
Spring has most definitely sprung up at The Priory in Shanklin, as shown in this picture from earlier today.
The daffodils are out across the garden and everything is looking lovely and green in the sunny weather.
