    What a view!! Comfortable & well equipped. Slight markdown for lack of dishwasher. Excellent welcome pack. Parking is a bit tight, but not a problem.

    Very comfortable seating, beds as comfortable as our own. Great to have Internet connected television. Very clean warm house. I cannot find a thing to complain about. Local to some good pubs. Ideal for starting walks straight from the house.

    Great location with lovely sea views. Very cosy and warm in February (despite gales and rain outside on some days). Good enclosed small garden suited the dogs. Ventnor a good base at this time of the year.

    Dicks Retreat was a lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need and the views of the sea were exceptional. We had a fantastic stay here.

    Lovely house in a beautiful setting and parking was a bonus. Unfortunately we couldn't get the TV working but that wasn't really an issue. Definitely from home to home and would recommend to families.

    An excellent base for touring the island. The highlight of our week was watching dolphins from the bedroom window of Dick's Retreat. Ventnor, Shanklin & Sandown beaches were perfect. Excellent meal at The Spyglass Inn on Ventnor seafront.

    The house is very well situated, tucked away from the main road. It has stunning views out to sea from the back of the house. There is a small enclosed garden which is very safe for children and dogs. The house is modern, clean and well equipped. The kitchen has everything one would need even to cook a Sunday roast. The welcome pack is generous and was much appreciated. Ventnor is very pleasant and the house isn't far from the centre of town. The only drawback is that Ventnor is extremely hilly which of course is why it has such good views over the sea and coastal edges. We enjoyed our stay on the Isle of Wight, everywhere is in easy reach of Ventnor so we were able to visit all the places on our hit list really easily

    What a fabulous cottage to spend our week in. Really couldn't have asked for anything more comfortable and homely. It had everything to make us feel very comfortable and welcome....from a bottle of Prosecco cooling in the fridge to a small bowl of treats for our dog. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for somewhere with superb sea views, a 10 minute walk to some great seafront pubs & eateries and somewhere to happily spend time just relaxing.
