Isle of Wight Holiday Home

We purchased a holiday home during March 2014 to expand the services Rebecca Homes Ltd offers. The holiday home is for people we support to enjoy holidays. We also let the home to the public, staff and other associates of the company for holidays.

We hope that many people have enjoyable holidays there. Town centre location with sea views and a ten minute walk from the beach. Ventnor is on the beautiful Southern Coast of the Isle of Wight, which has the warmest climate in the UK.

There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor with a separate toilet. The master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom contains a double bed. The ground floor bedroom contains a super king bed. The lounge on the first floor has a double pull out sofa bed. This room has a TV, with freeview box. The kitchen and dining room are in the basement accessed via stairs.

The basement and ground floor has access directly into the street. This is because the street slopes down to the back of the house. Therefore on two floor levels in the house there is access direct onto the street. This is very helpful for ease of access and health and safety reasons. Maximum the house sleeps is nine people.

There is a shower and toilet in the basement.

There is an antique pair of binoculars at the house, they are old but are great to use, they are located in the lounge.

The house can be rented on its own as a holiday home rental or alternatively upon assessment Rebecca Homes staff can take individuals on holiday if they need support and there are no carers or family available to do this. A price list will be published soon for holiday lettings only. If you need staff to also go then a price would be discussed on assessment.

Ventnor is a Victorian seaside town situated on the southern side of the Isle of Wight, right in the heart of the famed Undercliff, much of which is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Sheltered from the north by the national trust owned St Boniface Downs, Ventnor benefits from its own micro climate. This climate provides an ideal haven for a variety of flora and fauna, many species of which are only found in Mediterranean countries.

Ventnor town’s crest bears the figure of Hygeia, the goddess of health, who serves to remind us that, since Victorian times, many visitors have benefited from the revitalizing and restorative properties that this micro climate offers.

Visitors to Ventnor will find a great variety of established local shops, restaurants, public houses and holiday accommodation. All provide a friendly service both to their local community and its visitors. Many serve local freshly caught fish and locally brewed ales. The town is currently undergoing a revival with exciting developments including its harbour and off-shore deep sea moorings and a range of new accommodation, restaurants and retail outlets.

“The prettiest place I have ever saw in my life, at home or abroad” – Charles Dickens
