What an awesome holiday home this is... a true hidden gem! So beautiful and comfortable, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything anyone could ever wish for... clearly wonderful care and attention has been paid to every detail!
We have soaked up the fabulous and ever changing panoramic seaview from the wall-to-wall glazed doors of the lounge and garden beyond and how wonderful to have had the benefit of the sun in the garden all day too.Privacy and sunshine are a real feature as the view is so gorgeous too!
Loved using our binoculars to zoom in on all the passing ships, dolphins and Eric the sea lion! It felt so private being raised up from the esplanade - so wonderful in fact we were not motivated to venture far afield!
That said, we loved strolling the esplanade to Ventnor and enjoyed several more challenging walks along the coastal paths and steps. It’s absolutely worth walking a little beyond Ventnor to Steephill Cove - gorgeous but inaccessible by car.
We totally recommend Sea Shells by the Beach for a wonderfully luxurious and relaxing get away from it all. Thank you so much Annabelle for being such an amazing hostess - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay... and Largo absolutely loved his holiday!!! 💕🐶
Once again a lovely stay with everything just perfect-especially so in these odd times. Already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you ,Paul Irene and Molly xxx

Sea Shells by the Beach is our favourite place to be. We always go home feeling relaxed and refreshed. Annabelle is amazing and has thought of everything.We cannot wait to return.John,Janet,Sophie,Ray,and children
We have had such a wonderful stay.Thank you Annabelle!
The cottage has everything you could need and is lovely and clean.
It works really well with small children who have enjoyed playing in the big bright sociable space whilst we have enjoyed the ever changing views.
If you are reading this and have small children 1 to 5 ,here are the nearby attractions we liked:
The Donkey Sanctuary
Godshill Model Village
Blackgang Chine (expect playgrounds more than rides and go early in your stay so you can return for free within 7 days which means the price is more reasonable)
Jurrasic Jim's Shop (if you have a dino lover Jim is great with young enthusiasts)
This was our first visit to the Isle of Wight since 1968! The house has been a wonderful place-comfortable,well equipped and beautifully situated. Annabelle has been very welcoming and helpful. Despite some wet and windy weather we have enjoyed every day! Thank you Annabelle.
Seashells never fails to impress us.This place is just like coming home every time. The location,facilities and Annabelle's personal touch brings this cottage to another level.Thank you Annabelle for such a wonderful holiday and keeping us as safe as possible through these challenging times. See you very soon I hope. Robert,Derek,Joan and Ann XXXXX
Another wonderful stay at Sea Shells by the Beach. Beautiful weather all week. Had our usual "chill out" holiday watching the ever changing landscape from the amazing location.
Sea shells is by far the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in.Thank you Annabelle for making our stay so special-again! .We will be back again!
Once again thank you so much by the wonderful welcome we received as always. Mum and Derek’s sister were bowled over by the cottage and my Auntie & Uncle who were staying at Wheeler Bay Holiday Villas couldn’t get over the wonderful way the cottage has been designed and the superb views, they couldn’t stop talking about it. Fantastic efforts on your part in helping us stay safe with the current COVID19 situation, Seashells by the Beach is always spotless and of an extremely high standard, but with all the extra work you are doing and the sanitisation stations you have put in were extremely re-assuring and what we have come to expect of the high standards you set in your amazing holiday home. Really thought that was an extremely good idea of the new linen cupboard where all used linen, towels and mats etc can be taken prior to leaving. much better for the guests and I hope more helpful to you. Again a very big thank you and really hoping we can take advantage of that week you have available next year.
Take good care of yourself, stay safe and speak soon.
Love & best wishes
Fab 2 weeks holiday.First week spent with our son and girlfriend,second week on our own (bliss)
It was wonderful to be able to relax and watch the shipping sail past,cycle into Ventnor for a coffee or a meal.
Having visited the Island for several years we've visited numerous attractions this time.We took a fast boat tour of The Needles plus a stair lift down to the beach-fun!!!
Didn't know what to expect with our holiday due to COVID-19 but I must say we felt extremely safe.
Annabelle ,thank you for making our second trip to the cottage so welcoming.
Hope to see you in a year or so
Love Karen and Stephen
Seashells on the beach is a very special holiday home from home. Its location, levels of comfort, cleanliness and style are better than anything I have seen anywhere in the world. Annabelle is a wonderful host and anticipates her guests every need. We have stayed here three times now and have loved every minute.
Rachel and family
Another wonderful relaxing stay all thanks to you Annabelle. We felt safe and yet welcome even though we had to keep our distance ! We will see you again in September and I will email you dates for next March. Irene ,Paul and Molly
WOW! What an amazing week-huge thanks to Annabelle,host extraordinaire! You made our stay possible and extremely comfortable. The house is an absolute delight, what an amazing view-you could never get tired of it!
For future guests-we very much enjoyed visiting The Needles, Shanklin Chine, Ventnor Botanic Gardens and Carisbrook Castle-all also dog friendly.
We hope to be back in the future to this slice of Heaven!
Holly,Ben and Becky

Thank you for sharing this hidden gem! We've had a great week away relaxing,made much easier by your fantastic property. Spotlessly clean, every need catered for and you can bring your dog-a great plus home from home.
Trips to the Needles and Osbourne House ,you can take your dog,they're allowed everywhere bar the house and the beach. Off to the Light Show tonight
A lovely property in a great location, walks to Ventnor along the walkway are great.
I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay in this lovely cottage.All great walks were under 30 minutes away!!!
THANK YOU for this wonderful holiday - you couldn't have been a lovelier hostess.
We come to the Isle of Wight a lot and this is by far the BEST HOLIDAY HOME WE HAVE STAYED IN.
Thank you for all the thoughtful touches in the house (a warm hose for our beloved dog!) and for being so helpful when we broke the blinds and needed some bicarb!
I've never had a more perfect view for practising yoga and will carry the memory of it for a long time.
We're so grateful and hope to come back again soon.
Emma, Andrew ,Emma,William and Joy
