A self contained 1 bedroom apartment situated on the first floor of a small block in a quiet location in Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight. Great walks with beautiful scenery are literally on the doorstep and the bay itself is just a few minutes walk away. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers looking for a peaceful place to stay. If you are an early riser you can take in the glorious sunrises over the bay from the balcony.

The space

The flat has an open plan lounge with a kitchen area. It is equipped with oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge and cupboards which house all the basics you are likely to need for cooking etc. The bathroom has a bath with shower attachment. The separate bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe. There is a balcony with table and chairs.

Guest access

Guests have private use of the whole flat and a private balcony. Although this is my home, I will not be staying here when guests are in occupation and so they will be free to enjoy their own space in privacy.

Interaction with guests

Most of the time I will be on the island and will provide a telephone number where I can be reached.

Other things to note

Although there is a well stocked local shop just a few minutes walk away, the nearest supermarket (Co-op) is approximately a mile away in Afton Road on the outskirts of the small town of Freshwater so please bear this in mind if you do not have your own transport.
Bayclose Court is a small block of flats and guests are requested to respect the privacy and peace of neighbours.

Highly recommended. This is situated 5 minutes walk from the lovely Freshwater Beach with perfect access for the stunning walk over to the Needles. The flat is very comfortable, clean and spacious with everything we needed including kitchen equipment and maps and local information and brochures. You can see the sea from the balcony and it is very quiet. Martin also has some amazing framed photographs he has taken of the area. We hope to be back again!

My fiancé and I stayed here for a week In August and it was perfect for us. The flat is tucked away in the quiet of Freshwater Bay but is still within close driving distance of a number of beautiful beaches. Martin was a great host and the info he left us on the area was really useful. Would highly recommend!

Response from Martin:
Hi Christine Thanks for the feedback. I must say I was disappointed with my first non 5 star review but I hope that I can treat this as a learning exercise. I'm sorry that you found Freshwater Bay a bit too quiet. It must have been quite a contrast after arriving straight from London! But I suppose the tranquility is one of the things I really love about the place. I was bewildered to learn that that you couldn't contact me. I can't understand how your texts did not get to me as I have had no problems receiving them previously from other guests. Also, I have only just seen the email that Jade sent me. For some reason this ended up in my 'junk' email file and as I would not have recognised her name I would not have opened it. Anyway, I can only apologise and I'm glad that you managed to work out the washing machine anyway. I take on board your comment about the supermarket being a bit of a walk. I shall mention it on the listing as not all guests will have their own transport. Thank you for staying - and for leaving my flat clean and tidy. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in the UK. Kind regards, Martin
