Thank you to all my wonderful guests who have stayed. I look forward to welcoming new and returning guests to Sea Shells by the Beach.
Very exciting news has been that following my first inspection and grading by Visit England, the cottage received a 5 star GOLD grading!!!!
What an amazing place- we have had so much fun and laughter and exercise during our stay at this amazing, beautiful place. We shall be back! Jo,Janice, Vicki, Rita, Alex, Shazza and Caroline.
First class holiday with first class service from a first class hostess! Attention to detail is the watchword at "Sea Shells by the Beach". From the pre-holiday information pack to the notes around the house,nothing is left to chance,including being fully covid compliant! Annabelle thank you for ensuring that we had a brilliant holiday.We'll be back!
What a wonderful week we have had at "Seashells". Not only have we been blessed with glorious autumnal weather all week long but this gorgeous,tranquil,delightful place has exceeded all our expectations. Annabelle's artistic flair and attention to detail is second to none. This place is really special. Five stars are not enough! Thank you for your warmth and hospitality and for looking after us so well. We've enjoyed a really memorable time here and just seen a school of dolphins swim past-the icing on the cake!
Annabelle,Thank you so much for everything! Absolutely wonderful as always. All the thoughtful little touches and your kindness, nothing is ever too much trouble. It has been such a difficult time and we were nervous about going anywhere but we knew that we would feel safe here- everything was absolutely spotless and PERFECT! This is now our fourth visit and we will be back. Annabelle you are a star and practically perfect in every way! Patricia, Mike, Shakira, Amber,Alaska and Chilly Thank you woofs!! xxx
Dear Annabelle,this beautiful place is a wonder. Rob and Derek had told us so much about their previous stays but nothing could actually compare to being here and experiencing it for ourselves,the attention to detail, the cleanliness,the view are outstanding,the only let down was the weather but even that couldn't spoil our enjoyment of our surroundings,so much so, we hope to be back very soon. Thank you for providing everything we could need and more.
Another beautiful holiday here in Bonchurch -thank you Annabelle. Sea Shells is indeed a special place and we have loved every minute of being here-especially with such amazing weather! Our fourth visit but definitely not our last! Thank you so much for the cakes,,chocolates, wine and flowers -really felt spoilt!
Heatwaves and thunderstorms but nothing disturbs the idyllic serenity of SSBTB. Many thanks as always to Annabelle for creating and allowing us to share this haven of tranquility.
We have enjoyed a fantastic week here. Annabelle has been absolutely brilliant accommodating our son and his wife when their weekend hotel booking was cancelled at the last minute. The house had everything we could possibly need and was spotlessly clean. We would never tire of this wonderful view and a child free holiday would probably see us not leaving the house! We did have great fun at Black Gang Chine and Robin Hill (especially the toboggan run) The Needles were great too (especially the yellow boat ride and the fireworks) EATING OUT: The Spy glass Inn was fantastic-no booking but did not wait long and the food was fantastic. The Wheatsheaf Inn, Yarmouth, beautiful pub,fabulous food and service.
Well what can I say,yet another stay at Seashells.Your standards are amazing.We couldn't ask for anymore. We have had the most amazing holiday!! as always!! I don't think we could ever beat these views,when we are sat relaxing you just want to stay forever. Annabelle you have been an amazing host-nothing is ever too much trouble! We have felt very safe here during our stay (covid-19) Thank you from all of us and see you next year XX
We all have had a lovely stay at Sea Shells by the Beach. The views are fantastic and it is well located for local walks and traveling and visiting the Island. The accommodation is clean and tidy with cosy beds and equipped with everything you need. The weather has been kind to us and we've had a fantastic week!
A perfect spot to be, everything to hand and what an eye for detail that Annabelle has. The flowers were lovely and absolutely everything that we could need. We will return again and will tell everything to everyone we know , what a fab time we had. Eddie had a lovely time as well.
We have had an absolutely idyllic week in this magical place. We had plans to explore the island but the cottage was so lovely we hardly wanted to stray beyond Ventnor beach and Sybil loved hunting for crabs on Monk's Bay. Annabelle was a wonderful host and we feel incredibly lucky to have ended our summer holiday here-thank you so much! Emily B
The most beautiful house with such a wonderful view of the sea. Super clean and really well equipped with everything we needed and delightful extras, fresh roses,charming battery candle for gentle bedroom light and lots of pretty little lights inside and out. The beds are so comfy and good pillows too. Thank you so much . Richard, Maha, Zareena, Amaya,Otis and Mark and Liz
Loved the magical entrance to the house and it just kept unfolding! What a beautiful place. Amazing view out to sea which just allowed us to all relax. We will miss it as we all go back to our busy working schedules. You have thought of everything and we have no suggestions for improvement. Thank you for a wonderful week
Another wonderful stay at Seashells. The weather was very mixed but watching the stormy sea from the comfort of the daybeds was no issue! Great visits to The Botanical Gardens, a family surf lesson at Compton and a wonderful lunch at The George in Yarmouth. Shanti loved her walks on the beach and the wifi kept the teenagers amused. Thanks to Annabelle for more holiday memories X
We loved it here it is so quiet and peaceful. We had everything we needed and it is very clean. All of us loved the location.We liked the sea view. The sofas are very comfy as well as all the beds. Thank you for the best time on the Isle of Wight . PS You have done a very good job of getting all of the equipment.Thanks Annabelle. Written by Sophie age 9
We have just had a fabulous stay at Seashells and couldn't imagine a more idyllic spot! We were very lucky with the weather and spent most of our time lounging around in deckchairs instead of exploring! We did visit Osborne House and the Botanic Gardens, both of which, although quite expensive to get in, were well worth it. It's time to go home now but we very much hope to be back again one day! Thank you Annabelle for providing such comfort! Bette,Kathleen,Gillian,Nick,Holly,Ben and Becky the pooch. PS.Bette says " I lived by the sea in E. Africa so this lovely view brought back such wonderful memories! Thank you Bette"
Absolutely wonderful accommodation. Main room is a delight with wonderful outdoor and changing scenery. Annabelle has provided anything anyone could possibly need and more. Thank you Kathy,Tim and family.
Annabelle thank you so much for your warm welcome and for having us back for our 8th visit! We absolutely love it here and will re book again soon. Thanks for the birthday cake for Grace and banners and balloons- all were a wonderful surprise! So pleased also the weather picked up and we got to enjoy the magic of Sea Shells at its best XXX Debs,Chris,Louise, Mr and Mrs Wright, Charlie, Rosie and Barney
Thank you for a lovely stay. The views are beautiful and a perfect location for dog walks too! Nothing was too much trouble either. Annabelle made us feel so welcome and the locals are very helpful and friendly too. Thanks again from the Websters XX
