Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The housekeeper Kath Is a treasure. Dec 2012.
  2. Very well maintained and beautiful house. Oct 2012.
  3. Stunning! This is the most beautiful and well equipped holiday home that we have ever stayed at. Home is the best word to describe it, as it has absolutely everything you could possibly need for a holiday. It seems absolutely enormous, we were all surprised when we walked in. We were amazed that someone would let out such a gorgeous house with everything included. It had televisions everywhere, a Wii for the children and they even had a landline telephone that you could use (I have never had that before!) We have stayed in ten different houses over ten years and this is definitely the best yet.Ventnor is a lovely seafront, there is not much to do except the beach, but the water is very clear and quite warm. There is lots to do on the island and nothing takes longer than half an hour to get to. We would recommend this house to everyone (and already have since we got home). The owners also left us muffins, a bottle of bubbly and chocolates as a welcome, these were a lovely surprise. We would all love to go back again. July 2012.
  4. I thought that Candlelight Cottage looked nice on the web site but the pictures do it little justice. It is a fantastic house. The rooms are massive and it is extremely well equipped. The owners have thought of absolutely everything. May 2012.
  5. We stay in lots of cottages in different locations but this one is by far the best we have ever stayed in. Seeing is believing!! I cannot recommend it enough. We have stayed there twice now and will be going back next year on our yearly visit to friends in Ventnor. April 2012.
  6. Wonderful Victorian era property, with high ceilings and good sized rooms. Great location, only 10 minutes walk from the nearest cove. Lovely welcome treats provided, and excellent range of in-house entertainments provided for rainy days: books, games, Wii and a telly in every room! April 2012.
  7. Absolutely fantastic house to stay in. Everything you could possibly need was made available. Would definitely recommend. April 2012.
  8. This house is definitely the best we have ever stayed in . It is beautifully furnished throughout and everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday is provided. The size of this wonderful Victorian house make the modern house look like garages, it is so spacious and roomy. On arrival, there is tea, coffee, milk,Thortons chocolates , fresh muffins , M&S bubbly in silver ice bucket and even the dogs had two Bonios. The only downside to the holiday was that my wife was ill for several days but the house cannot be faulted. Would definitely visit again, worth paying that bit extra for this particular property. Feb 2012.
  9. The most wonderful house any of us has ever stayed in. Every little thing had been thought of! Just wonderful!! Dec 2011.
  10. Candlelight is a beautiful comfortable house. It had everything we needed and was very well presented. It is right opposite the park leading to the coastal path so for us with two dogs was perfect. Using an the walks on the island are lovely with plenty of ’dog friendly ’ pubs along the way. Oct 2011.
  11. The house is outstanding, by far the best we have stayed in over the 20 or so years we have been using your company. The amount of thought that has gone into the comfort and interesting pastimes e.g. books and games provided is exceptional. The location is close to the coastal path, park, botanical gardens, town and the beach. Steephill Cove is interesting and is within walking distance, but be prepared for a steep descent and challenging climb back. The Old Battery at the Needles is well worth a visit. Sept 2011.
  12. Very well appointed and equipped house with lots of games etc for adults and children. Aug 2011.
  13. Fantastic character property filled with antiques and curios. We were greeted with flowers in every room, cakes, chocolates and tea/coffee making supplies! This house is like home from home with plenty of books, videos, wii and even a laptop! Brilliant for families or couples and dogs are made welcome too. Sept 2011.
  14. This property is so spacious and well equipped. Three generations easily fitted into the house. We looked forward to going back there after a day out to sit on the veranda and catch the last rays of the sun. July 2011.
  15. Excellent, excellent, excellent. Expectations exceeded, flowers. cakes and chocolates greeted us on arrival. A beautiful house masquerading as a cottage in the literature. The house contained all that any family could hope for and more. The house was an experience and a delight. May 2011.
  16. The most beautiful house I have ever stayed in with everything you could wish for from babys to elderly alike. Bedroom’s wonderful and cosy, with extra bedding if needed. Great for the winter as the heating is so good. Wii and notebook for use and hundreds of books, games and dvd’s to entertain us on cold nights. Long walks in the park which leads to the sea.what more could you wish for. Feb 2011.
  17. A very nice and clean house, fresh flowers all around, fruits, cakes and tea made a nice welcome. Jan 2011.
  18. The property is spacious, ample room for the six of us, particularly the large sitting room where we spent several evenings. The property is immaculate. It is also convenient for the town centre. It had everything we needed. Oct 2010.
  19. The owners of this property were clearly concerned most in pleasing their guests. So much thought and care was put into the needs of guests. We have stayed in some very up-market hotels in the past and can honestly say that this accommodation was top class in every way. For example, every room had fresh flowers - the fresh flowers even blended in with the deco! Excellent furnishing, quality linen on very comfortable beds. A lovely touch was the cake stand with cup cakes on arrival! Just totally top class in every aspect! Sept 2010.
  20. Fine old house, built in1866. In beautiful condition. Lovely furnishings, prints and decor. Opposite town park and short walk to the sea and Ventnor seafront. All mod cons including DVD, flat screen TV and computer. One of the few rented houses that have been a great feature of our holidays. Sept 2010.
