“The Hideaway”

Reviewed 6 May 2018

Our 7th visit to Ocean Blue coastal retreats, our 5th to The Hideaway so that says it all really! Such a beautiful little retreat in an idyllic setting, we love it here!

“Wonderfully tranquil and comfortable piece of beach front heaven.”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2017

Bonchurch is a delightful little coastal village of Victorian origin that has it's own charm with a quiet beach, two charming churches, ornamental pond and delightful Italian style pub/ restaurant. The Hideaway, is located within private grounds and in a perfect position from which to observe the many ships and boats that pass along the wonderful coastline. The little cove known as Monks Bay is only two minutes away down a coastal path and it is also only a twenty minute walk along the promenade to Ventnor itself. The Hideaway, is a very clean and comfortable cottage with a delightful and private raised sun terrace. We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome that made us, instantly, feel at home. We had a lovely time and we will return.

“Excellent facilities, in a unique setting”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2017

The facilities were excellent and the accommodation very close to the sea. There were two very good restaurants close by which had been recommended by the owner.

“Absolute paradise”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2016

This was our third time staying at the hideaway, will be back again next year. Such a beautiful, peaceful place can't fault it.

“The stay is worth repeating”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

We had a cozy stay in this little cottage. As a couple very good. Bedroom was a bit cold, due to the gale blowing at night with freezing temperaturers and snow. We adviced the owners to make a second door outside to hang temporarily when there are freezing conditions or a small porch. In other conditions fine. The bathroom is big enough and cozy. The livingroom upstairs with kitchen incorporated was also very cozy and everything was there to use. The footpath to the beach below was bit muddy, but the weatherconditions were very abnormal. No problem in other season, we're sure. We'll come back !!

Response from the owner Thank you for the suggestions. We have now insulated the window surrounds in the bedroom and hung a heavy curtain over the door. We have had a long spell of unusually cold easterly winds this year but with the extra insulation, woodburner, central and underfloor heating, the Hideaway will now be toasty year round.

“Peacfull idylic accomodation but near enough to civilisation.”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2013

The cottage is charming, quaint and beautifully presented. Perfect hideaway for a couple. Just the right size for two (although there is the option of the sofa bed in the lounge if it's needed) Well behaved pets are allowed so our Jack Russel was very happy to come on holiday as well. Have stayed here three times it has always been clean and well equiped. The woodburner is a welcome addition to the central heating, very welcome in febuary! Nice comfortable sofa and bed with a big feather duvet. An excellent walk in shower with plenty of hot water and a heated floor when you get out. The upper garden and decking has a couple of wooden sun loungers also a table and chairs, from which you can sit and watch the sea whilst enjoying the peace and quiet. The hideaway is located down a quiet lane, well away from any passing traffic. The beach is no more than 2 minutes walk away just down the path. The Bonchurch inn is a 5 to 10 minute walk up the lane and is the perfect place to eat and drink. Beer from barrel and very good italian food. Ventnor is a pleasant 1/2 hour walk along the seafront with its good mix of cafe's and bars. The perfect location really. Owners Lucy and Sean have always made us welcome. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.
