The house lies between the village greens of St Helens and the harbour; is about a 5 minute walk from both and the beach is about a 5 minute walk from the harbour.
St Helens is the second most easterly coastal village on the Island and sandy beaches run round the coast from Shanklin to Ryde, the nearest town to the house. Ryde is also the foot passenger terminal from Portsmouth, a 20 minute crossing and the nearest car ferry terminal, Fishboure, is a 20 minute drive away.
If the calendar says that the house is not available, please check with me because it may mean that it is just me there & two rooms would be available.
The house is a new build in the New England style. It has gardens at the front and the back and one or other has the sun until the early evening. Both have lawns; the back is secluded and is accessed by French windows from the kitchen, which leads into a small patio with table, chairs, sunshade for outdoor eating and has a latched gate that smaller children cannot undo. The front garden also has parking for 3 cars, or 1 car and a boat, provided it is not the size of the Titanic!
There are 3 bedrooms, one with a king sized bed, one with twin beds and one a single. There is a bathroom upstairs with a WC, bath, shower attachment and wash basin and another downstairs, with a wash basin, WC and shower. There is also an outside shower for muddy/sandy dogs/children/swimmers/kite surfers. The kitchen is fully fitted including a washing machine and dishwasher and the house has central heating and a thermastatic contol, so can be set as hot or as cold as you like and can be pre-programmed. The downstairs is open plan (apart from the bathroom, obviously) with a kitchen/dinner leading into the sitting room, which has all the usual culprits, TV (1000s of channels) & WiFi.
The house is set back from the road linking St Helens to the next nearest village, Bembridge and has bus stops a couple of minutes walk away towards Bembridge, Sandown, Shanklin & Ventor in one direction & Ryde in the other. The local beach is called the Duver and is reached from the harbour via a raised footpath called the Causeway. The beach is sandy and safe, but I never took my eyes off my children when they were in the sea. There is a beach shop and cafe/restaurant on the beach and also public toilets, but at the other end of the Duver from the bit nearest the house, which is less peopled than the other end because the access is not as well known.
Station Road is 100% residential, but there are two small village shops for essentials (one is also a post office) within walking distance, up on the Village Green (Upper Green Road) & there is also a cafe, two restaurants, a pub, a book shop & a garage, for repairs not petrol. There is also a health center and more public toilets on the Green, plus cricket nets & a playground. Cricket & football are played on the Green and also the annual sports (for all ages), the annual fayre and a weekly car boot sale is held on the other green. If that makes you feel tired, give the sportsmen your full moral support from the pub overlooking the the Green & it's downhill all the way home.
The sea used to go all the way to Brading & St Helens was a thriving port, but when the railway was built across to Bembridge, this resulted in the demise of the port, the birth of Bembridge harbour and some stunning marshlands and unique wildlife between the embankment and Brading. Lots of geese too, that's St Helen's emblem.

Please do not park on the grass at the front, & use the outside shower/hose to get rid of mud & sand from boots/dogs/wetsuits etc sand just gets everywhere. We dry our wet suits etc in the back garden on the fences & have never had anything stolen.
Please do not use outdoor shoes in the house and if your pets have claws that will stratch the oak kitchen floor then I am afraid that they will have to stay in the back garden & sleep in the car.
The foul water drains have been cleverly designed to be on the uphill side of the house. Yes, whoever thought of that should be honoured in some very special way, so the downstairs WC, not having the assistance of gravity is a Saniflow. Its motor will jam if non biodegradeables are put in the WC, that includes nappywipes, so please use the bins provided.
I have some nice glassware & crockery, all family stuff with sentimental value, so please tell me if you think that it may be at risk and I will put it out of the way & replace it with things that I will not cry about of they are broken.
I also need you to respect the age of some the furniture. I would like you to enjoy the house, have fun, but please no burns or stains on the furniture or carpets. In the gardens you can party till you drop & smoke if that is your thing. The kitchen table is indestructible, the floor mops a storm, but not so the carpets & other wooden surfaces. The Island is a magnet for the Fest, the Ventor Fringe et al & I do know what a blast they all are, but my family I and I are at the age and the stage when we appreciate some civility in our lives. I no longer have to guage their age by the height by the finger marks on the walls. I have been there, trust me and I have no desire to re-live the experience in this house!
Please note that the cleaning fee covers the cost of a black bin liner's worth of laundry and 2 hours of cleaning/tidying. Please put the linen you have used in a black bin liner, so that we don't have to guess what has/has not been used. The guest information list tells to the procedure of you need more linen laundered or additional cleaning done.

Feel free to use whatever is in the house; it is no fun to arrive tired & then have to rush off to Tesco, but please replace what you use up, so that I or the next guest to not flop into the house & find no loo paper!

We loved our stay in Jo's home! It was very spacious and clean and the layout was great. The location was perfect -- easy to get everywhere we wanted to go. Perfect place to stay on Isle of Wight! Would definitely stay there again!

Jo runs a very efficient place to stay and everything is laid out very well. The house was extremely clean, everything worked, and was absolutely fit for purpose. The location was perfect for either beach goings or enjoying some of the other IOW attractions.

Our family had a really nice stay in Jo's house and we were lucky enough to meet her beforehand. St Helens is a nice quiet part of the Isle of Wight, so if you have energetic kids who want to be be doing stuff, you might need to think of another area such as Shanklin. However, with a car, the house is a great base for exploring. The house was clean and tidy and had all the things we needed. My fellow guests suggested that the two single beds were a bit rickety and saggy and needed updating a bit. All in all though, we were happy with the house and it made for a great holiday.

Lovely house. Perfect to explore the island. Its near a quiet beach and lovely little village. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Jo is very organised and any queries she was easy to contact. We had a great time inspite of the English weather!

A lovely home and garden in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay. Communication and information about the area from Jo was very good indeed.

I am from the Isle of Wight. I love the sea; swinmming, diving, hearing it; gardening and cooking. Brief I know, but as the whole house is being let, we will only pass as ships in the night!
