Amazing home from home with excellent location
I've worked on the island over a few weeks and this has been my sanctuary, a real home from home. It's been lovely and warm through Jan/Feb and had everything in the house I could possibly need. The location is also excellent - the high street a few mins walk in one direction and the sea promenade 10 mins walk the other way, which is where I found myself most evenings going for a stroll after work. It's been a pleasure staying here. My colleagues & I will make a beeline for here every time we visit in future.

Lovely newly built house close to everything Shanklin has to offer.
Stayed with my partner and his two brothers on a weekend in Shanklin. Very close to pubs, restaurants and shops, and a short walk down to the seafront. Lovely new house that can sleep 4 with everything you could need in the kitchen along with comfortable bedding & towels. Great location to get about the Island with buses and the Train station close if not driving. Would recommend anytime of year as always something to do on the Isle of Wight, with autumn/winter giving a different atmosphere.

We really enjoyed the week spent at Driftwood. The garden was well laid out and ideal for relaxing, and the furnishings, cutlery and all utensils were readily available. The bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and very quiet at night. A superb holiday property, we will rebook!
