6 Large Bedrooms, Stunning Views, Luxurious Glamour Of A Bygone Age
Marine Villa, The Art Deco House offers luxury self catering family holiday accommodation for 14+ people.
A wonderful original Art-Deco House overlooking Sandown Bay on the Isle of Wight which is probably one of the most spectacular self-catering properties in the whole of Southern England.
Offering amazing sea views (and sunrises) over Sandown Bay towards Culver Cliff, this magnificent villa was built in 1929 and takes full advantage of the cliff-top location, and is probably one of the Isle of Wight’s premium properties.
This grand detached house has decadently proportioned rooms: all main living and bedrooms have large windows topped by stained glass detail, framing the vistas. Art Deco influences include an upstairs sun room with huge sliding picture windows to enjoy the breathtaking sunrises by day and bay illuminations by night. Huge stained glass windows bring out the oak-panelled hallway, magnificent staircase and galleried landing.
Sleeping 14 adults comfortably (plus up to 5 extra guests in bunk beds or sharing rooms- best suited for children/teenagers) across 6 bedrooms (plus the 'Morning Room' which has 2 additional single day-beds), with a magnificent Art-Deco lounge (seating 18 comfortably) and a 20 seater dining table, this house is perfectly suited to a multi-generational family get together (it has mobility access for wheelchair users) for a self catered holiday, where you can treat the magnificent house as your own, with total privacy for your extended family.
Just about all of the furniture has been rediscovered and is lovingly resurrected from the 1930's. From the walnut cocktail cabinet in the lounge (which apparently was used on the Elstree Studios set for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) to the stunning wardrobe and dressing table suite set in Bedroom 4, which were rescued from a house in East London, this house is simply Art-Deco at it's best.
Start your day in our house, by experiencing the most stunning and beautiful colours of sunrise, by leaving your seaward facing curtains open, even just a little so that you awake naturally. The sunrise photo shown here is a 100% genuine view from the window, taken on a mobile phone!
From the house, there are wonderful cliff top walks (or runs), you are right above the beach (actually it is a lot of steps to get down, perfect for walking off the dinner. If you have the excuse of a pushchair or use a wheelchair, then you may take the more leisurely slope down!) There are lots of cycle routes across the island. The whole of the Isle of Wight awaits you.
Included in the price are all linens (bedding and towels, except cot bedding), and free wifi.

At an additional price, a special dinner including an in-house chef and hostess/stewardess can be provided for the evening or freshly pre-prepared gourmet meals delivered which you simply heat up and serve. A special event cake can also be organised.
The property is fully licensed for alcohol and we can provide a list of carefully selected magnums of wine and some fine champagne (and not at silly prices). For those seriously into wine, we also have a private collection that we can draw some exceptional cases of wine for the discerning palate.
