Starboard description

Holiday home
Starboard is a lovely ground floor, open plan studio apartment, which lies on the beach, just ten minutes from the town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Now one of seven apartments, in a converted boathouse, Starboard has been furnished to a good standard and has a welcoming living and sleeping area. Sleeping two, this cottage apartment has a light and airy living, dining and kitchen area, with a double bed, along with a shower room. Starboard also has a private slipway for launching your own boat, and the convenience of a licensed cafe next door. Yarmouth has a lovely harbour area, shops and inns, plus the coastal path is perfect for walkers and cyclists. Starboard is an ideal base for exploring Yarmouth.

The wonderful seaside town of Yarmouth is the oldest town on the Isle of Wight, and is home to a busy harbour, narrow streets, an array of shops and inns, and Henry VIII's castle. The coastal path is a haven for walkers and cyclists, plus walks can also be enjoyed across to the nearby Tennyson Down. The beaches of Colwell and Totland Bays provide great watersports facilities, which makes Yarmouth an ideal base.

The Isle of Wight, with its beaches, unspoiled scenery, rich heritage and over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths is a walker's paradise, or if sailing is your thing, the renowned annual Cowes Week is not to be missed.

In a perfect location, on the beach and next to a really friendly cafe that was open during the day. The apartment was thoughtfully furnished including a full length mirror, a shelf in the bathroom and shaver socket. The floor is laminated and easy to keep clean. It was just right for two people. We loved the rural location and were happy to walk to nearby Yarmouth where we loved the bird life and lovely walks. It was also fascinating to sit in the apartment and watch the ships, yachts and boats go by.

Superb location and very peaceful! Excellent views across the Solent, just open the patio doors and you're on the beach. You really can't get any better! Great walks around the Fort Victoria Country Park and along the coastal path routes. Just a short walk into Yarmouth and a coffee and cake from Grace's Bakery on the harbour side when you get there. An all round superb holiday.....

It was fantastic to have accommodation so close to the sea. It was also very close to Yarmouth, so easy to walk in, catch the bus, pick up supplies, go for a drink without taking the car.

Amazing location, directly on the beach, fabulous. Perfect for dogs and an ideal base for exploring the island, really close to the ferry port and easy walk to Yarmouth. Fantastic to sit on the patio or in the lounge with the doors open just watching the boats go by and the sunset.

A very tranquil and relaxing place to be and we can't wait to go back in March! The Sykes staff couldn't have been more helpful when it came to booking. It was very stress free.

Friendly, helpful owner and a truly romantic setting, this was our second time at Starboard and we cannot wait to go back again!

The magic from listening to the waves whilst sitting in bed. The view was fantastic. Our dog Cassie loved looking through the French windows over the Solent and walks along the sea front. The most romantic of holidays. After a long hard year of working it was everything we could have hoped to charge our batteries for a new year. You can't experience the magic truly unless you visit! Can't wait until we come back again

Loved all of it! Really relaxing holiday in a good location and accommodation. Great view and the dog loved being with us and enjoyed her morning walk along the beach. She looked very down when we returned home!

We knew exactly where the property was situated and it is in an area of the Isle of Wight we like very much. There are a number of eateries very close by (including next door) but that did not detract at all. Being directly on the beach made it very easy to take the dog for a quick stroll. I had a sneaky feeling that the quality of the property would be very high and we were not disappointed.

Amazing, the beach is right outside the patio door, woodland with walks are behind, fabulous old fort with attractions to your left, cafe with garden to your right. This place is heaven. The accomodation is basic but the location makes up for it. Cannot wait to return.

Compact but cosy, this boathouse is perfectly situated for a beachside holiday. Only 10 minutes stroll to the the village along the beach or a longer coastal walk in either direction. The dreamy can spend all day or evening just watching the boats and the changing light and waves right from the armchair, outside area or on the beach in front of the property.

From booking through Sykes with their helpful, friendly staff to being greeted by the owner of the property it was hassle free. Starboard is well equipped and comfortable and a magical place to stay with the shore on your doorstep. Everything is within easy reach of Yarmouth and you can get the ferry almost to your doorstep. It was our second stay at Starboard and we cant wait to go back. Thanks Sykes and John.
