About us

A sunny day, a posh coffee and a seaview

We had talked about owning a holiday home for years, and spent many hours gazing longingly in estate agents windows and searching for the right place.  We fell in love with the Isle of Wight and particularly Ventnor, for its fantastic coastline and quirky shops & cafes.  Finding Salty Holidays where we could lie in bed and listen to the waves on the beach was like a dream come true.

We have really enjoyed breathing some life back into the apartments and have been busy updating the decor and facilities with a lovely coastal theme.  I can usually be found with a paintbrush or tool box in hand! We are really proud of our fabulous trip advisor reviews and guest book comments.  

Our children, Zac & Amelie, used to love finding treasures in rockpools and playing in the island paddling pool, but now they are teenagers so these days our fast WiFi has become the main attraction! Our dogs, Dhala and Otto, love exploring the coastal path and the downs.  Guy and I love to spend a sunny day with a good book and a posh coffee, just soaking up the sea view.

We hope you will have a fantastic time here and would love you to hear about the best bits of your holiday.  We look forward to welcoming you to Ventnor.

Guy, Dawn, Zac & Amelie Giles
