We discovered Sandown Bay by chance via walking the nearby costal path to Culver Down a few years ago and fell in love with the location and consider the site a real hidden gem on what has always been a wonderful island to visit. We liked it so much we purchased our first chalet Sunrise 77 which needed a complete refurbishment in 2019.
We intended for this to be our holiday home and for friends and family to stay. Not long after chalet 128 became avalible and wanting to share the secret, we decided to start a new adventure by offering our chalets for guests to enjoy.
