About Caroline Bartholomeusz
We live on the English mainland with our 3 sons and have enjoyed annual holidays on the Isle of Wight every year since our first son was born (he was born in 1994!). In fact, Jez and I have been enjoying annual holidays on the island ever since we were children in the 1960s, when we visited every year with our own parents and families. This was many years before Jez and I met and got married and was one of the main things we had in common (apart from both supporting Crystal Palace FC too!). We love the Isle of Wight so much that whatever other holidays we have, we always make sure we spend at least one week on the island each summer and visit whenever we can during the rest of the year. Steephill Cove has always been our family's favourite place and we spend most of our time there - we enjoy its relaxed atmosphere, charm and seclusion, plus the fact that it has remained unspoiled and much the same over the years. We also love being able to eat and drink whilst sitting literally right next to the unparalleled, spectacular views of the English Channel, at The Beach Shack, our favourite venue on the cove.
Caroline Bartholomeusz purchased this House in 2007
Why Caroline Bartholomeusz chose Ventnor
We've always particularly loved the Isle of Wight and finally managed to buy a property of our own, Tara, in 2007 with a view to permanently moving there ourselves one day! With this in mind, we've made sure Tara is much more than a holiday rental property; we've used all our experience gained over many years of staying on the island to make it our second home and as such, it provides everything we would want in a 'home from home'. It really is a special place to us and if we were able to, we would certainly spend most of our time there. One important factor in deciding to buy a property on the island was to make sure it was within our 'golden' location near to Steephill Cove. When we came across Tara we immediately fell in love its location and the spectacular sea views. It's a 20 minute, beautiful coastal walk into Ventnor, and there are unlimited walks and cycle routes on the island, but nothing is very far by car!.
What makes this House unique
We especially love the sea views from Tara - the panaromic sea view from the master bedroom is wonderful, and there are also sea views from the lounge. It's also in a quiet residential cul-de-sac but is not too far away from the town or Steephill Cove (our favourite beach on the island) - both are in walkable distance. We really enjoy walking to the The Spyglass Inn, which is at the end of Ventnor promenade, and sitting outside next to the sea, eating and drinking in the evening. During the months when the evenings are light, we make the most of the stunning sea views in the area by walking to the Spyglass along the cliffs from Steephill. We have completely refurbished Tara to make sure it really is our home from home and we love spending as much time there as possible. So Tara is an ideal place to stay whatever the weather, because unlike many holiday properties, we have full Sky Package Multi-room i.e. Sport, Movies, Children's channels, in the lounge and in the master bedroom and also unlimited WiFi broadband. We have also added BT Sport in the lounge so that we can watch the sport that Sky don't offer. We have full central heating throughout to ensure it remains warm and cosy at any time of year. We recently landscaped the back garden and love relaxing there when we're not at the beach. It's a real sun trap in the summer and an ideal spot for sunbathing, but has some shaded areas for cooling off and chilling out.
