The Wight Place - Who are we?

Our Motto: Collect Moments, Not Things

The Wight Place was born out of a passion for the Isle of Wight.

Like many people we speak to, we hadn't been to the Isle of Wight since we were kids.  As a new family we returned and fell back in the love.

The dream of having our own holiday home grew and in 2015 that dream started to become as reality.

We now look after several holiday homes and are what we call "inbetweeners".  We live on the island and the mainland, depending on work commitments and school terms.

Here at Wight Place HQ, we like to holiday, we like to take adventures and we like to stay in nice places when we do.

The importance of clean accommodation, home from home touches and something just a little bit different were top of our list when it came to choosing our own holiday stays, so we have applied the same to The Wight Place holiday rentals. After all, why would our guests be any different to us?

The holiday homes we feature at The Wight Place are all handpicked by us, we have visited them all and more often than not stayed in them.  They are unique, of a high standard and in most cases there maybe something a little quirky or different found within the 4 walls. A bath in the bedroom? A Secret Lookout? For you to discover...

We believe there is something for everyone on the Isle of Wight and we want to share our travels with others. A place to stay, blogs to inspire, and some useful information to help you plan you holiday - a personal touch in every way.

We are always happy to answer questions and give advice. You don’t need to just click and book and hope for the best. No question is a silly question. We’d love to hear from you.

Such a Great Place

Perfect for young family of four.  The kids loved the chalk boards and the toys/DVD's.

Personal touches for grown ups were great too.  Really clean and a very homely home - loved it.

The Corner House

Clean and fully functional with a lovely little sun trap.  The bath is a great feature.  The islanders are very friendly with a laid-back feel. We've enjoyed our break and can't wait to come back.  Very accommodating considering we have a 6 month old baby with us. Thank you
